Fox News, DC Insiders, GOP candidates fuel Trump train heading for White House
Written by 

trump-engineWhen Donald Trump first burst on the political scene two months ago as a presidential candidate, the analysts, commentators and pollsters who populate cable news programs, the so called “experts,” claimed it was all a publicity stunt. Then, they said he would never release his financial statements. Then, they said his controversial comments about immigration, Senator John McCain and Fox News Host Megyn Kelly would doom his campaign. Now, they are saying his lead cannot continue for his support has a “ceiling” and his campaign is a flash in the pan. Unfortunately for the “experts,” they are completely wrong on every one of these issues. Trump is solidifying his lead and is not going away, even though the liberal media and the Republican establishment wishes that he would disappear. Trump is upsetting their plan for the GOP to nominate another moderate candidate, such as former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, and, once again, lose to the Democrats.


Fortunately, Trump is not following their losing script. He is used to winning in business and in the media and expects to win the presidential race. This confidence is infectious and is now one reason that the majority of Republicans now believe he will win the nomination.

A new Rasmussen poll shows that 57% of GOP voters believe he will be the next Republican presidential nominee. In the latest Fox News poll, Trump has a double digit lead (25-12%) over his nearest competitor, Jeb Bush. In a match-up versus Hillary Clinton, a Fox News poll has Trump gaining significant ground, only trailing 52-47%. The latest CNN national poll has Trump trailing Clinton by a 51-45% margin, closer than other Republican candidates such as businesswoman Carly Fiorina, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker or Bush.

These results actually show that Trump is the most electable at the current time. However, a succession of Fox News analysts such as columnist George Will, commentator Charles Krauthammer and consultant Karl Rove have criticized Trump as either a clown or someone who is too bombastic to be taken seriously.  They believe that his tactics and message are actually harmful to the Republican Party and that other candidates are more electable. Once again, it seems the so-called “experts” were wrong and, in fact, the real clowns are the commentators who have been on television too long and live in the Washington D.C. bubble.

They are also not objective for George Will’s wife works as a consultant for Governor Walker and Rove is obviously for Jeb Bush, the latest member of that family to run for President. Rove has a long history with the Bush family and served in the White House during the administration of George W. Bush.

These analysts are given coverage because Fox News and other media outlets are opposed to Trump and his message. In reality, they are trying to destroy Trump. For evidence, just look at the Fox News GOP presidential debate. Nonetheless, the liberal media continues to cover Trump because he is interesting. He is a colorful, combative candidate, while his major opponent Jeb Bush is boring and uninteresting.

As Trump noted, Bush is a “low energy” candidate while The Donald has plenty of energy, enthusiasm and passion for this country. His campaign slogan says it all, “Make America Great Again.” Unlike Hillary who avoids the media and runs from their questions, Trump is constantly doing media interviews. On Wednesday, he conducted a long news conference before holding a raucous and entertaining town hall meeting.

Today, his speech in Alabama may draw the largest crowd of the campaign. Without doubt, it will be bigger than anything that Bush or Clinton could attract. So, take note, media and GOP insiders, the Trump political freight train is heading down the track and may go all the way to the White House.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
