Here Are 5 Reasons Bill Clinton’s Leftist Labor Secretary Would Pick Trump Over Cruz
In a rather pointed Facebook post to his followers, former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich appears to be favoring Billionaire Donald Trump’s candidacy over that of Sen. Ted Cruz. In what the Left could only consider an attack on Cruz, Reich inadvertently gives Cruz higher points than Trump on issues that matter to most Republicans. Here is Reich’s post in its entirety, with emphasis added. | Read More »
Chris Cuomo tells Republicans “You Reap What You Sow”
Chris Cuomo, whose career as a journalist can best be described as a terrible live action role play, was interviewing Glenn Beck about all things Donald Trump, when he told Beck that Republicans “reap what they sow” when it comes to the billionaire business mogul. His logic is that the Republicans are always harping on about opposing government. So, Donald Trump is our fault. Cuomo: | Read More »
Myth BusTED: Ted Cruz actually isn’t falling in Iowa
The results of a political poll are deep and complex. We tend to boil them down very simply though, because most of the time we’re polling two-way, winner-take-all elections. Those races are generally zero-sum games between the candidates. The Iowa Caucuses however are as far from a two-way winner-take-all election as you can get. They’re a multi-way contest with proportional results. So the usual heuristics | Read More »
President Trump’s White House will be full of Katrina Piersons
Donald Trump is an unserious candidate who is dominating the Republican race for president through his capitalization of fear and civil unrest. The people who work for Trump on this campaign are just as unserious as he is. Take, for example, Katrina Pierson, who is the spokeswoman for the Trump Campaign. As far as unserious goes, Pierson’s own Twitter account is a veritable stockpile of | Read More »
I reject Donald Trump and would never vote for him. Here’s why.
I know it’s flabbergasting that a RedState contributor would oppose Donald Trump, and instead support candidates that RedState has supported and loved for years: Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. But I have reasons that I will never support Donald Trump in an election (primary or general), and he can never even get my vote. Here’s why.
CRUZ: Establishment moving to Trump because Rubio has no chance (VIDEO)
It’s a bold statement, but Ted Cruz is making it. The GOP establishment begins by anointing Jeb Bush, who fails miserably, so they move over to Marco Rubio. Now, they see Rubio floundering, so they are headed to Donald Trump. Ted is positioning himself as beholden to no one, while the other candidates will be beholden to the establishment in the end. He said all | Read More »
Bernie Sanders Is Absolutely Right
On Sunday night, Bernie Sanders attacked Hillary Clinton on her ties to Wall Street, specifically saying that she is too close to the major corporations of Wall Street. Check, for example, her speaking fees. Sanders pinpointed on Goldman Sachs, which is the usual name tossed out whenever the causes of the 2008 financial crisis are brought up. “I don’t get personal speaking fees from Goldman Sachs,” | Read More »
17 days away from Iowa: Can Rubio or Cruz stump Trump?
We’re 17 days from the Iowa caucuses. As Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio look to stump Donald Trump, who currently holds a very slim lead in Iowa and a 15 point margin in the national polling average, let’s compare how Trump stands, with previous frontrunners this far out. Can Trump be beaten this late in the game?
Fox Debate: Did you catch Ted Cruz using the establishment to defend himself?
Last night’s debate’s real utility was in Ted Cruz and Donald Trump jockeying for position in Iowa. Sure other candidates were on stage, notably Marco Rubio as he seeks to survive the first few states, but this was the first genuine, face-to-face clash between Cruz and Trump. And in the fight over Trump’s birther nonsense, Cruz was more than happy to enlist the establishment’s darlings | Read More »
The New York Daily News a little sore over Cruz’s comments
The New York Daily News is a bit upset with Ted Cruz over what he called “New York values.” They are not amused that their politics, which are largely abyssmal by the conservative standards that Cruz was measuring them against, are not good enough for Cruz. The stereotype of the tough, don’t-mess-with-me New York denizen falters in the face of such whining. They are so | Read More »
Iowa polling: Is Ted Cruz holding up against Donald Trump?
It’s amazing to me how little polling there actually is of Iowa right now. We’re about two weeks away from the caucuses, but according to Real Clear Politics as of this writing, there have only been six polls this year. So when we’re ‘ooh’ing and ‘ahh’ing at the rough-and-tumble between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, we don’t actually have very many data points to look | Read More »
The Establishment Revolution
Last night, after Nikki Haley’s response to the existence of Donald Trump (and Barack Obama’s speech, too), the most remarkable thing happened. People started calling Nikki Haley – yes, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley – a member of the “Establishment,” the shadow organization of Republican operatives who work to stifle the conservative movement. Think about that. Nikki Haley. Establishment. What? In the Donald Trump Era of | Read More »
Myth BUSTED: Steve Hoffman shows Ted Cruz can win by expanding the base
I’m old enough to remember the hand wringing. The GOP must reach out to libertarians, they said. Young people are too libertarian for the GOP, was the claim. When we at RedState banned Ron Paul supporters, we were told we were part of the problem, keeping the GOP from ever winning again, because Paul was reaching an ‘untapped strain’ of voter. Well, here we are | Read More »
Trump is so scared of losing Iowa to Cruz, he’s wetting his pants
Donald Trump was on Face the Nation, and had an epic tantrum. Right now he’s so scared of losing to Ted Cruz, he’s having to lash out in ridiculous ways. It’s interesting seeing what Trump looks like when he’s behind, he knows he’s behind, and he’s wetting-his-pants scared of being the big, fat loser.
2015 In Review: Best Music
If you’re a music junkie, then 2015 was not the most terrible year. While there were really only a few major releases, there were plenty of solid ones for you to enjoy (assuming you haven’t already). Here is the best music of 2015, just in time for you to listen to while waiting for the best music of 2016 (which may just be limited to | Read More »
