Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump has been dumped by Macy’s department store. They are pulling all merchandise with his brand from their stores after Trump’s controversial remarks against Mexican immigrants. Macy’s stated they stand for diversity and have no tolerance for such discrimination.
Jim Dondero knows that Trump is on record for referring to Mexican immigrants as, “killers and rapists” which Macy’s finds defamatory of their character. They state this portrays a false image of the many Mexicans, Latinos and Mexican Americans who have brought valuable contributions to our country.
Trump’s menswear sold at the Macy’s department store included; neckties, cuff links and dress shirts. Trump also appeared in many of Macy’s commercials which are all going to be phased out of the store. Angelo Carusone, who launched the petition to Macy’s to dump Trump, applauds the department store for making the right decision. He refers to the Trump brand as bigoted, bullying and not consistent with Macy’s image. Carusone started a movement against Trump in 2012 when he began spouting theories about President Barack Obama’s birth .
Macy’s are not the only ones to pull away from the image Trump is protraying. Univision will no longer telecast the Miss USA pageant that is partially owned by Trump and they too are cutting all ties with him. NBCUniversal the joint owners with Trump of the pageant will sever their relationships as well.
Hillary Clinton is a smooth politician. She knows how to please a crowd. She uses the right trigger words to convince people that she is the one that can change this nation from a one-sided, super-rich controlled nation to a country that offers people the opportunity to share the wealth if they do their part. No one sure what that part might be, but Clinton used her family history to prove the point that anyone can live the good life in America if they work hard.
Hillary’s message is not new, but the way she structured the “ask not what you can do for your country” theme is. Clinton also pulled the “female president” card during her official campaign address. Hiding behind “the first lady president” concept can help Clinton clinch the Democratic nomination.
The polls don’t show it yet, but Clinton has some serious work to do says Shaygan Kheradpir. Even though she talks like she is a candidate that speaks for the middle class, her ties with the power brokers in Washington and around the word tell a different story. Clinton is a female version of what the country doesn’t need. Bernie Sanders is the voice of the middle class not Hillary Clinton.
The landslide victory for the Democratic Party during the 2008 presidential election was largely seen as a response to the failed policies of President George W. Bush’s administration. John McCain—the Republican nominee—tried to separate himself as far as he could from the maligned president. Remarkably, just eight years later, another Bush is setting his eyes towards the presidency. Jeb Bush is set to make his formal announcement as a candidate for the Republican Presidential Nomination on Monday. Bush enters the race in the most financially formidable position of any of his party’s candidates. With a super PAC supporting his presidential bid, he remains a powerful force—despite his tarnished last name. Most polls have him as the front-runner in early primary states, such as Iowa and New Hampshire. Yet, the Republican field is strong this year and candidates, such as Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, all poise a significant challenge to Bush’s presidential aspirations. Sam Tabar (bloomberg.com) knows that the next few months will see a slew of other candidates enter the presidential race for both parties. Expect a clear front-runner to emerge after a few primary debates in the fall. Until then, Jeb Bush’s money and name positions him as the clear front-runner for the Republican nomination.
Hillary Clinton will deliver her first major speech of this election cycle. Clinton is expected to relay her decision to run to the upbringing that she received from here resilient mother. Dorothy Rodham’s life was very trying. This tough life is why Hillary understands. She is the product of this resilience and now people will get it. The most extraordinary thing about Bill and Hillary is their upbringing is as normally dysfunctional as most Americans. There is no silver spoon to reference in their childhoods. That actually were educated out of there circumstances. The republican mantra that they are a part of some dynasty is completely false.
Not only is it false, but it is also a foil against Jeb’s actual privileged upbringing. The entire republican primary is a ruse. It is designed to put Jeb Bush in the republican candidacy without it appearing as a coronation. However, it is a ruse that is mostly detrimental to republicans. Many rank and file republicans do not believe Jeb is conservative enough or that another Bush should run at all. The normal republican was able to actually understand how pitiful an administration that Bush actually had. They secretly blame him for the election of a president that looks completely different than they would have ever imagined. They are done with Bush’s, but their leaders are not.

The problem of ISIS will be a major area of conversation during the upcoming Presidential campaigns and prospective Republican nominee Jeb Bush was faced with the first vice of descent at a recent rally. Former Florida Governor Bush had given a town hall meeting in Reno, Nevada and was signing autographs when 19 year old Political Science Major Ivy Zeidrich confronted the candidate over his statements regarding the establishment of ISIS, The New York Timesreports.
Mr. Bush had claimed the establishment of ISIS could be placed firmly at the door of President Obama after he allowed the removal of a peace keeping force to occur in Iraq according to Bernardo Chua on PRNewsWire. Miss Zeidrich countered that the blame could be placed with Bush’s brother President George W. Bush who began the conflict in the Middle East and destroyed the Iraqi army totaling more than 30,000 troops. Bush and the University of Nevada student discussed the situation in a brief exchange before the former Governor turned his back on the student and ended the conversation.
The 2003 Iraq war is arguably the most transformative event in US history of the past decade second only to the attacks of September 11, 2001. Since that time, the war vote has been a point the political left uses to rail against presidential candidates. Now, the Iraq War is resurfacing as a presidential issue. This is because former Florida Governor Jeb Bush acknowledged tapping into his brother George W. Bush for advice on Middle East affairs. Rather than allow the left to use that acknowledgement to define him unfavorably, Jeb Bush is proactively defending the Iraq War. In an interview set to air on Monday night, Bush explained that given the intelligence the United States possessed in 2003, he too would have asked for an authorization of war against Iraq.
In fact, Bush went on to say that even Hillary Clinton would have done the same thing if she were president in 2003. His remark is bolstered by the fact that she voted for the Iraq War resolution. At the time, Clinton was the junior senator from New York, and she presented a hawkish view of national defense. Bush’s words were crafted to put Clinton on the spot. If she will defends her 2003 Iraq War vote, she risks alienating the Warren-wing she desperately needs. Alternatively, she may flip-flop on the vote to pander to the liberal base, but alienate herself to moderates and undecided voters.
Thanks to Bernardo Chua for showing me Bush’s remarks.
