Confirmed: No Criminal Charges Against Trump Campaign Manager

Confirmed: No Criminal Charges Against Trump Campaign Manager

Fields floats filing a civil complaint

As Professor Jacobson blogged yesterday, reports suggested the Florida prosecutor would not be filing charges against Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, for the alleged assault of former Breitbart News reporter, Michelle Fields. The backstory on that dramatic saga here.

In a press conference Thursday, prosecutors confirmed they would not charge Lewandowski.

The legal battles are far from over though. Michelle Fields has suggested she may file a civil complaint against Trump and Lewandowksi for defamation.

The incident ballooned when Trump’s campaign opted to attack Fields rather than apologize for the incident:

Remember that Trump’s campaign publicly lashed out at Fields, calling her “delusional”.

That was a brutal press conference. Basically trashed her argument completely.

    Gunstar1 in reply to PhillyGuy. | April 15, 2016 at 2:28 pm

    Actually it did not. It simply said that while he did it, he has a legal argument as to a legitimate reason why he did it.

    Which is why it went from liar I never touched you to oh, I was protecting Trump.

    One will get you prosecuted for battery, the other is a legal defense that only appeared later when it was shown Lewandowski lied.

Dear Michelle,

Shut up and go away. Reporters already have a bad enough image, you haven’t helped them.

Yet ANOTHER nauseating ‘Michelle.’

What a putz. Both of them.

Why wouldn’t she sue for battery?

No matter, her on the witness stand would be disastrous.

Delusional is the nicest thing one might say about Fields. Give them credit for not saying Fields is a mentally ill attention seeking douche bag snowflake princess giving all working women everywhere a bad name.

Those who hate Trump beyond human imagination dwell in the land of Disturbia, I fear.

    The vitriol directed toward Trump has far exceeded any other candidate, including Obama who promised redistributive change, and a pro-choice religious/legal/social/etc. establishment. The only explanation is that while Obama promised to remold the nation in his image, Trump poses a direct threat to the Parties, their parties, and special and peculiar interests. The perception of a common threat reveals their overlapping and convergent interests.

      Cogent and insightful, N.N. I concur.

      Trump poses a direct threat to the Parties, their parties, and special and peculiar interests. Peculiar interests, does that mean $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ ??

        rabidfox in reply to amwick. | April 14, 2016 at 7:26 pm

        Amwick, the bottom line is always $$$$ and it doesn’t make any difference what letter is after the name of the politician. Or even what country – Putin has millions in Panamanian banks, Hugo Chavez died a billionaire and his political successor is worth millions, the Castros aren’t doing too badly either while the children of the Chinese political class are called “Prince and Princesses” for very good reasons.

          amwick in reply to rabidfox. | April 14, 2016 at 7:47 pm

          Yup. An interesting study, on a news program showed the net worth of our Senators and Representatives, before and then after they took office. It was staggering. Not a D or an R thing, as you mentioned.

          Putin is not a politician. Nor was Chavez.

          Both murderous fascist dictators.

          Not a good analogy to the hacks hogging the leadership positions of the corrupt GOP. Yet.

      clintack in reply to n.n. | April 14, 2016 at 8:57 pm

      I think you’re forgetting the vitriol directed towards Sarah Palin and her children eight years ago.

      But otherwise I agree. The sheer hatred directed proudly and openly towards Trump without a shred of self-awareness is breathtaking.

JournoLism or congested crowd dynamics.

great unknown | April 14, 2016 at 7:06 pm

All she needs is to file a suit against either the police or Trump for defamation. Because she still has the “minor” detail of filing a false police report hanging over her head.

The saddest thing, for me, is not the lengths to which politically biased “journalists” will go to bring down Trump. It is how usually responsible, principled human beings like the bloggers on this site allow their biases to drag them down into the mud with the slime denizens.

What happened to due process? What happened to waiting for evidence? Or has this site joined the mob baying that if a female makes an accusation of assault, we have to believe her, based on her word alone?

I cry.

    BrianMacker in reply to great unknown. | April 14, 2016 at 7:28 pm

    She didn’t file a false police report however. He did in fact grab her and pull her out of the way. In the process bruising her. Depending on mens rea that could or could not be a crime. The prosecutor decided that Fields motives were innocent. She didn’t make up the incident.

      BrianMacker in reply to BrianMacker. | April 14, 2016 at 7:29 pm

      I meant to write that the prosecutor decided that Lewandowski’s motives were innocent.

      PhillyGuy in reply to BrianMacker. | April 14, 2016 at 8:38 pm

      If you heard the press conference, they dont believe those bruises were from Lewandowski. In fact, after looking at photos she provided them, they found no bruising at all. It’s obvious they don’t believe a single thing she said..including the “bruises.”

        Ragspierre in reply to PhillyGuy. | April 14, 2016 at 8:45 pm

        Yah, no. That’s a lie and you’re a liar.

          PhillyGuy in reply to Ragspierre. | April 14, 2016 at 9:06 pm

          Your stupidity is astounding. Here’s what the Chief Asst DA Adrienne Ellis said

          “But Ellis said that photo was taken days later, and that a picture shot with Fields’ iPhone on the night of the incident indicated no bruises at all.

          ‘The initial photos that we received were a couple days old,’ Ellis said, calling it a case of ‘delayed reporting.’

          ‘She had taken a photograph on her iPhone that same evening, and there was really nothing there.’

          ‘It wasn’t anything that was anything remotely close’ to what the later picture showed,’ Ellis said, confirming that ‘her phone did not show any bruising.’

          Obviously they didn’t believe Fields.

          Ragspierre in reply to Ragspierre. | April 14, 2016 at 9:20 pm

          The detectives DID.

          You’re a lying liar who lies. The prosecutors NEVER hinted they didn’t believe Fields.

          MOSTLY because that isn’t their job, and it would be wildly inappropriate.

          What they DID say…and ALLLLLLLLLLLLL they did say…is that they could not proceed under the law.

          But feel free to lie some more. It is what you do.

          healthguyfsu in reply to Ragspierre. | April 14, 2016 at 9:29 pm

          Rags, your attempts to drown out others with name calling remind me of some political front runner I keep hearing about in the news. You’re becoming what you hate.

          PhillyGuy in reply to Ragspierre. | April 14, 2016 at 9:35 pm

          Pugs I think you are a blithering idiot. Point by point they dismantled what she said to them. After the press conference, there was nothing left of her story that anyone could believe. That was very clear. Did they go out and say “this Michelle Fields woman is a jerk?” No but they showed you they didn’t believe her story at all.

          Even the bruises part was not believable.

        Gunstar1 in reply to PhillyGuy. | April 15, 2016 at 2:32 pm

        Actually, it was just that since the initial and later images were so far apart, it could be argued that it was fake, not that they were fake.

        When prosecuting someone, you have to look at all the evidence. If the defense can give reasonable doubt to your evidence, your case is weak.

        The prosecutor is explaining the weaknesses in a case, not saying he believes they were faked.

    Yes, it’s called Trump Derangement Syndrome for non-frivolous reasons.

    I’ve had to rethink that “responsible, principled” part, though. I may be remembering a Golden Age which in fact never existed.

Why has no one asked Ms. Fields why she disobeyed the orders for the press to stay in the rear? I haven’t heard one so-called journalist ask that question. She started this whole debacle. Mr. Lewandowski isn’t off the hook, either. He should not have grabbed her and he should not have lied when he said he didn’t touch her. There has been too much time, manpower, and tax payer money spent on this ridiculous incident. Give it up, Ms. Fields, you were the instigator and you were wrong.

    gmac124 in reply to JoAnne. | April 14, 2016 at 9:55 pm

    If that is such a big deal why wasn’t the reporter that Trump talked to just before this incident taken down? She wasn’t the first reporter to ask questions while Trump was exiting and from my understanding that is SOP for Trump and reporters while he exits. I believed at first that Corey just needed to apologize but I am not even sure that was even needed now. If they would have acknowledged the contact at the time nothing would have come of this incident. Instead they attacked her and elevated her to news.

    Zachary in reply to JoAnne. | April 15, 2016 at 12:11 am

    Oh cute, the old “the cops on 911 call told Zimmerman not to pursue Trayvon” routine. Weird how false narratives parallel each other.

OnTheLeftCoast | April 14, 2016 at 7:52 pm

Fields wants to have it both ways. She’s going to break the rules by leaving the press area after the press conference is over and pursuing Trump to try to get a question she feels entitled to ask. She gets between him and his protection, and she’s willing to put a hand on him when asking her questions. Pretty aggressive behavior for a reporter.

Trump, having had more beautiful women than Fields try the “I’ll establish intimacy by touching you when I shouldn’t because I’m pretty” thing doesn’t buy it so he pulls away.

Lewandowski then pulls _her_ away, and instead of shrugging it off it as what happens when you’re being an aggressive reporter, she goes “you huuuurt me. I’m just a pretty girl and you huuurt me. You’re meeeean.”

Now she’s threatening to sue.

I’ve watched several of the videos since the beginning, and it struck me that Lewandowski was behaving very much like one of the security team. It’s come out since then that it’s often the case for campaign insiders to take on that role. According to the prosecutor’s statement, Lewandowski had a defensible claim that he was acting to protect Trump, not that this would settle the matter, but the reasonable doubt it would introduce would make it all but impossible to get a conviction.

    Ragspierre in reply to James IIa. | April 14, 2016 at 8:50 pm

    You’ll find that Lewandowski is a frustrated almost-was LEO.

    All he had to do is apologize, but instead he lied.

    He thereby involved his pre-pubescent girl boss’s hair-trigger drive to slime any perceived opponent.

    And the rest is history.

      PhillyGuy in reply to Ragspierre. | April 14, 2016 at 9:15 pm

      You are twisting this around to make it seem like Lewandowski did something wrong. He didn’t. There is nothing to apologize for. Whackjobs like you seem to think a stupid little girl’s false cry of help is strong enough to smear someone. It didn’t work.

        James IIa in reply to PhillyGuy. | April 15, 2016 at 9:24 am

        I agree with this. The prosecutor’s comments go beyond, “We’re not charging. No further comment”. They more or less said that they couldn’t get a conviction, and, given all the evidence, they’re not sure that a crime was committed (by CL). That’s not exactly an exoneration, but it’s close.

      Ragspierre in reply to Ragspierre. | April 14, 2016 at 9:24 pm

      Perhaps you’ll explain why Lewandowski’s lawyers were circulating a draft apology.

      See the video of the prosecutor’s press conference at about 4:20, lying liar who lies…

      Lady Killer Lewandwoski certain DID do several things wrong, you moron.

      One of them was lying. You should take warning.

        PhillyGuy in reply to Ragspierre. | April 14, 2016 at 9:37 pm

        That is bullsh**. You are delusional. Lewandowski was not charged by the prosecutor. He did nothing wrong. They essentially called into question Fields’ version of events. Read the story I linked. Stop being such a doofus.

          Gunstar1 in reply to PhillyGuy. | April 15, 2016 at 2:39 pm

          “He did nothing wrong. They essentially called into question Fields’ version of events.”

          This is incorrect. He did do something that could be characterized as wrong. However there are defenses to that act which he could put forward which would exonerate him.

          Either A: he did it for no reason or spite, that is a crime.
          or B: he was acting as a member of security, that is not a crime.

          The prosecutor said that he has a good argument for b, but not completely solid (actual security was not concerned and he initially lied about it). His defense is however plausable enough that they wont bring it to the court to decide.

          It absolutely in no way means that he did not do A and the prosecutor was not saying he did do B.

    Arminius in reply to James IIa. | April 14, 2016 at 9:56 pm

    If Lewandoski had a defensible claim he was acting to defend Trump, then that tweet accusing Fields of being delusional and asserting he had never touched her was false and defamatory.

    Not that Trumptards have a problem believing two contradictory stories at the same time. Why not? There’s plenty of room in their empty heads for “A” and “opposite of A” to roam around in at the same time. So depending on the circumstances they can go back and forth between “the lying bitch made the whole thing up he never touched her” to “he had to pull the evil bitch away from Trump she wasn’t obeying orders to stay to the rear” without it ever crossing what little passes for their minds that one of those stories must be a lie.

    But most people are not Trumptards. Most Republicans are not Trumptards. So should she sue she may well win.

Actually her public statements do agree with her perception. Go get on a bus or train with other buses or trains stopped next to you. While you are stopped have one start moving. Your brain will try to compensate for movement believing you are moving. The same thing happened to Michelle. When Corey pulled on her arm Trump started walking off at the same time. Her brain took it as she was yanked backwards to create the space between her and Trump.

As far as declining to prosecute I am not surprised at all. It was a fairly minimal contact that would have been difficult to get a conviction on. The real issue is why did they feel the need to attempt to cover up the incident? Without the cover up attempt this issue would have never gained any traction. In fact they wouldn’t have even needed to issue an apology. All they needed to say was as we were leaving the event a reporter was jostled as we were making our way to the exit. Instead they created a beast that will eventually sink his ship before he can reach the White House.

Donald Trump – He gets it or Why he has millions more votes than Cruz

From WSJ

Mr. Cruz has toured the country bragging about his voterless victory in Colorado. For a man who styles himself as a warrior against the establishment (you wouldn’t know it from his list of donors and endorsers), you’d think he would be demanding a vote for Coloradans. Instead, Mr. Cruz is celebrating their disenfranchisement.

Likewise, Mr. Cruz loudly boasts every time party insiders disenfranchise voters in a congressional district by appointing delegates who will vote the opposite of the expressed will of the people who live in that district.

That’s because Mr. Cruz has no democratic path to the nomination. He has been mathematically eliminated by the voters.

While I am self-funding, Mr. Cruz rakes in millions from special interests. Yet despite his financial advantage, Mr. Cruz has won only three primaries outside his home state and trails me by two million votes—a gap that will soon explode even wider. Mr. Cruz loses when people actually get to cast ballots. Voter disenfranchisement is not merely part of the Cruz strategy—it is the Cruz strategy.

The great irony of this campaign is that the “Washington cartel” that Mr. Cruz rails against is the very group he is relying upon in his voter-nullification scheme.

My campaign strategy is to win with the voters. Ted Cruz’s campaign strategy is to win despite them.

What we are seeing now is not a proper use of the rules, but a flagrant abuse of the rules. Delegates are supposed to reflect the decisions of voters, but the system is being rigged by party operatives with “double-agent” delegates who reject the decision of voters.

How have we gotten to the point where politicians defend a rigged delegate-selection process with more passion than they have ever defended America’s borders?

Perhaps it is because politicians care more about securing their private club than about securing their country.

Let us take inspiration from patriotic Colorado citizens who have banded together in protest. Let us make Colorado a rallying cry on behalf of all the forgotten people whose desperate pleas have for decades fallen on the deaf ears and closed eyes of our rulers in Washington, D.C.

The political insiders have had their way for a long time. Let 2016 be remembered as the year the American people finally got theirs.

    This looks like a letter a loser would write. He is complaining about things like he has already lost. If the voters really want this buffoon for president they can make it happen. I don’t believe they want him though and he knows it.

    The professor has already made his feelings known about posting articles from other sites. Post the link if you must, but do not copy and paste the bulk of an article from another site into comments.

      That is not the bulk of an article. Just select few paragraphs. If you don’t like it then run your little arse to the professor and have me banned. Otherwise stfu and leave me alone.

        Thank you.

          I will continue to post the way I’ve always posted. If you don’t like it then stop flapping your gums and do something about it. Otherwise stfu. Everyone here knows what is really the issue with you and it is the content of the speech you object to and nothing else.

          I suppose a comment section filled with no information and just juvenile name calling and vulgarity ala your favorite poster Ragspierre is what you dream of.

          If the authors at LI included some writers who weren’t all Cruzbots literally trolling their own site and commenters then maybe the commenters with different points of view wouldn’t feel the need to link to outside commentary and points of view in order to try an advance a balanced and more intelligent dicussion than arises from calling people “lying sacks of shit”.

Now can we get back to actual issues please?

Man, this post was like blood in the water. The rabid fanboyism is truly a wonder to behold.

Such desperation to clean up all the messes Trump makes. It has to be exhausting.

I don’t envy not pity your predicament.

I just buy lots of popcorn.

Trump, Kasich, and Cruz all spoke tonight, in that order, at New York GOP party gathering. At first I was confused by the order normally Trump goes last because TV likes to save the best and most popular draw for last. I watched Trump speak, and he was personable and persuasive and very well received. I skipped Kasich but went back to check out Cruz. It was then I realized why Cruz was speaking last.

This was a dinner gathering and Cruz was assigned the dinner service speaking slot. LOL. So while Cruz was speaking the entire audience was eating, having dinner conversation, not paying attention, clanking plates around, waiters running around, etc etc. Top that off with Cruz having mysterious television microphone problems making his own audio at least on TV horrible.

It was hilarious and obviously planned by New York GOP to give Cruz the sucks the big one speaking slot.

I guess even the New York GOP establishment didn’t take kindly to the unlikable Texans New York Values attacks. Not to mention one or two union audio techs also being offended.

Revenge is a dish best served cold. LOL !!

Cruz isn’t looking so good…

This latest FOX poll shows Cruz has slipped down 11 points during the last 30 days relative to Trump and only leads Kasich by 2 points at 27-25.

The downward trajectory shows Cruz supporters are leaving Cruz and switching to Trump and Kasich.

FOX News National Poll
4/11 – 4/13
419 RV
Trump 45%
Cruz 27%
Kasich 25%

Trump +18%

Since March 31 Trump has gained 13% on Cruz. Cruz’s dirty delegate fighting and his joining up with GOP establishment is hurting him with voters. When Trump’s domination on east coast and his vindication for supporting Lewandowski against the false charges by the snowflake crowd sink in Trump will go over 50% in these national polls.

This has gotta be driving some of you lawyers nuts. You had the rope bought & the tree branch picked out.

Thank you Voting Female. Luvin me some Dionne.
The song I distributed was Emmylou’s ‘Save the Last Dance for me.’ It was what party leadership told Cruz after they started in endorse him.

Prosecutors also noted how Fields lied to police including telling police and prosecutors she never touched Trump.

Ellis said Fields told her office that she had never touched Trump, but added: ‘That’s not what we see captured on the video.’

    So we’ll need some documentation.

      The link is in my post. If you want more info I shouldn’t have to tell you what you cand do with the link.

      I’m happy either way!

        Well review the video and take your complaints to the daily mail. Maybe they will explain to you that Prosecutor exists in a world outside tge video and can answer reporter questions both on the video and before and after the video. If you have proff the daily mail reporting is inaccurate I’m sure tgey would appreciate you letting them know. Report back how your discussions with them go.

Murdoch’s New York Post endorses Trump !

‘New York Values’: The Post Endorses Trump
Donald Trump
The Associated Press

by Breitbart News14 Apr 2016

From the NY Post:

Donald Trump is a rookie candidate — a potential superstar of vast promise, but making rookie mistakes. The nominee Republicans need for the fall campaign is often hard to make out amid his improvisations and too-harsh replies to his critics.

New Yorkers vote Tuesday. What to do?

Here’s how we see it.

Should he win the nomination, we expect Trump to pivot — not just on the issues, but in his manner. The post-pivot Trump needs to be more presidential: better informed on policy, more self-disciplined and less thin-skinned.

Yet the promise is clearly there in the rookie who is, after all, leading the field as the finals near.

Trump has electrified the public, drawing millions of new voters to the polls and inspiring people who’d given up on ever again having a candidate who’d fight for them.

That’s the work of the Donald Trump we know — a New Yorker, born and bred.

    Ragspierre in reply to Gary Britt. | April 15, 2016 at 10:34 am

    “Should he win the nomination, we expect Trump to pivot — not just on the issues, but in his manner.”

    Exactly right as to the first. Not so much as to the second.

    T-rump will drop the fraud that he’s anything but a Collectivist.

    He’ll break the hearts of the dupes that voted for him, with the exception of the Collectivists like Britt. They already know him, and support him for the Collectivist thug he is.

    The illusion that Cruz is viable has been shattered, Gary.

When this incident first surfaced, I mentioned that exigent circumstances could exist which would make an unwanted touching justified, In this article, the Palm Beach prosecutor makes that point. It is near the end of the article.

    3. the prosecutors totally never believed anything Fields said

      You’re just going to chant the same old, fully debunk lies about “voterless victory” in Colorado, where Republican voters DID vote.

      You are just a lying SOS. You know it, like it, work at it, and will never stop it.

      The voters chose Cruz. They eschew Donelle T-rump. Suck it.

        Truth hurts eh Rags. Tell your lies to the voters in Colorado who were disenfranchised by the GOP state party in Colorado. A state party whose chairman stated many months ago that the fix was in, it didn’t matter what Colorado voters wanted and that as a result of the fix “Donald Trump will never be GOP nominee”.

        Cruz can’t win the hearts and minds of voters. Can’t win delegates by getting citizens to vote for him. So he needs slimy crooked lawyer tactics and the help of his new GOP establishment and corporate globalist big donor masters.

        Cruz hasn’t even won as many states as did Santorum against Romney in 2012.

          How stupid are you? Colorado doesn’t have a vote because the state of Colorado won’t support it. They caucus because the parties have to pay for there primaries. Yes even the Democrats caucus and had about 110,000 voters compared to 65,000 Republicans. Think about that for a minute. Approximately 175,000 Coloradans decided how the state would vote in the primary out of about 3,500,000 voters. Appears to me that the voters that wanted to vote, voted. Oh and by the way 2012 had approximately the same turnout.

      Here’s a Colorado voter who disagrees that he was “disenfranchised”:
      http://proteinwisdom.com/?p=58377

      Volunteers at the Colorado Republican Assembly are coming forward with evidence to indicate that their state’s delegate selection process was riddled with errors that disadvantaged some Donald Trump supporters who were running to become national delegates.

      The errors could have violated state bylaws significantly enough that some of the results could be contested, according to the volunteers.

    Nobody attacked his family, you poor old daft LYING T-rump sucker.

    And at ANY TIME, Lady Killer Lewandowski could have simply apologized for letting his inner wannabe LEO out, instead of lying, smearing, and triggering his bosses pathological drive to crush anyone perceived as adversarial.

    Actions have consequences. Now, Cory has been “neutered” by the T=rumpians.

      Just saw this. It was disclosed on Hannity last night that on the evening of the run in with Fields when Lewandowski learned that Fields was having the vapors Corey tried calling Fields twice to try and speak to her about what he was sure was some kind of misunderstanding. Turns out Fields never called him back. Probably because she couldn’t actually speak to Lewandowski and go forward with her conspiracy to slander the Trump campaign.

      Lewandowski gave police/prosecutors his phone records which showed he made those calls.

    gmac124 in reply to VotingFemale. | April 15, 2016 at 12:26 pm

    You do realize that the only reason Fields had a knife to attack Lewandowski was because he stuck it in her back. If Lewandowski hadn’t went full Billy Clinton over this incident nothing would have ever come of this. So who is to blame for the damage to his family then? My vote goes to Lewandowski.

Interesting factoid:

Cruz has won fewer state primaries than Santorum against Romney.

Cruz is not a national candidate. He has very limited regional appeal and only in states that are reliably republican for any GOP candidate. He is not a factor in the battleground states.

    Evan3457 in reply to Gary Britt. | April 15, 2016 at 12:47 pm

    I didn’t know Idaho and Wisconsin were in the same region as Texas and Oklahoma. I didn’t know Wisconsin wasn’t a battleground state.

    Learn something new every day.

      Yes, Oklahoma and Texas are basically the same Region being contiguous states and all.

      Cruz has NO CHANCE to win any battleground state against Clinton. Wisconsin has gone democrat since 1992 I believe if not longer. The only republican who might make Wisconsin in play is Trump.

Should the Republican nomination be awarded to Cruz or John Kasich, it would be wildly out of step with the tradition of letting primary voters decide in practice who their candidate should be. Moreover, explaining this outcome would be enormously difficult to explain to the already dwindling number of voters willing to register Republican.

Trump’s argument, in this scenario, will be simple, clean, and easy to understand: I won the most delegates, the most votes, the most contests, and they stole the nomination from me.

The argument from the other side will be much more complicated and obtuse: You may not have known this, but the guy who wins the most of everything is ultimately at the mercy of a faceless mass of delegates, some of whom can be essentially bribed, and therefore giving the nomination to another candidate is fair game.Millions of Republicans will be told that their vote did not matter, and that the GOP, in its wisdom, has settled on a candidate that has been rejected by its electorate.

Rags,
What’s happened to you man ; you’re all spittle & venom now. You used to be amusing, somewhat subtle. Now you’re all anger.
I’m in & out with this blog. It used to be more urbane, somewhat high brow. But in the last few months since I’ve started checking back again I don’t know what to say about it anymore.
Most of the conservative blogs are in the toilet. There’s little original thinking anymore. Disagree with dogma, it’s the stocks for you.

Rags :
I’m concerned for you. You’re an interesting character. There aren’t too many of us around.
It would be a tragedy if you voted Republican, it’d show you’ve gone daft.
Next thing we know you’d be in the park feeding pigeons. Petting a cat that’s not there.
It’s dangerous to vote for Republican. It’s an early sign.

Clock Winds Down on Cruz Campaign: 10 Days Until Elimination

Ted Cruz is currently polling in third place in all these states except Pennsylvania.

As we noted on the 2nd, “Even if Cruz wins a third of the delegates in Rhode Island or Connecticut or any of these states, it will not be enough to keep him mathematically in the race.”

Now it looks like Cruz will not only be mathematically eliminated from obtaining enough delegates to win the election outright by April 26th, he may also have fallen to third place in the polls by the end of April, too.

The rest is here: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2016/04/cruz-elimination-april-26-worse-originally-predicted/

    Donald Trump is a monumental incompetent. There is no kinder way of putting it. His name, in business is associated with an excess of hype followed by abject failure and bankruptcy. He is the poster child for the small-handed rich kid, who, being born on third base, trips over his own shoelaces, does a faceplant, and then demands to be given credit for a home run because he really could have done it if things had gone the way he wanted.

    His campaign is in crisis. He has divided his campaign staff into warring tribes that spend more time fighting each other for butt-kissing festivals with Trump than they do trying to run a national primary campaign. He is at the point where he needs a run of amazing luck to win the nomination on the first ballot and he has proved singularly inept a wrangling delegates to achieve that goal.

    So Donald Trump does what he does best. He whines. He mewls. He snivels. He befouls himself and rubs it in his hair in rage. You really need to read this op-ed to appreciate what kind of a sniveling, cringing coward Donald Trump becomes in the face of adversity.

    T-rump…On Saturday, April 9, Colorado had an “election” without voters. Delegates were chosen on behalf of a presidential nominee, yet the people of Colorado were not able to cast their ballots to say which nominee they preferred.

    A planned vote had been canceled. And one million Republicans in Colorado were sidelined. End T-rump.

    This is a lie that would have made Goebbels blush. Colorado Republicans were afforded the opportunity to vote on a candidate. They just couldn’t do it in the way that Donald Trump prefers. Nominating the GOP candidate is something that GOP voters are supposed to do. Trump brings in what can only be called carpetbaggers, that is, Democrats and independents, to vote in what is supposed to be a GOP event. The only people denied the opportunity to vote for the GOP nominees where people who were not Republicans and Republicans who had so little interest in the process that they couldn’t be bothered to participate. In other words, the quintessential Trump voter. As my colleague, Sara Gonzalez, points out, these rules were established last year and were, or should have been, well known to any serious candidate. Which is why Donald Trump was blissfully unaware of them.

    And, of course, there’s the Prof’s own “Trump’s Big Lie In Colorado”.
