God Fox News has never been able to replace Brit Hume, their election night coverage is suffering, Howdy Doody aka Chris Wallace is such a nothing that he needs to be put out to pasture and Megyn Kelly is just not adept at covering substantive news events, it is as if Fox News believes if they just put her on 24/7 their viewers will think of her as the female Cronkite but she comes off as trite/banal/lacking substance/ and possesses a seemingly endless array of junior high school style quips, in other words the viewer becomes sick of Megyn Kelley after about one hour of coverage.
The most heartfelt and interesting speech of the night was delivered by John Kasich but because Roger Ailes latest crush is on Marco Rubio, Fox News cut away from Kasich to show the 5th place finisher of the night, Marco “Deer In the Headlights” Rubio.
Al “Paper A-Hole” Hunt is not the only elite media dinosaur to appear on The Charlie Rose Show, up next on War69.com you will read about Dinosaur Joe Klein, you remember Old Klein, the Newsweek hack, well he called all of the Trump voters “low information” i.e. stupid and racist and self indulgent in their anger because things in America are not that bad. Hmm, one wonders how bad Joe Klein described America’s economic condition during the Bush years.
And Joe Klein also called the Trump New Hampshire Voters, “the greatest threat to America and to the world”.
Is Mr. Krauthammer going to meld into a Rovian BS artist phase of his career, is he seriously trying to convince us that the entire media covered Donald Trump 24/7 because they thought he would be the inevitable candidate? That is rich considering that 99 percent of the analysts were proclaiming each and every week that the Trump bubble would burst, that do you remember Rudy and Mr. Herman Cain were leading at this point in the race, yada, yada, yada, yee.
The media is going to continue to cover Trump in the same fashion as long as he is in the race because the media wants one thing and one thing only, ratings.
Whether you are for or against Trump his numbers held up pretty well considering the Iowa caucus rarely matters even though the Fox News/MSNBC crowd covered it as if it was The Super Bowl.
Wake up Bill O’Reilly, if Donald Trump was a Democrat you would have yelled at him with all of your pseudo bully furor, how about confronting his BS instead of feting him on a nightly basis, how about this BS, in June 2008, Trump said the economy was going to get better and yet he told Mike and Joe he was warning President Bush for two years that the financial collapse was inevitable:
Donald Trump, “Sure, the economy is bad and I definitely believe we’re in a recession, but I’m convinced we shouldn’t really start panicking.
That’s why I was a little surprised to read a recent column in the Wall Street Journal by Brett Arends. He suggested that maybe it’s time for Americans to start stockpiling food. His reason is that food prices are rising much faster than the returns you are likely to get by keeping your money in a bank or money-market fund.
He said that if you keep standby cash in a money-market fund, you’ll be lucky to get a 2.5 percent interest rate. Even a really good one-year CD is only going to pay you around 4.1 percent…and those are before tax. By comparison, food inflation is now running at 4.5 percent a year.
So he suggests filling up your pantry and stockpiling food as an investment.
That’s one idea but I still think there are much better places to put your money than in boxes of cereal and cans of tuna fish. The economy’s going to get better and, when it does, you don’t want all your money invested in your pantry.”
Donald J. Trump, “You’re probably wondering what I’m talking about when you see that headline. But I’m talking about what’s happening today, now, in the U.S. I say that times are good because there are still plenty of opportunities out there. In fact I’m a little tired of the negative cloud we seem to be under these days.
Difficult doesn’t necessarily mean negative. Challenging doesn’t have to be negative either. There are ups and downs in every aspect of life and business, and as someone who has survived some major financial upheavals and losses, I think I have some insights to share with you about this.
First of all, things usually manage to even themselves out. Real estate is known for having ‘bubbles’, good markets, bad markets, ups, downs, you name it. But many people, including myself, have endured these cycles and still managed to make a lot of money.
What’s the key? Looking for the upside. Looking for the opportunities that are out there no matter what’s going on.
It’s a fact that when I first entered the real estate business in New York City, the market was terrible. Everyone told me it was the wrong time to get started. Know what? I wanted to go into real estate then and so I did, and look what’s happened. But if I’d listened to those people back in the 1970’s when times were ‘terrible’ I wouldn’t be where I am today. One of my detractors back then, a big New York real estate guy, actually told a friend of mine that “Trump has a great line of s–t, but where are the bricks and mortar?” My answer today is that I am now much bigger in real estate than the other guy. To me, it was a time of great opportunity.
So that’s why I’m saying that times are good. Look at it that way and I’ll bet you’ll find a way to not only survive, but to make a difference.”
Donald Trump, “We hear terrible things about outsourcing jobs–how sending work outside of our companies is contributing to the demise of American businesses. But in this instance I have to take the unpopular stance that it is not always a terrible thing.
I understand that outsourcing means that employees lose jobs. Because work is often outsourced to other countries, it means Americans lose jobs. In other cases, nonunion employees get the work. Losing jobs is never a good thing, but we have to look at the bigger picture.
Last year, Nobel Prize-winning economist Dr. Lawrence R. Klein, the founder of Wharton Econometric Forecasting Associates, co-authored a study that showed how global outsourcing actually creates more jobs and increases wages, at least for IT workers. The study found that outsourcing helped companies be more competitive and more productive. That means they make more money, which means they funnel more into the economy, thereby, creating more jobs.
I know that doesn’t make it any easier for people whose jobs have been outsourced overseas, but if a company’s only means of survival is by farming jobs outside its walls, then sometimes it’s a necessary step. The other option might be to close its doors for good.”
Donald Trump, “It was a bubble that was waiting to explode, it was a bubble that Joe and Mika I told them it was waiting to explode, I told a lot of people and I was right, ya know I’m pretty good at that stuff, but what they (Bush) were doing was a death wish and I saw that, it was a Republican thing.”
Trump, “With housing prices continuing to rise into the far reaches of the stratosphere, there’s a lot of talk about a housing bubble on the brink of bursting. Scared at the possibility, industry watchers have been preaching impending doom, warning house shoppers to be wary of the real estate market.
As long as interest rates stay low and the dollar stays weak–which is an unfortunate situation, but it happens to be good for real estate–then there will be no burst in the current housing bubble. If interest rates go up precipitously and the dollar gets stronger, then there will be some reduction in housing prices.
How you react to the so-called housing bubble can be a barometer of your business personality. Are you the type of person who takes advantage of positive situations when they present themselves, riding them out as long as they last? Or do you heed every message of doom and gloom, avoiding risks that could be some remarkable opportunities?”

He declared this in a blog post from his now defunct Trump University, you remember that place, it was the place that Trump sold snake oil entreprenurial dreams to any sucker with a few thousand dollars to shovel his way per class.
At times War69.com likes Donald Trump as an F/U to the entire system that has lined the pockets of the DC elite and corporate lobbyists especially in the last 25 years while the per capita income of every American has languished since 2001, however if you don’t call out the con man parts of Trump’s personality then you are just as misguided as the 2008 Obama supporter who bought the lie that he was some kind of revolutionary & bipartisan candidate.
Memo to Jeb Bush and anyone that wants to dethrone Donald Trump, you need new blood running the Super-Pacs and your campaign. Who in the hell greenlit this weather vane attack ad on Marco Rubio as the exact same ad was used by Hubert Humphrey in a 1968 attack ad against Richard Nixon, are you really so lost on new ideas that you need to mine the 1968 Presidential campaign?
Maybe the old psychological cliche of a criminal secretly wanting to get caught is true or maybe Ms. Hillary Clinton is really so arrogant as to tempt the Political Gods by harkening back to the master of Dirty Tricks Richard M. Nixon when she said that no one was too big to jail:
CLINTON: There’s no daylight on the basic premise that there should be no bank too big to fail, and no individual too powerful to jail.
Vice Pres. NIXON: [1968 campaign] This is a nation of laws and as Abraham Lincoln has said, “No one is above the law, no one is below the law,” and we’re going to enforce the law and Americans should remember that if we’re going to have law and order.
We all know what happened to President Richard Nixon, will Hillary Clinton suffer a similar fate?
And for the video of Richard Nixon’s statement go to minute 4:44 in the video below from the movie, “Above The Law” starring Steven Seagal”
Remember that Richard Nixon’s presidency was not the total disaster painted by your high school history teacher however dirty tricks did plague his administration but the Watergate third rate burglary is candy when compared to the payola and corruption that is rife in The Clinton Foundation slush fund.
