Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% remains a conservative favorite in 2016. In 2012, the establishment backed his Senate opponent in Texas, then Lt. Governor David Dewhurst. The conservative grassroots backed Cruz and pushed him over the finish line. Cruz has since remained a favorite of the grassroots with a continually antagonist relationship with the Republican establishment. In 2010, [mc_name name=’Sen. Rand Paul | Read More »
Resetting with Russia Did Wonders
As Hillary Clinton kicks off her campaign with vague promises of helping lift families out of despair and making America strong again, it is necessary for us to look back at her accomplishments in life. As such, perhaps it is time we put her accomplishments on a milk carton in the hopes that someone will find them. Of her numerous botches as Secretary of State, | Read More »
Your Laugh For the Day
To be fair, David Corn has been one of the Clinton critics from the left. But he will fall in line as she solidifies her nomination. That may mean, for him, that he turns his fire on the right and bites his tongue about Hillary, but it will happen. That is why I find this to be so funny. You and I both know the | Read More »
Road Tripping Across America: Hilarity With Hillary
“For the next 18 months, Hillary Clinton is going to be the Jim Henson of the political press. Her hand will be all the way up their collective rectum moving their lips to sing ‘It’s Not Easy Being Queen’.”I was wrong. I was convinced Hillary Clinton would not run for President. I assumed she’d be, in essence, the bullet proof vest of the Democratic Party. | Read More »
I, for one, agree with @HillaryClinton
Today, Hillary Clinton announced her big news – she’s running for president in 2016. I know, guys, you’re as shocked as I am. Here’s the thing, though: In the video where she announces her intentions, she says something I really agree with: “When our families are strong, America is strong.” I, as a conservative and general supporter of strong families, agree with the former Secretary | Read More »
Hillary Clinton’s Consultants’ Consultants’ Interns Announce Hillary Is Running to Subsidize Dem Consultants
Three hours later than the press had told us she would announce, Hillary announced what everyone knew — she is running to subsidize Democratic consultants who’ve been left on the sidelines while Team Chicago ran things. Oh, she’s running for President too. Hope, change, and all that — her logo is a bit Trauma Hospital. A blue H with a red arrow, it almost suggests, | Read More »
Ted Cruz will have the money to compete.
There are only four words we need to take away from this Bloomberg report about Ted Cruz SuperPAC fundraising: Thirty one million dollars. I don’t know whether he will win or not, but Ted Cruz will be able to raise the money to compete in this Presidential primary season.
Though not yet announcing a Presidential campaign, Governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas is coming out pretty forcefully on dealing with national security and Islamic terrorism. He has a piece here at RedState this morning on the very issue. He’s also out with a new video on the subject — one that I think resonates. As someone who hates snakes, I’ll have nightmares from the video, | Read More »
Thank You, Senator Paul
I hope the other Republicans candidates say what Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 80% said today. In Kentucky, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 80% pointed out both Republicans and Democrats have been driving up spending. He said Republicans cannot win by being Democrat-lite, but they too have contributed to the national debt. It is true. And it is something the GOP | Read More »
Surprise! The Rand Paul Store Blatantly Caters to the Paranoid
Well, surprise surprise, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 80% is officially running for President. However, in the category of actually surprising news, Paul’s basic argument for his primary candidacy is… that he’s the most electable candidate in the field. Seriously. Paul gave a sneak peak into what his message will be in a pre-announcement video that has been prominently featured on the influential conservative | Read More »
Welcome to the Arena, Senator Paul
Today, in Kentucky, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 80% is going to announce his campaign for President of the United States. In 2010, when I backed Senator Paul in the primary, I got an enormous amount of grief from many conservatives and Republicans who did not like Senator Paul’s father and assumed that Senator Paul would be a clone of his father. I | Read More »
Scott Walker Flip Flops on Immigration Stance?
Is Governor Walker for amnesty, securing the border, a pathway to citizenship, or is he against it? The answer is clearly yes. Confused? So am I. It was only a few weeks ago that the Presidential Candidate in waiting was on Fox News Sunday emphatically stating his new firm position on immigration and border security. “My view has changed. I’m flat out saying it, candidates | Read More »
