HMM, Look who is surging … TRUMPENTUM!
According to the most recent Public Policy Polling, Donald Trump is surging in the polls in North Carolina and leading the GOP pack. As per PPP, The Donald leads with 16% with Jeb Bush and Scott Walker at 12%, the Huck at 11% and 9% for Ben Caron and Marc Rubio. Love him are hate him, Trump knows PR. Also, when you get away from the PC crowd, Trump’s comment and message resonates with many Americans. They have just been told for so long that it is wrong to have that belief. One other thing, many Republicans and Independents are sick and tired of the GOP elite.
PPP’s newest North Carolina poll finds that Donald Trump’s momentum just keeps on building. He’s the top choice of Republican primary voters in the state, getting 16% to 12% for Jeb Bush and Scott Walker, 11% for Mike Huckabee, 9% for Ben Carson and Marco Rubio, 7% for Rand Paul, 6% for Ted Cruz, 5% for Chris Christie, 4% for Carly Fiorina, 2% for Rick Perry, 1% each for Lindsey Graham, Bobby Jindal, and Rick Santorum, and less than 1% each for John Kasich and George Pataki.
Trump’s favorability rating in North Carolina is 55/32, much higher than we were finding in national polls prior to his entry into the race. Trump’s really caught fire with voters on the far right- 66% of ‘very conservative’ voters see him favorably to only 24% with a negative view of him. Trump is polling particularly well with younger voters (29%) and men (20%).
Jeb Bush had been leading our previous few polls in North Carolina. But he continues to struggle with conservatives. Among ‘very conservative’ Republicans, only 37% see him favorably to 44% who have a negative opinion of him and only 7% of those voters support him for the nomination, putting him in 7th place in the GOP field. Bush’s overall 43/35 favorability is the second worst of any of the 10 candidates we measured that for, besting only Chris Christie’s 27/41 standing.
NBC Fires Donald Trump for Un-PC Comments on Illegal Immigration But Keeps News Anchor Lying Brian Williams
NBC TO DONALD TRUMP, YOU’RE FIRED … WELCOME TO LIBERAL INTOLERANCE AND THE MSM DOUBLE STANDARD.
Look what happens when you dare take a position that goes against the liberal MSM. NBC has cut ties with Donald Trump following the comments the Donald made over a week ago when he announced his candidacy for the president of the United States. NBC stated that the network will no longer air the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants that were part of a joint venture with Trump. NBC stated in a press release that, “At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.” Hmm, really? NBC has respect and dignity for all people, who knew? Unless you are a Conservative, member of the Tea Party, or anyone who dare disagree with the liberal agenda.
NBC is ending its business relationship with Donald Trump over his recent comments about Mexican immigrants.
“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values,” NBC said in a statement. “Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.”
The network will no longer air the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants that were part of a joint venture with Trump, the statement added. Its relationship with “Celebrity Apprentice” will continue, as Trump ceased his involvement with the reality show during his presidential bid.
The real estate mogul and 2016 presidential candidate has faced criticism for comments he made during his announcement speech earlier this month.
Donald Trump: NBC will stand behind ‘lying’ Brian Williams, but it won’t stand behind me
What about NBC’s values regarding telling the truth? I guess that is not high on their list or a cornerstone of their values. Isn’t it quite telling about NBC that they would fire Donald Trump for speaking his opinion, yet NBC kept news anchor, “lying” Brian William after it had been documented that he had lied too many times to keep track while reporting the news. But that is OK and keeping in line with NBC values. Because that showed dignity and respect. This is the same network that also employees Al Sharpton, who has made fabricated comments as well.
UNREAL … Univision TV Executive Compares Donald Trump to Racist Killer Dylann Roof (UPDATE: The Donald Responds)(Trump Sues Univision for Breaking Contract)
AND THESE ARE THE FOLKS THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO HOST A PRESIDENTIAL FORUM?
The President of Programming and Content at Univision compared GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump to racist murderer Dylann Roff today on Instagram. REALLY? Could you imagine what the outrage would be if Obama was compared to a murderer? It wasn’t long before the pics were taken down, but the damage had been done. How irresponsible could one be who claims to be in the media?
How do you say media bias in Spanish?
“I think he should be ashamed of himself. He deleted it. And the lawyers are going to have a field day. As you know they broke a contract… In my opinion a tremendous amount of pressure was put on, frankly by Mexico, by the leaders of Mexico put on Univision because they didn’t like what I was saying about trade… Frankly, a tremendous amount of people are coming in. We have some horrible people coming in, not just from Mexico but from all over. And they are killers and they are people we don’t want in this country… Everybody knows what I’m saying is true, Mexico knows what I’m saying is true.”
UPDATE I: Further attacks and backlash against The Donald … Chilean actor Cristian de la Fuente resigned as host of the Miss USA pageant, Calls Trump a Clown.
The Chilean actor who was slated to host the Miss USA pageant pulled out even before Univision pulled the plug, saying Donald Trump was “ignorant” and a “clown.”
Cristian de la Fuente, who stars in “Devious Maids,” went nuts on Trump for calling Mexicans drug dealers and rapists.
Cristian is not alone in his disdain. Roselyn Sanchez, his “Devious Maids” co-star, also pulled out and Univision officially pulled the plug Thursday morning.
Univision is the biggest Spanish-language broadcaster in the United States, so its decision is a blow to the Miss Universe Organization, a joint venture of Trump and Comcast’s NBCUniversal division.
Last week, in his speech announcing a run for president, Trump deplored immigrants from Mexico who “have lots of problems” and are “bringing those problems to us.”
“They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists,” he said, adding, “and some, I assume, are good people.”
UPDATE II: Trump Sues Univision.
Donald Trump intends to sue Univision for breach of contract and defamation after the media company announced it would renege on a five-year contract for broadcast rights to the Miss Universe and Miss USA pageants, his lawyer said Thursday.
The announcement comes hours after Trump told the On Media blog that Univision was defaulting on an “iron-clad” $13.5 million contract, which he said it had no right to terminate
Donald Trump Announces He is Running for President in 2016 … ‘Our Country Needs a Truly Great Leader’ (VIDEO)
THE DONALD IS IN …
Yesterday, Donald Trump entered the already crowded Republican field for the 2016 Presidential race.The Donald’s announcement was very different from many of the other GOP candidates looking to become the next President of the United States. Why you ask? Because he did not mince words and went after the failings of Barack Obama, Democrats and all establishment politicians, including those in the Republican party. Trump stated that he “will be the greatest jobs president that God has ever created,” as well as going after China and Mexico. Trump said, “I’ll bring back our jobs from China, from Mexico, from Japan, from so many places .?.?. and I’ll bring back our money.”
Donald Trump announced Tuesday that he’s running for president and vowed to be America’s Mr. Fix It — tackling unemployment, illegal immigration and terrorism.
“I will be the greatest jobs president that God has ever created,” the billionaire declared during a 45-minute red-meat speech at Trump Tower, his company’s Fifth Avenue headquarters.
DONALD TRUMP ANNOUNCEMENT
Like him or hate him, The Donald is a different breed of candidate. Obviously we see where the liberal MSM stands and many so-called establishment, conservative pundits. Trump has a couple of things going for him; one, he is a leader. Two, he is not afraid of reading from the non-PC script and three, he is not a politician who is beholden to special interests and calls the establishment out as idiots and rips them for their ridiculous, moronic policies. Some want to call Trump a non-serious candidate, calling him a clown. I will admit he is not my number one choice, but what he brings to the political conversation and resonates with the people is the mood of many Americans that they are sick and tired of politicians, Democrat and Republican alike, who just care about their own power and either could care less about America and its citizens or are just too stupid to know better and do anything good to make change.
TRUMP: Well, you need somebody, because politicians are all talk, no action. Nothing’s gonna get done. They will not bring us — believe me — to the promised land. They will not.
As an example, I’ve been on the circuit making speeches, and I hear my fellow Republicans. And they’re wonderful people. I like them. They all want me to support them. They don’t know how to bring it about. They come up to my office. I’m meeting with three of them in the next week. And they don’t know — “Are you running? Are you not running? Could we have your support? What do we do? How do we do it?”
I like them. And I hear their speeches. And they don’t talk jobs and they don’t talk China. When was the last time you heard China is killing us? They’re devaluing their currency to a level that you wouldn’t believe. It makes it impossible for our companies to compete, impossible. They’re killing us.
But you don’t hear that from anybody else. You don’t hear it from anybody else. And I watch the speeches.
Trump rips the establishment politicians for being in the pocket of lobbyists, donors, and by the special interests, rather then working for “We the People”.
TRUMP: So I’ve watched the politicians. I’ve dealt with them all my life. If you can’t make a good deal with a politician, then there’s something wrong with you. You’re certainly not very good. And that’s what we have representing us. They will never make America great again. They don’t even have a chance. They’re controlled fully — they’re controlled fully by the lobbyists, by the donors, and by the special interests, fully.
Yes, they control them. Hey, I have lobbyists. I have to tell you. I have lobbyists that can produce anything for me. They’re great. But you know what? it won’t happen. It won’t happen. Because we have to stop doing things for some people, but for this country, it’s destroying our country. We have to stop, and it has to stop now.
The Donald shreds the stupid politicians who are destroying America.
I’ll bring back our jobs from China, from Mexico, from Japan, from so many places. I’ll bring back our jobs, and I’ll bring back our money.
Right now, think of this: We owe China $1.3 trillion. We owe Japan more than that. So they come in, they take our jobs, they take our money, and then they loan us back the money, and we pay them in interest, and then the dollar goes up so their deal’s even better.
How stupid are our leaders? How stupid are these politicians to allow this to happen? How stupid are they?
- Democrats are going to have a field day, especially with Jeb Bush who just announced Monday. Tueday, “the Donald” threw his hat into the ring
Jeb Bush to make his 2016 presidential bid announcement today … Yawn.
Jeb Bush will make his formal announcement today, Monday June 15, 2015, to enter the 2016 crowded Republican Presidential field. I find it hard to believe that the GOP base will come out for Jeb as he has too many positions that do not follow the GOP platform. His positions on immigration and common core are 180 degrees opposite from the base and we do not need to be lectured that we are wrong. Sorry, he is in no way a conservative.
Jeb Bush, a scion of the most recognizable family in Republican politics who fashioned an image as a sober-minded conservative truth-teller while governor of Florida, is poised to run for president.
Bush will make his formal announcement Monday afternoon here in his adopted hometown during an appearance at Miami Dade College. His candidacy comes after a week-long European tour and months of intensive behind-the-scenes political maneuvering that erased long-standing doubts about his White House ambitions.
The launch will set John Ellis Bush, 62, the second son of former President George H.W. Bush and younger brother of former President George W. Bush, on a potentially historic course that would confirm his family’s standing as America’s pre-eminent political dynasty, rivaled only by the Kennedys in their fame and cross-generational power.
But for all his name recognition, Bush isn’t entering the race as a clear front-runner. A national CNN/ORC Poll released earlier this month found him virtually tied at the top of the field with Sen. Marco Rubio, a fellow Floridian. Behind them, 10% of those polled said they planned to support Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
When matched against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, Bush trails 51% to 43%.
Sorry, but the GOP does not need to nominate another RINO to fail in the general election. Also, the United States of America is a Republic, not a Monarchy. I held the same position for the Kennedy clan, who just assumed it was their birth right to hold office. I am certain that of the 325 million and counting people in the US, Republicans can find and nominate another individual with the last name of Bush. At least not now, it’s been far too soon since the presidency of GHWB and GWB. The same also holds true with Democrats, if they cannot find another candidate whose name is not Clinton, then they have a failed cabinet of talent. The US needs fresh talent and fresh ideas for the people, not establishment candidates of crony capitalism.
Dr. Ben Carson Is In … He Announced Today That He Will Run for 2016 President of the United States of America
DR. BEN CARSON SAYS HE IS IN THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL RACE …
We had all expected that Dr. Ben Carson would officially enter the presidential race next week in Detroit; however, he told local media today that he would run for the President of the United States. Carson shared his decision with WPEC-TV, the CBS affiliate in West Palm Beach, FL in an exclusive interview on Sunday.
Carson, 63, will formally jump into the race at an event in Detroit, where he grew up.
His presidential campaign will mark Carson’s first run for office, though he’s been a Tea Party hero since 2013 following his blistering attack of Obamacare at the National Prayer Breakfast in front of President Obama.
While he enters the race as a long shot to capture the GOP nomination, he currently polls ahead of several more established Republican contenders in Iowa, site of the first caucus, including former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum, the winner there in 2012.
The Republican field of candidates continues to widen.
Retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson is expected to make a major announcement at an event Monday in his hometown of Detroit.
But in an exclusive interview Sunday, Dr. Carson tells our National Correspondent Jeff Barnd he is in the race for the White House in 2016.
“I’m willing to be part of the equation and therefore, I’m announcing my candidacy for President of the United States of America.”
With that, Dr. Ben Carson is off and running. He rose from poverty in Detroit to the head of the pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. He’s now retired from medicine.
“Many people have suggested to me that I should run for president, even though I’m not a politician,” Carson said.
Dr. Carson’s political star rose at the National Prayer Breakfast two years ago when he admonished President Obama for several white house policies including Obamacare.
“I began to ask myself why are people clamoring for me to do this? I represented a lot of the same thoughts that they have,” Dr. Carson says. “I’m not 100% sure ‘politics as usual’ is going to save us. I think we are in a severe problem … a problematic situation.”
ABOVE THE LAW: Hillary Clinton’s Mystery Machine Scooby Van Illegally Parked in Handicap Parking Spot … But What Difference Does It Make?
ARE REAL AMERICANS ALLOWED TO PARK IN HANDICAPPED PARKING SPOTS WITHOUT HANDICAPPED STICKERS … IF HILLARY WAS A REPUBLICAN THE MSM WOULD BE ASKING … WHY DOES HILLARY CLINTON THINK SO LITTLE OF THE HANDICAPPED?
Add another black mark to the Hillary Clinton roll out of her 2016 presidential run. This time it was in Council Bluffs, Iowa where Hillary’s Scooby Doo van parked in a handicapped parking spot. Remember, the rules really don’t apply to Democrat politicians, especially Hillary Clinton. So this is how she shows she is one of us? Do any of you think that there would not be a ticket on your vehicle if you had done the same? That’s because you are not entitled and above the law. How about a comment from Team Hillary where they they are asked whether they think its OK to park in a handicap spot and why they think so little of the handicapped that they would illegally park in a spot?
Hillary Clinton’s now-famous Scooby Doo van made an appearance in Council Bluffs, Iowa on Thursday for a closed-door meeting with state Democratic Party officials – and it idled in a handicapped parking space from beginning to end.
Footage broadcast by KETV-7 in the nearby city of Omaha, Nebraska, showed the presidential nominee emerging from a cafe, greeting onlookers and walking past the blue handicapped-parking sign to climb into the vehicle.
IS THERE ANYTHING THAT HILLARY IS CAPABLE OF TELLING THE TRUTH ON …
Hillary Clinton has stepped in it once again, this time spinning a yarn about her Faux immigrant family. Hillary has been telling the story of her immigrant grandparents because one, it sounded good and was politically expedient for her and two, well it must be true because Hillary always thought of them as immigrants. UNREAL. This woman is simply incapable of telling the truth. You mean she never thought as she is running for the highest office in the land and has a severe credibility issue with voters thought to vet the story?
This is from the same person who said she was names after Sir Edmund Hillary, the man who climbed Mt. Everest. Eventually, Hillary was forced to admit that was not true either as Hillary Diane Rodham born on October 26, 1947 and Sir Edmund Hillary did not conquer Mt Everest until May 29, 1953. Even Kool-aid drinking sycophant liberals can do that math.
She’s Just Making it Up as she Goes …
Speaking in Iowa Wednesday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that all her grandparents had immigrated to the United States, a story that conflicts with public census and other records related to her maternal and paternal grandparents.
The story of her grandmother specifically immigrating is one Clinton has told before. Clinton’s sole foreign-born grandparent, Hugh Rodham Sr., immigrated as a child.
“Her grandparents always spoke about the immigrant experience and, as a result she has always thought of them as immigrants,” a Clinton spokesman told BuzzFeed News. “As has been correctly pointed out, while her grandfather was an immigrant, it appears that Hillary’s grandmother was born shortly after her parents and siblings arrived in the U.S. in the early 1880s.”
“All my grandparents, you know, came over here and you know my grandfather went to work in lace mill in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and worked there until he retired at 65. He started there when he was a teenager and just kept going,” Clinton said.
As PJ Media opines, “She has always thought of them as immigrants” — summing up the Clintons and the rest of the Mendacious Left in a nutshell. They feel something is true (mostly because it’s politically useful to them), ergo, it is true.
Maybe the real records of Hillary Clinton’s genealogy tree was saved on her private server that she scrubbed? When one cannot tell the truth on the simple things in life, imagine what type of liar they would be with the big things?
Marco Rubio Announces He is Running For President in 2016 … “I Can Lead This Country” … Calls Hillary Clinton “a Leader from Yesterday” … Yesterday is Over and we Are Never Going Back”
MARCO RUBIO IS IN …
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) made it official, in a speech at Miami’s Freedom Tower, Marco Rubio announced his 2016 presidential run. Rubio stressed a fresh approach to the future, telling supporters that “yesterday is over and we’re never going back.” The 43 year old Republican Florida Senator is all in and he has quite the story of only in America to tell We the People. As the son of poor Cuban immigrants, Marco Rubio spoke of The American Dream.
Both of my parents were born to poor families in Cuba. After his mother died when he was nine, my father left school to go work. My mother was one of seven girls raised by a disabled father who struggled to provide for his family.
When they were young, my parents had big dreams for themselves. But because they were not born into wealth or power, their future was destined to be defined by their past. So in 1956 they came here, to the one place on earth where the aspirations of people like them could be more than just dreams.
My father became a bartender. My mother a cashier, a maid and a Kmart stock clerk. They never made it big. But they were successful. Two immigrants with little money or education found stable jobs, owned a home, retired with security and gave all four of their children a life far better than their own.
My parents achieved what came to be known as the American Dream. But now, too many Americans are starting to doubt whether achieving that dream is still possible:
Notice how you never hear Rubio or his supporters say that a reason to vote for him is to be the first Hispanic president or the first Cuban-American one? It’s about the dream, the American dream that he wants every American to have and to pay back America for all that he has received.
More from Marco Rubio’s speech and his views for the future, not living or governing in the past.
Because while our people and economy are pushing the boundaries of the 21st century, too many of our leaders and their ideas are stuck in the twentieth century.
They are busy looking backward, so they do not see how jobs and prosperity today depend on our ability to compete in a global economy. So our leaders put us at a disadvantage by taxing, borrowing and regulating like it’s 1999.
They look for solutions in yesterday, so they don’t see that good-paying modern jobs require different skills and more education than the past. They blindly support an outdated higher education system that is too expensive and inaccessible to those who need it most.
And they have forgotten that when America fails to lead, global chaos inevitably follows, so they appease our enemies, betray our allies and weaken our military.[...]
Just yesterday, a leader from yesterday began a campaign for President by promising to take us back to yesterday.
But yesterday is over, and we are never going back. We Americans are proud of our history, but our country has always been about the future. Before us now is the opportunity to author the greatest chapter yet in the amazing story of America.
We can’t do that by going back to the leaders and ideas of the past. We must change the decisions we are making by changing the people who are making them.
That is why today, grounded by the lessons of our history, and inspired by the promise of our future, I announce my candidacy for President of the United States of America.
But can Marco Rubio win, he better because he is not running for both Senate and the President? If he loses, he is out of politics. Although I have to believe that if he does not get the GOP nomination, he would be on the short list for VP.
Marco Rubio’s full presidential announcement speech can be seen below.
Fantastic Presidential Announcement by Rubio
