  1. Noticed something in the online polls tonight. Trump votes are ranging in the 70-80s, all the other times he was in the 40-50-60 range.

    Means lots of Cruz people have switched to Trump, perhaps not the Cruzbots, but the normal folks who were just Cruz supporters, who perhaps had Trump as their 2nd choice.

    Anyway, we’ll know tomorrow with the final counts.

    It could also mean that less people watched the debate and less had any interest in doing the polls. Will really have to compare the quantity of voters to know for sure.

    I imaging the GOPe had a collective stroke—when the Donald smiled and said “I am reaching voters across the board and we are creating a broader and more inclusive Republican party.”

      Decent analysis. The author thinks Hillary has a chance of defeating Trump with her “fighting-for-you” attitude.

      I’d be HIGHLY impressed if she was able to do that. She folded within 24 hours when Trump turned her sexism attack against her. If that’s an omen of things to come, the lead-up to November will be a slaughter that would almost make me feel bad for Hillary, were it not justice.

      I love the lies about Trump they toss out.

      “… hiring illegal workers …” and the old lady in Atlantic city.

      The illegal workers were hired by one of Trumps Contractors.

      This is an explanation put up by Ladysforest The take away is Trump met her price, even threw in a place in Florida and she turned him down. The widow then lost the place to the city for BACK TAXES not eminent Domain.

      “…The old lady eventually lost the place because of unpaid taxes.
      Is what Vera Coking and her husband paid for the 29-room boardinghouse/low income rooming house. In 1961.
      $1 million offered by Bob Guccione in 1979/1980.
      $1 million offered by Trump after Superior court denied ED.
      $530,000~Price fetched at auction.
      $995,000~ Reduced asking price prior to forced auction.
      $2M~Amount Donald Trump offered as recently as several years ago prior to the auction.
      AND – it was reported in the newspapers that Trump not only eventually offered her 2+ million, but in addition to also provide her a free place to live in Palm Beach FL for the remainder of her life….”

      The Old lady’s story is a story of GREED and God’s punishment.

      Even the writer got one thing wrong. The little old lady didn’t lose her house. She kept it until she went into a nursing home.


    • Michelle says:

      Side note–totally incorrect for the article owner to say that Trump kicked that lady out of her house so he could build a parking lot. Or that she was near the end of her life.


  4. History teaches says:

    So basically, Rubio and Cruz dutifully followed Shapiro and Limbaugh’s advice. And were easily refuted and revealed to be desperate and robotic. Trump just going by instinct and intelligence stood as the only authentic person in the race. What a difference between empty headed politicians who live by donor talking points and a savvy real world, no nonsense pragmatic thinker with a lifetime of business and leadership experience.

    Trump may be a trailblazer who changes politics for years to come. But he has to think carefully about finding serious ‘apprentices’ for the future to carry on the transformation. With his resources he and his team ought to develop their own think tanks, mentorships, scholarships, seminars on real world problem solving. He will be position to initiate a real grass roots movement in the world of practical politics as well as in the educational domain. If he can begin to deligitimimize the ‘beltway’ tradition then the power base of the establishment will face long term competition from the very outset. A younger generation inspired by Trump will insure a very different political landscape than we have have been trapped with for decades.

    And do not underestimate his influence worldwide. If he becomes the President and enacts the basics of his vision then the dynamics of many other political systems will be morphed in that direction. Not coincidental that Reagan was aligned with compatible figures like Thatcher and Mulroney, despite weaknesses abducted compromises in some of their domestic agendas. The bigger world picture needs to be moved into a Trump sphere of influence. Respect and mutual objectives create longer term advantages. Especially economically and security wise.

      None of those shills and booksellers are supporting Trump.

      He’s a liberal hack, used to like him until his anti Trump attacks. He does make sense sometimes, nice videos, but that’s about it. Isn’t he from the National Review crowd? That should sum up his moronism.

      Dallas poll that came out TODAY has Trump 6% over Felito in Dallas area, with Felito just barely tying Trump in “rest of Texas”, whatever that means. 6% in Dallas area is HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS in vote numbers, while even numbers in, say, Odessa, is what, couple thousand difference?

      By the looks of it, and with the debate today crushing Felito plus a few days’ worth of Trump rallies in TX come weekend I see a nice win for Trump in Felito’s home state. That pretty much puts last nail in that coffin. And Lubio in FL come March 15th.

      Felito pulled out of AL today, BTW, Meaning numbers there are way beyond salvaging and also most likely meaning his finances are done.

      Just watched Whittle’s January 28th piece on Trump. It struck me as a reasonable plea for unity against Hillary/Sanders and an acknowledgement that Trump isn’t the perfect conservative candidate. He says he gets the passion driving Trump supporters and the concerns honest Conservatives have about him.

      There are Trump haters enough but based on that I don’t count Whittle among them, and wouldn’t use the GOPe label on him.

      Frankly I’d love to hear Trump talk more about shrinking government or reigning in BLM and the IRS, but nothing overrides the need to destroy the current Uniparty monopoly devoted to growing Fedzilla for the benefit of the donor class.

      I’m not ready to scorn Whittle based on that video. I agreed with much of it. Trump isn’t infallible or beyond conservative reproach, but he’s miles better than any other choice.


      • Gail Combs says:

        Trump talks in his books about the major problem of red tape strangling American business. He is comming at it from a different direction but that equates to shrinking the federal government. Especially when you add in his opposition to the federal government in education and healthcare.

        I hope he has his cabinet order all branches to go through and streamline and rewrite the regs into 100 pages max of plain English!

      All Obummer has to do is have his buddies at Duke Energy to shut down their grid and get Al Sharpton to get his organizers to lead the riots in the eastern cities.

      Duke ‘lent’ the Obama campaign $$$ and then forgave the loan. Duke Energy is committed to Sustainability and when they shut down a coal plant they blow it up.

      The Grid should be going ‘unstable’ sometime this year.

      “…It should be further noted that the North American Reliability Corporation’s (NERC) modeling of the MACT rule and CSAPR estimate that under the worst case, or “strict” scenarios, 16,350 GW of electricity capacity will be closed due to the regulations, and the Department of Energy’s (DOE) “stringent” test shows that only 21 GW of generating capacity will be closed. Even though NERC’s estimate is much lower than what our analysis shows, NERC is concerned that the closures will cause electricity reliability problems. How much greater will the reliability problems be, given that retirements appears to be nearly twice as great as NERC estimates?…”

    A leader, top notch negotiator, genius!
    This is all garbadge! He takes on a task, & gets it done! This mess you have to prove yourself, to people so much less than Trump! It’s like the teacher, taking directions from

    The Crubio twins spent so much time attempting to knock down Trump that neither of them managed talk about anything that the American People care about. Trump once again was the only man on the stage talking about the actual issues that matter. He looked as professional as he has been to date and when it came time to hit back at them, he crushed them both at the same time.

    Crubio are still trying to win the nomination as Trump moves on to winning the election, this much is clear. I also wonder when they will get it that we want someone who puts America first and not the GOP? Sure there is about 10%, maybe less, of the US population that puts party first and America second (mostly politicians). However, isn’t that exactly what the majority of people are sick of on both sides of the political divide? Do they really think they will win the election being so far right that only 5% of the population is far enough right for them?

    Do we actually have to walk abound with an AR-15, Bible, Flag and Pro-life sign all at the same time to be considered conservative? Is it ok that we just support those things which make America a great place to live and want it to be even better? Yes I love my guns, I’m a Christian and an Infantry Vet but do I literally have to carry them around to be a conservative? Seems like it is according to Crubio.

    Time to put America first.

      I am glad Trump is skirting the pro-abortion issue because that is a major trap in the general election and we have a heck of a lot bigger issues to deal with.

      As a friend, who is also an Independent put it.
      “I want the Democrats out of the back of my pants and the Republicans out of the front of my pants!”

      Remember those independents are the deciders in the general election.

      And Yes Planned Parenthood should not get federal funds and neither should World Wild Life or any of the rest of the NGOs. None of the independents will have a problem with that.

    Trump is crushing it in all the online polls. His candidacy has all of the energy and enthusiasm behind it. Rubio could never inspire the same level of energy that Trump does. This is why Trump is actually the MOST electable GOP candidate, not Rubio.

    Politicians are all talk, no action. Washington politicians are bought and paid for by the lobbyists, Trump is self funding.

    The whole debate was nothing but a cage match, RNC (stacked audience) and the network ($) got what they wanted, Americans didn’t. There was one thing worthwhile that stood out, and that was the hand of the lobbyists and donors was visible and you could see who they wanted, NOT Trump.

    March 1 will be payback and it will be satisfying.

    I voted for Obama twice hoping he would ease racial strife. Of course, he has made it much, much worse. I have not voted for a Republican since Reagan. I liked Donald Trump right from the get-go, especially right from the first debate where Megyn Kelly went after him. I am a democrat/independent who solidly backs Trump. How many others are there out there like me who are switching parties? But if Trump doesn’t get the nomination, I might vote democrat again. Republican Party needs Trump!!


  25. mysticrose80 says:

    Honestly, I think this is one of Trump’s best performances to date (and a yuuge comeback from the CBS debacle, although he did his very best surviving that bloodbath). He was calm yet firm and was successful in avoiding the traps set in place by the temper-tantrum Cuban twins. To his credit, Kasich held his own and handled disagreement in a mature manner (unlike said Cuban twins). Glad that he dropped the desperate act that annoyed me during the earlier debates. Ben was…..well, Ben :).

    If anyone thought that either Cruz (the basket case) or Rubio (the choke artist…hah, learned a little something last night) had a good night, I’d would have to question his/her sense of reality. I’m aware that they were the designated attack dogs, but they came across as immature, unhinged, and just plain desperate.


  26. pawatcher says:

    From the start of the debate Rubio looked jumpy, but the disdain he showed to Dr. Carson was disgusting. He turned his back and didn’t shake his hand- that was just another example of his robot jumpy behavior.
    Cruz didn’t shake with Kascinch either- they were wrong not to shake.
    Cruz did shake Trumps hand after Trump looked him straight in the eye. Then he did the same to Rubio- Rubio was hesitant but, did shake hands.
