Trump Blasts Romney, Jeb Bush; ‘Seriously Thinking’ About Presidential Run

  Hat/Tip to Rick Klein at ABCNews. We’ve already reported here at CH2.0 that Donald Trump was blunt when speaking about a possible Romney run of President in 2016. “I supported Mitt Romney and he didn’t bring outthe people,” Trump said on “Fox & Friends” Monday. “He choked in the end … frankly, he just choked, choked like a dog, and we cannot allow that to happen again.” Well, he’s at it again. Donald Trump was a speaker at the Iowa Freedom Summit hosted by Iowa Rep. Steve King. When it came to how he felt about a Romney or […]

Walker Wows Crowd In Iowa

  Hat/Tip to Nickarama at WeaselZippers. Few politicians have accomplished what Governor Scott Walker has done. First, he’s elected as a reformer, then when he does what he promised to do, the Unions and far left try to oust him with a recall election. Then he wins his recall election with a BIGGER percentage of the vote than he got in the first election. And finally, he’s won re-election. Scott Walker would make a fine President and he definitely has the bona fides to get the job done and get the United States back on track. DES MOINES, Iowa — […]

Sarah Palin: ‘Of Course’ I’m Interested In The 2016 Election

Hat/Tip to Cathy Burke at Newsmax. It’s unofficially official that she’s probably considering the possibility of running for the office of President of the United States in 2016. In politics, that means she’s running, but still one never knows, and the one thing for certain with Sarah Palin is that she never follows political orthodoxy. That’s a huge part of her appeal and if she does run, it will probably be the quality that wins her the election. Republican 2008 vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin declares that “of course” she’s interested in the 2016 presidential election. “Yeah, I mean, of course, […]

Open Letter From Green Beret Sniper To Michael Moore

Hat/Tip to Clash Daily. We’ve been covering the outlandish, ignorant and vulgar comments that Michael Moore said in regards to the Chris Kyle movie, American Sniper. Now although Moore tried to backpedal and say that he wasn’t speaking about Chris Kyle, it hasn’t slowed the onslaught of celebrities voicing their ill opinion of Moore and his cowardly comments. Moore started all this with this tweet:   My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren’t heroes. And invaders r worse — Michael Moore (@MMFlint) January 18, 2015 Well […]

Sen. Jim Inhofe Outfoxes Dems on Climate Change in Keystone Vote

Hat/Tip to Melissa Clyne at Newsmax. For those of us who are political junkies, or even those of us who are simply trying to keep the newly minted Republican-controlled Congress’ feet to the fire, we’ve all noticed the posts making the rounds on Facebook, and the other social media sites stating that we’ve been sold out. Headlines like, “GOP Senate votes in favor of man-made Global Warming!” have been getting lots of “likes” and “shares” along with comments that really can’t be reprinted here. But wait, oh faithful minions of the Tea Party movement, not so fast there! In what The […]

Why Does “American Sniper” Divide Us Into “Left” And “Right”?

Hat/Tip to Wordsmith at Flopping Aces. One of Flopping Aces’ best, Wordsmith delves into the phenomenon that is American Sniper. Here is his Op-Ed in its entirety: Whatever the truth about Chris Kyle (and I suspect, like most, the real Chris Kyle was a complex person; and lived tall tales while fabricating others), he is an American hero. My understanding of the film is that it’s not meant to make a political statement. But I suppose everything under the sun is political when you bring your politics with you in going to see movies. I’ve not seen the film yet, […]

Trump On The Attack: Romney ‘Choked Like a Dog’ in 2012 Campaign

  Hat/Tip to Sandy Fitzgerald at Newsmax. Never one to back away from controversy or let the media set the tone in whatever endeavors he participates in, Donald Trump is at it again. This time it’s about the next Presidential election and he minces no words. Mitt Romney “choked like a dog” in the 2012 election, Donald Trump said Monday, adding that neither Romney nor most of the slate of potential GOP nominees will be able to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. “I supported Mitt Romney and he didn’t bring out the people,” Trump said on “Fox & Friends” Monday. […]

‘American Sniper’ Makes Eastwood’s Friday With $30.5M, Projected To Hit $80M By Monday

    Hat/Tip to Anthony D’Alessandro at Deadline. We reported here that Chris Kyle’s father looked Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper in the eyes and said:  “Disrespect my son and I’ll unleash Hell on you.” Well, it would seem that Eastwood and Cooper lived up to the high standards set by the elder Mr. Kyle if the huge first weekend box office receipts have anything to say about it. Warner Bros. is reporting Friday at $30.5M for American Sniper – not only a January opening day record, but more than any Clint Eastwood film has ever made in a weekend. With a […]

Rising GOP Star, Joni Ernst To Deliver GOP’s SOTU Response

    Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. She’s the polar opposite of Mitch McConnell, she has a spine, and as WeaselZippers so eloquently put it, she has ‘cajones.’ McConnell picked someone with a pair of cojones. Ernst is a rising star in the GOP and a solid Conservative, to boot. As reported here at CH2.0, she rose to national attention during the 2014 mid-terms. Joni Ernst was elected as Iowa’s first female US Senator last Tuesday as part of the massive GOP landslide which saw the Party retake the majority in the the Upper House of Congress. She is an Iowan, born […]

Paul Ryan Says He WON’T Run For President In 2016…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Paul Ryan made his Presidential aspirations for 2016 public today. Ryan said he would not run if Mitt ran again. Romney also just made clear he’s thinking about running again. Wonderful… Via Daily Caller: Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan is a no-go for 2016. The 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee announced Monday that he will not run for the White House. Ryan’s news comes just days after Mitt Romney, his running mate, made clear he may run again. “I have decided that I am not going to run for president in 2016,” Ryan told NBC News on Monday. […]

Bill Whittle – Terrorist Nation

  It has been almost a month since I last wrote on Political Realities. This hiatus has not been because I haven’t been paying attention to what has been happening in the world. It is also not indicative of a lack of concern I feel for what I see going on. I simply have been busy taking care of other priorities, some of which have been neglected during the five plus years I have written this blog. That being said, some things can not be ignored. It is fitting that this next post is about the terror that seems to […]

Ellen DeGeneres Does It, Okay: Sarah Palin Does It, Not So Much

      Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers and Kevin Scholla at Breitbart. Okay, so when a lesbian talk show host posts a picture of a child standing on a full-sized dog to reach a sink so that she can brush her teeth, it’s adorable! Cute! Fun! When a Constitutional Conservative and former Republican Governor posts a picture of a child standing on a full-sized dog to reach a sink to help Mom with the dishes, it is outrageous! PETA gets alerted and the Left has a collective aneurysm. That would indicate that it is much less about animal welfare and much more […]

Rubio Moving Close To Decision On Presidential Run

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Things could get interesting between Rubio and Jeb Bush in the coming months. Rubio is going to run. Update to a previous story. Via Miami Herald Sen. Marco Rubio says he’s moving closer to a decision on whether to seek the Republican presidential nomination, but he’s not there yet. Rubio tells National Public Radio “this is not a gut decision.” He also says in an interview broadcast Thursday that he doesn’t have a “date in mind or a time frame in mind” for making his decision, “but certainly soon.” Rubio, a Florida conservative, says he has “tremendous […]

Supreme Court: Mark Levin Submits Amicus Brief In ObamaCare Subsidy Battle

  Hat/Tip to Katie Pavlich at TownHall.com. The Godfather of the Modern Conservative Movement is once again defending liberty and attacking the never-ending statism from the left. Conservative radio host and Landmark Legal Foundation President Mark Levin has submitted an amicus brief in support of the petitioners in King v. Burwell, the ObamaCare legal case that will be heard by the Supreme Court on March 5, 2015. The case addresses whether “the Internal Revenue Service may permissibly promulgate regulations to extend tax-credit subsidies to coverage purchased through exchanges established by the federal government under Section 1321 of the Patient Protection […]

Ben Carson: ‘Bunch of Crap’ That Obamacare Can’t Be Undone

  Hat/Tip to Melissa Clyne at Newsmax. Ben Carson spoke out recently about the stupidity behind the idea that ObamaCare cannot be eliminated. Dr. Ben Carson said Friday on Newsmax TV’s “America’s Forum” that he doesn’t think any of the ObamaCare architects actually believed the program would work, but that they viewed the law as “moving the ball toward the goal” of a government-controlled, single-payer system. “Healthcare is a gigantic issue, and there’s no question that the system was broken and that we needed to do something about it,” Carson said. “What we did not need to do is create […]

Conservative Lawmakers Plan To Vote Against Boehner For Speaker

  Hat/Tip to Alex Pappas at The Daily Caller. File this one under, “Maybe there is STILL hope for the GOP.” Some disaffected conservative House Republicans are planning to rebel and vote against John Boehner for speaker of the House when the new Congress convenes next week. The official speaker’s election is set for Jan. 6., when the House will convene for a public floor vote to open the new Congress.  While the vote is usually just a formality, these conservative lawmakers are planning to vote for someone other than the Ohio Republican who has been speaker since 2011. There […]

Listen To Martin Luther King Jr Instead Of Al Sharpton

  Asylum Watch offers you these words of wisdom from the Reverend Martin Luther King without comment. Compare them to the rhetoric from the “reverend?” Al Sharpton. “The Christmas hope for peace and good will toward all men can no longer be dismissed as a kind of pious dream of some utopian. If we don’t have good will toward men in this world, we will destroy ourselves by the misuse of our own instruments and our own power. Wisdom born of experience should tell us that war is obsolete. We must either learn to live together as brothers or we […]

Obama’s Executive Order Grants 5 Million Amnesty? More Like 20 Million Says Sheriff Babeau Quoting Homeland Security’s Figures

Hat/Tip to Cathy Burke at Newsmax. By now nothing this arrogant, lawless, Liar-in-Chief says or does surprises me. And this latest revelation simply adds to the mountain of reasons that January 20, 2017 CANNOT get her fast enough. As many as 20 million undocumented immigrants will qualify for President Barack Obama’s deferred deportation action, says Paul Babeu, sheriff of Pinal County, Arizona. The number would be an alarming increase from the estimated 5 million initially expected to qualify under the executive action. But in a Monday interview on Fox News’ “Your World With Neil Cavuto,” Babeu contended that the new […]
