Trump Hires Campaign Manager, Delays TV Gig: Says He’s Serious About Running

Hat/Tip to Robert Costa at The Washington Post. It is starting to look a lot like Christmas….er, I mean campaign season. And it’s also starting to look a lot like The Donald is going to be throwing his hat into the ring this time. This time, Donald J. Trump says, he really means it. The real-estate billionaire-turned reality TV star said in an interview that he is “more serious” now, than ever about running for President in 2016. In recent days, Trump said, he has hired staffers in key primary states, retained an election attorney and delayed signing on for […]

Rudy And The Red

  “Ex-NYC mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s statement that Barack Obama was influenced by communists in his youth and doesn’t love his country isn’t nearly as fascinating as the reaction to it.” – Selwyn Duke “In Obama [the media] see themselves. What he wants to carry out is what they want and they are going to do what they can to make sure these last two years he gets to do just that, the consequences be damned.  So whether it is going after Rudy Giuliani or going after a Congressional staffer for a slight against the Obama daughters, the media is going […]

12 Year Old Black Middle School Student Makes More Sense Than Our President

Hat/Tip to BFH at IOTWReport.com and Olaf Ekberg at The American Mirror. You’ve got to admire this young man. He is firm in his beliefs, his love of country and his method of addressing America’s woes. President Obama may enjoy the approval of 84% of blacks, but don’t count CJ Pearson among them. Pearson, a 12-year-old middle school student in Georgia, has more informed opinions than many adults. The student posted a YouTube video yesterday in which he seeks to “applaud Mayor Rudy Giuliani for his comments about President Barack Obama.” “Here’s the truth of the matter: I don’t want to […]

Giuliani To Libs Demanding He Apologize For Saying Obama “Doesn’t Love America”: No…

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Stand firm Rudy, screw the PC police! Tell it like it is! Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was on “The Kelly File” tonight, where he doubled down on his comment that President Barack Obama does not love America. Megyn Kelly asked Giuliani: Do you want to apologize for your comment? “Not at all, I want to repeat it,” he said, charging Obama with apologizing for America and criticizing the country. Kelly pressed Giuliani, noting that Obama could view foreign policy through a Democratic lens. “But to condemn his patriotism, to question his love of America?” […]

Top 30 Hollywood Conservative Celebrities: A Newsmax List

Hat/Tip to John Blosser at Newsmax. The days of Hollywood reflecting everyday America’s patriotism are long gone. Yes, gone are the stars who proudly served their country and then came home and made movies which also served America’s interests. Gone are names like Jimmy Stewart, Ernest Borgnine, James Arness, Richard Attenborough, Steve McQueen, Alan Ladd, Lorne Greene, Peter Graves, Eddie Albert, Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Clark Gable and even Elvis Presley. No, now Hollywood is the safe haven for ultra liberals who make money by selling their world view of what America is supposedly about. Now we have names like […]

Happy [Belated] Birthday, Ronnie!!

Happy Reagan’s Birthday!!! Reagan’s Birthday was a few days ago and I thought it appropriate to repost this awesome photo (shown below) of our Greatest President. This iconic photo comes to us by way of one of our best contributors, L. D. Jackson who sent it to us via a guest post on his site. The greatest president of my lifetime remains the gold standard by which all other presidents are measured! From a 2010 post of my three favorite Reagan photographs, all of which I took myself, this one is my absolute favorite:     Happy 104th Birthday!

Southern Poverty Law Center Places Ben Carson on “Extremist Watch List”

H/T:  IOTW Report The Southern Poverty Law Center, after inspiring would be mass shooter, Floyd Lee Corkins, attack on the Family Reseach Council, has now decided to smear another Conservative. Ben Carson.  Legal Insurrection has more… If you read through the SPLC explanation, it boils down to Carson strongly supporting traditional marriage, and speaking in front of other groups that SPLC does not approve of.  The SPLC narrative is highly political (emphasis added): … Although the book amplified Carson’s name recognition, the breakout incident that made him a sensation in far-right political circles was his audacious public criticism of President […]

Scott Walker Crushing Other GOP Contenders In DRUDGE Primary Poll…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. He’s got a whopping 46% of the vote! It’s not even close. You can check real time results (and vote) here. Via Breitbart: With all the caveats about this being a non-scientific online poll, it has to mean something that Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker is murdering every other GOP contender by massive margins among those Drudge readers motivated enough to vote. Although voting continues, as of this writing nearly 70,000 total votes have been cast. Walker captured a whopping 45% of them, 31,211 votes. Texas Senator Ted Cruz is in second place with 15%, 10,054 votes. […]

Ben Carson: Obama Letting Islamists ‘Destroy Us’

Hat/Tip to Greg Richter at Newsmax. Up and coming political hopeful, Dr. Ben Carson said, while appearing on a Talk Radio show in New York that he thought Obama was allowing Islamists to destroy us. And he gave a peek at what a Carson administration would be like. Dr. Ben Carson, an expected GOP presidential contender, said he wants to see the size of government reduced if he one day sits in the Oval Office. Appearing on “The Cats Roundtable” on AM 970 in New York on Sunday, Carson told host John Catsimatidis his top priority would be to get […]

Tweet Of The Day: Michael Moore On The Set Of His New Movie, ‘American Snacker’

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. “@_HankRearden: Michael Moore on the set of his new film, ‘American Snacker.’ cc: @MMFlint pic.twitter.com/HSQkdNwNmB” Box Office smash hit! — ericbolling (@ericbolling) January 28, 2015

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 […]
