It’s Cruz; Hill/Bern!

Rather than clutter this post with dozens of articles I thought it better to simply rehash the results with a few thoughts interjected, then expand in the reply section. Here’s a few things we know:

O’Malley and the Huckster suspended their campaigns last night… nobody noticed.

Cankles beat The Bern by .2 %. There were 6 precincts where the delegate count was a tie, and the winner was determined by a coin flip. She defied 1 in 64 odds and won all 6 flips. I think Bent Penis supplied the coin.

Trump learned something about having an effective ground game. Cruz beat him by getting the evangelicals out.

The GOP Elite have a new banner carrier…Marco Rubio, Gang of Eight extraordinaire, who came from nowhere to finish third, narrowly behind The Donald.

Klintoon was effusive in her thanking Iowans for her narrow victory, acting like it was a landslide. She had every major democrat bigshot in her pocket and was almost bested by a septugenarian socialist with an army of millennials who have no clue how things work in the real world.

The last two winners of the Republican caucuses were Rick Santorum and Huckabee….for what it’s worth.

The Hawkeye Cauc-eye

Let the games begin. The horses (and whores) are at the starting gate and the flag is about to drop. According to which poll (if any) you choose to believe, Trump is: way ahead/running neck and neck with Cruz/Rubio is surging. Hillary is: pulling away from Sanders/trailing Sanders/in a dead heat with Sanders. The Bern is whining that Cankles is packing the caucuses with shills from out of state,the same way the community organizer cornholed her in 2008.

Tomorrow every political pundit will pen a tome about the who and why of this earth-moving event which in the final analysis will make absolutely no difference. If I can pull myself up to my desk tomorrow I plan to try to come up with something moderately coherent for a change. No promises.

WATCH: How a Caucus Works, Explained with Lego
Ever wondered how U.S. political parties really choose their candidates? It seems complicated, but it doesn’t need to be. Here, we break down how the Iowa caucus works — in Lego

BREAKING: Final Iowa Poll Shows Donald Trump Moving to Five-point Lead over Ted Cruz; Eight Point Swing Since Previous Early Jan. Poll – 1/30/16

The Des Moines Register/Bloomberg just released their final Iowa Poll ahead of Monday’s Iowa Caucuses, and it finds Donald Trump moving out to a 5-point lead over Ted Cruz 28%-23%, with Marco Rubio in third at 15%.
This is an 8-point swing for Trump since the last Iowa Poll when Cruz led by 3-points. Pollster Ann Selzer said their polling showed no real impact after Thursday night’s GOP Debate that Donald Trump walked away from.

Trump now leads in our average of Iowa Polls by +6.2 points.

Gallup: Trump Has Highest Unfavorable Rating of Any Candidate EVER

Newsmax reported:
Donald Trump has the highest unfavorable rating since Gallup began tracking the indicator for nominated candidates from either political party during the 1992 elections. Just two days before the Iowa caucuses, 60 percent of Americans surveyed view Trump unfavorably, versus 33 percent who see him favorably.

By comparison, Democrat Hillary Clinton’s rating is 52 percent, while Jeb Bush’s is 45 percent.

Chris Christie’s is at 38 percent, while Ted Cruz’s is 37 percent, Marco Rubio 33 percent, fellow Democrat Bernie Sanders holds 31 percent, while and Ben Carson’s rating is 30 percent.

“The bottom line is that Trump now has a higher unfavorable rating than any candidate at any time during all of these previous election cycles,” said Frank Newport, Gallup’s editor-in-chief.

IA Governor Branstad: Hillary is VINDICTIVE – She Won’t Forget If She GETS STUNG TWICE
WHAT CAN SHE POSSIBLY DO THAT THE VINDICTIVE PRICK-IN-CHIEF HASN’T ALREADY DONE?
Tucker Carlson: Let’s say Hillary loses tonight. It’s the second time she loses and becomes president. Are you concerned?

Governor Branstad: Oh, she’s vindictive… Oh, she is vindictive. And, you know what she said after she lost here eight years ago? My concern is, if she gets beat here and then becomes president, I think we got a really big problem… I think she’d see to it that Iowa was not first… If this state stung her twice she’s pretty vindictive and I don’t think she would forget what happened.

Uh, Governor,we get it… she’s vindictive.

THE CHARACTER ASSASSINATION MACHINE

The fourth Republican debate will be held Tuesday, Nov. 19 on Fox Business channel. I have all the channels so I could watch it if I were so inclined. Gov. Krispy Kreme and Huckabee have been relegated to the triple-A farm team and Pataki and Grahamnesty didn’t even make the cut. They were traded to the democrats for two chickens, a flat tire, and a cheese sandwich.
There’s an old saying if you’re drawing fire you must be over the target. It is also well known that the left will always tell you who they’re afraid of. CNN is the advance team of hitmen aiming to destroy Dr. Ben Carson. They have set about dissecting every word he’s ever spoken with the intent of trying to implicate him as a liar. Given the complete and total pass they gave Bent Penis, Obumbles, and Cankles, who all lie as a matter-of-factly this goes well past absurdity.

Carson Tells CNN: Your Story on My Past Is ‘A Bunch of Lies’
Ben Carson Friday told CNN that its story questioning his accounts of violence as a youth as “a bunch of lies” and a “pathetic” attempt to distract him and the public from the real issues that are important.

“You know, I’m not proud that I had these rage episodes,” the top-ranking GOP candidate told CNN “New Day” anchor Alisyn Camerota during a long-ranging, often contentious exchange. “But I am proud of the fact I was able to get over them. My message has been that you can escape from that kind of anger.”

Dr. Ben Carson: ‘I Am Going To Fight CNN Tooth and Nail’

In 2008, a mere month prior to Election Day, CNN investigative report Drew Griffin uncovered a game-changer: then-candidate Barack Obama had lied about his adult relationship with terrorist Bill Ayers. Watch the video. Watch CNN’s Anderson Cooper drop it as a nothingburger. Neither CNN nor the rest of the DC Media would ever touch the subject again.

Fast-forward eight years. In what is obviously a racially-motivated effort to disqualify a free-thinking black man, CNN is pouring a half-dozen investigative reporters into Detroit with the goal of destroying Carson’s rise to power. This is part of the CNN’s DNA. Going back to slavery, Jim Crow, and segregation, Democrats have been socialized into destroying black people who threaten their political power.
Because no one can remember a few fights and a non-stabbing that occurred more than fifty years ago, CNN is smearing Carson as a liar and crazy. Imagine that: growing up in a violent ghetto and not being able to remember someone throwing a rock 57 years ago?

THE LEFTIST U.K. TELEGRAPH PILES ON:
Ben Carson’s latest claims – he was homeless, hungry and saw segregation at water fountains
Carson posts a rambling, late-night open letter on his Facebook page in which he defends his lack of political experience and describes a hardscrabble childhood
Retired surgeon claims his ancestors were slaves, says he knows ‘the pain of poverty’
Carson has recently also described a wild temper in his youth that once led him to attempt to murder a classmate and attack his own mother with a hammer
Several of Carson’s boyhood friends say they have no recollection of such instances

DR. CARSON ONCE CALIMED THE PYRAMIDS WERE BUILT BY JOSEPH TO HOUSE GRAIN,NOT AS TOMBS FOR PHARAOHS. HE ALSO CLAIMS NO ANIMAL EVER EVOLVED INTO A DIFFERENT ANIMAL.

Condescending CNN Anchor to Ben Carson: ‘Was U.S. a Communist Country Before Fox News?’
Surging Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson had a contentious interview Friday morning with CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota on the New Day morning show.
Before talking about the Fox comment, Camerota went after Dr. Carson for another quote from the same speech in which he said many Americans are “stupid.” In context, Carson was saying the American people overall are smarter than the leftist elites think they are, but that there are many who are smart.

“They can twist and turn things as much as they want. But what they don’t understand—and they miscalculated. They were doing a great job in terms of fundamentally changing this nation. In terms of infiltrating the school systems. In terms of infiltrating the media. All of this—they’ve done a great job. Everything was perfect. Except they underestimated the intelligence of the American people. The people are not as stupid as they think they are. Many of them are stupid. Okay. But I’m talking about overall.”
Camerota introduced the Fox comment when Carson brought up that she used to work at Fox. Carson was exasperated at Camerota for trying to “put words in (his) mouth”, saying to her:

“I can’t believe that you used to work on Fox and you’ve turned into that, I can’t believe it.”

THEY’RE TRYING TO SHOW HE DOESN’T HAVE THE TEMPERMENT TO BE PRESIDENT…UNLIKE OBAMA.

MSDNC’S TOKEN RINO CHIMES IN:

DIANNY SPEAKS:
Alisyn Camerota: Making Emily Litella look good

If Emily Litella could get up in arms over the Eagle Rights Amendment or Violins on television, I suppose it’s nothing for Alisyn Camerota to get up in arms over Ben Carson saying without Fox News, we’d be Cuba.

The only difference is, eventually Emily realized she was wrong and would quietly say, “Never mind.”

I don’t know about you, but I won’t be holding my breath waiting for Alisyn Camerota to say “never mind” when somebody finally manages to explain to her that Ben Carson was making what we on Planet Earth call, “A joke.”

CNN: Idiots on Parade
CURMUDGEON IS ON POINT

So, CNN thinks they’ve destroyed Dr. Ben Carson by declaring they’ve proven his accounts of his youth (over fifty years ago) are lies because they can’t find anyone to confirm or deny they happened.

Wow. They’ve really blown the lid of this, haven’t they
This is CNN.

A network so fully invested in destroying anyone who threatens the Democrat Party Agenda they will beclown themselves in their reporting to do it.

Let’s be honest. A successful, brilliant black man who overcame a life of poverty and hardship through faith in God aspiring to be President of the United States on the Republican ticket must be destroyed because his very existence flies in the face of Liberal belief.

Of course CNN is doing this. You think they didn’t notice that Dr. Carson is beating Hillary in a one-on-one match-up by nine points?

The Enslaved Press exist to advance one political party while destroying another.

Election News

Life, family and religious values won big this week. Political correctness and radical left-wing causes lost. Word is the MSM is suffering vapors and has retired to the boudoir to dab lavender oil on its temples.

SWOON pearls

65% of Ohio voters rejected an initiative to legalize marijuana, despite pot supporters having out-spent opponents 20-to-1.

Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant easily won re-election, despite his public support for ending legal abortion in his state.

Pro-Life Republican Matt Bevin is now governor of the usually solidly Democrat state of Kentucky.  Reports show that his defense of Kim Davis was a huge factor in his victory.

Virginia Delegate Bob Marshall easily won re-election against a Democrat opponent who had spewed the usual traditional values are “divisive, mean-spirited, and discriminatory” crap.

Uber liberal San Franciscans voted out the Sheriff responsible for freeing the illegal immigrant who subsequently went on to viciously kill Kate Steinle.

Republican Mike Harmon successfully challenged Democrat incumbent, Adam Edelen, for State Auditor.  Edelen spent nearly $1 million on the campaign; Harmon spent about $40,000. Edelen had said he planned to run for Senator Rand Paul’s seat in 2016.  Yeah, no.

Houston voters, who usually lean solidly Democrat, rejected the radical transgender law that would have forced men to put up with women and women to put up with men using their restrooms, showers, and changing rooms. The lesbian mayor of Houston demanded opposition ministers deliver copies of their sermons to her, then refused to put the issue on the ballot. She was overturned by a unanimous state Supreme Court decision and the law was voted down 63% to 37%.

America Today: “Easily Duped and Way Off Course” but Getting There Anyway

Gavin McInnes, the Master, the Scottish-born, ex-Canadian, punk rock maestro, devoutly Catholic family man, the doctor of post-hipster analysis of the American condition, has written an excellent opinion piece in Taki’s Mag about the Trump phenomenon and some of the signs of why it’s a good thing in the crazy, screwed up, cultural hash that America has become.
trump-on-the-cover-of-the-rolling-stone2
McInnes’ insight is that you have to look at the “crybaby generation’s” take on things, because they determine the outcome of elections, like it or not. People like the idiots who write for Rolling Stone magazine, for example. “The crybaby generation is driving this boat and they don’t know how to drive. This is what’s so great about Trump. In an era where dupes are easily led, you need a great leader.”

Gavin McInnes

Gavin McInnes


And by “great leader,” McInnes is talking about a leader who doesn’t put up with the whining classes’ bullsh*t. That’s Trump all over. The magic of this is that after years of conservative leaders being too timid to stand up to the spoiled babies on the left, and getting nowhere, Trump is exactly the “strong daddy figure” that the millenials and assorted lefties really want, even if they won’t admit it. Read the article, and you’ll see examples of how the hip, young pundits are writing about Trump with the thinly-disguised admiration of trust-fund brats who are finally ready to go to work for Daddy’s business. McInnes explains this in the politically-incoherent way that only he can:

The Democrats, the mainstream media, neocons, liberals, and college kids are all part of the same hive. They want to fight but they don’t want to win. They’re like that crazy Latina girlfriend in a screaming panic who won’t shut up until you grab her by the wrists and say, “Shut the f*&k up. I got this.” We need to throw her onto the couch, grab a beer, and get back to work. That’s ultimately what she wants too. She just doesn’t realize it yet.

And the best part? “I still believe Trump is a snowplow who is paving the way for Ted Cruz. At the last second, he endorses Cruz and we get all the bravado of the former with the brains of the latter.” I concur. Fingers crossed. Cross-Posted and Bowdlerized from Blog of Monte Cristo.

THE UNENDING SILLY SEASON

Once upon a time, not so long ago, what was commonly referred to as the political silly season would starting late spring/early summer of an election year. The politically ignorant brain-dead slackers that are the Democrat base do not, by and large, encumber themselves with rational thought or facing the reality of what their benefactors have done to the country.

Nowadays an election cycle begins nanoseconds after the last election. It is a perpetual reality. This, I believe, is driven by phony journalists who graduate from the Kennedy School of Journalism and feel they must “change the world” instead of simply reporting it. They do not put forth the effort to actually investigate anything, just ape whatever the New York Times tells them to write.

Lets be clear: the democrat party would not, could not exist without the complicity of a media that a few decades ago still feigned impartiality. They carry out the attacks for democrats so they can stay above the fray and dutifully ignore the myriad outrages committed by liberals with impunity. Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the scrubbing of Cankles’ subpoenaed hard drives, or Planned Parenthood selling baby parts as if they were at a swap meet. Their base is ignorant, lazy, and only interested in what’s in it for them.

Pity. The blissfully ignorant don’t see their party bigshots squirming as their chosen one ducks and dodges to avoid the consequences of the many felonies she’s committed. They also have a doddering old socialist promising everybody everything, paid for by a 90% tax rate.

On our side, there is a small army of contenders and pretenders all vying for a piece of the spotlight that The Donald is dominating right now. While I still maintain he will not be the nominee for a number of reasons, it’s fun watching him make talking heads explode. We have more than a year to see what happens. What the heck, I got nothing else to do.

The Brilliant, Long-Range Stealth Campaign of Ted Cruz

tedcruz
In the marathon of US Presidential campaigns, the most important advantages are money, name-recognition and the support of one of the major party machines. But if those were the only factors, Hillary Clinton already would be at the end of her second term. They’re not. Hillary’s husband was a stealth-horse candidate (‘dark horse’ not being mentionable, currently), and so were all his political godfathers, including JFK and Jimmy Carter.

Poll2It takes only a glance at the latest Fox News poll, at right, to see who has the ‘stealth’ strength at this early date when all the attention is focused on Donald Trump. I find it very encouraging that numbers two and three on the list are such strong candidates, ideologically, cerebrally and morally. Dr. Ben Carson and Ted Cruz, whether on the same ticket or individually, are outstanding conservative candidates.

And what of Trump? Despite his potential and deep resources and the obvious benefit his strong voice has been to the contest overall, many expect him to “flame out” over the next year or so. I’m one of those people, at the moment, at least.

And, for the moment, Ted Cruz seems to be playing the ideal, long-term stealth game. Matt K. Lewis wrote a piece about this earlier today in which he praised several of Cruz’s strategic moves. Lewis has some insider knowledge about the campaigns of Cruz and Rick Perry, but no current connection with the Cruz campaign. He comments on Cruz’s decision to enlist Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel:

But Cruz’s embrace of McDaniel also reminds me of something. In his book Hardball, Chris Matthews recalls how a one-term Georgia governor named Jimmy Carter was able to build a national network capable of winning the 1976 presidential nomination.

It started with the 1974 mid-terms. On the night of the ’74 elections, when the DNC chairman was calling the winners, Matthews writes, “the governor was calling the losers.”

62005453We have a long way to go in this contest, but conservatives have found some hope, for the moment, in Donald Trump. Fortunately, one of the joys of having a deep bench is that our hope is not carried by just one rich guy and his Slovenian supermodel wife. That’s probably a good thing.

Finally Free of the Clutches of the Aging, Leftist, Media Oligarchy, Fox-Moderated GOP Debates Expose Bright Light of Reality to a Weary Nation.

Still a little queasy from the rarified air of a debate refreshingly free of loaded Marxist moderator questions, I’ve recovered enough to make the following observations about the first-tier GOP debates:
150804161246-fox-2016-debate-stage-lead-bash-dnt-large-169
1. Donald Trump is now recognized by everyone as the pompous buffoon that he is. And this should have been obvious already for months. Favorite stumble: When he bragged that he had bought favors from half the politicians on the stage, in defense of his previous suspicious contributions to Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi. Though some of the debaters chimed in “NOT ME,” Chris Christie looked painfully silent, and sealed his identity (and Trump’s along with him) as the biggest crony insider on the stage.

2. It’s not really a secret now that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are going to be openly mocked by children on the dirt streets of remote Filipino villages for a century at least as the most historically inept and corrupt politicians in history, including Soviet-era commissars. I don’t see how this can be avoided now, even if they hire a whole army of Marie Harfs.
