    As we start the General Election campaign leading to November 8th, we have the essentially binary choice between the unlikeliest GOP Candidate of Donald J Trump (5% possible) and the Washington Establishment Candidate, Hillary R Clinton, former First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State! Odds on favorite but that pesky Bernie refused to die!
  • Donald Trump’s RNC address could mark the start of an American revival

    07/22/2016 12:05:35 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 14 replies
    Donald Trump needed to give the speech of his life. He did that, and much more. He laid out an inspiring American Manifesto for our troubled times. And he did it his way. Not surprisingly, from start to finish, it is muscular and bold, leavened only by appeals to racial harmony and pledges of compassion for all. It offers a prominent nod to Bernie Sanders’ supporters in a bid to get some to jump the Democratic ship. Most important, it keeps faith with his campaign themes of putting forgotten Americans first. In contrasting his view with his opponent’s, the Republican...
  • Lindsey Graham calls on Trump to clarify NATO dedication statement

    U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham urged Donald Trump to clarify his position on defending European allies after a New York Times article quoted the GOP presidential nominee as not fully supportive of the NATO alliance treaty. “Statements like these make the world more dangerous and the United States less safe,” Graham, R-S.C., said this morning. “I can only imagine how our allies in NATO, particularly the Balkan states must feel after reading these comments from Mr. Trump,” Graham said. “I’m 100 percent certain how Russian President Putin feels – he’s a very happy man.” Trump, in a New York Times interview...
  • Kasich takes thinly-veiled swipe at Trump amid growing tensions

    Gov. John Kasich has been notably absent from the main events at the Republican National Convention being held in his home state of Ohio this week, and on Tuesday he took a thinly-veiled swipe at the presumptive nominee. Kasich seemed to offer a rebuttal of Donald Trump's campaign, rejecting what he called a "stew" of nationalism, isolationism, and anti-trade sentiments. "What does that stew look like? What does that mean for the world? What does it mean for stability, for peace, for relationships? I'm very concerned about it," the Ohio governor said during an address for the International Republican Institute....
  • Could John Kasich Dump Trump in Cleveland?

    Has John Kasich really left the race for the presidency? In recent days, the words and actions of the Republican Ohio governor and his political staff have made the question worth asking. In early April, Barron’s ran a cover story on Kasich, arguing that his “policy prescriptions, experience, and temperament make him the GOP’s best bet to reassure a nervous marketplace.” The Barron’s piece also pointed out that Kasich, unlike Trump and Ted Cruz, was handily beating Hillary Clinton in the polls. A month later, on May 4, Kasich “suspended” his race for the GOP nomination after it became clear...

    John Kasich suspended his run for president nearly two months ago, but his campaign is still arguing that he, and not Donald Trump, would be the best candidate to take on Hillary Clinton. On Wednesday, the Ohio governor's top political adviser trumpeted a new round of polls that showed Kasich besting Clinton in swing states — and showed Trump getting decimated. “Under a modeled electorate, Trump loses every swing state by 6-12 points. Governor Kasich wins 6 out of 7 swing states. Speaker Ryan wins 2 out of 7 swing states,” wrote John Weaver, Kasich’s former senior campaign adviser, in...

Ryan was asked by reporters numerous times about Trump’s recent conduct. Just this week, the presumptive Republican presidential...

    Monday saw many of Donald Trump's fellow Republicans express their displeasure at his comments about Judge Gonzalo Curiel, whom Trump says can't make an impartial ruling in a lawsuit involving Trump University because of his Mexican heritage. Newt Gingrich called his attacks "inexcusable," and Paul Ryan said the comments are "based on reasoning I don't relate to." But the GOP front-runner also received a rebuff from beyond the grave from one of the most important Republican figureheads of all time: Ronald Reagan. Okay, so Reagan didn't actually manifest to dissuade voters from supporting Trump — instead, his son Michael Reagan...

    A few minutes ago, I received a call from the Republican National Committee. I had stopped sending them money a while back, disgusted by their willingness to go along with the Obama agenda. The lady on the phone claimed to be a 76-year-old grandmother, and that the RNC needed the money to support Donald Trump and combat "crooked Hillary". It was a great pitch. I found my resolve slipping. I told her that she was a great salesperson, but that I would have to think it over with my friends at freerepublic. So, what is the best way to support...

Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, released a campaign ad Wednesday featuring a few former students praising Trump University.

Her reasons included Trump's plan to bar Muslims from entering the US, his call to step back from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and his negative comments about the UK government. "When you run for president of the United States, the entire world is listening and watching," said Clinton. “Based on the way he has behaved and how he has spoken and the policies he has thrown out there, I think it adds up to a...

Trump criticized his 2016 primary rival for breaking the pledge he signed last year vowing to support the eventual Republican nominee. “Jeb Bush dishonored his pledge. I mean he dishonored his pledge,” Trump said on the "Mike Gallagher Show" on Wednesday, as first reported by BuzzFeed News. “He signed a pledge, and, if you remember, they all wanted me to sign it, so I signed it. But that pledge is a guarantee, there’s no outs. It doesn’t say,...

While saying that he still cannot support Trump for president, Graham however said that he sees some good ideas in Trump’s proposals and believes the former reality television star could win the White House in November. But it won’t happen unless he changes the way he presents himself to the public, Graham added, because “crazy loses to crooked.”

    Donald Trump’s coronation as the GOP nominee will present plenty of opportunities for Republican amnesia and short-sightedness. The easiest thing to do, if you’re a conservative Republican, is to dismiss Trump as an aberration, as if his candidacy emerged out of a whirlwind. But that’s the work of revisionist historians, not honest observers of the last decade of Republican politics. Consider this recent tweet by Meghan McCain, the daughter of John McCain and now a commentator for Fox News: I hope history remembers those who gave up their conservative principles for the cult of personality and celebrity. And those who...

"He’s a formidable candidate — and a serious threat to our country," Pelosi said on behalf of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).

    Donald Trump missed a chance early in the presidential race to make inroads with independent female voters, but now the damage is done and analysts say the Republican front-runner likely can’t make amends with women he repulsed by spewing insults and sexist remarks. Republican presidential candidates have suffered a gender gap for decades, but Mr. Trump turned the gap into an abyss, which polls show will doom him to a sweeping loss in a general election matchup against Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. The real estate mogul fared worse than his two Republican rivals in theoretical matchups against Mrs. Clinton, largely...

    MOSCOW — Donald J. Trump, the leading Republican presidential candidate, was widely condemned when he called for the United States to “take out the families” of terrorists. His approach — even after he clarified that he was not talking about killing the relatives — was dismissed by many as immoral and unlawful. Yet, it is the very tactic that Russia has pursued for decades. It is the signature, though officially unacknowledged, policy behind Moscow’s counterinsurgency and counterterrorism strategies, and Russia’s actions in smashing a Muslim separatist rebellion in the Caucasus provide a laboratory for testing Mr. Trump’s ideas. The family...

    Is the media inciting violence against Donald Trump? Frank Chung THE media wants a member of the public to kill Donald Trump. That’s the view of a growing number of commentators, who have sounded warnings about the increasingly dangerous tone to media reporting around the Republican presidential hopeful. In a lengthy blog post, Scott Adams, the creator of the popular Dilbert comic strip, has slammed the media for “priming the public to try to kill Trump”, likening the conduct to the death of Princess Diana in 1997. The author recalled how a mere three months earlier, in his book The...

    There are some things to like about Trump. But, it looks to me like these are the possible outcomes with this guy: 1. He is truly a conservative leader, i.e. will appoint truly conservative judges, will stand against abortion and Planned Parenthood, against gay marriage (and for religious liberty), against any form of federally mandated healthcare, will balance the budget, and will defend the Constitution in total--and he will be elected President. 2. He is truly a conservative, but will lose to Hillary--primarily because his negatives are so SKY HIGH that millions will absolutely NEVER vote for Trump, including an...

But during the Nevada caucus on Tuesday night, Donald Trump gave us all one more giant reason to worry as he wracked up more votes than Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz combined. Trump won a staggering 46 percent of the votes cast in what was a ostensibly a five-man race, far more than his mid-30s peak in the previous three contests and in national polls. The Republican nomination does not yet belong to Trump: He has...

She is the hatchet girl for Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News to take down Donald Trump’s challenge of the establishment. She fancies herself a daring journalist, but hasn’t got the intellect to grasp the big picture, which is what is required to really be daring.

Then he went into depression, secluding himself for an uncharacteristically long time from twitter and the media. Working backwards, he skipped over bargaining and went straight to anger, blaming the media and their unfair treatment...

    The fear in both the GOP and Democratic party is visible at the surface when it comes to Trump, and it's not that he's any of what they've accused him of. No, it's really much simpler than that, and both Republican and Democrat parties, along with the mainstream media, are utterly terrified that you, the average American, is going to figure out what underlies all of these institutions in America.

    Washington - In the face of widespread criticism from across the political spectrum, Republican presidential frontrunner stuck to his guns over his controversial call to bar Muslims from entering the US.

Roosevelt's authorisation of the detention of Japanese, German and Italian immigrants during World War II as a precedent. "This is a president highly respected by all; he did the same thing," Trump told MSNBC Tuesday. The nation was...

    In a presidential campaign of mould-breaking idiosyncrasy, Donald Trump struck a rare conventional note this week when he paraded his wife and children before the American people two days before Thanksgiving. Introducing them at a rally in South Carolina, the billionaire property mogul and reality TV star announced: "I haven't done this yet. I brought my family, OK? I brought my family." His third wife, Melania, a former model from Slovenia who is 24 years his junior, spoke 16 words to the crowd. "Good evening. Isn't he the best? He will be the best president ever," she said. "We love...

Bowen Loftin, who both announced on Monday that they would step aside under pressure. "I think that when they resigned, they set something in motion that's gonna be a disaster for the next long...
