Walker cuts ’16 Run Short Takes Jabs at Trump

Madison, Wis. —Warning the GOP’s presidential race has become too nasty, Scott Walker suspended his 2016 campaign on Monday and called on some of his Republican rivals to do the same, citing an urgent need to “clear the field” to help defeat GOP front-runner Donald Trump. “Today, I believe that I am being called to lead by helping to clear the field in this race so that a positive conservative message can rise to the top of the field. With that in mind, I will suspend my campaign immediately,” Walker

                   Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other ShoeI return, from my week-long hiatus,  to share with all of you news from the Republican Primary field. Today, just moments ago, Gov. Scott Walker “suspended” his 2016 Presidential run! Now, as if that is not news enough, it is how he “suspended” his run that merited me awakening from my much needed rest. Rather than paraphrase  or beat around the bush, why don’t I just published what he said?

.

“Sadly, the debate taking place in the Republican party today is not focused on that optimistic view of America. Instead, it has drifted into personal attacks,” Walker said. “In the end, I believe that voters want to be for something and not against someone. Instead of talking about how bad things are, we want to hear about how we can make them better for everyone.”

.

“Personal attacks” Well, you don’t have to spell it out for me, or you, My Dear Shoevians, right? That was a left jab at Donald J. Trump and his brand of sophomoric personal insults and extremely negative campaigning style. Hence, my statement that Gov. Scott Walker took a jab at Trump on his way out of the campaign. Now, My Dear Shoevians, I couldn’t agree with Gov. Walker more, and that fact surprises me even more that what he said about Trump. It is about time that someone put the spotlight on Trump’s sophomoric and negative ‘style’ (and I use that word loosely) of campaigning.

.

To be honest, I never liked Gov. Walker… as a governor or as a Republican Presidential candidate, but today I gained a limited respect for the man. I do hope that other Republicans take his advice and drop out so that someone can give a more “positive”  campaign. The Republican Party deserves that, as does the American people!

.

Adieu!

Thank you!

‘The beginning of the end’: Inside Trump’s RedState meltdown | MSNBC

Trump at Saturday's Redstate Event

.

“ATLANTA – The conservative RedState Gathering began Thursday night with activists cheering wildly at a debate party as Donald Trump dismissed a question from Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly about misogynist rhetoric as “political correctness.”

Less than 36 hours later, the same audience erupted into applause and a few scatted boos Saturday as host Erick Erickson announced he had banned Trump from the event for suggesting Kelly was menstruating when she asked the question.

“I think he has disqualified himself,” Erickson told reporters, adding that the episode “probably is the beginning of the end” for Trump.

RELATED: Trump speech canceled over Megyn Kelly comments

If there’s one thing Trump has proved so far, it’s that nobody can predict what’s going to happen in the polls. But the political winds seemed to have changed here in Atlanta, where Trump wore out his welcome in an extremely short period with the hardline voters who should be his base.

To hear Erickson describe it, the Trump cancellation is the start of a broader exorcism for the conservative movement in which they must confront their snarling demons to find salvation the other side.

“I have emails from people referring to Megyn Kelly as a whore, I have emails from people referring to me as gay, I have emails referring to the president by the n-word and [saying] Donald trump is standing up to all of us,” he said onstage. “We will not gain the White House if we are not going to be happy warriors.”

Trump punished for Megyn Kelly attack
Msnbc’s Benjy Sarlin joins Alex Witt to explain the reasoning behind why Donald Trump was dis-invited to speak at the RedState gathering and how the GOP feels about this presidential candidate.

Language like this prompted whoops of approval Saturday, but it may have fallen flat even a day earlier. In over a dozen interviews before Trump’s feud with Kelly, RedState participants offered strikingly similar assessments of the billionaire populist. Nearly every attendee who talked to MSNBC praised Trump for channeling their anger at the status quo, for drawing attention to issues like illegal immigration, and – perhaps most of all – for giving establishment Republicans fits with his outrageous rhetoric. “

Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other ShoeI had promised myself to not cover Trump anymore. However, if it is his fall from grace, as we see here today, then I am quite happy to break with my promise. This article tells most of the story, although there is a part that has been omitted. During an interview, at the Redstate convention, Donald Trump answered a question about Megyn Kelly where he blamed her questioning of him (on Thursday) to a woman’s monthly reproductive cycle

.

I’ll let that sink in a for a few moments. It seems that Trump is the bully-on-the-playground of our national political contest. For me, there is no room for a bully in the White House or on the road to the White House. This should spell ultimate disaster, fro Trump, even for his most ardent supporters. However, we will see if Trump is made of Teflon.

.

Have a great weekend and, as always, if you have enjoyed your visit? Be sure to ‘Like’ and ‘Share’so that all your; family, friends, co-workers and acquaintances can know just where to come for all their ‘Trump’ news!

Adieu!

Thank you!

Trump offers no apologizes for McCain war record attack | MSNBC

Republican Presidential Candidates Address 2015 Family Leadership Summit

Republican Presidential Candidates Address 2015 Family Leadership Summit

.

“In a Sunday televised phone interview on ABC’s “This Week,” Trump was defiant about his comments the previous day. “I’m very disappointed in John McCain because the vets are horribly treated in this country. I’m fighting for the vets, I’ve done a lot for the vets,” Trump told host Martha Raddatz. “They’re treated like third class citizens. He’s done nothing to help the vets. And I will tell you they are living in hell.”

Trump claimed that “nobody was insulted” at the Family Leader Summit by his comments and that subsequent uproar was being generated by his 2016 GOP rivals “some of whom are registering 1% and 0” in the polls. He went on to blame McCain for instigating their public squabble because the Arizona senator had described some of his supporters as “crazies.” “And frankly, I think he owes them an apology,” Trump said.Trump’s attacks on McCain have resurrected criticism of his own history of military service, or lack thereof. When asked about a series of deferments he received during the Vietnam War, Trump said, “I had student deferments, like many other people had, during the war or around the time of the war. I had a minor medical deferment for feet, for a bone spur of the foot, which was minor. I was then entered into the draft because if I would have gotten a different number, I could have been drafted.”“I was fortunate, in a sense, because I was not a believer in the Vietnam War. That was another war that was a disaster for this country. Lives and money and it’s disgraceful what happened with the Vietnam War. I was not a fan of the Vietnam War,” he continued.

Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. Well, it is now Sunday, and for those of us that are of a political persuasion, it is time for the Sunday morning Political Talk Shows. On today’s edition of ‘This Week’ Donald Trump doubled down of his comments from Saturday at the ‘Family Leadership Summit’. Pushing Senator McCain even further claiming that the Senator “owes them an apology” for referring to some of McCain’s voters as “crazies”.As I have stated, time and time again, this kind of hyperbolic and hyper partisan rhetoric is not what the majority of Americans want to hear, want to witness, and will not vote for. I have no idea why Donald Trump keeps attacking the senior Senator from Arizona, but my guess is that he believes it will bolster his polling numbers and put distance from him and Jeb Bush. My two cents? I have a feeling that this just might backfire on Trump and force a further divide within the Republican party. With Republicans already fractured, this is not what the RNC or Republican mainstream candidates want.

.

As always, My Dear Shoevians, I will keep tabs on this situation and keep you all informed. Have a great Sunday, and a wonderful end to this beautiful weekend!

.

Adieu!

Thank You!

The Rebirth and Re-Launch of The Other Shoe

Author/Editor Danny Hanning in Rolling Hills Estates February 2015

Author/Editor Danny Hanning in Rolling Hills Estates February 2015

.

                     Welcome back My Dear Readers Shoevians to The Other Shoe. This article is my first written work in, well, many months. The world just keeps moving, as it did during my hiatus. Just recently I lost my best friend and constant companion, Alexander R. Hanning. His passing shook me to my very core and left me reeling for days. Alexander had a stroke March 27th, 2015. For the next two weeks I kept him at my side, cared for his every need and fed him Ensure and baby food.

.

He really wanted to hang in there, to stay at his Daddy Daniel’s side, for as long as possible. I will talk more about Alexander, his life’s work, and his end struggle later this week in my homage. This coming Sunday I hope to publish a final ‘Sunday Funnies – Homage to Alexander R. Hanning’. I will share his final videos, which remain unpublished, his final images and the time we spent together prior to his passing. Alexander was; a source of strength, a genuine friend, an inspiration and my muse for many works. His role in my upcoming works ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia’ will be greatly expanded due to his larger-than-life role in my real life.

.

After much soul searching and discussions with Allen, I have brought my battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma to an end. I have put my oncologist on the backburner and scheduled my next office visit for October. For all of you, My Dearest Shoevians, which have not faced cancer, the battle takes everything out of your life. We lost thousands of dollars of potential income, right at our birthdays, our 27th anniversary, and the Holiday season. Time, events, and treasure I will never regain, and is sorely lost.

.

Writing this, just now, I am seeing (for the first time) my level of personal loss. Oh, don’t get me wrong… I have known my loss. My lost income, my lost time and my loss of life and love. It is just, well… writing about it here, today, brings me face-to-face with my losses. Today, I end one of these losses by returning to writing and publishing here at The Other Shoe.

.

Now, My Dearest Shoevians, I am going to be completely honest upfront. I will not be capable of producing the amount of content, articles, here at the beginning. First, I am going to undertake a search for a new ‘look’ for the blog. The site at Word Press will remain the same for the time being. So, this change will just take place at the Blog.com location. I am looking to rekindle the Shoevians that were/are my regular readers. However, I am looking to expand my readership with any/all means possible. What you can look forward to?

.

You can look forward to; ‘The Mars Report’, ‘Lost in Space’, Sunday Funnies’ (changed due to the loss of Alexander R. Hanning), A Week in Review’ and “News From around the World’. I have several new article series that I plan on rolling out, over the next several weeks. Of course politics and the upcoming Presidential election will be featured over the coming months. For those that think they ‘know’ who I will write in favor and who I will choose to trash? “You don’t know!”

.

This is a very important election for many reasons. The most important for our nation is Income Inequality! The candidate that (honestly) champions genuine income redistribution (as suggested by Pope Francis) will curry my favor. We, Americans/America, are deeply entrenched in an “economy of exclusion”[1]. Pope Francis, recently, m et with executives from United Nations Agencies, Funds and Programmes. Here is an excerpt from their discussions:

.

“Future Sustainable Development Goals must therefore be formulated and carried out with generosity and courage, so that they can have a real impact on the structural causes of poverty and hunger, attain more substantial results in protecting the environment, ensure dignified and productive labor for all, and provide appropriate protection for the family, which is an essential element in sustainable human and social development. Specifically, this involves challenging all forms of injustice and resisting the “economy of exclusion”, the “throwaway culture” and the “culture of death” which nowadays sadly risk becoming passively accepted.”[2]

.

I strongly feel that, regardless of your political leaning, income inequalitypovertyrampant hunger among CHILDREN in America… and the repeated financial attacks (by Congressional Republicans) on; Food Stamps, Social Security Benefits, Social Security Disability Benefits, Veterans Benefits, Homeless Veterans Benefits, and like programs. America must belly-up to the table and honestly discuss the obvious attack(s) on the; poor, seniors, and the disabled.

.

So, My Dear Shoevians, I am publishing this article today (April 13, 2015) as a precursor to the rebirth and Re-Launch of The Other Shoe! I will not shy away form the issues of our time. I will not pull any punches, and I will do my level best to DOCUMENT every fact and factoid I will share over the months and years to come. As always, I put honesty above popularity and the credibility of my blog above traffic reports.

.

So, if you are just looking for some one0sided political fodder for your Facebook postings? The Other Shoe is not your place to read. However, if you have grown tired of obvious fodder and pandering. If you are not just another rhetoric parrot then, maybe… just maybe The Other Shoe is the place for you.

.

I look forward to seeing you all here as I work (hard) to return The Other Shoe to its former glory, and traffic. I just know that these ‘times’ will give me fodder. I am just hoping that my health, my strength and my resolve can match the intensity of these times.

.

Thank you!

.

Adieu!
