  • 2016 Americas Gift To Hillary - The Oval Office!

    Canada Free Press ^ | 05/04/16 | Dave Merrick
    Completely disjointed and impotent conservatives America is going to have a Democrat - specifically Hilary Clinton - for its next president. I sincerely hope Im wrong about this one - but Im not. What follows is why and embarrassingly devoid of anything close to rocket science. Four years ago the right caved. And its going to keep happening because none of what caused it last time has changed. The self-consumed GOP doesnt behave as though they understand the challenges they really face regarding capturing public support. Most of the problem is how they are perceived - and that is worsened...

    In the remaining primaries Bing is forecasting that Trump will lose one state Nebraska and if you look at the Bing polling for Nebraska Cruz is at 41.9% and Trump at 40.9%. Nebraska could go for Trump looking at how he is trending lately. Bing is projecting that Trump ends up with 1366 delegates not too far off from what the Trump people are forecasting at 1400.

Donald Trump is running for President and, if he wins, it will spark a global catastrophe or something. Honestly, were not entirely sure what she thinks is going to happen, and we dont really care. Shes deep in the tank for Hillary, so its a safe bet she harbors the same fears about anyone who would dare usurp her chosen queen. Because of her deep-seated fears, shes joined a growing list of Hollywood leftists who are incentivizing a Trump presidency by promising to leave...

    Media Relations ^ | 4/25/2016 | John Shevrin
    In a head-to-head matchup of each partys frontrunner, Mrs. Clinton leads Mr. Trump by only 3 percentage points nationally (46 to 43; 11 percent undecided). Comparatively, Mr. Sanders fares slightly better against Mr. Trump (51/40/10). The Republican Party has a strongly favorable political environment for winning the White House, said pollster Ed Goeas, president and CEO of The Tarrance Group. If a mainstream Republican candidate were the presumptive nominee, the GOP would likely be in a strong position for a lot of wins, top to bottom, in November.

    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat, will sign an order Friday restoring the voting rights of more than 200,000 felons in the state. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported that the unprecedented move will also allow felons living in Virginia to sit on a jury, serve in elected office, or become a notary. The order will effectively restore the civil rights of both nonviolent and violent felons who have served their time in prison and completed parole. According to the McAuliffe administration, the move will affect roughly 206,000 felons currently living in Virginia who have finished their prison sentences but not applied...

Comey told an Aspen Security Forum audience on Thursday that the FBI does not set timetables on any of its investigations.

    Bypassing the checks and balances imposed by America’s founders, the executive branch has come to new heights of power. Historians may look back on Jan. 14, 2014, as a tipping point in American history. On that day, President Barack Obama urged his cabinet to help him identify ways to advance economic recovery by circumventing the legislature. “We’re not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we’re providing Americans the kind of help they need,” the president told reporters before his cabinet meeting. “I’ve got a pen, and I’ve got a phone.

Usually, we point out the flaws in their beliefs, ridicule their terrible policies, and do our best to expose their incoherence. Not today. Today, we applaud their clarity. First, Hillary accused Bernie of campaigning on issues he doesnt understand and making promises he cant keep. She was pressed on whether Bernie is qualified. She didnt specifically say that she thought Sanders was unqualified, but she also refused to say that he was. Instead, she argued that the core issue of his...

Miller pointed out that Ted Cruz supported the Trans-Pacific Trade Deal that will cost the US millions of jobs. Cruz also pushed to expand Muslim immigration into America. This is despite the fact that Obama has issued 68o,000 green cards to immigrants from Muslim countries in the last five years. The Cruz amendment would have doubled the number of Muslim immigrants to America to up to 1.35 million. Steve Miller added, Why is it that...

He has no political ideology and could just as well govern to the left of Hillary Clinton as to the right of her. Yet his sloppy way of speaking has earned him equally sloppy, over-the-top analogies to Mussolini, Hitler, George Wallace, and a host of other populist and racist demagogues. But is he uniquely dangerous, ignorant, or cruel in terms of either distant or recent American...

They believe this man without much of a political platform (but with interesting hair) has neither the qualifications nor the temperament to be president. Yet in defiance of conventional wisdom, he is leading his three main rivals in the race for the...

The cases in those two states were dismissed on technical grounds. [Snip] Unlike the suits filed against Mr. Cruz in other states, the case in Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court resulted in a ruling...

Barring something cataclysmic coming out of the presidential primary contests throughout March, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are most likely now headed toward their national party's nomination. Until recently, a Trump nomination at the head of the Republican Party in 2016 is what Clinton's staff and political consultants had hoped for. Trump's high negatives mirror Clinton's in a general election meaning that party loyalty and voter turnout matter more than momentum or message. That, in theory, gives Clinton an edge. In every head-to-head national poll, Clinton tends to beat Trump by a few...

The billionaire tycoon’s huge win in Nevada, his third on the bounce, is by far the most significant and for three reasons which fully justify Trump’s claim to be ‘winning, winning, winning’.

    For the last several days, I’ve spent a lot of time spreading the following paragraph around the Internet: Donald Trump is a biblically-illiterate, adulterous, strip-club owning, casino magnate. He has been on every side of almost any political or moral issue you can imagine. Yeah, he's said some things that people like to hear, but what is there in his life that reveals that he will actually do what he says? He is "wise in his own eyes" and we should not be swayed by his cunning, craftiness, and deceitful scheming. Even the shallowest of political observers knows well that...

    For months, Donald Trump's antagonists in rival campaigns, in the GOP establishment and in the punditocracy have believed the time would come, someday, when Trump would say something so outrageous, so over-the-top, so out there that the scales would finally fall from his supporters' eyes and the Trump candidacy would collapse. The South Carolina campaign, some believed, would be that time.

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The more Democrats learn about Bernie Sanders, the more they appear to like him. A greater percentage of Democratic registered voters view the Vermont senator as likable, honest, competent and compassionate than they did just two months ago, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. Seventy-two percent now believe he could win the general election, a 21 percentage point increase from the last time the survey was conducted in December. The findings underscore the challenge facing Hillary Clinton as she enters the Democratic contest's pivotal spring stretch, when primaries across the country mean that many of the...
  • Bad news for Ted Cruz: his eligibility for president is going to court

    The problem: the meaning of "natural-born citizen" Here is what the Constitution says about who can be president: No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States. The problem is the Constitution doesn't define "natural born Citizen." Neither does any current law. And no one has...

    The Daily Caller ^ | February 18, 2016 | Alan Keyes
    The forces that now have a stranglehold on both the so-called “major” political Parties are determined to overthrow the Constitution, turning the United States into an oligarchic tyranny, affirmed periodically by sham votes, as in the erstwhile Soviet Union. I can’t support anything produced by their sham political process. It’s all calculated to produce a result fatal to rightful liberty. Only a true grassroots movement can restore constitutional self-government in the United States. The presidential election, as envisaged by the Constitution’s provisions, actually requires such a grassroots mobilization, focused on the election of presidential electors. These electors are supposed to...

    Hey there, honey. It's me, Cheryl. I just got the "save the date" announcement for your impending nuptials. Looks like you're planning on a November wedding. That will certainly be a beautiful time of year to get married, and I am glad to see you so excited and full of hope. You deserve some happiness. Here's the thing, though. I've been watching you with this guy Donald for a while now, and I'm concerned. I know how loudly he professes his love for you. He's taken you to some amazing parties and promised you an incredible future. After the way...

    self published on FR
    I have previously mentioned on FR that I support Senator Ted Cruz for president. But a close second best choice for me would be Donald Trump. Part of me hopes that the ticket is Trump-Cruz. That way, you're likely to get the strengths of both men in one package. But whatever happens in that regard, my main concern is that the Republican nominee would be both committed to, and able to effect, changes in three key areas -- foreign policy, respect for the constitution, and a change in the balance of American social and political discourse towards greater individual liberty...

    Since candidates first started throwing their hats in the ring for the Republican Presidential nomination, I have been cheering for Ted Cruz as my first choice. There were also a number of candidates whom I would gladly support against the Democratic challengers. I really liked the way Donald Trump was electrifying the electorate and he was near the top of my list. But that has changed. Trump is now at the bottom of my list. As I have watched Donald Trump's attacks on Ted Cruz in recent weeks, and especially those in the last few days leading up to the...
  • Trashing the 12th Amendment with the National Popular Vote

    Coach is Right ^ | 2/17/16 | Publius Huldah
    The compact for a National Popular Vote (NPV) is a destructive scheme. Yet it’s been approved by several States; and is pending in others. Since the text of the compact no longer seems to be set forth on the NPV website, we’ll look at the NPV bill now pending in Tennessee. In a nutshell, the compact seeks to evade the 12th Amendment to our Constitution (where the States elect the President); and substitutes a national popular vote where inhabitants of major metropolitan areas elect the President. The Constitution our Framers gave us The federal government created by our Constitution is...
