América, Wake Up! La verdadera cara del senador Marco Rubio

 Donald Trump Invites ICE Officer Chris Crane, Fired Disney Workers, to Join Rally

The line-up for Donald Trump’s Sunday rally in Alabama includes victims of the immigration and guest-worker policies favored by
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)

The speakers include two of Rubio’s constituents who were victims of the H-1B outsourcing program, as well as Chris Crane, president of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Council.
This rally comes on the heels of a bombshell New York Times report documenting how Rupert Murdoch and Fox News colluded with Rubio to minimize public opposition to the passage of Rubio’s amnesty and guest-worker expansion bill that was backed by President Barack Obama.
The two Disney workers, Leo Perrero and Dena Moore, were laid off last year and forced to train their low-skilled foreign replacements, who were brought in to the country on H-1B guest worker visas. Their foreign replacements are just a small part of the workforce of roughly 650,000 H-1B university-trained foreign workers now holding jobs in the United States.
While Donald Trump has called on Disney to hire back all of its American employees, Rubio has sought to expand the H-1B program. As recently as last year, Sen. Rubio introduced legislationendorsed by Disney’s CEO Bob Iger via his immigration lobbying firm—to triple the issuances of H-1Bs. Disney is one of Rubio’s top financial donors, having given more than $2 million according to Open Secrets.
Dena Moore, one of those victims, recently told Breitbart News that she is voting for Donald Trump.
Rubio “never reached out” to the hundreds of Disney workers who were replaced by H-1B visas, she said. “I do believe that politicians will always side with who pays them directly or indirectly,” Moore said of Rubio’s financial ties to Disney. “They will say and do whatever it takes because they’re not being held accountable.”
Moore said that she is supporting Trump because “Trump is standing up to the bullies.”
“The American people are now the weak ones being bullied,” and Trump “is the champion who stands up to the bullies … for us,” he said.
ICE Council President Chris Crane is also set to speak at the rally.
Crane is an ICE officer of 13 years, he is a former U.S. Marine, a lifetime member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and a lifetime member of the American Legion. When President Obama enacted his first executive amnesty in 2012, Crane and nine of his fellow immigration officers sued the President to try to stop the lawless amnesty.
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)
has described Crane as an “American hero” for his whistle blowing on the immigration corruption. Crane was also a vocal opponent of Rubio’s signature Gang of Eight bill. Crane’s primary criticism of Rubio’s immigration plan was that it gutted interior enforcement and would give amnesty to illegal aliens who were sex offenders, gang members and criminal convicts. After Crane documented how Rubio treated law enforcement “like absolute trash” in an interview with Breitbart News last week, Rubio sought to smear Crane’s reputation on national television– falsely asserting that Crane’s criticisms of the bill pertained to “more kind of labor union stuff” rather than keeping the American people safe.
However, a 2013 letter obtained by Breitbart News bolsters Crane’s charges. In 2013 immediately following his meeting with Rubio, Crane wrote a letter to Rubio in which he detailed his specific concerns with the bill:
“Speaking on behalf of our nation’s ICE agents and officers, I believe there are many crucial measures missing from this legislation that must be resolved before it is introduced. Based on news reports, it is my understanding that you are filing the bill today. I hope that can be delayed so that our officers and experts can provide real legislative input on the areas we discussed last night: the lack of ICE resources, how current ICE enforcement practices leave the nation open to tactics used by the 9/11 terrorists, DHS directives that release dangerous criminal aliens back into our communities, the need for biometric exit/entry, the administration’s dangerous abuse of prosecutorial discretion, our inability to make street arrests, the breakdown of enforcement in our jails, the disciplining of officers for doing their jobs—these are only some of the many crucial interior enforcement issues not addressed in this legislation… If these issues are not resolved, I have no doubt—based on my law enforcement experience—that this proposal would further hamstring the ability of our officers to protect the public.”
After Rubio began to attack Crane’s reputation, other law-enforcement officers spoke out on Crane’s behalf-– including Sheriff Paul Babeu, Sheriff Tom Hodgson, Sheriff Sam Page, and former U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) President Ken Palinkas.

Wake Up!, América ¿Por qué Marco Rubio Si, y Donald Trump No?

Por qué Marco Rubio sí Y Donald Trump no?

Ciertamente , no hay discurso en que Donald Trump no llame a la prensa DESHONESTA por la tactica que han usado de hacer un close up de su cara y jamas mostrar las multitudes que asistieron a sus discursos. Los que MANDAN en la media saben el efecto psicologico POSITIVO que eso generaria para Trump, que ha mostrado ser un verdadero lider ARRASTRANDO PUEBLO.
Con Rubio la intencion fue marcadamente la contraria: generar la imagen publica de un lider que ARRASTRA MULTITUDES.
Todo los que saben de estas tecnicas saben exactamente que eso es lo que buscan:
La pregunta se impone:
Por que Marco Rubio si y Trump no?
Marco Rubio posee una MUY CORTA TRAYECTOEIA POLITICA y ninguna trayectoria administrativa. Por la candidatura republicana desfilaron personas con gran experiencia administrativa y candidatos con experiencia en administrar ciudades y estados completos, ninguno de los cuales llamo al parecer la atencion de stablishment.
Por que Rubio, quiza el de menos trayectoria de todos si llama la atencion?
Por que el stablishment se rinde ante el?
o sera todo lo contrario, esto es:
Lo cierto, para salir lo antes posible de los subjetivismos y las intuiciones, como donores para la campana de Rubio aperecen poderosos grupos, algunos de los cuales POR SUS INTERESES DECLARADOS PUBLICAMENTE niegan claramente el discurso oficial de Marco, a saber, hace poco Marco decia en entrevista publica que NO ACEPTA LAS RELACIONES CON LA DICTADURA CASTRISTA, sin embargo, muchos de sus promotores (fanjul y compania por ejemplo) han sido abiertos promotores publicos de esas relaciones,
Esta ultima jugada de la prensa es, sin dudas, LA EVIDENCIA MAS CLARA con la que podemos contar para establecer sin equivocos que TODA LA MAQUINARIA PROPAGANDISTICA DEL STABLISHMENT, hasta donde lo permite la ley (si no siquiera hubiesen dado camara a Trump) HA SIDO PUESTA A DISPOSICION DE RUBIO y en contra de DONALD TRUMP.
Que mas tiene que suceder para comprender que EL DINERO QUE HA ESTADO EROSIONANDO LA POLITICA AMERICANA por varias decadas

¿Y qué me dicen de las donaciones vía Internet?
 Barack Hussein Obama tuvo mucho éxito en el 2008. Del cielo le cayeron los millones .
A Marco también le caerán millones.

A dos décadas del derribo de las avionetas de Hermanos al Rescate

Cuatro jóvenes fueron pulverizados sobre el Estrecho de la Florida el 24 de febrero de 1996. La Organización Internacional de Aeronáutica Civil y el Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU condenaron el hecho perpetrado por aviones de guerra del gobierno de Cuba.
Revista Digital Latina desde 1998
Los Angeles, California
Cuatro meses después del derribo de dos avionetas civiles y desarmadas del grupo Hermanos al Rescate, con sede en Miami, Florida, la Organización Internacional de Aeronáutica Civil de la ONU y el Consejo de Seguridad de ese organismo condenaron el ataque perpetrado por dos aviones de guerra MiG de la Fuerza Aérea de Cuba, 26 kilómetros al norte del espacio aéreo cubano.
El derribo se produjo el 24 de febrero de 1996 con un saldo de cuatro muertos, tres de ellos ciudadanos estadounidenses de origen cubano y un cubano residente en Estados Unidos. Sus nombres eran Armando Alejandre Jr., Mario de la Peña, Carlos Costa y Pablo Morales.

Flores dedicadas a los jóvenes de H.R.
La confrontación se produjo luego de varias incursiones de las avionetas en territorio cubano, para lanzar desde el aire panfletos políticos y copias de la Declaración Universal de Derechos Humanos de la ONU. El comandante Fidel Castro se responsabilizó con la orden suprema del derribo de las naves. Documentos divulgados desde entonces indican que fue el actual presidente de los Consejos de Estado y de Ministros de Cuba, general Raúl Castro, quien organizó el ataque.
En su informe del 27 de junio de 1996, la Organización Internacional de Aeronáutica Civil (ICAO) de la ONU subraya que “el ilegal derribo de dos avionetas civiles el 24 de febrero de 1996 por la Fuerza Aérea cubana viola el principio de que los Estados no pueden usar armas contra naves civiles en vuelo y que, al interceptar naves civiles, las vidas de personas a bordo y la seguridad de las naves no pueden ser puestas en peligro”.
El principio mencionado por la ICAO en su informe se refiere a los estándares acordados por la Convención Internacional sobre Aviación Civil, también conocida como la Convención de Chicago, la cual fue firmada por decenas de países el 7 de diciembre de 1944.

Durante todo el tiempo, desde entonces, el gobierno de Cuba ha justificado el derribo con el argumento de que los vuelos de Hermanos al Rescate representaban una provocación, y que las avionetas fueron derribadas en espacio aéreo cubano.

El día del ataque, el espía cubano Juan Pablo Roque, que se había hecho pasar por anticastrista unido a Hermanos al Rescate, huyó a Cuba. Posteriormente, en 1998, los servicios de inteligencia de Estados Unidos descubrieron la llamada Red Avispa y arrestaron a cinco espías cubanos, que fueron condenados a varias penas de cárcel. El líder del grupo, Gerardo Hernández, fue sentenciado en 2001 a dos cadenas perpetuas y 15 años de prisión por conspiración para cometer un asesinato, conspiración para espiar, ser agente extranjero no declarado y falsa documentación. Supuestmente, Hernández coordinó la labor de inteligencia que condujo al derribo de las avionetas. Sin embargo, este hombre fue liberado en diciembre de 2014, luego del anuncio de la normalización de relaciones entre Washington y La Habana. Todos los miembros de la Red Avispa también fueron liberados.

Versiones de la prensa estadounidense indican que, tras el derribo de las avionetas, el entonces presidente Bill Clinton exploró la posibilidad de dar una respuesta militar al hecho, pero descartó la medida al percatarse de que cualquier ataque a Cuba podría poner en peligro la vida de civiles. Clinton decidió entonces firmar la Ley Helms-Burton, que codificó el embargo comercial y financiero al régimen castrista.

Hermanos al Rescate fue fundada en 1991 por el veterano de Bahía de Cochinos, José Basulto, devenido un luchador cívico no violento con apego a las doctrinas de Gandhi y Martin Luther King. El propósito de la organización era rescatar "balseros" cubanos hallados en alta mar. En el momento en que se produjo la tragedia, la organización tenía un presupuesto anual de un millón 200 mil dólares, producto de donaciones privadas.
Hasta el 24 de febrero de 1996, Hermanos al Rescate tenía cinco avionetas Cessna en las que volaban unos 20 pilotos de varias nacionalidades. Hasta el día del derribo, los voluntarios de la organización habían salvado a alrededor de seis mil "balseros" encontrados a la deriva en las peligrosas aguas del Estrecho de la Florida con ayuda del Servicio de Guardacostas de Estados Unidos, organismo que por aquella fecha calculó que de cada cinco cubanos que intentaban atravesar el estrecho, sólo uno llegaba con vida a territorio norteamericano.
La siguiente es una cronología de los hechos el día del derribo:
Audio del día del derribo de las avionetas de la organización humanitaria Hermanos al Rescate con conversaciones y expresiones de júbilo de los pilotos de la Fuerza Aérea de Cuba durante el ataque. Este material fue publicado en YouTube por el periodista y piloto argentino Horacio Cambeiro.
12:15 p.m. a 12: 40 p.m.
Radares de Estados Unidos divisan aviones MiG cubanos volando al norte de La Habana, según un reporte de la Organización Internacional de Aeronáutica Civil (ICAO, página 51, párrafo
1:15 p.m.
Tres avionetas de Hermanos al Rescate parten en una misión de rutina de rescate de "balseros". Cuatro instalaciones de radares de Estados Unidos vigilan las avionetas de la organización, de acuerdo con el informe de la ICAO.
2:50 p.m. aproximadamente
Avionetas de Hermanos al Rescate divisan un avión tipo Orion de la inteligencia militar de Estados Unidos, dirigiéndose hacia el este a su misma altitud, aproximadamente cinco millas al norte del paralelo 24.
2:57 p.m.
Hermanos al Rescate le comunica a La Habana que va a cruzar el paralelo 24 rumbo al sur, como se había hecho en otras misiones de rescate desde el 21 de julio de 1991, según el informe de la ICAO.
3: 00 p.m.
Dos aviones MiG cubanos despegan con el propósito de interceptar las avionetas de Hermanos al Rescate. Poco después, jets F15 de la fuerza aérea de Estados Unidos en la base aérea de Homestead son puestos en estado de alerta de combate. Luego se desactiva el estado de alerta. Se dijo que esta decisión se debió a un error de comunicación, según Hermanos al Rescate.
3:10 p.m.
Aviones MiG cubanos vuelan por encima de las avionetas de Hermanos al Rescate, según los mapas de radares de la fuerza aérea de Estados Unidos.
3: 15 p.m.
El mayor Jeffrey Houlihan, del centro de vigilancia de radares del Servicio de Aduanas de Estados Unidos en la base aérea March en California, identifica a los MiGs cubanos volando hacia territorio norteamericano y maniobrando alrededor de las avionetas de H.R. El mayor Houlihan hace entonces un procedimiento equivalente a una llamada 911 al Sector de la Defensa Aérea del Sureste en la base de Tyndall. Esta base le confirma al mayor Houlihan que también ellos habían divisado los MiGs y le dice: "Estamos manejando esto, no se preocupe". Estos datos fueron publicados en The Miami Herald el 3 de julio de 1996 con el titular "U.S. Radar Official: 911 Call".
Posteriormente, el mayor Houlihan atestiguó que hay un procedimiento operativo estandar mediante el cual los jets interceptores tienen que ser desplegados una vez que los aviones MiGs cubanos crucen el límite territorial de Cuba de 12 millas. Este procedimiento no se siguió en este caso, según testimonio del propio mayor Houlihan en un tribunal de Estados Unidos donde se ventilaba un conflicto legal entre la Administración Federal de Aviación (FAA) y el presidene de H.R., José Basulto.
El Centro de Control de Tráfico Aéreo de Miami también pudo haber sido contactado en cuestión de segundos para que emitiera una advertencia a las avionetas de Hermanos al Rescate, como se había hecho en el pasado, o a la base de control de Opalocka, donde está la sede de H.R., para que ésta emitiera un aviso en menos de 2 minutos, como en el pasado. Estos detalles fueron publicados en The Miami Herald el 3 de julio de 1996 a propósito del testimonio del mayor Houlihan en el juicio FAA vs. Basulto.
3:21 p.m.
Un MiG cubano derriba la primera avioneta de Hermanos al Rescate, luego de haber confirmado visualmente y haber descrito el blanco como una avioneta Cessna 337 blanca a los controladores aéreos militares de Cuba. Esto ocurrió en un lapso de 6 a 7 minutos después de la llamada 911 del mayor Houlihan. Existen transcripciones de las comunicaciones de los MiGs. en poder del gobierno de Estados Unidos.
3:28 p.m.
Otro MiG cubano derriba la segunda avioneta de H.R. siguiendo el mismo procedimiento de visualización y descripción de la nave civil, 6 a 7 minutos después del derribo de la primera avioneta y 14 minutos después de la llamada 911 del mayor Houlihan.
Para Hermanos al Rescate resulta "alarmante" que no se haya hecho ningún intento por advertir a las avionetas de la organización de que estaban en peligro de ser derribadas. De acuerdo con H.R., en incidentes previos relacionados con vuelos de aviones de guerra cubanos, las naves de H.R. fueron avisadas en pleno vuelo. Según Hermanos al Rescate, cuando esto ocurrió en el pasado, las avionetas de la organización regresaron siempre a su base.
3:35 p.m.
La primera pareja de MiGs regresa a su base en territorio cubano.
3:35 p.m.
La segunda pareja de MiGs persigue a la tercera y única avioneta sobreviviente de H.R. rumbo al norte, guiadas por un sistema de control de radares de tierra.
3:41 p.m.
La otra avioneta cruza el paralelo 24 rumbo al norte, según un radar de Estados Unidos.
3:45 p.m.
Los MiGs hacen contacto visual con la avioneta sobreviviente y piden instrucciones a Cuba. Se les ordena continuar la persecución, de acuerdo con la transcripción de un informe de la ICAO.
3:47 p.m.
Los MiGs identifican ante los controladores aéreos cubanos la tercera avioneta de H.R. como una nave Cessna 337 de color azul claro. Vuelan alrededor de la avioneta perdiendo el contacto visual dos veces, según el mismo informe.
3:53 p.m.
La avioneta de H.R. está 26 millas al norte del paralelo 24 en espacio aéreo controlado por Estados Unidos. Los MiGs, luego de recobrar el contacto visual con la avioneta, reciben la orden de suspender la persecución por encontrarse "demasiado alto", lo cual se interpreta como demasiado lejos hacia el norte. En ese momento, los MiGs cubanos están a tres minutos de las costas de Estados Unidos, de acuerdo con datos del sistema de radares norteamericano.
Hasta ese momento habían pasado 39 minutos de persecución sin que las autoridades aéreas de Estados Unidos hayan hecho intento alguno por contactar a Hermanos al Rescate, como en el pasado. La Fuerza Aérea de EE.UU. nunca autorizó a sus F15 a despegar luego de haberlos puesto en estado de alerta de combate, con los motores encendidos, para detener el ataque de los MiGs, según la revista Tropic de The Miami Herald, en un artículo publicado el 16 de febrero de 1997.

Gran victoria de Donald Trump en Nevada

 Trump Big 46, Rubio 24, Cruz 21

 Donald Trump’s dominating victory in the Nevada caucuses pushes him further out ahead of his nearest competitors for the Republican presidential nomination, giving his unorthodox candidacy a major boost heading into Super Tuesday contests next week. The real estate mogul and political newcomer now has won in the Northeast, the South and the West by riding a wave of anger at the Washington establishment among voters who’ve felt left out of the political process.
Trump’s support in Nevada and elsewhere has come from a broad swath of demographic groups that also sets him up well to capture the nomination in the contests ahead -- the rich and poor, college educated and less educated, and in Nevada, Latino voters as well. In his victory speech, he said he’s in position to put the race away.
“It’s going to be an amazing two months," Trump said, referring to the nomination calendar. "We might not even need the two months, folks, to be honest."
Rubio, Cruz
The Nevada results dealt a blow to Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, who trailed far behind Trump in second and third, respectively, in Tuesday’s Nevada contest. Rubio was counting on picking up the supporters of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, who dropped out of the race Saturday, to position himself as Trump’s top challenger. But there was little evidence of Republicans coalescing behind Rubio, as Trump beat him nearly two-to-one.
Cruz, the only candidate to best Trump so far, entered the race as the standard-bearer of conservative Republicans and evangelical Christians, but those groups have not rallied to his campaign since his win in Iowa. In addition, Cruz has spent recent days battling charges from both Trump and Rubio that he’s running a dirty campaign. His third place finish in Nevada after a third place finish in South Carolina is sure to raise questions about the viability of his campaign.
Critical Day
Cruz congratulated Trump on his victory and said Super Tuesday, which includes his home state of Texas, will be the “most important night” in the nomination race.
“History teaches us that nobody has ever won the nomination without winning one of the first three primaries, and there are only two people who have won one of the first three primaries," Cruz said, referring to his Iowa win. “The only campaign that has beaten Donald Trump, and the only campaign that can beat Donald Trump is this campaign.”
The win makes Trump the victor in three of the four states that have voted on the Republican side. The big prize for the candidates will be delivered on March 1, known as Super Tuesday, the first multi-state day in the race and one that demands more money and campaign infrastructure. It’s like a mini-national campaign, where coffee-shop campaigning gives way to the kind of state and national media coverage where Trump has thrived.
"This is what every presidential campaign dreams about: big wins in early states and all the momentum on your side as you swing into Super Tuesday," said Kevin Madden, a senior adviser to Mitt Romney’s 2012 Republican presidential campaign. "There’s still an opportunity for Rubio to bring together elements of the electorate that are anti-Trump or open to an alternative, but every day from here on out is another day where that opening gets smaller."
With all of Nevada precincts reporting, Trump had 45.9 percent of the vote. Rubio narrowly held on to second place with 23.9 percent followed by Cruz with 21.4 percent. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and Ohio Governor John Kasich, who were less aggressive in the state, were at 4.8 percent and 3.6 percent.
When CNN projected Trump the winner, a crowd of more than 1,000 supporters awaiting the candidate at Treasure Island Casino erupted into applause and chanted, "Trump! Trump! Trump!"
Angry Voters
Voters in Nevada were angrier and older than in the prior primaries or caucuses, according to entrance polling reported by NBC News. They were also more likely to want an outsider in the White House and nearly six in 10 said they are angry at the federal government, significantly higher than in Iowa (42 percent), New Hampshire (39 percent) and South Carolina (40 percent).

The polling also found that six in 10 caucus-goers want the next president to be from outside the political establishment, compared to just 33 percent who prefer someone with political experience. Voters were more evenly divided on that question in the three earlier states.
Hispanic Vote
While just 9 percent of the electorate was Hispanic, entrance polling posted by CNN showed that Trump won 44 percent of that group, followed by 29 percent for Rubio and 18 percent for Cruz.
“We won the evangelicals. We won with young. We won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated -- I love the poorly educated,” he said. “This is an amazing night.”
While turnout was heavy, Nevada Republican Party officials downplayed reports of disarray at caucus locations. There were reports that some volunteers were wearing candidate-themed clothing, but the party said that wasn’t prohibited.
Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told reporters Tuesday night at the Community College of Southern Nevada, where Trump appeared at a caucus site, that the location was "out of ballots" and he’d heard efforts were being made to print more. He attributed the shortage to the "massive crowds," saying that "this is one of the busiest polling places in the state."
As the Republican field has narrowed, Trump is more frequently targeting his two closest rivals. That trend continued during the final days of campaigning before Nevada’s caucuses.
Targeting Cruz
Trump’s aggressiveness toward Cruz follows the Texas senator’s third-place showing in South Carolina’s primary on Saturday, which has raised questions about his ability to sustain the nomination race.
Evangelical Christians, a group that coalesced around him in Iowa, accounted for almost three-quarters of the vote in South Carolina. Even with that favorable environment for Cruz, Trump beat him by more than 10 percentage points.
On Monday, Cruz confronted a major distraction when he fired his campaign communications director, who had spread a video on social media that misrepresented something Rubio had said about the Bible.
Republican Debate
Republicans will gather on Thursday in Houston for their 10th debate -- the first since Bush suspended his campaign after a poor showing in Saturday’s South Carolina primary.
Especially since Bush’s exit, Rubio has tried to portray himself as the most viable mainstream conservative to beat Trump and win a general election. He could use wins to appeal to donors because he’s more in danger of running out of money than Cruz.

Rubio, focused on future primaries, left Nevada after a Tuesday morning rally at a casino in Las Vegas and later addressed supporters in Minneapolis and Grand Rapids, Michigan. In both cities, the Florida senator pitched himself as a new type of Republican who would grow the party’s base and defeat either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders in November.
"The Democrats know this," he told the crowd of more than 2,000 people gathered in a Michigan warehouse. "That’s why they’re attacking me more than anyone on that stage."
In Nevada, Trump benefited from a high profile both nationally and in Las Vegas, where he owns property and has employees.

In a state where 21 percent of the population is of Mexican ancestry, Trump sought to tap into resentment among white Republicans by repeatedly promising to build a wall along the Mexican border.

The Nevada win is more symbolic than substantial. The state awards delegates proportionally, based on the caucus vote, with a total of 30 in play. It takes 1,237 delegates to win the nomination.
The war of words between Trump and Cruz intensified in Nevada in the days before the caucuses.
Cruz alleged that Trump backs continued federal ownership of 85 percent of Nevada’s land, prompting Trump to call him a liar, a "nasty guy" and a "little baby."
Hubert Llewellyn, 53, who attended both Cruz and Trump events Tuesday, said he was turned off by the crossfire and would caucus for Rubio.
“Ronald Reagan’s commandment was not to turn against fellow Republicans, to run a fair and concise campaign,” he said.

Fantastic Donald Trump '' TURN OFF THE LIGHTS '' Rally in Atlanta, Georg...

Why Donald Trump is overestimated

Donald Trump and his family. Saturday February 20, 2016.
John Lemandri
The South Carolina primary results don't mean Trump will be the nominee
John Hudak
Why Donald Trump is overestimated
Every other Republican candidate—and probably both Democratic candidates—would love to be in Donald Trump's shoes. Dominant, in control of most news cycles, Teflon to scandal and his own gaffes, connecting with should-be-out-of-reach demographic groups with ease, and trouncing the competition. Despite that, the reports of Donald Trump’s coronation as the next Republican nominee are quite premature. He may well end up the GOP nominee. Yet, there are several reasons why he may not.
The GOP race remains a crowded field. There are four other candidates of varying success and even if you discount Carson (you should), Cruz and Rubio are serious contenders. So long as that many candidates remain in the race, it becomes difficult for Trump to amass a majority of delegates heading into Cleveland. Cruz and Rubio may not be able to beat Trump in many of the states to come, but they can be enough of a nuisance to keep him from the type of "clinch" we have seen in previous years after a handful of primaries and caucuses. That moment usually comes early (or early-ish) when it becomes clear someone will march to the convention and the race effectively ends. This year is not one of those years.
Party rules make it hard for Trump to clinch. While some states are winner-take-all in their allocation of delegates. Many are not. Many allocate strictly proportionally or function as a winner-take-all if and only if a candidate receives a supermajority (between 66 percent and 85 percent depending on the state). Trump is "winning" by pulling 30-40 percent of states' votes, making those winner-take-all-thresholds far out of reach. It also makes securing the nomination formally (winning a majority of delegates) or informally (broad support being so obvious that further competition is seen as fruitless) that much more difficult.
Party leaders don't like Donald Trump and they're scared to death of his candidacy. The GOP brass see themselves—right or not—to be in a very strong position this year. Secretary Clinton's candidacy exists in the shadow of scandals and investigations and her primary competition is a self-described socialist. They think their chances to retake the White House are quite good, but only if they have the right candidate. They believe Donald Trump is not that candidate. The Republican primary contest has "uncommitted delegates" (Democrats call them "superdelegates") who are able to cast convention votes without input from voters. There are fewer of them than Democrats have, but in a close primary contest, they may make a difference. These unpledged delegates tend to be state party leaders.
If Republicans head to Cleveland with no candidate securing a majority of delegates (every political pundit’s daydream), and a brokered convention comes to fruition, the uncommitted delegates may play an outsized role. So, too, may the party brass—the baron-like establishment that Trump and his supporters rail against. It would be a risky proposition to strip the man with the most delegates from being the nominee, but the party may see it as their only avenue to beating a Democrat in November and thus make it a reality. For the GOP leadership the calculus is easy: if we nominate Trump we absolutely lose; if we give the nomination to someone else, Trump's supporters will be angry, but we at least have a chance of winning. Economists' expected value calculations make that decision a no-brainer. The politician's calculations make it more difficult.
That said, if Republican leadership have any opportunity to usurp Trump's momentum and keep him from being the 2016 Republican Party nominee, they will do it. The crowded field, the primary rules, and the preferences of many in the party mean it's a real possibility. Trump and, in a similar way, Ted Cruz have built campaigns and candidacies based on running against and explicitly spitting in the face of the party brass. They work well with angry voters, but in a brokered convention it is a death knell. A brokered convention is great news for party leaders afraid of Trump, for more mainstream candidates like Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio, and for the health of the Republican Party. But at the end of the day, the almost unbelievable state of the Republican primary could be salvaged on the floor of Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena. If it takes that long, the man or woman chosen in a smoke-filled room may bask in the glow of being the Republican nominee. But the real winner in that situation will be the person Democrats select as their nominee a week later in Philadelphia. In that way, the only thing worse for the Republican Party than Donald Trump would be an establishment-led overthrow of Donald Trump.
For those making absolutist predictions based on the South Carolina results, take a deep breath. This race is nowhere near over. We have no idea who the nominee will be. The only thing Trump's unbelievable win in South Carolina tells us is that the Republican primary will continue to be an unbelievable mess...maybe even a YUGE one.
//This is why we who Blog for Trump can and will make a YUGE difference. Ever vote counts and the more we who actively blog can address this issue by forwarding this blog and others to not only pro Trump FB sites, but other sites with uncommitted votes such as millennials, Hispanics, Latinos, Asians, African Americans, libertarians, and yes Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders supporters sites may push our leader over the top. You will get a lot of flack from posting on some of these sites (each one listed may have multiple sub sites to post to) but that only show you how angry you have made them.

Donld Trump runs away with South Carolina

 Donald Trump, South Carolina, Feb.20,2016

Donald Trump sealed his front-runner status. Marco Rubio revitalized his campaign. And Jeb Bush faced the reality that South Carolina voters harshly delivered.
Trump crushed the rest of the GOP field in the state's primary Saturday night, giving the real estate mogul major momentum and wounding the more experienced governors and senators who are struggling to keep pace.
Rubio, down and out after finishing fifth in New Hampshire, appeared to be elbowing past Ted Cruz and vanquished another rival.
Bush, the one-time establishment frontrunner who was trailing in a distant fourth in the early results and facing a dire cash crunch, abruptly ended his campaign Saturday night, acknowledging that the voters of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina had now spoken. Choking up, he said he was proud that he stayed true to the guiding principles of his campaign.
“Despite what you might’ve heard, ideas matter, policy matters. And I truly hope that these ideas that we’ve laid out will serve as a blueprint for a generation of conservative leaders,” Bush said in his remarks, which did not include a direct mention of Trump, who played a big role in dashing his chances. “In this campaign I have stood my ground, refusing to bend to the political winds.”
Trump, taking the stage at his victory celebration moments after Bush left the stage, relished another decisive win.
“When you win it’s beautiful,” said Trump, flanked by his family and claiming additional momentum heading into the March 1 SEC primary. “I think we’re going to do terrific there and the SEC is going to be very exciting,” Trump said. “We expect to do very well there.”
Saturday night offered a repeat performance for Trump, who also dominated the New Hampshire primary 11 days ago, handing him victories in two states with a history of boosting candidates who go on to become the eventual presidential nominee.
After stirring controversy and fending off unrelenting attacks during the last volatile week of campaigning across rough and tumble South Carolina, the billionaire-turned-blue-collar champion is only cementing his status as the clear GOP frontrunner in a winnowing field.
“I just want to congratulate the other candidates,” Trump said. “There’s nothing easy about running for president.”
He held a double-digit advantage over both Rubio and Cruz, leading with 33 percent of the vote. Rubio, meanwhile, held a slight edge over Cruz, 22.3 percent to 22.2 percent. with 99 percent of precincts reporting. Roughly 1,000 votes separated the two rivals.
“The children of the Reagan revolution are ready to assume the mantle of leadership,” Rubio said, flanked by a trio of South Carolina’s ascendant generation of GOP stars: Governor Nikki Haley, Senator Tim Scott and Congressman Trey Gowdy.
Rubio began his speech with a tribute to Bush. But, as he neared the end, he relished having knocked his mentor — and biggest obstacle — from the race.
“Now, practically speaking, it’s down to three,” Rubio said.
The failure to deliver a stronger showing was a big blow to Cruz, who is betting big on the South. In his remarks to supporters Saturday night, the Texas senator reminded voters he has still done something that Rubio and the other remaining candidates have not.“We are the only campaign that has beaten and can beat Donald Trump,” Cruz said.
The Texas senator managed to win just 26 percent of white evangelicals, whereas Trump secured the support of 34 percent of that powerful voting bloc — a fundamental problem that isn't likely to go away as the race moves forward to Super Tuesday.
"Trump is a brick on his head and he can't grow and can't win kinds of states he needs to get delegates," a GOP operative said as the results came in.
With 94 percent of precincts reporting, Bush was in a virtual tie for fourth place with John Kasich, both receiving roughly 8 percent of the vote even though Bush gave South Carolina all he had this week, bringing in his brother and mother to stump with him, while Kasich lowered expectations and spent time campaigning in other states.
The outcome of the South Carolina primary and Bush’s exit could break the dam of establishment support that has held behind the former Florida governor. It will likely drive mainstream Republicans looking for a single standard-bearer to challenge Trump and Cruz to consolidate behind the young Florida senator.
Bush, who had hoped to generate momentum from George W. Bush’s first campaign appearance in North Charleston on Monday and to win Haley’s endorsement, was trying desperately to finish ahead of Rubio, or at least close enough to justify continuing on to Nevada and perhaps Super Tuesday. But in the final 48 hours, he had been dogged by questions about whether his campaign is running out of money and whether he would quit.
As POLITICO reported Friday, many of Bush’s most loyal supporters were ready to lean on the candidate to consider quitting if he didn’t finish ahead of Rubio Saturday night.
But Rubio will still have to contend with Kasich, who plans to continue on and make a stand in the Midwestern states that vote in early March, potentially taking delegates that could otherwise enable Rubio to catch up to Trump.
In an email Saturday night, John Weaver, Kasich’s strategist, didn’t mince words, asserting that the results effectively end the campaigns of Bush and Ben Carson who was in a distant sixth with 7 percent.

"Tonight it became a four-person race for the nomination,” Weaver wrote in an email to supporters. “Only four candidates have top-three finishes in any of the early states and can justify staying in. At the same time, John Kasich has now won the so-called 'Governors Bracket' by continuing to run strong and beat expectations.”
As the winner in South Carolina, Trump will take at least 29 of the state’s 50 delegates; and he could also win the remaining 21, which will be divided among the seven congressional districts, will go to the winners in those regions.
Trump’s second straight victory adds to his momentum heading into Super Tuesday on March 1, when 12 states vote, many of them in the South. The real estate mogul is quickly positioning himself as the candidate to beat in what may still be a long nomination fight.

Stop the bleeding of America and put Donald Trump in the White House"

THIS POST IS FOR ANY UNDECIDED VOTERS IN THE COUNTRY! AND OUR CHILDREN ALSO! This is a way different time in our country! Sure we have problems here at home that need to be worked on BUT our biggest problem, and one that is quickly destroying America, is not the problems here at home but the shit being thrown at us from foreign countries! VOTERS NEED TO WAKE UP TO WHAT THE REAL PROBLEMS ARE!!!! Let’s ask a question or two. COME ON FOLKS – YOU CANNOT HONESTLY BELIEVE that Cruz, Rubio, Kasich, Clinton or Sanders can really sit down with China, Japan, India, Russia, Pakistan, Iran, Arabia, Mexico and even Canada and be able to negotiate trade deals? NO! These countries would EAT THEIR LUNCH and our country would get worse and worse!
I have watched political TV commercials and NONE of the candidates in either party will TELL YOU THE TRUTH of what is actually destroying America! But Trump does! EVERY TIME (ESPECIALLY CHINA) THEY DEVALUATE THEIR CURRENCY – AMERICANS LOSE! WE LOSE JOBS AND AMERICA’S ABILITY TO BE COMPETITIVE! IT FORCES AMERICAN MANUFACTURING TO GO OUT OF THE US TO TRY AND REMAIN COMPETITIVE! What politicians ALSO FAIL TO TELL YOU is that if money is needed to fix the internal problems in America – IT WONT BE THERE UNLESS TRADE DEALS ARE FORCED ON THESE COUNTRIES!
Note: Only Donald Trump can successfully negotiate with these countries because he has ALREADY done it on a global basis. Every time (especially China) they devalue their currency – Americans lose! We lose jobs and America’s ability to be competitive! Trump will end that situation which is spiraling out of control!
Do you believe that any of these candidates would bring jobs back to America – NO!
Note: In order to bring jobs back from any of these countries Trump would know how to deal with the global mess and Americas constant loss of jobs. Especially manufacturing jobs! Trump employs thousands of workers! All of the other candidates DO NOT have anyone employed by them and do not know the first thing about running a company that employs thousands of workers!
Do you believe that any of the Candidates will build a wall between Mexico and the United States? – NO!
Note: Only Trump can get this done and have MEXICO pay for it by stopping all money going to Mexico from Washington! The candidates running do not have a clue on how to get this done and stop illegal immigration! If fact the majority of candidates are for OPEN BORDERS!
Do you believe any of the candidates can fix our education system? – NO!
We spend more money on education that literally any country in the world BUT we are #30 or worse on the education ladder! Thank your politicians for this would put education way below their having to provide for their special interest groups “Special Projects” Been this way for a very long time. Trump has the solution to education! He knows how to fix the problem and has solutions ready to be implemented so our children can grow up in a world where their competitiveness in education will be in the top three of the world!
Trump is for our military! Have any of the candidates ever done anything for Vets – NO!
Trump is the only one who is for and helps VETS! No candidate will build the military like Trump. How? He will not allow corporations who have a stranglehold on politicians force our military to but supplies and equipment they don’t want or are too costly. Under politicians our military if forced to waste millions of dollars on equipment they DON’T WANT! Trump will end this! I could go on and on about how Trump can fix our country’s problems but it isn’t necessary because the point has been made! Politicians HAVE FAILED FOR MANY YEARS! We should not and cannot let this politician farce continue if we want to leave a country for our children! Time is running out! Look at the last 8 years. What a disaster! STOP THE BLEEDING OF AMERICA AND PUT TRUMP IN THE WHITE HOUSE!!!!

Barack Hussein Obama a los cubanos: "Nos vemos en La Habana"

El Presidente habla sobre los objetivos de su visita a Cuba en su mensaje semanal, mientras el diario "Granma" afirma que ese viaje desmonta el mito de que Cuba viola los Derechos Humanos.
El presidentre Barack Obama, durante su mensaje semanal a la nación.
El presidentre Barack Obama, durante su mensaje semanal a la nación.
En su mensaje semanal a la nación, el presidente Barack Obama habló este sábado de su viaje a Cuba lleno de entusiasmo por ser el primer mandatario de Estados Unidos que visita la isla comunista en más de 80 años.

"Estoy seguro de que mi visita es un avance en los objetivos que nos guían: la promoción de los intereses y los valores estadounidenses y un futuro mejor para el pueblo de Cuba, un futuro de más libertad y más oportunidades", dijo Obama.

El Presidente hizo hincapié en que continuará impulsando la democracia y los Derechos Humanos y que hablará con franqueza con Raúl Castro "acerca de nuestras graves diferencias".
Se refirió a las empresas estadounidenses, de las que dijo que están ayudando a incentivar la iniciativa privada y los puntos Wi-Fi para acceso a internet, lo que propiciará un futuro diferente para los jóvenes cubanos, "que tienen un extraordinario talento y potencial".

"Mi visita es una gran oportunidad para motivar al presidente Castro a discutir cómo podemos continuar la normalización de las relaciones, incluyendo la facilitación del comercio y para que los cubanos accedan a  internet".

Obama reconoció que hay enormes diferencias con el Gobierno de Cuba y dijo que Estados Unidos reafirma su compromiso con la defensa de los Derechos Humanos, los valores universales de libertad, de reunión, de religión y de hacer más próspera la vida de la sociedad civil cubana y de dar voz a las aspiraciones de los emprendedores cubanos.
El Presidente terminó su mensaje hablando en español, con un mensaje directo para los cubanos: "Nos vemos en La Habana".

La Casa Blanca, en un resumen sobre su discurso, afirma que el Presidente cree que "la mejor manera de promover los intereses y valores estadounidenses y de mejorar la vida de los cubanos es a través del compromiso".

Puntualiza que Obama se reunirá con Castro para discutir sobre el progreso que ha tenido el proceso de normalización de relaciones, que se reunirá con miembros de la sociedad civil y empresarios cubanos y que hablará directamente al pueblo cubano.
Obama y la Primera Dama estarán en Cuba los días 21 y 22 de marzo y luego continuarán viaje a Argentina.

Los mitos que según Granma desmonta viaje de Obama

Por su parte, el periódico oficial Granma publica este sábado un artículo en el que afirma que el viaje de Obama a Cuba desmonta estos cuatro mitos:

1. Cuba viola los derechos humanos
2. Obama ya ha hecho todo lo que puede
3. Los cambios hacia Cuba tienen un alto costo político
4. El poder omnipotente de la ultraderecha de Miami

El diario del Partido Comunista de Cuba afirma que el hecho de que Cuba viola los Derechos Humanos se ha repetido como un mantra y que es propaganda para desacreditar a la Revolución.
La Revolución "continúa con los mismos objetivos políticos aunque cambien los métodos", puntualiza el artículo.

Ben Rhodes, viceasesor de Seguridad Nacional de la Casa Blanca, que estuvo en las negociaciones secretas con Cuba, confirmó, según Granma, que "Obama tiene facultades ejecutivas para hacer mucho más de lo que ha hecho hasta ahora".
Granma afirma que la comunidad cubana en Florida ha sufrido "transformaciones radicales" y que el anuncio de normalización de relaciones echa abajo la tesis de que los legisladores de origen cubano tuvieran secuestrada la política de Estados Unidos.
"Con dos cubanoamericanos aspirando a la nominación presidencial en las primarias republicanas, ambos opuestos al acercamiento con Cuba, este viaje de Obama de cara al escenario electoral es, cuando menos, una prueba de la fuerza que aún conserva la Casa Blanca para manejar la política exterior de Estados Unidos", subraya el diario.

La disidencia reacciona a declaraciones de Granma

Martí Noticias preguntó sobre el artículo publicado en el diario oficial Granma a la líder de las Damas de Blanco.
Berta Soler afirmó que el
Gobierno cubano miente sobre los Derechos Humanos en la isla.
"Una vez más, se pone en práctica (…) la mentira por parte del Gobierno cubano", señaló Soler.
Si en Cuba no hay violaciones de Derechos Humanos, reflexionó, "¿cómo el Gobierno cubano no te da libremente acceso a internet?".
La líder del movimiento opositor femenino denunció que durante
42 domingos consecutivos las Damas de Blanco y activistas pro Derechos Humanos han sido reprimidos violentamente.
"Si acaso eso no es violación de los Derechos Humanos, pues, entonces, vamos a creer lo que dice el periódico Granma", concluyó.

Elizardo Sánchez, presidente de la Comisión Cubana de Derechos Humanos y Reconciliación Nacional, dice que el viaje de Obama es una visita de Estado y que al igual que los viajes de otros estadistas no "dicen o desdicen de la situación real que sufrimos en Cuba".
"En Cuba seguimos teniendo la peor situación de derechos civiles y políticos, de derechos laborales, sindicales, y otros derechos fundamentales en todo el hemisferio occidental. Y eso el presidente Obama y su Gobierno lo saben perfectamente. Igual que la comunidad internacional", declaró Sánchez.
El pastor protestante Mario Félix Lleonart, por su parte, espera que Obama y el Gobierno de Estados Unidos "hagan quedar (al Gobierno de Cuba) como lo que son: unos violadores de los Derechos (Humanos)", y que el Presidente haga lo que le recomienda The New York Times: Que le pida a Raúl Castro que propicie una transición hacia la democracia, y que cesen las violaciones a los Derechos Humanos.

El periodista Reynaldo Escobar, quién ha dicho anteriormente que no tiene nada en contra del viaje de Obama a la isla, opina que la “visita de un mandatario a otro país no desmiente nada acerca de ese país, ya sea leyenda, mito o realidad”.

Escobar agregó, por tanto, la visita de “Barack Obama a Cuba no desmiente el hecho de que aquí se violen los Derechos Humanos, a menos de que el gobierno cubano crea que la presencia del presidente norteamericano en un país es un certificado de que ahí no se violan los Derechos Humanos”.
El periodista disidente subrayó que los frutos de este acercamiento entre Cuba y Estados Unidos se verán a largo plazo. “Todo esto es el preámbulo, el resultado habrá que verlo después”, concluyó Escobar.

El poeta Jorge Olivera, uno de los 11 expresos políticos del grupo de los 75 que aún reside en Cuba, dijo a Martí Noticias que el editorial de Granma “es un intento de manipulación”.
Olivera, también de acuerdo con de la visita de Obama a la isla, recalcó que “el presidente Obama ha dicho totalmente lo contrario, ha abogado, y dice que va a abogar públicamente en Cuba por la defensa y el respeto hacia los Derechos Humanos. Yo no creo que la intervención que tenga el presidente Obama vaya a favorecer al Gobierno cubano”.

El expreso político considera al presidente Obama “lo suficientemente comprometido, aunque algunos no lo crean así, con la problemática cubana” y agregó que “Estados Unidos es un país soberano y nunca ha dicho que va a dejar de apoyar a la sociedad civil independiente y a la oposición pacífica”.

Visita de Barack Hussein Obama a Cuba.


La visita de Mr. Hussein Obama a Cuba no me sorprende. Desde hace tiempo ese ha sido su sueño confeso.

Hace más de cuatro años dije que se estaba ¨"cocinando" algo con Cuba y que ese algo se estaba haciendo con la participación masiva de su disidencia pre frabricada a la cual se sumaban algunos blogueros que escribían en el portal (al parecer desmantelado ya) Voces Cubanas desde  Cuba, con su creadora,Yoany Sánchez, al frente, y una parte del exilio cubano que ya avisoraba la quiebra de la industria anticastrista, también incluí en la lista de los participantes a la Fundación Cubano Americana lidereada por el hijo de Mas Canosa,

El marcado interés que ha mostrado Hussein Obama (desde que asumió la presidencia en el nesfasto enero del 2009) por establecer relaciones con la tiranía mafiocastrista de La Habana, me ha llevado a pensar en más de una ocasión en los petrodólares de Chavez regalados a su guía y mentor, Fidel Castro, y la posible desviación de éstos para subfragar parte de la campaña presidencial del actual inquilino de la Casa Blanca. Lo sospecho porque las donaciones millonarias a Barack Hussein Obama se hicieron vía internet. Bien sabemos cómo funciona internet, y cómo se presta para cometer cualquier tipo de fraude, incluyendo fraudes electorales de todo tipo.

 Mi amor por Cuba no me ciega. Los únicos culpables de lo que está sucediendo  allá desde hace más de medio siglo, somos nosotros mismos, los cubanos, que no hemos sabido, o no hemos podido, como dirán algunos, derrotar a ese monstruo de mil cabezas que nos impuso  un sistema político-socio- económico que nos ha convertido en esclavos.

Esclavos  todos porque tanto los de allá como los de acá, de una forma u otra, hemos sentido, sufrido y sucumbido   ante  las poderosas garras  de la mafia castro comunista. Mafia  dirigida y mantenida  por una élite militar,apoyada por el partido comunista (único partido en Cuba) y los millones de cubanos oportunistas que le han allanado el camino con pétalos de rosas  a sus propios verdugos. Digo millones de cubanos porque si los opositores, los contrarevolucionarios, los anticastristas, fuéramos mayoría hace rato otro gallo cantaría.

Me duele Cuba, me apena y me duele haber nacido allí, porque como cubana me siento derrotada y lo que es peor, sin fe y casi sin esperanzas de ver a Cuba libre de tanta ignominia antes de morirme. Mis sueños y mis anhelos de tener una patria libre de sectarismos construída por todos, una patria  pluralista, incluyente,con todos y para el bien de todos los cubanos, se han ido desvaneciendo con el paso de los años.

La Cuba donde nací y pasé mi primera década de vida, ya no existe. La Cuba de hoy no me gusta para nada. Es una isla hermosa por sus paisajes, por su belleza natural, pero como país está destruída fisica y moralmente. Ruinas se ven por doquier, la miseria humana se respira en cada rincón.

Vaya Barack Hussein Obama a compartir el banquete con los tiranos. Disfrute sus vacaciones y lleve a Michelle para que al menos despierte un poco de curiosidad a las pobres negras y mulatas jineteras cubanas que sueñan  con una vida mejor. De cualquier manera ya usted, Barack Hussein Obama, será recordado para siempre como el peor presidente que ha tenido  esta gran nación en toda su historia. Dudo que alguien pueda superarlo.

New poll results show Trump nomination increasingly likely

Respuesta de Donald Trump al papa francisco

" For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful. I am proud to be a Christian and as President I will not allow Christianity to be consistently attacked and weakened, unlike what is happening now, with our current President. No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man’s religion or faith."

In response to the Pope:
If and when, the Vatican is attacked by ISIS, which as everyone knows is ISIS’s ultimate trophy, I can promise you that the Pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been President because this would not have happened. ISIS would have been eradicated unlike what is happening now with our all talk, no action politicians.
The Mexican government and its leadership has made many disparaging remarks about me to the Pope, because they want to continue to rip off the United States, both on trade and at the border, and they understand I am totally wise to them. The Pope only heard one side of the story - he didn’t see the crime, the drug trafficking and the negative economic impact the current policies have on the United States. He doesn’t see how Mexican leadership is outsmarting President Obama and our leadership in every aspect of negotiation.
For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful. I am proud to be a Christian and as President I will not allow Christianity to be consistently attacked and weakened, unlike what is happening now, with our current President. No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man’s religion or faith. They are using the Pope as a pawn and they should be ashamed of themselves for doing so, especially when so many lives are involved and when illegal immigration is so rampant.

Pope suggests Trump 'is not Christian'

(CNN)Thrusting himself into the combative 2016 presidential campaign, Pope Francis said Thursday that GOP frontrunner Donald Trump "is not Christian" if he calls for the deportation of undocumented immigrants and pledges to build a wall between the United States and Mexico.
The Pope, who was traveling back to Rome from Mexico, where he urged the United States to address the "humanitarian crisis" on its southern border, did not tell American Catholics not vote for Trump.
But Francis left little doubt where he stood on the polarizing issue of immigration reform.
"A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not in the gospel," the Pope told journalists who asked his opinion on Trump's proposals to halt illegal immigration.
Trump immediately fired back on Thursday, calling Francis' comments "disgraceful."
"No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man's religion or faith," he said in statement. Trump added that the government in Mexico, where Pope spent the past five days, has "made many disparaging remarks about me to the Pope."
"If and when the Vatican is attacked by ISIS, which as everyone knows is ISIS's ultimate trophy, I can promise you that the Pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been president," Trump added.
The tussle between Trump and Francis -- two outsized personalities who seldom shy from speaking their minds -- seems to have been building for some time. Before the Pope traveled to Mexico last week, Trump cast the pontiff as a political naif who "doesn't understand the dangers" at the U.S.-Mexican border.
Trump's social media director Dan Scavino suggested the comments were hypocritical. "Amazing comments from the Pope- considering Vatican City is 100% surrounded by massive walls," he tweeted.

During the wide-ranging press conference aboard the papal plane, Francis also seemed to suggest that contraception may be used to prevent the transmission of the Zika virus and praised Saint John Paul II's "holy friendship" with a Polish woman.
But it was his comments on Trump that seem sure to dominate the political conversation, perhaps handing a gift to Trump's GOP opponents and opening Francis to criticism that his papacy is too partisan and his policies too liberal. Polls indicate that while Democrats adore the Pope, Republicans view him a little less favorably.
Asked if American Catholics should vote for Trump, Francis demurred.
"As far as what you said about whether I would advise to vote or not to vote, I am not going to get involved in that. I say only that this man is not Christian if he has said things like that."
The Pope appeared somewhat unaware of Trump's exact stance on illegal immigration, though, saying that he would give him "the benefit of the doubt" until he had heard exactly what the billionaire businessman had said.
The Rev. Federico Lombardi, a Vatican spokesman, said Tuesday that the Pope knows "Trump expresses himself in an expressive way," but "is not always up to date on the latest statements."
Trump has pledged to build an $8 billion wall along the United States' southern border and says he will force Mexico to pay the tab. Trump has also said that, if elected president, he would eject some 11 million undocumented immigrants from the country.
"You have people coming in, and I'm not just saying Mexicans — I'm talking about people that are from all over that are killers and rapists, and they're coming into this country," Trump told CNN's Jake Tapper last June. 

Before the Pope left for Mexico, Trump called Francis "a very political person" and suggested that the Francis, who celebrated Mass Wednesday near the U.S.-Mexican border, was a pawn of the Mexican government.
The Pope made light of Trump's accusations.
"Thank God he said I was a politician because Aristotle defined the human person as 'animal politicus.' So at least I am a human person," he said. "As to whether I am a pawn, well, maybe, I don't know. I'll leave that up to your judgment and that of the people."

The White House weighs in

White House spokesman Josh Earnest, asked about Pope Francis' comments on Donald Trump, referred back to President Obama's remarks last month at the National Prayer Breakfast.
He said Obama "talked about how his own personal Christian faith informed his view of the values and priorities that he has chosen to champion in the White House."
"We've noted on a number of occasions that a number of those values and priorities are not shared by Mr. Trump," Earnest said.
Then he took a jab at Trump's repeated questioning of Obama's Christian faith.
"I will however extend to Mr. Trump the courtesy he has not extended to the president and not use this opportunity to call into question the kind of private personal conversations he is having with his God," Earnest said.

The Pope in Mexico

The Pope's comments on Trump came on his way home from an emotional trip to Mexico, where the first Latin American pontiff was greeted by boisterous crowds that often burst into songs or tears as he approached.
Celebrating Mass on Wednesday in Ciudad Juarez, a city just across the border from the United States, Francis delivered a stinging critique of leaders on both sides of the fence, calling the "forced migration" of thousands of Central Americans a "human tragedy" and "humanitarian crisis."
"Being faced with so many legal vacuums," the Pope said during his homily before a congregation of more than 200,000 people, "they get caught up in a web that ensnares and always destroys the poorest."
As he prepared to leave Mexico, Francis Pope thanked Mexicans for opening their doors and their lives to him. "At times I felt like weeping to see so much hope in a people who are suffering so much."
