Trump Hires “Fixer” With Soviet Connections
Interestingly, Manafort’s former business partner is Roger Stone, a former adviser to Trump who now runs a pro-Trump Super PAC. He wrote a book, popular on Russian TV, insisting that President John F. Kennedy wasn’t killed by a communist conspiracy based in Moscow or Havana, but was murdered on orders from his vice-president, Lyndon B. Johnson.
It’s 75f, sunny, with 22mph winds in lovely Miami, Fla. Here are a few political headlines:
Following a rally in Jupiter, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, pulled Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields towards the ground when she asked The Donald his position on affirmative action,
I wasn’t called upon to ask a question during the televised press conference, but afterwards Trump wandered around, stopping at every reporter to take their questions. When he approached me, I asked him about his view on an aspect of affirmative action.
Trump acknowledged the question, but before he could answer I was jolted backwards. Someone had grabbed me tightly by the arm and yanked me down. I almost fell to the ground, but was able to maintain my balance. Nonetheless, I was shaken.
The Washington Post’s Ben Terris immediately remarked that it was Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, who aggressively tried to pull me to the ground. I quickly turned around and saw Lewandowski and Trump exiting the building together. No apology. No explanation for why he did this.
Lewandowski should be fired, right now.

Ted Cruz’s rally downtown was announced the day before and it was full to capacity. Carly Fiorina announced her endorsement
Mark Levin endorsed Cruz, too.
Bernie and Hillary took turns pandering to the Univision audience at Miami-Dade college, in a debate that featured pro-illegal immigration/open borders advocate Jorge Ramos, whose daughter works for the Hillary campaign. I have written in the past how Univision is not the way for the GOP to outreach Latinos. Holding a debate where the moderators won’t speak English does not sit well by me, either.
The Cruz South Florida Campaign is holding a pre-debate rally Thursday, March 10th @ 5pm
Bank United Center, University of Miami, 1245 Sauer Drive, Coral Gables, Fl. 33146. They’ll live-stream the GOP debate itself.
The Republican debate is scheduled to start at 8pm Eastern.
“Even with a brokered convention the Republican nominees must have won a majority of delegates in at least 8 states.” So, what’s next?
Read my post, Brokered vs. contested? Take down Rubio and Kasich.
A biblically illiterate, thrice-divorced, proud philanderer who incites violence in his rallies is the top runner in the Republican race. It is, indeed, Crazy season.

The news broke yesterday, that, as expected,
NEW: Pres. Obama to go to Cuba within the next month, sources tell @ABC News.
— ABC News (@ABC) February 18, 2016
Capitol Hill Cubans remind us that
During a December 2015 interview with Yahoo News, Obama stated that he would only travel to Cuba if he can meet with pro-democracy dissidents there. Such meetings should — at the very least — include internationally-recognized dissidents, such as Sakharov prize recipients, The Ladies in White and Guillermo Farinas; U.S. Presidential of Medal recipient Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet; Estado de Sats‘ Antonio Rodiles and former Amnesty International prisoner of conscience Jorge Luis Garcia Perez “Antunez”. Otherwise, Obama will have lied — again.
But the trip to Cuba may only be the beginning, folks. I fully expect Obama to cede Gitmo to the Castros. Ted Cruz touched on the subject last night,
And we need to have a president that stands up to our enemies, that doesn’t – you know, if you look at Cuba when the Soviet Union collapsed, they lost their major patron, their source of money.
But then what happened is Venezuela stepped in and became a patron. And you saw the oil revenues and actually Cuba had a corrupt bargain where they would send thugs, they would send soldiers down to Venezuela, that they would use to oppress the citizens there and in exchange Venezuela would send money.
Well, as oil prices have been tanking, Venezuela’s economy is in freefall. And suddenly Cuba was again on the ropes. The Castros were again on the ropes. And just like with Iran, the Obama administration steps in with a lifeline.
The CNN video cut off at that point,
but Cruz continued,
And I’ll tell you one of the things, Anderson, I’m very concerned about, is that Obama is emptying Guantanamo. He is releasing terrorists that our soldiers bled and died to capture.
And the next president is going to have to send soldiers out to capture them again or kill them when they return to waging jihad. And I fear that by the end of this year President Obama plans to give the Guantanamo Navy Base back to Cuba, which would be undermining U.S. national security interests profoundly.
I hope he doesn’t do that. But it is consistent with his pattern of the last seven years. I think it is a profound risk.
