    Here’s a few for Trump: Carl Icahn, Steve Wynn, Elie Hirschfeld, Robert Kraft, Russell Weiner, Charles Kushner, Tom Barrack, Phil Ruffin.
     
    "Supporting' in this context means "giving money to". How many million dollars have Icahn, Wynn, etc donated to Trump?

    What's that you say? Zero? Then they are not supporting him.

    I’m glad to see at least one person carefully reads posts.

    I know that Norman Braman, the billionaire auto dealer from south Florida, has bankrolled Marco Rubio for many years and has even had his wife on his payroll and that other Jewish billionaires have come to Rubio's support. Can you name any Jewish billionaires who have taken a similar position with respect to Trump? Why are the neoconservatives like Max Boot, who are overwhelmingly Jewish so totally opposed to Trump and supporting Rubio (a man of limited intellectual abilities based on his record)?

    Jewish billionaires Carl Icahn, Mark Cuban, and Steve Wynn endorse Donald Trump for president.

    Trump's whole campaign, his sole claim to competence, is his business acumen. He needs to man up and prove that by releasing all his taxes. No more excuses.

    I didn't realize the problem with Trump at first but once you realize it, it's over. There is no Trump campaign. It's all a big lie.

    From your writing, I can tell you're smart guy. Don't let him make a fool of you like everyone else.

    No his whole campaign is based on him promising to do something that Washington has refused to do for 30 years and people believing he will keep his word. Many people with personal dealings with Trump say he keeps his word.

  • Trump’s tax returns are a red herring. He’s running for an office that has been made into the most corrupt con in history. On retirement, the president starts accepting “speaking engagements”, “consultancy roles”, “directorships”, etc. and the mass of bribes that have been accumulating over the course of his incumbency start rolling in on him like water from a burst dam.

    There are lots of problems with Trump that I'm willing to overlook. I'm *not* willing to give him a pass on his taxes problem. You'd never buy a car without a full inspection and documentation of any crashes. I don't understand why smart people are buying a president without checking out the one thing he's supposedly great at: his business record.

    I'm as hurt as anyone about what's happened to our country. But Trump has to be honest with us if he wants us to trust him at all. This audit excuse he uses is bullshit and everyone knows it. He knew this was going to come up and he figured he'd bluff his way through. Don't let him make you a sucker.

    You mean don’t let you make us a sucker.

    This kind of foolish talk doesn’t work on non cucks. The gope really doesn’t understand their base. I want to see them destroyed

    I think we need to disabuse ourselves of the notion that a vote for Trump is a pure protest vote; to the contrary, it is a vote for Trump to represent one of the two major parties in a Presidential election and all that it entails. That means that if Trump is the nominee and he amends his restrictionist immigration position, we're back to Coke v. Pepsi. It also means that if Trump is the nominee and he runs out of his magical teflon qualities and succumbs to the slings and arrows of the Media and is made to be perceived as unelectable he could lose horribly and take with him the Congressional majorities (which have been the only bulwark against de jure open borders and eventual citizenship for illegals), the Senate (and with it, a likely 30 years of outrageous antidemocratic judicial mischief to come), and state legislative and gubernatorial candidates. A total wipeout will hand to Hillary a mandate for a hard-left legislative agenda (including immigration "reform") with no means to check it. The Left will seize any such opportunity before the next midterms to jam through its most unpopular agenda items, and keep in mind that Hillary is much more industrious and determined a foe than the low-energy Mr. Obama ever was.

    So, be clear that a vote for Trump is a vote for Trump, including everything known, unknown, foreseeable and unforeseeable that it entails. There won't be a "do-over" or "take backs" once the Rubicon is crossed.

    Trump is the only hope for this country. If he is not the next President it will be time to accept the end of the nation

    I agree with Trump *a lot.* But until he releases his tax returns and proves he's an amazing businessman, I can't vote for him. Otherwise, he's just all talk and we're being suckers.

    I’m *not* willing to give him a pass on his taxes problem.

    What taxes problem? If the IRS charges him with a tax-related crime, then this becomes public knowledge. If there is no charge, then there is no criminal wrong-doing.

    He's complied with the financial disclosure laws, those laws don't mandate the release of tax returns. There is no basis to suggest that he's done something illegal.

    The complicating factor arising from his wealth is not the tax issue but the requirement that his wealth be put into a blind trust. He's stated that his fortune will be for his kids to run, but no one has analyzed whether this qualifies. It is this issue where things might get really sticky if he is intent on letting his kids run the Trump Organization and interpretations of federal law require that blind trustees be put in place.

    Trump’s whole campaign, his sole claim to competence, is his business acumen. He needs to man up and prove that by releasing all his taxes. No more excuses.

    I didn’t realize the problem with Trump at first but once you realize it, it’s over. There is no Trump campaign. It’s all a big lie.

    No his whole campaign is based on him promising to do something that Washington has refused to do for 30 years and people believing he will keep his word. Many people with personal dealings with Trump say he keeps his word.

    There are lots of problems with Trump that I'm willing to overlook. I'm *not* willing to give him a pass on his taxes problem. You'd never buy a car without a full inspection and documentation of any crashes. I don't understand why smart people are buying a president without checking out the one thing he's supposedly great at: his business record.

    I'm as hurt as anyone about what's happened to our country. But Trump has to be honest with us if he wants us to trust him at all. This audit excuse he uses is bullshit and everyone knows it. He knew this was going to come up and he figured he'd bluff his way through. Don't let him make you a sucker.

    I’m *not* willing to give him a pass on his taxes problem.

    What taxes problem? If the IRS charges him with a tax-related crime, then this becomes public knowledge. If there is no charge, then there is no criminal wrong-doing.

    He’s complied with the financial disclosure laws, those laws don’t mandate the release of tax returns. There is no basis to suggest that he’s done something illegal.

    The complicating factor arising from his wealth is not the tax issue but the requirement that his wealth be put into a blind trust. He’s stated that his fortune will be for his kids to run, but no one has analyzed whether this qualifies. It is this issue where things might get really sticky if he is intent on letting his kids run the Trump Organization and interpretations of federal law require that blind trustees be put in place.

    Trump's whole campaign, his sole claim to competence, is his business acumen. He needs to man up and prove that by releasing all his taxes. No more excuses.

    None of the other candidates have released their tax returns yet. And there will be nothing in Trump's tax returns to confirm or refute his standing as a successful businessman.

    I know that Norman Braman, the billionaire auto dealer from south Florida, has bankrolled Marco Rubio for many years and has even had his wife on his payroll and that other Jewish billionaires have come to Rubio’s support. Can you name any Jewish billionaires who have taken a similar position with respect to Trump? Why are the neoconservatives like Max Boot, who are overwhelmingly Jewish so totally opposed to Trump and supporting Rubio (a man of limited intellectual abilities based on his record)?
     
    Rubio went to a decent law school and graduated. Get over the HBD bullshit obsessed about by beta males. It's a lot harder for a good-looking hetero guy with a ripped body and well-endowed to do well in school than it is for an ugly guy with an unmasculine body (e.g., Ted Cruz). The former has too many opportunities and distractions from females, and even male friends to go out to parties.

    I challenge you to come up with as many Jewish billionaires supporting Rubio or Cruz as I can supporting Trump. Here's a few for Trump: Carl Icahn, Steve Wynn, Elie Hirschfeld, Robert Kraft, Russell Weiner, Charles Kushner, Tom Barrack, Phil Ruffin.

    Here’s a few for Trump: Carl Icahn, Steve Wynn, Elie Hirschfeld, Robert Kraft, Russell Weiner, Charles Kushner, Tom Barrack, Phil Ruffin.

    “Supporting’ in this context means “giving money to”. How many million dollars have Icahn, Wynn, etc donated to Trump?

With regard to the Pauls, I said a few months back that Rand Paul might have the better message when it comes to needless foreign wars, but Trump is clearly the better messenger.

If anybody had any doubts about Trump's bona fides when it comes to foreign policy, his attack on GWB and Jeb!!! and the Iraq War at the SC debate should have removed those doubts.

    BTW two of the first things Trump should do if he is elected President is (1) have the Defense Department release the records pertaining to McCain's Vietnam captivity and (2) give the boot to the neocons from the Republican Party using their disloyalty (by openly supporting Hillary) as justification. The latter would go far toward restoring Republican foreign policy to its traditional realism and getting our policy back in the hands of hard-headed administrators. With regard to the McCain situation, it was Trump's attack on McCain's phony "hero status" last summer which first got my attention. McCain is up for reelection this year, and we should hope he gets reelected. Once he is exposed as a traitor (as he openly admitted in the 1973 U.S. News interview, which directly contradicts McCain's Silver Star citation), he may be forced to resign his Senate seat. That would allow Gov. Jan Brewer, a Trump supporter, to appoint herself as his successor. Arizona authorizes the governor to make an appointment in the event of a vacancy until the next regularly-scheduled general election. That way Trump is assured of a friendly Senator on his legislative program (possibly involving immigration) for at least two years.

And Romney will be relegated to the trash heap where he belongs.

    I think we need to disabuse ourselves of the notion that a vote for Trump is a pure protest vote; to the contrary, it is a vote for Trump to represent one of the two major parties in a Presidential election and all that it entails. That means that if Trump is the nominee and he amends his restrictionist immigration position, we’re back to Coke v. Pepsi. It also means that if Trump is the nominee and he runs out of his magical teflon qualities and succumbs to the slings and arrows of the Media and is made to be perceived as unelectable he could lose horribly and take with him the Congressional majorities (which have been the only bulwark against de jure open borders and eventual citizenship for illegals), the Senate (and with it, a likely 30 years of outrageous antidemocratic judicial mischief to come), and state legislative and gubernatorial candidates. A total wipeout will hand to Hillary a mandate for a hard-left legislative agenda (including immigration “reform”) with no means to check it. The Left will seize any such opportunity before the next midterms to jam through its most unpopular agenda items, and keep in mind that Hillary is much more industrious and determined a foe than the low-energy Mr. Obama ever was.

    Slightly OT - Apparently there is another GOP debate on Thursday. Why? Are we just going to keep having tag team debates until Trump totally implodes? After two consecutive debates in which the optics were not good for Trump, is he actually going to prepare for this one? Why would Trump and his handlers allow him to keep attending these without changing his approach?

    There was a lot of speculation that Trump hurt himself as a result of cancelling out of the Fox-sponsored debate prior to the Iowa caucuses. I never thought so. This last debate on Fox shows what he might have missed had he not skipped out of that pre-Iowa debate: Fox and the other candidates ganging up and attacking him nonstop in a determined effort to bring him down. It is pure speculation to say whether Trump’s missing that earlier debate hurt him or helped him. I’m inclined to think that it may have helped him in Iowa since it allowed him to escape damage inflicted by Fox and friends.

    With the GOP's corrupt delegate allocation, Rubio is getting 1 delegate per 1,100 votes in PR (25,000 votes got him 23 delegates).

    Trump got 501,000 votes in Georgia and was awarded 40 delegates, one per 12,000 votes.

    Trump got 757,000 votes in Texas and was awarded 47 delegates, one per 16,000 votes.

    So GOP primary voters in the South, don't forget the RNC values the votes of Puerto Ricans 12 to 16 times more than your vote.

    But isn’t this because of the smaller margins for victory in the other states and high voter turnout in those states relative to PR?

    Rubio won about 75% of the vote in PR, and no other candidate won enough of the vote to be allocated any of its delegates. Therefore, even though it was not a “winner take all” primary, Rubio “took all” due to his margin of victory over the other candidates.

    In contrast the other states: 1) had high voter turnout (which increases vote total but not delegates in play); and, 2) the margins of victory between win, place and show were much narrower. Therefore the winner of the state took only slightly more delegates than the second place candidate, and if the third place candidate placed above the floor to win delegates (usually 20%), splitting the delegate allocation among at least three candidates.

    This seems to mirror the electoral college, which is a wise and ingenious check on direct democracy and an acknowledgement that the several states create the Union rather than the other way around.

Can you name any Jewish billionaires who have taken a similar position with respect to Trump? Why are the neoconservatives like Max Boot, who are overwhelmingly Jewish so totally opposed to Trump and supporting Rubio (a man of limited intellectual abilities based on his record)?

    Trump is the only candidate that treats Russia with respect, instead of terming it the Fourth Reich. He’s the first Republican candidate to seriously question the Bush wars, in retrospect Ron Paul was nothing but a gadfly.

    His potential administration would hire few if any residents of the neocon Beltway think tanks.

    He is an existential threat to the very legitimacy of the regressed to the mean third generation descendants of Kristol and Podhoretz.

    No Moynihans either today.

    I totally agree. I have been saying essentially the same thing for a number of months now, while most posters here have been focusing exclusively on Trump's immigration policy. I think the latter is extremely important too, but I recognize there are other issues a President has to confront, such as foreign policy. With regard to the Pauls, I said a few months back that Rand Paul might have the better message when it comes to needless foreign wars, but Trump is clearly the better messenger. That's why Paul did poorly in the primaries and dropped out and Trump is on his way to the nomination. If anybody had any doubts about Trump's bona fides when it comes to foreign policy, his attack on GWB and Jeb!!! and the Iraq War at the SC debate should have removed those doubts.

    BTW two of the first things Trump should do if he is elected President is (1) have the Defense Department release the records pertaining to McCain's Vietnam captivity and (2) give the boot to the neocons from the Republican Party using their disloyalty (by openly supporting Hillary) as justification. The latter would go far toward restoring Republican foreign policy to its traditional realism and getting our policy back in the hands of hard-headed administrators. With regard to the McCain situation, it was Trump's attack on McCain's phony "hero status" last summer which first got my attention. McCain is up for reelection this year, and we should hope he gets reelected. Once he is exposed as a traitor (as he openly admitted in the 1973 U.S. News interview, which directly contradicts McCain's Silver Star citation), he may be forced to resign his Senate seat. That would allow Gov. Jan Brewer, a Trump supporter, to appoint herself as his successor. Arizona authorizes the governor to make an appointment in the event of a vacancy until the next regularly-scheduled general election. That way Trump is assured of a friendly Senator on his legislative program (possibly involving immigration) for at least two years. Such a maneuver would also work as a bank shot and completely undercut Mitt Romney, who has improperly acted as a point man to derail Donald Trump. One of things Romney cited was Trump's "unjustified attack" on McCain's "hero status." I don't know if you noticed, but little John McCain used the cover of Romney's attack to get in a sucker punch at Trump, which is kind of ironic considering all the scorn McCain (and his little buddy and traveling companion Lindsey Graham) heaped on Romney when he was a candidate. Even if McCain does not resign in disgrace, he will be considerably diminished as a possible critic of Trump's nonbelligerent foreign policy. And Romney will be relegated to the trash heap where he belongs.

    I totally agree with you. Regardless of which candidate you favor, you have to admit that the current system makes absolutely no sense when it comes to allocation of delegates. Leaving the non-voting territories out of the discussion, you only have to look at my old home town, Washington, D.C., which acquired the right to vote for President in 1964 and has never voted less than 80% Democratic, as far as I know. In 1984, when Reagan achieved his landslide reelection, he got less than 14% of the vote in D.C. Despite that record, D.C. still gets 19 delegates to the Republican Convention. That is absurd, in my opinion.

    In its wisdom, Congress passed a law in 1917 making Puerto Ricans citizens of the U.S. just as we entered WWI, thus making PR citizens subject to military conscription. About 20,000 Puerto Ricans served in the U.S. military in WWI. Ironic that we subsequently dropped the draft but U.S. citizenship still remains for PR citizens.

There are two distinct groups coming here: Those fleeing the NYC area (presumably because the weather doesn’t suck as 18 out of every 12 months down here), and those fleeing PR (because it is a complete basket case). It’s easy to tell the two groups apart, as the first group all sound like New Yorkers, and the second group struggle with the English language.

    Marco Rubio had a commanding lead with about 30 percent of precincts reporting, taking 74 percent of the vote. Donald Trump in second place in the teens, while Ted Cruz was barely touching double digits.
     
    This is somewhat ironic for Marco. By winning, and winning so big, he is actually helping Trump. Saturday was a bad night for Trump even though he won two states. Because of Kansas Cruz won about 15 more delegates. By winning 74 percent Marco will take most of the delegates from Puerto Rico, and at least for now put an end to Cruz's momentum. I am sure Trump would rather have Rubio, who is toast anyway, win than Cruz.

    I have no knowledge of PR, so I am quite surprised Cruz scored so low versus Rubio. They are both Cubans and I'd figure they'd have a fifty=fifty chance with Trump being a distant third.

    Tuesday might enable Trump to get back in gear with Michigan. But I am sure he is happy Cruz bombed today after last night. Plus it might encourage Rubio to remain in the race for the Florida primary which probably helps Trump and hurts Cruz.

    Cruz is not a typical Cuban – he is half Cuban, from Texas rather than Miami, born in Canada, and an Evangelical Protestant rather than a Catholic.

    Trump needs to do one more debate where he does ok or better and then call it quits on the endless debates. He should be able to prepare some reasonable replies to the obvious points that will be brought up and realise he needs to act Presidential and magnanimous. He should also rest up before hand.

    There was a lot of speculation that Trump hurt himself as a result of cancelling out of the Fox-sponsored debate prior to the Iowa caucuses. I never thought so. This last debate on Fox shows what he might have missed had he not skipped out of that pre-Iowa debate: Fox and the other candidates ganging up and attacking him nonstop in a determined effort to bring him down. It is pure speculation to say whether Trump's missing that earlier debate hurt him or helped him. I'm inclined to think that it may have helped him in Iowa since it allowed him to escape damage inflicted by Fox and friends.

    With the GOP's corrupt delegate allocation, Rubio is getting 1 delegate per 1,100 votes in PR (25,000 votes got him 23 delegates).

    Trump got 757,000 votes in Texas and was awarded 47 delegates, one per 16,000 votes.

    So GOP primary voters in the South, don't forget the RNC values the votes of Puerto Ricans 12 to 16 times more than your vote.

    When reading this, I wondered why some benefactor -- such as Norman Braman -- didn't just write Rubio a check for the highest reasonably plausible market value, or at least for whatever Rubio paid for it. It would raise eyebrows if not done carefully, but you'd think he could find a way.

    This would be a typical gambit a Democrat pol would arrange. I guess the Republicans, loathsome as they may be, haven't quite reached those depths yet. Republican corruption is the more institutional, macro-level, whereas the Dems are more attuned to the petty corruption typical in urban machines?

    Trump is the only candidate that treats Russia with respect, instead of terming it the Fourth Reich. He's the first Republican candidate to seriously question the Bush wars, in retrospect Ron Paul was nothing but a gadfly.

    His potential administration would hire few if any residents of the neocon Beltway think tanks.

    He is an existential threat to the very legitimacy of the regressed to the mean third generation descendants of Kristol and Podhoretz.

    No Moynihans either today.

    Clear GOPe's latest plan is to steal each and every caucus since it cannot beat Trump in closed private vote contest. But figure Trump is going to sweep a whole lot of otherwise blue especially northeast states and probably Florida.Would wager he will in fact have enough votes to win on the 1st ballot. Unless there is more and different chicanery afoot.

    With the GOP's corrupt delegate allocation, Rubio is getting 1 delegate per 1,100 votes in PR (25,000 votes got him 23 delegates).

    Trump got 501,000 votes in Georgia and was awarded 40 delegates, one per 12,000 votes.

    Trump got 757,000 votes in Texas and was awarded 47 delegates, one per 16,000 votes.

    So GOP primary voters in the South, don't forget the RNC values the votes of Puerto Ricans 12 to 16 times more than your vote.

    Yeah, but at least PRs are citizens. I’m more upset that they value Mexicans & Indians more than me.

It also confirms that saying that Jews like to live like Episcopalians and vote like Puerto Ricans. I believe Puerto Ricans seem to share the same beliefs. They want to live like Jewish billionaires and vote for Marco Rubio.

    I know that Norman Braman, the billionaire auto dealer from south Florida, has bankrolled Marco Rubio for many years and has even had his wife on his payroll and that other Jewish billionaires have come to Rubio's support. Can you name any Jewish billionaires who have taken a similar position with respect to Trump? Why are the neoconservatives like Max Boot, who are overwhelmingly Jewish so totally opposed to Trump and supporting Rubio (a man of limited intellectual abilities based on his record)?

    It’s kind of interesting how the redoubt of Republican Establishmentarian Orthodoxy turns out to be … Puerto Rico.

    Maybe, if they lose to Trump, they will retreat to Puerto Rico the way the Nationalist Chinese retreated to the island of Taiwan when they lost to Mao?

    That would be a great win for the US mainland, and at best a draw for Puerto Rico.

    I totally agree with you. Regardless of which candidate you favor, you have to admit that the current system makes absolutely no sense when it comes to allocation of delegates. Leaving the non-voting territories out of the discussion, you only have to look at my old home town, Washington, D.C., which acquired the right to vote for President in 1964 and has never voted less than 80% Democratic, as far as I know. In 1984, when Reagan achieved his landslide reelection, he got less than 14% of the vote in D.C. Despite that record, D.C. still gets 19 delegates to the Republican Convention. That is absurd, in my opinion.
    , @Alec Leamas
    But isn't this because of the smaller margins for victory in the other states and high voter turnout in those states relative to PR?

    Rubio won about 75% of the vote in PR, and no other candidate won enough of the vote to be allocated any of its delegates. Therefore, even though it was not a "winner take all" primary, Rubio "took all" due to his margin of victory over the other candidates.

    In contrast the other states: 1) had high voter turnout (which increases vote total but not delegates in play); and, 2) the margins of victory between win, place and show were much narrower. Therefore the winner of the state took only slightly more delegates than the second place candidate, and if the third place candidate placed above the floor to win delegates (usually 20%), splitting the delegate allocation among at least three candidates.

    This seems to mirror the electoral college, which is a wise and ingenious check on direct democracy and an acknowledgement that the several states create the Union rather than the other way around.

  • They say generals always start out fighting the last war, and Marco’s problem is that he is a weapon specifically designed for the last war. He would have been the ideal insider Republican candidate in about 2004. (Marco himself would obviously have been too young in 2004 — I mean a Marco-like candidate.)

    The entry of Trump had obviously upset expectations, and the word evidently hasn’t yet made it to the General Staff.

    I think Rubio will win Israel too!

    Btw, Neocons should welcome the rise of Donald Trump. It is actually good for Israel.

    Think…

    The media, academia, culture, government, and political activism in US and EU are dominated by Libs and Progs.

    One reason why Israel has ended up on the shi*t list is it has grown closer to the GOP. It pissed off many progs to see Netanyahu praise the likes of McCain and Romney while disrespecting Obama.

    So, the ‘left’ and people of color turned on Israel as the backer of ‘racist’ and ‘xenophobic’ American Right.

    But if it’s Trump vs Hillary and if Israel supports Hillary, progs and people of color will be less hostile to Israel.

    And since Hillary is a shillary for the Zionist-dominated military-industrial complex, the Neocons can leave the GOP and become Democrats again.

    If Nuland was given so much leeway to mess up Ukraine under Obama the Democrat, Neocons can cause a lot of mischief as Democrats. And if Israel follows the Neocon lead and backs the Democratic Party, then the prog rage against Israel will abide.

    It’s like progs stopped beating up on Microsoft once it got with the proggy program.
