As the work week comes to a close I can't help but wonder what did we really learn from the past five days.  For me I learned the people of New Hampshire are down right kooky.  I get the whole we like Donald thing (I do not agree with it mind you but at least I understand how you were deceived into coming to that position).  What I can not fathom is where did this tsunami of support for John "Mr. Personality" Kaisich come from?  Which part of his generic tired message made you show up in droves and support his candidacy?  New Hampshire, you had your moment in the sun and the good news is, it is over now.  But don't worry you will be relevant again in just four short years.


Shame, Shame, Shame on you.  A group of African American Pastors gathered to bless Hillary Clinton as our President-to-be.  These "men of God" did not gather to pray for Hillary Clinton as a potential leader of our nation.  This would be acceptable, to ask the almighty to provide clarity and wisdom to our possible (it pains me to say) leader.  No these men gathered to anoint her, to bless her every action, to declare that God's favor would be upon her.  Now some may say that not every good Christian needs to be a republican, and hesitantly I will agree with that point.  We can disagree on Obamacare, the economy, entitlements, etc. and still love Jesus.  I however can not begin to grasp how men who have dedicated their life to teaching others about the love and freedom that can be found in God can anoint a woman who is actively leading a genocide against their people.

And the stark reality is that, what slavery and segregation could not do, abortion is doing, killing black babies at a disproportionate rate compared to the rest of the nation. In the words of black pastor Clenard Childress, “The most dangerous place for an African American is in the womb. (He claims that “1,786 African-American children . . . are killed each day in the womb.”)

“there were more black babies killed by abortion (31,328) in New York City than were born there (24,758), and the black children killed comprised 42.4 percent of the total number of abortions in the Big Apple, according to a report by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.”

Note also that while blacks make up roughly 25 percent of the city's population, they made up more than 42 percent of the abortions, while nationwide, blacks make up roughly 13 percent of the population but account for more than 35 percent of all abortions.

The truth is Hillary's abortion stance is extreme.  She feels not enough babies are being slaughtered.  If you agree with her you will one day answer to your maker as well, but for me and my family... we will vote for Ted Cruz.


This is scary, In all the time that has passed since the Islamic terror attack in California we still can not see what is in the couples cell phones.  So we have no idea who they were in communication with leading up to the attack.  Apparently two nothings with limited education and funds were able to encrypt their cell phones so well the FBI is stumped.  See this is why I just can not get behind so many "conspiracy theories" that get floated around the internet.  The same guys who can't figure out how to get into an icloud account are capable of imploding buildings in NYC and keeping it quite for 15 years.  Or wait... maybe that is exactly what they want us to think!


Reality Check Time for conservatives.  It is time to bring down Trump.  Some Republican on Republican violence (figuratively) is gonna be required.  Those of us who have not drank the kool-aide yet need to arm ourselves with facts to combat Trump supporters and shame them for the deception that they are allowing to be enacted upon them.  Even if you tend to believe Trumps bold faced lies at least acknowledge that a Trump nomination = a Clinton Presidency.  If that doesn't scare you then you may just be on the wrong team.  Rush may have woken up this week.

They were moving left faster than anybody I’ve ever seen go left. And I opened the program yesterday saying, “You will never, ever have to worry about that with Ted Cruz.” And then I expanded on it. And let me say one thing: If conservatism is your bag, if conservatism is the dominating factor in how you vote, there is no other choice for you in this campaign than Ted Cruz, because you are exactly right: This is the closest in our lifetimes we have ever been to Ronald Reagan.  In terms of doctrinaire, understandable, articulated, implementable conservatism, there’s nobody closer.

Ted Cruz, you need to lead this charge.  Keep talking like this, be forceful and certain that Trump is not an inevitability.

“South Carolina historically has played a critical role picking presidents. And I think Iowa and New Hampshire perform an incredibly important function in narrowing the field and in many ways this field is becoming a two-person race between me and Donald Trump,” the Texas senator said on the Mike Gallagher Show Wednesday. “What Iowa and New Hampshire demonstrate is that the only person in this field who can beat Donald Trump is me. The other candidates are not able to beat Donald Trump.”

“You can’t beat Donald coming from the left. It doesn’t work,” he said. “If you campaign against Donald saying, ‘hey, I’m more liberal than you I’m more into amnesty than you, I’ll be softer on radical Islamic terrorists than you, it doesn’t work, as we’ve seen twice in Iowa and New Hampshire.”


Priceless.  I have no idea if San Antonio Spurs coach Greg Popovich loves Hillary or hates Trump.  Either way his reaction on live TV to the results of the New Hampshire primary is perfect.  Check out the video of his full 30 second interview at the link above.  It will make you chuckle.


As always Red State this is open thread so feel free to discuss what ever you want.  I appreciate you taking the time to read the Watercooler.
