California Republicans React to GOP Debate

 My take and almost 99.5% of the polls conducted right after the Republican Debate last night in Las Vegas, the winner; Mr. Donald Trump! Please read below my dear and long time friend Jon Fleischman’s column. – Celeste

California Republicans React to GOP Debate

By Jon Fleischma

The last GOP debate before Super Tuesday is in the can. Co-hosted by CNN and Telemundo, it was viewed by 14.5 million people on Thursday evening. The debate crystallized that this is now essentially a three-person show: Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). And things really got hot, as the gloves came off.

It was painfully clear (to me, anyway) that Trump exposed himself as being all temperament and style, and not very much substance. But given the distrust and discontent of much of the GOP primary electorate I’ll be interested to see if Trump’s inability to get into specifics causes him more trouble than his decades of ideological inconsistency.

Here is a roundup of thoughts from various California politicos to whom Breitbart News reached out after the debate was over…

Arnold Steinberg, Republican Pollster and Strategist

Going in, Trump was advantaged: Vicente Fox, former president of Mexico attacked him, and Biden, in Mexico, apologized for Trump. Some of the attacks in the debate on Trump were potent, but will they work this late? The longer voter support for him consolidates, the harder to disabuse Trump voters. Carson was much improved, but CNN cheated him on time.  Kasich did fine and is the only one of this group that Trump, if he were the nominee, could consider as VP.  Rubio probably ruled himself out. Rubio and Cruz did well, Rubio probably better. If the repeated doubts about Trump raised by Rubio and Cruz did not work last night, they won’t work at all.

Sam Sorbo, Actress and Talk Show Host

The debaters have all improved their verbal-combat skills (thank heavens!), and how to handle the moderators (even better!).

  • Trump got testy: “First of all, very few people listen to your radio show.” (After which, Hugh Hewitt fumbled some of his next question.)
  • Rubio took control: “In less than five years, 83% of our entire budget will be made up of social security, medicare, medicaid and the interest on the debt … You cannot balance the budget unless you deal with that 83%.”
  • Cruz took Trump to the mat: “He can’t prosecute the case against Hillary and we can’t risk another four years of these failed Obama policies by nominating someone who loses to Hillary Clinton in November.”

Sadly, we learned (again) that Kasich’s dad was a mailman and Carson doesn’t get to answer too many questions.

Favorite quote (you figure out who): “I beat her, and I beat her badly.”

Diane Harkey, Vice Chairman of the State Board of Equalization

Rubio was a home run, Cruz was very effective and Trump was typical — he repeated himself with little substance.  However entertaining he may be, I think we saw a lack of depth on issues.

Celeste Greg, GOP Activist and Publisher, The Greig Report

I Watched the debate/dogfight with the two Junior senators, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio desperately and ferociously attacking the front-runner, businessman Donald Trump. Mr. Trump held his own. Certainly neither one of the senators can claim the title of Mr. Congeniality. Sen. Rubio, with his boyish look, was funny when he said that if Mr. Trump had not inherited his wealth (actually he borrowed money from his Dad) he would be selling watches in Manhattan. Probably so, but it would be his own label and most likely at Tiffany’s, I Magnin, or Cartier!

I don’t think Sen. Cruz scored any points last night — he was combative, unconvincing, repetitive, and closing the IRS is not going to happen. Dr. Carson once again proved he is a classy gentleman, his hands are magic and they have saved lives.  Gov. Kasich, perhaps the one of the five with the most knowledge and experience in government, was calm, and had very had good answers.

Overall, nothing new about their stances on immigration, ISIS, North Korea, Russia, Iran, IRS. vs. Apple. No losers, but Mr. Trump continued being himself–though more subdued– and stood his ground, stronger, giving him the advantage to go on as the frontrunner to win several states on Super Tuesday.

Shawn Steel, California’s Republican National Committeeman

Not only did Marco land a series of never ending punches, he enjoyed it. The Donald is bruised. It will feel the pain today.

Joel Pollak, Editor-In-Chief, Breitbart California

Cruz was the winner overall. He let Rubio attack Trump while reserving his time for principled answers. He needed to win on home turf and will now do well in Texas.

Rubio landed punches but failed to make a case for himself and was constantly interrupting. He needs to convince voters he is mature enough for the job, and his impatience signals the opposite.

Trump had his worst debate, though not catastrophic. But Trump is the long-term winner because Rubio’s supporters will think he did well by attacking, thereby keeping him in the race and continuing to split the anti-Trump vote with Cruz.

Bruce Bialosky, Founder of the Republican Jewish Coalition of California

Tonight, we finally had a winnowed field that showed that Trump was unprepared on policy issues to be president.  The only thing he could say about fixing Obamacare was the Republican doctrine of at least 15 years of a national health insurance market.  He lied about his taxes. The IRS can only go back three years on an audit, but Trump is supposedly being audited for 4-5 years. If he is being audited every year, there goes his mantra of hiring the best people. (He should call me and I would make sure he never gets audited again.) There is no reason he cannot release his tax returns because of these supposed audits. Kasich and Carson were window dressing.  Rubio decked Trump and won the debate. Trump lost the debate badly.

Tom Hudson, President of the California Republican Assembly

Donald Trump is as phony as Arnold Schwarzenegger!  His petulant name-calling and New York rudeness is already getting tiresome, but the primaries just started. Ben Carson had the best line of the debate: “Will someone please attack me?” Senator Ted Cruz, the CRA-endorsed candidate, stood out as the only candidate who looked presidential and really meant what he said.

Jason Roe, Republican Strategist

How do people take Trump seriously?  I mean, c’mon, this guy is so ahead of his skis, he doesn’t even know what he’s talking about. Rubio put him on his heels repeatedly and even when Trump struck back, Marco pounced on him. Was Carson there?

James Lacy, Publisher, California Political Review

Did tonight’s debate slow Trump’s march to the nomination? No, it didn’t. Though Cruz and Rubio surely landed some punches, Trump, again at ground zero center stage, and battling away, seemed to be able to come back cooly whenever he needed to.  He made good sense on his tax cut plan, spending, and the “Wall”.  His saying he will “not let people die on the streets” will be seen as offering some compassion, not socialism, by most voters. Kasich seemed to benefit from more time than usual in past debates, and Carson, sadly, is just increasingly irrelevant.

Hector Barajas, Republican Consultant and Analyst

Cruz debating Trump as if they’re on Senate floor = losing. Rubio’s street fighting = winning. Rubio comes out swinging from the start and Trump fantasizes that Hispanics love him.

Reed Galen, GOP Strategist

This debate was a sh*t show. Rubio did what he needed to do but not sure it’s enough to change the dynamic before Tuesday. Carson should take his fruit salad and go home.

 

Bill Clinton’s Loving Wife

Bill Clinton’s Loving Wife

By Dick Morris, former political advisor to President Bill Clinton
Bill-and-Hillary-Clinton-hugging-ap-640x480
If you happen to see the Bill Clinton five minute TV ad for Hillary in which he introduces the commercial by saying he wants to share some things we may not know about Hillary’s background, beware as I was there for most of their presidency and know them better than just about anyone. I offer a few corrections:

Bill says: “In law school Hillary worked on legal services for the poor.”
Facts are: Hillary’s main extra-curricular activity in ‘Law School’ was helping the Black Panthers, on trial in Connecticut for torturing and killing a ‘Federal Agent.’ She went to Court every day as part of a Law student monitoring committee trying to spot civil rights violations and develop grounds for appeal.

Bill says: “Hillary spent a year after graduation working on a Children’s rights project for poor kids.”
Facts are: Hillary interned with Bob Truehaft, the head of the California Communist Party. She met Bob when he represented the Panthers and traveled all the way to San Francisco to take an internship with him.

Bill says: “Hillary could have written her own job ticket, but she turned down all the lucrative job offers.”
Facts are: She flunked the D.C. bar exam, ‘Yes’, flunked it, it is a matter of record, and only passed the Arkansas bar. She had no job offers in Arkansas, ‘None’, and only got hired by the University of Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville because Bill was already teaching there. She did not join the prestigious Rose Law Firm until Bill
became Arkansas Attorney General and was made a partner only after he was elected Arkansas Governor.

Bill says: “President Carter appointed Hillary to the Legal Services Board of Directors and she became its Chairman.”
Facts are: The appointment was in exchange for Bill’s support for Carter in his 1980 primary against Ted Kennedy. Hillary then became chairman in a coup in which she won a majority away from Carter’s choice to be chairman.

Bill says: “She served on the board of the Arkansas Children’s Hospital.”
Facts are: Yes she did. But her main board activity, not mentioned by Bill, was to sit on the Wal-Mart Board of Directors, for a substantial fee. She was silent about their labor and health care practices.

Bill says: “Hillary didn’t succeed at getting health care for all Americans in 1994 but she kept working at it and helped to create the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that provides five million children with health insurance.”
Facts are: Hillary had nothing to do with creating CHIP. It was included in the budget deal between Clinton and Republican Majority Leader Senator Trent Lott. I know; I helped to negotiate the deal. The money came half from the budget deal and half from the Attorney Generals’ tobacco settlement. Hillary had nothing to do with either source of funds.

Bill says: “Hillary was the face of America all over the World.” (LOL)
Facts are: Her visits were part of a program to get her out of town so that Bill would not appear weak by feeding stories that Hillary was running the White House. Her visits abroad were entirely touristic and symbolic and there was no substantive diplomacy on any of them.

Bill says: “Hillary was an excellent Senator who kept fighting for Children’s and Women’s issues.”
Facts are: Other than totally meaningless legislation like changing the names on courthouses and post offices, she has passed only four substantive pieces of legislation. One set up a national park in Puerto Rico. A second provided respite care for family members helping their relatives through Alzheimer’s or other conditions. And two were routine bills to aid 911 victims and responders which were sponsored by the entire N.Y. delegation. Presently she is trying to
have the US memorialize Woodstock.

Here is what bothers me more than anything else about Hillary Clinton. She has done everything possible to weaken the President and our Country (that’s you and me) when it comes to the ‘War on Terror’.
1. She wants to close GITMO and move the combatants to the USA where they would have access to our legal system.
2. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of suspected Al Qaeda phone calls to/from the USA.
3. She wants to grant constitutional rights to enemy combatants captured on the battlefield.
4. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of money transfers between suspected Al Qaeda cells and supporters in the USA.
5. She wants to eliminate the type of interrogation tactics used by the Military & CIA where coercion might be used when questioning known terrorists even though such tactics might save American lives.

One cannot think of a single ‘Bill’, Hillary has introduced or a single comment she has made that would tend to strengthen our Country in the ‘War on Terror’. But, one can think of a lot of comments she has made that weaken our Country and makes it a more dangerous situation for all of us. Bottom line: She goes hand in hand with the ACLU on far too many issues where common sense is abandoned.

Share this with everyone you know, ask them to prove Dick Morris wrong. Think about it – he’s (Dick Morris) said all of this openly, thus if he were not truthful he’d be liable for ‘Defamation of Character’ !

And you better believe Hillary would sue him.

Her winning in 2016 means the final death knell for America! Her whole public life has been a LIE.

By Dick Morris, former political advisor to President Bill Clinton

Admiral Lyons on Iran – The video you were never supposed to see

Admiral Lyons speaks more truth in 3 minutes than we have heard from most politicians in years.

This is a must view.  Admiral Lyons has been at the forefront of our military decisions regarding Iran for many years.  Watch what he says at the end of his speech, Sec. of State John Kerry introduced  him to speak at a private meeting, he provably regrets doing so. It is such a stunning video that the country was never supposed to see.

The Problem With Public Housing

Scroll down and look at some pictures that I’m sure will not surprise you. Anyone treat a rental car, house, bicycle, or whatever else you rent like it’s your own? Due some respect and care for it’s condition. The only thing a guy like this respects and takes care of is……. 
THE GAZING POOL I’LL BET HE HAS IN THE WEST WING.              
(Wonder if he’s got one on Air Force One and in the Limousine)? 

The Problem With Public Housing

The problem with public housing is that the people who live in the house did not earn the money to buy it.

They just reside there at the expense of the taxpayers.
Because of this, the residents do not have “pride of ownership”.
They do not respect the property and do not care for it as they would if it were their own.
They neither appreciate the value of the property nor understand the need to maintain or respect it in any way.
Note the common theme of the following photographs.

The desk in the White House that Obama sees fit to put his feet on was built from timbers of the HMS Resolute and was a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes and is considered a national treasure and icon of the presidency.
The White House belongs to the people of America. Its treasures should NOT be used by ANYONE for a foot rest!
These photos are proof that this man has no class whatsoever and show an innate disrespect for our White House.
SO, HERE’S A MESSAGE FROM THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA:

Mr. Obama, you’re not in a hut in Kenya or Indonesia or in Chicago’s public housing. You’re in the White House. Property of the citizens of the United States.

Speaking for US , get your feet off of our Furniture!

YOU HAVE NO PRIDE NOR RESPECT

Five Things To Watch For While Watching Tomorrow’s GOP Debate

From Forbes.com

Five Things To Watch For While Watching The GOP Debate (Reagan Library Edition)

Bill Whalen

 

Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own.

January 2008: Republican presidential hopefuls debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)

Yogi Berra supposedly said: “It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.”

Then again, it was Will Rogers who observed: “You’ve got to go out on a limb sometimes, because that’s where the fruit is.”

Last month, I listed five things to be on the lookout for during the Republicans’ first debate in Cleveland.

Here are five things I’ll be looking for on Wednesday night, when the GOP field gathers at the Reagan Presidential Library for the second nationally televised candidates’ debate (two debates, actually, at 6pm and 9pm EDT).

1. Donaldus Magnus? National polls indicate it’s Donald Trump’s race. Do his actions make it his debate? Obviously, much of the build-up swirls around the question of what Trump will have to say about his rivals, what his rivals have to say about him, who throws the first punch, and so forth. My question: does Trump do anything in the course of the debate that moves the ball forward – i.e., words or ideas other than “make America great” to suggest that he’s more than a protest vote against political correctness and timid Republican leadership. Or does Trump, a very skilled golfer (self-taught, he’ll tell you), play it down the middle of the fairway and keep the message tailored to the angeristas?

2. Carly Or Carson’s Turn? Ben Carson’s surged to second in most polls; Carly Fiorina’s worked her way up to the prime-time debate. Along with Trump, they’re the GOP’s trinity of candidates whose record isn’t blemished by holding office. Trump and Carson have experienced a minor flap. Trump and Fiorina have differences much more personal (his comments about her looks bringing new meaning to the term “face-off”). I can give you a scenario in which Carson’s serenity further elevates his cause. I can also paint a scenario in which Fiorina’s poise and quick thinking play well against Trump. The guess here: it’s a good night for Fiorina. At only 3% in the latest CNN poll, she has more room growth than Carson. Whereas Carson struggled at time in the Cleveland debate (except for a great closing statement), Fiorina shined under the lights. Wednesday night could be more of the same.

3. “I Paid For This Microphone.” Can we get through a Republican debate without righteous indignation – real or feigned? Let’s flash back to January 2012 and another CNN-sponsored debate – this one, in South Carolina. During that debate, New Gingrich was asked about an interview with his ex-wife, during which she’d claimed the ex-Speaker wanted an open marriage. Gingrich’s response to CNN’s John King (here’s the video) not only won over the audience, but also lit a new fire under his candidacy. John King isn’t doing the asking this time, under the CNN banner. Instead, the honor goes to talk radio’s Hugh Hewitt. You won’t be surprised to know that Trump has issues with Hewitt’s interview style. The question: given how Trump has benefitted from picking fights with Fox News and other media outlets, does he go after Hewitt during the course of the debate, or leave the criticism for the spin room?

4. The Opening Debate – Any Signs Of Life? With former Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s campaign now in hibernation, only four candidates will compete in the 6pm debate – former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham and former New York Gov. George Pataki (former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore wasn’t invited to the party as he couldn’t crack 1% in CNN’s poll averaging – here’s CNN’s debate criteria). Call this ensemble what you like – kiddie table, singles table, isle of lost souls. My question: what can any of these gents do to garner the same notice and media bounce as Fiorina, the star of Cleveland’s prelim debate? My guess: brace yourself for a steady stream of Washington-bashing, some if not much of it directed at the GOP establishment. Here’s where the Reagan Library’s primetime debate could differ greatly from Cleveland’s. From Kim Davis’ imprisonment and the GOP Senate’s cautious handling of the Iran deal, to upcoming frays over Planned Parenthood funding and extending the debt ceiling, there’s plenty of room for debate – a Mack truck’s width – and a serious divide between the pragmatic and bomb-throwing wings of the GOP field (translation: Ted Cruz vs. John Kasich).

5. There They Go Again. No less than five candidates mentioned Ronald Reagan during the course of the Cleveland debate. The 17 men and women who belong to the Party of Lincoln mentioned Honest Abe but once. It’s impossible to ignore Reagan – as Rush Limbaugh calls him, “Ronaldus Magnus” – in his library/resting place. To honor Reagan is to be expected. To be over-reliant on his legacy comes with risks, as I explain in this Real Clear Politics piece. Just go back to the 2012 Census and do the math: nearly 102 million Americans were age-50 or older three years ago. Politically, they came of age in the Age of Reagan.

However, another 103 million Americans in 2012 fell between the ages of 20-45. They’re too young to have voted for Reagan, who was last on the ballot in 1984. Does it makes sense for a 2016 candidate to highlight the greatest hits of the 1980s – firing air-traffic controllers, staring down the Soviets? Put another way: in an age of iPods and DVR, why talk Walkman and Betamax? No Republican has filled the void in the post-Reagan GOP, which is one reason why this race is so chaotic. My advice t Wednesday’s slate of 15 debaters: mimics of the 40th President usually end up as pale imitations of Ronald Reagan. Avoid that temptation – focus on who you are, and what you believe the GOP should be.

What the GOP field is saying about Rick Perry

From CNN.com

Rick Perry drops out of presidential race

Washington (CNN)Rick Perry, the former Texas governor who insisted he learned lessons from his disastrous 2012 presidential campaign, dropped his second bid for the White House on Friday after just 100 days.

“Today, I am suspending my campaign for the presidency of the United States,” Perry said in an address in St. Louis that virtually mirrored his standard stump speech until the very end. “Life is good. I am a blessed man.”

The departure of Perry, who had little support in early-voting states or among the GOP donor class, is unlikely to alter the contours of the Republican race. But Perry nevertheless implored his supporters in an email to back a candidate who embodies the principles of conservatism.

“The conservative movement has always been about principles, not personalities,” Perry said, before making a not-too-veiled swipe at Donald Trump, the GOP’s current front-runner. “Our nominee should embody those principles. He — or she — must make the case for the cause of conservatism more than the cause of their own celebrity.”

For almost two years, the swaggering Texan had prepared and studied for a second shot at the presidency. But in a 17-candidate field, Perry found himself weakened by fundraisers who ditched him for his rivals and by top surrogates who defected as his campaign crumbled. He raised only about $1 million in the first fundraising quarter, and he never had enough supporters for him to earn a spot in the premier GOP debates. Back in Texas, he remained under indictment on an abuse-of-power charge.

And as it became increasingly clear that the campaign wouldn’t be able to overcome deep financial problems that left him without enough money to win a competitive race, he became the first GOP candidate to leave it.

Still, Perry’s exit still comes surprisingly early. He was scheduled to appear next week at CNN’s Republican debate, which his allies hoped would be a turning point for his troubled campaign. His super PAC sat on more than $17 million that it was investing in Iowa to fill the void created by his Austin-based campaign as its financial difficulties mounted. And Perry acted very much the candidate all day on Friday, authoring an opinion piece about terrorism in National Review in the morning and sharing his vision for his presidency for a half hour in his St. Louis speech in the afternoon.

Some of his top supporters expressed shock that Perry bowed out so early. David Johnson, an Iowa state senator and the candidate’s top backer in the Hawkeye State, said Perry may have prematurely pulled the plug.

“Perhaps Governor Perry sees something that I don’t,” Johnson said, explaining that he heard about Perry’s decision from the other Texan in the race — Ted Cruz. “I was certainly ready to go.”

Perry was unable to reassemble the Texas political and financial base that made him, at one point, the party’s front-runner in the last presidential cycle. In the 2012 race, his campaign was dogged by questions about his readiness, punctuated by an embarrassing moment in a debate when he couldn’t name the third agency he planned to eliminate as president.

And just as in his first campaign, the man who was once governor of the largest Republican state for 14 years, leaves the campaign trail disappointed and also politically damaged.

Deep financial problems

The second campaign began to unravel this summer, with the operation essentially abandoning its efforts in Iowa and New Hampshire. Doug Deason, the son of a $5 million donor to the Perry super PAC, said Perry’s campaign had only raised $100,000 in the two months since the last reporting period. Deason said Perry delivered the news of the suspension to him on Thursday.

“He felt it coming. He knew there’s only so much the super PAC can do,” explained Deason, a powerful Texas donor who is part of the Koch Brothers’ political network. “After the word got out they were struggling, they did start getting donations in — but it just wasn’t enough to really make a difference.”

Deason expects to get his millions of dollars returned next week.

“The beauty, of course, of investing in a super PAC is you get the money back that doesn’t get spent,” Deason said.

But Austin Barbour, the group’s top operative, said it was not immediately clear if the law allowed the donations to be refunded.

Nevertheless, other campaigns Friday evening were moving rapidly to poach top financial and political backers of Perry. Deason dined with Cruz a few evenings ago. Even while Friday’s speech was going on, Deason was contacted by Cruz finance director Willie Langston and lieutenants from the Jeb Bush and Scott Walker campaigns. Johnson said in the hours after Perry’s decision, he heard from aides representing Walker, Cruz and Rick Santorum.

“Would you consider another Texan for president?” asked Bryan English, Cruz’s Iowa state director, according to Johnson.

The departure of Perry speaks in part to the limitations of super PACs, which had been expected to save the cash-strapped campaign. Perry’s well-funded group, Opportunity and Freedom PAC, depended heavily on a small group of Texas families, and the organization had indicated it was willing to hire field operatives and launch an aggressive advertising campaign.

“In It For The Long Haul: Opportunity and Freedom PAC Is Back On The Air In Iowa,” the group announced at 9 a.m. on Friday.

“We all felt like we had really turned a corner in the past few days,” said a disappointed Barbour, whose super PAC had knocked on 10,000 doors in Iowa so far. “We wanted to fight. We felt like there was path, but again, it’s not up to us.”

Earlier this week, Perry shuttered his South Carolina campaign headquarters in the capital city of Columbia. And field staffers in Iowa and New Hampshire went without pay this month as the campaign tried to salvage its operation. About a month ago, Perry’s campaign announced that it would no longer be paying staff across the country.

Some Perry staffers had remained loyal to the campaign, and his super PAC was expected to play a growing, if not unprecedented, role in resuscitating the official campaign. Perry’s support barely registered in polls, but his departure will likely create an intense fight for the dollars that have flooded his big-money group, which must spend the money independently.

It is unclear which candidate, or candidates, will inherit the support of Perry’s backers. In the past, Perry has repeatedly gone out of his way to lavish praise on another candidate with Texas roots: businesswoman Carly Fiorina.

2016 candidates salute Perry

Soon after Perry announced the end of his bid, a flood of warm wishes came from his now-former GOP presidential rivals on Twitter — perhaps in an effort to court his support, or that of his backers.

“.@GovernorPerry is a terrific guy and I wish him well- I know he will have a great future!” tweeted Trump, who has made antagonizing his GOP rivals, including Perry, a hallmark of his campaign.

Cruz said he donated to The Lone Survivor Foundation and the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation, two of Perry’s favorite charities, and praised his one-time boss.

“The entire GOP field was unquestionably made stronger by the experience & wisdom @GovernorPerry brought to the race,” he tweeted.

“.@GovernorPerry has dedicated his entire life to his family, friends, and Jesus Christ,” Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said.

Bush praised Perry for his commitment to conservatism.

“Amen. God bless Rick Perry for his continuing commitment to that cause,” Bush said.

“@GovernorPerry getting to know you and Anita has been a great joy for our family. Thank you for your service friend,” Santorum tweeted.

Other candidates, like Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who have feuded with Trump, used Perry’s departure to mock the GOP front-runner.

“.@realDonaldTrump Attacked him one day. Praised him today. Sounding like a typical politician. Rick is a better man than you’ll ever be,” Jindal tweeted.

“What does it say about GOP when a 3 & half term Gov w/ a successful record of creating jobs bows out as a reality star leads in the polls?” Paul asked.

Trump Like You’ve Never Seen Him

Ok, no one can claim he is not consistence on where he stands……….

One World Trade Center

The video is a little bit long, but very … very.. interesting, and worth the time to see this building is fascinating, especially to be able to see the beauty that can arise from so such devastation caused by evil, fanatic, hateful men. Those of us who were able to see the site of destruction during the National Republican Convention in New York City a few years later, were in tears and anger for such a brutal act of hatred, and the murdered of over 3400 innocent people. And now the people can see something beautiful that came out of that horrible day.

Please enjoy it.

NEW YORK | Nearly 14 years after the collapse of the twin towers, the new One World Trade Center tower finally open to the public on 29 May. The opening of the observation platform at the top of One World Trade Center is undoubtedly the most anticipated event this spring in New York. The tower 1776 feet high (in homage to the year of American independence) is the highest in the Western Hemisphere.
The platform is built on three floors (100th, 101st and 102nd). The view is 381 meters high, unsurprisingly, breathtaking. For reference, the observation platform of the Empire State Building is located at 373 meters and the Rockefeller Center is 259 meters.
102 floors in 60 seconds. The multimedia experience starts on the ground floor. After passing the security check, visitors will line in a tunnel, where the foundations of the tower will be exhibited. Another corridor presents multimedia portraits of men and women who have worked in rebuilding the tower.

Five lifts (Sky pods) transport visitors from 1st to 102nd floor in 60 seconds. They are among the fastest in the world. The walls of the lifts are LED screens that project images of the New York skyline from the 1600s to the present, as if it was outside the ascent in a glass cube. At the 102nd floor, we find the theater “See Forever,” which presents a film about the reconstruction of the site and the 101st floor, there are three restaurants. At 100th floor, it has a 360 degree panorama of the city. We see the George Washington Bridge up there and all Brooklyn. One unfortunately can not go outside like the “Top of the World” old twin towers.

Tickets ($ 32 for adults and $ 26 for children) Access to the observatory will be free for the families of the victims and rescuers. It is estimated that the observatory will generate revenues of $875 million over 15 years
