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.

Dennis Miller !!!

As TEA PARTY Organizer in Long Island, NY  * The Den of  LIBERALISM and RINO Republicanism"  we do have our work cut out for ourselves. Neither the  GOP or the DEMS like us, and the feeling is MUTUAL !!!! But we DID help to elect some REAL CONSERVATIVES in our Counties, which will GROW in time. Both Party's here in NY are as CORRUPT beyond belief. We must CULL the HERD !!!

Eugene,

The O' Reilly is IRRELEVANT. A war monger and a jerk

Cruz would spell Trumps loss to Sanders or   ick.. Hillary. 

If moderates are more electable then why did Dole, McCain and Romney lose?

GOP RINOs must understand the electorate will no longer accept empty promises that are forgotten as soon as the election is over. The American people have spoken on amnesty, Obamacare, Syrian refugees, overspending, planned parenthood and gay marriage. A successful candidate will be an outsider or the GOP will lose again and cease to be a viable party!

Good point Michael !!!

But I DO BELIEVE  MIchael, if TRUMP is nominated  and elected  PRESIDENT you will see some MAJOR CHANGES in the BODY POLITIC !!!!!!

We need a citizen President bad.

I believe Ted Cruz is an outsider even though he is a Senator and he could be a great President if Trump doesn't take it.

IT HAS TO BE TRUMP. THERE IS NO OTHER.

WHEN THINGS ARE OUT OF CONTROL. SHUT DOWN AND START OVER.

Broadcast in Politics Conservative

From Speaker Ryan and the RNC

As the new speaker of the people’s house, I promise to reignite our conservative vision.

But don’t forget: without a Republican president, we can only go so far.

That doesn’t mean we give up. I promise to fight for our principles every single day President Obama remains in office.

But we can also never stop working to take back the White House in 2016.

Lynda, I’m challenging you to support the Official Committee in Charge of Taking Back the White House -- the Republican National Committee (RNC).

Tell Speaker Ryan Your In

Tell Speaker Ryan Your In

We can only succeed if we stand united. I need you on board, Lyn.

Please let me know by tomorrow, Saturday, November 21 that you’re committed to helping the RNC take back the White House.

Our Party needs your help securing the resources to win.

This was my email reply:
If my taxes were not so high. If my taxes didn't go to countries that hate us. If my taxes didn't go to supporting terrorists. If my taxes didn't go to supporting abortion butcher shops. If my gov. didn't penalize people who didn't buy into Obamacare. If the RNC cared about stopping the illegals from coming into this country.  If the republican party truly loved the Constitution and actually serviced the citizens who pay taxes, work hard and love this country. If the Military Vets didn't have to suck wind and die and suffer....well then maybe just maybe I would donate to the Republican Party.

Lyn, got the same email, deleted it after reading it.

Denise,

I really can't stand these lying politicians. You hear from them when they want money as if they are not millionaires. I just had to reply to their email.

ALERT ALERT

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
