    Do you want to know what Donald Trump is really like? Back in Febuary of 2016 there was a Repuplican debate. The moderator was calling out the candidates' names at the start of the debate. When Ben Carson's name was called, he didn't hear it. So he just stood there in the wings. Cruz, Christie, and Bush, they all just walked passed Carson. But Trump understood what had happened, and he stood there right by Carson. That is the mark of a man!

    SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- A vote for Ben Carson in Tuesday's primary really didn't matter. Not only did Carson drop out of the race last month, he actively rejected his own votes. But that didn't stop thousands of people from checking the "Ben Carson" box on the ballot yesterday. In fact, Carson even beat U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz in one district.

    Former Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said Saturday that "we need to make some changes" to the nation's political system — possibly even abolishing the Electoral College — because it's a process "that's disregarding the will of the people." "One of the reasons that this is the year of the outsiders because people were so tired of the status quo and the rules that were arbitrary, created to advantage one group or another group," Carson, the retired pediatric neurosurgeon, told Uma Pemmaraju on Fox News. "Whatever happened to 'We are the people, the American people?' "The power has been served,"...

Conservative host Joyce Kaufman, a Trump supporter, suggested to Carson on Thursday that the bombastic GOP front-runner should shut down the account. "We talk about it and a number of people talked about it, including his family," Carson said. "And he knows that it's a problem. So, you know, the first part of solving the problem is recognizing that it exists." The Trump campaign did not immediately...

But the announcement will serve as an acknowledgment that Carson's...

    It appears that the media outlets have already begun to leak exit data about Super Tuesday results. It seems fairly predictable so far. In the same way, what will happen with the Trump and Cruz haters in the media is also predictable. They will deny any victories on the part of either man by comparing it to what some talking head thinks "should have happened". We know that that has been a big part of their playbook to date, and we know that Marco Rubio is their establishment guy. They will pull out all the stops tonight, because he appears...
