14 Reasons Donald Trump Is Really Running — And Doing Well

Hat/Tip to Jim Meyers at Newsmax. Love him or hate him, there’s no denying that he is the quintessential deal maker. That quality would serve a POTUS well in relations with other countries and in getting legislation through Congress. Real estate tycoon and reality TV star Donald Trump says he will announce once and for all in June if he will seek the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. There are a number of signs that Trump will in fact run for president this time — and indications are that he is doing well in the run-up to the announcement. Here are […]

Who ‘Da Best Prez?

Which President Did The Best Job During His First Six Years In The White House?   Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal and imperfectamerica at Red State. . . .

This Boy Wonder Is Building The Conservative Answer To MoveOn.org In An Illinois Garage

Hat/Tip to IOTWReport.com and Julie Bykowicz at Bloomberg Politics. Maybe there is hope for the GOP after all.   Charlie Kirk was just about to leave the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa when he spotted the multimillionaire investor Foster Friess in a stairwell. Kirk, who was 18 and fresh out of high school, had spent weeks memorizing the names and faces of the top 25 Republican political donors in case he found himself in just such a situation. He grabbed Friess into a handshake, took a nervous breath, and began his elevator pitch. Instead of going to college, he wanted […]

Mark Levin: GITMO Terrorists Have More Due Process Rights Than U.S. Police…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Maybe she’s trying to land a job at Eric Holder’s law firm…   Nationally syndicated radio talk show host Mark Levin took Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby to task yesterday on Hannity questioning her decision-making and saying, “How can it be that terrorists in Guantanamo Bay apparently have more due process rights, apparently are released even though they go back to the battlefield and they kill Americans and others, how can it be that they are treated one way and police officers another?” “Joining us now, nationally syndicated radio talk show host, I call him the […]

TED CRUZ: The Blood Of Millions Will Be On Obama’s Head If This Insane Iran Deal Goes Forward

  Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. While the feckless GOP leadership in the Senate has kissed Obama’s ass yet again, this time seemingly allowing HIM to perform THEIR Constitutionally mandated duty, that of approving treaties with foreign governments; Ted Cruz is not going down quietly. Sen. Ted Cruz is an outspoken critic of the Obama administration’s bizarre deal to loosen sanctions on Iran and allow it to continue to develop nuclear weapons. A complicit GOP establishment — including “craven moron” Bob Corker and the mendacious malignancy known as Mitch McConnell are Obama’s co-conspirators — and have essentially ceded the […]

Is Glenn Beck Dropping His Support For Ted Cruz?

  Hat/Tip to The Blaze. Some folks are worried that Glenn Beck has soured on Ted Cruz. Well, according to The Blaze, that just isn’t so. Glenn Beck on Tuesday said he is still a “full-fledged” supporter of Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, despite recent reports to the contrary. The confusion stems from a comment Beck made on his radio program Monday, where he said he wasn’t sure Cruz could govern if elected in 2016. “So does that mean that Glenn Beck is a psycho, schizophrenic, has changed his mind? Or am I missing a piece of information?” Beck asked […]

GOP Rep Introduces Bill To Gut EPA

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal and Timothy Cama at The Hill. It may pass, but it’ll never get signed by Obama. A House Republican wants to cut 13 programs at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), including all of its grants and its ability to regulate ground-level ozone and carbon dioxide. Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas) introduced a bill, the Wasteful EPA Programs Elimination Act, which he said is a money-saving measure, citing a Heritage Foundation forecast that it would save $7.5 billion over 10 years. “As a fiscal conservative, I believe Washington should be respectful of taxpayers’ dollars and live […]

Carly Fiorina: ‘Yes, I Am Running For President’

    Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Once again, to recap who is officially running for POTUS: For the GOP: Ted Cruz Marco Rubio Rand Paul Dr. Ben Carson For the Dems: Hillary Clinton Bernie Sanders   Fiorina ran an unsuccessful campaign to unseat California Democrat Barbara Boxer. Carson gained political fame when he criticized President Barack Obama at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast while the president was sitting a few feet away. Fiorina served as an executive at AT&T and Lucent before assuming the leadership role at HP, then America’s largest computer maker, in 1999. That business experience, along with her […]

Ben Carson Is Running For President

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. So officially it’s now: For the GOP: Ted Cruz Marco Rubio Rand Paul Dr. Ben Carson For the Dems: Hillary Clinton Bernie Sanders He made a splash on the national scene when he politely, but effectively ripped Obama’s nanny state policies to shreds. Now he’s asking you to vote for him for POTUS. Retired surgeon Ben Carson declared his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination Monday, resting his longshot bid on his vision of the nation as “a place of dreams” where people can thrive when freed from an overbearing government. Carson, the only African-American in the race, […]

Urge Your State Representatives To Support An Article V Convention

  Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. Mark Levin started this movement with his best selling book, The Liberty Amendments, it’s up to us to keep it going. Do you believe Washington, D.C., is broken? Do you believe those in D.C. are willing or capable of curbing their own power? Are you looking for a solution to reduce the size, scope and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose fiscal restraints and place term limits on federal officials? A package of constitutional amendments — proposed by an Article V convention of the states and designed to curb the abuses of the […]

Audio: Mark Levin Says Baltimore Prosecutor Is A HACK And A DISGRACE

Hat/Tip to IOTWReport.com. As usual, Mark Levin knocks it out of the park on the flimsy excuse for justice in Baltimore. Mark Levin opened his show tonight with blistering analysis of the announced prosecutions of Baltimore police officers, saying it all amounts to mob rule. He points out that the prosecutor, who brought the charges today against the six officers involved in Freddie Gray’s arrest, based these charges on a complaint as the investigations aren’t even completed yet. Further, he said that some of these charges are utterly absurd and that this prosecution is all about politics. Levin says this […]

The President Loves The Military, Just Not The One In Office Right Now…

    Hat/Tip to MRConservative.com. Remember what it was like to have a Commander-in-Chief who LOVED and RESPECTED the brave men and women who donned their country’s uniform and paid the price to defend her? Me neither. And that’s because for the last six years, we’ve had a loathsome individual who abhors the military. He has zero respect for them and will go completely out of his way to avoid having to talk with any member of the military. But that wasn’t so in the previous administration. Love him, or hate him, but there is no denying his love, admiration […]

Why Democrats Are The Party Of Slavery And Victimization

Hat/Tip to Alfonzo Rachel at PJ Media. Alfonzo Rachel speaks truth to power and lays it on the line. He isn’t afraid to call a spade a spade, and he can back up all his words with facts. Take the time to watch this video, you’ll be glad you did. . . .

There Is No Room For Christians In Today’s Democratic Party According To Ted Cruz

  Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. It has been posited that Liberalism, that is today’s definition of the Liberal-Secular-Progressive is a mental disorder. That may be true and, in that same vein we have Senator Ted Cruz from Texas positing that within that movement, the Liberal-Secular-Progressive movement, or in other words, the Democratic Party that there is no room in that Party for Christians. The title of Jonah Goldberg’s recent bestseller — Liberal Fascism — has become part of the modern political parlance. Sen. Ted Cruz argued Saturday that Democrats have become so extreme and “intolerant” of religious views […]

Killing Them With Kindness: Gov. Perry Expertly Handles Repetitive, Hostile Questions By Audience Member

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Even though it’s still early in this campaign season, we’re already beginning to see a different Gov. Rick Perry than we did in the 2012 race. He’s more calm, confident and assuring. Check out how he handles a series of hostile questions by a woman in the audience. Hillary Clinton, of course, has no qualms getting a boatload of foreign government donations with the Clinton Foundation. But she’s hiding out from hostile questions on her ‘listening tour’… . . .

Ted Cruz Sets His Own ‘Red Line In The Sand’: Congress Must Approve Any Iran Deal

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. Once again, Ted Cruz displays the type of leadership that is sorely lacking in the Oval Office right now. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pennsylvania, have filed an amendment (#1152) to the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015, which would require affirmative Congressional approval of any Iranian nuclear deal before sanctions relief can occur. “The Constitution makes clear that Congress must approve international agreements like the one President Obama is negotiating with Iran,” said Sen. Cruz. “A nuclear Iran is the single greatest threat to our national security and […]

Ted Cruz:The New York Times Doesn’t Have A Clue About The Meaning Of The Second Amendment

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. It looks like the New York Times is having trouble understanding what “…the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed,” really means.   The New York Times Doesn’t Have A Clue About The Meaning Of The Second Amendment By Senator Ted Cruz (R, TX) On Friday, the New York Times stated, in a blaring headline, that my support for Second Amendment rights is “strange.” In particular, the writer took issue with my statement that “”the Second Amendment to the Constitution isn’t for just protecting hunting rights, and it’s not only […]

Rubio’s Univision Remarks Lost In Translation: Says He WILL End Obama’s Illegal Executive Amnesty

  Hat/Tip to Sarah Rumpf at Breitbart. There are tons of Facebook posts claiming that Marco Rubio told Univision that he supported Obama’s Illegal Executive Amnesty. Such as this one…   What really happened? In a Spanish language interview with Jorge Ramos on Univision’s Al Punto show, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) discussed immigration policy, affirming his longstanding objection to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) programs. An article on Breitbart News earlier Saturday said that Rubio called DACA “important” and one that he would not reverse, but a closer […]
