CarlyForinia1Carlie Fiorina addressed the Greenville County Republican Women’s Club during her second campaign stop in Greenville in a little more than a week. The only woman in the Republican race, she could not resist taking a couple of swipes at front runner Donald Trump, who had commented negatively on her appearance, and appeared insincere in his apology.

The candidate’s staff prescribed the structure for the luncheon and rushed her across the hall to a book signing at the conclusion of her presentation that was delivered with precision, but contained no new material.

Trump don’t think He is Morally Obligated to Defend Obama Every Time Someone Says Something Bad About Him

On Thursday, the day after the candidate forum at the Reagan Library in California, Donald Trump was taking questions from the audience at an event in Rochester, New Hampshire. A man in the audience addressed Trump and said, “We have a problem in this country. Its called Muslims.” He went on to say that we know our current president is one and they have training camps around the country and he asked what Trump would do about the problem.

Trump did not agree or disagree with the statement of the questioner. “A lot of people are saying that bad things are happening out there,” Trump responded. He promised to look into the alleged problems.

Everyone from Lindsey Graham to Hillary Clinton cut loose on Trump for not challenging the questioner and Defending Obama by telling the man he was wrong and that Obama was a Christian and not a Muslim.

The Evangelical Attraction To Donald Trump PDF Print E-mail

I get this question a lot so I figured I better write about it. Here it is: “Why are evangelical voters attracted to Donald Trump? I don’t get it.” Well, you may think the answer is a complicated one but actually it’s not. Let me explain.

Donald Trump operates in a world of absolutes. A world of right and wrong; a world of winners (him) and losers (McCain, Perry, etc); a world of put up or shut up (literally). Trump’s world is colored in black and white. Their ain’t much grey. And what does Trump get for speaking out so boldly without holding back? Public ridicule.

Now, think of conservative evangelicals. In their quest to champion biblical values, their mindset is much the same. It is a world of absolutes. They believe the Bible to be the inerrant Word of God. Non-negotiable. They believe there is only one way to heaven and that is through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Non-negotiable. They see the world through the lens of spiritual warfare (good vs. evil). And what do evangelicals get for speaking out so boldly without holding back? That’s right: public ridicule.

Republican Support for Governor Shrinks in Recent Poll

A poll taken by Public Policy Polling, a Democrat public opinion firm, conducted between September 3 and 6 found a large shift of Democrat support to Governor Nikki Haley after she led the stampede to remove the Confederate battle flag from the Soldiers Monument at the State Capitol.

While Governor Haley and the NAACP took credit for the attack on South Carolina Heritage that culminated in removal of the flag from the monument, Democrat Party Chairman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz took credit on national television for the coordinated coast to coast uprising that pressured the Republican dominated state legislature to succumb to the demands of the Governor and all the leftist organizations that have destruction of all things “Southern” as their long-term goal.

If you see a Candidate Washington Embraces, run and hide

TedCRuzy_Page-01Senator Ted Cruz demonstrated his strong conservative Christian values during a rally in Greer, Friday evening. The Senator’s father, Rev. Rafiel Cruz, is a Baptist Pastor and a dynamic speaker well-known among conservative Christians in Upstate South Carolina.

Cruz was interrupted by enthusiastic applause following virtually every statement. He took a couple of swipes at perceived Democrat opponents in the presidential race.

“The Democrat field consists of a wild-eyed socialist with ideas that are dangerous for America and the world and Bernie Sanders.”

Cruz said the President should begin each day on his knees and listed the 5-things he would do on the first day as president.
