Donald Trump Sunday Talk – ABC “This Week”…

Donald Trump appeared on ABC’s “This Week” with Jonathan Karl. After the National Enquirer ran a report with allegations of Senator Ted Cruz‘s infidelity.  Senator Cruz accused Donald Trump‘s campaign of involvement. Trump today called that allegation “disgraceful” and reaffirmed that neither he, nor his campaign, had anything to do with it:

      I am confused. A while back there was a tweet from Trump and it was called BS because there was no ‘blue check’ next to his name.
      I still do not know much more than that about Twitter, just what little I have picked up here at CTH.
      n3angus’ Amanda Carpenter’s twitter post and Golden Phoenix’s Bryan Crabtree’s twitter post has me wondering if these are fake Twitter accounts, as there isn’t a ‘blue check’ on them.
      I checked on CTH’s March 27th-2016 Presidential Election-Open Discussion to find a tweet and there was one that NHVoter posted from ABC’s ‘This Week’ and it does have the ‘blue check’ next to ‘This Week’.
      Yes, I am old and not Twitter savvy at all.
      Can anyone explain this to me?

        if you have a “verified” account on twitter it means twitter is vouchsafing that the account owner is “really them” ie whatever pseudo celebrity or public figure the account apparently belongs to.

        Without the blue check it could be a fake, parody or spoof account.

        People unfamiliar with that system just shouldn’t get all up in it at all.

      • Not everyone has the blue checks. Examples are Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Scarlet lettered Amanda Carpenter. In those cases one must read through the tweets and check who they’re following and even google to determine. In some cases it is hard to do. Even there is a fake Sheriff Joe twitter and now according to the Scarlet lettered Amanda there is now a fake one for her too.

        Sheriff Joe: https://twitter.com/RealSheriffJoe
        Amanda Carpenter: https://twitter.com/amandacarpenter


        The woman was required to wear a red letter “A” as punishment, which at that time served as a form of public shaming for people who strayed outside their marriage vows and committed Adultery, hence the letter “A”.

        This morning on your website I watched a video of Trump being interviewed by a blondish haired guy with glasses. He asked Donald what you you say to a new poll which has come out which states that 30% of Republican voters want to see the party pick the nominee. Of course its not true because the other day I read on Gateway that Republican voters were standing firm that the Primary voters should decide the nominee. So what’s happening here? It appears to me that the E’s are going for this believing they can sell the voters on the candidate they choose. Please listen to this video again and tell me what you think.

        In regard to sanctuary cities, Reno is considered to be one. However, the illegal immigrant ghetto is in Sparks, an adjacent city. The fact is that it is the Washoe County Sheriff Department that is providing the sanctuary.

        I have researched “sanctuary cities” in Kansas and have found similar situations where the county sheriff is behind the sanctuary. Garden City, Kansas is a good example where the Finney County sheriff provides sanctuary for illegal immigrants working in the meat packing industry.

        The real culprits are influential corporations wanting “slave” labor. Tyson and Cargill are examples.

          Until the left gets its long-overdue comeuppance, sanctuary cities will thrive.
          If however Mr. Trump, as President, moves to deny federal dollars to said cities, we may begin to turn the corner on this particular issue.

          Don’t let Catholic Charities and Lutheran Family Services off the hook (other churches as well are involved). They get tax money for resettling muslims here. It’s disgusting and so very deeply evil.

          I don’t understand how it continues. Are Catholics generally aware or generally unaware of what Catholic Charities is up to? Same with Lutheran Family Services – do average Lutherans even KNOW that their organization is behind so much of the immigration? Do the congregations know and keep silent because they all benefit from the money? IS it all about the money for them?

          Confusing to me that anyone claiming to be a Christian would hate his own neighbors so much that he would actively participate in their destruction.

            I read that many of the charities who collect federal money for resettling refugees are religious in name only–not actually connected to a diocese or organized religious group. Those who ARE connected to actual church organizations should have their tax exemption status removed. I’m a Christian but religious charitable organizations should raise money through the passing of the plate–not via federal funding with my tax dollars. The problem is that some churches are running short on membership and therefore, money–

          • I am Catholic and I can tell you that the average Catholic does NOT know that the church receives government funds for resettling muslims.
            Background- the churches/parishes themselves almost never bring up the subject of Catholic Charities. In the old days, it was a once a year collection. Now, Catholic Charities themselves solicits contributions from me, frequently, via snail mail, because I’ve donated in the past. Their letters, and the attached check-sized return envelopes, highlight the local charities assisted by contributions. There is no mention of resettlement or any funds received from the government. I only learned about it through websites. I no longer contribute.
            The Catholic Church, IMHO, cannot on one hand oppose ObamaCare and its forced abortion funding while at the same time taking tax dollars to “resettle” a non-assimilating culture whose ideology is violently anti-christian.

            Catholic Charities is a public service organization; it is no longer under the direct auspices of the RCC any more than Caritas International or Faith-Based Initiatives is truly under Church auspices. I don’t know anything about Lutheran Family Services…but if they belong to the same umbrella group as CC, then they are likely not governed by the Lutheran Church (or perhaps not the Missouri Synod…the Evangelical Lutherans seem to be a bit…out there…for my ecumenical tastes, and they might be ok with it).
            That said, I have seen Catholic Charities do many good things — around here, before they were disbanded, they were the only ones who treated the poor with any amount of good will (the Salvation Army is embroiled in scandal where I live, so is Goodwill; they have treated people like, well, garbage) — so there are some local branches that keep to the original purpose and do good.

            But to the point of the topic: On one hand, I can see the problem: charity is one of the tenets of the faith — you are supposed to care for souls and give them sanctuary (and indeed, there are many who are in need and are deserving) — churches by their nature are not supposed to give a tinker’s about nationalism or national borders; they are supposed to be shepherds for all. A good Christian is not to turn their backs on others.
            On the other, our government has made it nearly impossible for the good and oppressed to enter and quite easy for the out-law and the bad to enter. And our government has gotten itself quite wedged into what were once church only driven charities (and in this the churches have allowed themselves to be played by the princes)…a conflict of interest between church and state.

        I agree Tona & cat: despite the questions which were all designed to entrap Trump or generate sound bites to be used out of context later, Trump was effortlessly sending back over the net to whoever that idiot hitman was asking.

        I think my favorite was when he was asked if the sparring back and forth should stop and Trump said he didn’t care, he is not initiating anything, but it is in his nature to defend.
        They call it a “strategic offensive”, the best defense is a good offence.

            It really isn’t necessary to become an appointed thread monitor. If you have a point to discuss with another commenter, then by all means do that.

            Don’t parse what you think is the meaning of another person’s comment, and then define who is a “friend” and who is not. It is a step too far. Sundance can monitor the comments, along with the rest of our administrative team (that’s why we are here).

Note further above there has been carelessness from the same commenter and others pointed it out. For the record I wasn’t defining ‘friend’.

      I agree, especially with Savage. I was really surprised to hear him dog Cruz so much when Cruz attacked Trump supporters as “low information” voters. Then this past Friday he attacks Trump and threatens to drop his support because of the National Enquirer article, and praises Cruz’s response to the Brussels attacks. Very strange indeed.

        I’ve been listening to him for the last couple of weeks and understand your point. He especially came hard after Cruz for blaming Trump for the left wing agitators at his rallies. I noticed a lot of Cruz supporters call in. He may not want to alienate them by jumping in on the scandal, but it’s disappointing he would kind of point the finger at Trump. Why should Trump disavow something he had nothing to do with; he doesn’t know if the allegations are true or false.

    • In my humble opinion, Mr. Cruz was skillfully packaged during the last few years. I remember that, early on, a special website was being pushed. The website was advertised as a way for people to find which candidate matched their political leanings. It was aimed at people who consider themselves to be conservatives. After going through the various questions presented, a “match” was made to which candidate you should like. No matter how you answered the questions, it just “happened” that Mr. Cruz was the candidate who always fit your political beliefs.

    • We have to realize the purpose of tabloid talk radio: to peddle anger, complaining, and frustration. They are shows and shows are entertainment build around a host which nowadays are called STARS.

      None of them will survive without this because IT’S WHAT THEY DO, THEIR PURPOSE.

      In the old days men gathered in pubs where the news of the day, politics were discussed, argued about and complaints, bravado waged over beer, coffee and whatnot. After the invention of radio and TV this moved into the media taking its place on a large scale. Now it has become a BUSINESS. A big snot-ball multi-million dollar conglomerate of the news of the day mixed in with bravado, peddling anger, frustration, complaining, and LIES. No longer is it open discussion, it now has rules and stars and fans.

      The media is now broken up into SHOWS. Shows are ENTERTAINMENT. They have HOSTS. The hosts are now STARS. The “show” is THE STAR’S SHOW and the show is now about THEM, the STAR. More on what a “star” is later but star is a fallen angel, aka an IDOL.

      Michael Savage SHOW (the STAR of the SHOW is Michael Savage)
      Mark Leviathan SHOW (the STAR of the SHOW is Mark Leviathan)
      Rush Limbaugh SHOW (the STAR of the SHOW is Rush Limbaugh)
      Hannity SHOW (the STAR of the SHOW is Sean Hannity)
      and so on and so forth.

      YOU = the target market audience, a fan, “fan” comes from the word FANATIC

      ENTERTAINMENT: Entertain comes from the juxtaposition of French entre which comes from Latin Inter both words meaning ‘together, or among’, and Latin tenere, which means ‘to hold’.

      So, literally, entertain means to ‘hold or support together’. Therefore, when you are entertaining a crowd, you are holding together their attention and amusement, naturally a crowd gathers together at a place if it possesses a certain awe of a thing in common.

      Rush was not pushing Cruz from the very first day. In fact, it was conspicuous last summer how little Limbaugh ever even mentioned Cruz. Rush was pushing Scott Walker at this time last year–HARD. When Walker dropped out and Trump gained traction, Rush sounded very supportive of Trump for many months–still relegating Cruz to a background mention now and then. But something happened all of a sudden after the New Year, and Rush turned almost on a dime against Trump and started pushing Cruz overtly in January.

    Normally when an alleged scandal is put out in the public arena there is coalescence behind the accused candidate as a natural reaction. What I see in this interview with Trump is the ending of that phase. Cruz’s accusation of Trump being responsible for the National Enquirer article is increasingly becoming apparent to more that it was a deflection tactic and has been shot down (Rick Wilson’s “The Thing” + ‘Anonymous’). On top of this we have the little matter of the rights bought to the GQ shoot and coordination of campaigns with Super-PACs.

    On to the next phase, which instinctively feels like it will unfurl over the coming week…

    • Trump was great and right as usual. He’s RIGHT Nato is obsolete and based on the old cold war and that the countries involved are not the right ones for the fight on terror. GOOD 🙂

      Also good he explained the difference between him simply counterpunching by retweeting a tweet vs. Cruz going out and purchasing the rights to Melania’s photo and using it to muddy the waters for UTAH voters. GOOD 🙂

      I was wondering why Trump didn’t say that the affair story was cooked up months ago by others in the Rubio camp long before he ever tweeted “spilling the beans on Heidi.” But probably he didn’t want to open up that can of worms and for him it was more important to get the facts out about Melania’s photo rights being purchased by Cruz people with Cruz being in approval of it. GOOD 🙂

      The interviewer was trying to push Trump into some statement on the guns issue by way of using the petition and when he saw Trump wouldn’t bite, dropped the petition angle and tried just to get Trump to talk about guns in the convention hoping they could get an off the cuff not thought out statement the media could use to make Trump look like some crazed violent gun person. Trump also didn’t take that bait. GOOD 🙂

      Missing like the elephant in the room was any mention of Easter or HAPPY EASTER which I found odd. Unless it was prerecorded or ?

      Amen to that. His point on NATO being obsolete and not set up to handle the terrorist threat was right on the money. I think so many of us have been conditioned to believe that a politician that gives us heavily rehearsed answers out of briefing books is knowledgeable and smart. Mr. Trump tells it blunt, simple English that every person can understand where he’s coming from. His opponents say he’s an empty suit, but notice how from immigration to economics to terrorism it’s Mr. Trump setting the agenda and everyone else following his lead. He’s smarter than everyone gives him credit for,but he doesn’t BS the general public with a bunch of nuanced, consultant approved political speak. It’s blunt, honest talk. So badly missing from the national debate.

    Also I think Ted Cruz owes Donald Trump an apology. This entire episode shows that Cruz lacks the judgement and the temperament required for POTUS – and that’s even if these allegations turn out to be false. If true, then Cruz needs to resign the Senate and go home. He’s an embarrassment, and if he was capable of shame, he should be consumed by it. I guess when you start with adultery, bearing false witness is just another one of those Commandments for other people. Same with that whole taking God’s name in vain thingy.

    The next Sunday, he went to church and sat at the back. The sermon was about the Ten Commandments. He sat through the whole sermon and, instead of sneaking out with someone’s hat, he went to talk to the minister.

    He said to the minister, “Preacher, I came here today to steal a hat to replace the one I lost, but after hearing your sermon on the Ten Commandments, I changed my mind.

    The minister said, “Bless you my son. Was it when I started to preach about “thou shall not steal”, that changed your heart?

    I’ve coined a new term called “EMOTIONAL LEVERAGE” based on the idea that SJWs and also people such as hard core Cruzbots are just completely attached to emotions and are not at all able to think in logical terms, so no amount of facts will effect them. The MSM, and even Talk Show hosts such as Rush, Levin, Beck and now Savage know this so they all try to use emotions to steer their viewers and listeners.

    Many people have Red Pilled and broken away from these controlled Propaganda Sources, but, for now, they still hold sway over many who are not capable of exploring in any depth on the obvious outcomes of further mass immigration and it’s destruction of the Western World, and it’s form of C9ivilization.

    The GOPe and it’s propaganda arms seldom bother with facts as they simply lie and then “double down” most of the time when exposed. These lies are simply emotional appeals, and only work on the deluded, yet there is still tons of people that need to “fit in” and are afraid to really even look at the truth, even when it is right in front of their eyes.

    Since you can’t reach these people wit simple facts, only further shocks will startle them into seeing the desperation that not only America, but all of Western Civilization is going through .

      Trumps IQ makes him smarter than 99.99% of the people on this planet. Plus hes been an internationally renowned businessman, best selling author and celebrity since the 80s. He knows about the world because he does business around the world and has heavy hitter friends in every country who tell him whats really going on. He even has friends in the Ukraine who are keeping him up to speed. Then there’s Ted who’s been a Senator for a couple years, the only foreign country he’s probably visited personally is America, who gets his foreign policy advice from the Bush neocons who got us into Iraq. No contest on who is qualified to be POTUS. Ted needs to go back to practicing law.

    It’s a good interview in which Donald Trump acknowledges how the system is corrupt in the way delegates are given to Ted Cruz in states where he lost, similar to Clinton receiveing delegates than Sanders in states where she lost. Élections are usually stolen, but now you can see it in the open. We would think that this transparency will make them unsuccessful this time, but we will see. I hope people of good will have a good plan that Donald Trump is not defrauded from his nomination and election.

    Remember when Trump threatened FORD about moving to Mexico. He took a lot of flack (incoming)
    for his comments. Now this, in a letter to Trump, Mark Fields, C.E.O of Ford, gives Donald an outline of company plans. Not president yet, and getting a response is huge, IMO.

    So, all of DC, all the GOP, all the RNC, all the world’s lyin’ media form into a great Cruz-Bot and Take On Trump … and that great legion of lyin’ beast-bots get smashed, and smashed, and smashed, over and over again … and he hasn’t even started on Hillary … yet …

    Now really, what sort of a suicidal idiot would you have to be to still want to stand in the breach between Donald and Hillary?

    It’s like he’s mercifully giving the world a demonstration of why they should repent and walk away from every support and structure of The Current System, from the penthouse to the sewer … while they still can …

    I have a copy of a tweet from Amanda Carpenter dated 12/22/2015.

    It says: “Daddy Cruz is coming to get you Washington Post”.

    Amanda Carpenter was calling Ted Cruz “Daddy”.

    Excellent interview.

    Trump clearly has his eyes wide-open. Understands the threat and speaks with candor to it.

    As he stated, the worst terror here in our homeland is more probable than not yet to come…

    If/When it does, should Trump be our Commander in chief at that time, he is by no means fixing to fiddle-fart in his dealing with the source—the reason—behind the terror committed in obedience to the Islamic “sacred text.”

    In brief.

    *** CLUB OF THE CLUB FOR GROWTH….
    Little Rock’s Warren Stephens spends millions against Trump

    By Zachary Mider Bloomberg News
    This article was published March 22, 2016 at 5:45 a.m.

    NEW YORK — He’s a billionaire who took over his father’s business and expanded it ambitiously. Over the years, he’s owned fine wines, a fleet of jets and an exclusive golf course, and has handed out money to politicians in both parties.

    There end the similarities between Warren Stephens and Donald Trump. As Trump moves toward the Republican presidential nomination, Stephens, an investment banker from Little Rock, has emerged as one of the real-estate mogul’s deepest-pocketed opponents within the party.

    With Trump leading in the delegate count, his Republican opponents are focused on preventing him from winning the outright majority that would guarantee his nomination. A trio of conservative groups not affiliated with any candidate has spent about $28 million against him, mostly on negative ads that aired in the past few weeks. So far, the effort has failed to dent his popularity.

    Stephens and his brother, Jackson “Steve” Stephens Jr., gave a total of $3.5 million last month to two of these groups, according to filings Sunday with the Federal Election Commission, on top of $500,000 last year.

    The filings show only one other family, the Ricketts clan of Omaha, Neb., that’s a bigger contributor to the stop-Trump campaign, having given $5 million since January. Other backers of the effort revealed in the filings were Paul Singer, the New York hedge-fund manager, who gave $1 million; and William Oberndorf, a San Francisco investor, who gave $500,000.

    While Trump parlayed his exploits as a New York developer into international fame and a reality TV career, Stephens has cultivated a lower profile. But his family’s name has been a powerful one in Arkansas for decades.

    According to a 2012 profile in Barron’s that calls Stephens “The King of Little Rock,” his uncle, Witt, a cigar-chomping former Bible salesman, founded the investment bank in 1933. The firm passed to Witt’s brother Jackson Sr., then to Warren Stephens. Forbes estimates Stephens’ personal fortune at $2.4 billion.

    In 2004, Stephens opened an exclusive, world-class golf club overlooking Lake Maumelle outside Little Rock. “I don’t really know how much money I’ve spent on it,” he told Barron’s.

    Stephens is a longtime Republican donor, although he supported former Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton in his first presidential run in 1992. The financier and his wife were later rewarded with an overnight stay in the Lincoln Bedroom, a White House perk the president handed out to hundreds of supporters. (Stephens backed Republican Bob Dole during Clinton’s re-election campaign.)

    During the current race, Stephens has handed out a total of $300,000 to super PACs supporting Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker and Chris Christie, all of whom have since dropped out of the effort to become the Republican nominee.

    Most of the Stephenses’ giving in recent years has been to a super PAC run by Club for Growth, a powerful conservative group that pushes for limited government and lower taxes, and which has been one of the biggest spenders against Trump.

    Steve Stephens, who runs Exoxemis, a biomedical company in Little Rock, is chairman of the Club for Growth. Reached by phone, he said he didn’t want to comment on his donations or on the subject of Donald Trump.

    He did mention, however, that he’s a songwriter and keyboardist in a progressive-rock band called Rayburn. He pointed to a 2012 number that he said “kind of expressed what I may feel about certain political types.”

    It’s on YouTube, and it’s called “Keep the Change.” The lyrics include:

    You call your own shots

    Breakin’ every law

    Burning down what our fathers built. http://www.arkansasonline.com/news/2016/mar/22/lr-s-stephens-spends-millions-against-t/
