Dear Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio: CUT IT OUT
Ted Cruz placed third in the Nevada %^&*show caucuses last night, and his campaign’s first act was to send out a fundraiser email attacking Marco Rubio, who came in second. Not Donald Trump, who came in first, but Marco Rubio. I have never once questioned the authenticity of Ted Cruz, nor have I questioned his devotion to The Cause we all fight for – namely, | Read More »
Look In Trump’s Eyes. What Do You See?
You can take any speech given by Donald Trump – assuming you can understand the order of words which are coming out of his mouth, which is a Herculean task in and of itself – and replace the text of the speech with the lyrics to the phenomenal “Cult of Personality” by Living Colour without losing anything. Because that’s all that Donald Trump’s campaign is | Read More »
Marco Rubio is this generation’s greatest salesman for conservative ideas
I’ve never hidden who I like in the 2016 Presidential race. I was thrilled to enter this cycle because there were so many candidates I could support fully, including guys like Bobby Jindal and Rick Perry. Two of my favorites are still in the race: Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. My reasons for supporting Cruz I discussed in a previous post, but here’s why I | Read More »
How Did This Even Happen? Cruz/Rubio Bible Spat Demonstrates Our Problem.
A day after Marco Rubio narrowly defeated Ted Cruz for second place in the South Carolina primary, the Cruz campaign put up a video saying Rubio dismissed the Bible as “not having many answers in it.” The video caused an uproar as many struggled to get a hot take out there damning Rubio for saying such a thing. Meanwhile, anyone who has followed Rubio and | Read More »
If He Wins, Do We Stand With Trump?
It’s the million dollar question as we look to the possibility that Donald Trump is somehow the nominee: Do we as Republicans stand with him? Do we circle the wagons? Do we overlook everything in his past and say “You know what? Better than a Democrat.” The answer, for me at least, is decidedly “No.” This is an answer that I have evolved to. But, | Read More »
After South Carolina, It’s Time To Get Serious
Right now, in the e-mails of many pundits, politicians, and strategists, a question is being asked: What the hell do we do now? Donald Trump won South Carolina by ten points over Marco Rubio and Rubio was only slightly over Ted Cruz. Jeb Bush has conceded that he has no path to victory. John Kasich wants to be Trump’s vice president. Ben Carson is still | Read More »
Every attack on Ted Cruz bolsters my support for him
I’ve never hidden who I like in the 2016 Presidential race. I was thrilled to enter this cycle because there were so many candidates I could support fully, including guys like Bobby Jindal and Rick Perry. Two of my favorites are still in the race: Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. My reasons for supporting Rubio I will discuss in a future post, but here’s why | Read More »
Hillary Dusts Off Her Fake Black Accent to Talk About Al Sharpton
Is she doing bad southern? Or is she being racist? You decide: Will Sharpton endorse Clinton? Her response. pic.twitter.com/mNKHkOAgf9 — Annie Karni (@anniekarni) February 16, 2016 “Oh, stewardess! I speak jive.” Really, Hillary? I mean seriously? Again? But then again … They just really can’t help themselves, can they? I mean, it’s not like the media will ever call them on it.
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 »
Donald Trump’s Lame Attempt to Push Back on Eminent Domain
There is a difference between the use of eminent domain for public use and eminent domain for private use. In normal society, the conversation actually ends there. In normal society, that’s the end of this post. But, we don’t live in a society that recognizes the difference between public good and private gain. There are segments of society – all of whom flock to the | Read More »
OPEN THREAD: The South Carolina GOP Debate
Tonight, the remaining GOP candidates will take the stage once more and debate on (hopefully) the issues that really matter. The debate comes mere hours after the news that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia passed away at the age of 79 years. This will undoubtedly lead to questions about the nomination process, who they would pick to replace Scalia should the Senate hold its ground | Read More »

There are several different storylines going into tonight, and each of them will hit their climax during the debate. 1.

BREAKING: Jim Gilmore To Suspend Campaign
One of the most charismatic men of the 2016 campaign, a victim of both circumstance and Donald Trump, Jim Gilmore was never given a chance. But, here is Jim Gilmore being awesome. However, The Hill is reporting that Gilmore is set to exit a stage he was never really on. “My campaign was intended to offer the gubernatorial experience, with the track record of a true | Read More »
John Kasich Lies About God [WATCH]
Politicians tell a lot of whoppers, but some are obviously more blatant or galling than others. In John Kasich’s case, he doesn’t think small and goes straight for the top, as part of a smear against his opponents and a lie about himself. Take a look: First, this article from the Wall Street Journal, hilariously titled ““Kasich: I’m a Conservative, But I Won’t Play the | Read More »
We all knew this candidate was taking cues from the Nixon administration
Republicans have pretty thoroughly repudiated Richard Nixon by this point. We’re less friendly with China, we’re less friendly to creating new agencies like EPA, and we sure aren’t breaking into Democrat offices. Importantly, starting with Ronald Reagan, and continuing with George W. Bush, we recognized that when we face ideological actors, sometimes Realpolitik doesn’t have all the answers. So it turns out the Democrats are | Read More »
