Donald Trump Goes There, John McCain’s a War Hero Because He Was Captured, “I Like People That Weren’t” … “We Want Results … We Don’t Want Tone”
THIS GROUP WANTS RESULTS, THEY DON’T WANT TONE …
It looks like there is a little riff between The Donald and Sen. John McCain (AZ-R). Nothing is off limits for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, and in thinking about it, it probably should not be. Trump reminds McCain and the rest of the establishment GOP, you better not bring a knife to a gun fight. During Family Leadership Summit in Iowa Donald Trump went there and said the following of RINO John McCain, “He’s a war hero ’cause he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured.” OUCH, he certainly did go there. Now just to provide context to those remarks from Trump, McCain who earlier criticized the Donald for “firing up the crazies” last weekend during a rally in his home state of Arizona.
Was it right for Trump to make the statement, probably not. Donald Trump meant it as a specific comeback against McCain, who had made an insulting comment about Trump followers, calling them crazies. But it will be taken as an attack against all POW’s. But, are all POW’s considered heroes? I, personally believe they are, but not all do. Because of course If Sen. John McCain is not willing to take the arrows, he should stay out of the fight. Why is it okay to insult American citizens who happen to gravitate to the blunt, strait forward message of Trump? Why is it okay for McCain to call American’s crazies who think he’s a Rino? HERE IS THE MAIN POINT, just because one is a war hero does not give them carte blanche to make insulting comments about others. Have you ever seen McCain when he is challenged on a topic, crazies, eh? Personally, I am sick of McCain, he needs to retire or get a full time gig on a cable network. God only knows he is on them enough. John McCain had his chance to run for president and he failed badly. Is McCain a war hero, yes! Has McCain done anything as a politician, no. One would think that he would make the VA his pet project and make sure it has been fixed for wounded warriors. How’s that been going?
In the end, Trump probably owes POW’s an apology, but isn’t that part of the problem of the sad state of affairs that this country has become? Everyone and their mother is offended about something someone said, because they are only willing to look at their own situation and not the bigger picture? Trump made a larger point during this interview and that was, the people want results, they don’t want tone. HE IS CORRECT. When everyone is so worried about tone, an being PC and making sure that every word they say doesn’t offend anyone … in the end, you have said nothing of any importance. Remember when Americans cared more about America than themselves and their fragile feelings? Me neither.
Is Donald Trump rough around the edges, YES. Does he give a damn what he says and who’s feelings he hurts, it doesn’t appear so. Can Trump win the GOP nomination, I don’t think so. But I don’t believe that is Trump’s purpose in life. I think Trump’s ultimate gift to America is not to be President of the United States, sorry Donald, but to bring the gutless, limousine, establishment Republicans back in line with the Republican base and make them responsive to the will of the people who are registered Republicans and the true Independent voters who want leadership in the mode of Ronald Reagan. Lest we remind everyone, including all the mushy-middle Republican politicians, Reagan fought the establishment, privileged GOP just as much as he did Democrats, sometimes maybe even more.
NUKE DEAL REACHED: Barack Obama has officially sold the United States and Israel down the drain and all but guaranteed a nuclear arms race in the Middle East ...
Iran and six nations led vigorously by the United States to reach a deal at any cost has finally reached a historic accord on this morning with regards to Iran’s nuclear capabilities. The members of the panel are Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia, the United States, the European Union and Iran. Aside from all the platitudes from Barack Obama and Sec. of State John Kerry touting this deal as the greatest thing since the Magna Carta, so we are supposed to trust that Iran is going to do what they say, really? When has Iran ever done what they said they would do? Sadly, this deal is a joke and will cause a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.
To check the Iranians we have to put a request into Iran for inspections and Iran has 14 days to respond. Really? Because the Iranian government and Mullahs have changed, they are such trust worthy people. Meanwhile chants continue in the streets of Iran to death to America and Israel. This was an Obama deal for a deals sake as it was too big to fail.
All we can hope is that this deal gets nixed in Congress and both House and Senators from both parties show a backbone and place US security and Middle East stability before party politics and Obama’s legacy.
Iran and a group of six nations led by the United States said they had reached a historic accord on Tuesday to significantly limit Tehran’s nuclear ability for more than a decade in return for lifting international oil and financial sanctions.
President Obama, in an early morning appearance at the White House that was broadcast live in Iran, began what promised to be an arduous effort to sell the deal to Congress and the American public, saying the agreement was “not built on trust. It is built on verification.”
One of the last, and most contentious issues, was the question of whether and how fast an arms embargo on conventional weapons and missiles, imposed starting in 2006, would be lifted.
After days of haggling, Secretary of State John Kerry and his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif, agreed that the missile restrictions would remain for eight years and that a similar ban on the purchase and sale of missiles would be removed in five years.
Those bans would be removed even sooner if the International Atomic Energy Agency is able to reach a definitive conclusion that the Iranian nuclear program is entirely peaceful, and that there was no evidence of cheating on the accord or any activity to obtain weapons covertly.
The provisions on the arms embargo are expected to dominate the coming debate in Congress on the accord.
Even before the deal was announced, critics expressed fears that Iran would use some of the billions of dollars it will receive in sanctions relief to build up its military power in the region. Iranian officials, however, have said that Iran should be treated like any other nation, and not be subjected to an arms embargo if it meets the terms of a nuclear deal.
John Kerry said the implementation of the deal is more important than the text. “I’m not going to stand here and tell you every is going to work without a hitch,” he told reporters.
Iranian negotiators have repeatedly reassured the US that they have a full mandate from President Rouhani and the Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the US secretary of state said.
In answer to his final question he said: “We have put in ample mechanisms in respect to compliance. So I feel very confident about our ability to protect our interests.”
Mark Levin Radio Show: Hillary Clinton & Harry Reid Were Not Always for Open Borders for Illegals … “Adamently Against Illegal Immigrants” … “No Sane Country Would” Reward Illegals
NO ONE POINTS OUT THE HYPOCRISY OF THE LEFT LIKE MARK LEVINE …
During yesterdays Mark Levine Radio Show (July 7), conservative talk show host Mark Levine not only spoke the truth about illegal immigration, self-deportation and how illegals are responsible for breaking up their own family. The below VIDEO is a must listen. Levine brings up some hot button topics that of course today’s Republican politicians try and avoid like the plague.
Harry Reed used to be one of the most aggressive, anti-immigration, anti-illegal immigration Senator. Levine used some past Harry Reed comments where Reed says, “no sane country would offer rewards for illegals.” Imagine that. I guess the United States today has become an insane country with Reed’s premise. So what happened to change Reed’s mind, power? The comments from 1993 Harry Reed sounds like, well, it sounds like Donald Trump.
Listen at your own risk, Can you handle the truth?
Former President Jimmy Carter Says, Obama’s Successes on World Stage “Have Been Minimal” … “US’s Influence & Prestige & Respect in the World is probably Lower than it was 6 or 7 Years Ago.” (VIDEO)
JIMMY CARTER SAYS OBAMA HAS HAD MINIMAL SUCCESSES ON THE WORLD STAGE … I GUESS THAT IS A GOOD THING FOR THE WORLD.
Former President Jimmy Carter ripped Barack Obama in a recent interview stating that Obama’s successes on the world stage “have been minimal.” WOW, that says a lot coming from this disaster of a president on the world stage. Not only did Carter say that Obama’s accomplishments were minimal, he also stated that US influence and prestige in the world was lower than it was 6 or 7 years ago. But Carter doesn’t want to be called a racist so he says’ he doesn’t blame Obama for his failures on the world stage. Of course Obama isn’t to blame, why would anyone in the Democrat party hold him accountable for his failures? Um, then who is to blame, GWB? Or would it be Hillary Clinton’s fault? After all, Carter proclaimed John Kerry was “one of the best secretaries of state we’ve ever had.”
After proclaiming John Kerry “one of the best secretaries of state we’ve ever had,” Carter dumped cold water on Obama’s record abroad.
“On the world stage, I think [Obama’s accomplishments] have been minimal,” Carter said. “I think he has done some good things domestically, like health reform and so forth. But on the world stage, just to be objective about it, I can’t think of many nations in the world where we have a better relationship now than when he took over.”
“I would say the U.S.’s influence and prestige and respect in the world is probably lower than it was six or seven years ago,” Carter said.
Lindsey Graham says he is 91% sure he will run in the 2016 GOP presidential primary … I am 100% sure he will lose and will not even be considered a viable VP running mate.
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace that he is 91% sure that he will throw his hat into the 2016 GOP presidential primary. Graham stated, “I’ve criticized the president for leading from behind, being weak and indecisive;” however, that hardly makes one a candidate to be president or carry your parties banner. Graham is so far out of touch with Republican voters on climate change, raising taxes and amnesty that polls show Graham is running fourth behind Scott Walker, Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz in his home state of South Carolina. The polls found that 55% of Palmetto State voters wouldn’t vote for him for president. It is hard to imagine that Lindsey Grahamnesty will run for president on the GOP side because one has to wonder who would finance his campaign.
WALLACE: Are you too moderate? Are you too far in the center on nondefense issues to win the Republican nomination?
GRAHAM: Not at all. I believe climate change is real, but I reject the cap and trade solution of John — of, you know, of Al Gore. He’s made a religion. It’s a problem.
I would like to clean up the air and water, become more energy independence, create jobs. I’m for offshore drilling. I’m for finding oil and gas that we own. I’m for coal, I’m for clean coal, I’m for natural gas but I would like a lower carbon economy over time. Clean up the air and create jobs in the process.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said his decision on whether he’ll run for president depends on whether he can raise enough money, but he said there’s a “91 percent” chance he will.
“If I can raise the money, I’ll do it,” he said on “Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace.” He added, “I think I got a good message, I think I’ve been more right than wrong on foreign policy. I’ve criticized the president for leading from behind, being weak and indecisive. I’ve been a problem solver in Washington, and I think I’ve got something to offer the party in Washington.”
He said he would make a decision by May.
Note to Lindsey Graham, had you had a viable GOP primary challenge you for Senate in SC like Trey Gowdy or Joe Wilson, Graham would have lost and been back to practicing law.
Outgoing Democrat Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid Says of GOP Presidential Contenders, “I Think They’re all Losers.”
GOOD RIDDANCE HARRY REID …
Honestly, no one is going to miss this miserable man when he leaves the Senate. The Democrat Senate Minority Leader said in an interview with CNBC’s John Harwood that the candidates running for president are all losers. What a miserable individual. It is exactly this type of crotchety, mean spirited behavior that was evident during his run as Senate Majority leader. What ever happened to liberal tolerance? As Taylor Swift sings, “Why do you have to be so mean?”
The Republican field for president in 2016 is full of “losers,” Harry Reid said in an interview that aired Wednesday.
The Senate minority leader, a boxer in his youth, delivered some spirited blows while talking with CNBC’s John Harwood, calling his Republican counterpart Mitch McConnell “a lump of coal” and slamming alternative theories about how he sustained his eye injury.
Reid also said he doesn’t really care who wins the Republican nomination for president. “I think they’re all losers,” he said.
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
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) Wows Them at NRA Convention in Nashville, TN … “Our Country is in Crisis … The Answer is Not Going to Come from Washington, It’s Going to Come from You”
THE NRA HAS INVADED NASHVILLE, TN … Welcome NRA, its members and all pro-Second Amendment supporters!!!
Maybe there was no greater comment made last night by Sen. Ted Cruz than the following, “Our country is in crisis yet we’re gonna pull back and change the path we’re on, but the answer is not going to come from Washington, it’s going to come from you!!!”
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) spoke to the NRA faithfully in Nashville, Tennessee at their Annual Meeting last night and began his speech with … GOD BLESS THE NRA. Cruz mocked Hillary Clinton and her email issues, praised the fact that the victims of the Fort Hood shooting victims finally got their Purple Hearts after 5 years, against the objection of the Obama administration. Cruz went on to say, “It is a time for truth you cannot win a war on radical Islamic terrorism with the president who is unwilling to utter the words radical Islamic terrorist.”
Instead of a president who boycotts Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, imagine America’s standing unapologetically with the nation of Israel. Imagine a commander in chief standing up with clarity and saying we will defeat radical Islamic terrorists. And under no circumstances will the nation of Iran be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons. Some weeks ago I join with 46 other senators signing a letter that we sent to Iran explaining that under the United States Constitution there are only two way something becomes a law, either it is a treaty ratified by two-thirds of the Senate or a law passed by both houses of Congress signed by the president. Well the Obama White House went a little hysterical about that letter.
Ted Cruz further went on to say to the folks in attendance, “you know we’re at a time a crisis. Here at home millions of people are hurting as the economies in stagnation. Abroad the Obama-Clinton foreign policy a leading from behind does not work. And d we’re saying an unprecedented threat to our liberties each and ever day from the Federal government,” but he said he was inspired by the words, deeds and actions of the NRA membership because they fight for their Constitutional rights.
Sen. Ted Cruz, one of two declared Republican candidates for president, told National Rifle Association members in Nashville that he’s fought the conservative battles, unlike his opponents.
“In a Republican primary, every candidate’s going to stand up and say, ‘I oppose Obamacare,’ ” Cruz said at the NRA’s annual meeting Friday. “The question we ought to ask is, ‘Great, when have you stood up and fought Obamacare?’ “
“Every candidate is going to say they don’t support amnesty. Alright, great. When have you stood up and fought to stop the president’s illegal and unconstitutional executive action?”
Ted Cruz then thanked the NRA for standing up to the liberal Democrat and Barack Obama’s knee-jerk reaction to the tragic Sandy Hook shooting massacre in Connecticut. Cruz said he was proud to stand with his friends Sens. Mike Lee and Rand Paul:
You know we all remember two years ago the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook. Every one of us whose parents it was heartbreaking to see those little children murdered by that lunatic and yet we also remember the president’s response. President Obama had an opportunity then he could have tried to bring people together in a bipartisan manner to say let’s go after violent felons let’s go after criminals let’s protect our kids and stop the bad guys. But instead he used as an excuse to try to come after the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. I gotta tell you in the weeks and months that followed Sandy Hook, if you guys were sitting in the Senate Republican lunch, you would have jumped out the window. Because the Senate was there was this is unstoppable this is a freight train it can’t be stopped let’s get out of the way and I’ll tell you I was proud to stand with my friends Mike Lee and Rand Paul in sending an sending a very short two sentence letter to Harry Reid that we said we will filibuster any legislation that undermines the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
What happened next is that it slowed the liberal Democrat anti-Second Amendment train down and shed the light as to what was happening and that Democrats were trying to take political advantage of a terrible and tragic incident. That is when citizen action took place.
And that’s when the men and women in this room began to take over. In the weeks that followed each if you and millions of Americans lit up the phones. It started with three of us by the end to the next week we were up to 17 senators on the letter. Then we had our first vote we needed to get to 41, we only got to 31. And all our friends in the media said up, you failed you only got to 31. But like any meaningful military conflict it’s rarely one on the first skirmish. That 31 was a whip count and suddenly each of you knew every senator that had voted against the Second Amendment and heaven on earth descended on those senators. And thanks to the passionate leadership of the men and women in this room when it came to the senate floor every single wanna President Obama’s proposals to undermine the Second Amendment was voted down on the Senate floor.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) set to officially announce his run for president for 2016 on Tuesday …
Even Democrats who go against the Obama agenda appear to be on Barack’s enemies list …
New Jersey US Senator Robert Menendez was indicted today with on corruption charges in that he used his office to help advance the business interests of a longtime friend and political supporter in exchange for luxury gifts, vacations and campaign donations.? In total, Menendez faces a 14-count indictment consisting of 1 count of conspiracy, 1 count of violating the travel act, 7 counts of bribery, 3 counts of honest services fraud, and 1 count of making false statements. Menendez has denied any wrongdoing and vows to fight the charges, stating that he will be vindicated. While he will not leave office, Menendez will step aside from his position as the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee as he fights the charges.
Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) was indicted on federal corruption charges Wednesday, accused of using the influence of his office to advance the business interests of a longtime friend and political supporter in exchange for luxury gifts, lavish vacations and more than $750,000 in campaign donations.?
Federal prosecutors laid out the charges in a 14-count indictment charging Menendez with using his office to help Salomon Melgen, a Florida-based eye doctor with whom Menendez had maintained a long personal and political friendship. Menendez intervened on Melgen’s behalf in at least two disputes, one with federal regulators over Medicare charges and the other involving a bid by Melgen to secure a port security contract in the Dominican Republic, according to the indictment.
Prosecutors say that over a seven-year period, Menendez relied on Melgen for free private jets to weekend getaways at resorts in Florida, the Dominican Republic and Paris.
Menendez has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing. He was defiant Wednesday night before a boisterous crowd of supporters, saying that Melgen’s gifts were a result of friendship dating to the early 1990s and not in exchange for political favors.
Just curious, how much of the DOJ’s investigation and indictments against Menendez have to do with political wrongdoing and how much has to do with the fact that he has been a political thorn in Obama’s side? The Democrat Senator has been extremely vocal against Obama’s policy in Cuba and with Iran. Obama probably did not appreciate it when Mendeez said in a Senate Foreign Relations Committee back in January 2015, “the More I hear from the Obama administration and its quotes, the more it sounds like talking points that come straight out of Tehran.” As much as I am not a big fan of Robert Menendez, his words have proved to be profound as we witness Obama’s disastrous nuclear plan with Iran.
