The Republican Party Has Spent $0 On TV Ads For Trump After Spending $42 Million For Romney In 2012

With so much stacked against him, can Donald Trump pull off a miracle and actually win this election? Right at this moment, things are looking quite grim for the Trump campaign. Following the release of the lewd audio tape, six women have come forward and have accused him of doing the exact sorts of things that he admitted to on that tape, and the mainstream media is going after him with all they’ve got. Of course the Clintons have done far worse things than Trump has, and that is the case that Trump must make to the American people in the last 25 days of this election. But it certainly isn’t helping that Trump is receiving very little help from his own party. In fact, earlier today Politico published an article entitled “RNC TV ad spending for Trump: $0” which documented the fact that the Republican National Committee has not spent a single penny on television advertising for Trump so far in 2016.


If the Republican National Committee had treated past candidates similarly, this wouldn’t be an issue. But as Politico has pointed out, that definitely is not the case…

In 2004, the committee spent $18.2 million on independent expenditures — or IEs, in campaign parlance — boosting George W. Bush’s reelection bid. In 2008, the RNC’s IE spending surged to $53.5 million in support of John McCain’s campaign against Barack Obama. And in 2012, the RNC spent $42.4 million on IEs boosting Mitt Romney or opposing President Obama — with nearly 80 percent of the spending occurring before mid-October.

By contrast, this cycle the RNC has spent only $321,000 on independent expenditures attacking Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. And all of that spending occurred last fall — before Trump had emerged as the leader for the GOP presidential nomination.

This revelation comes at a time when the Trump campaign is in full-blown crisis mode.

Since the second debate, six different women have come forward with allegations that Trump either groped them or kissed them against their will. The following summary of these allegations comes from the Daily Mail

Temple Taggert, who competed as Miss Utah in the 1997 Miss USA pageant claims that Trump kissed her on the lips against her will.

Cassandra Searles, who served as Miss Washington in the 2013 pageant, claims that Trump ‘grabbed her a**’ and invited her back to his hotel room during the competition.

Natasha Stoynoff was interviewing Trump at Mar-a-Lago back in 2005 when she claims that Trump began ‘forcing his tongue down [her] throat.’

Mindy McGillivray claims she was also at Mar-a-Lago when she was groped by Trump.

Rachel Crooks claims Trump kissed her on the lips against her will in 2005, and Jessica Leeds alleged that Trump sexually assaulted her on a plane three decades ago.

Are these allegations true?

I don’t know. But it is certainly alarming that so many women have come forward and that their stories are so similar.

The one man that knows the truth about all of these claims is Donald Trump, and so far Trump is vehemently denying all of the accusations…

“The phony story in the failing @nytimes is a TOTAL FABRICATION. Written by same people as last discredited story on woman. WATCH!” Trump tweeted Thursday morning.

He then went on a rant during his afternoon rally in West Palm Beach, Florida, reading off a teleprompter as he claimed, “these were nothing more than false smears,” “these claims are all fabricated,” and “these events never, ever happened.”

Trump attacked the integrity of his female accusers, saying “You take a look at these people…and you’ll understand also.”

Meanwhile, the Trump campaign intends to highlight the crimes of the Clintons as much as they can as we approach election day. In particular, they plan to make a big issue out of the fact that Bill Clinton is a serial sexual predator

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign signaled Wednesday its strategy for combating allegations of sexual misconduct against the Republican nominee: fight fire with fire.

More specifically, the campaign reportedly said it would seek to paint former President Bill Clinton “as Bill Cosby,” the same day multiple women accused Trump of making unwanted sexual advances toward them.

The Trump campaign is promising to unveil some new accusers of Bill Clinton that have never been revealed before, and the National Enquirer is reporting that the Clinton campaign is scared to death that some of Hillary’s sexual scandals may be exposed to the public as well.

At this point, most Americans are not really pleased with either candidate. Over these last several weeks, Trump will be trying to show how evil Clinton is, and Clinton will be trying to show how evil Trump is.

But Hillary Clinton has the full power of the mainstream media working for her, and so that is a massive advantage.

And the most recent polls in key battleground states have very good news for Clinton. The following comes from CNN

A trio of state polls released this week show Hillary Clinton’s northern “blue wall” holding, as she carries commanding leads across a series of key states.

The polls — taken after the release of a 2005 recording of Donald Trump talking in a sexually aggressive manner about women — show Clinton leading in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.

Coupled with Democrats’ advantage in the Electoral College, the slate of polls suggests that only an extremely narrow path to the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency remains for Trump, who has staked his candidacy in part on flipping some traditionally Democratic states.

Right now Clinton is ahead of Trump by 7 points in Wisconsin, by 9 points in Pennsylvania, and by 11 points in Michigan.

If Trump plans to pull off a miracle, he has a whole lot of work to do.

And it certainly was not encouraging to hear that Trump has decided to pull out of Virginia in order to devote resources to other states.

Traditionally Virginia has been a key swing state, and so many are taking that as a very bad sign.

If you look at the electoral map, it is very, very difficult to see a path to victory for the Trump campaign at this point. I know that is not what a lot of people want to hear, but it is the truth.

Trump could still prove me wrong by pulling off a historic miracle in November, but with each passing day that is looking less and less likely.

  • David

    You are so right Michael. Trump has not only the entire democratic party and MSM excluding Fox News and at least 1/2 of the Republican party against him it will be an absolute miracle if he wins. I wish him well against almost impossible odds.

  • im4truth4all

    I reject any allegations against any candidate a few weeks before an election unless significant evidence can be presented.
    Billy Boys allegations go back decades. The whole thing sounds like a fraud.

  • Jim Clark

    Trump is on his third marriage, two of them to furriners. Bill and Hillary have the romantic story of two greedy amoral sociopaths finding mutual benefits in being hitched.

    • Jason

      And Bill Clinton has a son by a prostitute. Hillary is thought to have had Chelsea by Webb Hubbell.

      • Brad

        Spurious accusations, both. And neither is supported by DNA testing.

        Trump will always be the bigger loser, no matter the contest.

        • paintballer

          Looks like someone arrived from the corporate media lol!

        • Paul Patriot

          Bigger “loser” than the lying, cheating, socialist, facist hitlery, who has a proven record of deception and supports the murder of babies and supports the confusion that the lgbt community is shoving down our throats with the bathroom nonsense……all in the name of “equal rights”

          I guess you don’t have any daughters…..

          How do you arrive at such an irrational conclusion????????

  • Paul Patriot

    Why? Because it is part of the plan to get hitlery in……actually, I would even go as far to say, God will allow hitlery in, to finalize and improve on the “transformation of Amerika” that will destroy our Constitution, our sovereignty, and set the stage for Amerika to be grafted into the global system.

    I say God is allowing this, because of our rebellion against him, and the church failing to stand up to the depravity, atrocities, and God rejecting legislation that has been shoved down our throats over the past 60 years. You know, prayer kicked out, ten commandments kicked out, abortion legalized, the lgbt circus, the cancer of political correctness that will lead to Christian persecution in Amerika that this nation has never known, etc, etc.

    Apathy, comfort, materialism, hedonism, greed,immorality, etc have destroyed this nation, just as it has other nations in history.

    I submit to you, hitlery will be the next potus, and she will destroy everything that has made America great, and this may very likely be a form of judgement from God.

    No, it is not coincidence that this election is so blatantly obvious as far as the attack on Trump.

    Amerika is asking for a certain kind of “king” and Amerika will have its wishes granted, and get such a “king”…..and you, me, our children and grandchildren will suffer the consequences.

    The time to repent and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ is TODAY!!!

    • K

      Trump with all his flaws, would be better for the Country. Hillary, is what this Country deserves.I agree, God is going to start allowing this Country, to get some of what it deserves.

    • TheLulzWarrior

      Do you really need God to tell you that all these things shpuld not be tolerated?

      • Paul Patriot

        But of course???????? Read Romans Chapter 7 . Or what Jesus said concerning lusting after a woman as being equal as adultery. Yet, most men dont see anything wrong with lusting after bikini clad woman at the beach…….as long as you dont touch, they say. According to Jesus they are deceived, and do not know what the holy absolutes of right and wrong are, unless Gods standard tells them.

        I sense a bit of sarcasm in your question. Its kind of ironic that you would ask such a question because when I look around the world today, it would seem as though no one really knows what is right or wrong just on the sheer fact of what is being accepted today.
        Look at the upside down things are today…..right is wrong and wrong is right, and tell me how that is working out for us without a moral law giver who has created absolutes.

        One of many examples would be the dog and pony show called LGBT and the whole bathroom/shower battle. Many folks dont seem to “see” the problem of a man (who identifies as a woman) (how convenient) using the same shower room and changing room and bathroom as a female. If you think that is acceptable, then please seek counseling.

        So, it would appear in that one example above that there is a percentage of the population that is blind and just doesn’t get it, so, therefore, to answer your question…YES, we as human beings DO need our Creator to tell us what should not be tolerated according to HIS Holy law and expectations.

          Get a life, pp, a real one, on this earth, helping people and not telling them what to do.

          • chevy fan

            Laws involving how one dresses and lgbt persecution is one of the main tenets of Christian and Muslim societies.

    • rosemerry

      Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel, and christian extremists are just as bad as others.

  • JB

    The fix is in. The globalist establishment needs to finish off the middle class and get them in line to be dependent and enslaved like everyone else at the bottom of the pyramid and the Donald appears to be standing in the way of that, so now they’re bringing all their weapons online.

    • iris

      Yep. They must have planned to bring all of this about, full bore, sooner than we expected. Trump is their little glitch. This is how close we are to the one world government, economy and religion, prophesied for the Tribulation period in Daniel and Revelation.

  • greanfinisher .

    Of course the RNC isn’t spending anything on Trump as it’s plowing a king’s ransom into the Clinton TV ads.

  • Biblelover

    What New Testament Bible verse would help me decide who to vote for? Should I vote for either of those two wicked people?

    • Paul Patriot

      Hard to pick one verse, better to look at the principles, and separate and rate candidates on how they have voted and talk about abortion, homosexuality, self defense, education, sovereignty, immigration, spending, whether they esteem Israel, and how they view and esteem Christianity, and how they feel moral absolutes(Gods moral laws and commandments) should play a role in law and order and thwe justice system.

      Remember hitlery hates Christianity, and is anti self defense, and has made it very clear that she loves the lgbt and abortion lifestyles.

      • iris

        Yes. Speaking of education, found out today, that in the public elementary system, in a new mathematics program, the student doesn’t need to come up with the right answer to the problem, only has to be able to retrace their steps as to how they came up with their answer. 2+2 doesn’t necessarily equal 4 anymore, folks! Incredible. All part of the pc indoctrination, that reality isn’t necessarily reality, but only what one thinks it is or wants it to be.

        • Brad

          Where’d you find that out? Was it a reputable source? Specifically where did you find that out?

          • Paul Patriot

            Let me pipe in if I may. The reputable source is right in front of your eyes, on the school curriculums, in the text books and in the class rooms is openly described as Common Core.

            Looking closer, you will see leftist, liberal propaganda being “taught” in the schools, along with a heavy dose of revisionist history, throw in a steady diet of the “intolerant” religion of Christianity, all the while praising the “religion of peace” and shoving the 7 pillars of Islam down our children’s throats…..I could go on and on, but if you want to find the “source” and know how to think for yourself, you will find the Truth.

        • Paul Patriot

          I believe that may be “Common Core” which spells disaster for the futures of our precious children, and long term damage to our nation.

    • guest

      Hillary successfully defended a child rapist and beater and later laughed about it knowing he was guilty.

    • shot injured eunuch

      The Clintons murdered something like 110 people and the witch wants to blanket America in Muslim extremists.
      She wants higher taxes.

    • 21Grams

      Look at King Cyrus. He was King of Persia, pagan, and yet God anointed him and was used him to the benefit of his people.

  • Scot Wm

    Can underdog Donald Trump defeat the corrupt Clinton political crime syndicate in the 2016 presidential campaign? Something like that happened in 1948. The election of Thomas E. Dewey as president was announced by the corporate media as a sure thing. But the American people didn’t fall for this and elected underdog Harry S Truman. It ain’t over ’til it’s over.

    • iris

      We didn’t have electronic voting machines back then, though. Still, hope every single American who can,
      gets out and votes. They’ll at least know that we’re not falling for it. Trump is a question in some respects, but we know for sure what to expect with Hillary, and the prospect is scary.

    • TheLulzWarrior

      Gloria Allred is involved, that says it all!

      • MEP325

        Who is Gloria Allred? Why is she significant? I’ve never heard of her until a day ago

        • Randall Trout

          Famous, slimy lawyer who represents money-grubbing women with false sexual harassment charges. She is good at it though.

  • Scot Wm

    I can’t help but wonder if Donald Trump’s eleven year old, sexually-explicit “locker room” recording is the only October surprise we will see. If The Donald has new, serious criminal charges he can use against the Clintons, he better use them soon.

  • SantosGarcia

    Pray that this Prophecy come true in the imminent election:

  • SantosGarcia

    The most controversial and mind-blowing political campaign in the history of our American Constitutional Republic… GET OUT THE VOTE!

    Remember this when Trump is in the Oval Office- the media, BOTH the DEMs & the GOP, and the Clinton Crime Machine will be radically overhauled and prosecuted before the Law… PRAY with passion… AND:

    Cannot speak for all of the United States of America. But in my neighborhood God is still on the throne. The churches on Sunday and usually Wednesday or Thursday are full here.
    That does not mean that hypocrites are missing. They are everywhere.
    It means in this neighborhood a whole lot of people worship God and a whole lot keep his son Jesus as part of that worship.
    We have five different denominations having free meals to anyone that wants to come at least once and sometimes twice a month and it is run from the congregations with volunteers. We have something called a Master’s Closet in which free clothing is given out to anyone that needs it. This neighborhood belongs to God.
    As far as I know, we do not abide by abortion period.
    I am not saying we are righteous. No one person is perfect like God is perfect. But a genuine effort is made to worship our God.
    WE are not alone. Our neighboring neighborhoods also do this.
    There will come a time when this country might be brought to its knees and that time is probably not that far off.
    If Trump loses, he should get down on his knees and thank God for such a small favor.
    Because whomever is in charge of this country in the next year is in for a huge surprise. Possibly coming from any one of many sources.
    As crooked as the establishment is, as bad as they might get, the candidate that wins really loses.
    Hillary could last 8 years. Or 4. Or 3 months. Depending a whole lot on how much actual time she has left before her health fails completely.
    Then we have to deal with her Vice President. And from what I have seen in the debates, this man loves to side step issues. He loves to pull the wool over people’s eyes. He is a typical politician and it shows.
    Trump will have to grow into the job.
    He isn’t exactly an ideal candidate. He does do things on the spur of the moment and that hurts. He does have an excellent Vice Presidential candidate and if he chooses his team wisely he will be a good president.
    IF he gets that chance.
    I predict that something is going to change everything within the next few weeks before the election and he does have an excellent chance of winning. Provided he gets on his knees and prays a lot. Probably not going to happen.
    IF he accepts Christ as his Lord and Savior he still might win despite everything going against him.
    What do you call a man like Trump in 2005? I call him a victim of something quite common in divorce cases. It is called Crazy Time and a lot of people have gone through it after a divorce, expecially if they loved the person divorcing them.
    This is part of a grief process. And judging by what I have seen in Trump’s case it was a double grief process in that he had a woman besides his wife that was with child or had recently had his child.
    It was a time in his life when the entire world appeared to be failing him. So yes, I know what he was going through and how tormented it made his life and his soul.
    When you are saved by Jesus Christ then all that changes. Everything about your life is likely to change. Including the likelyhood of becoming President of this Country.
    This change can take years before it is completed. The rewards of that change are self-evident and dramatic.
    Right now, losing this race for President might be the best possible thing that could happen to Donald Trump.

    • iris

      I’m glad your neighborhood is as it is, DJohn1. It looks like they actually get it.

  • USA_objector

    Wow, Michael, you believe the crooked media polls? You know the MSM will stop at nothing to pretend Hillary is ahead so the election can be stolen through Diebold machines. Trump routinely draws 20,000 people to his rallies, Hillary draws less than 100. This is purely a media fabrication, a hoax.

    • iris

      Agree. “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain”. There are 5 different electronic voting machine companies, on contract with the majority of the states. One or more of the companies are employed by each of these states, and they all utilize GEMS. Votes are being fractionated. One person’s vote counts for maybe 1/3 of a vote, another person’s vote can count for multiple full votes. Very crooked. Trump knows this, yet has enough nerve to push on. Perhaps that is smoke and mirrors as well, but we still should vote. To roll over or be apathetic about it shouldn’t be an option.

  • iris

    Thanks and agree, Paul. I think that was actually the second time I had heard that, and you’re right, it was being mentioned in connection to Common Core. What you’ve said is confirmation. Pretty sure our education system now ranks even more poorly than when I heard a couple of years ago, that it was rated 17th. For our wealth and taxes, that number is unacceptable. The highest ups in our education system are the ones getting amazing amounts of money, and have become yes men for the federal education guidelines, while the teachers themselves continue to eek out a living, but the kids are the ones who are really suffering. The unions are making things worse. The last thing the government wants to do is help out homeschooling systems, because the outcomes are so much more successful, and that would mean loss of revenue and loss of social engineering capability. They absolutely do not want children to think independently, question, think critically and logically. They don’t want them to have reading/writing skills, math skills or know history, only to go with the flow.

  • Richard

    I hope you are as wrong about the election, Michael, as you were last year about the imminent implosion of the economy/market…

    Who needs ads when Trump has YUUUGE publicity in every media outlet and has had it for months.

    The little ppl of both parties are wizzed off as never before. Things will NEVER be the same after the election, not by a long shot. The little r’s are furious and ppl this mad NEVER forget who get em mad.
