It’s Not What Donald Trump Will Do. It’s What Donald Trump Has Done.
At this point, it is fairly well established that Donald Trump is the Republican Party Nominee for President of these United States of America. Go us. If it turns out we aren’t, in fact, being Punk’d, then this is a reality a lot of people are going to have to come to terms with.

Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse, who has been the spirit animal of the #NeverTrump movement since almost the moment of its inception, penned a heartfelt letter on his Facebook page last night. Sasse’s thoughts are always clear and refreshing, and it’s a nice change of pace to hear from someone who speaks his true convictions without fear of the consequences in Washington, DC. Interestingly, though, Senator | Read More »
This important precedent can save the Republican Party from Donald Trump
Historically, political parties in this country had an important check on raw majority rule. If one faction tried to ram through a nominee or platform that didn’t represent the whole party, and offered no form of compromise, then the rest could bolt.

Trump Refuses to Condemn Supporters for Sending Death Threats (VIDEO)
Add this to the million existing reasons for the #NeverTrump movement. Donald Trump spoke with Wolf Blitzer today on CNN and did what he always does: talks incoherent circles around a point because he’s too intellectually challenged to formulate complete sentences. Then, of course, when forced to answer a question, he seems to always choose the answer most morally corrupt. Which is totally a weird | Read More »
“Different Kind of Republican” Trump Is Now Open To Raising the Minimum Wage

Trump Is Terrible. So Is Hillary. Count Me In As #NeverHillary
I will never vote for Hillary Clinton. I just want to make that clear. There will never be a ballot in my name with a checkmark or a hole punched next to the name Hillary Clinton. Or any Clinton. It just isn’t going to happen. People are abandoning the GOP after Trump’s victory, a move I applaud. They are looking at third party candidate, which | Read More »

OBAMA’S URINATION ADMINISTRATION: New Video SLAMS President For Stupid, Reckless Priorities
There is a lot going on in the world. Just yesterday, a Navy Seal was shot and killed by ISIS terrorists in Iraq. A combat death, you see.
