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".

Hillary Clinton says she is “deluged” with requests to try another run for president and has still not completely ruled out joining the crowded field of 2020 Democrat candidates.

The former U.S. Secretary of State has repeatedly avoided categorically stepping out of the race for the White House – or directly into it, for that matter.

During media appearances in the UK last month, Clinton twice hinted she may make a belated push on the basis she claims so many people want to see her on the national stage once more.

Speaking on the BBC’s Graham Norton Show in London last Friday, Clinton confirmed she would “have to make up my mind really quickly” if she was going to join the race.

When pushed to respond if she would make a run for the White House for a third time, she prevaricated and avoided a direct reply, instead responding with: “As I say, never, never, never say never.”

She did concede she would need to make up her mind “really quickly” about whether or not to jump into the presidential race.

Clinton has already missed the filing deadline for the first primary in New Hampshire but there is no deadline for the next caucuses in Iowa in early February.

Responding to Norton, Clinton said she had been “deluged” over the last few weeks thinking about running again, but added that, “right now, I’m not, at all, planning that.”

Norton asked: “The rumour mill is flying that you could step back into the ring.”

Clinton replied: “I hear that. I have been deluged the last few weeks with thinking about doing that, but right now I’m not at all planning that.”

Last month Clinton told BBC Radio 5 Live she was under “enormous pressure” to consider a 2020 White House run.

When asked about her future in politics, Clinton said, “I feel a sense of responsibility partly because you know my name was on the ballot, I got more votes, but ended up losing to the current incumbent in the White House who I think is really undermining our democracy in very fundamental ways. And I want to retire him.”

When asked if she is absolutely ruling it out, Clinton said, “ I will certainly tell you. I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it. But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans.”

Clinton and her daughter Chelsea, are currently in London promoting their new co-authored book – The Book Of Gutsy Women: Favourite Stories Of Courage And Resilience.
