    I am, says Erick Erickson, and he's not alone. One of the chief coping mechanisms from righties on social media this weekend upon surveying the destruction in South Carolina was to swear they'll never be a Trumpist, even if the heavens fall. I believe Erickson, but I'd also bet cash money that 90 percent of the people saying "HELL NO NEVER HAPPEN" today will grudgingly come around over the next eight months upon being reminded, not on a daily but on an hourly basis, that Hillary Clinton is a pathological liar who'd be in prison if not for her status...

    Senator Ted Cruz, who is seeking the Republican nomination for president in 2016, said on Tuesday that he introduced legislation to give governors the ability to opt out of refugee resettlement programs. Cruz said that if President Barack Obama wanted to send refugees to any state, his legislation would let its governor refuse to participate, "to conclude that the federal government has not done a sufficient job ensuring that the safety and security of the citizens of the state will be protected." The comments came at a news conference with Greg Abbott, the Republican governor of Cruz's home state of...

    Like many conservatives and American workers, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said that the Republican establishment's embrace of amnesty for llegal immigrants is the one issue that is making her think about renouncing her ties to the GOP. Palin has always spoken for American workers who are pro-free markets and against the permanent political class. And amnesty, as Dave Brat said after he ousted House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) last week, is the biggest issue that divides the bipartisan Wall Street elites from Main Street. Palin, echoing the voice of blue-collar workers who sit at home when establishment "Wall...
  • Congratulations to Jim Robinson for His Political Sagacity Overwhelmingly Accurate

    The maelstrom of political controversy regarding Free Republic founder Jim Robinson and his attitude towards the then Republican presidential candidate front runner and odds-on favorite to win the nomination, as anointed by the msm as the weakest candidate in the Repuplican field, was one punctuated by severe criticism of Mr. Robinson for his uncompromising, vituperative take-no-prisoners stance towards the liberal bent, RINO candidate Mr. Romney,as unacceptable under any circumstances as Republican Party nominee in the 2012 presidential election. While his intensely vociferous stance against Mr. Romney surprised, confused, alienated many, the political rationale for the utter blanket rejection of Mr....

    Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said in an interview Sunday, when asked about the Tea Party protests, that the Obama administration is paying more attention to the deficit than the Bush administration did. Tea Partiers, the Obama administration is on your side. That's been the message from the White House over the past few days, as top officials dispute charges that Washington is on a spending binge and encourage conservative protesters to count their blessings. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, when asked about the Tea Party protests, said in an interview Sunday that the Obama administration is paying more attention to deficit...

    With the rise to enduring power of president Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal in 1933, a new type of Republican emerged in reaction to FDR's attractive and overawing power - the-me-too Republican. Until the election of president Reagan five decades later, these me-too Republicans supported, rather than opposed, Democratic Party policies, but claimed they would administer them better. Of course this led to a half-century of Democratic dominance of American government and politics.

    DAVENPORT, Iowa - Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday that if elected president he would end illegal immigration in as few as three years by employing the same police tactics he used to reduce the crime rate as New York mayor. "It can be done. It is not impossible," Giuliani told his audience at a town hall-style meeting. "You can do this, you can stop them at the border." Giuliani said he would boost the number of border security agents to 18,000 from the current 12,000, and build a fence along the U.S.-Mexico border with technological monitoring to reduce illegal immigration. He...

However, when Cho later returned to the classroom to inspect for signs of life among his victims, the surviving student struggled...

    Another acquaintance of Senator George Allen said Tuesday that she heard him use a racial slur in 1976, contradicting a statement he made Monday in an effort to tamp down similar accusations. Mr. Allens campaign manager, Dick Wadhams, called the account by the woman, Ellen G. Hawkins, another false accusation. Mr. Allen, a Virginia Republican whose re-election campaign has been knocked off balance by the accusations, said Monday that he did not remember ever using the term and that it is absolutely false that that was ever part of my vocabulary. Mrs. Hawkins, who described herself as a rural Virginia...

    Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi said on Sunday US officials have conveyed "contradictory and ambiguous" positions in their comments on Iran's nuclear activities. "Why is the United States not destroying its nuclear weapons if these are bad? Why does it not start a global campaign to destroy nuclear weapons? "We have repeatedly said that Iran does not seek nuclear weapons. The United States wants to propagate a public policy that has no clear end," the Iranian official stated, according to Irna. President Bush Asefi, moreover, said that US President George W. Bush has antagonized the Islamic world and "this...

    Washington- Senate Judiciary Committee member Mike DeWine, who was mentioned by Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid on Tuesday as a potential Supreme Court pick, doesn't anticipate being nominated. "I'm on the short list, just the wrong short list," he joked. DeWine, an Ohio Republican, compared the intense public kibitzing over Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's successor to "watching the speculation for the next pope." Because O'Connor was a swing vote in many cases, DeWine said, whoever fills her slot could shape the court for years to come. He said he plans to scrutinize case decisions and writings of whomever Bush selects...

    Well, they went and did it.The Republicans look like they will wimp out, not exercise the so-called Nuclear Option, and Harry Reid will PERMIT two judges to be approved and disapprove four others. Does anyone think for a second the Democrats won't "go nuclear" in a heartbeat if the roles were reversed?This seals the deal for me. I am a Republican no more. It seems it does not matter if I vote Republican anyways, all I get is more liberalism. I am a man without a political party. I am a conservative without a home.Between Bushes enthusiastic embrace of illegal...

    <p>You wrote in the Monday editorial "Bush's conservative support" that "the president showed why conservatives will support him in November: Because he is one of them." Unfortunately, he is not.</p> <p>Under President Bush, the Republican Party has become the party of big government. The government has grown bigger and bigger, with more agencies, bureaucracies and enforcement programs. This president and a Republican Congress have given us an 8.2 percent annual increase in discretionary domestic spending (that's non-defense, non-entitlement), far greater than anything during the Clinton administration or any other administration since Richard Nixon's. This administration has given us the largest new entitlement program in almost four decades. Mr. Bush has yet to veto a single spending bill.</p>

    Associated Press ATLANTA - John Edwards cautioned President Bush on Tuesday not to assume the race for the Democratic nomination is over as he worked to close his gap with front-runner John Kerry. "Not so fast George Bush. You don't get to decide who our nominee is," Edwards declared. The North Carolina senator's remarks, delivered at a rally in the Georgia Capitol, came a day after Bush made taunting references clearly aimed at Kerry in a speech to Republican governors. Edwards campaigned in Georgia, one of 10 states with primaries March 2, before heading to Texas - which holds its...

    The United States said on Thursday it would be a waste of time to challenge the way it was awarding contracts to rebuild Iraq, after Europe raised deep concerns. "There is a substantial basis for doing it the way we have done and I do not think that it is worth spending one's time challenging it," State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said. "There is a lot of work to do in Iraq. It is time to get on with that work," he told reporters. Brussels had said there were grounds for concern that companies based in the European Union were...
