GOP leaders: National security will end Carson and Trump campaigns

Donald Trump and Ben Carson have demonstrated more staying power than anyone predicted. But now, after the terrorist attacks on an American ally, Republican elders think their party’s flirtation with inexperience is nearing its end.

The reemergence of foreign policy atop the Republican agenda will force voters to reevaluate the outsider candidates, particularly as both Trump and Carson display a lack of knowledge about national security and the terrorist threat, party stalwarts said.

“The losers are going to be Donald Trump and Ben Carson on national security,” said Katon Dawson, the former chairman of the South Carolina GOP. “As the Republican base sobers up, they are the two, if this story lasts a long time, it's going to hurt."

Indeed, in interviews with current and former GOP chairs, veteran operatives, lobbyists and strategists, the long-held conviction that neither Trump nor Carson will win the Republican nomination has only strengthened since the attacks in Paris last week.

Fred Malek, who has advised multiple Republican presidents and is not affiliated with any contender this cycle, said the inexperience Trump and Carson reveal in their rhetoric will drive GOP primary voters toward another candidate.

Vote for a 3rd party candidate like the Constitution Party. That will send a far better message to the moribund GOP.

You are right about the "moribund GOP" but It would also elect a democrat for president.........President Hillary Clinton.  The Constitution Party has to get a lot stronger before it could challenge both traditional parties.

They sound just like the liberal loons.

Don't hold your breath.  The GOP fat cats can't control Trump and that is the ONLY reason they want to defeat him. Trump is the David of the party who will kill the fat cat Giant Lobbyists and crooked insiders.  He is the most popular figure since JFk and they hate that.  When Trump gets elected, and he will I hope he takes out some time to clean out The Karl Roves and Reince Priebis crowd.  First, he has to clean up the mess Obama left ,  This was not just Obama's doing.  Karl Rove and the GOP machine helped him because they too are globalists who want to see America destroyed so they can pull us down to the low level where they have the rest of the world.  They like to keep people poor, unarmed and uneducated so they are easier to control.  We are having such a major upheaval in the world today because America is not going down as easily as the Elite like G. Soros and the Bilderberg group want.

We must elect Trump because if both sides, who have been screwing America for 20+ years, hate him, he certainly is the only good man left in America. 

The gop (GOP) will try anything to stop Cruz and or Trump! Moderates, years ago, might have been electable Today, they have proven, they cannot be trusted! After all, they gave and are still giving this POS in the rainbow house everything he's wants!!! I feel the majority of republicans are NOT conservative!! Perhaps scumbags!

Probably unfaithful to their wives, too.

So, why would they be faithful to America?

They GOP will try anything to get rid of the nominees the people want, so they can keep putting in their Rinos (Democrats in sheeps clothing).  The people will still prevail.  God Trump, to hell with the GOP!!!

There are a lot of very smart people in this Country! Some are to smart get involved with the idiots on the Hill. They couldn't tolerate them!

Since the established politicians have done such a remarkable job carrying out National Security they use this as a reason to say Trump and Carson are the losers.

Is it not the established politicians that have allowed for the threat to our national security by allowing the flood of illegal aliens, that accused Americans of being inhumane over the influx of "children" from Central America, that are allowing enemies not only to enter the country but to operate training camps, that have allowed agencies like CAIR and La Raza dictate policy?

The brain dead POS in the white house is more worthless than Trump OR Carson

"NO" It will not hurt them because they are the ones which is called common sense and the RINO's and the democrats don't seem to have any between their ears.

The GOP truly is the party of spineless idiots

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
