    Maya Dillard Smith, interim director of the Georgia chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, has resigned over the ACLU’s position on who can use which public restrooms. The resignation occurred after her two daughters were traumatized by encountering men in the women’s restroom. Dillard Smith explained: "I have shared my personal experience of having taken my elementary school age daughters into a women’s restroom when shortly after three transgender young adults, over six feet [tall] with deep voices, entered. My children were visibly frightened, concerned about their safety and left asking lots of questions for which I, like many...

  • Time is now for Trump to pick Rubio for VP

    First the reason the time now to pick Rubio is to beat Hillary to the punch with picking an hispanic. Second reason why. It locks up almost all of the southern states. Rubio did well in Virginia and will also help in Nevada. This leaves Ohio for Trump to win. It also helps him compete in Minnesota and New Mexico. This will allow Trump to put resources in the some of the Northeast states making Hillary compete in states they would not normally compete in. Some argue for a women to cancel out the woman card or a black American....

    Prevalence of homosexuality in men is stable throughout time since many carry the genes Around half of all heterosexual men and women potentially carry so-called homosexuality genes that are passed on from one generation to the next. This has helped homosexuality to be present among humans throughout history and in all cultures, even though homosexual men normally do not have many descendants who can directly inherit their genes. According to previous research, sexual orientation is influenced to a degree by genetic factors and is therefore heritable. Chaladze says this poses a problem from an evolutionary perspective, because homosexual men tend...

    PPP's new New York poll finds Donald Trump heading for a dominant victory in his home state, where he gets 51% to 25% for John Kasich and 20% for Ted Cruz. There had been some thought Cruz might have momentum after his big win in Wisconsin last week, but New Yorkers hate him. Even among Republicans just 35% see him favorably to 50% with an unfavorable opinion. Kasich has a narrowly positive favorability at 41/38, but the only candidate GOP voters in the state really like is Trump at 65/29.

Even Trump, who accumulated so much in his lifetime, had the advantage that few people enjoy. He had help with money and building experience from home. Ted Cruz's career has been equally successful especially considering the fact that he received little financial help from home and he has a father with no political experience or contacts. Cruz, with those disadvantages, received a Harvard education and rose to the position of a US Senator. Not...

    Ted Cruz’s loss in the Arizona primary Tuesday puts mathematics squarely on the side of Donald Trump in the race to capture the Republican presidential nomination, an ongoing state-by-state delegate allocation analysis by The Washington Times indicates. “Mr. Trump’s win in Arizona means Mr. Cruz must win 90 percent of the remaining delegates after March 22 to get to 1,237. The chance of this happening is equivalent to winning the Powerball lottery,” said former Republican National Committee Treasurer Randy Pullen, who was also the state party chairman in Arizona.

John McCain predicts. "They have him positioned to spring the upset," Kurt Davis, a GOP operative in Arizona, told The Hill. "They just have to deliver." According to Real Clear Politics, Trump is ahead of Cruz by 13 points in the state's polls, but in Arizona, Republicans on the ground say the race's margin is narrower, and Cruz could pull off the upset.

    Republicans’ latest, and possibly last, strategy to take down Donald Trump is about to be tested. Saturday’s set of GOP nominating contests lacks the hype accorded to Super Tuesday or the winner-take-all primaries on March 15. What it does have, however, is fully 155 delegates at stake — more than were doled out over the entire month of February. That makes Saturday, and days like it, critical to establishment Republicans’ plan to force Trump into a long, delegate-by-delegate slog that would deny him an outright majority. After days of open warfare against Trump by prominent party elders, as well as...

    I was thinking about the republican primary and asking myself, "if conservatism is the answer and Ted Cruz is an exemplar of conservatism, why is he not doing much better at the ballot box so far?"

For example, there are thousands of illegal aliens crossing the border with Mexico on a monthly basis. Trump's solution? Build a wall. This is not a new idea so Trump adds that...

  • Levin's complaints that Trump is attacking from the left using "Alinsky" tactics are silly [vanity]
