Donald Trump Blasts Iconic Conservative Newspaper for Standing Against Him!

The National Review took a hard stand against Donald Trump’s liberal policies this week and now they’re facing his wrath. On Friday the GOP frontrunner countered by arguing that the National Review was a “dying paper” whose circulation was “way down.” “The National Review is a dying dying paper. It’s circulation is way down. Not very many people read him anymore. People don’t even think about The National Review. I guess they want to get a little publicity. But that’s a dying paper. I got to Read more […]

Ted Cruz Kicks Liberals to the Curb with ‘Apology’ for his ‘New York Values’ Comment

During Thursday night’s Republican debate, there was a contentious exchange between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump, in which Cruz accused Trump of holding “New York values.” Bristling at such an accurate accusation, Trump used 9/11 as a shield. Trump’s acolytes applauded, and Twitter erupted with 9/11 dedication memes–because we all know Ted Cruz hates the victims and heroes who died on 9/11. Trump’s shamefully obvious dodge was apparent to some–people with brain matter. But the world is cruel, and Read more […]

Why Did Fox Bar Rand Paul From the Debate?

Jeb Bush was up on stage. And John what’s-his-name from Ohio. (Is he still running?) But Rand Paul didn’t “qualify” to be at the grown up table. He got demoted to the kids’ table. That was the first time that the Senator didn’t make it to the main stage. And he refused to participate in the second tier debate, because in his words, he’s got a “first tier campaign.” By participating in the undercard debate, he’d be accepting his second tier status that the media have assigned to Read more […]

Alleged Conservatives with IQs Praise Trump’s Nauseating 9/11 Non-Answer; Say it Damaged Ted Cruz

There were a lot of punches and jabs during the Republican debate Thursday: Rubio hit Cruz with an avalanche of BS accusations in a single statement, knowing full well Cruz could never respond to even one of them in the time allotted, and Trump and Cruz duked it out over citizenship. But there was one moment that made me sick to my stomach. Not because of content, per se, but because of the reaction and applause it garnered from the audience and pundits. Moderator Maria Bartiromo asked Cruz about Read more […]

Ted Cruz is Eligible for the Presidency, Part 2

In part one, I wrote about the legal case for Ted Cruz’s “natural born” status. I’m not an attorney, but as constitutional scholars are duking it out, the people I trust–as well as some I don’t even know–continue to come down on Cruz’s side, like former Solicitors General Neal Katyal and Paul Clement, Mark Levin, and Judge Andrew Napolitano. I echoed their arguments, and I noted U.S. law, which appears quite clear. I think the left, as well as those who are trying to take a hatchet to Cruz–Trump, Read more […]

Socialist Bernie Sanders: Living in a Mansion Like the White House Would be Like “Public Housing”

During a Democratic Presidential forum, someone asked Bernie Sanders an interesting question:  “Is it off-brand for a Democratic socialist to live in a mansion like the White House?” Sanders responded, “I would consider it more like public housing.” While the first family does have to pick up the tab for some things such as food, they don’t have to pay rent, a mortgage, or utility bills. John F. Groom, author of The $1.4 Billion Man:  Costs of the Obama White House, broke down the Read more […]

Ted Cruz is Eligible for the Presidency, Part 1

How can you tell when a candidate has Washington–as well as his opponents–wholly terrified? When it’s only January, and a candidate is as bloody as Ted Cruz. It’s a 10-on-1 prison yard fight out there, and everyone’s out to get their shiv in. This isn’t only coming from the left either. In fact, the primary thrust of the blade is coming from the Republicans. Donald Trump spearheaded the Cruz Birther movement, and others have since piled on. John McCain said it should be looked into, attorneys Read more […]

Cruz: As President, I Won’t End Obamacare

This is just one of many differences between Cruz and Obama. What’s Obama’s way of handling things? If Congress won’t do what he wants, he issues executive orders. What’s the point of having a Constitution that delegates powers across three branches of government if the President is keen on acting as a dictator? The President stated that his gun control executive orders are “entirely consistent with the Second Amendment.” But the President can’t make laws. Remember, that’s supposed Read more […]

Will 2016 Mark the Death of Two-Party Politics?

Yay! After much searching, I finally stumbled on a reason for rejoicing in the 2016 election—it might mark the death of two-party politics. Most of us thought we would never see this day. We thought upending the two-party system would take a charismatic third-party candidate with cross-over appeal to sweep the middle voters off their feet. But it turns out there is another way for the GOP-DNC hydra to be conquered: it can commit suicide. More and more, the 2016 election year is looking like Read more […]

Why Does Breitbart Continue to Push Trump When He’s Not a Conservative? Answer…

“Politics are very much like war. We may even have to use poison gas at times.” – Winston Churchill As one of few remaining anti-establishment websites with strong traffic, Breitbart has become the de facto leader of conservative news online. While sites like The Daily Caller, National Review, Hot Air, Town Hall, and The Washington Examiner slowly transform into mouthpieces for establishment politicians, Breitbart has remained a stalwart anti-establishment voice. Due to their aggressive push to Read more […]

Ben Carson and Donald Trump: The Accidental Bully and the Oscar Wilde Gentleman

The GOP has a reputation for being filled with a bunch of great big old meanies. In the past few days, Donald Trump and Ben Carson have been both accidentally and intentionally feeding that reputation. Let’s begin with poor Ben Carson who, in an apparent attempt to create rapport with a group of fifth-graders, encouraged them to point out the worst student in their class. Carson has long told a story about how he himself was the worst student in fifth grade, but this attempt to relate that Read more […]

Cruz Takes Trap-Question About Deportation, and Blows it Out of the Water

“No legacy is so rich as honesty.” – William Shakespeare We’ve developed into a society in which honesty is the most hated value. Honesty often acts as a knife, paring away deception that’s been carefully layered over the truth. That can be tremendously painful, and as a result, we’ve essentially let go of honesty, and replaced it with lies. We are masterful liars. We lie because it benefits us personally, or it makes the people to whom we’re lying feel better. In the end, however, a lie is damaging Read more […]
