  • Why A Protest Vote For Trump Is Better Than Voting Third Party

    The Federalist ^ | October 17, 2016 | David Marcus
    ....................... My greatest fear in regard to the election, a Trump presidency, is not going happen. But my second greatest fear, a Clinton presidency, may well happen. As a voter in safe blue New York I can have no impact on the former—but I can use my vote to influence the latter. It is very possible that voting for Trump as a protest against Clinton is the best chance I have to stave off a Clinton administration that runs roughshod over the American people and points to us saying, “This is what you asked for.” I understand that maybe a...

    After criticizing Trump’s comments on the lewd video released last week, the 2012 nominee did not say who he would vote for, but said he thinks Trump has “maybe a 25% chance” of winning. In a new interview, Mitt Romney says that he criticized Donald Trump’s 2005 comments about women last week because they were “so over the line” that they demanded an answer. “I felt that I had to say something again to simply point out to the women of America, and to the men of America,” Romney said in a podcast interview with Ashcroft in America posted on...

    Outspending Trump 53:1 Prior to September, Hillary had already tried everything she could think of. She introduced herself, she re-introduced herself, she had a soft reboot, she re-re-introduced herself, and she still hadn’t managed to seal the deal with the American people. That meant there was only one thing left to do. When you’re a trainwreck candidate that no one wanted in the first place, you have no choice but to enact “The Jeb! Doctrine.” Hillary decided that cash would be enough to make you forget about the health concerns, the bad plans, her own achievement-free record, and the fact...

    Donald Trump should apologize for pushing the “unseemly” birther conspiracy regarding where President Barack Obama was born, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham indicated Tuesday. Trump last week explicitly acknowledged that Obama was born in the U.S., though he went on to blame Hillary Clinton for igniting the so-called “birther” controversy despite no evidence and refused to apologize for questioning the validity of the country's first black president. “I would apologize,” Graham, a frequent and colorful Trump critic, told Bloomberg Politics on Tuesday. “I think the whole movement was unseemly. I had a lot of distaste for it. No factual basis....

Kaepernick did not stand for the national anthem before the 49ers preseason game at Levi's Stadium, although the move went unnoticed by most at the time. reported the story more than an hour after the game, and no reporters asked Kaepernick about it following the 49ers 21-10 loss to the Packers.But Kaepernick's action prompted the 49ers to issue a statement acknowledging that he sat during the anthem, and defending...

    CLEVELAND, Ohio – John Kasich will return this month to New Hampshire, site of one of his brightest moments as a Republican presidential candidate earlier this year. The Ohio governor will be in the state Aug. 28-29 for a reunion with his supporters there and to campaign and raise money for GOP gubernatorial hopeful Chris Sununu. Sununu is competing in a September primary. His brother, former U.S. Sen. John E. Sununu, was one of the highest-profile surrogates for Kasich's unsuccessful White House bid. "It's been too many years since New Hampshire has had a Republican governor and Chris Sununu is...

    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....

    Call it a tipping point, a time of choosing or testing. Whatever you call it, it is clear that this election will have far-reaching consequences for both the Republican Party and our exceptional country. While he has no doubt tapped into the anxiety so prevalent in the United States today, I do not believe Donald Trump reflects the principles or inclusive legacy of the Republican Party. And I sincerely hope he doesn’t represent its future. As much as I reject Donald Trump as our party leader, he did not create the political culture of the United States on his own.

The 40-year-old actor and director, whose new film Argo is attracting Oscar buzz, admits to owning several guns which he keeps on hand at the $17.5 million mansion he shares with Jennifer, also 40, and their three young children in California's Pacific Palisades. Affleck said that after Jennifer’s stalker, Steven Burky, was arrested in December 2009, it ‘gave me a stronger sense of feeling protective about my family.' He told the Hollywood Reporter that he goes skeet...

    As NewsBuster Geoffrey Dickens has noted, Ben Affleck appeared on yesterday evening's edition of Hardball. And while it's true that the actor/director/Dem activist offered a generally innocuous analysis, he did manage to engage in a bit of religious bigotry. Affleck's foul foray arose in the course of his discussion of the way the various Republican candidates have dealt with the issue of evolution and creationism. Talk turned to the former governor of Arkansas. BEN AFFLECK: I think Huckabee actually framed his position in a much less dramatic way than had been made out. Which was he said it could...

When the host moved the discussion to what the panel thought of "the Democrats, you know, caving in on this Iraq spending bill," actor Ben Affleck went on a tirade about these "f***ing people," saying that the "Democrats live in fear of basically, you know, being called cowards" and of "looking like p***ies."

One would think that a committed constitutionalist like Cruz would be doing everything he can to prevent Hillary Clinton from becoming president. But even if Cruz isn’t willing to stand side-by-side with Trump to that end, he should at least be willing to do so for his...

    Sources now indicate Paul Ryan wants Hillary Clinton to be America’s next president, and is doing everything in his power to secure that very outcome. If that allows Hillary to nominate up to three more Supreme Court Justices and thus tilt the balance of power of the Court so it represents far-left, progressive views, so be it. The forty-six-year-old Paul Ryan doesn’t care because he has already been promised, and wishes to make certain, that he is the GOP’s 2020 nominee for president. And it’s not just the 2020 election cycle that is currently on the table. Powerful Republican insiders...

The 2012 Republican nominee, who has openly opposed Trump's candidacy, went further than he has before in outlining to CNN's Wolf Blitzer how the country's character would suffer in a Trump White House. Trump's rhetoric has caused even some other Republicans to label him a racist, and Romney said he would not be able to paper over his incendiary remarks.

    Facing a free-wheeling Trump, she is weighted down by tons of baggage. This year was supposed to be Hillary Clinton’s “turn,” after her humiliating loss in 2008 to Barack Obama. She has paid her dues as secretary of state for Obama. And the apparent Republican presidential nominee, Donald J.

Yet, Clinton’s campaign continues to be dismal, and is getting worse — to the point where the socialist Bernie Sanders polls better against Trump than does Hillary Clinton. How can that be?
