Five GOP Candidates: What Have We Learned?

The presidential field is narrowing. Not fast enough for some people. But we have seen a good bit of the candidates by now and can draw some conclusions about them and their supporters. Donald Trump has turned the race on its head by voicing what so many people are thinking, but perhaps are too intimidated to say out loud. His style is hyperbole. ...

Trump Tizzy in Virginia Long Before Primary

Orange Trump

The Virginia Republican Party has discovered it’s one thing to issue a political “Do Not Resuscitate” order and quite another to get it to stick. Back in September the State Central Committee decided to require all voters in the March 1st GOP primary to sign a pledge that states: “My signature below indicates that I am a Republican.” The idea ...

Libs Demanded A “Kennedy Seat” In The Senate, Think They’ll Accept A “Scalia Seat” On The S.C.?

Eagle-I willl not sit Eagle

The two-faced liberal filth running our nation are without shame. When it was a Republican president nearing the end of his term they insisted that he not be allowed to fill an open seat on the Supreme Court, but when it’s Obama nearing his final days as president, they say it’s not only normal and proper to fill an open ...

The US Senate Must Hold the Line

LEAD

With the passing of US Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia we stand at a very sober moment for our nation, a moment that finds the US Constitution – and the idea of constitutionality in general – in a very fragile state. With the make-up of the US Supreme Court existing on a razor’s edge between the conflicting ideologies of Progressivism ...

The Ninth Republican Debate (Or Was This Just Another Jerry Springer Show?)

On Saturday night the ninth Republican debate was held at the Peace Center in Greenville South Carolina, but as the title implies it might as well have been a Jerry Springer show with all the barbs and mudslinging going on between the candidates. The stinging attacks and barbs between Donald Trump, Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz became so hostile I ...

The invisible candidate

This year’s race for the GOP presidential nomination is the most interesting in recent memory. The grassroots cry for conservativism has been nearly swamped by a populist wave; Donald Trump’s savvy media manipulation captures a “YUGE” portion of media attention. Governors and experienced politicians have dropped out of the race early. More governors are likely to drop out in the weeks ahead. ...

Imagine the chaos if Clinton’s super delegates win her the primary regardless of popular vote

AP delegate count DNC

Woe the Democrat leadership if their plan to coronate the wicked witch of New York/Arkansas as queen is in controversy with popular vote. Bernie statistically tied the queen in Iowa and soundly crushed her in New Hampshire, so how is it that Clinton is leading Sanders in the count that matters – delegates. Back in August, I mentioned that Hillary ...

ogres are like onions

Well, the layered Ogre from New Jersey and her highness from HP have decided to suspend their campaigns – layers and all. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and former HP exec Carly Fiorina have dropped out of the hunt for the GOP nomination for president after ...

Republicans Debate in New Hampshire

sevenrep.candiodates

  A very hotly contested and animated debate between the remaining republican candidates was held Saturday night just ahead of Tuesday’s primary in New Hampshire. The debate was moderated by ABC anchors Martha Raddatz and David Muir who I felt were clearly in the democrat pocket. That’s because as a friend of mine recently said, “As you can see, the New ...

Cruz Doesn’t Know Timeline on Iowa Caucus Debacle

At Saturday night’s debate, Cruz apologized once again over his campaign’s actions during the Iowa Caucus.  However, once again he downplayed the incident by badly bungling the timeline.  It isn’t clear whether he is that misinformed or if he is trying to pull the wool over our eyes in order to excuse his campaign’s actions. Here is the timeline: 6:43 PM ...

Candidates demonizing campaign finance reform infantilize voters

alg-american-flag-money-jpg

With the Iowa caucus, electoral politics have made a rather splashy re-entrance to the public dialogue, and a familiar bogeyman has snuck in with it. Since the Supreme Court issued its decision in Citizens United v. FEC in 2010 politicians on the left and right have sought to curry easy electoral points by vilifying this victory for freedom of speech, ...

Jimmy Carter says he wants Trump to win

Jimmy Carter

Former President Jimmy Carter told the United Kingdom parliament that he would rather see Trump than Cruz as the GOP nominee. “The reason is, Trump has proven already that he is completely malleable. I don’t think he has any fixed opinion that he would fight for.” “If I had a choice of Republican nominees, between Cruz and Trump, I think I would ...
