PLOT THICKENS: Rubio Campaign To Blame for Carson Drop-Out Rumors

Published

on

From Conservative Review

On his radio program today, Rush Limbaugh dropped a bombshell report that the rumors of Ben Carson dropping out on Monday were actively encouraged by the Rubio campaign.

Listen:

CNN reported that Dr. Carson was on his way back to Florida after the Iowa Caucuses. Staffers working for the Cruz campaign reportedly heard the story and began telling caucus-goers Monday night that Dr. Carson planned on dropping out of the race, allegedly attempting to swing voters for Cruz.

According to Limbaugh, however, there are reports that the Rubio campaign is just as much to blame for spreading these rumors, trying to convince Carson supporters vote for Rubio.

So why is the Cruz camp being attacked from all sides while Rubio is ignored?

Because “Cruz is the frontrunner!” Limbaugh says. “They don’t think they can go after him on issues.”

RUSH: Ted Cruz has apologized for spreading the rumor that Ben Carson’s dropping out, actually apologized to Dr. Carson.

Ted Cruz apologized for his campaign statements made on the day of the Iowa caucus, implying that Carson was dropping out of the race.  “Last night when our political team saw the CNN post saying that Dr. Carson was not carrying on to New Hampshire and South Carolina, our campaign updated grassroots leaders just as we would with any breaking news story. That’s fair game. What the team then should have done was send around the follow-up statement from the Carson campaign clarifying that he was indeed staying in the race when that came out. That was a mistake from our end, and for that I apologize to Dr. Carson.”

This is an even more direct apology than what I reported to you yesterday.  But it doesn’t look like it’s enough to satisfy Dr. Carson.  During an appearance on the Fox Business Network’s After the Bell Dr. Carson responded to Cruz’s apology.  He said: “As Christians, of course we accept people’s apologies. We also have to ask ourselves is this acceptable to us, the American people, or should there be some accountability? There should be some consequences for things. You don’t just say ‘oh, okay, sorry… okay let’s move on.’ The damage was done to me, it wasn’t done to them.”

So I don’t know, what’s he saying?  That Cruz ought to fire some people?  Dr. Carson wants heads to roll.  I guess my idea didn’t get any traction.  Cruz should offer Dr. Carson a couple delegates.  I’m shocked.  I’m shocked.  I thought that would have been a great, Great Compromise here.  I mean, whoever does that before?  I mean just give a couple delegates, “Sorry, Dr. Carson, I did that.” Of course, I can see the problem.  If you offer a couple delegates and Dr. Carson, “No, I want all five.”  Then you’ve got a negotiation. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I understand that.

But look at the magnanimity of offering a couple of delegates as a peace offering.  I mean, it’s not like offering $24 for Manhattan, but nevertheless it’s a deal.  Well, I know it’s why it probably isn’t gonna happen, he’s gonna need those delegates toward the end.  You never know.

And then there’s this from Breitbart: “Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson alleged that there is a ‘culture’ within fellow candidate Texas Senator Sen. Ted Cruz’s campaign that led some of his supporters to falsely claim Carson had dropped out during the Iowa caucus on Tuesday’s O’Reilly Factor.”  By the way, I was mentioned on The O’Reilly Factor last night, too, and we have that coming up.

We had a caller yesterday.  We’ve had a lot of callers here calling about Fox News lately.  We had one yesterday, and the caller said, “They’re not conservative anymore. They’re not conservative like I remember ’em. All they do is just criticize conservatives.”  And I sought to explain why that happens.  And the O’Reilly Factor aired that and of course promptly disagreed and brought in guests who disagreed, and then unknowingly made my point.  So we will share that with you as the program unfolds.

But Carson was on The O’Reilly Factor, said he’d talked to Cruz, “And he says that he didn’t know anything about what the campaign did,” meaning that’s what Cruz told Carson, and Carson says, “I have to accept at his word that he didn’t know, because he said if he had known, he would have not agreed with such a thing,” meaning tweet out that Carson was leaving the campaign.

Now, Carson later said: “A culture exists within the Cruz camp that would allow people to take advantage of a situation like this in a very dishonest way. Isn’t this the same thing that we see with the Obama administration, the IRS scandal? No responsibility. Let’s see, what, in fact, the Cruz campaign will do about those individuals who inappropriately disseminated this information, knowing that the caucus were not over.”

Here comes Sarah Palin, endorser of Donald Trump, on Facebook.  “Dirty Politics: Witnessing Firsthand[.] It’s Always Heartbreaking, Never Surprising.”  She writes, “Thank heavens Donald Trump opened so many eyes to the lies, corruption and total lack of accountability that come so naturally to the permanent political class. And Sen. Ted Cruz was spot on when he once noted that ‘millions of Americans are asking for accountability and truth.’ Which is why it’s so curious — and saddens us — this lack of accountability with the lies of Cruz’s own campaign.

“Cruz’s campaign chairman, US Representative Steve King, is lying, and good for Dr. Ben Carson for calling this out. King, who’s previously asked for and received my endorsement, time and resources to support his own election, is still lying about my altruistic support of Mr. Trump, and he’s refused to provide any evidence to the contrary. And, this US congressman actually lied to his own constituents on behalf of Cruz, regarding a good man, Dr. Carson.

“He told voters Carson was dropping out of the presidential race immediately before the Iowa caucus, causing a relative uproar inside the process, so the word would spread and he could rack up more votes for his candidate, Cruz. That’s a dirty trick. Dr. Carson deserved better. The voters deserved better! Where is the accountability for these political actions? Very sad; typical Washington tactics. THIS is why ‘the status quo has got to go.'” That’s Sarah Palin climbing in, dumping on Cruz and Steve King and the campaign for the dire mistreatment of Dr. Carson.

And over here: “Uh Oh, Was Marco Rubio Guilty in the Ben Carson Dropout Rumor?”

I’ll tell you what this says after this.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH:  Just got an e-mail here during the break.  “Dear Rush:  I’m missing something here in this outrage.  I’m missing something in this outrage directed at Cruz.  Trump, Palin, Carson all sound whiny to me.  What in the world do they think they’re doing?  What business are they in, here?”  Folks, maybe that describes some of you, the (crying) aspect of this.  What it means, is Cruz is the front-runner.  And this is apparently the only way they can go after him.  I guess they don’t think they can go after him on issues.

I guess they don’t see any other way to go at him. You know they’re gonna go after the front-runner.  I mean, it’s part of the race. It’s the name of the game here.  Now, it does matter, I think, what you go after the front-runner on.  You do run the risk of sounding — I don’t know — whiny.  I don’t know what it is, but you gotta realize what business you’re in here.  But if there were a way to solidly attack Cruz on issues or substance, I think they would do that, too, and so far it’s just about whatever his campaign did with Dr. Carson.

Now, I ran across a website today, first time.  It’s named PolitiStick, P-o-l-i-t-i-s-t-i-c-k.  And the write here is Jennifer Burke.  The headline: “Uh-Oh, Was Marco Rubio Guilty in the Ben Carson Dropout Rumor?”  It begins this way:  “Texas Senator Ted Cruz has been the subject of brutal attacks all day by the Dr. Ben Carson campaign…  Prior to the beginning of the Iowa Caucus, CNN reporter Chris Moody tweeted that Dr. Carson was leaving the campaign trail to return to Florida for some R&R.

“He then said that Carson would be in Washington, DC for the National Prayer Breakfast, the event that put the renowned retired pediatric neurosurgeon on the political map in 2013…  The Cruz campaign is accused of intentionally using dirty tricks against Carson during the Iowa Caucus. Dr. Carson finished the night with just over 9% of the vote. Ted Cruz won the Iowa Caucus with 27.6% …  Carson accuses Cruz of intentionally trying to undermine his campaign due to the actions of a grassroots leader involved with his campaign. …

“The one thing not being mentioned is the CNN report which stemmed from an unclear statement sent out by the Carson campaign.”   This woman, Jennifer Burke, is actually saying (summarized): You know, you want to get to the bottom of this, what started it all?  The Cruz camp didn’t start it.  There was a tweet out there.  And her area of focus is the Carson campaign backed up by CNN.  Here’s the Chris Moody tweet.  This is exactly what CNN tweeted out at 5:43 p.m. on February 1st.  This is before the caucus even started.

Chris Moody of CNN tweets: “‘Carson won’t go to New Hampshire or South Carolina but instead will head home to Florida for some R&R.  He’ll be in DC Thursday for the National Prayer Breakfast.’ The doctor’s campaign later clarified that Dr. Carson was not dropping out of the race, but merely returning to Florida to get a change of clothes. FOX News’ Dana Perino said earlier on Tuesday that such a decision by a presidential candidate at this state of the game is unheard of.  Still, Cruz handled the accusation with class issuing an apology …

“That entire apology is being framed as an admission of wrongdoing by Cruz himself… What has not been said much throughout the day is that Florida Senator Marco Rubio’s campaign worked actively to spread the message that Carson was leaving the presidential race. These actions were reported on Twitter by Conrad Close who, according to his Twitter profile, is the managing editor of Outset Magazine. Another interesting little tidbit about [Conrad] Close, that he shouts from the rooftops with his Twitter profile picture, is that he is Team Rubio with the statement below his picture, ‘I’m voting for Marco Rubio.'”

His tweet at 6:29 p.m. on February 1st, before the caucus had begun: “‘Rubio campaign pushing the narrative hard that Carson is dropping out’ Obviously looking to pick up votes from Carson.'” That’s a tweet from a guy named Conrad Close, who identifies… He’s a young guy; he identifies himself as a Rubio supporter and is the managing editor of something called Outset Magazine.  “Conservative journalist and communications guy fighting to make a difference for God and country,” is how he describes himself in his Twitter profile, “managing editor Outset, occasionally tries to save the world.”

He lives in Georgia, and he tweeted out at 6:29: “Rubio campaign pushing the narrative hard that Carson is dropping out. Obviously looking to pick up votes from Carson.”  And that’s gone.  They pulled that down, but the screenshot was grabbed of it in time.  And there’s more.  So the plot thickens here, ladies and gentlemen.  But it’s still politics.  It’s not Romper Room.  But that’s… You know, we live in a country where many Millennials think it is Romper Room, folks.  That’s a problem with our education system, and that’s another story.

President Trump Wants To Spread A Message Of Peace While In Davos

THEY WEREN’T EXPECTING HIM TO SAY THAT!

Published

on

President Trump is again on an overseas trip rubbing shoulders with other world leaders and clarifying his vision for America. President Trump ran on a platform of making America great which was a not so veiled slight toward his predecessor. Many conservatives considered the Obama Administration to have pushed America back in the eyes of many nations around the world. His desire to make sure that America lost its appearance of being an overpowering force, left us in somewhat of a compromised position.

The President’s stance on international policy has been simple; put America first, and help out other people second. Since it’s his job to make sure that Americans are looked after, it’s also his job to make sure the rest of the world knows that we won’t be hurting ourselves to bow to international political pressure. The President’s trip to Switzerland has been no exception, and the South China Morning Post reports that the first impression he’s left on the country has been an obvious one:

“Armed with his ‘America First’ philosophy, US President Donald Trump arrived in Switzerland on Thursday to tout his economic agenda and lure foreign investment at a global summit that stresses free trade and international cooperation.

‘We’re very happy to be here,’ Trump said as he arrived at the World Economic Forum. ‘The United States is doing very well, and will continue to do well and this will be a very exciting two days.’

He said he was bringing a message of ‘peace and prosperity’ to the gathering of world leaders, business executives and celebrities.

Asked whether he would be supported at the forum, Trump said: ‘I already am. You take a look.’

He had apparently not seen reports of the massive banner reading ‘Trump not welcome!’ that had been hung on the side of a mountain by Swiss activist group Campax.

Trump then went into a meeting with UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who is angling for trade deals for her country when Brexit takes place next year. He said that the discussions would lead to a ‘tremendous increase’ in trade with Britain, while May said the two countries were ‘on the same wavelength in every respect’.

While the president is expected to declare that the United States is open for business, the protectionist-leaning president’s attendance at the annual gathering for free-trade-loving political and business elites has raised eyebrows.

His decision to sign new tariffs boosting American manufacturers this week has prompted fresh concerns about his nationalist tendencies.

‘I’m going to Davos right now to get people to invest in the United States,’ Trump said on Wednesday before the overnight flight to Europe.

‘I’m going to say: ‘Come into the United States. You have plenty of money.’ But I don’t think I have to go, because they’re coming, they’re coming at a very fast clip.’

In a tweet sent before departing the White House Trump said, ‘Our economy is now booming and with all I am doing, will only get better … Our country is finally WINNING again!’

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin got to Davos ahead of Trump and insisted Wednesday that the United States supports free trade.

‘’America First’ does mean working with the rest of the world,’ said Mnuchin, who is leading the largest US delegation ever to attend the exclusive gathering.

‘It just means that President Trump is looking out for American workers and American interests, no different than he expects other leaders would look out for their own.’

US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross argued that new US tariffs on imported solar-energy components and large washing machines are meant to deal with ‘inappropriate behaviour‘ by other countries and are not protectionist. Still, Ross conceded that China could respond by imposing its own tariffs on US products.

As he signed the tariffs, Trump said he was heading to Davos to talk ‘about investing in the United States again.’”

It seems obvious that a president would be looking out for his country and not others while overseas, but in recent years the waters have gotten extremely muddied by the idea that helping the world would help America. Perhaps in some cases that is true, but in the case of America, we tend to be treated like the wealthy uncle who everyone can just ask for things from, and give nothing in return.

Everyone wanted to know what was on the POTUS’s mind when he landed, and here’s what he had to say:

Didn’t get it? Once again for the cheap seats in the back:

If seeing is believing, then you’d better find that the President doesn’t plan to back off of his America first plan. His goal is to make our country better than ever. Whether you agree with him or not, he’s charted a path and is marching forward. We ALL will make America great again.

BREAKING!! Trump Just Received HIGHEST Honor! He Just Beat Out President Ronald Reagan!

HOLY CRAP!! GO TRUMP!!!

Published

on

According to the highly prestigious conservative think tank The Heritage Foundation, President Donald Trump has done a remarkable job during the first year of his presidency. His accomplishments are surprisingly a lot better than the American Conservative icon that was President Ronald Reagan!

The heritage foundation is rightly so calling President Donald Trump the most conservative president they have ever rated. And after the eight disastrous and downright anti-American liberal years of Barack Hussein Obama, this is very positive news for both the fiscal and social future of our nation.

After each liberal Presidential Administration, the Heritage foundation begins developing a list policies that a new Republican administration could adopt if he were to win. In 2016 this list included a variety of initiatives. Some of which included reimposing work requirements for welfare recipients, ending the DACA program which shields young illegal aliens brought here illegally as children, withdrawing from the disastrous and one-sided Paris climate accord, eliminating certain unfair gender identity protections, appointing conservative judges and gutting the heart of Obamacare by removing the individual and employer mandate. President Trump is a master at success according to his first year as President.

In a statement, this week The Heritage foundation confirmed that President Trump has checked off 64 percent of those items which were on the 2016 list. Most of which were enacted either executive order or other means of enforcement. They even went as far as to include President Trump’s budget which was great but never voted on by Congress.

Via The Heritage Foundation:

“Trump Administration Embraces Heritage Foundation Policy Recommendations January 23rd, 2018

One year after taking office, President Donald Trump and his administration have adopted nearly two-thirds of the policy recommendations from The Heritage Foundation’s “Mandate for Leadership.”

The “Mandate for Leadership” series includes five individual publications, totaling approximately 334 unique policy recommendations. Analysis completed by Heritage determined that 64 percent of the policy prescriptions were included in Trump’s budget, implemented through regulatory guidance, or under consideration for action in accordance with The Heritage Foundation’s original proposals.

“President Trump had an extraordinarily successful first year,” says Thomas Binion, director of congressional and executive branch relations at The Heritage Foundation. “He put a conservative on the Supreme Court and he enacted historic pro-growth tax reform. This analysis demonstrates the lesser-known policy success that his administration has been fighting hard to enact.”

Heritage Foundation research analysts began developing the policy recommendations in 2016 during the presidential campaign with the following principles in mind: free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.

With approximately 70 former Heritage employees working for the Trump transition team or as part of the administration, the policy recommendations have served as guidelines for reducing the size and scope of the federal government through specific and detailed actions.

The first “Mandate for Leadership” was released in January 1981, containing policy proposals of reform that would make government more efficient and effective. President Ronald Reagan distributed Heritage’s book at his first Cabinet meeting.

“As President Reagan did in the 1980s,” Binion said, “President Trump has embraced the comprehensive recommendations made in the ‘Mandate for Leadership.’ These achievements have led to economic growth, a stronger national defense, and a restoration of the rule of law.”

Over the past several months, Heritage’s executive branch relations staff reviewed the 334 policy recommendations and met with senior administration officials in the several agencies. Heritage analysts briefed administration officials on the recommendations, provided additional insight and information, and advocated for reform.”

By contrast, during Reagan’s first year in office, Reagan can only claim 49 percent of Heritage’s wish list were checked off. This is excellent news and a big slap in the face to the so-called conservative leaders who to this day call themselves #neverTrumpers but who claim to pray at the altar of former President Ronald Reagan. This proves all of them were nothing more than just peons for the establishment and the swamp all along. They never cared about conservatism, all they cared about was keeping the gravy train going and maintaining the status quo alive. Maybe they just went with the flow of things to save their job and didn’t care about politics?

Please share if you are proud to support President Trump.

What will be President Trump’s next most significant accomplishment for the American people? Discuss this with your friends and talk about it in the comment section.

Trump Just Pissed Everyone Off With The AWESOME New Picture That Went Up In White House!!

BOOM!!! THATS AWESOME!!

Published

on

The White House is filled with historical pieces and artifacts that represent our nation’s history, but perhaps none are so controversial as what President Donald Trump just donned the walls of the West Wing with today. Among the painted pieces of notable figures in our nation’s history, is a new framed piece of work that comes with a clear message that cannot be ignored. Now, idiots everywhere are infuriated about what our leader had the guts to put up that we’re pretty sure his supporters are going to love.

The First Family is getting comfortable in their new home, just as the Obamas did in their disrespectful way that nobody seemed to have a problem with. When Trump moved in and began putting his personal touch on the People’s House, all hell broke loose with accusations of tactless taste that his predecessor never got when hosting rappers and their wives. Whether people agree or disagree with what our President just put on the walls, he had the right to celebrate his victory in the way he chose to decorate.

The White House isn’t just a place where the president lives, it’s a monument that represents milestones in leadership throughout our nation’s history. Perhaps not a single leader has been so controversial as our current Commander-in-Chief who overcame all odds to call this place home. Because of that, he has every right to document this incredible feat with a framed piece that shows exactly how that happened.

The media tried to portray that Trump’s opposition, Hillary Clinton, had a huge lead in the presidential race. However, one picture proved that wrong, which has now become the West Wing’s latest and perhaps most extraordinary piece of artwork.

Trump didn’t become president by a mere margin — he won by a landslide of votes where it counted most. The Electoral College is the deciding vote and the now infamous image of which way each area of every state went has become its own modern art on display in the White House, and for good reason.

Trey Yingst was among the first to spot this new display and seemingly without realizing the can of controversy he was opening with this Tweeted picture of it, he simply stated, ” Spotted: a map to be hung somewhere in the West Wing.” The image of the Electoral College Map from the election Trump swept in 2016 accompanied his sentiment and infuriated idiots around the country who couldn’t fathom why Trump would display such a thing.

It’s unknown at what point these Democratic degenerates forgot who they were talking about — thinking that somehow it was out of character for Trump to gloat. When it’s his right to do so by having earned it through honest means and against all odds, he should display that victory since it sends a message about what America is all about. Trump was truthful in his lead and the media was not, however, this is photo proof of that bias and that the American dream can be accomplished despite any adversary against you, and needs to be displayed for that reason..

Perhaps the most humorous part of the outrage over this imagery in the West Wing is that the same people who publicly express how tasteless and gross it is, in their opinion, were in support of a wife using the desk her husband received disgusting sexual favors at during his time in office. I think what it comes down to is that the truth hurts and no matter how much some people in America hate Trump, they can’t deny that he legitimately painted the country red in approval of him.

It’s often said that “a picture says a thousand words” but this one speaks volumes beyond that. Trump beat supposed frontrunner Hillary Clinton by far more than a thousand Electoral College votes. This wasn’t just a victory for him, but for the American people who were heard and deserve to have the piece of our country’s history commemorated on the wall of the White House. Every little girl and boy in America with a dream to make a difference and become president one day can do that, just like Trump did as a non-career politician. That’s significant and part of what makes America great.
