Tomorrow evening, the Republican Reichsministry of propaganda, Faux Noise, will be subjecting the nation to what they call a debate, but is really a Cavalcade of Criminal Clowns. I intend to watch, so please keep me in your good wishes and prayers that I might survive the ordeal. The field is now divided between the Cavalcade Clowns and the excluded, banned from the stage, and effectively out of the race at the whim of Faux Noise.
Gov. John Kasich of Ohio is in and former Gov. Rick Perry of Texas is out of Fox News’s Republican debate on Thursday night in Cleveland, officials with the network said Tuesday, resolving the mystery of which lower-polling candidates would make the cut for the first debate of the 2016 presidential contest.
The network announced the 10 candidates who will have a podium spot for the main forum, which is expected to draw wide national viewership and give an invaluable platform to the candidates involved. The remaining seven will be part of an earlier forum airing at 5 p.m. that day.
Fox News’s “decision desk,” which does its election night calls, sifted through five national polls, including the network’s own survey released late Monday, to select the top 10 candidates for the debate based on the polling.
The others included in the lineup are Donald J. Trump, former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida, Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, Ben Carson, former Gov. Mike Huckabee of Arkansas and Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey…

I agree with her completely that the Republican party is off the rails. At this stage in the race, national polls are meaningless. Since seventeen are too many criminal clowns for one debate stage, the fair way to manage it would be to divide the field in half and hold two debates. If they say they can’t, because there are an odd number of clowns, they could put half of Chris Christie, aka PIGnocchio, in each debate.
Either the Republican Party leaders have decided that they wanted to cut down the field, are using Faux Noise as a political assassin, and are hiding their own complicity in this fraud, or the Republican Party leaders have lost their ability to influence events, leaving the party to be run by Rupert Murdoch and the Koch Brothers. Either way, that’s a disaster for decent Republicans.
Please remember that, when I refer to Republicans in my writing, I am referring the party leadership, the politicians, the pundits, and the rabid base. I fully realize there are many decent rank and file Republicans, who are Republican by tradition, and who have not paid too much attention to what their party has become. If you are one of them, I urge you to leave the Republican Party. They no longer represent you.
The Cavalcade of Criminal Clowns have one thing in common. If any one of them becomes President, they will destroy this nation.
