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.

Bah humbug, now that's a suspension of intellect...Semper Fi Nam 66-67

rinocrats! Savage is spot on right about them!

The GOP "establishment" must be running desperately scared to conjure up this BS! Obama had NO experience with any national security or foreign policy knowledge (still doesn't) and he got elected twice!! If the man/woman that is chosen as the candidate for president has the smarts to surround himself/herself with very smart people who are honest and loyal to them that is what really matters. K.T. McFarland, and John Bolton come immediately to mind as two very qualified persons on both subjects. The so-called "moderates" have gone down in flames the last three elections so what does that tell you?  The GOP establishment is nothing but progressives hiding behind a harmless sounding label, but in order to score runs you have to get to first base. Something "moderate" Republicans have failed miserably to do the last twelve years! Cruz or Trump YES! Moderates NO!

Moderates are fools masquerading as Republicans. Trojan Horse occupiers.

This is a very great point.  Obama is the most inexperienced elected official in the history of the US.  I can't believe people elected him twice, though there is substantial proof the both elections were rigged and highly influenced by muslim cash that was illegally used to put this traitor in our highest office and fill the White House with islamists like Val Jarrett and many many other traitors and foreign nationals trained by Muslim Terrorists.

Obama still has no good experience.  The only thing he can hang his hat on in this Presidency is that he took Jimmy Carter out of last place in U S Presidents.  Joe Biden was the only thing that kept him from being impeached and thrown in prison for treason.

Great response

Very well put Mr. Long.  What we as a Nation are doing is not working.  I agree with Dr. Ben, "it's time to get back to the basics of what made our Constitutional Republic Great.  I also agree with Mr. Trump, "Close the borders as our system of law dictates.  

And to that subject Trump has experience. He loves America.

If only Perot has stayed the course.

Deception has many clever forms and this has the Devil's fingerprints all over it.

I wouldn't put it past them. I won't vote then...and urge others to do the same.

BREAKING:   Hillary Clinton Donor Ed Buck Arrested After Another Male Overdoses In His Seedy LA Apartment

Democrat donor and Hillary friend Ed Buck was finally arrested Tuesday night after a third man overdosed in his apartment.

The man who overdosed in Ed Buck’s Los Angeles apartment last week survived, however the other two victims previously died.

Ed Buck will be in court Wednesday.

Ed Buck loves to inject young black gay escorts with methamphetamine — the mother of one of Ed Buck’s victims described it as a fetish.

He was finally arrested after two black gay escorts died in his apartment from overdoses.

KTLA 5 reported:

The prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who overdosed last week, officials said.

Buck was charged with three counts of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting the victim, who survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.

of another young black gay escort was found at the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck, a top Democrat donor and political activist.

As previously reported, a black gay escort named Gemmel Moore died of a meth overdose at Ed Buck’s West Hollywood home in July of 2017.

The LA County District Attorney’s Office previously declined to prosecute Ed Buck saying the evidence was “insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that (Buck) is responsible for the death of Gemmel Moore,” which sparked an outrage from family members and others in the community.

Jasmyne Cannick told FOX and Friends nearly a dozen black men have come forward to speak on their experiences with “serial predator” Ed Buck.
Cannick also went off on the Democrat Party: “Over 77% of black people in California vote Democratic. We vote for Democrats.

It is a shame that when something like this happens, when you have the chair of your state party when at the time of this , Eric Bauman, who was willing to turn a blind eye as well as instruct others not to speak on it. As a black woman, as a black Democrat, I expect more from my party.

Last week, a black male was seen entering Ed Buck’s seedy LA apartment.
