PALM BEACH — Donald Trump and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson have mended whatever discrepancies they had on the campaign trail, with Mr. Carson formally endorsing the business mogul on Friday in Palm Beach.

Mr. Carson said he entered the presidential race because of the will of the people, and warned about Republican Party leaders trying to divide the party and its voters.

“It’s all about the people, not about the Republican Party or the Democratic Party,” Mr. Carson said during the press conference. “What I have been seeing recently is political operatives trying to assert themselves and thwart the will of the people — that’s a dangerous place to be right now.”

Mr. Carson warned about the so-called “Never Trump” campaign and called for the GOP to unite behind Mr. Trump.

    The e/GOP RINO’s are livid that GOP conservative patriarch, Senator Jeff Sessions (R- Alabama,) endorsed Trump for President instead of Cruz.

    Three other patriots, former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer and Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and most recently Ben Carson also endorsed Trump for President.

    The e/GOP RINO’s slink away and ignore that, rather than try to explain it.

    If the e/GOP even tried to insult Senator Jeff Sessions it would be likened to spitting on the cross to the American voters.

    In addition, Trump has all the “RIGHT” enemies to make me a solid supporter.

    The GOP Leadership is complicit in enabling Obama’s treasonous agenda.

    The U.S. government is mostly run by just five people: Barack Obama, Mitch McConnell, Harry Reid, Paul Ryan, and Nancy Pelosi.

    Last December, these five pushed through a horrible Omnibus spending bill to fund the government through next September that amounts to a betrayal of American voters, especially on immigration matters.

    Where do I begin to condemn this? I’ll start with GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan.

    It didn’t take long for Ryan to break all his promises on immigration, did it?

    When he was running for Speaker two months ago, Ryan promised he would not bring up immigration bills that did not have the backing of a majority of Republican House Members.

    Yet as soon as he got the chance, Ryan snuck several huge immigration giveaways into the Omnibus spending bill Congress approved.

    It goes further:

    »Nearly QUADRUPLES the number of H-2B low-skilled foreign workers allowed in this year. This could raise the total of these workers this year from 66,000 to 264,000.

    Not only that…

    »FUNDS a large increase in Syrian and other refugee resettlement in this country. Instead of a timeout and a full security review, Congress handed Obama everything he wants.

    »FUNDS Obama’s catch-and-release policy that virtually stops deportations.

    »FUNDS Sanctuary Cities, so that cities like San Francisco that refuse to turn over jailed illegal aliens to the feds will face no cut in funding.

    »MAINTAINS tax credits to illegal aliens in the form of the Earned Income Tax Credit. That is, if a family is poor enough, they not only pay no income tax, the government pays THEM. Yes, that includes illegal aliens! Also, Congress continues to allow illegal aliens to claim child tax credits on their tax returns.

    »FUNDS the continued relocation into America of the unaccompanied minors who are marching across the border into Texas and states. The numbers of these crossing the border is way up again this year.

    Even with all these outrages I’ve mentioned, there are still MORE terrible things hidden in the Omnibus bill, which passed both the House and the Senate. A hopeful sign is that 95 House Republicans joined with 18 House Democrats, and 26 Senate Republicans joined with 6 Senate Democrats to vote NO on this monstrosity.

    Yet, most Republicans and most all the Democrats voted yes, and it passed. Their complicity in this sell out is the real threat to the Constitution and Americans that want jobs and security.

    GOP Establishment’s Rick Wilson: Donor Class Must ‘Put a Bullet in Donald Trump’

    On Tuesday evening, establishment Republican consultant Rick Wilson said the GOP establishment donor class must find a way to “put a bullet” in GOP front runner Donald Trump.

    In an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Wilson conceded that “Trump is still a very powerful force right now” because he appeals to part of the of the conservative base that Wilson said was activated by his “nativist” message. Wilson insisted that the donor class “can’t just sit back on the sidelines and say, ‘oh well, don’t worry, this will all work itself out.’”

    “They’re still going to have to go out and put a bullet in Donald Trump,” Wilson said. “And that’s a fact.”

    Shock: GOP establishment considering DRASTIC move if Trump’s the nominee …………Support Clinton!!!

    As The Hill reports, some big money Republican donors may support Hillary Clinton if Trump ends up being the GOP nominee.

    thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/261227-gop-donors-wrestle-with-possibility-of-trump-nomination

    Via WND and The Hill:

    Although Donald Trump has signed a pledge to support the Republican Party’s nominee, that doesn’t mean the party’s establishment will support him, should he win the GOP presidential nod.

    A report by the Hill suggests the big money Republican donors are actually looking to support Hillary Clinton for commander in chief if Trump is at the top of the GOP ticket. Yes, the Democrat Hillary Clinton could be getting millions of dollars from Republicans.

    The website says: “In conversations over the past month, GOP establishment donors have confided to the Hill that for the first time in recent memory, they find themselves contemplating not supporting a Republican nominee for president.”

    When asked for whom he would cast his vote if the choices are only Mrs. Clinton and Trump, the former mayor of Los Angeles and a longtime Republican establishment figure, Dick Riordan, said: “I would probably go find a deserted island.”

    “I think Hillary is disgusting,” Riordan told the Hill. “And I think Trump is crazy.”

    The paper says Trump was the topic at a recent Beverly Hills lunch hosted by former U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Rockwell Schnabel.

    In attendance in a private dining room of the Hotel Bel-Air were powerful donors said to include Ronald Spogli, the venture capitalist and former ambassador to Italy under President George W. Bush; his business partner Bradford Freeman; and Riordan.

    The donors reportedly faced the hypothetical question: “If it was Donald Trump running against Hillary Clinton, who would you vote for?”

    The Hill reports:

    One version has it that most of the Republicans at the table put their hands up for Clinton.

  • CharlieSeattle

    Lol, Panicked donors have 3 more options.

    OPTION 3. ……….Jeb! can switch parties!

    Once Clinton is indicted and bows out, Jeb! can switch parties and run for the Democratic Presidential nomination.

    Republican RINO donors are ecstatic at that possibility!

    The best part is Jeb will not have to change any of his policy positions!

    Unlike Kasich, Rubio, Hillary or Bernie, Trump is ACTUALLY defending low wage jobs FOR black Americans FROM illegal aliens and the globalist scum.

    Obama and the Democratic Party DEPEND on stupid people to stay in power. However, as black unemployment stays bad, will they ever start to wise up?

    Stage left, enter 11-34 million illegal aliens, that can’t read or speak English, to be granted citizenship, vote democratic and take low wage jobs from black American’s.

    ……………..And ‘da blacks?… ‘dey will love him for it!

  • CharlieSeattle

    Trump has captured the the GOP base, the American people minus the globalist elites that left the GOP long ago. Good Riddance!

  • concerned educator

    I just lost all respect for Carson for selling his soul to the devil for a job in chump administration

    • Gnowark

      I just lost all respect for you, thinking he sold his soul by endorsing Trump (not that I ever had any respect for those that have no respect for anyone that disagree with them).

  • DOC

    Yass boss Iass for you. Your a good TOM.

    • Gnowark

      Is that the equivalent epithet when “racist” would make you seem even more foolish?

      • DOC

        You can say what you want he is sucking up to a man that did not speak well of him.

  • Frederic Charles Hilnbrand

    I am proud of Mr. Carson in standing with TRUMP for he is the best man there and has been since the start. You people who are against this need to put your heads back up your asses and continue to view things like Obama. Cruz sucks. TRUMP can’t be bought. They say all this bad stuff and he proves them wrong every time and you do not like him for being honest. I pray Carson joins his team as his VP so they can clean this mess up that the MONEY people continue to BUY our not so wonderful political children on the hill. I do not think you people have any idea of what is going on in Washington AND what Lord Obama has done and is doing to our country and it is people like you who probably want Hillary to win. This IS why our county is so screwed up thanks to people like you.

  • Richard Hennessy

    Carson & Rubio are the ones dividing the Republican party. The majority of Republicans don’t want Trump, and they are helping Trump to the nomination, from which he will lose to Clinton. Cruz is the only candidate that can hope to unite the Party and secure the Presidency, while Trump is doing his best to help Clinton to a win. Before Trump, the election was the Republican’s for the taking.

    • Phannesa

      You mea DISTRUSTED? Ted the liar?

      • Richard Hennessy

        No, I mean stand up against the Washington establishment, including Republican Senators, Ted.

  • Citizentobe

    I am extremely disappointed with Dr. Carson for his endorsement. I thought he was a reasonable, sensible, prudent and real conservative man. This country will have the potus it deserves…..pitifully Khillary Clinton.

  • Mynickelsworth

    I am very disappointed in the actions of Dr. Carson. He was NOT my favorite candidate, that Sen. Ted Cruz, but I am surprised that he would endorse a Egotistic Narcissist and Socialist. There is, in my estimation, little difference between Trump, Hillary and Obama except that the latter is Muslim.
    I seriously doubt that Mr. Trump has read or knows much of anything about what the Constitution says or that it it the Law of the Land. I know Carson was a bit more familiar with the document.
    The only true Constitutional Conservative in the act is Senator Cruz and probably the only hope of the survival of the Free Republic of the USA.

    • Phannesa

      Oh, get off your high chair!! cry baby!!

      • Frankdidit

        Hey Phannesa, As you can see from these libturds who haven’t the foggist idea what the hell they are talking about. I cannot find one republican who is not voting for Trump. I believe if some of these libturds would get off their respective asses and do some research, that just might understand why so many are in Favor of Trump.
