Cruz Campaign Asks South Carolina TV Stations to Pull Attack Ads
Politico is reporting that the Ted Cruz campaign has sent a letter, through its counsel, to South Carolina television stations that are running attack ads funded by an anti-Cruz Super PAC. The basic gist of the Cruz campaign’s letter is that the ads are false, and that the stations face potential legal liability for running them: “The ad falsely claims ‘Cruz proposed mass legalization of | Read More »
A Nutty Plan To Confirm An Obama Nominee To Replace Scalia – After The Election
Barack Obama’s nominee to replace Justice Scalia on the Supreme Court cannot be confirmed by the U.S. Senate without the co-operation of Republicans, because there are 54 Republicans in the Senate. That’s enough to block Democrats from getting (1) the 50 votes needed to confirm (the tiebreaking 51st would be Vice President Biden), (2) the 60 votes needed to break a filibuster, or (3) the | Read More »
Thomas Sowell Endorses Cruz Because Of The Supreme Court
Thomas Sowell, economist, social theorist, political philosopher, author and Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, endorses Sen. Ted Cruz. Sowell’s main, and perhaps sole, reason for backing Cruz is the Supreme Court vacancy resulting from the unexpected death of Justice Scalia and the advanced ages of other justices:

Time for Marco Rubio to Join the Party
At long last, Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush have mounted some really effective attacks on Donald Trump. Whether or not they have actually caused Trump’s poll numbers to go down, they have prevented them from going up, which is all that’s really needed to defeat Trump. I’ve been pretty critical of the constant infighting between Rubio and Cruz, but I will say this about Ted Cruz: | Read More »
FAA reauthorization is not conservative
American aviation needs to be reformed, but Congress is considering taking a sledgehammer approach to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) that could cripple our entire aviation industry. The FAA reauthorization bill, H.R. 4441, goes against key conservative principles of low taxation, limited government, and fundamental fairness. As laid out in an op-ed I wrote for The Hill, H.R. 4441 would separate air traffic control from the | Read More »
PANIC At Campaign Clinton!!
The Political Wire notes panic is setting in at camp Clinton. “The Clinton panic is palpable. Clinton spent Monday in Nevada and sent her husband to fill in at Florida events after her campaign clearly sensed the firewall buckling here. … There is a dearth of reliable public polling in Nevada, but no one on either side has asserted the race is not in reach | Read More »
New Virginia Poll Shows the Race Clarifying
A new poll has been released for the State of Virginia, and it confirms a lot of the conventional wisdom about how the race is shaping up. Virginia is a Super Tuesday state and is probably a pretty good representation of how many of the Southern Super Tuesday states are thinking right now. On the Democrat side, Hillary leads Bernie Sanders, but by less than you | Read More »
Ted Cruz in South Carolina: Commanders shouldn’t worry about “gluten-free MREs”
Now that the GOP race has moved out of the left-wing northeast, where Donald Trump shined, Ted Cruz is back in motion, getting bold when speaking to crowds in South Carolina. Like fellow conservative Marco Rubio, who’s also showing gains in the state, Ted Cruz is making it clear that if he were President, America would have a stronger military ready to keep our country | Read More »
Ahead of South Carolina, New NBC Poll Has Trump Gaining, Rubio Back In Third
In the new NBC News/SurveyMonkey weekly online tracking poll, Ted Cruz firms up his second place spot, Trump keeps a commanding lead, and Rubio trails in third and is down three points over the previous week. Here is the breakdown of current candidates for the last few weeks: This was an online poll of 11,400 registered voters nationwide from Feb. 8-14 with an overall margin | Read More »
This is the Stupidest, Most Hypocritical Op-Ed Ever Written
You expect Democrats to be dishonest, and you kind of expect them to try to score political points off the SCOTUS vacancy caused by Antonin Scalia’s untimely death. However, this op-ed by alleged pederast Harry Reid in the Washington Post is the most amazingly and hilariously hypocritical (and stupid) thing possibly ever written. The basic gist is that the guy who pretty much invented the | Read More »

Trump: Ok, I lied when I said Bush lied.
It always amuses me when anyone pretends Donald Trump’s flip-flopping only takes place over a long timeline. As though he forever ago changed his mind on a lot of issues and has been consistent ever since. The truth is he is a serial flip-flopper who constantly adjusts his position to fit whatever particular conversation he’s having at the moment. If he gets flustered enough, he | Read More »
ISIS WMD attack in Iraq against Kurds. You know: the place without WMDs.
Hey! Somebody confirmed that the WMDs that Donald Trump told us George W. Bush lied about existing in Iraq… existed. In Iraq. And got used against our allies.

Trump Campaigns Like A Twitter Troll
The Donald, behaves just like the Twitter Trolls you have to block because attempting to engage them in a civil discussion is futile. When presented with facts that prove a Twitter Troll wrong they just reply with inflammatory responses usually in the form of an insult or name calling.

The EPA Isn’t Handling Its Business – But Insists On Man-Handling Ours
I have a (somewhat tongue-in-cheek) rule for federal government departments, agencies, commissions and boards: Barring a Constitutional amendment, if a bureaucracy was created after 1800 – it shouldn’t exist. The Founding Fathers who wrote the Constitution – were by 1800 thoroughly implementing it. If they didn’t yet have the federal government doing something – the federal government wasn’t to be doing it. So unless a | Read More »
