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.'

Ray, again, is it legal to access a person's voting record? Is it accurate? Do you mean someone has MY voting record? Not encouraged that our country keeps voting records of all voters!!!!!!

Even if you have the Job Title, it is not ethical or American to keep a tally of a voting record!

I truly appreciate your Texas conservative status. You are my idea of a Texan!!!! And, if you used what was before you as an assessment, I know liberals did that also. Glad our side also did it!

Jo Anne and even Jo Gonzales, I supported Trump when he first announced his candidacy and even sent money to his site.  About two weeks ago I started looking closely at him and some of the things he was saying.  I could excuse his use of profanity, for it wasn't too bad.  When he started attacking Cruz over something that he had already said it was no questionable subject.  That really didn't sit well because about the same time he was coming out saying that he never went after anyone unless they attacked him.  I took that statement and can say that that was BS for he did the same to Carson.  He went after Fiorina before she ever mentioned Trump and what he said just didn't sit well.  When he then tried to play that New York sympathy statement on New York after the towers went down.  At that time everything was starting to come together for everything that has been said about Trump has been pretty much verified. You said that you have voted Republican since 18, having said that would you sit down and write down all of the principles that applied to you party and then check out video on what Trump has said.  When you have supported Obama and Clinton is just a starting point for you are going to find many others reasons to question.  Thank God that I stepped back and reevaluated my judgement and came to my current opinion that he is a flimflam snake oil salesman and I will not be a party to it.  I will not stay away from the polls if he is the nominee but it will not be with any joy. 

Jo Anne, I fairly positive that every state has Sect. of State that has voting records and 99% positive your county has your voting record.

We had a record on everyone, including the Democrats, that's how I targeted and also followed up on previous party voters.  If your county chairman didn't have it it would be impossible to determine who to solicit.  

You might call your county chairman and verify what I said, that would confirm some of my comments. 

@ Jo Anne, I like your whole article, the points you've brought forth, and think America is in your Pew.  I know I am.    I do not think we're going to get out of all of this,  without a very strong person at the wheel.     Trump would be my choice,  on the basis of his having lived longer, and having much more experience in the "Real World",  where you have to earn things, and struggle with all kinds of problems,  from employees to budgets, to providing Leadership and knowing how to delegate.  Thanks for a great Post.

You are a dear, Jo. Thank you for your acknowledgment.

We were talking about the voting records and I do need to clear up one thing, anybody can't obtain voting records.  To my best of knowledge only County Chairman, registered candidates for office and of course the State Party Offices. 

Ray Hause:  I may just jump over to the Cruz side of the fence. That Trump is sitting out the debate because of Megyn Kelly is less than presidential. It is exactly as you said - petty! I don't like it. We all should heed the warnings and not cover up the truth. Is Trump a narcissistic egomaniac who cannot take criticism without taking a "time out"?

Not the type of character reference or "deal making" we need for the next four years in an effort to Save America. Cruz just might be our vote.

Have to add a post note to my long post:  I could not get the Edit button to actually record my edited typos. In fact, the first time I pressed "Add Reply" - the entire post disappeared - and I had to think a minute or two if I wanted to write that long post again. Since I really, really HATE the "National Review", I re-wrote it, and saved it on Pages before I pressed "Add Reply", but then, I could not edit it. So, the mistakes are glaring.

Just voicing my frustrations with either my computer or a glitch in the site.

Seems the Natl Review and the Chamber of Commerce want their lil rubber stamps... Bush/Rubio.

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

....and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how....

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
