THIS POLL SHOULD NOT SURPRISE ANYONE AFTER RUBIO’S TERRIBLE DEBATE PERFORMANCE ...
As reported by the Politico, a poll conducted by the Pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC shows Marco Rubio falling after his disastrous debate performance. Donald Trump still has a commanding first place lead; however, is a mad scramble. With just one day left before the New Hampshire primaries, it should be interesting how this plays out. This may just turn out to be the RINO primary.
An internal poll conducted on Sunday suggests that Marco Rubio’s fumbled debate performance has damaged his prospects heading into the New Hampshire primary.
The poll, conducted by the pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC, shows Rubio plummeting to fourth place in the primary here, with 10 percent of the vote. Most of the polling conducted in the immediate days before the debate showed Rubio in second place.
The survey, which was based on phone calls to 500 likely voters (margin of error plus or minus 3 percent), was conducted Sunday, the day following the latest Republican debate. Rubio came under scathing attack from Chris Christie, who cast the first term Florida senator as too unready, ambitious, and superficial to occupy the Oval Office.
Donald Trump holds a wide lead in the survey, receiving 35 percent. He more than doubles runner-up Kasich, who has 15 percent. In third is Jeb Bush, with 13 percent. Behind Rubio in fifth and sixth place, respectively, are Christie and Ted Cruz. Both receive 8 percent.
Although, why any one would vote for Kasich is puzzling.
SARAH PALIN GIVES DONALD TRUMP A RINGING ENDORSEMENT AHEAD OF THE IOWA CAUCUSES …
Last night former Alaska governor and 2008 VP running mate Sarah Palin gave Donald Trump her endorsement for the 2016 GOP presidential race. It was not just a plain old one, it was quite a ringing endorsement. This was a little surprising, but maybe it is not as this 2016 political season has been one like no other in recent times. I understand Republicans want to win back the White House, but for me these days, its no longer a T or D thing, its a conservative thing. I have seen too many Republicans disappoint me. Obviously, Donald Trump has tapped into the political outsider thing. Which is what has caused the momentum and his front-runner status. Now he is tapping into that same energy that Palin attracted years ago. During her endorsement speech she stated, “Well, I am here because like you I know that it is now or never. I’m in it to win it because we believe in America, and we love our freedom. And if you love your freedom, thank a vet. Thank a vet, and know that the United States military deserves a commander-in-chief that our country passionately, and will never apologize for this country. A new commander-in-chief who will never leave our men behind. A new commander-in-chief, one who will never lie to the families of the fallen.”
Full Sarah Palin speech
Today Donald J. Trump received the coveted and influential endorsement of former Vice Presidential Candidate and Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin. Palin praised Trump’s leadership and unparalleled ability to speak the truth and produce real results. A trusted conservative, Palin has a proven record of being fiscally modest, staunchly pro-life and believes in small government that allows businesses to grow and freedom to prosper. Gov. Palin joined Mr. Trump in Ames on Tuesday, just two weeks before the Iowa Caucuses, to announce her endorsement of the GOP frontrunner.
Mr. Trump stated, “I am greatly honored to receive Sarah’s endorsement. She is a friend, and a high quality person whom I have great respect for. I am proud to have her support.”
However, I am a bit taken aback, much like William Teach from The Right Wing News. Trump has some conservative qualities, positions and he speaks his mind; however, he is no Conservative. Just remember that folks. I just hope this ends well. I hope!!!
Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice-presidential nominee who became a Tea Party sensation and a favorite of grass-roots conservatives, endorsed Donald J. Trump in Iowa on Tuesday, providing him with a potentially significant boost just 13 days before the state’s caucuses.
“Are you ready for the leader to make America great again?” Mrs. Palin said with Mr. Trump by her side at a rally at Iowa State University. “Are you ready to stump for Trump? I’m here to support the next president of the United States — Donald Trump.”
Her support is the highest-profile backing for a Republican so far. It came the same day that Iowa’s Republican governor, Terry Branstad, said he hoped that Senator Ted Cruz would be defeated in Iowa. The Feb. 1 caucuses are a must-win for the Texas senator, who is running neck-and-neck with Mr. Trump in state polls.
The endorsement came as Mr. Trump was bearing down in the state, holding multiple campaign events and raising expectations about his performance in the nation’s first nominating contest.
As Mrs. Palin announced her backing, Mr. Trump stood wearing a satisfied smile as she scolded mainstream Republicans as sellouts and praised how Mr. Trump had shaken up the party. “He’s been going rogue left and right,” Mrs. Palin said of Mr. Trump, using one of her signature phrases. “That’s why he’s doing so well. He’s been able to tear the veil off this idea of the system.”
It is not clear that Mrs. Palin’s blessing will have a major impact on Mr. Trump’s long-term prospects. But in Iowa, where Mrs. Palin spent years developing a network of supporters, it could be helpful. Mr. Trump has faced questions about whether his campaign’s organizing muscle can draw the voters to match his poll numbers come caucus night.
One thing I do not want to hear from Donald Trump or the Palin’s when it comes to Ted Cruz and that is that he is some kind of bad and hated man. That’s BS. To be honest, prior to Trumps presidential run for the GOP many who know support him thought he was a blow hard billionaire. Check out via Weasel Zippers how Ted Cruz reacted with class to Palins endorsement of Trump. Cut the nonsense Trump, and stop it right now. Cruz is actually a conservative, you are not.
Conservative Talk Show host Mark Levin is 100% correct regarding the phony political Conservative Republicans and those who defend them.
Take a good listen to Mark Levin via The Right Scoop. Levin calls it like it is as We the People get screwed by the GOP leadership as they sell us down the river and continually lie to our faces. I have to wonder at this point, what does the Republican party stand for anymore? We could get this type of government from Nancy Pelosi, as Boehner cut a deal with the White House on a budget deal by completely circumventing the political process.
I am sick and tired of pretend Conservatives defending John Boehner and Mitch McConnell when they are selling this country down the river. And that is exactly what they do. What does the republican party stand for?
This is a must listen for people who want to know the truth.
Speaker Boehner, a GOP Judas to the End … “Obama Wins on Budget Deal as John Boehner Cleans Out the Barn.”
ONCE AGAIN JOHN BOEHNER SHOWS WHY HE WAS TOSSED OUT AS SPEAKER AS HE COUNTS ON DEMOCRATS TO PASS BUDGET DEAL, NOT REPUBLICANS.
If you ever wonder why Republican Speaker of the House was forced to resign once needs to look no further than the most recent budget deal that Boehner secretly negotiated with Obama, outside the process. Once again, Obama took this crying fool Boehner to the cleaners as Boehner manages one last parting shot to GOP Conservatives. It is a budget bill that will be voted on in the House and is expected to pass, not with a GOP majority, but Democrat. It kind of makes you wonder exactly whose side Boehner is really on? As I said when I called and email my Congressman, if you vote for this bill or if it passes, what is the point of having a GOP majority in the House and if or when this does pass, you have lost my vote and you do not deserve to have the majority. We could get this kind of crap with Nancy Pelsosi as Speaker. Powerline points out just how pathetic and bad this spending bill truly is.
The budget agreement struck late Monday between the White House and Congress hands President Obama a clear victory, vindicating his hard line this year against spending limits that he argued were a drag on the economy and buying him freedom for the final 14 months of his term from the fiscal dysfunction that has plagued his presidency.
The deal is the policy equivalent of keeping the lights on — hardly the stuff of a bold fiscal legacy. But it achieves the main objective of his 2016 budget: to break free of the spending shackles he agreed to when he signed the Budget Control Act of 2011, an outcome, the president allowed Tuesday, that he could be “pretty happy” about.
For this fiscal year alone, the deal would add $50 billion in spending, divided equally between defense and domestic programs, as well as $16 billion for emergency war spending, half for the military, half for the State Department. Together, that represents an increase of $66 billion above the spending limits for 2016, not far off the $70 billion increase Mr. Obama requested.
From the moment he introduced his budget Feb. 2, Mr. Obama held firm on his demand that Congress break through the punishing across-the-board cuts known as sequestration in the Budget Control Act to provide equal increases to domestic and military spending. He promised to veto any spending bill that adhered to the statutory spending caps, made good on that threat this month by vetoing a popular defense policy bill, enlisted the support of congressional Democrats with whom his White House had sometimes sparred on budget matters, and capitalized on Republican divisions to get his way.
The result was a deal that would raise spending $80 billion, or about 1 percent, over the next two years while enacting an array of cuts that Democrats found palatable. The deal also would suspend the statutory debt limit — on track to be breached on Tuesday without action from Congress — until March 2017, beyond his presidency. It also contains a provision Ms. Pelosi had pressed for to avert large Medicare premium increases for some beneficiaries.
The budget deal faces last-minute protest by Republicans, but in the end it will probably make no difference because it is the Democrats that are going to supply the necessary vote to pass this Boehner bill. Cry me a river you Judas, Boehner cannot leave office fast enough. This SOB sold out his party, his principles and the People.
House Republicans are facing a last-minute uprising against Speaker John Boehner’s budget deal, as dozens of GOP lawmakers are telling leadership they might vote against the package because of changes to crop insurance programs, and other concerns.
Senior GOP lawmakers estimate that between 60 and 120 Republicans will vote for the package as is, leaving Democrats to supply the vast majority of votes, though the vote count is fluid at this time. Aides in both parties expect the bill to pass, but the number of GOP defections is a notable rebuke to Boehner and other top Republicans.
THE FACE THE NATION JUST SHOWS EXACTLY WHY JOHN BOEHNER WAS A TERRIBLE GOP SPEAKER …
Can this gutless, crying wonder leave sooner rather than later? This cowardly lion decided to take parting shots at the very people who put him in the majority. This ass actually had the audacity to take shots on the GOP and Conservatives during the interview calling them “false prophets”. In his first interview since his resignation announcement, Speaker John Boehner blasted right-wing lawmakers and groups as “false prophets” who “whip people into a frenzy” to make legislative demands that “are never going to happen.” REALLY? It was YOU and your GOP establishment who said you were going to stop the Obama/Reid Pelosi agenda if given the House back. So that makes you nothing more than a LIAR!!!
In his first interview since his surprising announcement Friday that he is both resigning his role as Speaker of the House and his congressional seat at the end of October, John Boehner “unloads on GOP ‘false prophets’” on Face the Nation.
In his first one-on-one interview since his resignation announcement, Speaker John Boehner blasted right-wing lawmakers and groups as “false prophets” who “whip people into a frenzy” to make legislative demands that “are never going to happen.”
The Ohio Republican also declared on CBS’ Face the Nation Sunday that there won’t be a government shutdown this week, though he’s “sure” it will take Democratic votes to pass a temporary funding extension.
“The Bible says, beware of false prophets. And there are people out there spreading, you know, noise about how much can get done,” Boehner said.
“We got groups here in town, members of the House and Senate here in town, who whip people into a frenzy believing they can accomplish things they know — they know! — are never going to happen,” he added.
Charles Payne sees this as a direct jab at the TEA Party:
“The Bible says beware of false prophets. There are people out there spreading noise about how much can get done” Boehner rips Tea Party

Donald Trump Fires Back at Jeb Bush: He Should Lead by Example ‘Speaking English’ While in the United States
TRUMP TELLS JEB BUSH TO SPEAK ENGLISH IN THE UNITED STATES …
Donald Trump is tapping into the, this is still America theme, going after Jeb Bush and ripping him a new one as he questioned by Bush would feel the need to speak in Spanish rather than English. Donald Trump said in an interview with Breitbart, “I like Jeb, He is a nice man. But he should really set the example by speaking to reporters in Spanish do anything but to further that feeling? king English while in the United States.” It is just another example of as Hot Air opines, of Jeb Bush losing the primary to win the general election. Many conservatives believe Jeb to be a pro-amnesty sellout, how does speaking to reporters in Spanish do anything but to further that belief? But this is Jeb’s way of pandering to the Latino vote. Really Jeb, how about you try if anything pandering to the base of your party?
Trump had harsh words for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) in this interview as well and lit into the donor class, all while saying that the “silent majority” in America is waking up and fighting to take back the country from the political class.
Trump also predicted that he will not only win the White House in 2016, but that he will be re-elected in 2020–predicting he will be a two-term president–and that at the end of his eventual eight years in the White House he will be known to all as a “great conservative” just like Ronald Reagan.
“I like Jeb,” Trump said. “He’s a nice man. But he should really set the example by speaking English while in the United States.”
“El hombre no es conservador,” Bush said in Spanish of Trump in Miami, according to the Tampa Bay Times. That means, according to that newspaper, that Bush is saying of Trump: “The man is not conservative.”
“Besides, he tries to personalize everything. If you’re not totally in agreement with him you’re an idiot, or stupid, or don’t have energy, or blah blah blah,” Bush continued in English, according to the Times.
Trump, in his exclusive with Breitbart News, ripped that argument—that somehow he’s not a conservative.
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.
Conservative Talk Show Host Laura Ingraham Says Jeb Bush “Will Lose” to Hillary Clinton if He’s the GOP Presidential Nominee for 2016
Laura Ingraham to Jeb Bush SHUT UP AND
SING GO AWAY …
From The Hill, Laura Ingraham says if the GOP nominates former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush as their 2016 presidential nominee, he will lose. YES HE WILL. Laura Ingraham is 100% correct. If the GOP establishment and their “Chamber of Commerce faux-conservative” or as we like to refer to it as “Chamber of Crony Capitalism” we will have another liberal in office as president destroying America. At some point the GOP had best do what the base wants, or suffer the consequences. Eventually, the the Republican establishment continues to not follow the GOP platform, they may just find themselves losing their base forever.
Check out Laura Ingraham at 2015 CPAC Rips Jeb Bush
Ingraham, who’s long ragged on Bush for his positions on immigration reform, said he couldn’t beat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Democratic front-runner, because of his “Chamber of Commerce faux-conservative” views on her radio show Thursday morning.
“I think a populist pitch is a winner across the country — in Hispanic, white, black communities, I’m telling you it is a winner. We can peel off some minority voters, focus on their wages, their renewal. I’m telling you, it’s a winner,” she said. “Not this old Chamber of Commerce faux-conservative big business message. That is a crony capitalist disaster. And I’m sorry, but that’s what the Bush folks represent and that’s what the Bush nomination will do. It will lose.”
AMERICANS NAME GOVERNMENT THE #1 PROBLEM FACING THE UNITED STATES …
Americans are fed up with the increasing and oppressive government. In a recent Gallup poll, Americans named the government as the biggest problem facing the United States. For the past 4 months, the government has been named the biggest problem facing “We the People”. They are correct. Even with such issues as terrorism, healthcare, race relations and immigration are extremely important problems facing Americans, the government, the economy and unemployment have been at the top of the list for the past year. In the end, it is our lawless government that refuses to follow the US Constitution, our government that fails to adequately deal with border security, our government that makes the Middle East worse, our government that continually regulates us in a way that our Founding Fathers never intended and our government that spies on us and treats law-abiding, legal US citizens as a greater threat than terrorists.
Americans have grown weary of a government that could care less about the people and only about their power. Every day we are witness to a Democrat president who shreds the Constitution and a gutless Republican Congress who is too cowardice to defend it.
The government is America’s most important problem, according to a new poll.
In a Gallup poll released Thursday, 18 percent of Americans named government as the biggest problem facing the U.S.
The economy trailed closely behind as an important problem with 11 percent, followed by “unemployment/jobs” at 10 percent.
The poll shows a slight increase in those who are dissatisfied with government. In February, 17 percent answered that the government is the most important problem. Americans also seem to be optimistic about the economy. Last month, 16 percent of Americans said that the economy was the most important problem — nearly tying with government. That figure is now down 5 percentage points.
Americans’ confidence in all three branches of government is at or near record lows, according to a major survey that has measured attitudes on the subject for 40 years.
The 2014 General Social Survey finds only 23 percent of Americans have a great deal of confidence in the Supreme Court, 11 percent in the executive branch and 5 percent in Congress. By contrast, half have a great deal of confidence in the military.
As Ronald Reagen profoundly stated so many years ago, “Government is not the solution to our problems, government is the problem.”
Ronald Reagan also said so many years ago, “We are a nation that has a government. Our government has no power except for that granted by the people. It is time to check and reverse the growth of government, which shows signs of having grown beyond the consent of the governed.” WAKE UP AMERICA!!!
Donald Trump Says in Iowa: GOP Frontrunners Mitt Romney & Jeb Bush are Doomed to Lose … Regrets Not Having Run in 2012, ‘I Would’ve Won the Race Against Obama’
TRUMP HAS NOTHING GOOD TO SAY ABOUT MITT ROMNEY AND JEB BUSH …
In a sit-down interview with The Des Moines Register, Donald Trump said the two presumed GOP frontrunners, Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush, are doomed to lose. The Donald also went on to say that he regretted that he hadn’t run himself in 2012. Although it is easy to be a Monday morning quarterback, Trump is
47% 100% correct on a couple of issues. One, Romney had his chance against a weak, unpopular president in 2012 and failed. Romney failed because he tried to back into the victory, rather than play offense and win the game. Two, “we’re Bushed out,” especially when Jeb Bush is for “common core” and is pro ‘illegal” amnesty. Much like what Se. Ted Cruz had stated, Romney and Bush represent the “mushy middle” and have no chance of winning.
In a sit-down interview with The Des Moines Register, he said the two presumed GOP frontrunners, Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush, are doomed to lose — and he expressed regret that he hadn’t run himself in 2012.
Trump said he should be in the White House right now.
Trump said he’s not sure which of the potential GOP 2016ers he’d prefer right now, but he’s certain it would be a mistake for Romney to seek a third term.
“He failed. He choked. He’s like a deal-maker that didn’t close the deal. He shouldn’t be running again. He had a great opportunity to win against a president that was absolutely lame, and he didn’t do it. … The 47 percent statement, which was a disaster, is not going away. Romneycare is not going away. All of his problems are not going away. He should get out and get out quickly.”
As for Bush, a former governor of Florida whose family has sent two men to the White House, Trump said: “Frankly we’ve had enough of the Bushes. We’re bushed out.”
At Iowa Freedom Summit this weekend, Donald Trump slams Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush saying they are just not the answer for Republicans. Trump said as to the Presidential election in 2016 and who should be running for the GOP, “It can’t be Mitt because Mitt ran and failed.” Trump further went on to say, “the last thing we need is another Bush. Truer words have ever been spoken and imagine that, they come from The Donald. The last thing the GOP needs in 2016 is an establishment candidate that is more Democrat-like than that who would be in favor of Republican principles and the platform. Donald Trump stated in Iowa that he would “build a beauty of a fence along the southern border.” Whether Trump would or not, or whether he would even give up the perks of his private life to run for president, is irrelevant. What is relevant is that we cannot have another loser, establishment, mushy middle candidate in the form of John McCain or Mitt Romney as the standard bearer.
CBS News: Donald Trump slams Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush:
“It can’t be Mitt, because Mitt ran and failed,” Trump said.
Trump said he liked Romney, formerly a governor of Massachusetts, but he suggested Romney’s infamous “47 percent” comments and his affiliation with a Massachusetts health care reform plan akin to Obamacare should disqualify him.
Plus, Romney “choked” in 2012, failing to unseat Obama in an election that Republicans could have won, Trump argued.
“You can’t have Bush,” Trump added. “The last thing we need is another Bush.”
Trump criticized Bush’s support of common core federal education standards, and he panned Bush’s comment that many illegal immigrants come to the United States as an “act of love” to help their families.
“Half of these people are criminals,” Trump said. “They’re coming for a lot of other reasons, and it’s not love.”
Trump also suggested the unpopularity Jeb Bush’s brother, former President George W. Bush, helped usher President Obama into office: “His brother really gave us Obama.”
Trump offered an ambitious preview of his prospective presidential agenda. ” If I run for president, and if I win, I would totally succeed in creating jobs, defeating ISIS, and stopping the Islamic terrorists… reducing the budget deficit… securing our southern border… stopping nuclear weapons in Iran and elsewhere… saving Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid without cutting it down to the bone… repealing Obamacare and replacing it with something far better.”
