Listen to Donald Trump’s First Radio Ads of 2016 Presidential Campaign … “Politicians are all talk and no action.”
THE DONALD RELEASES HIS FIRST TWO RADIO ADS … WE ARE GOING TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!
That is kind of unbelievable if you think about it, this is his first radio ads? Check out the two ads below. If there is anyone who knows marketing and how to get an effective message out to the American people, it id Donald Trump. In an age in which We the People are sick and tired of establishment candidates who are beholden to special interests and lobbyists, and both political parties are just as guilty, along comes Trump riding the wave of an “outside the Beltway” candidate … “Donald Trump is running for president because politicians are all talk and no action.”
The Donald also hits on the hot button issues of jobs, the economy, veterans, the First and Second Amendment, ISIS and illegal immigration … “You can’t have a country without borders.”
Republican presidential contender Donald Trump is releasing his first radio ads of the 2016 campaign.
“Donald Trump is running for president because politicians are all talk and no action,” a woman’s voice reads in an ad first played this morning on “Morning Joe” on MSNBC.
The voice adds that Trump will “brutally and quickly cut off the head of ISIS” and “stop illegal immigration by building a wall on our southern border. And he will make Mexico pay for it.”
A second ad, targeted at voters in Iowa, features Trump’s voice. “My opponents have no experience in creating jobs or making deals,” he says. “Obamacare is a total disaster. It will be repealed and replaced with something much better,” he continues.
“If the people of Iowa vote for me, you’ll never be disappointed,” he adds.
UP IN SMOKE … Legalize Marijuana for Both Medical & Recreational use in Ohio Fails Miserably 65% to 35%
UP IN SMOKE, IT TURNS OUT THAT OHIO IS NOT GOING TO POT AFTER ALL …
Imagine that, Ohio is not Colorado. The voters of Ohio decided to say JUST SAY NO to a the legalization of marijuana for both medical and recreational use by a resounding 65% to 35%. Although, many probably voted against this terrible measure not only because of pot legalization but also they way it was written giving a monopoly to certain individuals to grow it. C’mon man, the last thing some stoners are going to want is being forced to by some weed from some politically connected wealthy backers. Next thing you know these privileges state appointed drug kingpins would have the market on the Doritos and moon pies.
Looks like Cheech & Chong will have to toke elsewhere (warning – adult language)
Issue 3, the effort to legalize marijuana for both medical and recreational use in Ohio, failed to create a buzz with voters Tuesday.
The legislation was rejected soundly, failing by a margin of 65 to 35 percent with 77 percent of precincts counted late Tuesday night.
Ohio voters on Tuesday rejected a controversial marijuana legalization measure at the polls in that state. Recent surveys showed support in Ohio for marijuana legalization, but voters balked at the specifics of the ballot initiative, which would have created an oligopoly on marijuana production for a small handful of the initiative’s wealthy donors.
The initiative faced an uphill battle from the start. The first stumbling block was the nature of the ballot measure itself. It would have essentially written a marijuana oligopoly into the state’s constitution, with the measure’s wealthy backers as the only recipients of licenses to grow marijuana commercially. That didn’t sit right with many of the national advocacy groups that have backed successful legalization measures in other states.
NBC/WSJ Poll: Donald Trump & Ben Carson Lead GOP Race … Hillary Clinton Loses Ground to Bernie Sanders
THE GOP OUTSIDERS LEAD THE PRESIDENTIAL POLLS …
A new NBC/WSJ poll has some interesting trends on both sides of the aisle. On the Republican side, 3 of the 4 leaders of the pack are political outsiders. The poll has Donald Trump at number one with 21%, Ben Carson a close second with 20% and Carly Fiorino and Sen. Marco Rubio with 11%. So why has Ben Carson closed the gap on The Donald? Could it possibly be as opined by Pamela Gellar that, “the emperor has no clothes, and Carson was the only one brave enough to say it, to violate the sharia (‘do not criticize Islam’).” Of course it was Donald Trump who brought the issue of illegals to the political conversation. For some reason establishment candidates have an issue in discussing and taking a stand on the issues that matter to “We the People”.
With the Democrats, scandal plagued Hillary Clinton still leads socialist Bernie Sanders, bit only by a 7% with yet to announce Joe Biden in the race. As Clinton poll numbers tank, she was forced to take to the Sunday talk shows and try to tell the American people that she has been transparent. LOL!!! However, if and when Biden ever does announce his presidential run, the Democrat polls will completely have a shake up with most likely Biden being on top. Imagine that, crazy uncle Joe Biden is the savior of the party.
Donald Trump and Ben Carson are running neck and neck in the national Republican presidential horserace, while Carly Fiorina is now tied for third place with Marco Rubio, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.
And on the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton has lost ground to Bernie Sanders — she leads him by just seven points with Joe Biden in the race, and 15 points without the vice president. That’s down from Clinton’s 34-point lead over Sanders in July and her whopping 60-point lead in June.
In the GOP race, Trump is the first choice of 21 percent of Republican primary voters — followed by Carson at 20 percent and Rubio and Fiorina tied at 11 percent each.

Marco Rubio Announces John Boehner’s Resignation At Values Voters Summit To Endless Standing Ovation
CHECK OUT THE STANDING OVATION WHEN IT WAS ANNOUNCED THAT SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE JOHN BOEHNER WAS RESIGNING.
It would appear that I wasn’t the only one cheering this morning when I heard the news … During this mornings Values Voter Summit in Washington, DC Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) during his speech announced Speaker John Boehner was resigning from the House and the Conservatives in the crowd cheered with an endless standing ovation. The cheers that Boehner was stepping down were well earned as Boehner departs as least-popular speaker in three decades.
Rubio followed up the applause that Boehner was stepping down with the comment, “With all due respect to people who serve in government, it is important at this moment, with respect to him and the service he has provided to our country, it’s not about him, and I’m not here today to bash anyone, but the time has come to turn the page. The time has come to turn the page and allow a new generation of leadership in this country.” I can only hope the other establishment GOP House types understand this as none of us want you to take over the role of the Speaker. That means you Rep. Kevin McCarthy. The GOP party need a fresh start in both the House and the Senate. Those in leadership roles have done nothing and all need to go.
At the 36 second mark of the video is the money line, Speaker Boehner announced he will be resigning …
Conservative voters roared in a standing ovation Friday at the Values Voter Summit in Washington after Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) announced Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) plans to retire. Rubio, who is running for president, shared the news that broke just before his speech, working it into prepared remarks where he questioned why a Republican Congress isn’t “able to stop our country from sliding in the wrong direction.” “Just a few minutes ago, Speaker Boehner announced that he will be resigning,” Rubio said to thunderous applause. He told the crowd it is time for Republicans to “turn the page.” “With all due respect to people who serve in government — it is important at this moment, with respect to him and the service he has provided to our country — it’s not about him, and I’m not here today to bash anyone, but the time has come to turn the page.”

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.”
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker drops out of GOP residential run …
Another governor has dropped out of the GOP presidential primary race. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has ended his bid for the 2016 GOP residential run. Gov. Walker was originally thought to be a sure fire strong candidate for the Republican party. Boy were the pundits wrong on that one. Then again, the political pundits have been pretty much wrong on everything this political cycle. As stated at the Washington Free Beacon, the Walker campaign finally ended in the culmination of a stunning downfall from frontrunner to an also-ran in the crowded GOP field.
In a press conference Walker had some party words, “Today I believe that I am being called to lead by helping to clear the field in this race so that a positive, conservative message can rise to the top of the field. With this in mind, I will suspend my campaign immediately.” Walker then had a parting shot at Donald Trump, “I encourage other Republican presidential candidates to consider doing the same, so that the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front-runner.” Hmm, that is rather sour grapes.
Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, whose early glow as a Republican presidential contender was snuffed out with the rise of anti-establishment rivals, announced Monday that he was quitting the race and urged some of his 15 rivals to do the same so the party could unite against the leading candidate, Donald J. Trump.
Mr. Walker’s pointed rebuke of Mr. Trump gave powerful voice to the private fears of many Republicans that the party risked alienating large parts of the electorate — Hispanics, women, immigrants, veterans, and most recently, Muslims — if Mr. Trump continued vilifying or mocking them as part of his overtures to angry and disaffected voters.
Still, Mr. Walker’s exit was not a selfless sacrifice: He was running low on campaign cash, sliding sharply in opinion polls, losing potential donors to rivals and unnerving supporters with a stream of gaffes, like saying he would consider building a wall along the Canadian border.
Appearing ashen and drained at a brief news conference late Monday in Madison, Mr. Walker said the Republican presidential field was too focused on “how bad things are” rather than on “how we can make them better for everyone.” Without naming Mr. Trump, Mr. Walker issued a plea to fellow candidates to coalesce around a different Republican who could offer a more “optimistic” vision and guide the party to a victory next year that, he admitted with sadness in his voice, he could not achieve himself.
With Walker’s snide comments made toward Donald Trump in making the comment that, “I encourage other Republican presidential candidates to consider doing the same, so that the voters can focus on a limited number of candidates who can offer a positive, conservative alternative to the current front-runner,” does that mean if Donald Trump ever does win by chance the GOP presidential nominee, will Walker endorse him as Trump was made to pledge?
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.
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.
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.
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.
