Carson Wants to Meet With Ryan Before Trump Does
As Trump is planning to meet with Republican leaders in Washington this Thursday, sources are saying that retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has asked to meet with House Speaker Paul Ryan first. Since Carson is the opposite of his boorish, arrogant boss, Donald Trump, this is not surprising. Carson has moved from the quiet, almost comatose, candidate with a “Heal. Inspire. Revive” campaign to a mouthpiece | Read More »

EXCLUSIVE RedState Interview with Libertarian Candidate Austin Petersen (VIDEO)
I was privileged to sit down today with Libertarian Party candidate for President Austin Petersen. Austin was good enough to honestly explain all his positions for conservative readers, and to explain the process by which Libertarians choose their nominee (and to explain how you can get involved in the process). Everyone will ultimately make their own decisions about Mr. Petersen, but there’s definitely more to | Read More »
Priebus, Trump, Cruz Backers and the Platform
Given the strong negative feelings Conservative activists and pundits hold toward The Donald and his history of positions antithetical to Republican orthodoxy on almost every major issue important to Conservatives, this move to take control of the Platform has a good chance of blowing up any chance of a possible rapprochement between Trump and the GOP Establishment not to mention Conservatives long unhappy with both.

WOW: Dana Loesch Obliterates CNN Trumpkin Kayleigh McEnany (VIDEO)
This may be difficult to watch if you’ve never witnessed a curb-stomping before. I was on Reliable Sources yesterday and was somewhat blindside by contributor Kayleigh McEnany who declared I and others who would not support Trump were not conservative.

OUCH: Trump Will Never Be The Nominee, Said Every Completely Wrong Person In This Amazing Video
It’s funny to see the experts be so spectacularly wrong. It’s less funny when you could not have wished more for them to be right. Via Heat Street Ugh.

Paul Ryan Offers to Step Down as RNC Convention Chair
Paul Ryan is scheduled to be the chair at the RNC Convention this July in Cleveland – a convention that will almost certainly see the nomination of Donald Trump. Given the furor over Ryan’s remarks in which he said that he was not able to support Donald Trump – at least not yet – Ryan is apparently offering to step down from that role. | Read More »
PJ O’Rourke Endorses Hillary Clinton
Conservative/Libertarian humorist P.J. O’Rourke has endorsed Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump, in his own inimitable way. Echoing the calculus that many conservatives have made over the last week, O’Rourke quipped on NPR that Hillary Clinton is the “second worst thing that can happen to this country.” Unfortunately for Donald Trump, he’s in first place, by a mile. Clinton, he declared, was “the second worst thing | Read More »
