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 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.

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.”

BREAKING: Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President @RealDonaldTrump with the Russia smear. New emails show how senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.
