ROMNEY WORDSWORTH – It’s Wednesday, November 25, 2015, and you know what that means: It’s Trump Day! Let’s get started.
The Washington Post reports that executives from ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and FOX have met to strategize how to fight back against what they claim is shabby treatment from the Trump Campaign. Their complaints include “harsh coverage ristrictions”, “impolite responses from staffers”, “constant clashes” and a “hostile environment”. Oh, boo hoo.
I don’t recall any of these networks complaining when the Obama Administration tried to completely ostracize FOX News from Presidential briefings, cut out all the networks from bringing cameras into events or allow questions to be asked. Hillary Clinton’s campaign is similarly highly scripted, with reporters being kept at arms length and only entertaining pre-approved questions.
Earlier in the week, the Palace Guard Media tried to make up a story that Donald Trump was in favor of creating “lists” of Muslims. This fabricated attack evaporated under scrutiny, which showed that Trump never said it, and was talking about enforcing the border. ABC News was caught editing the tapes, in the same way NBC spliced and diced the police call recording of George Zimmerman during the Trayvon Martin case.
Credit to the alternative media, spearheaded by Rush Limbaugh, that debunked the attack.
The latest attack on Donald Trump by the Media was the kerfuffle created by Trump’s recounting of how Muslims celebrated in New Jersey when the Twin Towers were toppled on 9/11. The Media tried to create the myth that it never happened. The only problem is that the Washington Post published a story about it at the time, and hundreds of people have weighed in on the Internet joining Trump, saying that they remember seeing it too.
Expect to see Donald Trump’s poll numbers go UP as a result of these failed attacks. Speaking of poll numbers, Trump continues to sail high above the rest of the GOP field.
Quinnipiac Nov. 24th Iowa poll: Trump 25, Carson 18, Cruz 23, Rubio 13, Bush 4, Fiorina 3, Jindal, Paul 5, Huckabee 2, Christie 2, Santorum 2, Kasich 1, Graham 0, Pataki 0
Suffolk University Nov. 24th Massachusetts poll: Trump 32, Rubio 18, Carson 5, Cruz 10, Bush 7, Fiorina 4, Christie 4, Kasich 2, Paul 1, Graham 0, Huckabee 0
ABC/Wash Post Nov. 22nd National poll: Trump 32, Carson 22, Rubio 11, Cruz 8, Bush 6, Fiorina 4, Huckabee 3, Christie 2, Kasich 3, Paul 3, Graham 1, Pataki 0, Santorum 1, Jindal 0
CBS/YouGov Nov. 22nd New Hampshire poll: Trump 32, Rubio 13, Cruz 10, Carson 10, Bush 6, Kasich 8, Christie 5, Paul 6, Fiorina 6, Huckabee 1, Graham 1, Santorum 1, Jindal 0, Pataki 0
John Kasich this week accepted a kamikaze assignment from the GOP Establishment to take Trump out, and is now using one of his PACs to run anti-Trump advertisements, a purported collection of alleged Trump gaffes. A Jeb Bush PAC is running virtually the same attack ad, almost word for word. But, don’t worry, there’s no collusion going on between the candidates and these PACs, because that would be illegal, right?
If these so called gaffes were going to hurt Trump with his own supporters, it would have already happened when the Democrat Run Media tried to make hay out of them. This really just amounts to free advertising for Trump from his GOP enemies.
An obscure Republican official is claiming that Donald Trump should be taken off the ballot in New Hampshire, allegedly due to Trump having “inconsistent views” on various issues. Gee, if that were the standard, then Marco Rubio would have been thrown out of the Republican Party years ago. This is just another pathetic and desperate sign that the Republican Leadership is hopelessly out of touch with its own base.
It’s time for the Beltway Leadership to take the same Loyalty Oath to the ultimate nominee that they made Donald Trump take months ago.
Ted Cruz has pole vaulted into second place in Iowa, while Ben Carson has faded to a distant third. This has apparently happened due to Carson’s fumbling in the aftermath of the Paris Attacks, which made him look weak on combating terrorism. By contrast, Trump has announced his intention to bring back water boarding of terrorists, to uproarious approval in packed stadiums of supporters.
Donald Trump continues to campaign in the belt of Southern States crucial to Super Tuesday, showing that he is thinking ahead on how to gather enough delegates to lock up the Republican nomination. He has been active in Ohio in the Midwest and continues to go back to states like Alabama in the Deep South where he continues to fill football stadiums.
It is increasingly looking like nothing short of an assassin’s bullet is going to keep Donald Trump from the GOP nomination, but I don’t discount the Beltway Elite from taking it to that level. Stay tuned and pray that the voice of the The People is not so silenced.
