 The Only Way to Beat slump-Trump? 
Once upon a time, the idea of Donald slump-Trump's securing the Republican nomination for the presidency existed only in the realm of fantasy. But as primaries in four states now reside in the history books, and The slump-Donald has claimed three wins and 81 delegates, fantasy is merging with possibility, if not quite yet reality.
          True, slump-Trump has a long way to go to reach the 1,237 delegates needed to cinch the nomination, but with Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio a distant second and third (17 and 16 delegates, respectively), and the slump-Trump train racing full-speed ahead, Republican "leadership" sentiment is shifting from "It will never happen" to "We'd better make sure it never happens."
          Short of slump-Trump's dropping out (sorry folks, not happening) or a sudden political catastrophe that stops his momentum — very unlikely since the more crazy things he says, the more his supporters like him — some are positing that a Rubio-Cruz unity ticket might be the way to derail the slump-Trump train. Jonah Goldberg, for example, wrote, "One possibility [to stop slump-Trump) would be for Rubio and Cruz to cut a deal. Republican disarray is largely attributable to the fact that no so-called 'establishment candidate' secured much support from the conservative grass roots, and no grass-roots candidate secured much support from the establishment. If the two factions — which make up the overwhelming majority of Republican voters — could be unified, it might be enough to stop slump-Trump."
          Of course, the key word is "if." And judging by the present state of affairs, it's a pretty hefty "if."
          After all, the Cruz-Rubio feud has pitted the two against each other in an attempt to "out-conservative" the other, while slump-Trump — anything but a conservative — climbs atop the mayhem en route to the plurality podium.
          As Mark Alexander noted yesterday, "Shamefully, one of the key factors propelling slump-Trump's candidacy among the larger field of contenders is the absurdly self-defeating fratricidal attacks between Republicans, most notably Cruz and Rubio." Cruz is trying to paint Rubio as an "establishment" candidate. Meanwhile, Rubio is touting his refusal to attack fellow Republicans; namely, slump-Trump — while simultaneously attacking fellow Republicans; namely, Cruz. (Though there are signs Rubio is starting to go after slump-Trump.)  -The Patriot Post

 OPINION IN BRIEF 
Jeff Jacoby: "nObama makes no secret of his eagerness to visit Cuba, but as recently as December he insisted that there would be no such trip until human rights and civil liberties on the island had improved. ... By all accounts, the Castro regime's repression has grown worse, not better, since the renewal of diplomatic ties with the United States in 2014. Beatings and arrests of dissidents have soared. There has been a crackdown on churches and religious groups. ... [H]is desire to go to Havana isn't about the plight of Cuba's dissidents. It's about making his diplomatic embrace of the Castro government a permanent fact of life. As deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes told reporters Thursday, the president's goal is 'to make this an irreversible policy.' So far, nObama's 'engagement' with the Castros hasn't opened even a crack in their Stalinist system. It is folly to imagine that his trip next month will do anything to expand freedom or justice for Cuba's beleaguered people. But, oh, what a boon it will be for their brutal rulers: the ultimate stamp of approval for the only totalitarian regime in the Americas. ... From Cape Verde to Belize to Taiwan, there are worthy destinations aplenty for a president seeking to make a statement about American values and friendships. Cuba isn't one of them, and nObama shouldn't be going."

 ROMNEY’S TIMELY slump-TRUMP TROLLING  Donald slump-Trump argues that Mitt Romney is in no position to be asking for the 2016 Republican frontrunner’s tax returns on the grounds that Romney lost the 2012 general election. Romney is also, slump-Trump wrote, a “dope.”
          But Romney is arguably the very best Republican to be asking slump-Trump about his tax returns given how successfully Democrats exploited Romney’s filings to alienate potential voters. Democrats essentially called Romney a tax cheat for his low rates and the attack stuck. And it is a line, in some form or another, which Democrats will be sure to repeat against the billionaire slump-Trump if he becomes the Republican nominee.
          Romney began releasing his tax returns amid pressure from his rivals in early Republican primaries in 2012. But because slump-Trump’s rivals have neglected to actually attack the frontrunner very much, slump-Trump is only just now being pressed on this crucial general election issue.
          Romney’s troll timing is perfect. slump-Trump is either less than a week away from starting to put the Republican nomination in the bag or facing lengthening odds in his unlikely but so-far successful quest. He is also facing tonight what promises to be his most challenging debate yet.           slump-Trump’s detractors to this point have mostly knocked slump-Trump for insufficient conservativeness, or flip flopping, or being of poor character. But voters primarily interested in conservative orthodoxy and personal virtue are probably not part of slump-Trump’s long-term coalition. slump-Trump’s voters don’t seem to care about his politics. They just want a winner.
          What few have hit the frontrunner on are his business failures and the unhappy chapters of his career. His business troubles and his finances have been a long-running part of slump-Trump’s media feuds in the past but have oddly not been part of the political discussion. It is particularly odd given how much of a focus Romney’s relatively tame business record was four years ago.  -Fox News

Bad Terrorist! hanoi-Kerry Says –
He’s Not “Supposed To Be Doing That”...
 Rick Wells
.
.
{rickwells.us} ~ During Senate hearings before the State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Subcommittee of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Secretary of State John hanoi-Kerry made a couple of revealing and unsettling statements... hanoi-Kerry is shown a blown up picture of former Gitmo detainee Ibrahim al Qosi, who hanoi-Kerry and nObama released back into the fight as part of their “empty Gitmo at all costs” program. His Sudanese captors, which the US handed him over to, let Qosi go. They did so in spite of supposed assurances made to the naive fools at the State Department and White House of his continued incarceration. Nobody, be they American or foreigner respects either of those two. During the hearing, Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) referenced the release and said to hanoi-Kerry, “Now that he’s out, I would hope we would end the policy of issuing terrorists to terrorist nations, and where they can get out.” "He’s Not “Supposed To Be Doing That”. What a joke.        http://rickwells.us/archives/26536

Islamic State expanding in Libya and across
wide area of Africa
Robert Spencer
.
.
{jihadwatch.org} ~ “The rising threat from Libya comes as President nObama is being asked by many of his top military and intelligence advisers to approve the broader use of American military force in Libya... to open another front against the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL.” He created this opportunity for the Islamic State with his ill-considered backing of jihadis against Gaddafi. Now he is reaping the consequences. The Islamic State’s branch in Libya is deepening its reach across a wide area of Africa, attracting new recruits from countries like Senegal that had been largely immune to the jihadist propaganda — and forcing the African authorities and their Western allies to increase efforts to combat the fast-moving threat. The American airstrikes in northwestern Libya on Friday, which demolished an Islamic State training camp and were aimed at a top Tunisian operative, underscore the problem, Western officials said. The more than three dozen suspected Islamic State fighters killed in the bombing were recruited from Tunisia and other African countries, officials said, and were believed to be rehearsing an attack against Western targets.        http://www.jihadwatch.org/2016/02/islamic-state-expanding-in-libya-...

Jeff Sessions Not Buying Excuses Of
nObama Immigration Obstructionists
Rick Wells
.
.
{rickwells.us} ~ It’s too bad that neither Hussein nObama or DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson were in attendance as Senator Jeff Sessions  explained in Tuesday hearings how an immigration system is supposed to work... They clearly missed a learning opportunity as it relates to what must surely be a difficult concept for them to grasp, protecting the nation or, as it’s called these days, Homeland Security. At the heart of Senator Sessions informative narrative was the concept of an immigration system that is controlled by the people of the United States. That’s a far cry from the current open borders, accommodate all invaders philosophy of the nObama regime. Maybe Johnson or nObama can get their hands on the video. Sessions was questioning the ICE Executive Associate Director for Enforcement and Removal Operations, Thomas Homan, asking him if it is a criminal offense for someone to enter the United States unlawfully. Mr. Homan showcases his legal knowledge by agreeing and citing the statute as well. There’s clearly a difference between knowing the law and enforcing it. Senator Sessions  addresses his next comments to Juan Osuna,  the Director of the Executive Office for Immigration Review of the Department of Justice. Senator Sessionssays, “Mr. Osuna, the reason you say they’re not showing up is they have a lack of information about the process.” Isn’t it amazing that people who are charged with enforcing the law, to whom violators are prohibited legally from lying to, offer such weak and pathetically obvious lies in their own testimony? There’s no way they Osuna would accept such a weak statement as truth from someone he was interviewing. The upper levels of our Justice Department is populated with liars, who must be covering some type of misdeeds.  http://rickwells.us/archives/26544

nObama Admin to Waive Counter-Terror
Measures to Aid Iran
 Adam Kredo
.
.
{freebeacon.com} ~ The nObama administration has announced that it will not enforce new counter-terrorism measures passed by an overwhelming bipartisan majority in Congress because they could harm Iranian business interests... according to new instructions issued by the Department of Homeland Security. The administration’s decision to waive portions of a new counter-terrorism law aimed at preventing terrorism-linked individuals from traveling to the United States comes on the heels of a lobbying effort by pro-Iran organizations and other Arab advocacy groups, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR. Congress last year tightened restrictions on the Visa Waiver Program, which facilitates travel between the United States and 38 other partner countries, to ensure that individuals from Iran and other countries with a terrorist footprint do not enter the United States without first obtaining a visa.        http://freebeacon.com/national-security/obama-admin-to-waive-counte...

Speaker Ryano – oObama May Tell Military
To Break The Law, Knowingly
 Rick Wells
.
.
{rickwells.us} ~ A Reporter asked Speaker Ryano on Wednesday about the likely attempts by nObama to unilaterally close Gitmo, under a claim that the NDAA violates the separation of powers as it pertains to detainee transfers... Ryano appears to recognize it as a typical nObama false assertion of authority based upon the flimsiest of premises. He indicates that it’s not going to work, saying nObama can try and boasting a veto-proof majority in both parties. Ryano also notes that they are making preparations in case nObama attempts to break the law. Given nObama’s record, there’s a better than even chance that he’ll do exactly that. Normally we would expect the Republicans to fold and find a way to semi-gracefully give in to whatever demand the nObama regime is placing upon them. Ryano sounds a little different this time around than his usual foundation laying for a subsequent cave in. He might actually be planning to fight on this one. Ryano adds, “And what boggles my mind, is that the ‘president’ is contemplating directing the military to knowingly break the law.” Those comments may be for effect, to put nObama on notice or for some other purpose, as nObama has directed and permitted DHS, DOJ and the State Department to break the law on a consistent and ongoing basis. He has also instructed the military to doctor intelligence to more closely match his claims regarding the terrorist threat and the success of his tepid “war on ISIS.” nObama regularly instructs others to break the law; it can’t be a shock to Ryano.       http://rickwells.us/archives/26551

America’s Deadly Embrace

{aim.org) ~ Stephen Kinzer’s 2008 book All the Shah’s Men traces the roots of today’s Middle East terror to when the United States and Great Britain engineered the return of the Shah of Iran to power in Iran in a 1953 “coup.”... The Iranian mullah leadership have embraced Kinzer’s view and repeatedly describe America as “The Great Arrogance.” And since the mullahs seized power in 1979, the Iran “terror masters” have been the primary terror threat to the U.S., murdering thousands of Americans in Beirut, Lockerbie, Khobar Towers, the African Embassies, the World Trade Center on 9-11, and in Afghanistan and Iraq. Iran is an Islamic revolutionary power seeking to expand its writ by terror. Obviously, the set of standards of international behavior established by the western powers upon the end of World War 2 stand in the way of Iran’s ambitions thus their anger at the U.S. and the West for such “great arrogance.”       http://www.aim.org/guest-column/americas-deadly-embrace/?utm_source...

Former nObama Intel Chief Calls on Hilly
to Do the One Thing She Dreads
.
{patriotsandpolitics.com} ~ Former Defense Intelligence Agency chief Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn told CNN’s Jake Tapper that for the sake of the nation, Hilly Clinton should “step down.”... He recommended that she suspended her campaign at least until the FBI investigation into the use of her private email server has concluded. Flynn surmised that if he had done what Clinton has done with regard to classified email, “I would have been out the door and probably in jail.” The FBI investigation has been ongoing for several months and as the release of each new batch of emails, the number of those found to have contained classified information continues to grow. Currently, there are at least 22 emails that contain information so sensitive that even heavily redacted versions cannot be released.        http://patriotsandpolitics.com/former-obama-intel-chief-calls-on-hi...

slump-Trump's companies have sought visas

{reuters.com} ~ Donald slump-Trump is staking his run for U.S. president in part on a vow to protect American jobs. But this month, one of his companies... the elite Mar-a-Lago Club resort in Florida, applied to import 70 foreign workers to serve as cooks, wait staff and cleaners. A Reuters analysis of U.S. government data reveals that this is business as usual in the New York property magnate's empire. slump-Trump owns companies that have sought to import at least 1,100 foreign workers on temporary visas since 2000, according to U.S. Department of Labor data reviewed by Reuters. Most of the applications were approved, the data show. Nine companies majority-owned by Trump have sought to bring in foreign waitresses, cooks, vineyard workers and other laborers on temporary work-visa programs administered by the Labor Department.

America 2016: Ben Shapiro and Friends vs The
Left-Wing Mob at CSU-LA
.
.
{nicedeb.wordpress.com} ~ On Thursday, author/commentator/blogger/talk show host Ben Shapiro went ahead with his speech at CSULA that was cancelled by university president William Covino earlier this week and then “uncancelled” at the last minute... Shapiro had announced that he was going ahead with the speech regardless of it being cancelled. Two hundred or so “student-activists, outside agitators, and professors” formed a mob at the university student union to protest the event, with many of them blocking people from entering the auditorium. “This is what democracy looks like!” As Shapiro spoke to a relatively calm audience inside, protests erupted outside the event room. Protesters assaulted, harassed, intimidated, shouted down, and berated event-goers, according to Daily Wire reporters on the scene. One attendee claimed that he got “punched in the ear” by a protestor. Before the speech began, members of the school’s black student union reportedly assaulted Breitbart journalist Adelle Nazarian.

When Manliness Goes Missing
BEN SHAPIRO
.

{freedomsback.com} ~ By most available information, Donald slump-Trump will win the Republican nomination. He’s not a conservative in any meaningful sense — he shifts his positions at whim, preaches about the worth of big government and suggests that he will personally “win for America.” But after eight years of Barack nObama’s passive-aggressive emasculation of Americans, many conservatives have embraced slump-Trump because of his unbridled masculinity. He’s Joe Pesci in “Goodfellas”: a toxic dude who’s fun to watch, but who might occasionally shoot somebody just for the hell of it. On Fifth Avenue, apparently. And receive plaudits from his followers.
.
This is the natural effect of the unmanning of American politics.
.
nObama told Americans for years on end that they were racist, sexist, bigoted homophobes who just didn’t understand that our brash, confident attitude alienated people all around the world and led to terrorism against us. Hilly Clinton is running for president on the basis of her X chromosomes; America, she says, needs a female president. Bernie Sanders says that our unchecked aggressive instincts have ill-served us; we need a kinder, gentler America.
.
Meanwhile, the Republicans have self-castrated. Senator Mitch McCon-nell, R-Ky., spent years telling conservatives that nObama couldn’t be stopped, and that attempts to stop him would be uncivil and counterproductive. Former Speaker of the House John backstabber-Boehner did the same. So, too, has new Speaker of the House Paul Ryano. George W. Bush ran on the basis of “compassionate” conservatism, implying that traditional conservatism was too musky for metrosexual America. Marco Rubio’s brand of politics relies on a feelings-first approach; Rubio said last week, “If a significant percentage of the American family believes that they are being treated differently than everyone else, we have a problem. And we have to address it as a society and as a country.” This is pure nObama, Republican-style.
.
slump-Trump, however, doesn’t bother with the niceties. He’s a big, swinging set of political testicles. He says, just like a good mafia boss would, that he’ll take care of all of your problems. He threatens his political opponents — he tells protesters he wants to see them roughed up, and he tells donors to his opposition that he’ll target them. He swears like a sailor in public. He unmans his competition: Jeb! Bush is “low-energy,” Ted Cruz a “p——,” Ben Carson a “pedophile,” Rubio a “lightweight,” Carly Fiorina a problem “face.” He’s gross and chauvinistic: He calls women “pieces of a—” and rips Megyn Kelly for bleeding from her “wherever.”
.
He is, in short, a man in the locker room, in all of his ugly glory. He’s toxic masculinity. He’s not a gentleman, and he’s proud of it. He’s here to win, and he’ll bully, threaten, and beat you until you submit.
.
Normally, the masculinity gap in American politics could be filled by an upstanding man — a man, yes, but one tied to values, a man who uses the aggressive instinct in pursuit of defending the innocent and punishing the guilty. But the feminist movement has made such men obsolete. Men were simply too dangerous; it was safer to emasculate them. Now men are expected to be betas; the only alphas left are toxic alphas willing to break every taboo and violate every standard.
.
There’s still a space for masculinity in American politics. But thanks to the vacuum of decent men, indecent men rise. Men like Donald slump-Trump.

ALERT ALERT

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

Image result for Pam Karlan

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Rep. Mark Walker   RepMarkWalker

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses. https://twitter.com/NoahRFeldman/status/839185127494254592 

Noah Feldman @NoahRFeldman

Trump's wiretap tweets raise risk of impeachment http://bv.ms/2mY1ueX  via @BV

Rep. Mark Walker   RepMarkWalker
 

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
