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.

Pay-Back !!! Pedophile Who Assaulted Nearly 200 Kids Stabbed To Death In Prison

A convicted pedophile who abused almost 200 children was stabbed to death in North Yorkshire, England, on Sunday.

Richard Huckle, 33, from Ashford, Kent, was given 22 life sentences in 2016 after he admitted to sexually abusing 71 kids whose ages ranged from six months to 12 years between 2006 and 2014, according to the BBC.

The report said Huckle was attacked with a makeshift knife while inside his cell at the Full Sutton Prison.

At the pedophile’s trial in 2016, investigators said they found over 20,000 indecent photos and videos of his assaults, which were shared with other pedophiles via a site on the dark web called The Love Zone.

Reports said that prior to his arrest, Huckle posed as an English teacher and Christian volunteer worker in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he groomed impoverished children.

In one of his online posts, Huckle reportedly wrote “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”

Reports said he attempted to make money from his crimes by crowdfunding the release of the photos.

“Huckle also created a 60-page ‘how-to’ guide for other pedophiles seeking to evade being caught, and kept a scorecard and points system regarding the children who were abused — leading investigators to speculate he may have as many as 200 victims,” a Fox News report stated.

At his sentencing in 2016, Judge Peter Rook condemned Huckle for his heinous crimes he said had become routine for the pedophile.

Rook commented:

Your offending behavior became entrenched in your everyday life. Your life revolved around your sexual activities with young children. Your distorted beliefs in respect of children are deep-seated. Your self-delusion knows no bounds. It is also clear that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.

Reports said prior to his death, Huckle refused to cooperate with authorities when they tried to unlock a cache of encrypted files he had access to that may contain the names of victims and other pedophiles, according to Fox News.
