The GOP Debate tonight is going to be a Bloodbath of sorts yet it seems to me that Donald Trump is the ‘Bermuda Triangle of Politics’; endorse or mess with him and YOU seem to vanish—anyone seen Sarah Palin lately?

Donald Trump now acts presidential
Ventura, CA, 03-03-2016 Thursday: After watching Donald Trump speak on Tuesday night following his stunning accumulation of additional delegates, I have to say his speech was one reminiscent of a presidential candidate and not the reality TV star and real estate billionaire.  While he made a few jabs at ‘Little Marco’—who deserves any jab Mr. Trump directs his ay because of his actions and accusatory hate speech over the past two weeks—Donald Trump could have torn him asunder but did not. 
What’s more, he also congratulated Ted Cruz for his strong wins in Texas, Oklahoma, and Alaska and did it in a way again reminiscent of someone feeling comfortable in his position and knowing that all future roadblocks launched by the other three competitors simply will not stop him on his path to the nomination and then the White House.
First, however, we have to see what happens with the quartet at tonight’s GOP debate on the Fox News Channel in Motown—Megyn Kelly, Bret Baier, and Chris Wallace will be there—again.     
Poor Dr. Carson—he finally cashed in his chips
Yesterday, sadly, Dr. Ben Carson decided that he was—finally!—going to suspend his presidential campaign, something most of us thought he was going to do following achieving NOTHING in Iowa when he said he was going home. 
Oh, I know that is a sore spot because Donald Trump uses Dr. Carson to pound away at Senator Cruz but I guess the money pool evaporates far more than the good doctor’s friends, donors, and possibly Donald Trump are willing to replenish it. 
You see, I am among those who believes that somehow and in some way, money flows around a variety of campaign finance blocks and into the campaign funds of each of the billionaire’s competitors. 
The path of the money is so convoluted no one could ever trace it back to the Donald, which is good for both him and them and here is why:  
Many people despise Donald Trump
Mr. Trump knows there are many among the Republican Party who absolutely despise him and we see it in the countless and low-spirited insults and attacks they continually launch at him. 
He manages to grab 30-40-percent of most contests while Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, John Kasich, and Ben Carson continue receiving widely varied percentages of each primary or caucus although if they do not rise to a certain level—generally 20-percent—they receive no delegates whatsoever for their trouble. 
If the number of opponents within the GOP fell to one other strong competitor, say, Ted Cruz or maybe Marco Rubio—although I no longer have any respect for the big-eared pudding packet—then the Donald might not be in the lead or worse, might be fighting for his ‘political life.’ 
I somehow do not see that happening anytime soon.   
The Early Stage GOP Debaters took it to the Donald early on and showed the way
For a long time, the other Republican candidates (except for those normally delegated to the early debate stage) shied away from going head-to-head with the feisty billionaire. 
The early candidates, such as Rick Santorum, Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee, George Pataki, and Lindsey Graham avoided direct confrontation because they saw what could happen to them when they did—a smack down of epic proportions and funny sound bites and Saturday Night Live skits lampooning them to pieces. 
We saw what happened to the ever-faithful Jeb, a man who always tried to RISE to the occasion but who never could and became the first of the MAIN DEBATERS to toss in the towel like the pathetic loser that he is.  
Once Governor Bush bragged about his NFL Fantasy League stats and Governor Chris Christie smacked him down as though he were his punk, we all knew Jeb was going to go down like a plane afire.   
Still, the other GOP candidates kept their gloves on all the while Trump had his off and was going for broke
As the numbers began dwindling, the competition fighting to STOP Trump continued to keep the gloves on all the while the irascible reality TV star had his off and pummeled the snot out of them.  
 It was hilarious to see some of them stumbling about; having taken more insults, jabs, verbal blows, and even some open mocking because none of them knew how to respond.   
The others all believed that at some point, Trump would throw in the towel once he accomplished whatever his SECRET MISSION was and abandon the race.  Perhaps he thought that if he made a good showing, he could drive up the ratings for whatever television project he had on mind: maybe ‘Political Apprentice?’  
Why, why, why
Why would the other Republicans such as Cruz, Rubio, Kasich, Carson, and perhaps several of the others continue to throw the occasional jabs while Trump unloaded on anyone who crossed him including some of the debate moderators who seemingly had agendas of their own to push? 
They would not attack the Donald because they feared angering his ever-present and ever-loyal voters and fans, minions who would abandon any schmuck who might inherit the delegates, voters and potential lifelong followers of their hero should he leave the race for some unforeseen but hoped for reason. 
They refrained from going after the billionaire until it became apparent that NO matter what Trump said did, or what others said of him, he was not going to leave the race. 
At that time, approximately 17-20 days ago, Cruz, Rubio, and Jeb began fighting back.  For Jeb, however, it was too late and he had to throw in the towel and admit defeat.  
Perhaps Trump and Cruz will make a non-aggression pact and take Little Marco out of the running
I think Senator Cruz would maybe make some sort of pact with Mr. Trump that ‘if you do not hammer me, I will not hammer you.  Enough of telling everyone I am the reason Dr. Carson became upset because the fault of what happened to the good doctor was HIS own fault—he said he was going home following Iowa and NOT on to New Hampshire. 
‘What’s more, stop calling me a liar, stop saying I am a nasty, nasty guy and that I have no friends and I will refrain from hammering you—let’s knock floppy ears out of the race instead.’ 
The BIGGEST Danger I see on the GOP Side is Little Marco
Right now, the biggest danger I see on the GOP side is Marco Rubio, he is akin to the punch-drunk fighter who knows he has no hope but who has no plans to go down on his own. 
He is out there throwing every below-the-belt jab, punch, and maybe even a kick at Mr. Trump while the successful businessperson gives a stately and low-key press conference following his major wins on Super Tuesday. 
I say the time for Marco Rubio to leave the race IS NOW because he is delusional.  He makes himself believe that the finger of God is going to anoint him with the power, the ability, and the stamina with which, to topple Donald Trump. 
Here is the deal, Marco: I will never vote for you because to me, you are a spoiled brat who does not know when to shut his damned mouth.  How about those apples, folks— enough is enough, right?
Tonight, I will tune into the Fox News Channel because I want to see the carnage close up and in person.  I think by the time the debate ends and the voting begins again, 1-2 others will exit the race on the GOP side.  Good riddance—hey, has anyone seen Sarah Palin lately?  How come those who endorse Donald Trump seem to uh, disappear?  The billionaire is a ‘Bermuda Triangle’ of sorts for failed politicians.
See you tomorrow.          
Thank you!

  1. I am amazed at how Donald Trump continues mowing them down one by one and to look at the faces of each one as they go is for lack of a better word, ‘priceless.’ We all know that Jeb Bush and his plan were to WIN the nomination without winning the base. We heard this last year, in disbelief, mind you, but he said it. He planned on sucking up all the money available from the BIG DONORS and then playing the conservatives off against one another until one-by-one they dropped out of the race. Imagine the surprise of the mainstream GOP leaders when Donald Trump entered the race and at the first FOX debate, little Megyn Kelly sought to take Donald Trump out of the race. Trump struggled but he managed to retain his cool and then he managed to begin mowing down his competition one by one. Oh, Jeb put up a fight as did Christie, Jindal, Graham, Perry, Walker, one-by-one all of the SAVIORS of the GOP went down in smoking defeat. Pataki, RINO. Graham, GAY. Walker, BORING. Jindal, NO CHANCE. Fiorina, COLD. Huckabee, THE PAST. Rick Santorum, WAY PAST. Rand Paul, NUT like his dad. Jeb, LOSER. Gilmore, WAY, WAY PAST (but good). Dr. Carson, NICE BUT SNL TRASHED HIM. Christie, OBAMA LOVER. Each one of the GOP potential candidates has gone down in flames and soon, ‘Little Marco’ will go down, too, LOSER—NASTY ONE, TOO. What do you think? I think the RINO establishment is to blame for everything that happens to them and yet, they cannot see it—oh, boohoo. / Posted by Moses Scharbug III of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day.
