  • Ted Cruz just crushed Donald Trump in Washington State GOP delegates [dirty tricks]

    Washington State holds its Republican primary on Tuesday, and with one candidate left in the race, there's not too much drama about the outcome. But in a twist — and what would the 2016 race be without a twist? — 40 of Washington's 41 delegates selected Saturday to attend the Republican National Convention in July are Ted Cruz partisans. Cruz supporters outnumbered Donald Trump supporters at the state GOP convention in Pasco, and they were better organized, pushing through the Cruz slate of delegates over occasional protests from Trump backers, who noted repeatedly that Cruz is no longer in the...

    The Washington Post has more reporters digging up dirt on Donald Trump than it had covering World War II. The paper, in an unusual move, has assigned 20 reporters to look into "every phase" of Trump's colorful life, especially his New York real estate dealings, in an attempt to muddy him up. Most newspapers these days do not even have 20 reporters to cover a major city

"I have some concerns with him. He scares me to death; so does Hillary Clinton . There is no easy choice right now." Lee had previously endorsed Ted Cruz , before the Texas senator ended his presidential bid earlier this month. At the time, he said Cruz had a "proven record of fighting for our conservative values and for the issues that...

William Kristol, the longtime editor of the Weekly Standard magazine and a leading voice on the right, met privately with the 2012 nominee on Thursday afternoon to discuss the possibility of launching an independent bid, potentially with Romney as its standard-bearer. “He came...

    Donald Trump has used tweets to insult women and ethnic groups, and to drive news cycles over everything from his late-night TV choices to his midday food options. But he escalated his feud this morning with House Speaker Paul Ryan in a profound way, with implications and ramifications that extend far beyond November. “Paul Ryan said that I inherited something very special, the Republican Party,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Wrong, I didn't inherit it, I won it with millions of voters!” On a basic level, Trump is right. He stands now as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee because of millions...

    Speaker Paul D. Ryan, the nation’s highest-ranking elected Republican, said Thursday he was “not ready” to endorse Donald J. Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee. Mr. Ryan, who is also chairman of the Republican National Convention, has repeatedly said he would support his party’s nominee. But he has carved out some terrain to differentiate himself, by insisting that House Republicans write their own policy agenda this year and by giving speeches that at times criticized Mr. Trump’s views. Mr. Ryan said Republicans needed a “standard-bearer” who embodied the party’s standards. “I don’t want to underplay what he accomplished,” Mr. Ryan said...

The slots would go to delegates that were assigned to Marco Rubio, Jeb Busch, John Kasich, and Ted Cruz, even though Trump won 35 percent of the vote, according to a report in Politico.

On Thursday, Cruz sycophant admitted the VP choice was a “desperate move” and a “last call” to save the campaign.

The Ted Cruz super PAC ‘donated’ $500,000 to the Carly Fiorina super PAC, CARLY for America. A few articles popped up at the time, and the Federal Election Commission even issued a letter asking the Cruz super PAC to better explain what the donation was for. To be clear, a half a million...

    In addition to "grass-roots" campaign workers, there are at least eight Super PACs backed by 'shadow elites' who are driven to defeat Donald Trump and they are banking on Ted Cruz. At least one of these super PAC leaders, Katie Packer of OPP, met behind closed doors at the RNC Spring Meeting this week in Florida. Packer states that a republican candidate should "uphold orthodox GOP ideology." This smacks of irony given her past allegiance with Romney/Ryan and Ryan's inability to uphold GOP principles as Speaker of the House. The super PACs are calling, texting, emailing, lobbying, and all-out wining...

    Donald Trump may be the only Republican presidential candidate who can realistically hit the magic 1,237 number for the majority of delegates, but according to a senior Republican National Committee official that does not mean he will become the GOP presidential nominee. Curly Haugland, a longstanding RNC official and an unbound delegate from North Dakota who will be on the convention rules committee in July, told CNBC that attaining 1,237 during the primaries does not secure the nomination. "Even if Trump reaches the magic number of 1,237 the media and RNC are touting, that does not mean Trump is automatically...

    He won’t be alone. There is preliminary talk of Cruz assembling a high-profile team of GOP surrogates and bringing them to Indiana, according to sources familiar with the Cruz campaign’s internal deliberations. The goal would be to project unprecedented party unity against Trump with a roster of supporters that, in addition to familiar faces such as Walker and Carly Fiorina, could include Jeb Bush or even Mitt Romney. Is that what last night’s surprisingly upbeat Cruz speech was about? Sounding more like a traditional general-election candidate in order to encourage establishment Republicans to unite with him now?

    The Republican National Committee is expected to debate a proposal next week that would dramatically shift the balance of power at this summer’s convention — and impose a new rulebook for selecting the party's nominee. The proposal, which will top the agenda during a meeting of the Rules panel at the RNC’s annual spring meeting in Hollywood Beach, Fla., would fundamentally alter how the convention is conducted, further empowering the delegates to determine the course of the proceedings. It amounts to not just a changing of the rules but of the rulebook itself, with far-reaching implications, potentially impacting whether party...

    Local politicians and activists are apprehensive about the upcoming Republican convention in July. “The fight I hope to lead once we get to Cleveland is that the rules that we started with are the rules that we end with,” former State Rep. Joe Carr, a delegate for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, said. Carr was a Newt Gingrich delegate in 2012, when the RNC changed the requirements for winning the nomination. Prior to 2012, a nominee was required to have won a majority of delegates from at least five states to be on the ballot at the convention. Then, the GOP...

In his latest column for the Washington Post, Krauthammer said if Trump does not lock up the nomination before the convention — he has the most delegates but needs a majority — it is possible the party will coalesce around an alternative and the billionaire's supporters will walk away, leaving the party in shambles. "And if Trump loses out, a split is guaranteed," wrote Krauthammer. "In Trump's mind, he is a winner. Always. If...

    And then there’s this other guy named Paul Ryan. Over on Capitol Hill, far from the madding crowd of rallies and racehorses, the newest speaker of the House of Representatives has been quietly reinventing the Republican Party by creating a new governing template. snip With a jaundiced eye, one notes that Ryan’s pro-people template seems rather well-timed for a contested convention and perhaps for unifying the party given the divisiveness and repulsion posed by Trump and, almost equally, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.). Plainly, it would be dicey for party leaders to bypass Cruz or Kasich, but Cruz will lose in...

One of the nation’s best-wired Republicans, with an enviable prediction record for this cycle, sees a 60 percent chance of a convention deadlock and a 90 percent chance that delegates turn to Ryan — ergo, a 54 percent chance that Ryan, who’ll start the third week of July as chairman of the Republican National Convention, will end it as the nominee.

    There’s a race in the Republican Party happening far away from the hot media glare, one that doesn’t involve a candidate named Trump or Twitter fights or violent protests. In fact, you’ve probably never heard of most of the possible leading contenders. It’s the race to succeed Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, who’s expected to step down in January 2017 after a record six years. If Donald Trump or another Republican is elected president this fall, the chairman’s contest will probably be a moot point. It’s tradition for the president to handpick the chairman of his own party. and...

    Mitt Romney's reemergence this election cycle as a harsh critic of Donald Trump has been crippling for his favorability among Republican voters, a new poll shows. Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, is seen as favorable by just 28 percent of Republican primary voters, according to a Public Policy Polling survey released Tuesday. A startling 62 percent of Republican primary voters view him unfavorably, the poll found, and 10 percent said they were not sure. That net favorability of minus-34 percentage points is a dramatic drop from polling conducted prior to 2016. In January 2015, for example, Romney was seen...

The one thing I qualify — it’s like the qualifications you see on those ads you see for car dealerships. I think any of us who comment on this election have to qualify that almost every prediction’s been off, so it’s hard to predict anything,” Walker added. Walker’s own run...

    After the disgraceful conduct of the Republican establishment over the past few weeks, it is clear that Ted Cruz has become a pawn in their scheme to hold on to power. The feckless manner in which Willard Romney first endorsed Marco Rubio, then John Kasich and finally Ted Cruz shows that he and his co-conspirators have no core principles except gaining and holding onto power. The “little people” believe this bunch of quislings actually care about winning elections, when in fact they don’t. After all, they have already said they would vote for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. The endorsement...

    A super PAC that launched a smear ad on Melania Trump in Utah has been linked to former GOP presidential candidate and Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina.According to Breitbart, the Make America Awesome PAC, which ran the smear ad in Utah about Melania’s nude modeling, is run by political consultant Liz Mair.Unfortunately, Mair isn’t that bright. On Make America Awesome’s website, it tells potential donors, “If you would like to donate by mail, send checks to: Make America Awesome PO Box 26141 Alexandria, VA 22313.” Problem: P.O. Box 26141 is also the mailing address for Carly for America, the official organization...

    Ann Coulter is not happy with Donald Trump. “I am a little testy with our man right now,” Coulter said in an interview with political commentator, and fellow Trump supporter, Milo Yiannopoulos. A staunch and vociferous supporter of Trump’s presidential candidacy, Coulter admitted she was disturbed by Trump’s retweet of a picture suggesting Ted Cruz‘s wife is ugly, or at least not as beautiful his wife Melania, a former model. “Our candidate is mental. Do you realize our candidate is mental?” Coulter said. “It’s like constantly having to bail out your 16 year old son from prison.” Saying she’s been...

    The Ted Cruz cheating allegations are gaining more attention as more pieces of the puzzle fall together. On Mar. 25, a reputable reporter from the ‘Washington Times’ backed up the ‘National Enquirer’ claims, saying at least a few are ‘accurate’. This story keeps getting crazier! Following the National Enquirer’s shocking expose of a Ted Cruz, 45, sex scandal, Washington Times columnist Drew Johnson is saying that these outlandish claims are at least partially “accurate.” We have all the details, right here. There are always rumors in any presidential campaign, and often they include sex scandals and end up being completely...

    Why Donald Trump Is Poised To Win The Nomination And Lose The General Election, In One Poll By Philip Bump March 23 Not to get too far ahead of ourselves, but a new poll from Quinnipiac University suggests that the most likely outcome of this presidential race is the following: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump face off in the general election, and Hillary Clinton wins. Standard polling caveats apply, not the least of which is that the campaign hasn't started and that polls taken well in advance of an actual election are often not predictive. But reading this poll on...

    "Trump is not a strong general election candidate. He's showing surprising strength in the Republican primaries. But that's only 20 million people," said Murphy, who ran the $100 million Jeb Bush super PAC Right to Rise. "The regular election is 128 to 129 million people; different planet, not Trump friendly." Murphy told CNBC's "Squawk Box" he would not support for Trump, even if the billionaire were to get the GOP nomination. "Personally, I'd never vote for Donald Trump. I'll write in somebody better. But that's just me. The party will support him if he's the nominee."

    Republicans attending the Utah Election Caucuses on Tuesday were _each_ given hand-fulls of Ballots, "Vote as many times as you want" as shown in the photo above, allowing them to cast as many votes as they pleased! When the time came to place the ballots in a tin can for counting, people walked in the door with "absentee" ballots stuffing several at a time into the ballot box. ....

    Many Donald Trump supporters think he is a slam dunk to beat Hillary Clinton in the general election. The candidate himself certainly takes this view. But Trump's analysis of current public polls is preposterous. In the RealClearPolitics.com average of recent polls, Trump trails Clinton by 6 points, 47 to 41 percent. Ted Cruz, in contrast, leads Clinton 46 to 45 percent. Ex-candidate Marco Rubio and splinter candidate John Kasich have been running even better. All at least equal the 46 percent that is the lowest percentage won by either party's nominee this century. Against each of them Clinton falls short...

    That unity ticket would preferably include Sen. Ted Cruz, who is second behind Trump in the delegate count, and a presidential contender who dropped out already. But the group did not discount including someone not in the race like Paul Ryan or Mitt Romney. . . Still, the Club for Growth, has decided to continue on with its efforts to stop Trump. After an internal meeting Wednesday, the group decided to launch a $200,000 ad buy in Utah, which holds its primary Tuesday. . . "Going forward, looking at the numbers, we think it's still very possible to keep Trump...
