You guys. You’re doing it again. Hey, I’m talking to commenters here….
“The revelation is only one that is documented in “The Wilderness.” The book, which hits stores Tuesday, provides an inside-look into the Republican Party’s rising stars.”"
This is the last line in the piece… Sounds like a phoney baloney propaganda advertisement from TB to me. You’re all ready and willing to jump on this and hold it ALL up for true. Do you know a thing about the writer of the book, Political reporter McKay Coppins????
Think people. Don’t get played like democrat stooges….even though you WANT TO BELIEVE the story. Do your homework on the writer before you start running up to the front with the rope. Uh uh….Tsk tsk.
If you listen closely, Rubio is still for amnesty. screw all rinos

“Sidney Blumenthal referred to Republicans as “cretins and reptiles”
That is pretty funny. Cretins and reptiles. Ha.

Aye.We’re spending a lot more time on Netflix. I record from one to three shows on Fox depending on what’s going on and like a good little baleen whale sift out that which is useful and discard the rest which is most. Honors to the man who invented the FF button.

Blunt Conversation With Donald Trump During Megyn Kelly… Mx Kelly’s Trump screech.
She’s still doing it. Has Roger had further conversations (and made significant corporate apologies) with Trump about his misbehaving short haired ankle biting attack dachshund? Yes, that’s what I called her. She did it again tonight. She drops the name Trump and gets screechy, then more screechy, and then more and more screechy until she’s screeching at near the speed of sound. Yippity yappity yip yip yip.
The woman hates Trump and never misses a chance to let us know….in media ditz language, of course (yip yip yip). But the screech…. Oh my. That translates across the nations. Mx Kelly’s Trump screech.
I can't watch the self important ladder Climber. Actually, stopped before first debate. Not missing a thing. Fox is all OPINION. Same talking pontifs who are never correct. 5-6 stories per night repeated in every show. Boring. YouTube channels are far more informative.

You will notice that the bar is high this time around for our guys and they are the ones who set it that way in the first place.
For the first time ever in my experience there are candidates who don’t play the media games. If you’ll watch carefully you’ll find that the ones who do the best job of not letting the media trap them in their wacko commie left wing baby school scenarios are the ones we like best.
The candidate who early practices offense instead of defense with the progressive enemy bodes well for later on should he ascend beginning in February.

“That first FOX debate was a disaster…..”
Only Fox and in particular me me me Megs doesn’t think it was a disaster. When they hold their debate up as an example of right and gooness it really makes them look all the more silly and vindictive. Megs was teasing her treachery days before the debate.

We’re onto you Roger darling just like we’re onto to the rest of the phoney baloney media. Oh my goodness. I want to indulge so badly and say naughty things about you….but I shan’t. Grr! It’s too easy.

Historic words from the “I Have A Climate speech” by America’s first non-Saltine American climatologist:
“I believe, in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., that there is no thing as being too late and when it comes to climate change,”
Some days. Ah well. Hey, you know, Rush is on vacation today or mebbe for the whole week. He didn’t say.. I suppose to fly around in his jet, smoke cheroots, and have some fun. Hob nob with the rich folks. Stuff he likes to do.
Mark my words, whenever he returns one of the first things he’ll say boldly and proudly is that he never turned on his radio or read any political stuff the whole time he was away. That’s his way.
So I ax you as I have axed myself about 5000 times. Why do we do this to ourselves? Even the paid talk yakkers don’t care about this stuff unless they are being paid. We do it for what? Fun? Definitely for free.
We should take demonstrated (but unspoken) guidance from our favorite yakkers and just go do something else. Something fun. Something for profit. We spend waaay too much time here. We really do.

If you like/don’t like a candidate then stand and deliver the reasons with facts. When you see these one line snarks on here from to time these folks are just feeding Grandmother Rodham. The word “because” was invented with good reason. Use it or be seen as a dust mote.
Don’t snark us out of a good candidate to deliver the Beast Of Washington into our midst.

Assuming you believe in this climate malarkey, how do you answer the problem and reality of communist Chiner?
China took away (was gladly given) our industry so as to allow us (USA) to become preeminent in data.
They have our industry alrighty, but with it went the pollution problems. And whereas we here in the good old USA type America did a pretty good job of handling waste byproducts toward the end of our manufacturing phase, China just ignores it. So, when you see China these days you can’t see but about 15 feet and everyone is wearing dust masks.
The same thing happened in communist Russia. They too made messes and didn’t clean them up. Seems to go with the political model,which Obama adores, btw.
The U.S. can have all the success at cutting back on waste products bekez we don’t make anything any more. Communist Chiner makes messes right and left…and yet who always get the climate shaft? Well, us, naturally. Dirty rotten dangerous Chiner gets a pass.
Climate Change congresses are called primarily for one reason…To allow special people to fly in jets and eat really good food.

From near zero substance to go with this TB article it would be easy to infer that it was nothing other than the old bait and switch.
For two days I have been seeing hordes of stories on Google News where the ministers would NOT be giving him the nod. I’m guessing he was assured otherwise when he accepted.
If this is true then Trump would be the first candidate ever with enough guts to opt out of a trap and meat grinder. Makes me love him all the more.
November 30, 2015 at 8:18am
Great comment Thainn. You are right on the money.
As we all ought to remember McCain was the darling of the media until he wasn’t when he won the nomination. He was shocked when CBS and NBC stopped calling. We know the playbook. It’s just that we can be fooled only so many times.
What concerns me is that if and when Trump becomes inevitable a lot of folks (some of them important) have a lot of Trump dog cussing to call back or risk aiding Grandmother Rodham whose candidacy is about as substantial as a 747 made out of crispy bacon.

Funny thing. As ham handed and amateurish as Trump’s campaign is most days, he’s STILL WINNING.
Now what would be the reasoning behind that? Trump trumpeters are as avid about supporting Trump as not supporting Bush…or Rubio. They spit in the media’s eye daily.
Why does no one in the media state the obvious….That if Bush is handed the nomination enough of us would stay home to throw the election to the democrat, even if it is a crumpled candy wrapper? Why do they not state that this would also possibly be the outcome if Rubio were handed the nomination?
The man thing for Bush and Kay-sich to do today is to GET OUT. But they won’t. And it’s less to do with strategery than money.
The only reason that I know of that someone would stay home if any of the other candidates WIN the nod, and that doubly includes Trump, then they weren’t ever going to vote for a republican anyway and aren’t worth the spit flying from our lips to cuss them.
It’s good to have the team spirit. But there comes a point when it becomes obvious, should Trump start winning states, folks need to get on his team. Either that or declare that they are commie rodham lovers and just get on with it.
The reason the media won't admit that Bush wouldn't win is the same reason they try to claim that Rubio is the one they most fear. Everyone knows that Rubio would have a lack of voters because of his stances, this is what makes him the weakest of the top 4 against Hillary. But the left is never going to admit that, they will always run out and claim that the person they know is the weakest is actually the strongest.
They've done it before, Romney was weak and because of his weakness millions of conservatives didn't vote. Same with McCain. The left knows that Hillary is pretty much a walking joke in the nation and that their voting blocs are collapsing as people flee the democrat party. Because of this they are trying to influence who the right picks.
The problem is that the GOP establishment is actually stupid enough to believe what the left says, and thus they are now clambering for Rubio, not even seeming to realize that he is the weakest of the top 4.
A vote for anyone but TRUMP and you get KILLARY. And the END of AMERICA.

At this point in comments it is 32 against and zero for taking away guns and most anything else Obama including choice of ice cream toppings. Of course this is only anecdotal and the news media would characterize it as “concerning” if they would mention it at all which is doubtful.
I’d say the trend in comments here makes a fair good case for considering putting a pro police pro military pro American card carrying conservative truth teller into the whitehouse next time around.
 November 28, 2015 at 8:22am
I get the meaning. While I don’t think much of him as a candidate I do tend to flow with those who see him as a good and exceptional man. I upvoted you.

Can Donald Trump’s Mockery of a Disabled Reporter be Defended?
By: Leon H. Wolf (Diary) | November 27th, 2015 at 11:20 AM
The imperious web rag Red State is supposed to be the herald of the right. However, especially lately it has become nothing so much as the mouthpiece of the establishment. Wolf is the leader of the pack there.
Red State is continuously in a red state over Trump. Some folks here are also afflicted. The question I have and I would ask you to consider each time someone is outraged at Trump is this:
1. Is it genuine reasoned outrage by honest people?
2. Is it outrage by dim minds easily influenced?
3. Is it outrage from paid people hired to drive opinion?
This pretty much goes for any over the top emoting on our candidates (We don’t even have to rage over Bush. He has been simply and rightly dismissed. No mad. Just glad.)
The fact is no legit conservative cares two spits for anything to do with the Times of New York. They are NOT our friend and to defend them for any cause is suspect. They eat any conservative for breakfast. So why the outrage? Why the mad? This issue is so beside the point.
So much of what I see from folks who are supposed to be us smells of rank commie lib propaganda at best and petulant discomboobery on the other.

This is too bizarre. A real turkey of a story. “Donald Trump Denies Mocking NYT Reporter”
Why would Donald Trump deny mocking a NYT Reporter? No one here would deny mocking a NYT Reporter or any other kind of media Reporter for that matter. TB fans regularly mock reporters. It’s what we do.
Reporters should be mocked and often. Of all the Reporters there are none that I can think of that should be mocked more than NYT Reporters.
Therefore it makes no sense to me that Trump would deny mocking a NYT Reporter. What does he think he has to gain? Who is he trying to impress by not mocking NYT Reporters? Too strange. Pass the cranberry sauce.
