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.

The Devil in disguise. People reach across the spiritual divide and shake hands with the Devil all day.

You think what goes on in Congress is any different?

We've all seen how accurate the GOP has been in regards to Trump and Carson.  Every time the GOP opens their mouth, Trumps polls go up.  We just need to keep them talking, and Trump will be our next President.  It will be nice to have one, since we haven't had one since Bush.

I would say Reagan....

Gee, how'd we get to this terrorist point, had it been for our knowledgable professional career politicians who put us here !!!

 You hit the nail  on the head, Ron !!!!

These fools haven't figured out that they're not in charge anymore.  I find it amusing that they don't mention Ted Cruz at all.  Me thinks they're running scared. 

Ah yes...we have heard this from the "elite" one worlders before...if anything it will make their campaigns stronger. Americans have had it.....the latest poll in AZ is Kelli Ward is beating the socks off john mcpain.....57% to 31%. We have to have enough votes to counter all the demoncrat/illegal  votes mcpain will have voting for him in the primary.

Debra, I can't believe that McCain has that many votes.  That is scary.

Katon Dawson and Fred Malek........you are 100000% wrong!!!! If anything it will make Trump stronger! Americans have had it with one worlder folks like you!

But it's ok for the POS in the rainbow house to put us in danger! Anyone with COMMON SENSE could do abetter job than this POS! The POS is definitely a muslim sympathizer!

A nation's survival is directly dependent on the capability of the Captain (president) who leads it, the crew that assists the captain and the people who either support or resist what the captain and the crew are doing. If the people look the other away, the Captain and the crew will do whatever is in THEIR best interests. Only the people can hold the Captain and the crew accountable to the PEOPLE'S best interests. For at least the last 100 years the people have not been holding their Captain and crew accountable in any meaningful way. If this condition continues, the Captain and the crew will continue to do whatever they damn well please in their own best interests, to the detriment of the people's interests. That is precisely how dictatorships are born because the people don't care "Who the Devil is Running the Darn Country Anyway!" Americans have killed America, not the Captains or the crews. It's up to Americans to restore her ….. that is if they care.

Definitely "worse" to anyone who has been paying attention throughout the past seven years.  There are pictures of Obama as a child dressed in full Muslim garb right down to the turban and he has been photographed kneeling in mosques half way around the world.  He said the call to Muslim prayer is in his view the prettiest sound on earth and once called America the biggest Muslim nation on the globe.  He has consistently refused to observe the annual National Day of (Christian) Prayer while at the same time celebrating the Muslim Ramadan at the White House for the first time in our history.  He even went so far as to state that he had no objections to the building of a salt-in-the-wound ground zero victory mosque, which is historically the first step taken by Muslims before they have taken over any given country worldwide.  Now he wants to import many thousands of potentially dangerous Muslims from abroad.  It is not hard to connect the dots on this picture and it is clear that he is more of a Muslim sympathizer than he is interested in protecting the American citizenry from what could well become a Muslim take-over if not halted immediately by our other 2 branches of government.  These are perilous times indeed.  Obama must not be allowed to orchestrate the Muslim take-over of our Christtian nation, period!

ALERT ALERT

Rudy Fires Warning Shot – Going to Release Evidence on the Biden’s Millions in Corrupt Deeds!

President Trump’s personal attorney and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani dropped a bomb this morning warning that he is going to start revealing documents related to the Biden Family’s corrupt and criminal dealings in the Ukraine and elsewhere around the world.

Rudy tweeted:

Everything I tried to tell the press last March is now coming out, and more. I will now start to reveal the evidence directly to you, the People. The Biden Family Enterprise made millions by selling public office. Then when Joe was Obama’s Point Man, they ALL made millions.

It’s time to take these criminals from the Obama Administration to task.  The Bidens, Obamas and the Clintons were criminal enterprises.
