Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus Says GOP Candidates Should Pledge Not to Make Third-Party Bids

JUST CURIOUS, WHERE IS THE ESTABLISHMENT GOP MAKING THIS SAME REQUEST WHEN ESTABLISHMENT CANDIDATES RUN THIRD PARTY BIDS?

From The Politico, the Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebushas stated that GOP candidates should go on record and pledge they will not run a a third-party candidate in the 2016 Presidential general election. Wow, really Reince? All Republican candidates, or just one, Donald Trump? It would appear that The Donald is giving the establishment GOP fits as he is not following their script, telling it like it is and leading in many of the polls. Now whether you like him or hate him, Donald Trump serves a purpose. He is only popular because he represents the anti-establishment government do-nothing politician. The point of the matter is, the establishment GOP had best treat all candidates fairly, including one’s that don’t toe the RINO GOP party line. The Republican party these days treats their base worse than they do the likes of Hillary Clinton and Democrats. Maybe, just maybe a third party run is in order to destroy onnace and for all this establishment GOP, Democrat-light power hold. If Trump does run as a 3rd party candidate, the GOP will only have itself to blame.

Republican candidates for president should pledge not to run as a third-party candidate, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said Monday.

Presidential election. The remarks come days after current GOP front-runner Donald Trump hinted that he might pursue a third-party bid if the national committee treats him poorly during the primary process. In subsequent interviews, Trump has said the party has treated him well.

“Certainly, I think our candidates should pledge not to run as a third-party candidate. I don’t see that happening. I think everyone understands that if Hillary Clinton’s going to get beat, she’s going to get beat by a Republican. And most people that run for president run to win, and if our candidates want to win, then they’ll have to run as a Republican,” Priebus told NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie in a Monday interview on “Today.”

“I don’t fear that, and I think you’ve even seen Donald Trump walk that back over the last few days as well,” he added, praising his party’s “varsity squad” of 16 candidates.

Just curious Renince … where were you calling for Lisa Murkowski not to run as an independent, write in candidate after she lost to the Tea Party candidate Joe Miller in the Alaska US Senate primary? Hmm? Oh that’s right, she was an establishment GOP shill.

Gallup Poll – Democrat 2016 Presidential Candidates: Hillary Clinton’s Favorability Continues to Fall as Socialist Bernie Sanders Rises

DRIP, DRIP, DRIP … HILLARY CLINTON’S FAVORABILITY RATINGS KEEP FALLING …

According to a recent Gallup poll, the presumptive nominee for the Democrat party Hillary Clinton’s favorability ratings continue to fall. In contract, the self-proclaims socialist Senator from Vermont and Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders continues to rise in the polls. Hillary Clinton’s rating has slipped to 43% from 48% in April, while her unfavorable rating has climbed to 46%, worst since December 2007. Maybe it is only taking some time for individuals to remember what a lying, dishonest, untrustworthy, non-transparent shrew this woman truly is? Between Benghazi and her insincerity when it comes to her emails on her personal server when she was Secretary of State under Obama, Hillary is losing favor with the American people. In some cases, other polls even have Hillary now losing in battleground states to her GOP rivals.

What difference does my unfavoability make?

However on the other hand, socialist Bernie Sanders has doubled his favorability rating in the Gallup poll since his initial reading in March, rising to 24% from 12%. What does that tell us of what the Democrat party has become … the rise of the socialist. Sanders also has a way to go on the upside as he is still not known to many. However, Hillary is a household name where the only people who don’t know who Hillary is may not know their own name. There is a reason why Clinton makes herself scarce to the media and the minions, the more people get to know her, the more they hate her. Take for instance her condescending tone the other day and scratching of the chalkboard with your fingernails like voice yesterday when she blamed the heat on inaccuracies with her email scandal. Watch the VIDEO and listen to her voice if you dare. Really Hillary, you mean it wasn’t a right-wing conspiracy?

Honesty, if Hillary Clinton has any kind of issue in the Democrat primary running against the likes of current US Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley at and former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee, what does that say about Hillary? Also, shame on the Democrat party for not having another viable candidate to vote for. Or does this party really have no prospects? Its Hillary or bust.

Chart – Gallup

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ favorable rating among Americans has doubled since Gallup’s initial reading in March, rising to 24% from 12% as he has become better known. Hillary Clinton’s rating has slipped to 43% from 48% in April. At the same time, Clinton’s unfavorable rating increased to 46%, tilting her image negative and producing her worst net favorable score since December 2007.

Sanders’ increased favorability reflects the broader increase in the public’s familiarity with him since March. Overall, 44% of Americans are able to rate him today, up from 24% in March. Not only has the percentage viewing him favorably increased, but also the percentage viewing him unfavorably has risen, up eight percentage points to 20%.

Clinton’s Inauspicious Rivals

Clinton maintains a higher absolute favorable rating from Americans than any of her official rivals for the 2016 Democratic nomination. In contrast to the relative prominence of numerous candidates on the Republican side, she remains the only Democratic candidate known well enough by a majority of Americans for them to rate her, which helps Clinton maintain a higher overall favorable score.

Sanders is still an unknown to a majority of Americans, with just 44% able to rate him compared with Clinton’s 89%. Total familiarity drops still further among the other three announced Democratic candidates: to 23% for former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley at 22% and former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee at 17%. With slightly more Americans viewing each of these candidates unfavorably than favorably, their favorable scores reach no more than 11%.

Two Inspectors Generals Ask Justice Department to Open Criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton Email Account

THIS IS HARDLY VIA A RIGHT WING CONSPIRACY, THIS CRIMINAL PROBE IS BEING REQUESTED BY TWO INSPECTOR GENERALS …

The New York Times report Thursday that two inspectors general had made a criminal referral to the Justice Department with regards to Hillary Clinton’s personal email account as Secretary of State and at least four messages from her email that contained classified information. That was before the NY Times decided to scrub their story at the bequest of the Clinton camp. No left-wing media bias there, huh? Who thinks the Times would change a story like this for a GOP presidential candidate?

Hillary Clinton sent at least four messages from her personal email account containing classified information during her time as secretary of state, according to a memo from the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community obtained by the Wall Street Journal.

Following a New York Times report Thursday that two inspectors general had made a criminal referral to the Justice Department, the Journal cited a letter to Congress from the inspector general.The Times later made revisions to the initial story.

Email/Server-gate is going to hound her all the way to the 2016 Presidential election. The media talks about how Trump should withdraw for what he has said about illegals. If that is the case, Hillary Clinton should withdraw immediately for her actions and lack of transparency as Secretary of State under Obama. Speaking of Obama, will his DOJ actually investigate Hillary? If not, why not?

CNBC: Criminal Inquiry Is Sought in Clinton Email Account.

Two inspectors general have asked the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation into whether sensitive government information was mishandled in connection with the personal email account Hillary Rodham Clinton used as secretary of state, senior government officials said Thursday.

The request follows an assessment in a June 29 memo by the inspectors general for the State Department and the intelligence agencies that Mrs. Clinton’s private account contained “hundreds of potentially classified emails.” The memo was written to Patrick F. Kennedy, the under secretary of state for management.

It is not clear if any of the information in the emails was marked as classified by the State Department when Mrs. Clinton sent or received them.

Quinnipiac University Poll: Hillary Clinton Trails Top Republicans (Bush, Rubio & Walker) in Battleground States of Iowa, Colorado & Virginia

WOW, DOES HILLARY CLINTON HAVE A REAL ISSUE IN A GENERAL ELECTION AGAINST THE GOP?

As reported at CNN, a recent Quinnipiac University poll of swing state shows the Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton is trailing former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in each of the states of Colorado, Iowa and Virginia. This is an amazing turn of events from the all but crowned Democrat 2016 presidential nominee. Hillary is doing terribly in these polls as to being honest and trust worthy. At least some people in America are finally paying attention as Hillary Clinton might be one of the most insincere, most un-trustworthy presidential candidates ever. Between her lack of answers and stonewalling on Benghazi as Secretary of State, her less than transparent private email account and private server she used to conduct business as Secretary of State and then destroying said emails and her over-all unwillingness to make herself available to the media and the people as a presidential candidate. Could the gig finally be up for Hillary? It’s not like one would think her poll numbers could get better? She has 100% name recognition, but her lack of honesty may just be her undoing. But as Hillary would say of her lack of transparency and honest, “what difference does it make”. Hopefully it will make a huge difference with the voters.

Hillary_Clinton_Poll 072215 Battleground  states

Hillary Clinton trails three top Republican presidential candidates in head-to-head matchups in Colorado, Iowa and Virginia, a new survey shows.

The latest Quinnipiac University swing state polling released Wednesday shows the Democratic frontrunner trailing former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in each of those states.

The biggest loser, the polls found, is Donald Trump, who has surged to the front of a crowded Republican primary field nationally but is viewed unfavorably, by almost a 2-to-1 margin, by voters in those states.

The results offered more indications that Clinton has a problem: Voters say they don’t trust her.

In Colorado, only 34% of voters said they see Clinton as honest and trustworthy while 62% said they don’t. In Iowa, the numbers were 33% to 59% — a drop from 45% to 47% in April. And in Virginia, Clinton did best, at 39% saying they trust her to 55% saying they don’t.

In Colorado, Clinton trails Rubio 38%-46%, Bush 36%-41% and Walker 38%-47%. In Iowa, she trails Rubio 36%-44%, Bush 36%-42% and Walker 37%-45%. And in Virginia, Clinton has the narrowest margins between her and her Republican opponents, where she lags behind Rubio 41%-43%, Bush 39%-42% and Walker 40%-43%.

If the people of the United States ever want to have a prayer of trying to save their country and get it back on course they will never vote for Hillary.

Donald Trump Goes There, John McCain’s a War Hero Because He Was Captured, “I Like People That Weren’t” … “We Want Results … We Don’t Want Tone”

THIS GROUP WANTS RESULTS, THEY DON’T WANT TONE …

It looks like there is a little riff between The Donald and Sen. John McCain (AZ-R). Nothing is off limits for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, and in thinking about it, it probably should not be. Trump reminds McCain and the rest of the establishment GOP, you better not bring a knife to a gun fight.  During Family Leadership Summit in Iowa Donald Trump went there and said the following of RINO John McCain, “He’s a war hero ’cause he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured.” OUCH, he certainly did go there. Now just to provide context to those remarks from Trump, McCain who earlier criticized the Donald for “firing up the crazies” last weekend during a rally in his home state of Arizona.

Was it right for Trump to make the statement, probably not. Donald Trump meant it as a specific comeback against McCain, who had made an insulting comment about Trump followers, calling them crazies. But it will be taken as an attack against all POW’s. But, are all POW’s considered heroes? I, personally believe they are, but not all do. Because of course If Sen. John McCain is not willing to take the arrows, he should stay out of the fight. Why is it okay to insult American citizens who happen to gravitate to the blunt, strait forward message of Trump? Why is it okay for McCain to call American’s crazies who think he’s a Rino? HERE IS THE MAIN POINT, just because one is a war hero does not give them carte blanche to make insulting comments about others. Have you ever seen McCain when he is challenged on a topic, crazies, eh? Personally, I am sick of McCain, he needs to retire or get a full time gig on a cable network. God only knows he is on them enough. John McCain had his chance to run for president and he failed badly. Is McCain a war hero, yes! Has McCain done anything as a politician, no. One would think that he would make the VA his pet project and make sure it has been fixed for wounded warriors. How’s that been going?

In the end, Trump probably owes POW’s an apology, but isn’t that part of the problem of the sad state of affairs that this country has become? Everyone and their mother is offended about something someone said, because they are only willing to look at their own situation and not the bigger picture? Trump made a larger point during this interview and that was, the people want results, they don’t want tone. HE IS CORRECT. When everyone is so worried about tone, an being PC and making sure that every word they say doesn’t offend anyone … in the end, you have said nothing of any importance. Remember when Americans cared more about America than themselves and their fragile feelings? Me neither.

Is Donald Trump rough around the edges, YES. Does he give a damn what he says and who’s feelings he hurts, it doesn’t appear so. Can Trump win the GOP nomination, I don’t think so. But I don’t believe that is Trump’s purpose in life. I think Trump’s ultimate gift to America is not to be President of the United States, sorry Donald, but to bring the gutless, limousine, establishment Republicans back in line with the Republican base and make them responsive to the will of the people who are registered Republicans and the true Independent voters who want leadership in the mode of Ronald Reagan. Lest we remind everyone, including all the mushy-middle Republican politicians, Reagan fought the establishment, privileged GOP just as much as he did Democrats, sometimes maybe even more.

With what Walker has done in Wisconsin, including winning 3 elections in 4 years in a blue state. Walker has battling the special interest groups and won, including a recall election. Walker is a strong and viable candidate for the GOP.

Facebook – Scott Walker

Scott Walker made it official today, breaking the news that he is a Republican candidate in the 2016 presidential race first in a Facebook post this morning before a formal announcement event in Wisconsin later today.

“I’m in. I’m running for President of the United States because Americans deserve a leader who will fight and win for them,” the two-term Wisconsin governor says in the Facebook post, which includes a video in which he argues that his track record as governor sets him apart from the rest of the Republican field as a proven leader who has succeeded in winning elections and taking on big policy battles.

Reuters-Ipsos Poll Has a Virtual Tie at the Top Between Donald Trump and Jeb Bush for 2016 GOP Presidential Nomination

Not a serious candidate, eh …

According to the most current Reuters-Ipsos poll, Donald Trump and Jeb Bush are in a virtual tie for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. Like him or not, Donald Trump has truly tapped into something that is not necessarily a Republican issue, its an American one. The issue with illegals in the United States has gotten to critical mass as they are not only taking jobs away from Americans, costing municipalities huge amounts of money in healthcare and education infrastructure, they are also committing crimes at an alarming rate. Many individuals who never thought Trump was a viable candidate have gravitated to him because he is not afraid to speak the truth when it comes to illegals and crimes in the United States. The more the establishment Republicans condemn Trump, the more The Donald gains in popularity. What the party-line GOP better start to understand is Americans are sick and tired of gutless politicians. Why Trump is surging in the polls is because he is not afraid to go off the PC speak script and say things where weak-kneed politicians fear to go.

VIDEO – CBS News

GOP presidential candidates Jeb Bush and Donald Trump are locked in a virtual tie for the 2016 Republican nomination, according to a Reuters-Ipsos poll released Saturday.

It found that 16.1 percent of self-identified Republicans back Bush, the former governor of Florida.

Trump, a New York business mogul, chases Bush’s lead with 15.8 percent support.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie came in third 9.5 percent of possible voters’ backing.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is next at 8.1 percent, followed by retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson at 7.2 percent.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker – widely expected to enter the 2016 field Monday – earned 5.8 percent.

UPDATE I: Trump on Jeb Bush: “I don’t see him as a factor”.

Trump, whose most recent poll numbers show him in a close race with Bush, knocked the GOP establishment frontrunner, saying “I don’t see [Bush] as a factor.”

“How can I be tied with Jeb Bush?” Trump said at a rally at the Phoenix, Arizona convention center. “He’s terrible. He’s weak on immigration. Sanctuary cities. Did you know that he had five of them in Florida when he was governor?”

“We have incompetent politicians — not only the president,” Trump told the crowd, which, according to his campaign, numbered in the thousands. “I mean, right here in your own state you have John McCain. I just hate to see when people don’t have common sense, don’t have an understanding of what’s going on. … Some people don’t get it and I don’t think they’ll be in office much longer.”
