Reagan Would Be Vomiting

The GOP is imploding. If the GOP establishment and the RINOs had gone after the Democrats the way they’re going after Donald Trump, we would have been on a winning streak this past decade.

UPDATE:  CNN to air Trump rally at 9pm — exact same time as the Fox News debate. Well played.

Geller: I Support Cruz; but the War on Trump is Extreme and Repulsive

By Pamela Geller, Breitbart, January 28, 2016:
It’s no secret that I endorse Ted Cruz for President, because he best represents conservative ideals. And yes, I was highly critical of Donald Trump’s attack on the First Amendment in the wake of the thwarted jihad mass shooting at our American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) free speech event in Garland, Texas last May. This was because if someone doesn’t have a fundamental understanding of the importance of the First Amendment, he is disqualified to be President. But the war that has been declared within our own ranks against Donald Trump is repulsive in the extreme, and getting worse by the day.

National Review dedicated an entire issue to attacking Trump, with the cover featuring a list of the heavy hitters on the Right who were lining up to bash Trump. They have no right to be heavy hitters on the Right. Whether you like Trump or not, it is wonderful that our tent is so genuinely diverse intellectually that he could be the front runner. It is to our credit.

In the wake of that outrageous National Review issue dedicated to attacking, defaming and destroying Donald Trump, the Weekly Standard, like the good little goose steppers they are, followed with an even more vicious attack on the Republican front runner. The Weekly Standard’s hit piece was illustrated with a photo of Trump as King Kong, as Weekly Standard editor William Kristol tweeted smug and silly apologies to King Kong: “Of course unfair to King Kong, who’s a noble and tragic figure.” The Standard may depict Trump as King Kong, but they’re acting like Godzilla. Who died and made William Kristol king of the Right? He is following the dictum of Walter Ulbricht, General Secretary of the East German Communist Party: if the people don’t vote the way you want, “Change the people.”

nro

And the jihad against Trump continues. The irony is that what the GOP establishment is accusing Trump of doing is exactly what they themselves are doing. How imperial and autocratic of the establishment Right to dictate to the people who they can and cannot support. Their contempt for the people is anathema to who we are: Ronald Reagan always stood fast and insisted that we don’t eat our own. Remember his Eleventh Commandment: Thou shalt not speak ill of a fellow Republican.

 

So what are the establishment Republicans doing? They talk about the Right imploding – they’re the ones who are setting off the suicide bombs. How often have conservatives swallowed that jagged little pill and supported the clown that the establishment put up? I have permanent dent marks in my nostrils from holding my nose to support John McCain for President. That was painful. And so was Romney, a 20th-century candidate in a 21st-century fight. But we did it, because that was who the Party picked. But now the people are picking.

the-weekly-standard-trump megyn-kelly-michael-moore1

Fox News is the only game in town for the Right, and yet Fox and the Republican establishment are more vicious and divisive than the Left. And the Left, not surprisingly, is loving it: the New York Times crowed that “Trump’s war on Fox News isn’t just a media spat. It’s part of a war for control against the power structure of the G.O.P. — whose appeals to cultural anxieties he has hijacked and dialed up to 11 — and thus against Fox as an extension of it. (The bizarro-world possibility of a Fox News at odds with the Republican nominee, should Mr. Trump win, would be one more weird twist in a campaign full of them.)” Trump’s war on Fox? What about Fox’s war on Trump? They’re supposed to be a news organization holding a debate. Yet their press release attacking Trump was snarky, baiting, adolescent – unworthy of what they claim to be.

 

In reality, Fox News and Trump’s bête noire Megyn Kelly have jumped the shark. The love fest Tuesday night between Kelly and Michael Moore pulled back the curtain on the RINO news network. It was jarring. My tweet referring to the “love affair” between Kelly and Moore and adding that Fox News “hates Trump more than it loves its own integrity” was retweeted hundreds of times. Megyn has Michael Moore on her show? By way of comparison, Megyn Kelly has never once had me on — even in the wake of the assassination attempt in Garland, Texas and the Boston jihad plot to behead me for my “blasphemy.”

On the show, Moore gushed over Kelly: “You have to play ball with this network. Donald Trump today said ‘I’m not playing ball with this network.’ That’s a historic moment! […] You’ve made this happen. You’ve caused a crisis upstairs.” He added: “God bless you, Megyn Kelly!”

My take? Megyn Kelly is angling to be the next evening news anchor on one of the big three networks. She aspires to be the next Diane Sawyer (the new haircut is a dead giveaway).
As if that wasn’t bad enough, it came out soon afterward that Fox News plans to give an anti-Trump Muslim supremacist a platform for her hatred. Nabeela Noor has smeared Trump as a bigot and likened him to Adolf Hitler. Fox needs to feature an Islamic supremacist in a debate? Really? Why not Ibn Warraq or Robert Spencer? Why not, finally, have a true scholar on jihadic doctrine instead of a soldier for Islamic supremacism?

All this shows the bottom line: Trump was right to pull out of the debate.

The GOP is imploding. If the GOP establishment and the RINOs had gone after the Democrats the way they’re going after Donald Trump, we would have been on a winning streak this past decade. They have done this for years to my colleagues and me. But when they try it with Trump, this is a target too big to ignore. The curtain has been pulled back: average Republicans now see what the GOP establishment has been doing to them for decades.

Maybe this is what is needed, so as to expose Fox definitively and bring down the clueless, corrupt and compromised Republican establishment. Conservatives and the principled right have no media outlet — none. Is there not a conservative billionaire who can buy HLN or some failing liberal news outlet and relieve our abject misery? And while yes, I endorse Cruz, you can rest assured that if Donald Trump gets the nomination, I will vigorously support his candidacy with everything I have. Because that’s what we do. That’s who we are. And these men – Roger Ailes, William Kristol, Glenn Beck, Erick Erickson, Andrew McCarthy, John Podhoretz, and the rest – are yesterday’s men, as you will see as history steamrolls over the failed, weak and corrupt Republican Party they represent.

  • atl slayer

    Wonderful article Ms. Pamela :)

    • Guest

      Her observation is outstanding:
      “If the GOP establishment and the RINOs had gone after the Democrats the way they’re going after Donald Trump, we would have been on a winning streak this past decade.”

  • Patti York

    I know that you support Cruz, but you have to admit, Trump is a REAL nightmare for the left. Their messiah Obama will be gone in about a year and they are now eating their hearts out watching this happen ,,,

    • Millionmileman

      Everybody is so fixated on the stupid percentage of who’s in the lead that the nightmare is Trumps overall favorably rating is around 69% of any candidate, on either side of the aisle. That makes him un-electable period. To be President he is going to need 51% of the vote and he cannot even get o 40% among Republicans.

      The Candidate with the most favorable is actually Ted Cruz. If Trump is elected then the country is finished. In the past 4 months all I’ve heard is “How great he is!” We need leadership not more narcissism.

      • Kyron Walsh

        Not so, Trump is getting 20% of the Democrat vote and climbing all the time… Couple that with the fact that most Republicans will vote for him once he is their candidate and he will win the election. Polls show him beating Hillary already and that doesn’t count the number of people who will support him come election time…

        • MistyDawn

          I am a former Dem and my family and friends are still Dems but they can not stand Cruz and his whiny voice and they love Trump. I think Trump can pull more of the Independent and Dem voters than Cruz.Trump is more electable in my opinion and he is steadfast in his building a wall,deportation of illegals and not allowing more moslems in to the country

          • Dave J Lawson

            Agree only Trump can stop the jihadi flood. The RINO’s like Nikki won’t http://tinyurl.com/na4mxlp

          • Joannie

            Amen to your comments. I’m not going to be so critical here that everyone jumps down my throat, but Cruz’s whiny voice and his pointy finger causes the “mute” button on my remote to engage. HA!

      • DVult

        There is a difference between narcissism and self confidence.

        • Joannie

          YES! Trump is a motivator. His rallies are better than going to an Amway meeting! HA!

      • gothamette

        No point arguing about it on the internet.

        See you in a few months. Trump is our next president.

  • nobamunism

    The GOPe is progressive and collectivist. You can’t be a little bit progressive because in the end there is just as much taxing, spending, and disregard for the constitution in the uniparty.

  • Tina

    More & more I’m beginning to believe that nearly ALL the politicians in the west are in bed with the Arabs & receiving large “donations” from them. It’s a level of greed & corruption that is mind boggling, as evidenced by your examples above. What else can explain Trump’s own party attacking him so viciously?

    • Dave J Lawson

      you are Right. He is not going to bow down to any pressure from vested interests , crony capitalist and worse Arab and iranian cash to work against American interests.

      Ted cruz has taken millions in low interest loans from Goldman sachs and citibank and you think he will increase tax on them like Trump ? No way.

      Ted is a fake constitutionalist . He did not give up his canadian citizenship even after he became senator and only gave it up last month . what a fake puppet for crony capitalist .He is after the power and money not for American interests.

      • Charles Martel

        I do not trust Cruz, Rubio, Bush, or Christi. Paul is too much of a purist, and Trump scares. Would he be another imperial president unable, or unwilling to listen without having to impose HIS will?

        I like what Kasich said when asked about reimposing sanctions on Iran, taking into account that most European countries are already making investments in Iran. He said something to the effect that at some point we will all have to get together and forget money. It’s obvious he understand the true threat we are facing.

        But Dr. Carson is my candidate. He is completely out of the Washington/NY elite crowd. He understands the Islamic threat, and he is definitely conservative. Like Trump his campaign money does not come from the Middle East, or any big foreign power buyers. I believe that in spite of his quiet demeanor, he speaks softly but carries a big stick, and also important, is capable of thinking outside the box.

        I truly do not know. We are in such a dark place that only a miracle can save us.

        • Dave J Lawson

          his flat of 10% on all shows he is no economist but wooly brained economic bimbo.
          Never Run a large organisation, never created jobs, like Trump has ,hence Carson is not presidential material.

    • paperpushermj

      Let me count the ways

    • Charles Martel

      Talking about dark influences in the GOP, we cannot forget Karl Rove. He is the person responsible for bringing Arab money and influence into the party. By his own admission, he is an operative, and not a policy man. All he cares about is money, power, and influence.

      There are some very dark influential characters in the GOP that have been harming the country for very long. Even the Tea Party has been infiltrated. I fully agree with you. At this point there is no conservative or liberal ideology in the top leadership of both parties. They all belong to a political elite, whose members protect themselves inside and outside of the three branches of government, and for whom the NWO is the future at the expense of the common man.

  • EJO

    And speaking of Reagan. . .

    This is what a real President sounds like when addressing the nation. And boy do I wish we had another one just like him running for Pres. this time around.

    • Patricia

      Thirty years ago – I remember that day vividly. Time has flown by me.

  • William

    The candidacy of Donald Trump has brought out, has exposed, has ripped off the masks of all the phony Republicans who have been responsible for the degradation of the party, and most importantly, of the country. They are actually outing themselves. It is unbelievable. The phony Republicans, the RINOs, are actually outing themselves for everyone to see. All these years we could only guess who were the RINOs. Now they are doing all of us a tremendous service. They are exposing themselves. And we are seeing their pathetic faces, which they used to hide behind smiling masks. Now we see faces that are angry and vindictive. Trump has been able to expose the charade. Trump has single-handedly forced them to rip off their masks. Look at their pathetic faces. Sometimes it is shocking because there are some who I would never have suspected of being charlatans. It is just incredible. One man has had the power to do it. And he did it indirectly. He has lit a fuse in the pants of the RINOs and they lose control of themselves. In their exasperation, they are ripping the masks from their face. They are no longer able to maintain their deception.

    • Kyron Walsh

      Most of the key topics would not even be on the table without Trump! He has single handedly torn apart political correctness and brought forward issues (like banning Muslims) which NO OTHER CANDIDATE WOULD HAVE SURVIVED BRINGING UP!!! You have to admit that he is our special weapon… Whose arsenal is deadly yet the enemy (within the GOP & without) has no weapon which has worked in even slowing his incredible relentless gains and his ultimate ascendancy to the Presidency. He is EXACTLY what America needs right now. People wake up… Trump is inevitable!

    Ms Pamela, thank you for the person you are. Not a day goes by that this descendant of Lebanese Maronite Christians does not visit your web site for the informative , way you present real life and this looming disaster of Radical Muslims. With Trump, whom I support, versus Cruz, we shall agree to disagree. Let us more agree to the real task at hand, Jihad and those we must face. Bless you , God protect you and may your enemies be eliminated.

      Where are all the “moderate” muslims again? Because I’m not noticing them in any islamic state or Dearbornistan, Michigan. Maybe they’re hanging out w/all the “moderate” nazis.

      • Benton Marder

        ‘Moderate’ Muslims may well be absolutely fearful for their lives and those of their families should they speak out against Jihad, against Hijra. They do know what their co-religionists are capable of doing.

    • Joannie

      Amen.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Whatever the decision on who does what, now and only now it the time for discussion and constructive disagreement. Once a candidate is chosen, the only chance for winning is to be cohesive, persuading undecided voters to vote. Take notice of the Canadian practice of “strategic” voting, it could work in the United Stated, the problem in Canada is that it was used to elect liberals. Pay attention and beware.

    • Luigi Valentino

      Ted would know something about Canada.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Maybe, but he has better things to do than watch the liberal socialists in Canada run it into the ground.

  • Tunedin

    Brilliant Pamela ! And very funny if not tragic the GOP going after their own more than the Dems.!!
    It is a bizarre situation that many years ago would only be worth a comic sketch
    RINO’s have no idea about basic psychology and why they also haven’t figured out what empowers muslims either. Our weakness and coddling empowers muslims. Slamming Trump empowers him and his supporters, so is futile.
    Nothing more stupid than a stupid politician who never learns but as long as their stupidity works for Trump neither he nor his supporters could care less.

  • Denis

    between the political races in the USA, Europe surrendering to jihad and the economy I feel Atlas Shrugged coming to life in my lifetime!

    Go @realDonaldTrump don’t even have to open your mouth and your #WINNING 🇺🇸 not Whining like @tedcruz 🇨🇦
    Pamela you might as well give in. Trump will Win! Pam I love you and support you but Ted Cruz is an idiot and technically is not even a natural born citizen. Mama Cruz queefed him out on foreign soil. There has NEVER been a POTUS born anywhere but on United States soil and there never will.

    • Luigi Valentino

      Here is the latest poll after the debate…

    • itchy

      I hope your right Luigi but I got a funny feeling he will be framed on some trumped up conspiracy or end up like JFK. There is something brewing against him, let alone allow the middle class have there vote

    • abinc

      The 1802 Naturalization Law is still in effect. It defines a natural born citizen. Included in the definition is a person born of an American Citizen mother and a father who was a legal resident of the US at the time of the person’s birth. Ted Cruz meets these criteria. The Kenyan Capon on the other hand was born of a woman who might actually be unknown: it has not been proven that Stanley Ann Dunham was his birth mother. His father, Obama Sr. was in the US on a student visa. He was NOT a legal resident at the time of the Kenyan Capon’s birth. The whole presidency of this “person” has been a fraud. He was ineligible for the presidency and needs to be impeached, tried for (among other things) treason and if convicted, sentenced to the harshest punishment possible.

      • Dave J Lawson

        when trump was born his mother was not US citizen

  • itchy

    You have to think what the end game for these attackers of Trump. Media want the county to be a toilet because it gives them fodder to keep there programs in the ratings. The media are whores. As for the other Republicans runners, Well the same old talk talk talk but they are 7 years behind. Trump is the only one to go at the problems of today head on and everybody but the middle class don’t like it. OK he has made mistakes but like Reagan who was not very good when taking the presidency became a very good one. The way to make America great again has been spelled out, but apart from Trump, The rest are just white noise and middle class people have had enough. As for the democrats Well just look at the mess they have caused. Barack Osamas 2007 slogan should have been…..Yes I cant. A very dangerous person and people are waking up to him and his feet kissers.

  • abinc

    Good.

  • Kyron Walsh

    TRUMP 2016! Great article, Pamela… You are a Patriot and keep up the great work!

  • Thank you for this article.
    You are a mature woman.

    I have to say though–I have never seen such hateful people in my whole, entire life as I have seen from these “Conservative” people who are claiming to be Christian.
    All of the Christians I know in my life are nice people.

    These “Christians” against Trump are just fine with the people THEY like and THEIR walk to redemption, but not Mr. Trump.

    Trump is a dirty, rotten sinner who supports ‘partial birth abortion’ even though he changed his mind to pro-life some years ago. All they had to do was look it up, but they are more comfie believing he is ha’satan.

    On Twitter, I have been attacked relentlessly by these humans.
    Hundreds of Tweets flying at me as I tried to be patient. But, they have NO patience.. NONE.

    When I kept telling them, over and over: I like both cand’s and am OK with both cand’s, they just kept attacking Trump with lies that were so absurd… Reminded me of 5th grade bullies.

    I advised them: Try to be positive, but the attacks against Trump just kept coming.
    When I refuted them with facts from reputable fact check sites, it’s like they were foaming at the mouth, angry with the truth.
    The truth is, they were posting LIES.

    People: Go to youtube, look up “UNTRUTH, Donald Trump”
    You will see these media slimes and how they LIE about Trump daily.
    Its sickening!!!!!!!!!

    Again, ty for this article.
    And, YES, if Cruz was to get the nom, yes, I would vote for him.
    But, Trump, IMHO is the man for the times.

    BTW: You Anti Trump attackers, it is because of YOU that I am totally gung ho with Trump now.
    You scare the sh’t out of me.

    • Kyron Walsh

      Trump 2016!!!

    • Sandi 216

      I’m sorry you’ve run into such unpleasant people. However, I’ve had the same experience in the opposite direction and, I believe, there are many more people who are pro-Trump than anti-Trump. Unfortunately, there are a significant number of unreasonable, irrational, stubborn, closed-minded, vitriolic Trump supporters. Generally, many are unable to even have a civil conversation about political concerns or issues. I’ve found they are generally unable to discuss any specifics regarding the issues, Trump’s plans, etc.

      I’m undecided and like a couple of our candidates but have reservations about every one of them. I like some of what I’ve heard Trump say but a lot seems to disregard the constitution, would be impossible to perform and is merely rhetoric or wishful thinking. I haven’t seen much of a “presidential” temperament, tact or diplomacy either and that concerns me.

      Personally, I wish Trump had participated in this last debate because it was actually very good, emphasizing immigration, security and ISIS – very substantive. If the Trump supporters were able to civilly discuss these things it sure would be helpful. But it sounds like rudeness can go in either direction – it’s going to be rough for all of us between now and November, MJ!

      • Benton Marder

        Perhaps it is just as well that Donald was absent. He tends to suck all the oxygen out of a room. His absence allowed the others to breathe and shine.
        FoxNews would have been better to have used moderators such as Harris Faulkner or Stewart Varney or Matha McCallum rather than Megyn Kelly and Bret Baier., but that’s not the choice Roger Ailes made.
        The scene of Megyn and Michael reminede me somewhat of that old movie of ‘Beauty and the Beast’—-most unbecoming in this circumstance.

      • Dave J Lawson

        All issues you talk about have been addressed by Trump(check previous debates and his speeches in rallies and interviews ) ………and he does not need the silly “debate” which was only about FOX making another dozen millions by fooling folks like you.

        It was only for losers to tarnish their images further in eyes of voters.

      • People are REACTING to the Cruz folks, Sandi.

        Trumpists are not listening because their FAITH is being attacked. When a group gets together and attacks others for not being “Jewish enough or Christian enough”, you’re in for a BIG fight.
        And, then there is the CONSTANT defamation that Ms. Geller is talking about in this article. Ditto Michael Savage’s article “Purists vs Pragmatists”.

        The debate was very boring imo because the next possible (and highest polling) President was not there. He commands the stage every time. He has won all of the debates already. He is the one with the charisma. He is the one with the strength. People are looking for strength right now because the nation is GONE.

        Alas, Megyn Kelly was more important to Fox news that this nation. She should have sat it out, but her career is more important than the country.
        Kelly is a biased person who is pushing Communist propaganda talking points re. ‘war on women.’ IT DOES NOT EXIST.

        Asking about Tweets from 4 years ago is NOT an issue to American people, Sandi. Most Americans do not even know what Twitter is.

        The job of a moderator is:
        1. Ask Questions
        2. Keep time
        3. Remain *UNBIASED*

        Kelly is the Candy Crowley of Faux news. She did not address ALL of the candidates with this fake ‘war on women’. Just Trump. BIASED.
        The GOP should go ahead and run her for President. She has an even lefter view of homosexual marriage and feminism than Trump had years ago.

        Lastly, all anyone has to do is go to the website “On the issues” Type in Trump or Cruz or Rubio.
        All of the issues are there & we are all adults.

        You are not going to find the Trumpists listening to a thing they have to say as long as they feel threatened.
        Sorry, it is what it is. They already are attacked enough from the rabid left.

        I didn’t attack the Cruz camp AT ALL – *until* they started dumping on me for being a BAD Jew-Jew.
        Then, I had a few very bad days and now have moved on.

        I know the negatives about Trump and I know the negatives about Cruz.
        I wont post the negatives about Cruz because I respect Ms. Geller and she can look these things up herself.

        Blessings, have a great wknd ♥

        PS:
        Go to youtube, look up “UNTRUTH, Donald Trump”

      • Joannie

        Debates are NOT informative. Interviews ARE informative. Rallies are motivators. Read some of the best, conservative articles that you can possibly find on the Internet. Read, read, read. We already know what the “left” is doing, saying and thinking; however, read what the “right” is thinking and doing. Two radio talk shows are good for behind the scenes information.

    • Don’t ever change, MJ! XOXO

  • Dave

    I don’t think Trump has done himself a service with some of the vitriolic language, but by the same token, Megan Kelly is full of herself. Now that Roger Ailes is supporting her lock stock and barrel, she will be insufferable.

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    If the Repubs self-destruct that will guarantee a win for Shillariah, the sweetheart of the islamic-nazi world.

  • Michael Garfinkel

    Pamela Geller has hit it out of the park with this piece.

    Roger Ailes, Bill Kristol, John Podhoretz, George Will, et al, have become far too comfortable in their self-appointed roles as “voices of reason” while the American ship of state continues to take on water.

    Indeed, insofar as Trump is concerned, they have shown themselves to be every bit as close-minded, parochial and elitist as the leftists they despise.

    I deliberately exclude Megyn Kelly from that list; Trump is right to refer to her as a “lightweight,” but lets give credit where credit is due: Kelly is a world-class self-promoter who puts even Bill O’Reilly to shame.

    Trump has many flaws, it’s true. But he has something that the public senses, but which many of the “elites” refuse to acknowledge: Trump has the potential for greatness.

    Bismarck is reputed to have said that “God looks after drunks and the United States of America.

    The rise of Donald Trump may very well be a new proof of that ancient aphorism.

  • Drew the Infidel

    In listing the useless establishment cadavers you omitted Grover Norquist. As for your idea of a billionaire buying a failing network, an intriguing idea is Trump buying the failing and diminishing Al Jazeera, a.k.a. “Raghead Central”. To your point, the angry GOP voters, and they are legion, have hijacked this election, the establishment types be damned.

  • Lady Gwnyfar

    Spot on. And I also respected your piece calling trump out as nomination material when that was the topic of the day and appropriate… right when when many conservatives were afraid to discuss his obvious/potential flaws out in the open

  • conan_drum

    Cruz is an evangelical and a crazy creationist. the most reactionary and regressive element of society. Cruz would be a dangerous POTUS. I am disappointed that you support him Pamela. In any case I doubt he could get elected

    I read and posted at Breitbart for many months. The following is what worries me about Mr. Trump; his loyal supporters. They aren’t all like this Breitbart reader but many are:

    John Green • 8 hours ago

    Of course Geller doesn’t support Trump. The word has come down from Rabbi central that she and all her coreligionists all supposed to do everything possible to see that Trump isn’t elected. Otherwise all those carefully laid plans to wreck yet another country (the US) are going to be wasted. Elect Trump and we’ll see the end of their open borders movement and the war against the 2nd Amendment come to a screeching halt. For starters. Trump. Landslide. 2016 & 2020.

    Just think the message that would have been sent to the establishment Rinos and the Faux media and all the msn news outlets if Cruz had skipped the debate and joined up with Trump,Santorum and Huckabee at the fund raiser? Too bad he put politically correct policy over integrity and let this historic moment go by. I admire Trump for standing his ground and not letting these shills take him down with their planted illegal and moslem attackers. I love it that the ambush was thwarted and Kelly didn’t get to change the out come of the Republican Presidential race as she so smugly declared she was going to do!! Donald J. Trump you are a hero to all hard working patriotic Americans and our fearless warriors and vets!!! Go Trump.TRUMP 2016!!

    Trump could be molded to our side of thinking. We just need to feed is ego. You just have to say nice things about Trump and befriend him and he will be loyal to you. The moment you betray him, he will shut you out and refuse to listen to you. This is why I was so disappointed with this Trump / Cruz fight. Opportunity lost. Trump has turned against some Conservative principals just to fight Cruz

    I turned off fox debate; I viewed Trump and the veterans and was very impressed with the noisy, enthusiastic and heartfelt support that Mr. Trump received from a very large audience of appreciative veterans. Santorum and Huckabee were well received also and Trump provided these two men with several minutes each to speak to the audience. Both were very gracious and spoke well in behalf of the veterans’ poor treatment by Obama.

    • Luigi Valentino

      I found it to be extremely diplomatic of Trump’s invitations to Santorum and Huckabee, both his adversaries. I know Trump will be stellar in the foreign relations department.

  • Gordon Miller

    Yes, Pamela, Trump was very unfair to you with respect to Garland. We all know that and, frankly, still hold it against him for his thoughtless remarks.

  • Mike Knox

    Who thought FOX NEWS was Conservative? And of course every person you mention has a “right” to voice their opinion of Mt Trump. So what is the point of your article Pamela? Mr Trump has vociferous supporters and equally vociferous critics. Since you support Ted Cruz I’d prefer to see articles about Ted. But for the next year or so “it’s a free country” so anyone can write anything they want, right?

    • Are you willing to hear the negatives about Cruz as well as Trump?

    • Luigi Valentino

      That Cartoon of Trump is blasphemy! Who ever drew it should be beheaded. Right, Pamela!

    Pamela Geller finally gets an epiphany regarding Trump. However, her support for Cruz is baffling. Cruz has been a part of the problem on immigration and the destruction of America’s middle class. Cruz wants more H1B visas, which means no jobs for Americans in high tech as the Oligarchs can hire indentured servants from overseas, making the Oligarchs richer and America poorer. Now the TPP will take the engineering jobs away as well! At least Geller has made progress!

    • wildjew

      You make my point about Trump-supporters. Unless a person is all-in for Donald Trump; unless you are a mindless Trump cultist, any attempt to give Trump credit or to fault his critics, the person is met with contempt, derision and ridicule.

      • WJ: Are ya willing to hear the negatives about Trump as well as Cruz?

        • wildjew

          I am willing to hear negatives about all these Republican contenders. Why?

  • s;vbkr0boc,klos;

    I am still waiting for the next McDoleney loser that I am supposed to hold my nose and vote for. Trump, whatever happens, marks the end of RINO charades.

    Pamela. I know you have issues with Trump and he does say things he shouldn’t. But that doesn’t means he can’t beat Hillary. The fact is Cruz can’t. Hillary fears Trump and not Cruz. Although, he is effulgent and a Constitutionalist, it means very little as being a perspicacious president.

  • Joannie

    I will say, plain and simple. I will be voting for Donald Trump. The magazine covers are pitiful. If someone had put a Muslim on a magazine cover like that, all hell would break loose.

    Ms. Geller, even Ted Cruz knows and admits that he is not eligible.J.B. Williams of the North American Law Center possesses a sworn affidavit from an individual who reportedly interviewed Ted Cruz in 2012 when he was seeking his U.S. Senate seat and was told by Cruz that a “natural born Citizen” is a person “born in the U.S. to citizen parents.”In a campaign interview during his freshman senate race, a GOP Texas State Committee member sat down with the young candidate to ask a few poignant vetting questions, and here are the questions and answers from that interview… (Redacted information is to protect the witness at this moment, but the witness is willing to offer sworn testimony.)

    Interviewer: “Hello Mr. Cruz, it’s a pleasure to meet you. My name is (redacted). I am a (redacted) County GOP Precinct Chair and you have my support and vote. I have one question for you if I may?”Cruz: “Sure, go ahead.”Interviewer: “What is your understanding of how one becomes a natural born Citizen?”Cruz: “Two citizen parents and born on the soil.”Interviewer: “Not exactly, but as I don’t have enough time to fully explain how one does become an natural born Citizen, based on your understanding, would you agree that Barack Obama is ineligible to be POTUS?”Cruz: “I would agree.”Interviewer: “So when we get you elected, will you expose him for the usurping fraud he is?”Cruz: “No, my main focus will be on repealing Obamacare.”Interviewer: “But Mr. Cruz, if he is exposed as the usurping fraud he is, everything he has done will become null and void. Everything!”Interviewer: “At that point, Cruz reiterated his main concern, so it was obvious the conversation was over as far as Cruz was concerned. I thanked him for his time and wished him success in the runoff.”

    2) Trump plans to force peace talks – a la Obama?

    Ahead of Israel trip, Trump places onus for lack of peace deal on Israel, saying it has to prove if it’s ‘willing to sacrifice.’

    Good article Pamela.

  • scocope

    What was very telling was the conservation Kelly and Wallace had after the debate. They shared that they were disappointed that the candidates did not go after each other as much as they tried to get them to do. They even explained that several of the questions were written for the purpose of obtaining fireworks between them but it did not work out that way. And people wonder why Trump did not trust Kelly and Fox news?

  • livingat45north

    Ted Cruz is for a bigger gov’t, bigger programs, which means an even bigger deficit. The only true conservative is Rand Paul, he’s the only one that’s come out and said dollar-for-dollar where he’d cut programs to balance the budget.

  • S Whitten

    Pamela,
    Not trying to tell you who to vote for, but if Cruz is the nominee I must stay home. According to the Constitution he claims to uphold, he is ineligible.
    Born in Canada of a Cuban father makes it so. Two wrongs don’t make a right.

    We need a Trump/Geller ticket. He would be sure to win with Pamela as Vice President!✨🇺🇸✨

    So, about 20 min. ago I walked past the “Downtown Islamic Center” on S. State St. in Chicago. Outside the front door, standing on the sidewalk, was a large armed goon with a ballistic vest and a badge.

    “the dictum of Walter Ulbricht, General Secretary of the East German Communist Party: if the people don’t vote the way you want, ‘Change the people.'”
    It’s interesting that the Democrats have had the same policy for more than 50 years. Hence their long-term program of electioneering through immigration.

    The 11th commandment isn’t Reagan’s. To wit:

    “The personal attacks against me [Ronald Reagan]during the primary finally became so heavy that the state Republican chairman, GAYLORD PARKINSON, postulated what he called the Eleventh Commandment: Thou shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican. It’s a rule I [Reagan] followed during that campaign and have ever since.”

  • Charles Martel

    Pamela, this is why I admire and respect you so much. The fact that you are supporting one candidate does not blind you from the nasty reality around you.
    Obama won in 2012, probably, because supporters of other candidates, too full of themselves, were upset their candidate was not the nominee, and decided to stay home. I hope they are paying dearly for their stupidity. We all are, but hope their suffering is three times worse.

  • wildjew

    Tucker Carlson wrote a piece for Politico today: “Donald Trump Is Shocking, Vulgar and Right.” Carlson thinks Trump is a conservative. He might hold on to his wallet. If Trump is elected president, Americans with assets better hope and pray we have a fiscally conservative Congress to reign in Mr. Trump’s tax-raising instincts.

    “Trump attempted a more serious pose, traveling to Capitol Hill to tell a congressional committee that he thought they should raise taxes on the rich. Reagan tax cuts that had reduced the maximum rate to 31 percent ought to be abandoned, he said. A top rate of 50 or 60 percent would be better for the country.

    I like Ted Cruz and Ben Carson, but the simple fact is they cannot win. Trump is uniting everyday americans against career politicians.

    It isn’t a Left /Right dichotomy but a Top/Bottom dynamic that is fueling Trump. Everyone is tired of being told who to like while the elite ship our jobs overseas and flood our country with cheap illegial immigrant labor. Populism. Trump is the only one talking about stopping open borders . He has my vote. The more the RINOs attack him the more the people like him.
