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".

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?

Delusional Democrats
