Roger Stone: RNC Has War Room To Take Out Trump


In an appearance on CNN on Wednesday, former Donald Trump advisor and longtime Republican operative Roger Stone said the Republican National Committee (RNC) has a war room to take out the Republican presidential candidate.

"You suggest the RNC has a secret war room now making plans to take out Donald Trump. Do you really believe that?" CNN's John Berman asked Stone.

"I really do," Stone said. "They want a candidate in the form of Jeb Bush, who's running behind Trump and much more behind Hillary Clinton or Chris Christie or John Kasich. Yes, that's what they would prefer."

"Give us another loser like John McCain," he added.

"Look, I talk to a lot of reporters, sometimes off the record," Stone explained. "Sometimes, when I say to them, where did you get this hit piece of information, they'll tell me, oh, the sources was the Republican National Committee. Come on. This is the game. It's the way it works."

Biden's not ready to run... not yet, he says on Colbert's show


Vice President Joe Biden Interview, Part 1


Such a fantastic interview, if not one of the best I've ever seen on late night. Colbert is having a fucking superb opening week, love everything about the new Late Show so far and I hope this kind of sincerity and honesty continues with future guests as well. It's just so nice to see something different in late night and not the typical celebrity circlejerk of stupid games and boring by the book interviews about kids or the celebrities upcoming movie. That being said, I can't wait for the Trump interview, it's gonna be hilarious

Washington Post - ‎4 hours ago‎
While you were otherwise occupied enjoying a lovely autumn weekend, apple picking and football watching and what have you, Donald Trump and Jeb Bush were engaged in a very silly fight - one that revealed a problem for Bush, but not the one you might ...
. . .

Incensed, Jeb Bush tweeted that Trump was "pathetic" for that critique. Trump, who never saw a Twitter fight he didn't want to win, has tweeted or retweeted about Bush, his GOP presidential challenger, 18 times since, including a "no, you're pathetic" rejoinder and a much-retweeted question about George W. Bush's foreign policy decisions:

The left, which has been asking questions similar to that one for years, ate it up. Think Progress offered a snarky analysis of whether George Bush was, as Trump claimed, president during 9/11. (Verdict: He was.) At Vox, Ezra Klein declared that Trump had identified "Jeb Bush's greatest weakness as a candidate" — Iraq — by pointing to a Bush interview on CNN that Klein decreed "almost physically painful to watch."

This is the snippet.



Bush starts off slowly — and that's meant literally. If you watch the clip in the full context of the interview, you see that Bush's responses generally were a bit time-delayed, probably because he appeared remotely.

Hillary Clinton is still a terrible candidate
In-Depth-The Week Magazine-13 hours ago
Hail the conquering Hillary?
Even in that debate, one can imagine the attack lines.

Clinton asked the audience to consider what she's "accomplished in the Senate, as secretary of of state, and then draw your own conclusion." A Republican might actually point out that when she asks us to fill in the blanks, it's because that record is mostly blank. Or bad. In the debate she referred to the U.S. intervention in Libya as "smart power at its best." Surely Jeb Bush could point out that Libya is now plagued by the Islamic State, and anarchy reigns there to such a degree that it is now one of the major veins through which a refugee crisis flows into Europe. Clinton called for "a new New Deal for communities of color," which sounds almost exactly like the kind of phrase you might use in the 1950s. Rubio, who says that he is the candidate of tomorrow, will not let her get away with hawking 80-year old policy ideas.

Clinton has never beaten a first-class opponent. And nothing in her recent campaign should cause us to forget it.

The missing debate candidate (Hint: It's not Biden)


Wednesday, 14 Oct 2015 | 10:55 AM ETCNBC.com

During the first Democratic debate, Americans were introduced to three "new" faces: Martin O'Malley, Lincoln Chafee, and Jim Webb. But there was one candidate absent from the stage – and I'm not talking about Vice President Joe Biden. The missing candidate was Larry Lessig.

Larry who? An acclaimed attorney and Harvard law professor who has written several bestselling books, Lessig entered the race for the democratic nomination in early September after raising over $1 million in campaign donations (Chafee raised only $29,000 in the first half of 2015).

Lessig is running to draw attention to the corrupting power of money in politics. Since last night's debate was hosted in Las Vegas, near a casino owned by Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire backer of republican candidates in years past, it would have been a timely opportunity for Lessig to highlight his signature issue. But he wasn't included.

I asked Lessig about the omission and his candidacy over the phone. "Historically, democratic debates have not excluded people," he said, pointing to the participation of Rev. Al Sharpton and Carol Moseley-Braun in the debates for the democratic nomination in the 2004 presidential election.

Biographer: Hillary Cackling about Email Scandal ‘Is What Makes Her So Darn Unlikeable’

Hillary Clinton biographer Ed Klein said Clinton’s bizarre cackling when asked about her email scandal last Friday on CNN proves that she has a “distorted sense of reality” and is what makes her “so darn unlikeable.”

3rd Debate LOSER




For a campaign that began as a sure bet for the Republican nomination, Bush's White House bid could not have appeared in more dire straits than it did Wednesday.

But hey, at least Bush is 7-0 in his fantasy football league. Silver linings.

Even without Trump's consistent attacks that Bush is too "low-energy" to be president, Bush appeared to fade away into the background as other candidates jostled with the moderators as they eyed every opportunity to inject themselves into the debate.

When he did go on offense with a targeted barb against Rubio's voting attendance record, he failed to jump back in after Rubio deflected the attack -- giving Rubio the win on what could have been a strong moment for the former governor who desperately needed a breakout moment.

Even some of his fiercest backers, like CNN political commentator Ana Navarro, couldn't hide their disappointment.

"I'm pretty damn glum tonight," Navarro said after the debate. "(Bush has) gotta take the next 10 days...to really figure out how to dominate in the debates."

Bush addressed the criticism later Thursday night in an interview with CNN's Dana Bash, saying: "I'm running for president. If they're looking for entertainer in chief, I'm probably not the guy."

BOULDER, Colo. — Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign was at an inflection point Thursday as the candidate faced a choice of sticking with his long-term strategy or yielding to criticism from supporters and senior Republicans who are demanding fundamental changes to his sputtering candidacy.

Significant concerns about Bush’s performance were magnified on the debate stage here Wednesday night, and the former Florida governor awoke to his harshest criticism yet. Bush faces the real possibility that a substantial amount of money and momentum will move to Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) as the party’s mainstream conservative wing’s favored candidate unless he moves quickly to rebalance his candidacy.


“I could have done better,” Bush conceded on a conference call Thursday afternoon with top donors and state chairs, according to a person who participated.

His debilitating performance was for many allies a cause for alarm. He sowed serious doubts about his ability to effectively prosecute the case against not only his Republican rivals but also the potential Democratic nominee, Hillary Rodham Clinton, in what is expected to be a brutal general-election campaign.

Election 2016: Jeb Bush's Chief Operating Officer Is Out As His Poll Ratings Plummet

International Business Times‎ - 14 hours ago
The presidential campaign of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has lost Chief Operating Officer ...

The news comes as the Bush campaign announced plans to cut salaries by 40 percent. Ciccone was paid around $12,000 a month or about $144,000 a year.

“We are grateful to have had Christine on the team, we respect her immensely,” Bush spokesman Tim Miller told the Journal.

Ciccone has a long relationship with the Bush family. She previously worked in the President George W. Bush administration as a liaison to the Senate.

. . .

The conventional wisdom was that Bush needed a strong performance in the third GOP primary debate Wednesday in Boulder, Colorado -- and failed to deliver. Now political observers are questioning how long the former front-runner can stay in the race.

"Jeb Bush's presidential campaign is facing a full-blown existential crisis," wrote CNN's Stephen Collinson. "The former Florida governor's attempt to revive his White House hopes during Wednesday's Republican debate by taking on his former protege, Sen. Marco Rubio, backfired badly. Instead, he delivered a performance drained of passion, fire and inspiration followed by a testy post-game interview that added up to a disastrous night for Bush."

Pundits described the campaign as terminal.

"The most significant story from last night is that Jeb Bush's campaign now finds itself on life support, especially after Bush swung and missed when trying to hit Rubio over his Senate voting record," wrote NBC News. "As one Republican operative told NBC's Peter Alexander, Bush had to demonstrate to his supporters and donors — after a rough last few weeks — that the former Florida governor could land a punch, particularly after telegraphing to the political world that it was coming. But Bush missed. Badly."

The Weekly Standard's headline went even further: "Jeb's Dead."

Borrowing from Biden




Poll: Hillary Clinton Hits 50 Percent Support


With Biden no longer asked about, Clinton's numbers have inched higher, pushing her back to the 50 percent mark among voters who are Democratic or lean Democratic, for the first time since we began polling on the primary race back in April. But Sanders continues to hold onto a solid segment of the Democratic electorate, getting the backing of 30 p ercent leaned Democratic voters. Martin O'Malley and Larry Lessig, with just 1 percent support, have not been able to make a dent in their levels of support.

DUMP TRUMP? What Stupidity!


But maybe this will lead to a viable third party


US Republicans move to dump Trump


The republicans, the party of Israel+first deserved to be shreaded to non-existence if they dump their Great White Hope


By Michael Mathes 6 hours ago

Washington (AFP) - Many say the populist crazy talk is typical of the White House primaries, but Republican frontrunner Donald Trump's increasingly incendiary remarks are leading some conservatives to brand him a "fascist" and party rivals to ramp up attacks against him.


Most spectacularly, the real estate tycoon recently said he would support registering Muslims in a database, and insisted -- despite lacking any evidence -- he saw Arabs in New Jersey cheer when the Twin Towers fell on 9/11.

His stance has become so belligerent that voices are asking, even inside his party, whether he is committed to democratic values.

Republican experts are warning that Trump could do lasting damage to the GOP, and that his nomination in the party primaries would essentially hand the presidency to Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

Several campaign teams in the primary race now appear to be coalescing around the need to oppose the celebrity billionaire's candidacy.

Establishment conservatives even took the unfathomable step of using the F-word against a member of their own party.

"Trump is a fascist. And that's not a term I use loosely or often. But he's earned it," Max Boot, a military historian and foreign policy advisor to Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio, posted on Twitter.

"Forced federal registration of US citizens, based on religious identity, is fascism. Period," added John Noonan, a national security advisor to former Florida governor Jeb Bush.

In its Tuesday editorial the New York Times said the past week of the campaign had been "dominated by Donald Trump's racist lies."

The Seattle Times used similarly strong language in a Wednesday editorial that denounced Trump's "button-pushing lie after button-pushing lie."


"Trump's campaign message reflects a kind of creeping fascism," the paper said. "It needs to be rejected."

Some campaigns have seemed reluctant to directly take on the Trump machine.

But Bush, struggling to gain traction in the race, piled on, telling Fox News Wednesday that Trump has been creating "an alternative universe" with his harsh rhetoric, particularly about Muslims.

"He doesn't know what he's talking about," Bush said of Trump's assertion that thousands of people were cheering on 9/11.

- 'Defeat and destroy' -

Many Republicans like New Jersey Governor Chris Christie have argued that the climate sparked by the Paris attacks would lead voters towards experienced politicians -- not an untested commander in chief such as Trump.

But Trump's campaign has shown extraordinary resilience, and "the Donald" remains atop all major new polls despite fact-checkers debunking many of his statements.

"They say that Trump can do almost anything, and nobody leaves me. And it is true," Trump said at a rally Tuesday in South Carolina.

Maybe we need a few more people called fascist to battle poor leadership in Washington


Creating 'an alternative universe" may really mean creating a viable third party.

Cruz up, but Bush is fading fast



There's no good news in the poll for Bush, who despite his political pedigree as the son and brother of past presidents and a massive campaign war chest, has moved up only slightly since October, to 6 percent from 5 percent, and is in fifth place. The super political action committee supporting Bush has been by far the largest political ad buyer in Iowa, Kantar/CMAG data shows.

Bush's negatives are the highest of any candidate in the field and at an all-time high in the state, with 54 percent of likely Republican caucus-goers viewing him unfavorably. That's up from 43 percent in October. He also recorded his highest level of likely caucus-goers who say they could never support him, 41 percent. "Based on this data, it's hard to keep Bush in the picture," Selzer said.

Cruz’s new front-runner status in Iowa has been accompanied by a jump in his favorability rating, now an all-time high of 73 percent, the highest in the Republican field. That could come as a surprise to members of Washington's establishment, who have shown disdain for him and complained that his three years there have been marked by showmanship, inflexibility and a lack of collegiality.

Omnibus Spending Bill Takes Aim At Hillary-Like Email Setups
Daily Caller-8 hours ago

Those concerns that Hillary Clinton's private email server had classified intel? They're apparently well-founded. Sources for Fox News and Politico maintain that two of the messages sent to Clinton were labeled as "top secret" when fresh. One of them was eventually reduced to "secret," but critics say that's beside the point: they're worried that the email wasn't subject to tougher government security standards, and could have been compromised.

Whether or not the messages are a legal problem for Clinton and her presidential election campaign are another matter. The FBI is still investigating whether or not the politician violated the law by running her own server instead of funneling everything through official channels. Any findings of illegality may well derail Clinton's campaign, but a declaration of innocence could easily thwart further attacks.
. . .
After months in which Hillary Clinton downplayed the significance of the emails she sent as secretary of state using her private email server, two intelligence agencies have delivered the verdict.

The Democratic presidential candidate used a private server that was ill-protected against hackers to send “top secret” documents regarding North Korean missiles and a drone strike, the CIA and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) have ruled, according to Fox News.
. . .
Clinton’s server contained more than 1,000 now-classified emails, as well as at least two emails that the intelligence community determined contained information that was “top secret” when the messages were sent. It is now in the possession of the FBI, which is investigating the matter.
