Official GOP Delegate Tracker: Trump at 1238 Delegates

Official GOP Delegate Tracker: Trump at 1238 Delegates

Did you seriously think there would be a brokered convention?  That’s a pipe dream of the mainstream media.  Today, the Associated Press estimated that Mr. Trump has reached 1238 delegates.

The number of delegates needed to win the Republican nomination is 1237, which represents 50%+1.  Trump has reached 1,238. With 303 delegates at stake in five state primaries on June 7, Trump will easily increase his delegate count.  The media has wasted the entire month of April talking about a convention.

Mr. Trump’s win in the GOP delegate race now sets the stage for the most exciting presidential race in the fall.  Trump was put over the top in the AP delegate count by a tiny number of the party’s unbound delegates who told the AP they would support him at the national convention in July. Among them is Oklahoma GOP chairwoman Pam Pollard.

Trump, a political newbie who would constantly tweet and talk from the sidelines – but had never run for office, easily beat 16 other Republican contenders in the primary campaign.

Many RINO’s and liberals have issued hysterical warnings about Mr. Trump, fearing an American return to greatness.

But millions of grass-roots activists have embraced Trump who now have broken the record for the number of votes won by any Republican in the primaries.

Steve House, chairman of the Colorado Republican Party and an unbound delegate who confirmed his support of Trump to the AP, said he likes the billionaire’s background as a businessman.

“Leadership is leadership,” House said. “If he can surround himself with the political talent, I think he will be fine.”

Trump’s pivotal moment comes amid a new sign of internal problems.

Hours before winning the nomination, Mr. Trump fired political director Rick Wiley, who was a traditional GOP operative (ineffective).

Almost 1 year ago, Mr. Trump’s Republican presidential nomination started with an escalator ride.

Trump and his supermodel wife, Melania, descended an escalator into the lobby of the Trump Tower on June 16, 2015, for an announcement that the celebrity real estate developer was indeed seeking the presidency.  In the months that followed, he easily dispatched the weak Republican field.

Mr. Trump’s win reinforces the notion that Iowa cannot pick a winner and should not be first.

He ran low campaign costs — just $57 million through the end of April. He covered most of it with at least $43 million of his own money loaned to the campaign. He spent less than $21 million on paid television and radio commercials. That’s about one-quarter of what Jeb Bush and his allies spent on TV – in a single month.

Donald Trump, 69, is the son of a New York City real estate magnate Fred Trump, had risen to fame in the 1980s and 1990s, overseeing major real estate deals, watching his financial fortunes rise, then fall, hosting “The Apprentice” TV show and authoring more than a dozen books.

Democrats Launch 100 Million in Attack Ads on Trump

Democrats Launch $100 Million in Attack Ads on Trump, taking advantage of the amateurish GOP delay in funding the Trump presidential campaign.  The Trump Campaign doesn’t have the cash on hand to combat this latest Democrat offensive.

In polls, Donald Trump’s image with minorities and women just behind Hillary Clinton’s polling numbers.  Minorities hate Bernie Sanders.  Now that he’s the official GOP presidential candidate, the Democrats are about to unleash an virtual tsunami of TV and Internet attack ads – just to damage Mr. Trump’s image with minorities.

Billionaire though he may be, Trump doesn’t have the cash on hand to counter the onslaught. From the Associated Press:

Priorities USA, the lead super PAC backing Hillary Clinton, has already reserved $91 million in television advertising that will start next month and continue through Election Day. In addition, Clinton’s campaign and Priorities USA have both debuted online videos that cast Trump in a negative light — a preview of what voters will see on TV over the next six months.

So far, Priorities USA is the only group on either side that has rolled out such an ambitious advertising plan geared toward the general election. The group’s leaders say they’re trying to avoid what they see as the core mistake made by Trump’s Republican rivals — not pushing hard enough against him until it was too late.

“There’s a reason that we have a head start,” said Justin Barasky, a Priorities USA spokesman, “and it’s that we’ve taken Donald Trump seriously all along, unlike the Republicans.”

The group’s ad strategy will test what has been a hallmark of Trump’s GOP primary rise: his ability to withstand — even thrive in the face of — tens of millions of dollars in attack ads.

An Associated Press review of Priorities USA’s TV buys, collected by Kantar Media’s Campaign Media Analysis Group, reveals a formidable 22-week advertising blitz through what the group considers key battleground states: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio and Virginia….

The week of the election, Priorities USA plans to spend about $8 million in the seven battleground states.

The heaviest concentration is in Florida, where the group has reserved $23 million in time, mostly in Orlando and in Tampa.

The group also plans to spend about $19.5 million in the traditional presidential bellwether state of Ohio. More than half is for Cleveland, Akron and Columbus.

There’s no substantive GOP counterweight to the pro-Clinton effort — partly because Trump has repeatedly trashed big donors and called the outside groups that can raise unlimited money from them “corrupt.”

As the presumptive GOP nominee, Trump is now beginning his outreach to donors. But even if he fully embraces outside help, he’s far behind: One super PAC backing him, Great America, was almost $700,000 in debt at the end of March.

Being the party of old liberals, the TV ads the Democrats will launch against Mr. Trump will resemble a famous, four-minute spot used against Republican Barry Goldwater in the 1964 presidential contest.  As if anyone will watch a 4-minute commercial in this day and age.

Latest Clinton Scandal: Bill and Energizer

Latest Clinton Scandal: Bill and Energizer

Bill Clinton and Julie Tauber McMahon, who visits so often when Hillary Clinton isn’t home in Chappaqua that the former president’s Secret Service detail have given her a code name: Energizer.  The fit, blond mother of three, who lives just minutes from Bill and Hillary Clinton’s home in Chappaqua, West­chester, is the daughter of Joel Tauber, a millionaire donor to the Democratic Party.

The Clinton Foundation arranged a $2 million government pledge to a company owned by a wealthy blond divorcée — who some say is the frequent visitor to his home nicknamed “Energizer.”

The “commitment” to Julie Tauber McMahon’s firm from the Clinton Global Initiative was placed on its 2010 conference agenda at Clinton’s urging, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.


Bill Clinton’s latest scandal


Clinton even vouched for the company when it lobbied for federal funding. He helped steer an $812,000 federal grant to it by endorsing the funds via then-Energy Secretary Steven Chu, the Journal said.

Government watchdogs blasted the Clinton foundation Friday for aiding a for-profit firm.

The Clinton Global Initiative has been previously criticized for receiving donations and grants from governments and corporations that had business before Hillary Clinton when she was secretary of state.

But the tax-exempt charitable group’s move to steer funds to a private interest — Bill’s lady friend operating the for-profit Energy Pioneer Solutions — may have violated federal law, the watchdogs said.

“It really stinks. It is very highly suspicious on its face. This is a company serving products and services, not a charitable purpose. It raises a lot of a lot red flags,” said Matthew Whitaker, a former federal prosecutor who heads the ethics watchdog group the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust.

Donald Trump also reacted on Friday, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee said on “Fox & Friends.”

“People have been talking about this for years. I have no idea what went on. I certainly don’t.  Wow! It’s a bombshell. There’s no doubt about it.”

McMahon has, of course, denied having an affair with the former president.

Other owners of the firm, which was formed to insulate homes in rural America, include Democratic National Committee Treasurer Andrew Tobias and former Democratic congressional candidate Scott Kleeb.

Particularly troubling is that the connection to Energy Pioneer was at one point removed from the Clinton Global Initiative’s Web site in 2010 to hide the link between ­McMahon and the ex-president, sources familiar with the case told The Wall Street Journal.

“It has all the hallmarks of fraud, self-dealing and general corruption,” said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch.

“What else was deleted?”

Another watchdog said laws are not equipped to deal with the overlapping interests of the sprawling Clinton foundation and its principals, which include an ­ex-president and the current Democratic front-runner for the presidential nomination.

“The Clinton foundation’s work, by its nature, blurs the lines between charity, business, politics and public service, making it very difficult to evaluate in a traditional way,” said Sunlight Foundation Director John Wonderlich.

“Our nonprofit laws were designed to create accountability but were not designed to handle a situation like this, where titles like president, presidential hopeful, secretary of state and first lady all blend with fund-raising, board membership and brokering access.”

A foundation rep defended the payout to a for-profit firm as legal and “a common practice in the broader philanthropic space.”

Aeropostale bankruptcy details

Aeropostale (NYSE:ARO), an international mall retailer that focuses on teen fashion, has filed for bankruptcy, according to reports. Aeropostale (NYSE:ARO) bankruptcy details including the details of the store closing.

The chain said it will close 113 stores in the United States and 41 in Canada in an effort to “achieve long-term financial stability.” The company has about 800 stores total internationally.

The move will force the closure of the chain’s store at the Mall at Stonecrest, according to a closure list on Fortune magazine’s website. The company also has stores at Lenox Square and Cumberland, Perimeter and Southlake malls.  A store at the Shoppes of River Crossing in Macon will also close, according to the Forbes list.

Aeropostale (NYSE:ARO) is the latest chain troubled by a turbulent retail environment that is struggling against increased online shopping and changing consumer habits. Athletics giant Sports Authority also is closing stores while it undergoes bankruptcy proceedings.

Whether it was market conditions or the behavior of their lenders that drove Aeropostale (NYSE:ARO) into bankruptcy, the teen-oriented clothing retailer has difficult decisions to make about which stores to keep and which to close. They’ve already decided on a preliminary closing list.

However, since how liquidation sales normally work is that prices get hiked back up to the original retail price and then gradually lowered, don’t expect any sales on jeans, sweaters, and t-shirts if there’s a closing store near you for a little while yet. Also, keep in mind that the employees working the liquidation sale are normally store employees who are about to lose their jobs. Be nice to them. We reformatted the closings list from the original court document: you can sort the list by state, city, or mall name if you feel so inclined.

Donald Trump is going to troll his way to victory

In Internet parlance, a troll is a malevolent mischief-maker, a commenter who says something politically incorrect, then sits back and enjoys the resulting furor — sometimes even fanning the flames under multiple contradictory identities.

In politics, the master troll is Donald Trump.

During the recent GOP nominating process, he gave the media the vapors by criticizing John McCain’s war record, and promising to ban all Muslims from the US and build a giant fence across the Mexican border. Each time, bien-pensant society (largely consisting of leftist politicians and fellow-traveling journalists) assured their increasingly nervous followers that this time the troll had gone too far, that Trump was finished.

Instead, he only got stronger. Why? The public was tired of politics as usual, sick of polite society. In the Internet age, they loved the troll.

Last week, The Donald set off another tempest in a piñata when he posted a Cinco de Mayo tweet of himself sitting at his desk about to dine on a taco bowl from the Trump Grill. What really frosted his critics was his line: “I love Hispanics!”

It was classic Trump, being simultaneously innocuous (what was he going to say — “I hate Hispanics”?); funny (is he serious?); and sure to get plenty of attention. Once again, there was the master troll, on every news show and political Web site in the country. “Dumb and condescending and racist,” groused Gawker.

Meanwhile, his fans just laugh and sit back to await the next outrage. Trump has disrupted the conventional wisdom of politics, where every speech is focus-grouped into blandness. Some think he says whatever pops into his head, but it’s more likely that he often makes statements just to be mischievous, in order to discomfit and disrupt his enemies.

Whatever he says doesn’t have to be particularly consistent, it just has to get the goats of the right people, to keep everyone focused on him, not on Hillary Clinton. Heck, even Hillary isn’t focused on Hillary.

What does this mean for his chances of being elected?

Well, the people who hate Trump aren’t going to stop if he no longer says outrageous things. The people who love Trump aren’t going to stop backing him. Those who haven’t made up their minds will, I suspect, not take everything Trump says seriously. But they may be amused, especially when compared to Hillary Clinton’s scandals. Setting up your e-mail server to hide your correspondence from the public while the Romanians hack into it sounds a bit worse than tucking into a taco bowl.

The only worry Trump should have is if he fails to follow through on his promises. If his fans find out he’s trolling them, it really will end him.

Politics today, as Trump understands, is largely a narrative-driven reality show with good guys and bad guys.

His campaign is a gamble that the good guys — the scorned white working class, economically struggling inner-city blacks to whom Obama and the Democrats have consistently given the back of their hand, patriotic Americans in general — vastly outnumber the bad guys moving jobs overseas, racking up debt, allowing immigrants to flood in unchecked.

And if you don’t believe that, just ask Barack Obama, whose juvenile foreign-policy guru, Ben Rhodes, recently confessed that the White House shamelessly manipulated its own useful idiots of the press and others (“the Blob,” he called it) in order to foist its disgraceful Iran deal upon a trusting but duped public.

But I suspect the liberal politician attitude toward “shaping narratives” will be a typical one — it’s only right when we do it.

FLASHBACK: Donald Trump Donates Over $100,000 to Israeli Emergency Rescue Service

Real estate tycoon Donald Trump has pledged to donate over $100,000 to Israeli emergency rescue service United Hatzalah, The Algemeiner has learned.

The gift, which will go towards the purchase of four ambucycles, costing $26,000 each, was inspired by his friend, billionaire Stewart Rahr.

   See the photos of Trump’s 100 Million Golden Penthouse.

Last month, Rahr arranged the donation of 50 ambucycles for the group through his own contribution and that of his friends.

“I just love the energy level of United Hatzalah,” Rahr said at a dedication ceremony in Jerusalem overlooking the Western Wall Plaza and Temple Mount. “I just love everyone sitting here who are part of this Mitzvah today. This is the type of organization I relate to, starting from the bottom just like I started.”

Rahr, a well known New York personality who calls himself “The King of Fun,” has known Trump for several years, The Media Line recently reported. Trump told the publication how Rahr once attended a charity dinner where the real estate tycoon was being honored and “just stood up and gave a million dollars.”

“That’s the way he is,” he said.

United Hatzalah is Israel’s first and largest all-volunteer emergency rapid response service. It has a fleet of over 250 ambucycles and uses cutting edge patented GPS based dispatch technology.

Trump has been a vocal supporter of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. His daughter, who converted to Judaism, is married to real estate scion Jared Kushner.
