As Ben Carson falls from favor in the Republican cast of thousands, two leaders seem to be emerging; Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.
These two candidates are quite diverse, but one thing they have in common is Sarah Palin.
Trump has already said he’d put Sarah in the White House.
Cruz recognizes that he wouldn’t have been elected but for Sarah Palin.
So the frightening thing is that if either Cruz or Trump earns the GOP nomination either may put Palin in a position of authority. The good news is that even the polls that show the rise of Cruz and Trump document that they are still unpopular with women.
In 2008 the majority of women didn’t vote for McCain because he picked a woman as his running mate. They voted against him because he chose a woman as a running mate because she was a woman, and didn’t seem to care that she was ignorant and unqualified. If Trump or Cruz associate themselves with her, they do so at their peril.
I didn’t suggest a database-a reporter did. We must defeat Islamic terrorism & have surveillance, including a watch list, to protect America
Whatever your political party, whether you are Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative, hopefully you understand that we can never allow someone who is so willing to lie to the American people, especially about his willingness to violate our fundamental constitutional rights! Tell everyone you know, that we deserve better. Trump may be fun to watch on television, on a show produced in a studio. He should never be allowed to broadcast from the White House, representing America.
Over 100 people were brutally killed yesterday in France. At least 180 people survived, but are today struggling to overcome painful injuries. The civilized world shares the outrage and the anguish of the people of France. Unfortunately, France has not been a stranger to terrorist attacks.
The President of France has declared that these acts of terrorism constitute an act of WAR.
President Obama gave a press conference and declared the terrorists attacks in France to be an attack on humanity. He declare that the United States was prepared to provide whatever assistance might be needed to the people of France. President Obama was purposeful and brief in his remarks. He was not bombastic and declined to make any threats of retaliation that my be forthcoming. He was presidential. He was the leader we hoped he would be at this time of crisis. He was calm, and in control. The importance of his demeanor and message can’t not be underestimated. The most important job of the President of the United States must be to protect the security of our nation.
As we approach the presidential election season, it is critical that Americans don’t lose sight of the importance of electing a leader who is qualified to protect our National Security. It must be a person who will do what is best for America, rather than what is best for his/her political party or what will play well on national television. We must find a candidate that possesses leadership skills. We need a person who is a critical thinker. We need a person who will be respected by the international community. It is critical to the future of America that we elect a leader who is trustworthy and honest. When the President of the United States says something, it is important the our allies and our enemies believe what the President says.
It’s been 7 years since we were plagued with a leader that was ignorant, inept, and a liar. We should never forget the damage he did to America.
Surely we will remember the “intentional misrepresentations,” or the “reckless indifference to the truth.”
We will each say a prayer for the victims in France. However prayers are not enough. It is the responsibility of every American to seek and support candidates for office who are honest, trustworthy, and knowledgeable about foreign affairs. We should only consider social issues AFTER we determine that a candidate has the necessary Presidential “gravitas” to be the leader of the free world. When we consider what America would have been like under the leadership of President Palin, or what it could be like under the guidance of Donald Trump, it is clear that America’s future is not secure.
Join me in demanding that Americans seek and find the best candidates to lead our country. We should all seek the very best and most qualified candidates, Republican and Democrat, that can be found. It is only in that event that we will remain the leader of the free world.
During the 2008 election, Hillary aired a commercial about who would best handle the call that might come at 3:00 o’clock in the morning.
Hillary might break out the same ad in 2016 if Ben Carson gets the Republican nomination. Hillary might be trying to suggest that Ben Carson might not know the names of world leaders who might be calling him. HOwever there seems to be a real question about whether Ben Carson might be able to keep his eyes open long enough to convince a foreign leader that he was awake. The current leader in the GOP polls is Ben Carson.
You probably already knew that he doesn’t believe in evolution.
He thinks evolution was derived from the devil.
You probably already knew that Ben Carson thinks being gay is a choice, and that heterosexual people who go into prison come out gay.
You probably knew that he thinks the Affordable Care Act is the worst thing to happen to America since slavery. In fact he said it IS slavery.
You probably knew that Mr. Carson compares women who have abortions to slave owners, who had the right to do with a slave anything they wanted.
You probably knew that Mr. Carson said that Jews could have prevented WWII if they’d had guns.
You probably knew that Ben Carson advocated for the censorship of “extreme political bias” on college campuses, saying the Department of Education should “monitor our institutions of higher education for extreme political bias and deny federal funding if it exists.”
Remember when Mr. Carson said the Muslims should not be allowed to run for President.
Mr. Carson said that Congress should be able to remove Supreme Court judges who vote in favor of gay marriage.
Mr. Carson said that if the anarchy is allowed to continue in the country as it has, the 2016 election might be cancelled.
You probably haven’t visited the official web site of Mr. Carson. You probably didn’t know there is a section entitled “Ben on the Road.” This is part of Mr. Carson’s campaign web site, where the organizers of his campaign choose the content. They choose the most flattering pictures. I want to do my part. These are the best images they could find of Mr. Carson “on the road.” When the call comes in at 3:00 pm to President Carson, do you think he’d be asleep?
Three days ago, November 3rd, the media reported the outrage over the Republicans who felt they had been treated unfairly by the liberal media. It was not the elimination of candidates by the liberal media, but the type of questions posed to those who appeared on stage. Now the GOP is allowing Fox Business Network to determine the outcome for certain candidates in the 2016 GOP Primary. George Pataki and Lindsey Graham HAVE BEEN CUT FROM THE LINEUP. Let me say that again, two GOP candidates have been ELIMINATED from the debate completely. While this decision may not technically violate the Equal Time Rule, it certainly violates the spirit of the rule. For the Republican Party to allow Fox News to dictate who will not be a viable Presidential contender, one year before the election, is outrageous! It is especially troublesome when the top contenders in national polls are people like Donald Trump,the candidate who has filed bankruptcy for his corporations four times, and Ben Carson, the candidate who believes the pyramids were built to store grain.
While George Pataki and Lindsey Graham might not have had a realistic chance of success, Chris Christie and Mike Huckabee have also been eliminated from the main stage in next week’s debate.
Steve Duprey, the chairman of the Republican National Committee’s debate subcommittee, expressed frustration with the criteria used by Fox. Fox has ignored candidates’ standing in early-voting states where they spend most of their time.
“When you do debates based on national polls, it undermines the ability of a lesser-known, lesser-funded candidate to get traction,”he explained. Duprey reported that Democrat Bill Clinton or Republican John McCain could have struggled to emerge under the current system.
The outrage is that the election of the President of the United States has been co-opted by national media. It is no longer about Democrat vs. Republican, or liberal vs. conservative. It is all about who can generate ratings for the networks. Given that criterion, it is no wonder that Trump has emerged as a viable candidate. It is no wonder that Sarah Palin has been a thorn in the side of America for the last 7 years. Every American should be concerned. I’m not a member of the Republican Party, but it makes sense to me that the Party should decide which candidates would participate if there are too many in the race. Ratings would result in leaders who are not leaders, but interesting to watch.
