TRUMP: I WILL BRING CHARGES AGAINST TED CRUZ If He Does Not Apologize Before Saturday’s Election (Updated)

Jim Hoft

February 15, 2016

 

 

"“He’s a liar… Now, he’ll apologize. But I don’t want the apology after the election. I want it before. And if he doesn’t I am going to bring a lawsuit because in my opinion based on what I’ve learned over the last few days from very top lawyers. He doesn’t even have the right to serve as president or even run as president. He was born in Canada."

 
Ted Cruz was born in Canada.
 
The South Carolina election is Saturday. Trump wants an apology before then.

@kandescent.....yes, I think Scalia's death is very suspect.  I had a link to a story in which it was stated that CNN was told not to investigate.  Scalia stood in the way of someone's gun grab here in the USA also.
 
The question I have regarding Cruz is this.  I read that IF a child is born of an American mother, even IF she is not on American soil when she gives birth, that the child is still considered an American citizen.  His mother was American, his father was Cuban is what I read.  I don't know if she gave up her American citizenship.  Anyone have a clue how this works???  He is currently a Senator, so it seems this would have already been settled.

The Race to Lose the White House

February 15, 2016

Michael Brenner

 

"The Clinton juggernaut is losing traction. Powered by the full weight of the Democratic Establishment, it was designed to smoothly carry its idol across America and into the White House. It still may get there. But now it must traverse a far more treacherous and uncertain route than Hillary and her entourage ever imagined. The course is lined with the pundits, operatives and analysts who will cover the spectacle with their usual attention to trivia and a faith in their own perspicacity matching that of the heroine herself.

 

This was all predictable. For it conforms to the parochialism and inbreeding that for so long has infirmed the Democratic Party's leadership as well as the punditocracy. Fortunes could be made betting against the "Washington consensus" whose singular talent for getting it wrong extends from the country's endless skein of foreign misadventures to electoral politics. They give the impression of all sipping out of each other's double-lattes at Starbucks in Dupont Circle. The resulting damage done to the party's traditional constituents, to the integrity of national discourse and to America's interests in the world is incalculable -- and may well be irreparable.


 


Still, it is worth recording the pathologies that this latest bruising encounter with reality reveal. Most obvious is the disconnect between political elites and the country they presume to know or aspire to govern. The success of Bernie Sanders makes that transparently clear. His greatest asset is simply that he ran as a "Democrat" -- that is, as representative of the party as forged in the mid-20th century and whose precepts conform to the socio-economic interests and philosophical truths typically held by most Americans today. He is the first Presidential candidate to do so since Walter Mondale in 1984. Mondale's defeat convinced many pols that the future lay with the Reagan smorgasbord of discredited nostrums and myths repackaged by skillful political craftsmen as the new Revelation. Market fundamentalist economic models, a cartoonish version of American individualism a la Ayn Rand, financial libertinism, muscle-flexing abroad in the mantle of democratic proselytizing, and anti-government demagoguery were fashioned into an intoxicating cocktail. It worked to the extent that the cheap high thereby produced tapped latent racism, jingoism, evangelical Christian passions, and a new-found greedy selfishness which was the mutant offspring of 1960s liberation."

Trump wins S.C. GOP primary

February 20, 2016

Tim Dominick

 

 

"Republican Donald Trump’s boisterous throngs of S.C. supporters sent a resounding message Saturday to South Carolina’s political elite – we don’t want your establishment candidates.

 

The one-time reality TV star with populist appeal handily beat U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio in the state’s Republican presidential primary.

Rubio and Cruz nearly tied for second place. With 99 percent of the vote reported, Rubio led Cruz by roughly 1,000 votes. Both declared victory, saying the GOP race was down to three candidates.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson trailed in the race’s bottom tier."

Hillary Clinton wins Nevada caucus

February 20, 2016

Ben Botkin

 

 

"Hillary Clinton won Nevada's Democratic presidential caucus Saturday.

 
"Some may have doubted us but we never doubted each other," Clinton said to supporters gathered at Caesars Palace.
 
Earlier she reached out to her supporters in a Tweet: "To everyone who turned out in every corner of Nevada with determination and heart: This is your win. Thank you. -H"
 
Competitor Bernie Sanders conceded the Nevada race and congratulated Clinton on the win in a statement.
 
"I am very proud of the campaign we ran," Sanders said. "Five weeks ago we were 25 points behind and we ended up in a very close election. And we probably will leave Nevada with a solid share of the delegates.
 
"I am also proud of the fact that we have brought many working people and young people into the political process and believe that we have the wind at our back as we head toward Super Tuesday. I want to thank the people of Nevada for their support that they have given us and the boost that their support will give us as we go forward," Sanders added."

Jeb Bush Bows Out of Campaign, Humbled and Outgunned

February 20, 2016

Ashley Parker  Michael Barbaro

 

 

"COLUMBIA, S.C. — Jeb Bush dropped out of the presidential race on Saturday, ending a quest for the White House that started with a war chest of $100 million, a famous name and a promise of political civility but concluded with a humbling recognition: In 2016, none of it mattered.

 

No single candidacy this year fell so short of its original expectations. It began with an aura of inevitability that masked deep problems, from Mr. Bush himself, a clunky candidate in a field of gifted performers, to the rightward drift of the Republican Party since Mr. Bush’s time as a consensus conservative in Florida.

 

“I’m proud of the campaign that we’ve run to unify our country,” Mr. Bush said, his eyes moist, in an emotional speech here Saturday night after his third straight disappointing finish in the early voting states. “The people of Iowa and New Hampshire and South Carolina have spoken, and I really respect their decision.”

Exclusive: On Eve of South Carolina Vote, Nation’s ICE Officers Detail How Marco Rubio Betrayed Them

February 20, 2016

Julia Hahn

 

 

"In an exclusive Q&A with Breitbart News, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Council President Chris Crane provides never-before-heard details about the 2013 Gang of Eight immigration fight that are likely to shake up an already tumultuous presidential race.

 
ICE Council President, Crane represents the nation’s approximately 5,800 frontline ICE officers, agents and personnel who are responsible for enforcing America’s immigration laws in all 50 states and U.S. territories. For the first time ever, Crane details his behind-the-scenes interactions with Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)79%
 as Crane sought to protect the nation’s ICE officers and national security.
 
Crane was integral to stopping Sen. Rubio’s amnesty plan from passing the House—which, as Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)80%
 recently explained, “was a near-run thing.”
 
In his responses, Crane addresses an incident—first detailed by Breitbart News— in which Marco Rubio stood idly by as Crane was ejected from a Gang of Eight press conference for trying to ask a question on behalf of law enforcement.
 
Crane, an active duty ICE officer, has served as an officer for approximately 13 years and has been elected by his peers as the president of their union, as thus their voice on the national stage. Prior to joining ICE, Crane was a United States Marine.
 
What follows below are the complete, unedited responses of National ICE Council President Chris Crane.  "

Is There Any Stopping Donald Trump?

Frank Bruni

February 21, 2016

 

 

21bruni4web-master675.jpg

 

"Over the last few months and even weeks, the question among many flabbergasted Republican traditionalists and incredulous political analysts was when the forces of gravity would catch up with Donald Trump and send him tumbling to earth.

 

It was going to happen. Of course it was going to happen. You just had to be patient. You just had to be strong.

 

But in the wake of his victories in New Hampshire and now South Carolina, the question is no longer “when.” It’s “if.” And the answer isn’t clear at all.

 

Consider this: From 1980 forward, no Republican presidential candidate has won both the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries and gone on to lose the party’s nomination.

 

And this: Over that same time period, only one Republican victor in South Carolina failed to become the nominee, and that was Newt Gingrich, in 2012. But Gingrich didn’t have Trump’s durable (and sizeable) lead in national polls. He didn’t dominate the race’s narrative and capture an exasperated electorate’s mood the way Trump has.

 

As it happens, Gingrich was on Fox News on Saturday night to discuss Trump’s latest triumph, and he didn’t say: “South Carolina? It’s a muggy, marshy, inconsequential tease. I bagged it four years ago and all it got me was this gig babbling in the wee hours about election returns.”

 

No, Gingrich marveled at what he made clear was “a huge night for Donald Trump.”

 

“Nobody should kid themselves,” he added.

 

Trump didn’t just win South Carolina, and he didn’t just win it by a margin of 10 points. He won it despite what looked, over recent days, like a concerted effort to lose it. He won it after what appeared to be one of the worst weeks that a candidate could have."

Cruz Now Faces Birther Lawsuits in 6 States

 

ABC News is now reporting that Ted Cruz is facing an ever-growing list of challenges to his qualifications to run for the presidency. Lawsuits are now pending in at least 6 states.

 

Federal lawsuits have now been filed in Alabama, Utah and Texas. State lawsuits have been filed in New York, Vermont and Illinois.

 

Cruz, who has admitted being born in Canada to an American citizen mother and a Cuban citizen father, is considered to be unqualified to serve as President according to a very specific requirement placed into the U.S. Constitution that demands that the President must be a “natural-born citizen.”

Cruz stumbles with evangelical voters

February 20, 2016

By KATIE GLUECK and SHANE GOLDMACHER

 

 

The Texan banked his whole campaign on the South. Now he’s lost Round 1.

"COLUMBIA, S.C. --South Carolina was supposed to be Ted Cruz’s slingshot, catapulting him through the gauntlet of southern states that vote on Super Tuesday.

Instead, he got skunked.

 

A disappointing showing in Saturday's primary complicates Cruz’s gameplan for March 1, a day that he has built up as the cornerstone of his primary strategy. It also calls into question his long-held claim that he is the evangelical standard-bearer: Exit polls showed Trump beating him out for evangelical support.
 
“I don’t think it will end his campaign but it will definitely hurt him,” said Hogan Gidley, a former executive director of the South Carolina Republican Party and past senior adviser to Mike Huckabee. “He’s got money and he’s got a message to go to the South. The problem is he won’t have any momentum. And you can’t underestimate the importance of having momentum because people want to be with a winner.”

Cruz asks spokesman to resign over 'inaccurate' Rubio video

February 22, 2016

By David Wright, Tal Kopan and Theodore Schleifer, CNN

 

 

"(CNN)Ted Cruz asked his communications director Rick Tyler to resign Monday after Tyler distributed a video that falsely depicted Marco Rubio dismissing the Bible.

 
The incident comes a day before the Nevada Republican caucuses and in the wake of accusations from rival campaigns in recent weeks about Cruz's campaign tactics. Donald Trump has called Cruz a "liar" and Rubio and Ben Carson have also blasted the Texas senator.
 
Trump, Rubio and Carson have all attacked Cruz for his ethics ever since Cruz's victory in Iowa. Cruz later underperformed in South Carolina two contests later.
 
Cruz says he spent the morning investigating what happened before making his decision. Campaign manager Jeff Roe confirmed that Tyler had formally resigned."

Marco Rubio Bets on Nevada, a State That Shaped His Childhood

February 22, 2016

Jeremy W. Peters

 

"LAS VEGAS — The neighborhoods of squat cinder-block bungalows on this city’s north end do not usually produce a lot of Republicans.

 

“This was always a Democratic area,” said Mo Denis, the state senator who represents its mostly working-class residents and is, unsurprisingly, a lifelong Democrat. “People got their start here.”

 

One of the families that moved here looking to get its start was Marco Rubio’s. And as Mr. Rubio’s first cousin, Mr. Denis knows the family’s story well.

 

The detour the Rubios took here for six years in the late 1970s and early ’80s is not one of the better-known chapters in Mr. Rubio’s life. Yet as he and his relatives recalled in interviews, it was a formative one.

Isaac Brekken for The New York Times

 

 More than 30 years after he and his family left, homesick for Miami and still looking for the better opportunities they could not find here, Mr. Rubio is returning to ask Nevada to help elect him president. With the state’s Republican caucuses on Tuesday — a contest that Mr. Rubio’s campaign has poured considerable resources into, betting that a strong finish will bolster his status as the best candidate to unite his fractured party — his experience here as an adolescent goes a long way in explaining how his conservative outlook took shape. It also leaves an intriguing question about what political identity he might have developed had he remained."

Trump Calls For Auditing the Fed (Keep your bulletproof vest on Donald!)

Posted By: Watchman

Date: Monday, 22-Feb-2016 20:16:26

GOP frontrunner makes good on promise to call for audit of Fed

Donald Trump is calling for an audit of the Federal Reserve.

The GOP frontrunner said it was important to audit the Fed and even called out his rival, Sen. Ted Cruz, for skipping a vote on Sen. Rand Paul’s “Audit the Fed” proposal back in Jan.

It is so important to audit The Federal Reserve, and yet Ted Cruz missed the vote on the bill that would allow this to be done.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 22, 2016

“It is so important to audit The Federal Reserve, and yet Ted Cruz missed the vote on the bill that would allow this to be done,” Trump tweeted out.

During Friday’s appearance on the Alex Jones Show, Trump insider Roger Stone was asked if Trump would call for an audit, and he said that he thought so but would pass the message along to the Trump campaign.

“He’s not a big fan of the Fed,” Stone pointed out. “He is scaring the central bankers; he is scaring the Washington/Wall Street/D.C. consultant/lobbyist class.”

President John F.Kennedy,

The Federal Reserve

And Executive Order 11110

by Cedric X

From The Final Call, Vol. 15, No.6, On January 17, 1996

On June 4, 1963, a little known attempt was made to strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the government at interest. On that day President John F. Kennedy signed Executive Order No. 11110 that returned to the U.S. government the power to issue currency, without going through the Federal Reserve. Mr. Kennedy's order gave the Treasury the power "to issue silver certificates against any silver bullion, silver, or standard silver dollars in the Treasury." This meant that for every ounce of silver in the U.S. Treasury's vault, the government could introduce new money into circulation. In all, Kennedy brought nearly $4.3 billion in U.S. notes into circulation. The ramifications of this bill are enormous.

With the stroke of a pen, Mr. Kennedy was on his way to putting the Federal Reserve Bank of New York out of business.

Source http://www.john-f-kennedy.net/executiveorder11110.htm

And we all know what the punishment for that was ..... but yes T someone should enact Executive Order 11110 out of the blue with no advance warning as that would definitely be worth the cost of the ticket and popcorn to watch.

GOP wakes up to Trump nightmare

February 23, 2016

By ALEX ISENSTADT 

 

 

Top party leaders fear it may be too late to stop him.

 

"Establishment Republicans are reckoning with something they thought would never happen: That it might soon be too late to stop Donald Trump.

With the controversial businessman the clear front-runner heading into Nevada and next week’s Super Tuesday contests, there’s an emerging consensus that the odds of dislodging him are growing longer by the day. Whispered fears that Trump could become the Republican nominee have given way to a din of resigned conventional wisdom – with top party officials and strategists openly wondering what the path to defeating him will be.
 
“If anyone else in this field had gone second-first-first in the first three contests, we would all be saying that it’s over,” said Mike DuHaime, a former Republican National Committee political director who guided Chris Christie’s presidential bid.
“I think it’s uphill, and Washington underestimates how uphill it is – and that’s because they’ve persistently underestimated Trump,” said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who sought the Republican nomination in 2012. If he wins Nevada, Gingrich added, “What is it that’s supposed to stop him?”
snip
One senior party operative on Monday evening described “building irritation” with Kasich among GOP elders for staying in the race when has such a narrow path to the nomination – but said there was no consensus on the best way to force him out."
snip
 
 
Ok, so they force Kasich out, say.  Then they have Cruz/Rubio/Trump left.  So then Trump/Rubio go after Cruz, and he gives up.  Down to Trump/Rubio, LOL their worst nightmare as I'm not exactly sure Rubio is really eligible, having been born of foreign parents, but on American soil. You can believe it will be challenged by Trump, if it's possible. imo. Can't let O stack the SC. They could get stuck with Trump any way they turn.  LOL  There is one thing. Turkey/Saudi/Syria   A known, unknown, and volatile factor. IF we end up in a war, before election time, it WILL NOT be by accident! just my random thoughts, and I could be wrong, of course.

Trump scores big win in Nevada

Feb. 23, 2016

Maeve Reston

 

"Las Vegas (CNN)Donald Trump has won the Nevada Republican caucuses, expanding his dominance in the early GOP contests despite the well-organized campaigns of his two chief rivals: Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.

 

The results in Nevada, a state with complex caucus rules and unreliable voter data, were yet another sign of how Trump's momentum is sweeping the country. He heads into the Super Tuesday contests riding high in the polls and maintaining a wide lead over the other GOP contenders in the delegate count.

 

"This is an amazing night," Trump said in his victory speech.

 

He ticked down the list of all the groups he won.

 

"We won the evangelicals," he said. "We won with young. With won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated."

 

Trump, who has campaigned on a hard-line immigration platform including a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, is winning Latino caucusgoers in Nevada. Entrance polls indicated Latinos made up 9% of the electorate and 44% of them planned to back Trump."

I found a transcript of a recent hearing from Judicial Watch v. United States regarding FOIA requests for Clinton emails.  Here's an excerpt from the Judge.

 

 

MR. BEKESHA: Thank you, Your Honor. Just one quick

point. I wanted to just come up and officially formally ask the

Court so that it's before you, move that in -- based on the

entire record, that orders be entered to the State Department to

subpoena the PST files of Mrs. Clinton and Mrs. Abedin from the

Clintonemail.com system.

THE COURT: All right. All right. Anything else?

MR. BEKESHA: That's it, Your Honor.

THE COURT: All right.

MR. BEKESHA: Thank you.

THE COURT: All right. I'm going to hear from the

government in a few minutes. Let me just put a few things on the

record first before I invite government counsel up.

The understanding I have is that there are sufficient

facts to show that senior State Department staff knew of

Clintonemail.com from the beginning of the former secretary's

tenure as Secretary of State. For example, in the record there's

a January 24, 2009, e-mail chain between Patrick Kennedy,

Lewis Lukens, David Smith, Cheryl Mills, and some others

regarding setting up a computer at State for Mrs. Clinton to

check her e-mail off network.

The inference arises that this is knowledge of

Clintonemail.com among State senior -- among senior State

Department staff. There's a January 2016 OIG report that

concludes there is evidence that dozens of staff communicated

with the secretary through personal accounts, yet have the OIG

found no evidence that staff involved in responding to FOIA had

knowledge of the secretary's personal e-mail server, and that's

set forth at pages 14 and 15 of that report.

The e-mail communication between Abedin; Stephen Mull,

who's a technology employee; Mills; Kennedy; and others

discussing communication problems. At one point it's suggested

by Mull that a State BlackBerry should be issued to Clinton. He

notes that her identity would be protected with the State e-mail

account, quote, would also be subject to FOIA requests, end

quote. Abedin's response is, "Let's discuss the State

Blackberry, doesn't make a whole lot of sense." And that's

Docket Number 51-3. The interpretation that Judicial Watch

assigns to this is somewhat generous and reflects Mull expressing

concern that Clintonemail.com may not be managed in such a way to

allow for appropriate responses to FOIA requests. It can also be

read as the tech guy -- technology person flagging for the staff

that would be subject to FOIA, so it could be interpreted either

way. It's somewhat ambiguous.

How on earth can the Court conclude that there's not, at a

minimum, a reasonable suspicion of bad faith regarding the State

Department's response to this FOIA request? It appears that no

one took any steps to ensure that agency records on

Clintonemail.com were secured within the State Department's

record systems so that FOIA requests received during the former

secretary's tenure would be responded to appropriately.

And am I missing something? Government counsel needs to

tell me what I'm missing. How in the world could this happen?

Which leads to the first question: Does the government -- does

the State Department concede that senior staff knew about and

condoned the use of Clintonemail.com?

And I'll invite counsel to the podium. Good morning,

Counsel.

THE COURT: This practice has been curtailed at the

Department of State?

MR. MYERS: Forgive me, Your Honor?

THE COURT: This practice of allowing private e-mail

service has been curtailed, has it?

MR. MYERS: Your Honor, my understanding is that, you

know -- I'm trying to think of how to answer your question most

accurately.

THE COURT: Well, is the --

MR. MYERS: I'm not certainly not aware. I have no reason

to think that this, you know -- this is continuing. I don't want

to make representations generally, but I have no reason to think

that this is still going on.

THE COURT: I mean, that's a question that the government

should be able to answer, whether or not -- yes, go ahead. Do

you have the answer?

MR. MYERS: Yes, and as my co-counsel's pointing out, the

FRA has been amended on this point, you know, to provide further

clarity, and it's certainly our understanding that State is

complying with the FRA.

THE COURT: All right. So this practice is no longer

condoned, then, as far --

MR. MYERS: This practice is not condoned consistent with

the FRA.

THE COURT: -- as your colleague knows?

MR. MYERS: Yes, Your Honor.

THE COURT: All right. Thank you, Counsel.

You know, it's just troubling, though, when you focus on

the request in this case pertaining to the -- let's just focus on

Ms. Abedin. Here you have Mrs. Clinton and Abedin and their

private counsel deciding, after neither Ms. Clinton or Ms. Abedin

were government employees, what e-mails are federal records and

what e-mails are not. It just boggles the mind that the State

Department allowed this circumstance to arise in the first place.

It's just very, very, very troubling. And I think that whatever

opinion the Court writes, the first sentence will be: This is a

very troubling case, for a host of reasons.

GOP establishment trashes Christie for endorsing Trump

February 26, 2016

Daniel Lippman

 

"Establishment Republicans reacted with a mix of shock, anger and sadness at Chris Christie’s endorsement of Donald Trump on Friday, a stunning move that undermines the GOP mainstream's efforts to prop up Marco Rubio’s campaign against Trump.

 

“It’s pretty disgusting why he did it because he’s opportunistic,” said Tony Fratto of Hamilton Place Strategies, who worked in the George W. Bush White House. “His days of leadership in the Republican Party are done.”
 
Fratto also brought up how Christie had previously criticized Trump for his anti-Muslim and immigrant comments. “Did he mean those things or is he a liar?”
 
Endorsing Trump was “probably not his brightest political move. It’s right up there with the bridge,” said Stuart Roy, a Tom Delay alum now with Strategic Action Public Affairs.
 
“It will definitely be a dark cloud over his seriousness as an elected leader," added Roy, one of whose clients is American Future Fund, which just launched a multimillion-dollar ad campaign attacking Trump for allegedly ripping off students who attended Trump University. "He was a serious federal prosecutor, he was a serious governor, he was a serious presidential candidate and now this is an unserious endorsement."

This is a pretty funny statement to make about a politician: “It’s pretty disgusting why he did it because he’s opportunistic,”

Lol. Aren't they all?

@ kandescent    No longer a government of, by, and FOR the people, instead, it's of, by, and FOR money. Money while in office, AND after they leave office. That is exactly why we are in the condition we're in.

 

Super Tuesday turnout set to smash records

Daniel Strauss

February 26, 2016

 

Several states report big surges in early voting

 

"If the early voting numbers are any indicator, get ready for a huge turnout on Super Tuesday.

 

In state after March 1 state, election officials are reporting increases in the number of voters who cast their ballot before election day. Alabama, Arkansas, Massachusetts -- to name just a few -- report upticks in absentee ballots and voter registration. In at least two of the 12 states voting Tuesday, Georgia and Tennessee, election officials report dramatic surges that have blown past previous records.
 
"We are seeing an upsurge. In the last couple of election cycles we've seen about 100,000 people early vote. Through yesterday, we've had about 120,000 already. And we've got today, tomorrow and Monday still," Chris Powell, a spokesman in the Arkansas secretary of state's office, said Friday.
 
The numbers vary but the story is similar in many of the Super Tuesday states -- voters seem primed to come out in large numbers and are eager to vote earlier in 2016.
