Over the next two weeks the candidate of choice of the WP liberals here will be eliminated.

Obama, The DNC, Wall Street and the democrat party elite long ago decided that the corrupt and liar Hillary Clinton will be the democratic party nominee for president. Your primary vote does not matter; they don’t care what you think.

The only question that remains are how many of the WP liberals will be outside of the courthouse during Hillary Clinton’s trial holding signs and hollering “Free Hillary, Free Hillary!”

Will y’all switch form Bernie Sanders to the Hooker of Wall Street?



Republicans are saying the end of their party is near. I take it that you were not important enough to inform.

I'll admit that after hearing Hillary debate, she is incredibly disappointing. Not a sincere word yet if you ask me. Just sounds phony 100% of the time, which only makes her sound like she is hiding something. I want Bernie, but I don't see how he has any chance at all, so I'm hoping Rubio gets it.

Right. America wins when the White Supremacist becomes President and his real world hooker becomes First Lady.

My vote counts just as much as yours Dumb Ass. In fact, Hillary has had to tack left due to Bernie. I'll never see all the change I want to see in America but the country is certainly more liberal than when I was a child. It takes time but I believe this country is on the right path. Eventually our lust for Empire will be replaced by a new age of enlightenment where voices like yours will not be tolerated.

Go yell fire in someone else's theatre Son.

The New York Times is sitting on information from January that will reveal Donald is lying about his stance on immigration. Of course hard blighted right wingers won't believe the source. Donald lies more than anyone else to ever run for President yet some blighted right wingers want to make honesty a central issue of this campaign.

Man it would be funny if it wasn't so pathetic.

quote:
The New York Times is sitting on an audio recording that some of its staff believes could deal a serious blow to Donald Trump, who, in an off-the-record meeting with the newspaper, called into question whether he would stand by his own immigration views.

Trump visited the paper’s Manhattan headquarters on Tuesday, Jan. 5, as part of a round of editorial board meetings that — as is traditional — the Democratic candidates for president and some of the Republicans attended. The meetings, conducted partly on the record and partly off the record in a 13th-floor conference room, give candidates a chance to make their pitch for the paper’s endorsement.

After a dispute over Trump’s suggestion of tariffs on Chinese goods, the Times released a portion of the recording. But that was from the on-the-record part of the session.

On Saturday, columnist Gail Collins, one of the attendees at the meeting (which also included editor-in-chief Dean Baquet), floated a bit of speculation in her column: The most optimistic analysis of Trump as a presidential candidate is that he just doesn’t believe in positions, except the ones you adopt for strategic purposes when you’re making a deal. So you obviously can’t explain how you’re going to deport 11 million undocumented immigrants, because it’s going to be the first bid in some future monster negotiation session.

Sources familiar with the recording and transcript — which have reached near-mythical status at the Times — tell me that the second sentence is a bit more than speculation. It reflects, instead, something Trump said about the flexibility of his hardline anti-immigration stance.
So what exactly did Trump say about immigration, about deportations, about the wall? Did he abandon a core promise of his campaign in a private conversation with liberal power brokers in New York?

I wasn’t able to obtain the recording, or the transcript, and don’t know exactly what Trump said. Neither Baquet, Collins, nor various editorial board members I reached would comment on an off-the-record conversation, which the Times essentially said it cannot release without approval from Trump, given the nature of the off-the-record agreement.

Times editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal told me he would not comment “on what was off the record at our meeting with him.”

“If [Trump] wants to call up and ask us to release this transcript, he’s free to do that and then we can decide what we would do,” Rosenthal said.

Trump, whose spokeswoman didn’t respond immediately to an email, can resolve this mystery: He can ask the Times to release the tape. Will he?

There is a full court press to help push Rubio past Trump by the establishment with the complicit media. In 72 hours Trump has been labeled a racist, fascist, and a Nazi all in the mainstream press. Not to mention secret recordings and bombshell tax returns. Two torpedoes that sank Romney so its being tried again in this election cycle.


Inexperienced Rubio is the establishments last hope .

Trump has been labeled those things often over the last 72 weeks, not just hours. Although I'm sure the lies he's been telling this week about not knowing who David Duke is has ratcheted that up a bit...

Trump in 1991 (talking about Duke's failed gubanatorial bid and possible white house run):
Larry King: "If he runs and Pat Buchanan runs [for president in 1992], might you see a really divided vote?"

Trump: "Well, I think if they run, or even if David Duke — I mean, George Bush was very, very strong against David Duke. I think if he had it to do again, he might not have gotten involved in that campaign because I think David Duke now, if he runs, takes away almost exclusively Bush votes and then a guy like Cuomo runs — I think Cuomo can win the election."

King: "But Bush morally had to come out against him."

Trump: "I think Bush had to come out against him. I think Bush — if David Duke runs, David Duke is going to get a lot of votes. Whether that be good or bad, David Duke is going to get a lot of votes. Pat Buchanan — who really has many of the same theories, except it’s in a better package — Pat Buchanan is going to take a lot of votes away from George Bush. So if you have these two guys running, or even one of them running, I think George Bush could be in big trouble."

Trump in 2000:
"Well, you’ve got David Duke just joined — a bigot, a racist, a problem. I mean, this is not exactly the people you want in your party. Buchanan’s a disaster as we’ve, you know, covered. Jesse’s a terrific guy who just left the party. And he, you know, it’s unfortunate, but he just left the party. He’s going to be doing his Independence Party from Minnesota."

"The Reform Party now includes a Klansman, Mr. Duke, a neo-Nazi, Mr. Buchanan, and a communist, Ms. Fulani. This not company I wish to keep."

Trump 2 days ago:
"Well, just so you understand, I don’t know anything about David Duke. OK? I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists. So, I don’t know."

Whether you believe it or not, Trump stated he had a malfunctioning ear piece and had trouble hearing.

Trump has allowed access to himself by the media and if Nate Silver would do the statistics, I would not be surprised if Trump media coverage ( by his own choice, btw) is at a 100:1 ratio or words spoken to the press would be 10,000 :1 ratio as compared to Hillary or Bernie.

Now the focus is on a few sentences about a guy he denounced in 2000 and again denounced shortly after the interview.

Like I said , its a full court press to bring him down. I have never seen anything like this.

Do you believe it? I know I don't, and even if you do it certainly doesn't explain why he'd say "I don’t know anything about David Duke" when he clearly knows exactly who David Duke is and what he stands for. Trump has continuously lied throughout his campaign, it comes way too easy to him.

Have you seen the photo of Hillary kissing Robert Byrd. This is not in the news at all but wasn't he in the same category as Duke . The media is sure focusing on one and not the other.

You really can't figure out why they are focusing on one and not the other? Here's a hint: Byrd died years ago (and before that he endorsed Obama not Hillary in 2008) and Duke just endorsed Trump this week.

Of course it is silly to compare Byrd and Duke in the first place, but if you think they are "in the same category" then I don't really expect you to understand that.

You conveniently did not mention that Donald Trump clearly and succinctly disavowed David Duke in a televised press conference from Ft. Worth last Friday.

Not surprisingly we don’t hear from the left anyone calling for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders to publically reject Black Lives Matter, the militant organization openly calling for the killing of police officers.

Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have pandered to Black Lives Matter whereas Donald Trump openly rejects The Klan.

You seem all upset about "white supremacists", who Donald Trump has disavowed and "black militants", supported by Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, are fine with you.

It really is amazing how we all see things differently.

I see a media in the bag for Trump. Everyone everywhere the last 24 hours has been predicting a Trump blowout today.

One could make a case that reporting that message would influence on-the-fence-about-voting voters to just say "why bother?"

This year, 1,237 delegates are needed to win the GOP nomination. There are a total of 2,340 available.

Going into today, the delegate totals are:
Trump 82
Cruz 17
Rubio 16

595 delegates up for grabs today, but those are proportionally awarded. Winner-take-all doesn't apply until all the primaries that occur on or after March 15th.

Cruz and Rubio are very much in this whole thing, but, you wouldn't know it. As you have pointed out, Trump gets all this free press...odd for a media that seemingly wants to destroy him, no?

As to the accusations and such flying around, don't blame the media. They have entire staffs of people living every second to report absolutely anything that happens. Primary politics is as dirty as it gets and if you don't think this stuff comes from the campaigns and the PACs, look deeper.

From the all knowing Wikipedia:

In the early 1940s, Byrd recruited 150 of his friends and associates to create a new chapter of the Ku Klux Klan in Sophia, West Virginia.[12][13]

According to Byrd, a Klan official told him, "You have a talent for leadership, Bob ... The country needs young men like you in the leadership of the nation." Byrd later recalled, "Suddenly lights flashed in my mind! Someone important had recognized my abilities! I was only 23 or 24 years old, and the thought of a political career had never really hit me. But strike me that night, it did."[13] Byrd became a recruiter and leader of his chapter.[13] When it came time to elect the top officer (Exalted Cyclops) in the local Klan unit, Byrd won unanimously.[13]

In December 1944, Byrd wrote to segregationist Mississippi Senator Theodore G. Bilbo:

I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side ... Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.

—?Robert C. Byrd, in a letter to Sen. Theodore Bilbo (D-MS), 1944[13][20]
In 1946, Byrd wrote a letter to a Grand Wizard stating, "The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia and in every state in the nation."[21] However, when running for the United States House of Representatives in 1952, he announced "After about a year, I became disinterested, quit paying my dues, and dropped my membership in the organization. During the nine years that have followed, I have never been interested in the Klan." He said he had joined the Klan because he felt it offered excitement and was anti-communist.[13]

In 1997, Byrd told an interviewer he would encourage young people to become involved in politics but also warned, "Be sure you avoid the Ku Klux Klan. Don't get that albatross around your neck. Once you've made that mistake, you inhibit your operations in the political arena."[22] In his last autobiography, Byrd explained that he was a KKK member because he "was sorely afflicted with tunnel vision — a jejune and immature outlook — seeing only what I wanted to see because I thought the Klan could provide an outlet for my talents and ambitions."[23] Byrd also said, in 2005, "I know now I was wrong. Intolerance had no place in America. I apologized a thousand times ... and I don't mind apologizing over and over again. I can't erase what happened."[13]

Right, being the exhalted cyclops leader of a local unit back when they actually killed blacks vs being the leader of the dumb group today, where it is largely ignored is totally pointless and not in the same category.

On Tuesday morning, Trump tried to be slightly more forceful in his comments on Duke. In a phone interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” he was asked whether he categorically rejects the support of all white supremacists. “Of course I am,” he responded. “Of course I am.”

Thanks. Like I said, very silly to compare Byrd to Duke as being "in the same category."


Right, being the exhalted cyclops leader of a local unit back when they actually killed blacks vs being the leader of the dumb group today, where it is largely ignored is totally pointless and not in the same category.

You need to do some more reading. Byrd and Duke were/are not in the same category at all. It is a silly comparison.

On Tuesday morning, Trump tried to be slightly more forceful in his comments on Duke. In a phone interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” he was asked whether he categorically rejects the support of all white supremacists. “Of course I am,” he responded. “Of course I am.”

Just like the governor of Maine Paul LePage, Trump intentionally says outrageous things on the stump to appeal to his base, then tries to walk it back later blaming it all on "the media." I've seen it over and over again (and over and over and over...) from LePage for the last 6 years, and Trump follows the same playbook.

There is a full court press to help push Rubio past Trump by the establishment with the complicit media. In 72 hours Trump has been labeled a racist, fascist, and a Nazi all in the mainstream press.

Inexperienced Rubio is the establishments last hope .



Trump has been labeled those things often over the last 72 weeks, not just hours. Although I'm sure the lies he's been telling this week about not knowing who David Duke is has ratcheted that up a bit...

Trump in 1991 (talking about Duke's failed gubanatorial bid and possible white house run):
Larry King: "If he runs and Pat Buchanan runs [for president in 1992], might you see a really divided vote?"

Trump: "Well, I think if they run, or even if David Duke — I mean, George Bush was very, very strong against David Duke. I think if he had it to do again, he might not have gotten involved in that campaign because I think David Duke now, if he runs, takes away almost exclusively Bush votes and then a guy like Cuomo runs — I think Cuomo can win the election."

King: "But Bush morally had to come out against him."

Trump: "I think Bush had to come out against him. I think Bush — if David Duke runs, David Duke is going to get a lot of votes. Whether that be good or bad, David Duke is going to get a lot of votes. Pat Buchanan — who really has many of the same theories, except it’s in a better package — Pat Buchanan is going to take a lot of votes away from George Bush. So if you have these two guys running, or even one of them running, I think George Bush could be in big trouble."

Trump in 2000:
"Well, you’ve got David Duke just joined — a bigot, a racist, a problem. I mean, this is not exactly the people you want in your party. Buchanan’s a disaster as we’ve, you know, covered. Jesse’s a terrific guy who just left the party. And he, you know, it’s unfortunate, but he just left the party. He’s going to be doing his Independence Party from Minnesota."

"The Reform Party now includes a Klansman, Mr. Duke, a neo-Nazi, Mr. Buchanan, and a communist, Ms. Fulani. This not company I wish to keep."

Trump 2 days ago:
"Well, just so you understand, I don’t know anything about David Duke. OK? I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists. So, I don’t know."
________________________________________________________________________

You conveniently did not mention that Donald Trump clearly and succinctly disavowed David Duke in a televised press conference from Ft. Worth last Friday.

Not surprisingly we don’t hear from the left anyone calling for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders to publically reject Black Lives Matter, the militant organization openly calling for the killing of police officers.

Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have pandered to Black Lives Matter whereas Donald Trump openly rejects The Klan.

You seem all upset about "white supremacists", who Donald Trump has disavowed and "black militants", supported by Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, are fine with you.

Okay, I get it. You support the killing of police officers.

Exactly what criteria do you use when picking which hate group to reject and which you support?

Whether you believe it or not, Trump stated he had a malfunctioning ear piece and had trouble hearing.

Trump has allowed access to himself by the media and if Nate Silver would do the statistics, I would not be surprised if Trump media coverage ( by his own choice, btw) is at a 100:1 ratio or words spoken to the press would be 10,000 :1 ratio as compared to Hillary or Bernie.

Now the focus is on a few sentences about a guy he denounced in 2000 and again denounced shortly after the interview.

Like I said , its a full court press to bring him down. I have never seen anything like this.


You really think Trump's media coverage is 1000:1 more than their coverage of Hillary? Really?

Benghazi? Emails? White Water? How many scandals has Hillary been accused of? How many have been true?

As far as I can tell millions of dollars have spent to bring her down and nothing has stuck.

Actually no, you don't get it. At all.
