Saul’s Newsstand – Weekly Review 10-16-16

Saul Anuzis

 

 

Days until the 2016 election: 23…

 

 

To my “Thelma & Louise Republican” friends…

Elections are about choices and like it or not, there are ONLY two candidates who have chance of winning the presidency, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

 

Driving off the proverbial cliff to a Clinton victory by undercutting the campaign is NOT the answer.

 

Trump was not my choice to receive our party’s nomination.  He wasn’t one of my top choices.  I was an early supporter of Ted Cruz.

 

I have argued for primary reform, including Rank Choice Voting and Closed Primaries, but that’s a discussion for later.

 

Having said that, Trump won our party’s nominating process…like it or not.  Our party is the “center-right” party in America and is made up of a broad coalition of groups that fall under the Republican umbrella.  The political reality is that if we don’t “hang together” in the general election after fighting it out in primaries, we “hang apart” as Democrats win the election!

 

Moderates have often dominated the nominating process and expected conservatives to support our nominee.  Conservatives have had less success, but still need the broader party to win.  Now we have a populist/conservative who isn’t grounded philosophically and raises a lot of concerns for many.  I get that…but the alternative is unacceptable.

 

IF Hillary Clinton wins…

–        Clinton will continue Obama’s policies, dragging our country down

–        Clinton supports Open Borders and Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants

–        Clinton does NOT respect the sanctity of life

–        Clinton is an avid supporter of “gun control”

–        Clinton will appoint 2-3 Supreme Court Justice with the goal of moving the court to the left

–        Clinton will appoint 250+ lifetime Federal Judges to the bench across this country

–        Clinton will “fix” and expand Obama care…costing working Americans even more

–        Clinton will continue the Obama/Clinton foreign policy which has made America weaker and less safe

–        Clinton does NOT support religious liberty

 

IF Donald Trump wins…

–        Trump will shake up Washington, for better or for worse

–        Trump will “build a wall” and attack the illegal immigrant problem

–        Trump has taken a pro-life stance

–        Trump has the NRA’s endorsement and supports the 2nd Amendment

–        Trump has named respected conservative judges that are on his list for the Supreme Court

–        Trump has conservative lawyers advising him on appointments and policy

–        Trump has vowed to repeal and replace Obamacare

–        Trump will make America militarily strong again

–        Trump gets the lefts attacks on religious liberty and will support the principle of religious liberty

 

OK, so you say “what if he doesn’t” do everything he says or “I just don’t trust” him?  Well maybe. Is he a “flawed” man and a sinner…sure (but who’s isn’t).  However, this is about leading our country and setting the policies that will affect generations to come.  We know EXACTLY what Hillary will do and it’s the OPPOSITE of what virtually all of us believe in.  With Trump, he has laid out policies most of us AGREE with (minus his demeanor) and even if he’s not 100% there — there is NO doubt Trump will be better than Clinton on virtually EVERY policy.

 

MOST importantly, Trump’s judicial appointments will NOT be the same as Clinton “left wing activists” that would change our country for decades to come.

 

It’s really that simple.

 

A protest vote for some third party or a non-vote by a Republican/Conservative voter who would have normally voted Republican is helping elect Hillary Clinton president…period.  That’s a political and mathematical fact.

 

For the sake of country…think long and hard…and I encourage you to vote Trump.

 

P.S. Here’s a woman’s perspective I thought was worth sharing…

 

https://kellyquelette.wordpress.com/2016/10/11/why-im-voting-for-donald-trump/

 

P.S.S.  I’ve never seen the mainstream media and much of the Republican establishment work so hard to defeat a nominee who didn’t “fit” their narrative or business/social interests!?!

 

 

America’s social contract is dead

“The problem is not just entitlement, it’s narcissism,” says Nichols, now a professor at the US Naval War College.

 

Entitlement mostly comes from affluence and from the remarkably high standard of living in today’s America, something likely unavoidable when there is so much progress and material bounty, he says.

 

“But narcissism is a collapse of democratic values, where every American now thinks he or she is the most important person who has ever lived, instead of being one of many voters in a system based on compromise and moderation,” he said.

 

The days of the social contract, in which citizens have obligations as well as rights, seem to be over.

Clinton Adds to Her Electoral College Edge

Debate probably only reinforces the new status quo.

 

In the broad sweep of U.S. history, very occasionally one of the major parties simply disqualifies itself from the contest to win the White House by nominating an unelectable, non-mainstream candidate. We suspect that there will never be a better example than Donald Trump. The Republican Party chose a deeply divisive figure — one not supported by many senior figures in the GOP even before the release of Trump’s raunchy 2005 discussion with Access Hollywood‘s (and now The Today Show‘s) superficial, celebrity-worshipping Billy Bush. (Yes, he is of the Bush family, so a Bush finally speared Trump, however unintentionally.) Their X-rated discussion, and Trump’s insistence on discussing Bill Clinton’s sordid past, has caused voters to usher children out of the room when the TV news comes on. Is this the most embarrassing campaign ever? It must be close.

 

There are some amusing aspects to this, including the parade of top Republicans who are shocked, shocked that Trump is capable of lewd, vulgar, crass talk and behavior. What did they think they were getting? Only now do they consider Trump unworthy of their support? And they find themselves in a tough spot because there has always been more resistance to Trump among the party leadership than the rank and file. The vast majority of self-identified Republicans will vote for Trump, and they may be angered by the party leaders who have retracted their endorsements. One thing that’s clear to us is that the idea of Trump actually dropping out is nearly unimaginable — and, no, the Republican National Committee is not going to remove him from the ticket. The Republicans have been stuck with Trump ever since his victory in the Indiana primary on May 3, and practically speaking before that as well.

IF you like politics and are interested in polling…a great read

How One 19-Year-Old Illinois Man Is Distorting National Polling Averages

There is a 19-year-old black man in Illinois who has no idea of the role he is playing in this election.

He is sure he is going to vote for Donald J. Trump.

 

And he has been held up as proof by conservatives — including outlets like Breitbart News and The New York Post — that Mr. Trump is excelling among black voters. He has even played a modest role in shifting entire polling aggregates, like the Real Clear Politics average, toward Mr. Trump.

 

How? He’s a panelist on the U.S.C. Dornsife/Los Angeles Times Daybreak poll, which has emerged as the biggest polling outlier of the presidential campaign. Despite falling behind by double digits in some national surveys, Mr. Trump has generally led in the U.S.C./LAT poll. He held the lead for a full month until Wednesday, when Hillary Clinton took a nominal lead.

 

Our Trump-supporting friend in Illinois is a surprisingly big part of the reason. In some polls, he’s weighted as much as 30 times more than the average respondent, and as much as 300 times more than the least-weighted respondent.

How to Rebuild the Republican Party

The problem is that pro-Trump Republicans may not agree that Trumpism failed. They may not be amenable to a reconciliation based on acknowledging that they, uniquely, were wrong—and that their defeated party opponents were in the right all along.

 

Their guy did win 4 million more votes in the 2016 primaries than Mitt Romney won in 2012—despite the 2016 runner-up winning more than twice as many votes as the 2012 runner-up.

 

Their guy easily bested every challenger against him: the hugely well-funded Jeb Bush, tough guy Chris Christie, the winsome and bilingual Marco Rubio, the true conservative Ted Cruz, the tough-as-nails Scott Walker, fellow outsider CEO Carly Fiorina … a gamut of styles and talents.

 

Their guy exposed the weakness of would-be Republican powerbrokers and veto-wielders, from the pro-life movement to the Wall Street Journal editorial page.

 

Unless their guy loses to Hillary Clinton in a 2008 style deluge, Trump backers will be much more likely to blame traitors inside the party for his defeat than their own bad judgment in supporting him. Pro-Trump media outlets and personalities (Sean Hannity; Ann Coulter; Laura Ingraham; and Breitbart.com) have gained audience. Anti-Trump media outlets and personalities lost viewers, listeners, and readers. Trump will almost certainly win more total votes than either George W. Bush in 2000 or John McCain in 2008. He could easily match Mitt Romney’s 61-million-vote, 47-percent-vote-share performance in 2012. If that happens, Trump himself may not go away so quietly, instead continuing to dominate the political stage to insist that he was right and all his critics were wrong, stupid, losers.

 

Meanwhile, anti-Trump conservatives will be thrust back into exactly the position they held from 2013 to 2015: exponents of an ideology that does not command majority assent even within the Republican coalition, never mind the country as a whole. Repeal Obamacare; end the Medicare guarantee for people under age 55; offer big tax cuts to corporations and the richest taxpayers; pass constitutional amendments to stop abortion and same-sex marriage; back immigration reform that increases the flow of low-wage labor into the economy; take no action on climate change or other environmental concerns: that message has been tried and found wanting again and again since 2009, and it’s not going to appeal any more strongly after November. Whatever else Donald Trump did, he confirmed that a majority of Republican voters also want a message that secures health coverage, raises middle-class incomes, and enforces borders and national identity.

A New Weapon in Russia’s Arsenal, and It’s Inflatable

Mr. Komarov oversees military sales at Rusbal, a hot air balloon company that also provides the Ministry of Defense with one of Russia‘s lesser-known military threats: a growing arsenal of inflatable tanks, jets and missile launchers, including the MIG in the field.

 

At a factory behind high concrete walls not far from here, workers toiling in secret with little more than sewing machines and green fabric are churning out the ultimate in soft power: decoys that appear lifelike from as close as 300 yards and can pop up and then vanish in mere minutes.

 

As Russia under President Vladimir V. Putin has muscled its way back onto the geopolitical stage, the Kremlin has employed a range of stealthy tactics: silencing critics abroad, hitching the Orthodox Church to its conservative counterrevolution, spreading false information to audiences in Europe and even, according to the Obama administration, meddling in American presidential politics by hacking the Democratic Party’s computers.

 

One of the newer entries to that list is an updating of the Russian military’s longtime interest in operations of deceit and disguise, a repertoire of lethal tricks known as maskirovka, or masking. It is a psychological warfare doctrine that is becoming an increasingly critical element in the country’s geopolitical ambitions.

Pretty Cool Collection – A Century of AP Campaign Photos

On January 1, 1935, the Associated Press distributed its first photo across its wire services: a plane crash in a snowy, heavily wooded area of upstate New York. Though they couldn’t have known it at the time, with that New Year’s Day photograph, the AP began a journalistic revolution — one that would transform (quite literally) the way people see the world.

When the AP was founded in 1846, photography was in its wobbly infancy, just eight years removed from the first photograph depicting people. But as technology advanced and the boundaries of journalism expanded with it, the photograph emerged as an indispensable part of the journalist’s toolkit. Images fundamentally changed the way that people saw the world and understood to the news — whether sports, features, crime, beat-reporting, human interest, or politics.

“I think campaign photography is important because it affords an opportunity for those who are not present to understand what is going on in a campaign,” says Santiago Lyon, the AP’s vice president and director of photography. “As photojournalists, we are the eyes of the people. We are a very important part of broader journalistic coverage of presidential campaigns.”

This fall, the AP teamed up with the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts in Farmville, Virginia, to debut an exhibition of the AP’s presidential campaign photos from 1916–2016. Curated by LCVA executive director Rachel Ivers and Longwood University chief of staff Justin Pope, with the assistance of AP special projects manager Chuck Zoeller, the exhibition, “Citizens and Leaders,” was intended to reflect Longwood University’s mission to develop citizen leaders as the university hosted 2016’s sole vice presidential debate. Drawing from that collection, Politico is pleased to share some of the highlights from the Associated Press’ history of presidential campaign photos.

Above, the 1916 Democratic National Convention in St. Louis, Missouri, nominates President Woodrow Wilson and Vice President Thomas R. Marshall for reelection.

Walker/Cruz or Cruz/Walker is the only viable Alternative

Ted Cruz, Scott Walker

There is only one viable alternative that could possibly rally the grassroots on the floor of the convention – assuming Trump continues to implode…that’s a Walker/Cruz or Cruz/Walker ticket?!?

Interesting times ahead…

Here’s How a Trump Presidency Could Actually Happen

Elections are always clearer in retrospect than they appeared in prospect. So I thought it might be interesting to imagine the column a pundit like me might write next year, to explain an upset victory by Donald Trump. It’s not a prediction, nor even the most plausible scenario—but it might illuminate the strengths and weaknesses of these candidates as they embark on their general-election campaigns.

 

January 22, 2017.

As always, the election turned on basic arithmetic. Hillary Clinton’s campaign message aimed at the aspirations of women and girls cost her more votes among Latino males under 40 than it gained her among suburban married white women. It was Donald Trump’s surprising over-performance among the first group—and Clinton’s under-performance with the second—that tipped this election’s battleground states into his column, and with them, the election.

Obamanomics…93,482,000 Americans Out of Labor Force in March

The number of Americans not participating in the workforce in March dipped again compared to the previous month but was still higher than it was a year ago, according to Labor Department data released Friday.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that 93,482,000 Americans were neither employed nor had made an effort to find employment in March.

March’s non-participation level continues a multi-month trend of decline after the number of people out of the workforce hit a record high of 94,610,000 in October — declining another 206,000 compared to February.

While the number of people out of the workforce declined in March, 292,000 more people were out of the work force compared to March 2015.

Ted Cruz is having a moment to shine.

The Texas senator has become the favorite to win Tuesday’s primary in Wisconsin, which would be huge for his presidential campaign.

 

He’s seen a GOP establishment that despised him warm to his presidential campaign and showed off his policy chops and a sense of humor during a Wednesday night appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

 

At a CNN town hall earlier in the week, Cruz had a well-received moment when he opened up about losing his sister to heroin addiction.

 

Sweeter still is that Cruz’s shining moments have come amidst a rocky stretch for GOP front-runner Donald Trump who this week saw his campaign manager charged with simple battery and who then stumbled badly in an MSNBC interview over abortion.

Establishment Pitch – NOPE!  Karl Rove: ‘Fresh face’ might be best GOP nominee

One thing that unites many supporters of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz is the suspicion that party elders might try to hand the Republican presidential nomination to another candidate if neither Trump nor Cruz arrives in Cleveland with the 1,237 delegates required to win.

 

Important voices in the conservative world have voiced such concerns. Rush Limbaugh, for one, has speculated that the Republican establishment will try to “install whoever they want” at a contested convention. (Limbaugh guessed such a final choice might be Jeb Bush or Paul Ryan.)

 

Now Karl Rove, a man many view as the physical embodiment of the establishment, has poured gallons of fuel on the Republican fire. Appearing on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show Thursday evening, Rove said a “fresh face” chosen at the convention might turn the GOP’s fortunes around and win in November.

Delegates ready to flee Trump at contested convention
The reality of a contested convention has become more real than ever, with Donald Trump facing the risk of losing Wisconsin next week, meaning he’d have to win roughly 60 percent of the remaining delegates to win the Republican presidential nomination outright.

 

If Trump heads into the convention without the magic number of 1,237, already more than a hundred delegates are poised to break with him on a second ballot, according to interviews with dozens of delegates, delegate candidates, operatives and party leaders.

 

In one of the starkest examples of Trump’s lack of support, out of the 168 Republican National Committee members — each of whom doubles as a convention delegate — only one publicly supports Trump, and she knows of only a handful of others who support him privately.

Cameron Warns ISIS Plans to Use Drones Armed With Dirty Bombs to Attack the West

British Prime Minister David Cameron has warned that ISIS terrorists are planning to use drones to spray nuclear material over cities in the West. That’s what the Daily Telegraph reports:

 

World leaders are concerned that  jihadists want to buy basic drones that are widely available online to transport radioactive material into the heart of major cities in a strike that could kill thousands.

 

The Prime Minister warned that the dangers of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) [red.: or ISIS] getting hold of nuclear material was “only too real”.

 

According to the British daily, footage has already surfaced of ISIS testing drones for such a dirty bomb attack. The threat is taken so seriously that Western leaders were asked to participate in war games to plan for a response to it. A British official explains:

 

We have already seen Daesh [another name for ISIS] trying to look at whether they can they get their hands on low-level crop-using-type drones.

And that’s precisely why it’s so hard to understand why the anti-ISIS coalition is still not taking the war on the terrorist group seriously. Sure, ISIS positions are attacked every now and then — yesterday, for instance, by the U.S.-led coalition and today by the Turkish military — but that won’t even almost suffice to wipe them out.

Why Ted Cruz -Take #2

nra leadership forum

Over a year ago I wrote this article on my blog which was also published in Newsmax.  The arguments for Ted Cruz still stands…and the philosophical reasons for backing a movement conservative who is not afraid to fight both parties if needed, is stronger now than ever.

After watching the early primaries and realizing the fear and willingness of folks who are really scared of the idea of Ted Cruz winning the presidency will do anything, say anything and get the backing of the media along the way…that just fires me up even more!

Talking heads, Republican pundits and the mainstream media are teaming up to “anoint” Marco Rubio while systematically tearing down Ted Cruz.  The spin, the coordinated character assassination and shameless lies and distortions by “strange bedfellows” has had its toll.  But only enough to give the establishment and Trump enough “tools” and distorted rhetoric to continue their narrative.  There were NO dirty tricks, no lies…just spin that fit the establishment’s narrative…so they went with it.  I don’t expect that to change…it’s just an obstacle and political reality we will have to deal with.

So far, ONLY Cruz and Trump have won any of the early primaries.  Cruz won Iowa and placed stronger than expected in New Hampshire and South Carolina.  But you would NEVER know that from the news coverage.  Conservatives traditionally do not run well in New Hampshire, Cruz placed exceptionally well.  In South Carolina, the Governor, two U.S. Senators and one of the most popular Congressmen endorsed others…and Cruz missed coming in second by about 1,000 votes…with the establishment rallying behind Rubio.

Seriously, if Marco can’t win in South Carolina, with everyone on his side, where can he win?

Carson & Kasich are no longer really running for President.  Neither of them have any viable path to the nomination, so they continue to “play” for some personal political agenda?

Trump is winning and polling in the low to mid 30’s…those are not the numbers of an invincible candidacy.  There is a long way to go…and Cruz has a 50 state organization, leaders and supporters in all 5 Territories and the District of Columbia.  We prepared for the “long game” and no one else seems to be worried about much more than perceived momentum.  I think they call it “smoke and mirrors”.

So why Ted Cruz…

Cruz

  • – The only courageous conservative that has a committed base
  • – A large and growing number or small donors
  • – Strong Super PAC support (all philosophical)
  • – He’s a constitutionalist – grounded philosophically as a “movement conservative”
  • – Can attract traditional conservative, evangelicals, Tea Party, liberty and Reagan Democrats
  • – He has consistently outperformed every other candidate with the youth vote in early states
  • – A consistent, disciplined and articulate conservative message
  • – He has more money than any other candidate left in the race

With Jeb Bush out of the race, he has raised more money than any other candidate in the race, Super PACs supporting him have more money than other and as of the last filing, he had more cash on hand than any other candidate in the race!

Trump

–         Appears to have hit a ceiling with about a third of the Republican primary vote

–         He is NOT a conservative…a populist, but NOT a conservative

–         Government funded healthcare, but not Obamacare?  How is Trumpcare different?

–         On Obamacare he said this week “I like the mandates”!?!  Really???

–         Supports eminent domain taking for private deals

–         Supports targeted censorship of the internet

–         Neutral on the “Israel v Palestinian” issue

–         Supports “parts” of Planned Parenthood

–         Saving grace…better than Hillary.

 

Rubio

–         Rubio’s “big wins” are that he came in 3-5-2 instead of his projected and touted 3-2-1 –hence,  victory redefined

–         His “amnesty” recorded contradictory statements will continue to haunt him

–         His willingness to deal with the “Gang of 8” worries many conservatives

–         More likely to compromise than fight

–         Susceptible to “robo-talk” moments because he uses/needs his talking points too much

–         The establishment REALLY likes him – too much outside influence?

Ted Cruz is the ONLY candidate who has beat Donald Trump.  He is the ONLY candidate with a strong base of supporters that can effectively battle Trump on the issues…with credibility.

Marco Rubio is the establishments darling.  But he hasn’t won ANYWHERE.  He had EVERY thing going for him in South Carolina and he squeaked by Cruz by barely 1,000 votes out of 800,000+ cast?!?  He came in 3rd in Iowa, 5th in New Hampshire and barely made 2nd in South Carolina.  And yet the establishment and mainstream media “redefines” this as “win-ability”?!?

There is a strong army of courageous conservatives across this country ready to fight. We have the best national ground game with 200K+ volunteers which is using of cutting-edge micro-targeting analytical and data technology to reach voters. We have a huge donor base of small contributors giving EVERY month to support that fight.  We have philosophically grounded Super PACs supporting his candidacy for all the right reasons.

And most importantly, we have the right candidate, with the right message in Ted Cruz to make America great again…and I mean in the real sense!

Stand tall, shoulder to shoulder and  double our efforts – because it’s a long way to the nomination and we’re ready for the fight – and win!
