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.

Trump Had ENOUGH! Just Signed a 5-Year Ban….This is HUGE!

It’s happening!

Published

on

President Trump has been in office for less than a year, and he is more determined than ever to make sure his agenda to make America great again does not fail. After the Supreme Court ruled that President Trump’s travel ban was indeed constitutional, he is not wasting any more time and pushing through more initiatives to strengthen our country. Over this past weekend, Trump took his presidential pen and signed an executive order to help restore sincerity and honesty in Washington, which has the left screaming foul.

Now, this is how you drain the swamp.

President Trump is making good on his campaign promises, and the left cannot stand it.

First, Trump scored a significant win when the Supreme Court reinstated the travel ban and then shortly after that he officially recognized Jeresulam as the capital of Israel, which had leftists melting like snowflakes in July. As these fragile liberals are still recovering from a massive dose of #MAGA, Trump used that momentum to sign into action another executive order to drain the swamp.

In another effort to keep more of his campaign promises, Trump ended backroom deals and put government employees on notice in his latest executive order.

President Donald Trump fulfilled an essential portion of his pledge to “drain the swamp” in Washington, by banning administration officials from ever lobbying the U.S. on behalf of a foreign government and imposing a separate five-year ban on all lobbying activities.

Trump has said individuals who want to aid him in his mission to “Make America Great Again” should focus on the jobs they will be doing to help the American people, and not to be thinking ahead to their future income they could rake in by peddling their influence after serving in the government.

This new ban that Trump signed supersedes the one that Barack Obama signed in 2009, that banned anyone from lobbying the government for a period of two years after leaving the government. Though what makes Trump’s ban better than Obama’s is that the new ban closes up all the “loopholes” that the former ban allowed.

Soon after making that monumental move, Trump went on to sign two more executive orders that show just how serious Trump is about making our country great again.

Here is more from Breitbart:

President Donald J. Trump signed three new executive actions on Saturday afternoon, including a five-year lobbying ban, reorganization of the National Security Council, and a plan to defeat the Islamic State.

Regarding the lobbying ban, Trump said:

So this is a five-year lobbying ban, and this is all of the people — most of the people standing behind me will not be able to go to work.

It’s a two-year ban now and it’s got full of loopholes and this is a five-year ban. So you have one last chance to get out. Good, I had a feeling you were going to say that.

This was something, the five-year ban, that I have been taking a lot about on the campaign trail.

Ahead of the signing, a senior administration official indicated that the lobbying ban included not only a five-year ban on administration officials but a lifetime ban on administration officials lobbying for a foreign country.

After signing the document to reorganize the National Security Council, the President said, “This is the organization of the National Security Council and the Homeland Security Council, you know pretty much what it represents, it represents a lot, and also a lot of efficiency and I think a lot of additional safety. People have been talking about this for a long time, like many years.”

President Trump signed the ISIS plan, after which he said, “This is the plan to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, in other words, ISIS. I think it’s going to be very successful. That’s big stuff.”

The White House senior administration official also said ahead of the signing that the executive action regarding ISIS would give military leaders 30 days to compile and present a report to the President on a strategy to defeat ISIS.

The President responded to questions about Friday’s executive order on immigration after signing each of the three executive actions, stating, “It’s not a Muslim ban, but we were totally prepared. It’s working out very nicely. You see it at the airports, you see it all over.”

President Trump is doing precisely what the American people sent him to Washington D.C. to do, and that is to bring integrity back to the government. Under the Obama administration, everything was sold off to the highest bidder which did not serve the American people, but only helped fatten the lobbyist’s pocketbooks, and that is about to end.

Thank you, President Trump, for putting the American people first and doing your best to make America great again!

SICK Dem Leaders In New York Hid What Terrorists Did 2 Weeks Ago – Could Have Stopped Today’s Attack

They should be in prison!

Published

on

Working in the mainstream media seems to come with an imperative that the party line is towed at any cost. Gone are the days of objective journalism, and here is the generation of anchors that grace your TV screen to lull you into a false sense of security, promising you that the brilliant politicians have it all in hand.

Ronald Reagan is credited with saying that the scariest words in the English language were “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” But that’s not what the media wants you to believe, they think that you should just ride that easy chair and leave it up to the “smart people” to take care of things. And if you’re inclined to do that, sit back and listen to how well that goes for us.

While we were all hard at work, getting ready for Christmas, Muslims have also been planning their holiday, but with a bloodier celebration than you or I. Chatter on pro-ISIS networks and other vengeful jihadist forms of communication showed that the attack which happened in New York City this morning was planned weeks ago, and officials knew about it.

According to Metro UK, there was not only talk, but some of these violent Islamists went to the trouble of making up carefully crafted infographics, warning the western world that they planned to attack. This is their report from November 28, just about 2 weeks ago:

“A disturbing image showing Santa Claus standing on a low roof next to a box of dynamite looking out over a crowd of shoppers in Times Square has been released by the terrorist group. The poster reads ‘We meet at Christmas in New York… soon’ in black on white. It’s the latest propaganda image warning of attacks during Christmas time across Europe.

The group have been using encrypted communication channels to share posters of London’s Regent Street and Paris’ Eiffel Tower with images of jihadists and blood superimposed on them.

The pictures show a chilling message in English, French, and German stating: ‘Soon on your holidays’. Earlier this week, a propaganda poster emerged showing a terrorist in the Vatican with a rocket launcher. The message warned that ‘the crusaders’ feast is approaching’, suggesting they are planning to attack the Catholic church’s holy city.

Another was shared online showing a masked figure driving towards St Peter’s Basilica with a gun and a backpack inside his car, with the message ‘Christmas blood’ written in red underneath. The posters are a chilling reminder of the terror attack on a Berlin Christmas Market last year. On December 19, Tunisian asylum seeker Anis Amri drove a truck into the crowds at the Christmas Market at Breitscheidplatz in Berlin Twelve people died, including the original driver of the truck who was shot by Amri when he hijacked the vehicle, and 56 others were injured.”

(ISIS ST PETERS SQUARE ATTACK CHRISTMAS)

This is disturbing a hundred times over, not only because of how brazen the attackers are, telegraphing their threats and intent to kill the infidels, but that this wasn’t all over the evening news. Every time North Korea’s dictator, Kim Jong-un, so much as sneezes his statements from the Pentagon and conferences with Japan and South Korea, just as it should be. But since this threat came from a group who’s trying hard to scrub their public persona, with the help of the mainstream media, it was silence.

This is a pointed attack against multiple nations and it’s complete silence from every major news network. While we can all appreciate that no one wants to cause mass hysteria, there’s a point at which a threat is valid and should be used to warn people. In the case of the terrorists fueled by the fires of Islam, they have proven time and again that they will strike. But we didn’t listen, and today there was another attack. DML News reports the details of the attack, and how completely senseless our unpreparedness was and is:

“One man is in custody with the New York Police Department after he detonated the bomb he was wearing in a Port Authority underground walkway that leads to and away from a city subway.

According to Fox News, the man is 27 years old and lives in Brooklyn, N.Y. He bears a foreign name and has been in the United States for eight years.

The bomb went off Monday morning during rush hour. Reportedly, it was detonated prematurely, while it was on the terrorist’s body.

The NYFD is reporting that four people were injured in the bombing.

Former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton has confirmed the event is ISIS-inspired.

Weeks ago, ISIS published cartoon-style photos of Santa standing next to bombs as he overlooked Times Square in NYC.”

Being attacked with no warning is terrible, but it’s even worse that they tried to tell us and we ignored it. Talking about terrorists might not be good for Democrats or the major network’s ratings, but neither is their voters being blown to bits. Pick your terrible.

Obama Just Showed Up Where Trump Was And Stabs Him In Back – Issues Urgent Order He’s Demanding NOW

Obama is trying to screw us over!

Published

on

Alabama is currently the home of one of the most closely watched Senate races in recent history and it has heated up with even more star power in the past few days. The controversial Republican candidate, Roy Moore, has been fighting off allegations of sexual misconduct and even though some of the sources turned out to be less than reliable, Moore has suffered some terrible attacks.

President Trump’s support of the Republican candidate has no doubt helped Moore’s cause, considering the audience he’s catering too. Even though any allegations of misconduct are very damaging, the American people are understanding more and more the number of lies coming to us through the media, and are more apt to trust a person whom they know something about (like President Trump) over a broadcasting company with an agenda.

Never one to be outdone by the President, former President Obama also threw his support behind an Alabama. President Trump’s support of Moore was so effective that Obama decided to try and put his political sway behind Jones, the Democratic candidate. CNN gleefully reports that Obama is not only officially endorsing Jones, but has even recorded a “robocall” demanding that Alabamans support Jones, and throwing a little shade at Moore in the process:

“Former President Barack Obama is adding his voice to the Alabama Senate race, imploring voters to go to the polls Tuesday to reject the candidacy of Roy Moore as part of an aggressive effort by Democrats to try and counter President Donald Trump’s full-throated endorsement of the controversial Republican candidate. 

‘This one’s serious,’ Obama says in the call. ‘You can’t sit it out.’

Two Democratic officials familiar with the Alabama race tell CNN that Obama recorded the phone message in recent days, at the very time Trump stepped up his own involvement in the campaign with a recorded message. Obama does not mention Moore by name.

‘Doug Jones is a fighter for equality, for progress,” Obama says. “Doug will be our champion for justice. So get out and vote, Alabama.’

Obama’s message to voters — intended to specifically reach black voters whose turnout is critical for Democratic candidate Jones — comes on the eve of a special election that has drawn extraordinary national attention and divided the Republican Party over whether sexual allegations against Moore make him unfit for office.”

Where did Obama get the bright idea to jump in now? Why from President Trump of course. President Trump recently recorded a call that was sent out for Moore’s campaign that said, in part:

“Hi, this is President Donald Trump and I need Alabama to go vote for Roy Moore,” Trump says in the call. “We’re already making America great again. I’m going to make America safer and stronger and better than ever before. But we need that seat. We need Roy voting for us. I am stopping illegal immigration and crime. We’re building a stronger military and protecting the Second Amendment and our pro-life values. But if Alabama elects liberal Democrat Doug Jones all of our progress will be stopped cold.” Trump said Moore is “the guy we need to pass our Make America Great Again agenda.”

“Roy is a conservative who will help me steer this country back on track after eight years of the Obama disaster,” said the president.

So why has President Trump’s recording gone out, but Obama’s hasn’t? That’s easy; the target audience loves Trump and doesn’t love Obama. According to Biz Pac Review, while Jones, Moore’s competition, needs all the help he can get, what he needs help with are the middle ground Republicans who don’t love the stink that this controversy has left on Moore, and Obama isn’t the way to distance oneself from a stink:

“As of Sunday night, the Jones campaign has yet to play the Obama card, for fear of alienating the one group they need to ultimately win: ‘Republican-leaning white voters,’ according to the New York Times.

Of course, that hasn’t stopped the Jones campaign from fear-mongering, trying to drive its African-American base to the polls by running commercials declaring that Moore is “backed by the racist alt-right groups” and calling him “a birther, still insisting that Barack Obama was born in Kenya and isn’t an American.

Republicans are between a rock and a hard place in Alabama. While Moore is accused of doing some pretty unsavory things four decades ago, in allegations that suspiciously only came to light after he defeated Luther Strange in the GOP primaries, it should be obvious what the pro-choice, anti-Second Amendment, liberal Democrat Jones would do is he is given the reigns of power.

In other words, Alabamians need to decide whether what Moore may or may not have done four decades ago is worse than what people like Jones will do to them, and the rest of the country, right now.”

Alabama has the unenviable task of trying to sort fact from fiction in what is an unbridled media crap storm. There’s no way that someone (maybe several someones) aren’t lying to the good people of Alabama right now. President Trump, like many Americans, has found himself in the position of choosing to endorse the person who is likely to do the least damage, and in this case, that’s Moore.
