THERE APPEARS TO BE A NEW GOP FRONT RUNNER …
According to a NBC/WSJ poll, the ultimate outsider and anti-establishment presidential candidate Ben Carson has surged into the lead with 29%, followed by Donald Trump at 23%, Marco Rubio at 11% Ted Cruz at 10% and Jeb Bush at 8%. Also, Carson polls at 50% as to who Republican voters select as their first or second choice. It is becoming apparent in many polls that Carson is trending to be the front-runner for the GOP. Even though, most national polls have shown Trump comfortably ahead in the race for the Republican presidential nomination since July, Carson has recently made strong strides in Iowa polls and some national ones. Also, according to the Politico, Carson is making huge strides in campaign fundraising.
However, how long will it be before the Democrat media complex begin their assault on Carson? Something the liberal MSM never did with Barack Obama when he ran in 2008 or 2012. And will they be called racist for attacking him as many were when they criticized Obama’s policies and liberal agenda?
Ben Carson has surged into the lead of the Republican presidential race, getting support from 29 percent of GOP primary voters, according to a brand-new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
That’s the highest percentage any GOP candidate has obtained so far in the survey.
Carson’s 29 percent is followed by Donald Trump at 23 percent, Marco Rubio at 11 percent, Ted Cruz at 10 percent and Jeb Bush at 8 percent. These findings are similar to a New York Times/CBS poll released last week, which also showed Carson in first place in the national GOP contest.
GOP Presidential Debate: NJ Gov. Chris Christie Fires Back at CNBC Moderator John Harwood: “Do You Want Me To Answer Or Do You Want To Answer?”… “Because I got to tell you the truth, even in New Jersey what you’re doing is called rude.”
CNBC Moderators show they are a complete disgrace again at last nights GOP Presidential Debate in Boulder, CO …
Who would have ever thought a NBC business channel in CNBC would have ever acted worse than MSNBC?
How bad are moderators when a New Jersian says that what they are doing and how they are conducting themselves would be called rude in New Jersey? But that was the tenor, mood and theme of last nights GOP debate as the liberal and bias CNBC moderators were more interested in listening to themselves talk, insult the candidates and just be down right nasty. Its one thing for a moderator is ask tough questions, but what CNBC did last night was over the top. You could actually feel the venom and contempt that the moderators had for the Republican candidates.
“John, do you want me to answer or do you want to answer?” Christie asked the reporter at Wednesday’s Republican primary debate. “Because I got to tell you the truth, even in New Jersey what you’re doing is called rude.”
Note to RNC, why exactly did you schedule this debate? And if you ever allow another one on this Democrat, liberal propaganda new channel, some one need to be fired.
Senator Ted Cruz Rips CNBC Liberal, Bias, Agenda Driven Moderators at GOP Presidential Debate (VIDEO) … “This Debate Illustrates Why We Can Not Trust The Media”
The question is now settled science … the MSM is completely bias and in the tank for the Democrat party.
At last nights GOP Presidential Debate on CNBC, Republican presidential candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) ripped the liberal CNBC moderators and exposed them for the liberal, bias, Leftist, agenda driven, in the tank Democrat party propagandists that they are. From the very outset of the debate, the moderators began their snarky gotcha questions and seemed more inclined to insult the candidates and start a food fight than to actually have the American public hear how any of the candidates would handle certain situations and what their economic policies were.
CNBC, YOU ARE A DISGRACE!!!
Finally, Ted Cruz ripped the moderators a new one and let them have it … “This Debate Illustrates Why We Can Not Trust The Media”
”The men and women on this stage have more ideas, more experience, more common sense than any participant in the Democratic debate,”
At the Republican debate hosted by CNBC in Boulder, Colorado Wednesday night, presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz lambasted the moderators, particularly John Harwood of The New York Times, and the media for their treatment and characterization of himself and his competitors.
“The questions asked in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media,” Cruz at Wednesday’s Republican debate. “Everyone home tonight knows that the moderators have no intention of voting in a Republican primary.”
Cruz later went tete-a-tete with Harwood, a CNBC contributor, for cutting him off and wanting to move on.
“Congressional Republicans, Democrats and the White House are about to strike a compromise that would raise the debt limit, prevent a government shutdown, and calm financial markets of the fear that a Washington crisis is on the way. Does your opposition to it show you’re not the kind of problem-solver that American voters want?” CNBC anchor Carl Quintanilla asked the presidential candidate.
“Let me say something at the outset,” the Senator from Texas said. “The questions asked in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media.”
“This is not a cage match. And you look at the questions — Donald Trump, are you a comic book villain? Ben Carson, can you do math? John Kasich, will you insult two people over here? Marco Rubio, why don’t you resign? Jeb Bush, why have your numbers fallen? How about talking about the substantive issues,” Cruz said to commanding applause from the audience.
Precedent Set that Government is Above the Law: Lois Lerner Skates on IRS Targeting Scandal as Obama Administration Finds Lerner Has Done Nothing Wrong
IMAGINE THAT, THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION INVESTIGATES ITSELF AND FINDS IT HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG …
WTF, a terrible precedent has been set that states the government is above the law and can do anything against We the People … The officials in Washington constantly talk about how our immigration system in America is broken. WRONG, WASHINGTON, DC AND OUR GOVERNMENT IS BROKEN. In news that many may not have heard about as the liberal MSM, with Fox News in tow decided to over report on Hurricane Patricia and how it was supposed to be the hurricanes to end all hurricanes and destroy the world. The Barack Obama Justice Department has declined to file charges against IRS enforcer Lois Lerner, who purposely and willfully targeted Conservative and Tea Party groups for political purposes in an attempt to silence them. ARE YOU KIDDING? Lois Lerner should be in leg irons and in federal prison for what she did in an abuse of power and her IRS office. How can this be that an individual can break the law, get caught red-handed, stonewall and cover-up an investigation, but because you did it for the political party that is in power, you are not prosecuted for your crimes? UNREAL. This is an example of a US federal government gone rouge under the decisive and deceitful presidency of Barack Obama. America should have zero confidence any more that the federal government can be held accountable to We the People. Thanks to Barack Obama and his non-transparent presidency and this terrible precedent, we no longer have a government of, by and for the people but a government that is above the law.
There may have never been a greater abuse of power and cover up, ever.
The Law: The Justice Department declined to file charges against IRS enforcer Lois Lerner, who singled out Tea Party groups for scrutiny on political grounds. With no accountability, it’s now open season on dissidents.
Is there anyone out there subject to an Internal Revenue Service audit or a multiyear delay in approval for tax-exempt status who won’t be concerned that the process is politically rigged against them?
That’s the message the Justice Department sent when, in a classic Friday night news dump, it decided to not file charges against IRS tax-exempt groups chief Lois Lerner. In a letter to the House Judiciary Committee, Justice said that while it found “mismanagement, poor judgment and inertia,” there was no case for a criminal prosecution.
This is absurd. Lerner was caught red-handed targeting Tea Party and other conservative groups, wrote partisan emails to prove it, then engaged in a massive cover-up effort — with a suspiciously crashed server, an oddly missing BlackBerry and plenty of excuses.
She evaded even more accountability by shielding herself with the Fifth Amendment in Congress. The consequences to her have been . .. retirement on a full pension with all her bonuses to a multimillion-dollar mansion in the deep D.C. suburbs.
As for her victims — and they were many — there is no justice. Now everyone, no matter what their political leanings, will wonder if they too are a political target by an out-of-control agency protected by the Justice Department.
Because that’s the real consequence of this failure to hold Lerner accountable: A precedent has been set.
IRS officials now know they can go after any political opponent they want, ruin them any way they wish, swing an election — as occurred with Lerner’s actions — and get away with it.
No wonder confidence in government has plunged. Last June, Gallup conducted a survey on confidence in public institutions and found it “below historic norms” and with confidence in justice dropping to its lowest point since Barack Obama took office. Just 23% of the public had high or some confidence in a justice system that could play fairly; 34% had little or no confidence
To liberals who think this is a laughing matter and are giggling in some childish manner that they got away with something. I have two words, YOU’RE NEXT. No one should have any issues if there is a Republican president in office and they use the IRS to attack the LEFT. In fact, I insist that they do. Let’s see you guys twist in the wind and see what it feels like. And I do not want to hear the MSM condemn any future GOP administration for using the IRS has a goon squad to attack liberals. You certainly can’t call foul, you had your chance and failed to do so.
ANOTHER DUST UP BETWEEN TRUMP AND FOX NEWS …
As reported at The Hill, Donald Trump has put a moratorium on Fox News interviews. Donald Trump took to Twitter and tweeted … @FoxNews has been treating me very unfairly & I have therefore decided that I won’t be doing any more Fox shows for the foreseeable future. In essence Basically Fox News called Trump “stale” and “tiresome”. Hmm really? As the BPR opines, those are two words not normally associated with the man who energized Republican primary politics this year. Sorry, love Trump or hate him … support him, like his brashness or think he is the worst thing in the world, it is obvious these days that FOX News has become like its competitors that they have railed against in the MSM for so long. FOX News has an agenda for establishment Republicans and the Carl Rove types.
GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Wednesday he will not appear on Fox News programs “for the foreseeable future,” claiming he was unfairly treated.
Trump did not detail the alleged unfair treatment.
But Fox News said the “boycott” followed its cancellation of an appearance by the outspoken real estate mogul on Bill O’Reilly’s show on Thursday.
“At 11:45 am today, we canceled Donald Trump’s scheduled appearance on The O’Reilly Factor on Thursday, which resulted in Mr. Trump’s subsequent tweet about his ‘boycott’ of FOX News,” a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement.
“The press predictably jumped to cover his tweet, creating yet another distraction from any real issues that Mr. Trump might be questioned about,” the statement continued.
“When coverage doesn’t go his way, he engages in personal attacks on our anchors and hosts, which has grown stale and tiresome. He doesn’t seem to grasp that candidates telling journalists what to ask is not how the media works in this country,” the spokesperson added.
Trump targeted O’Reilly in a series of tweets on Monday night, saying O’Reilly featured the “same old Trump haters.”
NO HILLARY, WHAT YOU DID WAS A CRIME AND YOU SHOULD BE JAILED FOR IT …
In an interview with the Associated Press during a Labor Day campaign swing through Iowa, Hillary Clinton remained unapologetic regarding the use of her private emails and server while she conducted work as the Secretary of State. She claimed “what I did was allowed” and that this was nothing more than a “distraction.” REALLY, so the feds investigate things that are allowed and distractions? NO, WHAT YOU DID WAS A CRIME. Also, her drop in the polls is a direct result of her scandals. Hillary also said that she plans to reintroduce herself to the American people. How does that go Hillary, no my name isn’t Hillary Rob ‘em Clinton and I am not a complete lying sack of garbage? Something like that? She cannot even admit the truth that her campaign has been hurt be the email/server scandal. How else would you explain that self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders now leads her in New Hampshire and when voters are asked what words best describes Hillary Clinton, they say liar.
Sorry, this woman belongs in leg-irons, not the presidency.
Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday she does not need to apologize for using a private email account and server while at the State Department because “what I did was allowed.”
In an interview with The Associated Press during a Labor Day campaign swing through Iowa, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination also said the lingering questions about her email practices while serving as President Barack Obama’s first secretary of state have not damaged her campaign.
“Not at all. It’s a distraction, certainly,” Clinton said. “But it hasn’t in any way affected the plan for our campaign, the efforts we’re making to organize here in Iowa and elsewhere in the country. And I still feel very confident about the organization and the message that my campaign is putting out.”
Yet even in calling the inquiry into how she used email as the nation’s top diplomat a distraction, Clinton played down how it has affected her personally as a candidate.
“As the person who has been at the center of it, not very much,” Clinton said. “I have worked really hard this summer, sticking to my game plan about how I wanted to sort of reintroduce myself to the American people.”
As she has often said in recent weeks, Clinton told AP it would have been a “better choice” for her to use separate email accounts for her personal and public business. “I’ve also tried to not only take responsibility, because it was my decision, but to be as transparent as possible,” Clinton said.
Part of that effort, Clinton said, is answering any questions about her email “in as many different settings as I can.” She noted she has sought for nearly a year to testify before Congress about the issue, and that she is now slated to do so in October.
The one-on-one interview with AP was the second for Clinton in the past four days. On Friday, she did not apologize for using a private email system when asked directly by NBC, “Are you sorry?” Asked Monday by the AP why she won’t directly apologize, Clinton said: “What I did was allowed. It was allowed by the State Department. The State Department has confirmed that.
“I did not send or receive any information marked classified,” Clinton said. “I take the responsibilities of handling classified materials very seriously and did so.”
Clinton’s efforts to address the email issue comes as her chief rival for the Democratic nomination, independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, exits the summer surging in still-quite-early public opinion polls and drawing massive crowds to his rallies and events.
If Hillary Clinton was a Republican the MSM would be calling for her to be put in the stocks.
THE REAL QUESTION IS WHEN WILL AL SHARPTON’S LAST SHOW BE, PERIOD!
The Politico is reporting that Al Sharpton and his unwatchable show, ‘PoliticsNation,’ will be moved from its daily spot to Sunday morning. Sharpton stated in an interview, “I never wanted to be a weeknight pundit. I wanted to be a Sunday morning newsmaker. I wanted to be Dr. Martin Luther King, not Larry King.” Note to Reverend Al, you are neither, you are a race baiter and race profiteer.
MSNBC should have admitted their mistake and just dumped Al altogether. Sorry, but is his is not watchable. Now his new show will be shown at Sunday morning at 8, because that is a big time viewership time slot.
Al Sharpton is leaving MSNBC’s weekday dayside lineup, and moving to Sunday mornings.
Sharpton’s last weekday “PoliticsNation” will be Sept. 4. He moves to Sundays a month later on Oct. 4, according to a memo sent to MSNBC staff by the channel’s president Phil Griffin Wednesday evening.
“I want to congratulate Al and his team. For four years they have done a terrific job bringing his voice and a big spotlight to issues of justice, civil rights and equality. And as many of you know, The Rev never missed a show,” Griffin wrote in the email. “I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do with a Sunday morning newsmaker program.”
This means that Sharpton will only air for one hour a week, rather that been seen 5 times a week on a daily basis. I guess for that we should say thank you to BSNBC. This is all a part of the shakeup at MSNBC in an attempt to get ratings that actually can be measured.
JUST CURIOUS, IS IT POSSIBLE TO PULL THE PLUG ON AN ENTIRE NETWORK?
As reported at The Politico, LSNBC, BSNBC, MSNBC is pulling the plug on three shows, “The Cycle,” “Now with Alex Wagner” and “The Ed Show.” But is anyone going to miss them, no one watched the garbage in the first place. MSNBC President Phil Griffin says the moves was made to change the uber-liberal cable channel as a straight-forward news and politics channel, at least in daytime. Now that’s funny, reporting straight forward, no liberal spin news. Who are they going to replace these failed shows with Bill O’Reilly?
Coming in September 2015, MSNBC will add a 5 PM program hosted by “Meet The Press” moderator Chuck Todd, while Brian Williams, the former “Nightly News” anchor, will serve as the network’s breaking news and special reports anchor. Oh yeah, that will change the liberal slanted, moonbat network programming, adding lying Brian Williams to the mix. PLEASE!!!
MSNBC has formally decided to cancel three programs — “The Cycle,” “Now with Alex Wagner” and “The Ed Show” — as part of a larger effort to shift its daytime lineup away from opinion programming, network sources told the On Media blog on Thursday.
Alex Wagner and Ari Melber, a “Cycle” co-host and MSNBC’s chief legal correspondent, will remain with the network. Ed Schultz, the host of “The Ed Show,” will leave the network, as will “Cycle” co-hosts Abby Huntsman, Krystal Ball and Toure. MSNBC President Phil Griffin announced the news in a memo sent shortly after the initial version of this item was published.
The cancellations, which have been expected for some time, come as NBC News chief Andrew Lack moves to refashion the liberal cable channel as a straight-forward news and politics offering, at least in daytime. In September, MSNBC will add a 5 p.m. program hosted by “Meet The Press” moderator Chuck Todd, while Brian Williams, the former “Nightly News” anchor, will serve as the network’s breaking news and special reports anchor.
This move by MSNBC asks the age old question, If three TV shows are canceled that now one watched, did they ever exist in the first place?
As the Politicus USA opines, Ed Schultz won’t be the last liberal to be let go, it has been reported for months that Al Sharpton, Lawrence O’Donnell, and Chris Hayes are also on the way out. One can dare to dream. As stated earlier, they could all be shown the door and no one would notice. There are private website that get more traffic than MSNBC.
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?
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.
Donald Trump Doubles Down, Says He Does Not Owe Sen. John McCain an Apology for his War Hero Comment, “I Like People that Weren’t Captured”
DONALD TRUMP DOUBLES DOWN ON NO APOLOGY TO SEN. JOHN MCCAIN …
During an interview on ABC’s “This Week” this morning, host Martha Raddatz asked GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump whether he owed John McCain an apology for his comments over the weekend in Iowa when he questioned whether McCain was a war hero because he had been captured. Trump doubles down and said, “No, not at all.” Trump went on to say that reporter Sharyl Attkisson defended his comments after the media onslaught and establishment Republicans. Trump said to Raddatz, “When people attack me, I let them have it back,” he said. “People are constantly attacking my hair. I don’t see you coming to my defense.” No double standard there.
Isn’t it something that a RINO like McCain could be the undoing of the GOP? Get the facts correct everyone, McCain fired the first shot calling American citizens who went to Trump’s speech crazies. Where is his apology to them? Oh, but that is different, because the liberal media loves McCain and thinks it is perfectly OK in their bias reporting to call Republicans crazies.
Lets get things straight, does Trump owe McCain an apology, YES. Is John McCain a war hero, YES. However, that does not mean that some one can also not call him a dummy and make comments against him. His job as US Senator is completely different than his military service. That would be like saying that if you criticize a black president for his policies, you are a racist. Oh wait, that is what the MSM does do. GET THE POINT! And just because one has military service does not mean that an individual like John McCain has the right to call people who went to a Trump speech “crazies”. Of course Trump should apologize and just say that all who serve in the military honorably are heroes. Everyone should think that. All veterans are heroes, they have sacrificed their lives in defense of the United States. All Trump would have to say in an apology is that he believes all veterans who serve honorably, whether they came home, were POW’s or paid the ultimate sacrifice and lost their lives are heroes. However, whether you are a war hero or not does not give you the right to make fun of Americans and call them “crazies”. But of course the liberal MSM will never even discuss that and shame on FOX News for going along with the pack.
BREAKING: Trump tells ABC’s “This Week” in a phone interview that he doesn’t owe Senator McCain an apology for saying on-stage in Iowa yesterday that the former POW “is not a war hero … I like people that weren’t captured, OK?”
MARTHA RADDATZ: “Do you owe John McCain an apology?”
TRUMP: “No, not at all. … [V]ery importantly, I got a standing ovation, the biggest ovation they had all weekend, by far. When I left the room, it was a total standing ovation. It was wonderful to see. Nobody was insulted. … I’m very disappointed in John McCain because the vets are horribly treated in this country.” …
RADDATZ: “What did you mean you prefer those who aren’t captured?”
TRUMP: “I want to give them credit because, frankly, they don’t get the credit. John McCain gets credit. He was elected a senator, etc, etc, and we’ll give him all the credit.” …
RADDATZ: “Have you ever said anything you regret?”
TRUMP: “Yes, I have, on many occasions.”
RADDATZ: “So let me just get this clear. You are not apologizing. And you are certainly not pulling out of the race, as some of your opponents have suggested.”
A note to Donald Trump, apologize and move on. Your gripe is with a weasel like McCain,
