    It needs to be pointed out how Bush has been reduced to only discussing Trump. Whenever the media has him on, that’s all they want to hear from him.

    If he wasn’t attacking Trump, he wouldn’t even be worth talking to. How sad is that? I can’t believe he didn’t drop out long ago.

    I’ve heard many people complain about Don Lemon. I don’t know of his work, other than when he interviews Trump. And when he does that, he sounds perfectly reasonable to me–respectful.

    Trump gets to answer the question in full, without interruption from Lemon. He might be all screwed up elsewhere, I guess, but IMO not when he’s interviewing Trump.

    And Trump once again shined. Beat the snot out of R.E.F. Cruz on the shoddy record-keeping, and the ‘faulty’ memory. OUCH.

    • Lemon is great — as long as Trump lays off the Clintons that is. All republican candidate exposing is welcome but don’t touch Hillary! Trump knows this and uses to his advantage. He’ll touch on Hillary to a point and knows how to read Lemon when he’s going to far and he pulls back. CNN let him go into detail about Canadian Cruz as much as he wanted I noticed.

      Even bagging on Bernie is acceptable to a certain extent, JUST NO BASHING HILL & BILL!

      I have watched every Lemon-interview of Trump and it always the same; Lemon is his typically snarky self prior to it, he then transforms into the respectful choir boy during the interview, and then Lemon snaps back to his high-minded Liberal-self for every interview, analysis thereafter. LEMON IS TERRIFIED OF TRUMP and doesn’t want to get balled-out by him, period end of story. Not unlike Cuomo in the morning, these people are classically passive aggressive in the extreme.

        I agree with you about Lemon. He let’s Trump talk, but he really has no choice as he’s intimidated by The Donald – and it’s the only time he gets ratings. But as soon as the interview is over he “discusses” it with an all out anti-Trump attack panel. And whenever he gives Trump a long platform like this, he devotes the following night to trashing Trump in the worst possible way. So if you tune in tonight, don’t be surprised to hear detailed explanations about how Trump is a racist, authoritarian (code for nazi), sexist reality show celebrity who offers no substance and landers to racist, sexist, angry older white men who are poorly educated. Lemon is consistent & predictable.

    I’m pretty confident that Trump will win Iowa.

    The Iowa evangelicals (Dominionists) always get a lot of attention because they’re the ones who show up. Ron Paul did pretty good 4 years ago by mobilizing his small dedicated following.

    It only takes about 30,000 people to win Iowa in a typical year.
    I do believe that huge numbers will show up for Trump this time. numbers unlike what has ever been seen for Republicans in Iowa before, far exceeding the Democrats’ 2008 turnout.

    This huge influx will completely swamp the Evangelical (Dominionist) vote. I’m sure Ted Cruz will get over 30,000, maybe even 40,000. But Trump will get over 100,000.

    And there is an insurance policy, should the numbers not materialize to that extent for Trump, Governor Branstad has put out the word that Cruz must be defeated at all costs.

    So let’s say Ted Cruz gets 40,000 voters, and Trump only has 35,000. It’s neck and neck and it looks like Cruz is going to eek it out. Well… it’s a caucus. You can change your vote. If your candidate doesn’t meet a threshold, you go and join a different candidate’s caucus.

    Branstad’s machine will be out in force. Maybe they’ll be working for Christie. But they switch to the guy who can defeat Cruz. That is priority #1.

            It’s an interesting question – to which I don’t know the answer – but it doesn’t matter much. Iowa only has 30 GOP delegates. The results on the night of Feb 1 matter more than whether Trump ends up with 10 or 15 delegates from Iowa. Taken across the entire country, though, the rules matter a lot, of course.

              Iowa matters not for the delegates coming out of it, but the narrative coming out of it.
              If people don’t turn out for Trump then the media will go into New Hampshire saying Trump is all bark and no bite, people only show up to rallies for the celebrity and spectacle, and the Trump phenomenon is all smoke and mirrors. That would have the effect of depressing turnout in later states, and such a scenario can send a juggernaut into a tailspin, as what happened to Howard Dean in 2004.

              That is the story they really want to write. So Trump needs a turnout to match the hype. If that happens, and he blow Iowa out of the water, then he goes into the rest of the contests with momentum, and people wanting to be part of it.

            So whichever delegates go to the Republican National Convention are bound by the national party rules, but it’s totally different delegates at the Iowa State Convention and the Iowa Republican party has its own rules which says the Caucus results are non-binding.

          I was aware of it about 15 years ago. C.Peter Wagner of the New Apostolic movement may be where it started from here in America. He teaches that in these later days there will be new apostles with more power than the original 12. ‘Joel’s army’ is tied into it also. Lots of misinterpretations from the old test. prophecy passages are twisted out of context to give power to man and to demote God to our servant. There is a lot of similarities with the Word of Faith heresies but these fellas take it to a whole new level.

            Hmm, that “Joel’s army” thing sounds familiar. Is that something Paul Cain used to preach? Sounds just like it. When I was a child, my childhood church, Vineyard, welcomed Paul Cain in. They eventually got rid of all the weird stuff, but by then their reputation was very, very damaged, between Paul Cain and barking like a dog being a new gift of the Holy Spirit.

            Disclaimer: As an adult, I do not attend Vineyard, so I have no idea what they are into these days, other than the usual social gospel stuff a la Rick Warren. Hopefully they’ve stayed the course away from the weirdness.

      Trump has explained this aspect of his perspective on life, and it bespeaks his maturity, his good nature and his good judgment.

      Despite philosophical differences or despite personal factors regarding others, Trump’s default position is that he likes people, he respects people, he tries to see the good in people, and he neither casts the first stone nor judges lest he be judged. He speaks well of people whenever he can. IOW Trump is a big person, not a petty person. He is a peacemaker and conciliator.

      He is loyal to a fault, and gracious to a fault. But if you lie about him, or treat him shabbily, or are disloyal to him, he will not forgive, and he will defend himself. He confessed in the first debate that this lack of forgiveness was a fault of his. I believed him when he said it, and admired him as being the rare politician who actually cites an actual “weakness” or “fault” and not a phony one.

      Cruz is campaigning in New Hampshire right now, so that is probably where they’re talking about.

      But all of his events are held in pizza parlours and diners and hardware stores where he has 10 to 20 people standing around him.

      That’s a lot of events he’ll have to hold to get there. Which is why it’s odd that he’s campaigning in New Hampshire right now when Iowa is must win for him and he’s not expected to do well in new Hampshire. By spending 5 days there 2 weeks before the Iowa caucus while Trump is barnstorming with Sarah Palin, Cruz has taken himself out of the conversation at the most critical time. And now there will be an expectation for him to finish a strong 2nd in New Hampshire. If he finishes 3rd or 4th in Iowa, or 4th or 5th in New Hampshire, it’s over for him.

      What would be really great is if Rand Paul pulled out a huge surprise and came in 2nd. All of this bible-thumping from Televangelist Ted has got to be turning off all of those Ron Paul supporters who Ted thinks will show up for him. They might show up for Rand now, instead.

          We should always view such skeptical “concern” with a cynical eye. In the last 2 weeks there has been much “concern” trolling here, seeking to plant doubt in the minds of Trump supporters. If, at this late stage, one is suddenly “concerned” that Trump is a fraud … well that is MOST curious.

          I realize we should avoid stereotype, but I could not help noticing how “careful” they were with money, to a person. This is a good thing, and something I would like to see FINALLY in an effective president. Sounds like The Donald.

      There is a 100% chance that Jeb, Cruz and Rubio are uniparty amnesty globalist establishment tools. So if there is even a remote chance that Trump isn’t, logic requires voting for Trump.

      I don’t even have to go to the link to know this is an article by Ed Straker, right?? He (whoever it is) posts a diatribe every single day about how Cruz is do much better than Trump because ___________________ (fill in the blank). Most of the commentary is not fact based, but histrionic babbling. I’ve posted replies a couple times but have pretty much given up as it’s a lost cause. He’s just a plant. That’s all. You can safely ignore anything this author posits.

    Donald Trump is formidable. That man has nerves of steel. He is brilliant. He has a brilliant mind.
    He makes his opponents whether media or political look like “slippery snake oil salesmen”
    I can’t tell you how many times he is asked a question that makes me think how exactly do you respond to that?
    And seconds later he blows me away and transcends any “bait” with common sense.
    He has managed to make Jeb Bush look weak and dopey and ineffectual and Ted Cruz slick and insincere and maybe that’s mostly to a large extent because that’s what they are.
    I not only think Donald Trump would make an exceptional President, I also really respect and admire his calm strength. He is being pounded on from all sides but he is not fazed or intimidated in the slightest. Anyway I’m reading art of the deal now. Can’t believe I never found the time before.

    Regarding the situation with the Flint MI water:
    I like that he says it is not only the governor’s fault, even though he is accepting blame. Whatever els he is, and I don’t know much about him, at least he isn’t among the “not my fault” crowd and willing to say, in his state “the buck stops here.”
    I am so tired of a situation being “solved” by throwing one person out a sacrificial lamb, for others responsible to hide behind.
    Trump didn’t come out and say what he would do, but anybody in the EPA can clearly see and hear a shot over their particular bow! I have no doubt heads would roll.

    The Rush comments. TOTALLY STUPID. TRUMP easily lets other people shine. I was wondering where that meme was coming from. What a jacka$$. And everyone who has repeated it since falls into that same category.

    last night, Hannity had Cruz extensively on his program…where Cruz went WAY OFF on claiming that Trump has the full establisment backing and support….that is CRAZY, but is the new Cruz mantra it looks like, while Ted claims to be the only REAL CONSERVATIVE candidate on the primary ticket….makes no sense to those that are following this….I thought theGOPe were using Cruz to take out Trump so that then they could take out Cruz for their own favorite candidate at the time…

    but this: on Powerline:
    Posted on January 21, 2016 by Paul Mirengoff in 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz

    Is the establishment “rushing to support ” Trump?

    Ted Cruz is campaigning on the idea that the “establishment” is uniting behind GOP frontrunner Donald Trump. He told reporters in New Hampshire:

    We’re seeing something remarkable happening in this Republican primary. Right now, the Washington establishment is abandoning Marco Rubio, they’ve made the assessment that Marco can’t win this race, and the Washington establishment is rushing over to support Donald Trump. We’re seeing that happen every day, and Mr. Trump is welcoming that support. 
    

    The great thing about railing against the “Washington establishment” is that you never have to identify whom you mean. Thus, you can say pretty much whatever you want about it without fear of being proven wrong.

    Cruz’s allegation tests the limits of this proposition. The only major figure I’m aware of who has “rushed to support Trump” lately is Sarah Palin.

    Who better embodies the establishment than the folks who gather in Davos for the World Economic Forum? This year’s participants include Eric Cantor, the former Republican House Majority Leader and now vice chairman of Moelis & Company. Cantor’s defeat in the Republican primary last year was unanimously viewed as a stunning repudiation of the establishment (albeit a repudiation by a relatively small number of voters).

    How does the Davos gathering view the rise of Donald Trump? With dismay. Bloomberg Business reports:

    The prospect of Trump in the White House is ratcheting up anxiety among the 2,500 business and political leaders gathered at the Swiss ski resort for the annual World Economic Forum. With less than two weeks before voting in primaries gets under way and Trump in the Republican Party lead, those who fear a rise in protectionism and economic mismanagement are speaking out against the billionaire property developer. 
    

    Cantor expresses the establishment’s dismay:

    Unfortunately I do think that if there were to be a Trump administration the casualty would likely be trade. That’s a very serious prospect for the world. 
    

    Personally, I’m not convinced that “trade” would suffer in a Trump presidency. But then, I’m not part of the establishment under any sensible definition (nor am I supporting Trump).

    If one takes what Trump says seriously, though, the establishment has every reason to oppose him, even if doing so entails supporting Cruz (which, as I argue below, is not the case yet). Trump is running as a populist. The establishment has more to fear from populism than Cruz’s Reagan-style conservatism. Kenneth Jacobs, chairman and chief executive of the international investment bank Lazard, warns:

    The history of populism in democracy is not great, and it’s not self-correcting in a lot of cases. You only have to look to Europe between the two wars and to a number of the Latin American countries prewar and postwar to see that. 
    

    The establishment has always feared no one more the “man on a white horse.” They fear him now, even if he’s actually a fat-cat in a stretch limo.

    Cruz would argue that the “establishment” thinks it can cut deals with Trump, whereas he (Cruz) is incorruptible. There may be some in the establishment who believe they could deal with Trump (and they may well be right). But the evidence from Davos suggests that this is not the prevailing view.

    Moreover, no one knows for sure how Trump would behave as president. Thus, at a time when not one voted has been cast and when Trump and Cruz combined poll only slightly better than 50 percent, it would be rash for the establishment to view all alternatives to the two poll leaders as hopeless.

    The time may come when the “establishment” feels it must choose between Trump and Cruz. When that time comes, my guess is that the establishment will divide. But it has not come yet.

    HELLO, WTF is going on here anyway????

    Trump should refer to Ted Cruz once in a while by his given name of “Rafael.” In the 1988 GOP primaries Bush 1 replied to fellow candidate “Pete” DuPont in a debate by saying “let me help you out with that Pierre.” DuPont never recovered.

    They should ask Trump if he will deport Cruz if found to be Canadian illegally holding public office.
