Trump vs Cruz Event Obviously Pre-Planned July 21, 2016Posted by Coonsey in Uncategorized.

The Trump VS Cruz media grabber last night was preplanned with or without Cruz acknowledgement. Think about it Republicans. What better way to grab more FREE AIR TIME a BIGGER AUDIENCE and MEDIA ATTENTION then to REPORT TO THE MEDIA that, “he may or may not endorse” on Wed night?
It’s been reported that the Trump ‘family’ knew Cruz would NOT be endorsing on Monday. Did they inform the media of this fact and therefore, NEWS? NOPE! Why would they? If the media already knows what Cruz will say there’s nothing to discuss or debate for the next 2 days of the convention. So, instead, they stay silent, letting the media stew, discuss and argue over what Cruz will do Wed Night, thereby drawing even MORE audience, coverage and FREE AIR TIME.
What good reason could there be to have Cruz speak on Wed if this wasn’t preplanned? The campaign isn’t stupid, they rarely make mistakes and NEVER own up to them if they do. In fact, Cruz himself could have been a big part of this plan. Cruz is always out for himself, perhaps Trump made one of his big DEALS with Cruz. You do this for me and I’ll give you Sec of State or Attorney General or Sec of Def…..or I’ll even back you in 2020 if I lose this election.
As for Trump walking into the hall at the end of Cruz’s speech, again, preplanned. Steal the attention away from Cruz. Get media all stirred up discussing his action.
As for Trump saying, “I loved it” about the speech, again, preplanned. Grab the media’s attention – why would he say that if Cruz didn’t endorse him???? In other words, cause even more discussion.
Trump’s campaign has been one huge television event, each event is planned to make the media react. If media reacts, things are accomplished. Television viewers enjoy excitement, the not knowing what will happen events, they debating, etc…
If I have any suggestion for Hillary it would be – hire the best television producer you can find, maybe even Sat Nite Live’s guy. Make your campaign funny, exciting, an attention grabber – throw out the old way of campaigning. Keep the media is LIMBO….they hate the NOT KNOWING WHAT WILL HAPPEN.
I forgot to add a bit about having Mike Pence speak AFTER Cruz, and walking on stage afterwards, again, preplanned to take away the attention Pence got from his speech. It’s always about TRUMP, nobody has a right to out stage him so he will do anything to get the attention away from that person. If you noticed, he couldn’t even sit still very long during his son’s speech, kept waving, smiling, pointing, talking, etc.. Mr Trump is Stuck on HIMSELF.

Several have declared that the Party will never unify because of the deep divide between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders supporters. I humbly disagree.
While it is true that according to polls a large portion of Bernie’s supporters may not vote for Hillary in the General Election, it is not true, that if they are true Democrats, they would vote for Donald Trump over Hillary. If a person believes in the platform of the Democrat Party, they ‘will’ vote for Hillary in the end.
We all, at some point, want something we can’t have. For example, that first new home we’ve been dreaming about. You have a picture of what the home will look like, how big it will be, the layout of the kitchen and bedrooms, how the home will look to a visitor, a picket fence, beautiful yard, etc… When you go to your realtor you tell them exactly what you want and the way it should look. They begin looking for you. They make several calls having you go look at the perfect home, they say, you need to see. Only you find out it’s not what you want at all. You look for days, weeks and even months hoping to finally run into the home of your dreams. Soon however reality sets in, you either can’t afford the home of your dreams because it’s too expensive, or the vision you had is just not out there. You end up accepting a beautiful home that isn’t exactly as you pictured it would be but it has many features you like, so you buy it.
That’s how I see every election. You pick the person you think would make a great President. You push their qualities to other voters. You get angry when your person is criticized or being treated unfairly. Even though your candidate and the other one that has similar ideas or plans, you prefer your person. Words are exchanged, facts are presented, etc… In the end your person doesn’t win. While disappointed and even angry at the results for different reasons, you come to the realization that the other candidate is still better than what the other Party is presenting. At least you get a part of what you had visioned as the best nominee, so you vote for them.
That’s what happens in almost every election. There may be a few that will settle for nothing else, but it’s a rare case.
So calm down Hillary supporters, things will end up your way and hopefully she will win in November, meanwhile, let the voters that haven’t voted tell us who ‘they’ support. Then let us pray we have a winner!

It’s sad how the media is now using Bernie’s drop in fund raising as just one more reason for him to drop out. They fail to point out however that most candidates funds drop at this point in any primary. They also fail to mention that Bernie’s donations in April exceeded that of Hillary’s in March. Let’s wait and see what Hillary’s donations came to in April – with I might add – the help of the media and Washington establishment pushing her as the “winner”.
I sincerely hope Bernie supporters, and those that dislike the way the media controls our Democracy, will go donate ‘even more money’ than they have in the past. I know I will, just to prove them wrong!
Enough Already, Let the Voters Decide April 28, 2016Posted by Coonsey in Uncategorized.

There are 1236 delegates still available, 3 months till the convention and nearly 6 months until the Nov general election. One story, one major event, one more scandal could change the whole ball game, yet the media and certain individuals are pushing for Bernie Sanders(D), Gov Kasich(R) and Sen Cruz(R) to drop out and basically ignore the millions still wanting to vote. I say let the voters decide, not the media or establishment of each Party. (more…)

Republican Candidates Careless About Voters April 25, 2016Posted by Coonsey in Uncategorized.

I’ve seen Republicans over the years try and even recently take away the rights of Democrat voters but they’ve gone to a new low today.
Senator Cruz and Governor Kasich, Republicans, who are running for President have ‘decided’ to help each other by ignoring their fellow Republican’s desires within specific States. Within Indiana, New Mexico and Oregon, they’ve decided they will each give up their campaigns within those States to the other. In other words, Cruz won’t campaign within New Mexico or Oregon, giving Kasich a chance to beat Donald Trump and in exchange, Kasich won’t campaign within Indiana allowing Cruz to try and beat Trump there. Their goal is to take away delegates from Donald Trump.
They are not only completely writing off the campaign crews within those States that have probably worked all year long trying to get votes for their candidate; they are telling Republican voters in those States, “Sorry, but we care more about stopping Trump then getting your support for President.
While I think it would be entirely unfair for Mr Trump to lose the nomination just because he didn’t quite make the 1237 magic number of delegates, missing the target by perhaps as much as 75 or less, and the other two candidates not getting anywhere near that number; but Donald Trump isn’t much better.
He’s admitting now that his actions in the beginning, calling other candidates names, attacking minorities, attacking the media, etc… was all just a show to get voter’s attention and votes. Like his old television show, “The Apprentice, You’re Fired”, he was performing, it was supposedly all an ‘act’ to sell a product, namely ‘him’. He had to act that way he says, to get people excited enough to vote for him.
Now he claims he will become the ‘real’ Donald Trump, very Presidential, if he wins the nomination for president for the Republican Party. He’s been fooling millions and millions (as he calls it) of voters since day one.
I sincerely hope and pray that those Republican, Independent and some Democrat voters will remember what these Republican candidates did to them when it comes to a possible contested convention, and even more important, when the General Election rolls around to their State. They were manipulated and lied to by all three candidates showing they could care less what the voters want.
Bernie, Be the Underdog They Say You Are April 21, 2016Posted by Coonsey in Uncategorized.

For the past couple of months the media and Hillary Clinton supporters have been claiming that Senator Bernie Sanders numbers don’t add up to a win at the Democrat Convention. After the huge win in New York, they are now claiming that Bernie could hurt Hillary by discussing ‘the issues’ and where they differ. Don’t discuss her connections to Wall Street or large corporations they tell him. Don’t discuss her large speaking fees she gets from those companies. Don’t discuss her pushing for fracking, her involvement in Libya or Iraq and don’t discuss the fact that she only wanted to raise the minimum wage to $12.50 and Bernie from the beginning has pushed for $15 and hour. Just stick to the issues, they say. Say what?
They tell Bernie that after New York that he definitely cannot win the nomination, his numbers just cannot add up to the required amount needed. They say she has over 2 million more votes than he does, and several hundred more Super Delegates on her side, where they’ve been since before the Primary even really began. They say that even if he tries to contest the nomination that there is no way that those delegates will pick him. The establishment has decided, Bernie has lost and he needs to throw in the towel and start supporting Hillary Clinton for President.
So Bernie, be the loser, or better yet, the underdog as they claim you are. Instead of claiming you have a path to victory, tell voters that the path is being obstructed by the Democrat establishment leaders and Hillary’s campaign.
It’s time to give ‘warning’ to your supporters. Unless voters stand up, get registered (especially if their State is a closed Primary), gather their family and friends and get out and vote, Senator Bernie Sanders will not be the Democrat Nominee for President. This is a pure example of the need for that political ‘revolution’ Bernie’s been pushing since day one of his campaign. The People Must Decide, not the establishment leaders. (more…)
Buck Stops Here: When Convenient to Me April 15, 2016Posted by Coonsey in Uncategorized.

Remember the famous words by former President Harry Truman, “The Buck Stops Here”? Well we have gotten few examples recently of when that phrase might ‘not’ be acceptable for former Sec. of State, Hillary Clinton to use and when she will use it if it’s helping her display her “experience” and “judgement” as being a ‘part’ of former President Bill Clinton’s administration, as Senator of New York and as Sec. of State for President Barack Obama during her campaign.
Very little has been said by the so called debate ‘experts’ about the way Hillary basically ‘passed the buck’ or ‘blame’ for Libya and Syria’s mistakes on President Obama last night during the CNN’s Democrat Debate between Sec. Hillary and Sen. Bernie Sanders. Eliza Collins wrote a column about it, thankfully. (more…)
