Republicans kick National Review magazine out of February debate

An American conservative magazine found itself disinvited from co-sponsoring a presidential primary debate Thursday night after it published an entire issue devoted to tearing down Republican front-runner Donald Trump.

Speaking to DailyMail.com during a press conference in Las Vegas, Trump dismissed the 60-year-old publication, National Review, as washed-up and irrelevant.

'Its circulation is way down. Not very many people read it anymore,' he said at the Venetian Hotel and Casino before making an appearance on stage at the Outdoor Sportsman Awards, where he accepted the endorsement of 'Duck Dynasty' star Willie Robertson.

'I mean, people don't even think about the National Review,' Trump said. 'So I guess they want to get a little publicity. But you know, it's a dying paper. It's pretty much – I've gotta tell you David, it's pretty much of a dead paper.'

Glad to see the RNC standing up for a conservative, for a change!

WOW!

Who's idea was it and why after the RNC has been trashing Trump themselves, did they feel it necessary to dis-invite a conservative magazine as sponsor?  I smell a rat.

I wonder which candidate pissed and moaned about their sponsoring the event. Instead of crying about it, why didn't he bring out the normal liberal threat,  "Sue them".

The only honorable (no with RNC honorable wrong word) politically acceptable action they could take a debate is supposedly moderated by neutral persons (you know like CNN MSNBC etc.) 

The thinking at National Review has become very confused.

They claim that Trump will destroy the "values" and "principles" of the Republican Party!  Oh really.  It appears quite clear, the RINO/Establishment "Republicans" (Democrat Lites), such as Mitch McConnell and his entire Senate "Leadership" team, what a joke that is) - and Speaker Paul Ryan and his equally inept "Leadership" team, following in the footsteps of DUFUS Speaker Boehner, are all DEMOCRAT LITES, have already DESTROYED what was once the party of smaller government and reduced spending.  They long ago PROVED they represent half of the notion the "Loyal Opposition" - they being so very loyal to KEEPING THEIR JOBS and LOYAL to Obama and Democrats, giving their way, on anything they want, ALWAYS! 

Don, I have to ask what "values" and what "principles" are these people talking about??? I have not seen any "values" or "principles" for a long time. I have seen a Party who deserted their Flock, and bowed down and kissed Obama's ring. The people did not elect them to become Democrats in Drag.

If I were the Donald..., I would hire a COMPANY, or more of ARMED men, TO GUARD MY BACK, since the RNC is showing some backbone. I suspect the FIX is in.

For the last few days I've been pointing out that Trump wasn't a conservative and seriously didn't know if he even knew he was running in the Republican Party.  Now, we see that maybe even the Republican Party doesn't even know who represents the Party.  Ultimately, Cruz is right, the Republican Progressives know they have their puppet in Trump and will now start kissing his ass. Trump has everything a man could want but having the power of our Presidency would only solidify it.  When was the last real power hungry people says what Trump says, Obama and Hitler, which of these two would you think Trump closely resembles. 

Neither.

Jo, you and I have been on the same side as long as we have responded on these sites.  I really do think you are a good conservative or at least an old time Republican.  Having said that, would you please define the principles that you base you belief.  I hope that you know I'm going to counter everything with what we all know about Trump.  I would first like to take away one of those things that our candidates says what we want to hear.

Hi Ray, I think the majority of my belief, would be based on the fact that so many, many Politicians can be bought, and this man has all the money he needs. So maybe he really is sincere in his hope to make this Country Great Again. I become more sickened daily with "Politicians".

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
