The second round of 2016 GOP presidential debates occurred September 16. This time, the “establishment” propaganda outlet was CNN. Although the field of candidates slightly dropped, it still hadn’t thinned out enough for everyone to be on the same stage. Again, low polling candidates participated in an early debate while top polling candidates debated later on. As before, both debates were disappointing. My impressions follow:


EARLY DEBATE – Terribly boring. CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash, and SRN’s conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt were the moderators.


Former Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) – Blah, Blah, Blah… Why hasn’t this retread gotten the message: True conservatives are sick of “Big Government” Republicans! Santorum said NOTHING new. He is an “establishment” hack who supported all the “progressive” entitlement programs and “neocon” wars during the Bush Jr. presidency. I don’t know why Santorum’s miniscule poll ratings haven’t deterred him from running. Apparently, he just doesn’t get it.


Governor Bobby Jindal (R-LA) – I thought highly of Jindal until he went on a “Trash Trump” tirade. His “Dump Trump” outbursts coupled with low polling are reasons Bobby should go back to Louisiana and prepare for the next hurricane.


Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) – Gomer Pyle rerun; Lindsay is Gomer and “Insane John McCain” is Sergeant Carter. “Well GOLLLLY… If I’m your president, I’ll send 25,000 troops to Syria, attack the Russians and start WW3!” Graham’s incessant drum beating “to take out Iran” is simply more reckless interventionist foreign policy. Just what America doesn’t need – another “neocon” sociopath in the White House.


Former Governor George Pataki (R-NY) – DOA.


LATER DEBATE – Not a debate; a media circus. Same moderators as before: CNN’s Dana Bash and SRN’s Hugh Hewitt were “benign”. CNN’s lead moderator, Jake Tapper was the “pot stirrer”. His role was to start a “food fight”. And that he did. It wasn’t long before several of the lead candidates were pissing all over each other – so much for a “meaningful debate”.


Business Executive Donald Trump – Although “The Donald” was not his usual “stellar self”, he effectively maintained a commanding presence and rational composure despite numerous and viscous attacks from many competitors. His confrontation with Senator Rand Paul (R-TX) at the outset was unfortunate and unnecessary though. Trump should have never questioned the legitimacy of the senator’s polling, allowing him to be “number 11” on stage. Trump was masterful telling Carly Fiorina; “You’ll never work for one of my companies after what you did to Hewlett Packard.” He still remains the only true Washington “outsider”. Don’t let the bastards wear you down Donald…


Former Governor Jeb Bush (R-FL) – Looks like Jeb! isn’t doing so well. Jeb! lacks passion and doesn’t appear interested in running. Once a “poster boy” of the “establishment”, Jeb! represents EVERYTHING that’s wrong with the Republicans. A key signatory to the “neocon manifesto”, the Project for the New American Century makes him a “Big Government” politician having globalist ambitions with an appetite for interventionist foreign policy. It was a “Kodak Moment” when Trump told him; “Your brother destabilized the entire Mid-East by invading Iraq”. I thought Jeb! was going to cry…


Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) – Too bad Rand isn’t polling well. Clearly, he’s the most knowledgeable candidate regarding our nation’s real history, Constitution and financial system. Moreover, he’s been an intrepid defender of American civil liberties and has fought vigorously against the military-industrial-surveillance state. Rand should be the next head of Homeland Insecurity so he can dismantle it.


Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) – Cruz didn’t say much. Cruz and Trump seem to have something going on. Perhaps a VP slot if Trump wins???


Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) – Although very bright and persuasive, Rubio embraces the highly dangerous interventionist foreign policy espoused by his “neocon” pals. This fully disqualifies him from my vote.


Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) – Christie is thoroughly an “establishment” creature. It was patently obvious he tried elevating himself above others while playing referee as Trump and Fiorina got into a full scale nuclear exchange over their past business dealings. At least they have business experience; unlike “Pizza Man” Christie who’s a “career politician” and loves the “Police State”.


Former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina – Carly’s now GOP “media darling”. She was poised, sharp and on message; and viscous to Donald Trump. Truth be told, Trump was correct; CEO Carly decimated Hewlett Packard. The merger of Compaq Computer with HP led by Fiorina in 2002 resulted in 30,000 layoffs; so much for her “job creating” ability. In 2005, HP stock tanked to less than half its value and she was forced to resign. Carly’s also a “globalist”. She favors expanding H-1B visas where engineers and technologists from foreign countries can be hired for considerably less than Americans; so much for her “America First” policy. Carly also PRETENDS she’s an outsider, but she’s NOT. Her father was a Republican Deputy Attorney General. And Richard Nixon appointed him a member of the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit Court. Carly was senior advisor in McCain’s 2008 presidential run and thus a diehard “establishment” whore. Lastly, Carly’s at ease invading the privacy of American citizens; she was instrumental assisting the CIA and NSA as Chair of the Defense Business Board finding creative ways for tech companies to capture personal data for the government with or without a warrant. I cannot support ANY candidate willing to compromise the Bill of Rights.


Dr. Ben Carson – A brilliant and wonderful man, but not surprisingly, “too nice”. We need a president who has the experience and testicles to turn America around.


Former Governor Mike Huckabee (R-AR), Governor John Kasich (R-OH) and Governor Scott Walker (R-WI) – Low polling, no traction; time to withdraw.


Watch Fiorina as she tries to take out Trump…
