The Trump-Ryan Feud and Intraparty Loyalty


The fast-eroding relationship between Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Donald Trump is about as friendly as the one which existed between Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany. Many have been quick to descry Ryan, who has seemingly gone through more positions on Trump than a ballerina, and other party members for disavowing the nominee so close to an ...

Should individual conscience or party loyalty rule at the voting booth?


Do individuals have the unequivocal right to express their opinion through the voting booth or do competing loyalties bind them to the interests of political and social organizations? In a pre-2016 America, rabid individualism seemingly would have led most citizens to assert their self-sovereignty by exercising conscience in the voting booth, but amidst the other disruptions to “politics as usual” ...

When you’re so outta touch with your voting base, this happens…

Eagle God Bless America

Love him or hate him, Donald Trump has listened to us average voters and is singing our tune. Whether he’s sincere, and possibly as frustrated as Washington, DC as the rest of us, remains to be seen. In the meantime, the RNC and GOP Establishment continue to stand around scratching their heads wondering how they’ve lost control. It’s really not ...

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. ...

Eagle- America Deserves Better

  The video by Project Veritas found at this link shows the massive vote fraud that occurred in the recent New Hampshire primary and reveals how useless voting really is due to the ease with which corrupt people can manipulate the numbers to achieve results favorable to their tyrannical agenda. Voter identification laws are decried as “racist” by those who ...

GOP establishment piles on Trump! Surprised?


First let me say I’m NOT a Trump supporter. I don’t really want to have to vote for him, but if you leave me choices like the self-absorbed, all-important, liar and cheat, her highness, “I can be bought” Hillary or “Feel the Bern” like a bad rash, let me give you everything that belongs to everyone else, Socialist Sanders, well ...

Wednesday night’s CNBC GOP debate was touted as economic-centric. It ended up being more about the moderators baiting the candidates with ridiculous and biased questions, such as John Harwood’s query to Mick Huckabee as to whether Donald Trump has the “moral authority” to lead the nation. But there needs to be some serious discussion of economics injected into the primaries beyond ...

Takeaway from the Second Debates: GOP is Personality, Not Ideology Centered

CNN debate stage

Within the first moments of Tuesday night’s prime time debate, Donald Trump had established his superiority. Not as a candidate whose viewpoint had validity because polling- a very constrained measure at best- suggest his message resonates with voters, but as a Stalin-esque dictator whose premier standing in the race made him final arbiter of all related matters. As he belittled ...

Trump-ettes, You Can’t Have It Both Ways

Donald Trump

A funny thing happened on the way to the “Forum,” the “guy who doesn’t back down,” the “fighter,” got his nose bloodied and his sycophants didn’t care for it one bit. If that sounds harsh, then let me borrow from the “fighter’s” own words. I don’t have time for political correctness. I also don’t have time for so-called Republicans and ...

Like Them or Not, They Do Know How to Message


Depending on the programs you watch on television – or the media avenue of your choice, it is hard not to have seen the commercials produced by the National Rifle Association (NRA). They are well crafted and thought provoking. In fact, if they didn’t include the final branding of the NRA in their closes, even the liberal Democrats amongst us ...

The Call of the RINO in Virginia and Mississippi

It would be a lot easier for conservatives to tolerate the sanctimony of Republicans In Name Only (RINOs) if they weren’t so hypocritical — or in the case of Mississippi RINOs — despicably hypocritical. ‘Moderate’ Republicans never tire of telling us conservative extremists how they are inclusive and ready to reach across the aisle to get things done. While we ...

John Boehner’s Incremental Amnesty Surrender Strategy

Mathematicians have long contended that if you give a million monkeys a million typewriters and an infinite amount of time, eventually the simians will produce the King James Bible. Maybe so, but why inflict such a difficult challenge from the get–go? It could severely damage monkey morale. I suggest assigning monkey scribes the task of producing the House GOP leadership’s ...
