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 […]

Homeland Security Working Overtime To Add NINE MILLION ‘New Americans’ By 2016 Election

Hat/Tip to J. Christian Adams at PJMedia.com. The Obama administration isn’t just content with destroying as much of America as they can while IN office. His DHS is trying to pave the way to NINE MILLION new Democratic voters… Hope and change much?   President Obama’s amnesty by edict has always been about adding new Democrats to the voter rolls, and recent action by the Department of Homeland Security provides further proof. Sources at the Department of Homeland Security report to PJ Media that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services is reallocating significant resources away from a computer system […]

    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.

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.

Carson, the only African-American in the race, […]

Clinton Foundation Stench Driving Away Donors

  Hat/Tip to IOTWReport.com and Hot Air. Why? Well maybe part of the problem is the stellar endorsements that Hillz has gotten, such as these that are adding to the odor of something, not quite right… Lesbian PAC Endorses Hillary, She Will Lick The Competition … or Larry Flynt Endorses Hillary, Centerfold To Follow? Gee, I wonder why? After all, many of them haven’t yet been identified. Ken Vogel explains that the publicity surrounding the influence-peddling schemes at chez Clinton has potential donors looking elsewhere, but … does that apply to those who still want to buy influence? Hmmm. Actually, the fact […]

Larry Flynt Endorses Hillary, Centerfold To Follow?

Hat/Tip to I Hate The Media. What more can be said, really? . . .

Self Identified Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders Challenges Hillary For Democratic Nomination

Hat/Tip to Fox News. Self described Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders, Independent from Vermont, has announced he is challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders announced Thursday he is running for president, giving Hillary Clinton her first official Democratic primary challenger.  At a press conference, the independent senator and self-described “democratic socialist” said he is “running to win,” though he faces long odds against Clinton’s juggernaut political operation — and several other potential Democratic candidates.  Sanders, in throwing his hat into the ring, urged the media to discuss “serious issues” and […]

Straw Poll: Sarah – 79%, Hillary – 7%

Hat/Tip to Lance Thate at Examiner.com. Of course this is a very unscientific poll, but it makes you wonder what a head-to-head match up between the two of them would be like, huh? Hillary Decimated by Palin in Today’s Poll The media and party polls continue to play each other off with this candidate or that one being beaten by Hillary. When another candidate beats Hillary, there is the proverbial declaration of “within the margin of error too close to call”. This is a never ending theme to fill airtime. The Town Criers ask you to consider their random poll. […]

Democratic Presidential Hopeful Courts Hollywood: And It’s A Man Baby!

  Hat/Tip to Tina Daunt at The Hollywood Reporter. Yep, it’s kind of a foregone conclusion that if you’re a Democrat running for POTUS, then you HAVE to woo the Hollywood Libs. *yuck* You can’t be a serious Democratic presidential hopeful these days without a fundraising base in Hollywood, which is why former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is back in town this week to meet with a loyal cadre of industry admirers. O’Malley on Wednesday afternoon made a visit to Sony Studios, where he has longstanding relationships with a number of top executives. On Thursday evening, he’ll attend a high-wattage meet-and-greet […]

‘Everyday Americans’ In New Hampshire Refuse To Shake Hillary’s Hand

  Hat/Tip to IOTWReport.com. For this Editor, there’s not enough hand sanitizer in the WORLD…   Clinton was at Kristin’s Bakery in Keene, NH in advance of a small-business roundtable event She sat with a handful of customers and made her way to the back to greet employees But a cashier told Daily Mail Online that some of the kitchen staff ‘didn’t want to come out to meet Hillary’ because ‘they just don’t like her’ Clinton’s communications director said it’s helpful to recruit future Hillary evangelists from among Democratic activists by pre-screening them to meet Hillary in small settings as […]

James Carville Says Romney Will ‘Get Back In The Race’ After Jeb Drops Out

Hat/Tip to Karen Tumulty and Robert Costa at The Washington Post. With only Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio on the Republican side and Hillary Clinton on the Democratic side OFFICIALLY in the race for the 2016 Presidential Election, speculation still abounds. Saint Anselm College has been a required stop on the pilgrimage for presidential aspirants, going at least as far back as John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon more than a half-century ago. When former Florida governor Jeb Bush (R) made his first speech here on Friday, he pointed to the historic photos on the wall. “I’m […]

Carly Fiorina Set To Run, Says She Will Take Away Hillary’s ‘I’m A Woman’ Argument

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. This is shaping up to be quite the campaign! Republican Carly Fiorina took a step closer to running for president, revealing Thursday that she is near a decision while blasting Hillary Clinton’s policies as “crushing the middle class.” “I am giving serious consideration to becoming a candidate for the presidency because I think our nation is at a pivotal point,” said the former Hewlett-Packard and one-time California Senate candidate. “I think our government has grown so large, so powerful, so costly, so complex, so corrupt in fact that we are crushing the potential for the nation,” she […]

Second Amendment? Ted Cruz Smacks Down A Reporter – Hard

Hat/Tip to Mike Miller at Doug Ross @ Journal. On the 2nd Amendment Ted Cruz Mops The Floor With Reporter’s Attempt At A “Gotcha Question.” You’ve gotta love how he so Reaganesguely deconstructs, and thus takes the power away from the typical far left ‘gotcha’ question.   At a recent event, GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz was asked the following question: “In the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting, a statistic surfaced putting support for background checks at 90%. Did you go against the want of the nation with your vote against Manchin-Toomey (a bill that would have required background […]

Hillz First Campaign Speech Tackles Free Speech – Go Figure

Hat/Tip to Andrew Malcom at Investors Business Daily. Yep, we’re not even really underway as far as the 2016 Presidential Election is concerned, but Hillz is already talking about taking away some of our rights… You may very well have missed it. But at her first 2016 campaign stop in Iowa Tuesday, wannabe president Hillary Clinton called for a constitutional amendment if necessary to limit free speech rights granted by the Supreme Court to unions, companies and organizations donating to political campaigns. Few might have expected the ex-Obama aide to kick off her second bid to infiltrate the Oval Office […]

Is Rubio Eligible To Be POTUS?

  Hat/Tip to Javier Manjarres at Breitbart. Editor’s Note: We ran a story about Marco Rubio which was written by Ken McIntyre at The Daily Signal. From the feedback of the comments, it would seem that, once again there are those who, armed with Google have their own interpretation of what the term natural born citizen means. Here, reprinted in its entirety, is an article from April of 2013 by Breitbart.com, one of the MOST Conservative websites on the planet. Conservative Hideout takes no sides on this issue, as we have ‘no dog in the fight’, so to speak. Our job […]

Both Ted Cruz And Marco Rubio Are Eligible To Be President Or Vice-President

Editor’s Note: We ran a story about Marco Rubio which was written by Ken McIntyre at The Daily Signal. From the feedback of the comments, it would seem that, once again there are those who, armed with Google have their own interpretation of what the term natural born citizen means. Here, reprinted in its entirety, is an article from September of 2013 by Diane Sori at the Tea Party Tribune, which is among the staunchest Conservative websites in the blogosphere. Conservative Hideout takes no sides on this issue, as we have ‘no dog in the fight’, so to speak. Our job is to present […]

“I Want A Woman President, Just Not You!”

Hat/Tip to the Conservative Tribune. In one of her famous opening segment monologues, Judge Jeanine Pirro ripped Hillary Clinton to shreds over her credibility, or rather lack of credibility. I wouldn’t want to be on this lady’s bad side. Very few people would ever confuse the Fox News Channel’s Judge Jeanine Pirro with a supporter of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. However, just to make sure that her views are clear as can be, the fiery judge ripped into the former Secretary of State, Senator, and first lady during her “Opening Statement” on her Saturday evening program. Judge Jeanine began by […]
