CONSERVATIVE RADIO HOST MARK LEVIN SAYS HE’S VOTING FOR DONALD TRUMP …
Conservative Radio Host Mark Levin, who has been very critical of Donald Trump and who supported and endorsed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in the GOP primaries said yesterday on his radio show that he is “voting for Donald Trump.” In the end, what could he really do? The never-Trumpers would put Hillary in the White House and Levin could hardly want that inflicted upon the United States. As being a person who supported Ted Cruz myself, one has to look at the lesser of two evils and there is only one true candidate in this presidential election that I think is harmful to America. Personally, Hillary Clinton should be in leg-irons for the records and espionage act crime she has committed. Like Mark Levin, Donald Trump was not my first choice; however, Hillary Clinton is no choice.
Maybe this olive branch from Levin will get the conservatives on board to defeat Hillary.
MARK LEVIN: I think this is a binary election — at least for the country — that either Trump or Clinton will be president of the United States. I happen to think despite the CNN poll and so forth there is a lot of work to do to make up ground, particularly in battleground states. But Hillary is so awful I just don’t know. I’m not in the prediction business so it doesn’t matter.
So I’m going to vote for Donald Trump. I’m going to wind up voting for Donald Trump on election day. I take no responsibility for the dumb things he says or the dumb things his surrogates say. Just as I took no responsibility for the dumb things any candidate I vote for says whether it’s Congress, Senate, Supervisor, states attorney, other presidential candidates. I don’t control any of these people. I don’t run their campaigns and I don’t advise them. (The Mark Levin Show, September 6, 2016)
This morning Donald Trump officially announced Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his VP for the 2016 GOP Presidential ticket. Trump described Pence as ‘a man of honor, character and honesty’. Trump heaps praise on Mike Pence and his character and honesty in contrast with lying, crooked Hillary. We shall see if this pick helps bring the Republican party together. Probably not a bad choice by Trump with all things considered.
Billionaire Donald Trump praised his newly minted running mate Mike Pence as ‘a man of honor, character and honesty’ on Saturday, using their official coming-out party as a platform to contrast the Indiana governor with his November opponent Hillary Clinton.
‘Hillary Clinton is the embodiment of corruption. She’s a corrupt person,’ he said.
When Pence spoke nearly a half-hour later, saying he was ‘deeply humbled,’ he drew a standing ovation for a line he uttered Tuesday, during the pair’s only other joint public appearance: ‘Hillary Clinton must never become President of the United States of America.’
The 57-year-old Indianan lauded Trump, ‘this builder, this fighter, this patriotic American who has set aside a legendary career in business to build a stronger America.’
Of course NBC has to try and divide the ticket before the ink was dry on the GOP 2016 presidential logo. One would think its more of a bold move to choose some one with a different set of opinions rather than a “yes” man or woman. But when you are the MSM, you try and cause hate and division of the GOP at all cost.
Donald Trump’s newly-named running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, has shored up discrepancies over his contrasting stances with Trump on several key policies, including past U.S. trade deals, the Muslim ban and the proposal to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
“You know, you shut the door, you tell the boss exactly what you think,” Pence said on Fox News when asked by host Sean Hannity how he’d work through disagreements with Trump.
“But when the door opens, the job of the vice president is to stand right next to the president and implement the policy that he’s decided. And I’m prepared to do that.”
THIS CAN’T NE A GOOD THING … Clarence Thomas may be next to leave SCOTUS.
Maybe the reporting that Conservative Constitutionalist Justice Clarence Thomas might be the next to step down from the SCOTUS will make GOP jackasses that are hell bent on going against Trump and all but ensuring a Hillary Clinton victory will wake the hell up. Elections have consequences and the next president of the United States looks like they will be choosing 3 justices.
Justice Clarence Thomas, a reliable conservative vote on the Supreme Court, is mulling retirement after the presidential election, according to court watchers.
Thomas, appointed by former President George H.W. Bush and approved by the Senate after a bitter confirmation, has been considering retirement for a while and never planned to stay until he died, they said. He likes to spend summers in his RV with his wife.
His retirement would have a substantial impact on control of the court. The next president is expected to immediately replace the seat opened by the death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, providing a one-vote edge in the court that is currently divided 4-4.
Should Thomas leave, that slight majority would continue if Donald Trump becomes president. If it’s Hillary Clinton, then she would get the chance to flip two Republican seats, giving the liberals a 6-3 majority.
However, as per The Right Scoop, his wife has denied this on Facebook.
Former Establishment Republican Speaker John Boehner Calls Ted Cruz ‘Lucifer in the Flesh’ & a ‘Miserable Son of a Bitch’
JOHN BOEHNER IS THE EPITOME OF THE COUNTRY CLUB ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICAN WHO WE COULDN’T WAIT TO LEAVE OFFICE …
Hey Boehner, have another drink and a cry. Former Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner called Sen. Ted Cruz ‘Lucifer in the flesh’ and further went on to say Cruz was a ‘miserable son of a bitch’. Hmm, coming from the likes of Boehner, Cruz should wear these words with a badge of honor. Sorry America and especially my fellow Conservatives, I find Boehner and his crying pathetic self exactly what is wrong with the GOP. Boehner is the epitome of the country club establishment Republican who forgot along time ago what the GOP party platform stood for and that government was of, by and for the people.
I find it quite interesting that the poster child who Conservatives danced with glee when Boehner left office and is the face of the establishment GOP is actually “golfing and texting buddies” with Donald Trump. Flashback, the Gateway Pundit reported one last cry from Boehner. That should give many pause for concern. Many have stated that they are supporting Trump because he is a political outsider, really? Who do you think was buying politician’s influence? When Conservatives were battling Pelosi, Reid and Obama, Trump was donating to them. So Boehner, who openly hated the Conservative movement, condemns Cruz and loves Trump. WAKE THE HELL UP CONSERVATIVES, ADMIT YOU MADE A MISTAKE AND DO THE RIGHT THING.
So, Mr. Speaker, how do you really feel?
John Boehner, the famously blunt ex-House speaker, left no doubt he’s not a fan of fellow Republican Ted Cruz, leaping off the sidelines of the presidential race Wednesday night to unleash a stunning verbal lashing of the Texas senator, reportedly calling him “Lucifer in the flesh” and a “miserable son of a bitch.”
The longtime Ohio powerhouse had not been very outspoken on the race since retiring last year, but he held little back when asked about the Texas senator and underdog GOP presidential candidate during a forum at Stanford University.
“I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life,” he said, according to The Stanford Daily.
He reportedly said he’s played golf with front-runner Donald Trump, describing them as “texting buddies,” and said his relationship with Ohio Gov. John Kasich “requires more effort” but they’re friends “and I love him.” He also said he’d vote for Trump in a general election – but not Cruz.
And yet another GOP insider and Republican who should be ashamed of himself, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) stated, “I fully agree with John Boehner, and maybe it gives Lucifer a bad name by comparing him to Ted Cruz.” King accused Cruz of having “perpetrated a fraud and a hoax” with his push in 2013 to defund ObamaCare, which eventually led a government shutdown. Really, it was a fraud and hoax to try and to defund Obamacare? This was the very reason why Republicans were voted in majorities in the House and the Senate to do just that. Defunding and abolishing Obamacare is what the GOP ran on in 2010, 2012 and 2014 to do. And because the establishment Republicans did not do what they claimed they were going to do, in other words, lied to the very people who voted them into office, they establishment GOP finds itself with Donald Trump as their presumptive presidential nominee.
Hmm, it seems like all do not agree with Boehner and King, some Satanists are furious that Boehner compared Ted Cruz to the Dark Lord. Good grief.
