Ted Cruz Throws Down the Gauntlet: Who Would Trump Pick as his VP?
In a normal election cycle, I think it would be perfectly appropriate for Trump to defer announcing his choice for VP, or even to describe what it might look like, until he sees fit, which might well be right before the convention. But we are living in unprecedented times with a race that is dragging on for an unprecedented length. And with Cruz flat out | Read More »
Someone Put Mike Pence on a Milk Carton
Mike Pence likes to portray himself as a warrior for conservative causes – as a hard line conservative who can get things done. There’s almost no question that he has Presidential ambitions in the future and when he runs, he’s going to try to position himself as Ted Cruz, but with executive experience. Well, unexpectedly, Indiana has become ground zero for the Republican party’s existential | Read More »
Here’s Why John Kasich is the Dumbest Man in America
John Kasich has a plan for winning the Presidency: he hopes to make his case at the convention that he is the best candidate to take on Hillary, and get the nomination in the event of an unresolvable deadlock between Cruz and Kasich supporters. The main thing standing in the way of that goal? The John Kasich campaign. People point this out to John Kasich | Read More »
7/11 is More Evidence of Trump’s Age-Related Cognitive Impairment

5 Reasons Ted Cruz Is The Best Choice For President
I think it is clear at this point, the entire editorial staff RedState is opposed to a Trump GOP nomination and I’m not sure any of them could make a convincing case, even to me, why he’d be a better President than Hillary Clinton.

Trump Threatens “Rough Convention” if He Doesn’t Win
He’s definitely not signaling to his supporters that he wants violence, though. Neither he nor Roger Stone is doing so. Why would you even suggest such a thing? Per the Washington Post: SYRACUSE, N.Y. — In his ever-escalating fight with the Republican National Committee, Donald Trump warned Saturday that party leaders should reform its system for selecting a nominee or face a “rough July” when | Read More »

But thankfulness for past service only goes so far, and Rush’s program yesterday officially crossed the line. When I think about | Read More »

Texas Cruz Birther Case Decided
Another birther case challenging Sen. Ted Cruz’ eligibility to be president has been thrown out. This time it was a federal judge in Texas that did the honors.

Trump has it All Wrong, it’s Lying Don
The next time you hear Donald Trump refer to Sen. Ted Cruz as “lying Ted,” think about that old saying that when you point your finger at someone, you point three fingers back at yourself. That saying is a yuuuge understatement when it comes the multitude of outrageous misstatements, falsehoods, prevarications and outright lies the Donald has used in his attempt to obtain the Republican presidential nomination.
