    The Secret Service of Obama’s 7000 (SES)

    Feb17, 2017 Judge Jeanine called them Obama’s “LEFTOVERS”.  And, she said what the president has to do with it is make clear that he doesn’t play around either and prosecute them.

    Feb. 15,  2017 Wikileaked, Julian Assange wrote “Amazing battle for dominance is playing out between the elected us govt & the IC who consider themselves to be the ‘PERMANENT GOVERNMENT’,”.

    I CALL THEM OBAMA’S 7000 (SES) UNTOUCHABLES.

    THERE ARE STILL 300 UNTOUCHABLES  OBAMA’S LEFTOVERS  “SES” EMPLOYEES IN THE VETERAN’S ADMINISTRATION

    FOX NEWS FEB 21, 2017 5:45 AM: 

    I WAS SHOCKED WHEN I WATCHED PART OF A VERY BRIEF INTERVIEW WITH THE NEW SECRETARY OF THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS,  DR. DAVID J. SHULKIN.

    SHULKIN, AS A  “LEFTOVER” FROM THE OBAMA VA ADMINISTRATION,  DEFENDED THE “SES” UNFIRED, UNTOUCHABLE, BONUS COLLECTING,  EMPLOYEES IN THE VETERAN’S ADMINISTRATION, AS  MOSTLY GOOD GUYS (PEOPLE) AND HAD VIRTUALLY NOTHING TO SAY ABOUT THE WHISTLE BLOWERS.

    INDEED, SHULKIN IS YET ANOTHER  “LEFTOVER” FROM THE OBAMA VA ADMINISTRATION

    SHULKIN CURRENTLY SERVES AS UNDER SECRETARY FOR HEALTH AT THE VA IN THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, A POSITION THAT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR RUNNING THE VETERANS HEALTH ADMINISTRATION.

    THERE ARE STILL 300 UNTOUCHABLES  “SES” EMPLOYEES IN THE VETERAN’S ADMINISTRATION, THEY HAD THEIR (VA) SECRET SERVICE POLICY, THEY COOKED THE BOOKS, EVENTUALLY THEY WERE REPORTED BY WHISTLE BLOWERS, OVERALL THEY LET 300,000 VETERANS DIE FROM NEGLECT, THEY WERE UNTOUCHABLE,  NOT ONE OF THEM WAS  EVER FIRED OR PROSECUTED AND THEY RECEIVED BONUSES FOR DOING IT.

    A Patient Advocacy Program is in place at each VA health care facility to ensure that your concerns are addressed in a convenient and timely manner.

Each Patient Advocate is empowered to ensure that you receive the maximum benefits you are entitled to by law.
    Patient Advocates act as VA representatives to listen to any questions, problems, or special needs you may have. They will refer your concerns to the appropriate Medical Center staff for resolution and act on your behalf to assist in explaining your point of view. Patient Advocates can be reached through the nursing or support staff in any clinical area.

    ACCORDING TO THE APRIL 22, 2015  NEW YORK TIMESTHE ACTUAL NUMBER IS: ZERO.

    As the Times recalls, soon after the “Sixty heads rolled!” headlines were written, the Department of Veterans Affairs backpedaled and said that only 14 people had actually been removed. THAT WAS A LIE, TOO.

    AS SO OFTEN IN THE OBAMA YEARS, IT FELL TO A COMMITTEE OF CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS TO FLOG THE TRUTH OUT OF THE ADMINISTRATION, AND IT TOOK MONTHS OF EFFORT:

    The documents given this month to the House Committee on Veterans Affairs, which provided them to The New York Times, show

    THAT THE DEPARTMENT PUNISHED A TOTAL OF EIGHT OF ITS 280,000 EMPLOYEES FOR INVOLVEMENT IN THE SCANDAL.

    One was fired, one retired in lieu of termination, one’s termination is pending, and five were reprimanded or suspended for up to two months.

    The only person fired was the director of the Phoenix hospital, Sharon Helman, who technically was removed not for her role in the manipulation of waiting lists but for receiving “inappropriate gifts,” according to the department.

    In a statement released Wednesday night, the department did not dispute the numbers released by the committee, but said that more than 100 other employees were facing disciplinary action.

    VA still plagued by problems two years after scandal – Washington Times

    www.washingtontimes.com/…/3/va-still-plagued-by-problems-two-years-after-scand/

    Apr 3, 2016 –

    Two years after the scandal emerged over phony waiting lists for patients at the Department of Veterans Affairs facility in Phoenix, the department is still beset with problems ranging from fresh accusations of falsified waiting lists to a system-wide failure to discipline wrongdoing.

    “The VA is still struggling with a lack of accountability, an inability to properly manage a budget rapidly approaching $200 billion, and a failure to provide veterans with timely access to care and benefits,” said John Cooper, a spokesman for Concerned Veterans for America. “The VA is broken, and if we want veterans to be assured of a VA that works, we need to systemically reform it.”

    Employee discipline has become an embarrassment. Even in the rare cases where VA management does punish employees, the agency is being thwarted by union-backed civil service rules.

    For example, a VA employee in Puerto Rico was reinstated with back pay last month after she was fired upon being arrested for armed robbery. She pleaded guilty, but her union got her job back by arguing in a grievance that a VA manager at the facility is a registered sex offender and another VA hospital manager was once arrested for drunken driving and found in possession of pain pills.

    In Alexandria, Louisiana, a VA nursing assistant is still awaiting trial on manslaughter charges in the death of a 70-year-old Air Force veteran in 2013. Hospital officials initially called the veteran’s death an accident, but a coroner determined the veteran died from blunt force trauma to the head.

    DES MOINES, IA – If Donald Trump had any second thoughts about skipping the GOP debate, he certainly didn’t show it as he took the stage before a raucous crowd at Drake University on Thursday night to say that he had raised nearly $6 million for veterans in one day.

    For several days now, the pundits have pontificated about the damage that Trump’s decision could inflict on his campaign. But, comparing his crowd and the number of cameras to the Academy Awards, Trump waved off the notion that Iowans would see him as a sore loser.

    “We love our vets,” Trump said.

    “When you’re treated badly you have to stick up for your rights,” Trump added, alluding to his relationship with Fox. “And that’s what our country has to do.”

    “We have to stick up for our country when we’re being mistreated.”

    He added that Fox had been “extremely nice,” but it was too late. In an interview with CNN just before the rally, Trump said Fox News “apologized” to him for a mocking statement the television network issued.

    Clearly enjoying his evening away from the debate, Trump also told the audience what could be a secret weapon: his daughter Ivanka, who is pregnant. “Ivanka, I said, it would be so great if you had your baby in Iowa. It would be so great — I’d definitely win!”

    Also appearing with Trump were two men who didn’t make the prime-time debate, and the two most recent winners of the Iowa Caucuses: Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee.

    ‘Donald Trump isn’t scared of anything’

    Trump supporters who waited hours in the cold to see him roundly disputed the notion that he would see any attrition in his support in Iowa, where he has led in recent polls.

    In interviews, many voters here said the controversy was yet another example of Trump bucking the establishment — a trait that has endeared them to him from the beginning — and that they were proud of him standing up to Fox News.

    Ernie Ratcliffe, an army veteran who served two tours in Vietnam, drove in from Kansas City for the rally, scoffed when asked for his thoughts on Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s contention that Trump skipped the debate because he was afraid of taunts or difficult questions from the Fox moderators or rival candidates.

    “Donald Trump isn’t scared of anything. He’s not scared of absolutely anything,” said Ratcliffe, who has signed up with his wife to call New Hampshire voters on Trump’s behalf next week. “Donald J. Trump said he was going to do this and he’s done it. He’s a man of his word.”

    Ratcliffe said he was convinced that Trump was the only candidate who could clean up the Department of Veterans Affairs and that it would be “one of the first things he does when he gets into office.”

    “He’s going to get it squared away,” Ratlcliffe said. “It’s not going to take him very long to do it. He’s going to put the right people in. He knows how to manage things. He’s a very successful businessman. He’s going to get it done very quickly and very, very well.”

    Randal Thom, a former Marine who was among the first admitted to Trump’s event, said he loved it that Trump refused to back down.

    “When it came out yesterday that he was actually doing this (rally) in less than 24 hours, it was amazing,” Thom said. “It just shows he has the ability to rally and get things done.”

    Thom, who raises Alaskan Malamute and Pomalute puppies in Minnesota, and plans to spend Monday in Iowa volunteering for Trump, dismissed Cruz as “a Canadian born citizen” and described the Texas senator, as well as the other GOP contenders as “weak.”

    “Trump is a 100% strongman. He’s bullet proof,” Thom said. “People say, ‘Oh look at his background. Look at the number of wives he’s had.’ You know what? I don’t care about that. What I care about is his future.”

    The details of exactly how Trump plans to parcel out money to veterans groups as a result of the event remained unclear on Monday night. But said he gave $1 million to veterans.

    Inside the auditorium where Trump spoke, the campaign reserved special seating for veterans, many of them disabled, and Trump recognized them as he took the stage.

  • Word of Mouth to Mouth Resuscitation

    Word of Mouth to Mouth Resuscitation

    The act of reviving a person and returning them to consciousness.

    Donald Trump is doing this with his huge rally’s across America.

    Trump’s  “Word of Mouth to Mouth Resuscitation for America”  is reviving  patriotic, taxpaying, voting citizens and returning them  to the consciousness of when the citizens of America were prosperous, strong and free.

     I am just one (1) concerned American Grandmother, in a small county in WA State.

    I am supporting , campaigning and voting for Donald J. Trump for President of the United States

    As Theodore Roosevelt said….  Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

    I have a website, behindmyback.org

    And, I have a plan that works.

    Word of Mouth to Mouth Resuscitation of American”. It’s  having private one on one conversations with other concerned voting citizens about Trump. First, I identify myself as a Trump supporter, Trump signs in my yard, Trump bumper stickers on my car and my Trump hat. Anywhere people gather,  other concerned voting citizens come up to me and quietly ask questions about why I am supporting Trump.

    For me it’s an very easy question.

    1. I am a concerned American grandmother. I fear for the future of my ten grand-kids and great grand kids in the United States of America. They shall inherit the national debt of TWENTY TRILLION DOLLAR $20,000,000,000,000.00.
    2. When American citizens fear what their own government is going to do to them, it is unacceptable to me.
    3. When American’s citizen’s fear what immigrants are going to do to them in America, it is unacceptable to me.

    Who knew about this town?

    The anxiety in town is so high, according to Davis, that some in Twin Falls were scared to demonstrate in solidarity with the alleged Fawnbrook victim, fearing it would make them targets. “A lot of people are afraid of backlash from the migrant population coming after us for standing up for this one little girl,” Davis said

    1. Obama Veteran’s Administration was/is a killing field of greed and corruption

    As president of the U.S.A. Trump shall establish justice for American Veteran’s

    My support for Trump started when he skipped  the final GOP  primary debate  on  Jan 29, 2016 and spoke about Veterans.   I watched Trump’s passionate speech.  I watched news media coverage on how the VA had cooked the books on Veterans appointments and let (more or less) 40 American Veterans die waiting for medical treatment, so they could collect bonuses. Three were fired… And, they all collected their bonuses.

    1. I am a patriotic American Citizen.

    DONALD J. TRUMP IS A PATRIOTIC AMERICAN CITIZEN.

    WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES KNOW THE LAW OF OUR LAND IS THE U.S. CONSTITUTION.

    TRUMP IS THE LAW AND ORDER CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT

    WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES, IN ORDER TO FORM A MORE PERFECT UNION, ESTABLISH JUSTICE, INSURE DOMESTIC TRANQUILITY, PROVIDE FOR THE COMMON DEFENCE, PROMOTE THE GENERAL WELFARE, AND SECURE THE BLESSINGS OF LIBERTY TO OURSELVES AND OUR POSTERITY, DO ORDAIN AND ESTABLISH THIS CONSTITUTION FOR THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

    ————————————————–

    DONALD J. TRUMP  SHALL PROMOTE THE GENERAL WELFARE

    American Jobs, employment and wages,

    Trump calls it Globalization over Americanization, really bad global trade deals. COMPOUNDED BY…. illegal immigration creating stagnate wages for legal American’s, and forcing our Sovereign county into servitude under the global agenda of the United Nations..

    DONALD J. TRUMP  SHALL SECURE THE BLESSINGS OF LIBERTY TO OURSELVES

And, Legal American taxpaying citizen are paying for Social services for the multitude of all of the so called, vetted immigrants and of un-vetted illegal’s, including radical Islamic terrorists.

  • Arlington Cemetery Memorial Day May 30, 2016

    Arlington Cemetery Memorial Day May 30, 2016 (President Obama made a speech)

    HISTORY? Memorial Day, an American holiday observed on the last Monday of May, honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.

    SINCE 1868, ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY HAS BEEN THE FOCAL POINT OF NATIONAL MEMORIAL DAY COMMEMORATIONS.

    ARLINGTON IS THE ONLY NATIONAL CEMETERY TO HOLD SERVICEMEN FROM EVERY WAR IN U.S. HISTORY.

    ALTHOUGH THE FIRST MILITARY BURIAL AT ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY DIDN’T OCCUR UNTIL 1864,

    THE BURIAL GROUND HOLDS THE REMAINS OF THOSE WHO FOUGHT IN EVERY WAR SINCE THE REVOLUTION. IN 1892, SOLDIERS KILLED IN THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR WERE REINTERRED FROM A GEORGETOWN CEMETERY, AND CASUALTIES FROM THE WAR OF 1812 HAVE BEEN REBURIED AT ARLINGTON AS WELL.

    ON EVERY MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND SINCE 1948, TROOPS IN THE 3RD U.S. INFANTRY REGIMENT—THE ARMY’S OFFICIAL CEREMONIAL UNIT KNOWN AS THE “OLD GUARD”—HAVE PLACED SMALL AMERICAN FLAGS IN FRONT OF ALL OF ARLINGTON’S TOMBSTONES. EACH FLAG IS PLANTED PRECISELY ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF A GRAVE MARKER AND PERFECTLY CENTERED.

    Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) On military personnel

    Military personnel subject to combat in war often suffer mental and physical injuries, including depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, disease, injury, and death.

    In every war in which American soldiers have fought in, the chances of becoming a psychiatric casualty – of being debilitated for some period of time as a consequence of the stresses of military life – were greater than the chances of being killed by enemy fire.

    — No More Heroes, Richard Gabriel[28]

    During World War II, research conducted by US Army Brigadier General S.L.A. Marshall found that, on average, only 15% to 20% of American riflemen in WWII combat fired at the enemy.[16] In Civil War Collector’s Encyclopedia, F.A. Lord notes that of the 27,574 discarded muskets found on the Gettysburg battlefield, nearly 90% were loaded, with 12,000 loaded more than once and 6,000 loaded 3 to 10 times. These studies suggest that most military personnel resist firing their weapons in combat, that – as some theorists argue – human beings have an inherent resistance to killing their fellow human beings.[16] Swank and Marchand’s WWII study found that after sixty days of continuous combat, 98% of all surviving military personnel will become psychiatric casualties. Psychiatric casualties manifest themselves in fatigue cases, confusional states, conversion hysteria, anxiety, obsessional and compulsive states, and character disorders.[16]

    One-tenth of mobilised American men were hospitalised for mental disturbances between 1942 and 1945, and after thirty-five days of uninterrupted combat, 98% of them manifested psychiatric disturbances in varying degrees.

    — 14–18: Understanding the Great War, Stéphane Audoin-Rouzeau, Annette Becker[28]

    Additionally, it has been estimated that anywhere from 18% to 54% of Vietnam war veterans suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.[16]

    Based on 1860 census figures, 8% of all white American males aged 13 to 43 died in the American Civil War, including about 6% in the North and approximately 18% in the South.[47] The war remains the deadliest conflict in American history, resulting in the deaths of 620,000 military personnel. United States military casualties of war since 1775 have totaled over two million. Of the 60 million European military personnel who were mobilized in World War I, 8 million were killed, 7 million were permanently disabled, and 15 million were seriously injured.[48]

    It is estimated that between 1985 and 1994, 378,000 people per year died due to war.[52]

    Arlington National Cemetery: 8 Surprising Facts

    May 28, 2012 By Christopher Klein

    Since 1868, Arlington National Cemetery has been the focal point of national Memorial Day commemorations. As the United States honors its fallen military heroes, explore eight surprising facts about one of the most sacred pieces of ground in America.

    1. Arlington National Cemetery is located on Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s confiscated estate.
      Days after resigning from the U.S. Army on April 20, 1861, to take command of Virginian forces in the Civil War, Robert E. Lee left the Arlington estate where he had married Mary Lee and lived for 30 years. He would never return. After Virginia seceded from the Union on May 23, 1861, Union troops crossed the Potomac River from the national capital and occupied the 200-acre property and house that been built by George Washington Parke Custis, Mary’s father and the step-grandson of George Washington. After Mary Lee, confined to a wheelchair, sent a representative instead of appearing personally to pay a $92.07 tax bill, the government seized the property in 1864. With Washington, D.C., teeming with dead soldiers and out of burial space, Quartermaster General Montgomery C. Meigs formally proposed Arlington as the location of a new military cemetery. On May 13, 1864, 21-year-old Private William Christman of Pennsylvania, who had died of peritonitis, became the first military man buried at Arlington. To ensure the house would forever be uninhabitable for the Lees, Meigs directed graves to be placed as close to the mansion as possible, and in 1866 he ordered the remains of 2,111 unknown Civil War soldiers killed on battlefields near Washington, D.C., to be placed inside a vault in the Lees’ rose garden.
    2. A Supreme Court ruling in 1882 could have resulted in the exhumation of 17,000 graves.
      More than a decade after Lee’s death, the Supreme Court ruled that the U.S. government had seized his estate without due process and ordered it returned to his family in the same condition as when it was illegally confiscated. If followed, the ruling could have required the exhumation of all of Arlington’s dead, but instead Lee’s son officially sold the property to Congress for $150,000 in 1883.
    3. The cemetery hosted the first national Memorial Day commemoration in 1868.
      In 1868, General John A. Logan, commander-in-chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, officially proclaimed May 30 as Decoration Day “for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion.” The first national commemoration took place at Arlington on May 30, 1868, with General Ulysses S. Grant in attendance and General James Garfield as the featured speaker. Decoration Day was eventually renamed Memorial Day.
    4. Arlington is the only national cemetery to hold servicemen from every war in U.S. history.
      Although the first military burial at Arlington National Cemetery didn’t occur until 1864, the burial ground holds the remains of those who fought in every war since the Revolution. In 1892, soldiers killed in the Revolutionary War were reinterred from a Georgetown cemetery, and casualties from the War of 1812 have been reburied at Arlington as well.
    5. Three World War II enemy combatants are buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
      Scattered among America’s honored dead are two Italian prisoners of war and one German prisoner of war captured during World War II. The three enemy combatants died in captivity in the Washington, D.C., area, and the Geneva Conventions required proper burials. With Arlington being the closest national cemetery, the men were buried there. In total, there are approximately 60 foreign nationals interred in Arlington, most being allied servicemen who perished in air disasters that included American soldiers.
    6. Nearly 4,000 former slaves are buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
      After seizing Lee’s estate, the federal government set aside acreage to be a model community for emancipated, freed and fugitive slaves. Freedman’s Village included farmland, homes, a hospital, a school and a mess hall before shuttering in 1900. African-Americans who lived at the village were buried on the property, and their graves were incorporated into Section 27 of Arlington National Cemetery. Their headstones are inscribed with “citizen” or “civilian.”
    7. There may never be another addition to the Tomb of the Unknowns.
      Among the 5,000 unknowns entombed at Arlington are the unidentified remains of World War I, World War II and Korean War servicemen buried at the Tomb of the Unknowns. An unknown from the Vietnam War was entombed in 1984, but the remains were exhumed in 1998, positively identified by DNA testing as those of Air Force First Lieutenant Michael Joseph Blassie and reinterred at a military cemetery in Missouri. Advancements in DNA testing may mean that all future remains will be able to be positively identified and no future interments at the Tomb of the Unknowns will occur.
    8. Soldiers plant flags in front of every tombstone on Memorial Day weekend.
      On every Memorial Day weekend since 1948, troops in the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment—the Army’s official ceremonial unit known as the “Old Guard”—have placed small American flags in front of all of Arlington’s tombstones. Each flag is planted precisely one foot in front of a grave marker and perfectly centered. This year, 1,700 soldiers participated in the tradition known as “Flags-In.” They planted approximately 220,000 flags on the Thursday evening before Memorial Day, and they will be removed at the holiday’s conclusion.

    Hot Air

    Jun 6, 2014 – VA confirms additional 18 vets in Phoenix died in wait-list fraud … Whistleblowers claimed that 40 veterans died while stuck on paper lists as VA officials cooked the …..VA finally recognized that 17 veterans at least died while being kept out of the appointment system, and yesterday acting Secretary Sloan Gibson announced that 18 more had been identified — bringing the total to 35 confirmed

    Jun 6, 2014 – The announcement of the deaths came as senior senators reached agreement Thursday on the framework for a bipartisan bill making it easier for veterans to get health care outside VA hospitals and clinics.

    The 18 additional veterans who died were among 1,700 veterans identified in a report last week by the VA’s inspector general as being “at risk of being lost or forgotten.” The investigation also found broad and deep-seated problems with delays in patient care and manipulation of waiting lists throughout the sprawling VA health care system, which provides medical care to about 9 million veterans and family members.

    Jun 6, 2014 –A key provision of the deal, senior senators reached agreement  deal already approved by the House, would allow the VA secretary to clear out the department’s clotted bureaucracy by immediately firing or demoting senior officials tied to mismanaged or delayed medical care for veterans. And, gave the VA $500 million in unobligated spending

    Did you spot the flaw? The ability to seek outside care with VA coverage depends on wait times. Just who will be measuring those wait times? Don’t think for a moment that vets spending VA money in private-sector clinics and hospitals won’t produce pressure to block them from doing so, and one way to ensure that will be to insist that wait times aren’t a problem at the local VA. If bonuses incentivized this wait-list fraud, just wait until these incentives come into play.

    Veterans should have the unconditional ability to seek care for non-service-related illnesses and injuries wherever they please without asking a bureaucrat for a by-your-leave to do so. Real reform will include allowing for those choices, and anything short will be nothing more than a Band-Aid on a cancer.

    Jun 6, 2014 One whistleblower called the culture of the VA similar to that of a “crime syndicate.” These cases may end up establishing that this description may be more accurate than even the whistleblower knew.

    1 day ago – Jan. 28, 2016 Trump’s 32% showing is the strongest support any Republican has had in Iowa from this poll all cycle. The latest results from Monmouth …
    After a year of chatter, the political world has finally reached the point at which actual voters will express actual preferences in the presidential race in ways that will actually matter. The Iowa caucuses are four days away; the New Hampshire primary is 12 days away.

    On the eve of actual voting, polls can help offer valuable clues about late surges. Never mind what the results showed months ago; what matters now is whether a candidate is closing strong. Plenty of candidates have won Iowa, quickly overcoming significant deficits, and surveys from this stage in the process often let us know which candidates are making gains as voters make up their minds.

    So, where do things stand? Let’s start with the Hawkeye State, where there are two major new Republican surveys to consider. The new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll has the race shaping up this way:

    1. Donald Trump: 32% (up from 24% in early January)
    2. Ted Cruz: 25% (down from 28%)
    3. Marco Rubio: 18% (up from 13%)
    4. Ben Carson: 8% (down from 11%)

    Trump’s 32% showing is the strongest support any Republican has had in Iowa from this poll all cycle. The latest results from Monmouth University point in a similar direction.

    1. Donald Trump: 30% (up from 19% in December)
    2. Ted Cruz: 23% (down from 24%)
    3. Marco Rubio: 16% (up from 17%)
    4. Ben Carson: 10% (down from 13%)

    Note, in both of these cases, each of the remaining candidates was below 5%.

    It’s hard to say with confidence whether Trump voters intend to show up when it counts, and the lingering questions about the efficacy of the candidate’s on-the-ground operation matter, but if the polls are correct, there’s no question as to who’s favored to win on Monday night.

    But what about the New Hampshire race nine days later? The NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll also shows:

    1. Donald Trump: 31% (up from 30% in early January)
    2. Ted Cruz: 12% (up from 10%)
    3. John Kasich: 11% (up from 9%)
    3. Marco Rubio: 11% (down from 14%)
    5. Jeb Bush: 8% (down from 9%)
    6. Chris Christie: 7% (down from 12%)

    Note that Christie, who appeared to be on the upswing a month ago, is now losing steam down the stretch. Kasich’s credible showing also stands out: it follows a Boston Herald poll from earlier this week also showing him in third place.

    Just 11 days after New Hampshire is the first-in-the-South primary in South Carolina, where the NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll has the GOP race shaping up this way:

    1. Donald Trump: 36%
    2. Ted Cruz: 24%
    3. Marco Rubio: 14%
    4. Jeb Bush: 9%
    5. Ben Carson: 8%

    Finally, there’s a new Bloomberg Politics/Purple Strategies poll taking a look at the national landscape.

    1. Donald Trump: 34%
    2. Marco Rubio: 14%
    3. Ted Cruz: 12%
    4. Ben Carson: 9%
    5. Jeb Bush: 7%

    Taken together, it’s not hard to figure out which Republican candidate is in a dominant position. When was the last time a presidential hopeful was in this strong of a position, so late in the process, and failed? Never. It’s simply never happened.

    Either Donald Trump will be the GOP presidential nominee or we’ll soon witness the most spectacular collapse in American political history.

    Americans are pushing back against failed government, he said. “We’re doing something special. This is a movement—we are going to make our country great again.”
    “I don’t think we have to call it a silent majority anymore… they’re not silent,” Trump stated.
    Trump also rolled out a series of policy commitments.
    He said he’ll soon release his plan to rebuild the military after years of budget cuts. “We’re going to be building up our military,” he declared at the fundraiser for veterans, which was held on the World War II warship, which has played host to Franklin D. Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan, and President Bush Sr.
    “We’re going to make our military so big and so strong and so great,” he vowed. “It will be so powerful that I don’t think we’re ever going to have to use it. Nobody is going to mess with us.”
    Trump also promised to rebuild the Department of Veterans Affairs. “I am with the veterans one-hundred percent,” he vowed. Long waits at VA hospitals won’t happen if he’s president. “We’re going to create a whole new system, we’re going to take the system apart, and if they’re not doing the job, the veterans are going to go to private doctors, private hospitals, public hospitals. And we’re going to reimburse those doctors and those hospitals,” Trump explained, sketching his plan to improve veterans’ care.
    He promised a more successful foreign policy against Russia and Iran. “We’re going to have a president who’s respected by Putin, who’s respected by Iran,” Trump stated.
    He also promised a tougher line against Iran’s theocratic leader. “Obama and his people call him the Supreme Leader of Iran… Well, I’m not calling him the Supreme Leader.” Obama’s nuke agreement with Iran “is one of the dumbest deals,” and “one of the weakest contracts” he’s ever seen.
    He also vowed again to build a wall on the southern border and have Mexico pay for it.
    The other GOP candidates can’t make good deals, he said. “It’s an instinct. It’s something that’s special—they don’t have it.”
    JOEL ARENDS, THE PRESIDENT OF VETERANS FOR A STRONG AMERICA—THE ORGANIZATION THAT HOSTED THE EVENT—ANNOUNCED HIS GROUP’S ENDORSEMENT OF TRUMP. “2016 IS TOO IMPORTANT TO NOT TAKE A STAND,” ARENDS STATED. “NOW, IT’S TIME FOR US TO RETURN THE FAVOR FOR SOMEONE WHO WILL TAKE A STAND FOR US.”

    But it provided insight into why a variety of Republican primary voters have allied their support with Trump.
    “That’s why, when Trump talks, it may not be presented in a pristine, completely PC way,” one panelist said.
    “But we’ve been having that crap pushed to us for the past 40 years. Since Reagan. Quit worrying about being PC, hurting somebody’s feelings.”
    Many of the panelists expressed a variety of frustrations — with Washington as a whole, with Congress, and with their congressional leaders.
    At one point during the panel, one member said that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) and House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) were “acting like” Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California).
    The panelist said there was virtually no daylight between the parties.
    Luntz stopped her and asked the rest of the participants who agreed with the sentiment that McConnell and Boehner were “acting like” their Democratic counterparts. Only four panelists disagreed.
    “That doesn’t spell good news for the GOP,” Luntz said.
    “That’s why we want Trump!” another panelist exclaimed.
    Trump has surged in polls of the Republican presidential primary race since his entry into the field in June. He has built strong leads in national polls as well as in the early-voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire with a surprisingly large base of support.
    Two members of the focus group keyed in on the rising cost of entitlement programs and a continued increase in the US debt as reasons they were fed up.
    “I’m mad because people who are collecting my tax dollars are living as well as I am, because the tax rate is too high,” said one panelist, who described herself as a mother of two. “And at the end of the day, the middle-class has not much to show for it. It’s ridiculous. There are too many people collecting too much, and they’re living too well off of it. The handouts are out of control. The debt is out of control.”
    Added another panelist: “There are more net recipients of government programs now than there are putting in.”
    Speaking to reporters after the focus group, Luntz perhaps summed up best the appeal of Trump to these voters.
    “Donald Trump is punishment to a Republican elite that wasn’t listening to their grassroots,” he said.
