    Presumably Hillary's hack of voter rolls, mentioned as one of the original crimes in Monicagate House Prosecutor David Schippers' "Sellout", will be fed into her enemies list. So that anyone who voted against her will be kept track of.The first item of legislation in the new, Clinton-Castro administration should be, that anyone on Her Eminence's enemies list will have freedom from being hacked by: China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Pakistan's ISI, former Saddaam Bathist officer shadow puppetmaster ISIS, Cuba, Venezuela, Bangladesh, MexiCartel, BLM (not bureau of land management).

    Those who really want to win an election should make it a practice to listen to the demands of the people who will be voting. The opinions of voters regarding what to do about the tens of thousands of illegal alien children who have slithered into our country isnt hard to discern. Nevertheless, we have come to expect that our wishes will be pushed aside in deference to those of the Chamber of Commerce. We dont want illegal aliens to be allowed to stay in our country. We dont want amnesty granted to these people. We want them kicked out....

    Unruly voters have elected an opportunistic showman as their presidential nominee. They were aided by infiltrators in the primary who were not even Republicans. The nominee, Donald Trump, is a reality star billionaire real estate developer who has a history of vacillating political allegiances. He even made campaign donations to the most evil countess of the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton, who is designed to be her partys nominee against Mr. Trump.

    A recent poll in West Virginia finds Republican Donald Trump with a large lead over Democrat Hillary Clinton. The numbers are 57/ 30 in favor of Trump. They show the continuing shift of Party preference in West Virginia and open the possibility of a very serious problem for Clinton. While it is true that even the hapless Mitt Romney beat Barack Obama in West Virginia in 2012 by 62/35, the data that should be very worrisome for Clinton is the 13 points of Undecided found in the poll. The 57/30 spread favoring Trump gives him a growth potential for hitting...

    If you want Donald Trump to win the Republican nomination and win in November, merely sitting around hoping and praying is not enough. Nevertheless, Trump is self-funded so he doesnt need our money. He has no direct ties to any outside PACs so we cant confidently contribute to any such group either. What to do to help Trump to victory becomes a real question. In 2010 in Staten Island a group of volunteers working to take back a Congressional seat from a Democrat incumbent decided that walking door to door was a waste of time and energy. We found that...

    Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ^ | 4-6-16 | Craig Gilbert
    It was predicted to be huge and historic. But it was bigger than that. Wisconsin's turnout rate in Tuesday's presidential primary exceeded the states own bullish forecast, topped any Wisconsin primary since 1972, and easily bested that of any state that has voted this year except for New Hampshire. Nearly 2.1 million Wisconsinites voted, based on unofficial returns. Essentially, half the people that could vote did vote: roughly 47% of the states voting-age population and an estimated 49% of all eligible voting-age citizens. "Thats unusual," said turnout expert Michael McDonald, for a contest "this late in the presidential election calendar."

    Received wisdom is what “everybody knows” is true without anyone having to think about it. Received wisdom has a lot of defense mechanisms: for example, trading in unexamined assumptions, avoiding contrary evidence, dismissing the need of evidence at all, or demonizing those who question it. Question-begging slogans are another. Mantras like “nothing to do with Islam” or “war on women” substitute for evidence and analysis. Another is “you can’t say that,” used to dismiss or marginalize comments or proposed policies by assuming disastrous consequences, or implying that saying such things is morally repugnant and, to quote Obama’s favorite obfuscation, “doesn’t...

    Voter ID laws have been challenged because liberal Democrats deem them racist. I guess that's because they see blacks as being incapable of acquiring some kind of government-issued identification. Interesting enough is the fact that I've never heard of a challenge to other ID requirements as racist, such as those: to board a plane, open a charge account, have lab work done or cash a welfare check. Since liberal Democrats only challenge legal procedures to promote ballot-box integrity, the conclusion one reaches is that they are for vote fraud prevalent in many Democrat-controlled cities.

Yet, last week, we’ve watched as the same media which lambasted Bush over weapons of mass destruction in Iraq collectively shrugged in response to the revelation that Hillary Clinton knowingly deceived the American people regarding the September 11, 2012, attack on the American embassy in Benghazi, Libya.In case you somehow missed it, here’s what we learned, as reported by Reason: According to documents revealed as part of the ongoing Congressional...

    Of course Donald Trump is doing very well and doesnt need any help; but the way he is mopping the floor with the other guys could actually present a small but real problem on his march to victory. Those who have run local political campaigns, say for County Executive, have likely experienced or seen the problem of dealing with the down time between the county committees endorsement in April or May and the real campaign against a Democrat that starts unofficially the day after Labor Day. This can be called the July 5th problem. If there is excitement about your...

    If Americas 58th presidential election validates Ted Cruzs audacious base plus strategy, he will have refuted assumptions about the importance of independent swing voters and the inertia of many missing voters. Critics say his plan for pursuing the Republican nomination precludes winning the presidency. Jason Johnson, Cruzs chief strategist, responds: Im working backward from Election Day, because Cruzs plan for winning the necessary 1,236 convention delegates is an extrapolation from his strategy for winning 270 electoral votes. All presidential campaigns aspire to favorably change the composition of the electorate. Cruz aims to substantially reconfigure the electorate as it has recently...

    Davie, Florida (CNN)At 3:30 p.m. Friday, one hour after Hillary Clinton was scheduled to take the stage at the gym at Broward College here, Vikesh Patel and three of his classmates left without catching a glimpse of the Democratic front-runner in this key Florida county. She was running late from a fundraiser. "We've been here since one o'clock," said Patel, who doesn't know much about Clinton but whose parents have followed her and her husband for decades. He and his classmates were also going to work the rally into a paper for a speech class they're taking. "I guess we'll...

    There they go again. If there were a recent editorial that could help account for the rise of Donald Trump, this one from our friends on the Wall Street Journal editorial board would be it: Government Shutdown Redux Obama and Clinton want a showdown over Planned Parenthood. Going after Senator Ted Cruz, the article reads: Congress is back in Washington, which means more intra-GOP drama when funding for the government expires at the end of the month. Some conservatives are trying to force a showdown over Planned Parenthood, but we wish theyd explain how this would benefit the antiabortion movement...

    Crossover voters. They are an integral part of the Republican establishments plan to nominate Jeb Bush as their candidate for the presidency. This plan in a nutshell, well described by many, especially Sundance at The Conservative Treehouse, is as follows: 1.Change the rules of the nomination process so that the results of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina do not give an outsider real momentum. 2.Utilize the Bush family connections to fund Super PACs beholden to the establishment, which will be used to ensure his win. 3.Use these Super PACs to fund splitter candidates in certain states to enable Jeb...

    Mass Legal Immigration Will Finish Conservatism by MARK KRIKORIAN August 31, 2015 Conservative luminaries have been warning that Donald Trump poses a threat to the Republican party and to the political future of conservativism. Charles Krauthammer has called him political poison. Fred Barnes says Trump has made the GOPs future dicey. George Will thunders characteristically that every sulfurous belch from the molten interior of the volcanic Trump phenomenon injures the chances of a Republican presidency. All this may be true. Trump is indeed a braggart who goes out of his way to antagonize people not a winning approach in...
