    http://www.politico.com/story/2016/08/republican-releases-ad-promising-to-stand-up-to-trump-226642Republican leaders have concluded that Donald J. Trump is a threat to the party’s fortunes and have begun discussing how soon their endangered candidates should explicitly distance themselves from the presidential nominee.


    For Republicans in close races, top strategists say, the issue is no longer in doubt. One House Republican has already started airing an ad vowing to stand up to Mr. Trump if he is elected president, and others are expected to press similar themes in the weeks ahead.

    Political party: Republican

    Kissinger left office when Democrat Jimmy Carter defeated Republican Gerald Ford in the 1976 presidential elections. Kissinger continued to participate in policy groups, such as the Trilateral Commission, and to maintain political consulting, speaking, and writing engagements

    In November 2002, he was appointed by President George W. Bush to chair the newly established National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States to investigate the September 11 attacks.[96] Kissinger stepped down as chairman on December 13, 2002 rather than reveal his business client list, when queried about potential conflicts of interest

    The fact of the matter is that those promises will never become a reality because the Donald will not be elected president of this great country. So, those promises are null and manifestly hollow to begin with. Good try, though, Republican'ts.

    Besides that I've no idea why you thought that relevant, that quote/meme sounded like bullshit to me so I looked it up:

    https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Henry_KissingerMilitary men are "dumb, stupid animals to be used" as pawns for foreign policy. Kissinger has denied saying it.

    The only evidence that Kissinger ever said this was a claim in the book, The Final Days, by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, in chapter 14 (p.194 in the 1995 paperback edition). Woodward & Bernstein claimed that one of Kissinger's political foes, Alexander Haig, had told someone unnamed, that he (Haig) had heard Kissinger say it. That's triple hearsay, made even weaker by the fact that one of the parties is anonymous. Kissinger has denied ever saying it, and it was never substantiated by Haig, nor by anyone of known identity who claimed to have heard it. As Kirkus Reviews noted about the whole book, "none of it is substantiated in any assessable way."

    In fact, the quote is not even very plausible, on its face. Kissinger served with distinction in the U.S. Army during WWII, and was awarded the Bronze Star. He has always been very respectful of other servicemen and their sacrifices. For him to have said such a thing would have been wildly out of character. In fact, the awkward phrasing doesn't even sound like Kissinger, whose English prose is consistently measured and careful, despite his heavy accent, even when he speaks extemporaneously.

    This is politically so tricky--how to thread an elephant through a needle. If they force him out with whatever they've got on him, they could shred their party, If they snub too much and he walks, that could shred it too. If they draw too close they could shred themselves. Yet if he wins and winds up in office which I doubt but anything is possible, they lose their party to him. So their best bet is to keep him in the game, bet against him, hope like hell he loses and then try to regroup after Clinton gets in. And even at that they'd have to somehow spin off the un-sheeted bigots and reposition themselves for aging millennials. Can they do even that? It'd be real curious to see what they look like 10 years hence.

    Look! someone animated your elephunt...

    In a move that looks certain to backfire, the Republican Party just forced Trump to endorse vulnerable Republican senators John McCain and Kelly Ayotte.

    The problem for Republicans is that the only way that they may keep the Senate is if voters split their ballots by voting against Trump, but for their incumbent Republican senator.

    What the Republican Party just had Trump do was the exact opposite of what they needed.

    CONFIRMED: Pollsters Loading Polls with Democrats to Give Hillary a Lead Over Trump

    Jim Hoft Aug 2nd, 2016 6:12 pm 184 Comments

    Donald Trump shattered the previous GOP primary record by 1.4 million votes this year — and that was with 17 candidates in the race!

    Hillary Clinton received 1.5 million fewer votes this year than she did in 2008 – when she lost!

    Trump continues to sell out venue after venue.

    Hillary can’t fill a high school gymnasium this week without hauling in high school kids to sit in the stands.
    Democrats are in a panic.
    So leave it to the media to jump in and help their candidate.
    Reuters tweaked their polling methods this week to give Hillary a lead.

    Republicans are sick of Trump too.
    Every Republican I know says they can't vote for Trump.
    They feel cheated by the rednecks and know-nothings who took over their party.
