    Pence was not my first choice. But I trust Trump's judgment. This is the official state song of Indiana. It would be nice if at Pence rallies we could great him and his family with sing-along to welcome him and his family with this beautiful song.

    WASHINGTON — A proposed amendment aimed at defunding a controversial Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulation related to Section 8 Housing was tabled in the upper chamber Thursday. Utah Sen. Mike Lee proposed an amendment to the Senate Transportation and HUD appropriations bill that would have defunded a regulation stopping the implementation of the HUD regulation known as Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH).

    From Senator Jeff Sessions: For the first time in a long time, this November will give Americans a clear choice on perhaps the most important issue facing our country and our civilization: whether we remain a nation-state that serves its own people, or whether we slide irrevocably toward a soulless globalism that treats humans as interchangeable widgets in the world market. In Donald Trump, we have a forceful advocate for America. Trump has said that our trade, immigration and foreign policies must be changed to protect the interests of American workers and our nation. In Hillary Clinton, we have a...

  • In his own words:Why Trump would not participate in Colorado or Wyoming

    YouTube ^ | April 17, 2016 | Donald J. Trump
    The "ground game" or whatever other euphemism it goes by consists of one thing: BRIBES. Bribes to party bosses and to delegates to circumvent the decision of the voters. Trump took the moral position that he was not going to participate in a rigged system of PURCHASING influence and delegates. Cruz DID not. (Cruz is more accustomed to SELLING influence than buying it, so I guess he gets a point for that.) "We didnt play in Colorado, because I heard that it was going to be for the bosses, the RNC, so Im not going to waste a lot of...

    Under regulations established in the 1980s, delegates cannot take money from corporations, labor unions, federal contractors or foreign nationals. But an individual donor is permitted to give a delegate unlimited sums to support his or her efforts to get selected to go to the convention, including money to defray the costs of travel and lodging.

    Self---rare vanity | April 12, 2016 | Self - rare vanity
    1. At the primary polling locations in each state, were the voters clearly informed that their vote for their candidate was for the FIRST VOTE AT THE CONVENTION only, and that if their candidate did not get 1237 delegates, their vote would be basically tossed and have no influence? 2. When we are told Cruz had the ground game, left people behind in the states after the primary, worked the rules, worked the system, worked the delegates in the way that everyone has always known it's done in the primaries... Cruz's people convinced Trump delegates to vote for Cruz when...

    The Conservative Treehouse ^ | April 11, 2016 | Sundance
    ... In the current climate of highly-charged political opinion, simple honest disclosures can avoid many of the inherent issues. Conversely, the refusal to present simple and honest disclosures increasingly implies there is an agenda behind the punditry. The modern era of almost instantaneous communication, along with exponentially more modern internet resources to find data at its origin, is creating increased cynicism and skepticism each time one of these hidden conflicts are dragged into the spotlight. A political pundit can lose credibility literally overnight. Those who derive their income from the delivery of information would be far better served doing everything...

    Media outlets such as National Review ("Conservatives Against Trump," 2/15/16) and conservative super-PACs have put bloggers and money behind the #NeverTrump campaign to what avail? Smearing the frontrunner and all his supporters 24/7 for the past ten months has not only cost hundreds of millions of dollars, but has divided the Republican Party. Now the RNC declares that the people who make up the party don't matter. Only those in leadership and on board with the plan to make sure Trump never sees the nomination have a right to speak.

    My local talk radio is at least NINE hours per day of Trump hate. Beck, Levin and a CNN contributor/local guy Ben Ferguson. I certainly can see talk show hosts being divided, perhaps even with a majority supporting globalism/establishment. BUT it is ALL TRUMP HATE/ALL THE TIME. I just wanted to know (from Trumpers, this is a Trumpers only thread): IS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH YOUR LOCAL TALK RADIO STATION(S) LIKE MINE? Does this unanimity seem a bit..coincidental? It all seemed to happen at one time. All their rants are INTERCHANGEABLE. Their rants are the same anti-Trump screeds you see online,...

    Now finally after Donald Trumps apotheosis, Americans are beginning to learn the truth. Factory workers in the old Soviet Union had a cynical joke: We pretend to work. They [the bosses] pretend to pay us. Similar logic applies in the world trading system. Washington pretends to write the rules; other nations pretend to obey them. For two generations already, increasingly pathetic American trade officials have turned a blind eye to the blatant barriers facing American exports in key foreign markets. The result has been a tragic roll-call of factory closures in the American heartland. The problem with free trade is...

    Economy In Crisis, INC (EconomyInCrisis.org) ^ | MARCH 13, 2016 | GEORGE BARLOW
    For almost two decades the U.S. has been living with the results of joining the World Trade Organization (WTO). The WTO is a self-serving and undemocratic organization that operates outside of our control. The U.S. Constitution states that all treaties made under the authority of the United States become supreme law of the land (Article VI). When our government signed the WTO treaty, unbeknownst to most Americans including our legislators our sovereignty was given away. What this means is that our laws, regulations and administrative procedures are now open to challenge.Why do we allow foreign individuals to dictate...

    [B]oth campaigns only released the top lines of the forms, not the complete documents, providing only a limited look at their finances. Democrats and some Republicans quickly pounced on Rubio and Cruz for the limited release. "Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are guilty of a stunning lack of disclosure, failing to meet the standard that even Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush adhered to in 2012, when he released his tax returns and making it impossible to complete a public accounting of deductions, exemptions, capital gains, household employees, corporate ownerships, and other important financial information," said Ben Ray, a spokesman for...

    On May 22, 2015, the Senate passed HR 1314, which was used as a legislative vehicle for trade legislation with the titles "Trade Act of 2015" and the "Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015," by a vote of 62-37. The bill proposed giving the president trade promotion authority (TPA). The bill also included a statement of trade priorities and provisions for trade adjustment assistance. Cruz voted with 47 other Republican senators to approve the bill.[22][23]

    For 2011 to 2014, Cruzs campaign released two pages of tax returns for each year. The documents, like those released earlier Saturday by fellow GOP contender Sen. Marco Rubio dont reveal many details like which tax breaks he claimed or how much he gave to charity. Rubio's returns were also scant on details.
