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.

SICK: New Jersey Awarded $3.8 Million In Financial Aid To Illegal Aliens


 A local news report revealed that the state of New Jersey awarded $3.8 million in financial aid to illegal immigrants during the 2018-2019 school year.

According to a report from NJ.com, the state of New Jersey gave $3.8 million in financial aid to 749 illegal immigrant students in the last academic year. More than a quarter of the funding went to 328 illegal immigrants that attend Rutgers University.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed a law last year that allowed illegal immigrants to apply for financial aid. Prior to the signing, illegal immigrants were permitted to apply to pay in-state tuition at public universities but they were not eligible for financial aid.

Murphy, who supports the spending, hit back at Republican critics by arguing that giving financial aid to illegal immigrants is compatible with American values.

“I’d even invite any of those folks who have that attitude, beginning with our president, to come on into this room and allow me or any of us to say, ‘This is the United States of America,’” Murphy said at the time.

David J. Socolow, executive director of the state’s Higher Education Student Assistance Authority, defended the state’s decision to offer financial aid to illegal immigrants.

“This financial assistance offers these New Jersey students a life-changing opportunity,” Socolow said in a brief comment.“The successes of these first 513 students, who are now attending county colleges, state colleges and universities, and independent institutions around the state, will have a positive impact on countless additional lives.”

According to the report, there is currently no limit on the amount of illegal immigrant students that are permitted to receive financial aid from the state of New Jersey. State lawmakers forecast that they will spend approximately $5 million on financial aid for illegal immigrants each year.
