    The Donald "Ringer" Trump Event.

    MY PREDICTION: "Trump takes a DIVE in the 7th Round" - Meaning after Bush Solidifies the Nomination. IF Trump Wins he will then find a way to Drop the Ball(not unlike Romney) and take the Dive in the Last Round to Elite Bilderberg/CFR/Goldman Sachs Backed 2016 President of the UNITED STATES Corp. Hitlery R Cinton.


    Enemy of the Blue State

    Rand Paul = Democrats’ Enemy #1

    The senator’s broad appeal threatens to weaken Democrats for 2016, and they are going on offense—sending out no less than 10 press releases on his latest trip to Iowa.
    Democrats fundraise and campaign by exploiting concerns about right-wing extremism. But at least at the moment, what they apparently fear most is the rise of a candidate who could potentially poach enough of their supporters to beat them in 2016.

    Rand Paul has not yet formally announced he is running for the Republican nomination. But with a lead in GOP polls and already laying the foundation for the infrastructure of a campaign, the junior senator from Kentucky is considered the early front-runner, one who is transparent about his desire to appeal to a broad range of voters—and that has Democrats worried.
    For the 10th time in two years, Paul arrived on Monday in Iowa, where the first presidential caucuses will be held in 17 months, to try out his message on a three-day, multi-city, headline-generating tour.
    Over the course of the trip, the Democratic National Committee sent out 10 press releases about Paul’s every move and utterance. “What it can tell you as a political observer is that they recognize what we’re trying to point out, which is Rand is the Republican who has the best chance of keeping and energizing the base while going into their constituencies," a senior aide for Paul told The Daily Beast.
    Having only run for office the one time, in 2010, Paul is not the most experienced of campaigners—so heading out early seems intended as batting practice. But as the senator is the only likely potential candidate so publicly engaging in this sort of preliminary campaigning, there has been no way for him to practice unnoticed. While he has been testing the waters, the left has been testing its attacks.
    Democrats began hitting Paul on Monday morning, first for fundraising with Iowa Rep. Steve King, who has entertained the idea of exploring impeachment (something Paul has said he would not consider); next for claiming he never proposed ending foreign aid to Israel (which he openly supported doing for years); and then for saying Republicans don’t want to ban birth control and that he is “in favor of the concept” of a federal ban on gay marriage.
    The most fun the DNC had, understandably, was with an incident that took place at a Monday-night fundraiser with King, when Paul was caught on video getting up—mid-bite into his hamburger—and practically running away from two immigration activists. (He gets an everyman point for taking his drink with him.)
    The DNC snarked that the senator’s swift exit was a “profile in courage” and later sent out an email detailing some of the best headlines the moment generated, including “Rand Paul Flees in Terror from Mexican Immigrant,” and “Watch Rand Paul Run for His Life Before Steve King Insults an Immigrant in Iowa.”
    A spokesman for the DNC, Michael Czin, made no secret of his glee at Paul’s troubles, tweeting:
    I hope Rand Paul never stops talking.
    — Michael Czin (@MikeCzin) August 6, 2014

    Asked if Democrats were intimated by Paul, Czin laughed, “His positions are quite scary.”
    “He’s working not to get out of the conservative box but to redefine it,” Simon Rosenberg, president of the New Democrat Network, told The Daily Beast. If Paul gets the nomination, he becomes the effective leader of his party—meaning his redefinition of that conservative box could become the definition, a problem for Democrats, as Paul has a tendency to stake out atypical positions for a conservative and reach across party lines.
    Paul has a limited-government, non-interventionist worldview that is particularly attractive after a decade of war, rampant overspending, and privacy invasions.

    He has campaigned against domestic spying and the use of drones on American citizens—memorably conducting a 13-hour filibuster in 2013 on the latter—and has criticized both Republicans and Democrats for their foreign policy. He generated headlines this year when he refused to blame recent violence in Iraq on President Obama, instead pointing a finger at the Bush administration, particularly Dick Cheney. In Iowa this week, he labeled the conflict in Libya “Hillary’s war,” providing a preview of what the general election could look like with both of them in it.

    And Paul’s determination to make the GOP more inclusive makes him much harder to vilify than conservatives who might stomp their feet at such a notion.

    He has made efforts to reach out to black voters that while met with some skepticism (he once questioned the constitutionality of certain parts of the Civil Rights Act) and cynicism have won him supporters and the acknowledgement that he is, at the very least, trying.
    “It’s blindingly obvious to [Democrats] that Rand is the Republican who can reach across the party.”

    In 2013, Paul gave a speech at Howard University that was memorable for all the wrong reasons. Critics slammed him for being condescending and “whitesplaining” by telling his audience about the history of the NAACP and the civil rights movement—not news to students at Howard. But Paul seemed to learn from the incident quickly and continued the outreach. Last month, he traveled to Cincinnati to address the Urban League.

    Along with New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, a Democrat, Paul has introduced a plan to overhaul the criminal justice system with the REDEEM Act. The measure is intended to, in Paul’s words, fix the “cycle of poverty and incarceration” by, among other things, sealing or expunging the criminal records of juveniles. The senators’ partnership has won high-profile fans like musician John Legend.

    And policies aside, Paul has the benefit of not being embroiled in any serious scandals—something that cannot be said for many of the other likely Republican nominees. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker are all entangled in scandals of varying degrees of seriousness in their home states. So far, the most damaging thing anyone has uncovered from Paul’s past was his membership in a secret society in college that took part in hijinks like worshipping a satirical deity named Aqua Buddha.

    The Democrats’ strategy to defeat Paul seems to be to engage him as he tries to gain experience, with the hope that he’ll misspeak his candidacy to death before it gets off the ground. “This is smart politics for the Democrats,” Rosenberg told The Daily Beast. “What you want to do as opposition is you want to go after the candidates when they’re inexperienced…We saw a deeply inexperienced candidate [in Iowa]...and a lot of early scrutiny could really weaken him.”

    Or so the left is hoping.

    “It’s kind of dangerous to have a Republican like Rand,” said the senior Paul aide. “It’s blindingly obvious to [Democrats] that Rand is the Republican who can reach across the party.”

    Donald Trump announces presidential run

    View Photos

    The real estate mogul and reality TV celebrity, announced he would seek the GOP presidential nomination.

    By Philip Rucker July 1 Follow @PhilipRucker
    For Democrats, Donald Trump amounts to a kind of divine intervention.
    With the Republican Party on an urgent mission to woo Latino voters, one of its leading presidential candidates has been enmeshed for two weeks in a nasty feud over his inflammatory comments about Mexican immigrants.
    “They’re bringing drugs,” Trump said in his campaign announcement speech. “They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”
    The comments — and many more since — have prompted an uproar among Latino groups and acrimonious breakups between Trump and various corporate partners. His outlandish rhetoric and skill at occupying the national spotlight are also proving to be dangerously toxic for the GOP brand, which remains in the rehabilitation stage after losing the 2012 presidential race.
    Univision said it would not air his Miss Universe and Miss USA beauty pageants; Trump sued the Spanish-language television network for $500 million. NBC*Universal severed all ties to him this week; he called the network “so weak and so foolish.”

    And on Wednesday, the Macy’s department store chain dumped him, saying it would no longer sell his menswear line. Trump said the retail chain had “totally caved.” Later Wednesday, Trump’s luxury hotel chain said it had been alerted to a possible credit-card breach.
    Despite — or perhaps because of — such antics, the flashy real estate mogul with a big bank account and an even bigger ego has rocketed into second place in recent national polls and in the early nominating states of Iowa and New Hampshire.
    [Trump: ‘I’m being very nice now. I’m trying to be presidential.’]
    Hillary Rodham Clinton and other Democrats, meanwhile, are eager to make Trump the face of the Republican Party, which is momentarily leaderless with a disparate presidential field and no clear front-runner.
    “I am a person of faith — and the Donald’s entry into this race can only be attributed to the fact that the good Lord is a Democrat with a sense of humor,” exulted Paul Begala, veteran Democratic strategist and adviser to Priorities USA Action, a super PAC boosting Clinton’s candidacy.
    In Iowa, Trump is tied with Ben Carson for second place behind Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker with 10 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday. In New Hampshire, a CNN-WMUR poll last week had Trump in second place behind former Florida governor Jeb Bush with 11 percent.
    Trump also comes in second behind Bush in a new national CNN-ORC poll released Wednesday.

    Trump, who claims to be worth $9 billion, has staked out populist-sounding ground in the campaign so far, railing against the impact of illegal immigrants, particularly from Mexico, on the U.S. economy and vowing to “build a great wall on our southern border” to keep them out. That message, along with promises to restrict Chinese imports and other protectionist measures, could resonate particularly well with some white, blue-collar male voters, angry over the slow economic recovery and suspicious of elite opinion in Washington.
    Trump also has stood by his remarks tying immigrants to crime.
    “I like Mexico. I love the Mexican people. I do business with the Mexican people, but you have people coming through the border that are from all over. And they’re bad. They’re really bad,” Trump said last weekend on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “You have people coming in, and I’m not just saying Mexicans, I’m talking about people that are from all over that are killers and rapists, and they’re coming into this country.”
    [A brief history: 12 other times Donald Trump vilified illegal immigrants]
    Leading the Democratic charge to tie the GOP to Trump is Clinton, who has been invoking Trump’s comments about Mexicans on the campaign trail. Notably, she does not mention Trump by name — perhaps hoping to associate his views with the other 15 declared or likely GOP candidates.
    “Recently a Republican candidate for president described immigrants as drug dealers, rapists and criminals,” Clinton told a raucous rally in Northern Virginia last week. “Maybe he’s never met them. Maybe he’s never stopped to ask the millions of people who love this country, work hard, and want nothing more than a chance to build a better life for themselves and their children what their lives are like.”
    Other Democrats have pounced as well. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro — a descendant of Mexican immigrants seen as rising star in his party — said in a recent interview that Trump was “plainly insulting Mexicans.”
    “He will be in this campaign in many ways the face of the Republican Party, because he has higher name [identification] than almost all of them,” Castro said. “That is a very dumb way to begin a campaign.”
    [How Mexico is going to make Donald Trump pay]
    Trump and his advisers declined to comment on the record for this article.
    Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, told reporters last week that Trump’s comments were “not helpful” to the party’s efforts to reach more diverse voters. But, he added, “we don’t get to pick and choose who runs, who doesn’t.”
    Although most were initially hesitant to comment, a growing number of likely or declared GOP candidates have condemned Trump’s Mexican-bashing comments. “I think they are wholly inappropriate,” New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said last week.
    Some of the party’s firebrands, however, supported Trump. Sen. Ted Cruz (Tex.), a presidential candidate and tea party favorite, said this week that Trump was “terrific”and that he should not apologize because he “speaks the truth.” Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), a staunch conservative who plays an important role in Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucuses, said in a radio interview Wednesday that he appreciates Trump’s “scrappiness.”
    [How Donald Trump's man in Iowa plans to mess with the GOP]
    “Donald Trump is one of the few individuals that will speak boldly about what he believes in, and he’ll be challenged by the P.C. police, the politically correct police, and instead of backing up and curling up, he just goes forward,” King said on KAYL Radio in Storm Lake, Iowa.
    Clinton, though, in her Virginia speech scolded the GOP field for not speaking up more loudly to condemn Trump.
    “We need to call out derogatory language, insults, personal attacks wherever they occur,” she said. “There is enough for us to debate without going there.”
    Begala helped write Bill Clinton’s “Sister Souljah” speech in his 1992 presidential campaign when Clinton repudiated controversial comments about race by a hip-hop artist. “I know how powerful it can be to point out problems on your team,” Begala said.
    With Trump, Begala said, Republicans “don’t know what to do about him. The truth is, it’s very simple. What they say to friends in private is what they ought to say to the country in public, which is, ‘That guy’s out of line.’ ”
    David Axelrod, a former campaign strategist for President Obama, said Republican candidates must develop “a Trump strategy.”
    “You heard his opening salvos, many of which clanked and created some discomfort among Republicans,” Axelrod said. “Every Republican candidate now has to calculate how they deal with him, particularly in the debates. If he says something outrageous and no one challenges him, that’s bad for them and bad for the Republican Party.”
    The prospect of such a Trump moment in a debate invites memories of 2012 Republican primary debates that ended up becoming obstacles for the eventual nominee, Mitt Romney. In one debate, when audience members booed a gay soldier, neither Romney nor any other candidate came to his defense.
    Erik Smith, a Democratic strategist who worked on Obama’s campaigns, said the danger for Republicans is that Trump becomes “an anchor” weighing down the party’s brand, especially with Latino, millennial and independent voters.
    “The truth is this entire field is currently reinforcing their party’s worst perceptions among the voters they need the most,” Smith said. “Trump simply supercharges it. He turns the volume up to 11.”
    Some Republican strategists, however, see a silver lining.
    “You can make the argument that hyperbolic rhetoric like this paints the rest of the field as much more moderate,” said Brian Walsh, a veteran Republican operative. “It’s harder in the long run to paint Republicans like Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio as representative of the far right when that rhetorical space is being filled by someone like Donald Trump.”

    Ted Cruz is “proud to stand with Donald Trump”

    By Alana Wise
    July 10, 2015


    Donald Trump | ted cruz
    Two of the Republican Party’s most controversial figures have struck up an unlikely alliance as they both vie for the 2016 Republican Party nomination.
    Despite faring fairly well in the polls, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are still considered long shots for the GOP vote. Both candidates have made enemies within their own party. In Cruz’s case, he angered many of his Senate colleagues when he pushed a fight over Obamcare that led to a 16-day shutdown of the federal government.
    Republicans such as 2016 White House rival Jeb Bush have distanced themselves from Trump, who described illegal immigrants from Mexico as “rapists” and criminals when he launched his presidential race last month. Trump promised if elected to erect a “great wall” between the U.S. and Mexico.
    In the weeks since, Trump’s comments cost him business partners and friends from every direction including ties with Macy’s, NBC and NASCAR, in the past two weeks alone. All the while, fellow outsider Cruz has yet to jump ship.
    “I’m pleased to welcome [Donald Trump] into the race for the 2016 GOP nomination for President of the United States…” Cruz tweeted after Trump’s contentious announcement. On a later interview on “Fox and Friends,” Cruz said he liked Trump and described the former “Celebrity Apprentice” host as “terrific.”
    Throughout the losses a growing number of professional relationships, Trump has maintained a poker face, writing them off as minor and took shots at Democrats and fellow Republicans alike, accusing them of taking his comments out of context.

    The Real Rand Paul-Ted Cruz Battle Is Only Just Beginning

    While their faux rivalry soaks up media attention, the senators are moving closer to an inevitable clash.

    By Emma Roller

    March 20, 2014 Run, Ted, run.
    That's the message a new super PAC campaign, announced Wednesday, is sending to the junior senator from Texas. Sen. Ted Cruz's former regional director, Raz Shafer, announced his departure from Cruz's office to run the organization, Draft Ted Cruz for President, in the conservative blog RedState.
    "When Republicans run for the White House as conservatives, we win. When they run as moderates, we lose," Shafer wrote. "When Republicans were ready to cave on gun control in early 2013, Ted Cruz was one of the few who fought to stop it. When Republicans were ready to roll over on Obamacare, Ted Cruz refused. And when Republicans tried to deceive their constituents on the debt limit, Ted Cruz refused to go along and fought for us."
    While his former staff was encouraging him to run for the White House, Cruz was (where else?) in Iowa. He's visited the state four times in the last eight months—more than any other rumored Republican presidential contender, with one exception—Rand Paul.
    The media narrative over the past couple weeks has focused on the differences between Cruz and Paul, who are both making their presidential ambitions more and more clear. (A smart piece written by Jason Zengerle in The New Republic recently shows how Paul and Cruz have actually switched personalities since arriving in Washington.)

    And they've had some drama, at least by D.C. standards. It started when Cruz compared his foreign policy agenda to that of Ronald Reagan, and said his philosophy falls somewhere between Sen. John McCain and Paul. The next day, Paul wrote a column for Breitbart implying that hawkish Republicans like Cruz misrepresent Reagan's true vision.
    On Dana Loesch's radio show Wednesday, Cruz dispelled the drama between him and Paul. "I love Rand Paul," he told Loesch. "He is a good friend, he is a tremendous voice for liberty, and I'm proud to stand with Rand."
    During his stop in Iowa, Cruz also hit the Obama administration for having "badly bungled" the situation in Ukraine, and called school choice "the civil-rights issue of the 21st century."
    While Cruz spoke to Christian conservatives in Iowa, Paul visited the Bay Area to speak at the University of California (Berkeley)—not exactly a bastion of conservatism—about the U.S. "dystopian nightmare." And Paul's presidential ambitions are no secret, either. The Kentucky Senate recently passed a bill ensuring Paul could concurrently run for Senate and president in 2016.
    Paul has said the Republican Party should "agree to disagree" on social issues in order to welcome more voters into the fold.
    "The Republican Party is not going to give up on having quite a few people who do believe in traditional marriage," Paul told the website Vocativ. "But the Republican Party also has to find a place for young people and others who don't want to be festooned by those issues."
    Cruz begs to differ.

    Bilderberg chooses Hillary Clinton for 2016?

    Klik op de foto voor een
    vermelding van de copyrights

    (Global research) The “official” Bilderberg Group website has released a list of participants for this years upcoming conference. The website also released a list of bullet points that they claim is the agenda for the secretive globalist confab.

    In the past, Intellihub News and others have confirmed that while the list released by the Bilderberg website does include many who will be there, it also leaves out those that would rather not have their name released to the public.
    It is also well-known that whatever agenda is discussed at Bilderberg will have repercussions for the entire world for years to come (past attendees have claimed that the idea for the Euro was first discussed at Bilderberg).
    Perhaps the biggest piece of news coming out of Austria and Bilderberg 2015 so far is the fact that a major Hillary Clinton advisor is on the list and set to attend.
    Longtime Clinton friend and ally Jim Messina of The Messina Group and Clinton's Campaign Advisor will be attending the globalist conference where the globalist favorite for United States 2016 election will surely be decided. This news indicates that the powers that be have most likely decided to back Clinton for President.

    Key topics listed in the official press release include:

    • Artificial Intelligence
    • Cybersecurity
    • Chemical Weapons Threats
    • Current Economic Issue
    • European Strategy
    • Globalisation
    • Greece
    • Iran
    • Middle East
    • NATO
    • Russia
    • Terrorism
    • United Kingdom
    • USA
    • US Elections

    Given Hillary’s Criticism, Will The Clinton Foundation Return Donald Trump’s $100K Donation?

    Chuck Ross

    12:18 AM 07/09/2015

    A growing list of businesses and organizations — and now one Republican U.S. senator — have either severed ties with or returned donations from Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump because of his comments about Mexican immigrants.
    But at least one organization is holding onto The Donald’s dough, it seems. The Clinton Foundation is not saying whether it has any plans to return $100,000 the real estate mogul donated several years ago.
    Trump has come under fire for calling Mexicans “rapists” during his campaign kickoff speech last month. The first companies to cut ties with Trump were Univision and NBC Universal. Both TV companies said they will no longer air Trump’s Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants because of his remarks.
    Other companies like Macy’s and Serta, which sell Donald Trump ties and mattresses, respectively, will also end their contracts with him. NASCAR is canceling an end-of-season awards ceremony that was to be held at a Trump resort while PGA of America said it will no longer host one of its golf tournaments at a Trump course in Los Angeles.
    And on Wednesday, Nevada U.S. Sen. Dean Heller said he donated a $2,000 campaign contribution Trump gave him in March to charity. A spokesman for Heller said that he does not condone Trump’s remarks about immigrants, the Associated Press reported.
    Clinton also criticized Trump for his comments in her first national interview on Tuesday. But she did not address the money Trump has given her family charity or the dough he’s given her previous political campaigns.
    “I’m very disappointed in those comments and I feel very bad and very disappointed with him and with the Republican Party for not responding immediately and saying, ‘Enough, stop it,'” Clinton told CNN during her interview.
    “But you know they are all in the same general area on immigration.”
    Clinton said nothing about Trump’s six-figure donation to the Clinton Foundation. Nor did she address the thousands of dollars in campaign contributions Trump and his son, Donald Trump, Jr., gave her during the mid-2000s.
    The Clinton Foundation, which has raised nearly $2 billion since its inception in 2001, did not return a request for comment on whether it had plans to return the Trump money. Clinton’s campaign also did not respond to a request for comment.
    The non-profit could certainly afford to return the donation to Trump if it chose to do so. According to its 2013 financial statement, the most recent on record, the Clinton Foundation has net assets of nearly $284 million. That includes nearly $66 million in cash.
    This is not the first time the Clinton Foundation has kept a tight grip on money donated from entities that the Clintons have criticized. The organization has received millions of dollars in donations from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and United Arab Emirates, which have all been accused of widespread human-rights violations, especially against women.
    The Foundation has given no indication that those contributions will be given back to their donors despite calls from some Republican lawmakers to do so.
