THE GOP ODD COUPLE – Monmouth University Poll: Dr. Ben Carson Ties Donald Trump with 23% A Piece in Iowa … Carly Fiorina in 3rd Place with 10%

 

THE GOP POLITICAL ODD COUPLE: Ben Carson Ties Donald Trump in Iowa …

In the most recent Monmouth University poll, the soft spoken Ben Carson has tied the outspoken and never at a loss for words Donald Trump at 23%. The political odd couple could not be farther apart in style; however, has one very obvious similar characteristic, they are both political outsiders. The retired neurosurgeon has an incredible favorability rating of 81% favorably, compared with just 6% unfavorable.

Keeping up with the anti-political establishment theme, former business executive Carly Fiorina is in third place in the poll with 10%. How telling is this poll when it comes to Iowans and how they feel about the GOP establishment? Three candidates for the GOP nomination, Trump, Caron and Fiorina, garner 56% of the support. One would think the GOP would get a clue as to how pissed off the electorate is at them and their lack of action and guts they have put forth when the base has given them both the House and the Senate. Rounding out the rest of the poll is Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) at 9%, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker with 7%, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush came in at 5%, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio at 4% each, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul at 3%, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Sen. Rick Santorum (PA) with 2%.

Donald Trump and Ben Carson are tied for the lead of Republican presidential candidates in the first-in-the-nation caucus state of Iowa, according to a Monmouth University poll released on Monday.

The survey found Trump and Carson taking 23 percent support each.

It’s the first survey of Iowa released this month not to show Trump all alone at the top, and further evidence of Carson’s polling strength.

Retired neurosurgeon Carson has the best favorability rating in the field, with 81 percent saying they have a positive view of him, against only 6 percent who said they view him unfavorably.

While billionaire businessman Trump leads in the poll among Tea Party conservatives and men, Carson leads among Evangelicals and women.

Sheriff David Clarke Blasts Barack Obama For Starting The War On Police Following the Assasination of Sheriff Deputy Darren H. Goforth

 

WHY WE LOVE SHERIFF DAVIS CLARKE …

Political correctness does not exist in vocabulary of Sheriff David Clarke. Watch the video below from this weekends Justice with Judge Jeanine. Sheriff Clarke says it as it is and points the blame directly at the doorstep of Barack Hussein Obama and Eric Holder for the ‘War on Police’ climate in America. It is a powerful and important interview to watch. Why is Sheriff Clarke 100% correct? One only needs to hear the deafening silence from the White House regarding this heinous killing of a white police officer at the hand of a black punk.

Enough is enough Obama, act like a president or just admit you are a community agitator looking to cause a race war.

Famed Master of Horror Films Wes Craven Has Died at Age 76

 

FAMED HORROR MOVIE MASTER HAS DIED …

If its a horror movie that made you lose sleep, or be afraid to be in a home alone or have to check the closet, beneath the bed or under the stairs, then most likely you had just seen a horror movie made by Wes Craven. Wes (Wesley) Earl Craven, the master of the horror film genre died on Sunday after his battle with brain cancer at the age of 76. Craven is survived by his third wife, Iya Labunka, also his sister Carol, son Jonathan, daughter Jessica, grandchildren Miles, Max and Myra-Jean and stepdaughter Nina.

Craven is the man who wrote and directed such horror classics as A Nightmare on Elm Street and Freddie Kruger, The Hills Have Eyes, The People Under the Stairs and directed the Scream movies. Then there was his first movie, The Last House on the Left, which may have been his most disturbing of all. Why that film was suggested as a date movie is a an entire story for another day. Wes Craven truly pushed the limits of the horror film genre to the disturbing and yet had it not been for Craven, so many other classic cult horror flicks may not been possible.

Wes Craven

Rest in Peace

Wes Craven, the famed maestro of horror known for the Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream franchises, died Sunday after a battle with brain cancer. He was 76.

Craven, whose iconic Freddy Krueger character horrified viewers for years, died at his home in Los Angeles, his family announced. Survivors include his wife, producer and former Disney Studios vice president Iya Labunka.

Craven was a longtime summer resident of Martha’s Vineyard, where he moved permanently three years ago before returning to L.A. for work and health reasons.
Craven claimed to have gotten the idea for Elm Street from living next to a cemetery on a street of that name in the suburbs of Cleveland. The five Nightmare on Elm Street films were released from 1984-89 and drew big crowds.

Similarly, Craven’s Scream series was a box-office sensation. In those scare-’em-ups, he spoofed the teen horror genre and frequently referenced other horror movies.

Craven’s first feature film was The Last House on the Left, which he wrote, directed and edited in 1972. A rape-revenge movie, it appalled some viewers but generated big box office. Next came another film he wrote and helmed, The Hills Have Eyes (1977).

Wes Craven’s New Nightmare trailer (1994)

Wes Craven reinvented horror three times: cinema looks scary without him.

Wesley Earl Craven was born Aug. 2, 1939 in Cleveland. His father died when he was 5. Raised in a strict Baptist household, he graduated from Wheaton College with degrees in English and psychology, then earned a master’s in philosophy and writing from Johns Hopkins.

If you can judge a film-maker’s influence by how many copycats they inspire, then Wes Craven has to be seen as one of the most influential. Three times he changed his mind about what horror movies should be, and three times we were promptly flooded with all manner of dodgy knock-offs.

And yet The Last House on the Left captured the public mood. It was released into a world reeling from the Manson murders, Vietnam, Altamont and Nixon, and it hit all its marks perfectly. The fact that it was made for less than $90,000, which gave it a rough-and-ready vérité look that just made the horrors seem more real, only magnified its impact. Without The Last House on the Left, there’d be no Texas Chainsaw Massacre, no I Spit on Your Grave, no Halloween. Its advertising campaign (“It’s only a movie, it’s only a movie”) handed more power to marketers and films as varied as Fargo and Paranormal Activity owe a lot to its “The following is based on a true story” misdirect.

Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson Provides Strong Words in Support of Law Enforcement … “It Is Time for the Silent Majority in this Country to Support Law Enforcement!”

 

FINALLY, SOME ONE COMES OUT AND SAYS IT!!!

Following the heinous and cowardly assassination style shooting of Sheriff Deputy Darren H. Goforth, Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson provided some very strong words in support of law enforcement and against the thug-like lawlessness that took the officers life. District Attorney Devon Anderson stated, “It is time for the silent majority in this country to support law enforcement and condemn this atrocious act.”

“It is time for the silent majority in this country to support law enforcement! There are a few bad apples in every profession. That does not mean that there should be open warfare declared on law enforcement. The vast majority of officers are there to do the right thing, are there because they care about their community and want to make it a safer place. What happened last night is an assault on the very fabric of society. It is not anything that we can tolerate.

It is time to come forward and support law enforcement and condemn this atrocious act!

EXIT QUESTION: WHY IS BARACK OBAMA NOT MAKING THIS SAME STATEMENT? OR DOES HE SUPPORT WHAT IS HAPPENING?

Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics Iowa Poll: Donald Trump in the Lead at 23% While Ben Carson is Second at 18%

 

Republicans in Iowa want nothing to new with establishment political candidates …

According to the most recent Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics Iowa Poll, businessman Donald Trump leads the field with 23%, while retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson is second at 18%. The two front-running GOP candidates couldn’t be farther apart in personality and demeanor. However, they have something very much in common that is causing them to be one, two in the Iowa polls. They both are not professional politicians. They are both DC outsiders and the voters are rewarding them for it. Followed by Ted Cruz at 8%, Scott Walker at 8%, Jeb Bush at 6%, Marco Rubio at 6%, Carly Fiorina at 5%, Mike Huckabee at 4% and Rand Paul at 4%. As stated at the Political Wire, what is much more interest when it comes to Trump is that he has completely reversed his favorable/unfavorable rating from May 2015 when he had a then, 27% had positive feelings about him and 63% negative. Now, it’s 61% positive, 35% negative.

Trump_Carson

Donald Trump has built up tremendous support in Iowa — he’s very wealthy, he loves the Bible and he’d be just terrific as president of the United States. And he’s very handsome.

That’s according to interviews with some likely GOP caucusgoers in Iowa.

A new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics Iowa Poll finds that Trump, the flamboyant real estate entrepreneur, has 23 percent support here. But Ben Carson, a soft-spoken retired neurosurgeon, has been a submarine, quietly cruising into second with 18 percent, just 5 percentage points from the front-runner.

Carson has the highest favorability rating of the 17 Republican candidates, with 79 percent who view him positively. Only 8 percent have negative feelings about him.

The GOP voting electorate is pissed off at the Republican establishment just as much as they are with Democrats. Republicans and namely Conservatives are sick and tired of Republican do-nothing politicians. They are fed up with giving the GOP both the House and the Senate and then having the GOP establishment and those in power because of seniority treat the GOP voting electorate worse than Democrats. Most conservatives would never vote for Trump; however, the Republican party establishment has reached a breaking point where its time to teach them a lesson.

Candidates who are political outsiders don’t seem to be just a summer fling, as some analysts had predicted, but a budding long-term relationship five months out from the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses.

Combine Trump, Carson and Fiorina — three candidates who have never been elected to any public office — and their support accounts for 46 percent of the vote.

Part of what’s driving their ballot share is a “mad as hell” contingent. Forty-three percent of likely GOP caucusgoers say they’re mad as hell about the Internal Revenue Service; 48 percent about Democrats in Congress; 57 percent with President Barack Obama; and 58 percent with Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.

30 Year Old Shannon Miles Arrested and Charged with Capital Murder in the Shooting Death of Harris County Sheriff Deputy Darren H. Goforth

 

PUNK COWARD ARRESTED AND CHARGED WITH CAPITAL MURDER …

30 year old Shannon J. Miles has been arrested in the “assassination style” murder of Harris County Sheriff Deputy Darren H. Goforth. Police officers arrested Miles about 2:30 a.m. Saturday and murderer remains in custody. Miles has been identified at the individual who gunned down Deputy Goforth from behind as the officer pumped gas into his patrol car. The thug then stood over the already mortally wounded police officer and fired even more shots into his body. The murder weapon has been recovered. Police say they are not looking for additional suspects. Miles is the lone suspect and gunman who acted alone. The criminal suspect as a criminal record, imagine that?

Besides a capital murder charge, where is the hate crime charge also? The suspect, a black man heinously and brutally killed a white cop. There should be no double standard. POLICE LIVES MATTER!!! However, you know whose life does not matter … Shannon Miles. The sooner they put this cowardly, thug murderer, the better.

Shannon J. Miles

 A lone suspect in the ‘cold-blooded assassination’ of a Texas sheriff’s deputy has been identified as Shannon J. Miles, 30, who will be charged with capital murder for allegedly gunning down the officer as he pumped gas, authorities said Saturday.

Sheriff Ron Hickman released few details about the suspect Saturday in a press conference. Miles has a list of prior convictions including resisting arrest, trespassing and disorderly conduct with a fire arm, he said.

Officers arrested Miles about 2:30 a.m. Saturday and he remains in custody. The District Attorney’s office is expected to arraign Miles in the next few days, Hickman said.

Iowa Poll: Hillary Clinton Leads Socialist Bernie Sanders in Iowa 37% to 30%

 

SOCIALIST BERNIE SANDERS IS NARROWING THE GAP …

Doesn’t this speak volumes of the Democrat party. According to a new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics Iowa Poll, self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders has narrowed the gap on Hillary Clinton in polling for the Democratic presidential nominee, 37% to 30%. The Vermont Senator now only trails Hillary by 7. How is this possible? Just how damaged a candidate is Hillary Clinton, or has the Democrat party finally jumped the shark and truly has become nothing more than a Socialist party? And of course what does it say about the Democrat party in general when we have an open election for the next president of the United States and all the Donkeys can provide as candidates is a liar, a socialist, two unknowns that no one cares about and crazy VP who has not declared whether he is in or out.

Clinton_Sanders

Liberal revolutionary Bernie Sanders, riding an updraft of insurgent passion in Iowa, has closed to within 7 points of Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential race.

She’s the first choice of 37 percent of likely Democratic caucusgoers; he’s the pick for 30 percent, according to a new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics Iowa Poll.

But Clinton has lost a third of her supporters since May, a trajectory that if sustained puts her at risk of losing again in Iowa, the initial crucible in the presidential nominating contest.
