As Between Trump and Clinton, Gary Johnson (or Austin Petersen) is the Best Choice for President

I’ve said this a million times and I’ll say it again: I don’t owe Donald Trump, the Republican party, or anyone else my vote. Every election cycle, they have to earn it. I never signed a loyalty oath or a contract to always vote for the Republican, and even if I did, such a contract would be void as a matter of law, as it | Read More »

BREAKING: Is John Kasich Suspending His Campaign?

There’s a market for bad polls showing Trump competitive with Hillary Clinton. Guess who is jumping in?

No Tolerance for Former Candidates Who Support Nominee Trump

Despite what the pro-Trump crowd concludes about last night, the #NeverTrump crowd isn’t going away. Those of us who have always believed never actually means never aren’t suddenly deciding to “unite” around Trump, though RNC chairman Reince Priebus commands that. Too many “principled” conservatives are falling victim to the groupthink which says you must coalesce around the person with (R) next to their name. This letter means nothing when | Read More »

Indiana reminds us: Polling remains dead

So before the results came in from Indiana, I pointed out that Indiana looked winnable for Cruz, and looked at the ways the polls had gotten it badly wrong in neighboring states, ways that grossly underestimated one candidate or another. Turns out they grossly underestimated Donald Trump.

An Open Letter To Reince Priebus On Unity

Last night, after Ted Cruz dropped his bid for the White House and conservatives were left with the inevitable sinking feeling that Donald Trump was going to represent the GOP in the 2016 Presidential election, Reince Priebus took to Twitter and issue the following statement: .@realDonaldTrump will be presumptive @GOP nominee, we all need to unite and focus on defeating @HillaryClinton #NeverClinton — Reince Priebus | Read More »

Republicans Should Confirm Merrick Garland ASAP.

Now that Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee, this is not even a close call.

Trump Is Terrible. So Is Hillary. Count Me In As #NeverHillary

Trump Is Terrible. So Is Hillary. Count Me In As #NeverHillary

I will never vote for Hillary Clinton. I just want to make that clear. There will never be a ballot in my name with a checkmark or a hole punched ...

BREAKING: Nikki Haley Says, “Cross Me Of The VP List”

Trump’s search for a running mate is going to be fun to watch. Fun in that it’s going to be hilarious watching person after person after person after person after person say “No.” And we are seeing the first, officially. While Trump hasn’t asked Nikki Haley (and he will no doubt now attack her and claim he never considered her at all), she has gotten | Read More »

OBAMA’S URINATION ADMINISTRATION: New Video SLAMS President For Stupid, Reckless Priorities

There is a lot going on in the world. Just yesterday, a Navy Seal was shot and killed by ISIS terrorists in Iraq. A combat death, you see. Russia is challenging our authority, and will do so even more with their pet candidate taking the nomination. Terror on the rise. Jobs. The economy. The debt. Even American drinking water. All under threat. So what is | Read More »

Here’s Why I Can’t Unite Behind Trump, Even to Beat Hillary (VIDEO)

Today I had the privilege of being on CNNi opposite Matt Schlapp of the ACU, who made what I thought was the best possible case for uniting behind Trump. Unfortunately, it was utterly unconvincing to me, because it doesn’t really address the core concerns that many #NeverTrump people have with Trump.   The problem isn’t that Trump is a liberal, because Schlapp is right that | Read More »

IT’S OFFICIAL: Kasich Formally Suspends His Campaign, Only Trump Remains [VIDEO]

That’s the ballgame folks. Donald Trump’s meteoric rise is complete. Here is Kasich’s official statement: There you have it. Kasich, who seems like a contender for Trump’s VP pick, is officially out. Like Sherman marching to the sea, Trump has successfully burned, destroyed, maimed and killed his way through the GOP, to what is probably stage one of the party’s ultimate demise. Nothing lasts forever.

Trump Defends Detestable Comments About Cruz’s Father

It was detestable, low, unbelievably uncouth, and typical Trump.

Meet the New, Not More Presidential, Even More Senile, ‘Presumptive Nominee’

You would think the victorious Donald would start the rest of his presidential campaign by being, well more presidential, than the amoral, misogynistic and lying candidate he has been. You might think that, but you would be wrong.

BYE GOP: Libertarian Party Registrations DOUBLE In Mass Exodus After Trump Win

It seems that a lot of people actually meant it when they said they would not support Donald Trump. And contrary to the bleating from Trump fans, that’s a perfectly legitimate position to which they have a right. Thus we are seeing a frenzy online of people abandoning the party, burning their GOP registrations and, in a few cases, joining a brand new gang. From | Read More »

The 2016 Primary Kingmaker will be at RSG16…will you?

Remember the days when only Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina mattered in the primary process? Those three states were unnecessarily given so much power to de facto pick the Republican nominee that by the time other states began to vote, the field had already narrowed to in many cases just a single candidate. Not very democratic when the majority of Americans have no say | Read More »

Conservative Security Experts Maintain #NeverTrump Status

“You could surround Donald Trump with 10 Henry Kissingers, and it wouldn’t matter, because Trump does not have the personal qualities to be a good, serious commander in chief. “

Andrea Mitchell NAILS It On Why Trump Wins: ‘Tweets Matter’

To be clear, Andrea Mitchell is usually wrong, and even in this case is mostly wrong, but she gets one thing so totally correct in this clip Mediaite highlights today that it hurts my brain. “Facts no longer matter. Tweets matter.” This is 100% correct. Trump voters vote for the lie that Trump tells them, not for what he actually is, or what he actually | Read More »

Donald Trump: “I’d Be Interested in Vetting John Kasich” for VP (VIDEO)

I mean, of course he would. Just now on CNN, Wolf Blitzer was interviewing Donald Trump, and asked the question we’ve all been thinking about John Kasich – is he in the running for Trump’s VP given that he’s been playing interference for Trump since New Hampshire? Trump seemed to say “yes.” Wolf Blitzer: CNN has just confirmed, John Kasich, the Ohio governor, he’s dropping out | Read More »
