A Few Reasons for Why Donald Trump

The scare tactics of the Cruz SuperPacs will try to tell you Mr. Trump will appoint liberal justices to the Supreme Court, won't support the Bill of Rights, (including the 1st & 2nd Amendments).  Then, they'll tell you, "He can't/won't beat Hillary", which should lead you to question how does Trump do all these terrible things when he loses to Hillary?

The facts are, they're all lies.  They're all scare tactics designed to prevent Mr. Trump from achieving the 1,237 delegates state after state is awarding him.

Ted Cruz and his SuperPacs, (special interest billionaires who have run the Establishment Cartel in Washington D.C. for decades---depositing their money to both Republicans and Democrats who will toe the line), are in
a desperate mode.  They see their control over the political process slipping away, and they will lie, cheat, and steal to maintain their most prized possession, control over YOU, THE PEOPLE.

As the sign says at the top, "If no party likes you, you're probably doing something right".  It's time to tell the Washington politicians we've had enough.

A vote for Donald Trump is a vote for real change.  No one, (or special interest/puppet-masters), will control the White House, which is what the Establishment fears the most.  Don't listen to the lies and deceit from both the left and the right.  Take your country back, and you will "Make America Great Again".

And, make no mistake---Donald Trump Will Defeat Hillary! 

Tuesday, March 22, 2016


On the first official day of spring, three U.S. political events happened yesterday, that could be called monumental---and they involved a present, past, and future President:

1) President Obama visited the Communist Republic of Cuba, and there's no other way to say it; in the company of military dictator Raul Castro, Obama embarrassed himself and this nation:
Obama Welcomes Castro's Criticism of America: 'I Personally Would Not Disagree'  3:21 PM, MAR 21, 2016 | By DANIEL HALPER 
"President Castro, I think, has pointed out that in his view making sure that everybody is getting a decent education or health care, has basic security and old age, that those things are human rights as well. I personally would not disagree with him," Obama said.  (link to video and text)

2) Just a few hours later, (at a political event in Spokane, Washington), former President Bill Clinton, while campaigning for his wife Hillary, described this current administration as an "awful legacy".
Bill Clinton Trashes Obama: 'Awful Legacy of the Last Eight Years'
5:01 PM, MAR 21, 2016 | By DANIEL HALPER 
"But if you believe we can all rise together, if you believe we've finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us and the seven years before that where we were practicing trickle-down economics with no regulation in Washington, which is what caused the crash, then you should vote for her.  (link to video & text)
3) Finally, just when the media and political pundits began screaming Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump needed to act "more presidential", the man stepped up to the podium at AIPAC and hit it out of the park---garnering more standing ovations from the Jewish community leaders than the rest of the speakers, combined.  Here's a few excerpts from Mr. Trump's speech:
"I didn’t come here tonight to pander to you about Israel. That’s what politicians do: all talk, no action. I came here to speak to you about where I stand on the future of American relations with our strategic ally, our unbreakable friendship, and our cultural brother, the only democracy in the Middle East, the State of Israel." 
"It’s not up the United Nations to impose a solution. The parties must negotiate a resolution themselves. The United States can be useful as a facilitator of negotiations, but no one should be telling Israel it must abide by some agreement made by others thousands of miles away that don’t even really know what’s happening." 
"When I’m president, believe me, I will veto any attempt by the UN to impose its will on the Jewish state." 
"When I become President, the days of treating Israel like a second-class citizen will end on Day One." 
"You see, what President Obama gets wrong about deal making is that he constantly applies pressure to our friends and rewards our enemies. That pattern, practiced by the President and his administration, including former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, has repeated itself over and over and has done nothing but embolden those who hate America. We saw that with releasing $150 billion to Iran in the hope that they would magically join the world community – It’s the same with Israel and Palestine." 
"We will move the American embassy to the eternal capital of the Jewish people, Jerusalem – and we will send a clear signal that there is no daylight between America and our most reliable ally, the state of Israel." 
"The Palestinians must come to the table knowing that the bond between the United States and Israel is unbreakable. They must come to the table willing and able to stop the terror being committed on a daily basis against Israel and they must come to the table willing to accept that Israel is a Jewish State and it will forever exist as a Jewish State."  (link to video and text)
To summarize: current president Barack Obama listened to a brutal dictator admonish this nation for its treatment of Cuba and agreed with the S.O.B.

Former President Bill Clinton called the last eight years of this current administration "an awful legacy" while pretending his wife had nothing to do with the policies carried out during her tenure as the Secretary of State under Mr. Obama's directions.

And, finally, our potential future President, Donald Trump, did not mince words, or politically pander to the folks at AIPAC, while pointing out the dismal failures of previous administrations, and insisting his policies on the issue of Israel will be met from a position of strength---not by the weaknesses of past leadership that has put the Jewish nation in jeopardy.

It goes without saying, Mr. Trump's speech was very Presidential.

Donald Trump or Ted Cruz----What's an Establishment to Do Without Debates?

Dr. Krauthammer said on Special Report last night that the battle between the Establishment and the anti-Establishment is over, the anti-Establishment has won, based on the two remaining candidates who can still mathematically get to the magic number of 1,237 delegates.  The current delegate count has Donald Trump at 678, Cruz at 423, and Kasich at 143, (with no mathematical path to the nomination).

On a special note, Trump put an unofficial end to the debates by refusing to go another round with Fox and the Fox moderators, Wallace, Baier, and Kelly.  With the Kelly File running nightly anti-Trump screeds, it's understandable why Mr. Trump has indicated enough is enough, but this cancellation didn't sit well with the folks at Fox.  In almost a retaliatory mode, Fox arranges an hour-long town-hall with Ted Cruz, (hosted by Hannity), and Bret Baier announces that on Monday's Special Report, they'll have both Cruz and Kasich live on the program. At this posting, I've read nothing about Fox extending any kind of invitation to the Republican front-runner.  Most of you can draw your own conclusions as to how Fox can be a neutral observer going forward, but make no mistake, Fox, (and all of the cable nets), have always been a friend to the Establishment and the status quo political machine in Washington.  After this latest Kelly-Trump kerfuffle, we'll have to see who owns the "obsession" title in the weeks ahead.

Fairness Update:  It appears Mr. Hannity will attempt to host an event with Donald Trump on Saturday morning. 

Sean Hannity and 2016 GOP front-runner Donald Trump will be in Phoenix, AZ for an exclusive event and you can be a part of it!

Seating will be based on a first come, first served basis and capped at 1300. 

Saturday, March 19, 2016 from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM (MST) Phoenix Convention Center - South Ballroom 33 S 3rd St, Phoenix, AZ 85004
We'll have to see if the protesters get up early enough to mount another "offensive assault" on free speech.  Either way, this little "parlay" should be interesting since Hannity appears to be the last man standing* among the Fox folks to have a "favorability" rating with all of the candidates.

One-way Tolerance

Trump Wins Big on Super Tuesday ll ---- Media Regurgitates Contested Convention

Donald Trump stormed his way to huge Super-Tuesday ll, decimating Marco Rubio in Florida, picking up wins in North Carolina and Illinois, and holding on to a slim lead in Missouri, adding to the Republican front-runner's delegate total............

......But, don't tell the Media!

Scanning the headlines of our beloved Media, readers must have the impression there's a funeral going on in the race for the White House, as the major online News outlets, (both liberal and "semi-conservative"), continued their all-out anti-Trump tirades.  For the record, this writer posted last night, (as the returns began to come in), that the Media would be moving the Trump goal post fervently by the end of the night.  They did not disappoint.

On a night where the success of any other Presidential candidate would have been touted as a monumental, definitive, and possessing a clear advantage, the mainstream media miserably stumbled and fell short of the finish line in what used to be called honest journalism.  The narrative of the night quickly evolved into the media's lust for a contested convention in Cleveland, along with the pundits providing delusional, (and unsustainable) paths for the other two remaining candidates, Ted Cruz and one-state winner John Kasich.

At least pollster Scott Rasmussen had the balls this morning to come out and tell the truth: "Everyone knows the Establishment hates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz", (paraphrased), which is the reason the Media is desperately holding on to hopes for a brokered or contested convention---money in their pockets, and, writing about the mania of the anti-Trump forces.

For the last two nights, 94% of the big three media outlets blamed Trump for the trouble in Chicago, and not the agitators/protesters.  Throughout the week, Republican anti-Trump Super-PACS spent over 10 million in negative, (and sometimes despicable), advertising against the front-runner.  Even the Elite Circus Power-Brokers were befuddled.

Yet, with all the vitriolic and disparaging efforts of the anti-Trump forces, the voters had the last word.  And, even while the once simi-conservative folks at Fox News tried to bring up the suggestion of a contested convention, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich dashed their hopes: 

Pure Gold----Gingrich schools Bret Baier on why there won't be a contested convention. "Worst case scenario : Trump and Cruz will join forces to defeat the Establishment".
Baier looks on like some one just told him his dog died.

(Note: I like Bret Baier, and consider him the most honest journalist on the Fox News team.  That said, Fox's dreams of a Rubio triumph in Florida disappeared early on the night, and left the Fox folks with one last desperate narrative---a contested convention.  Gingrich literally blew that theory out of the water, and seriously, the look on Baier's face was priceless, and, unfortunately there was no video of a Megyn Kelly look).

After last night, Donald Trump now has a clear path to an uncontested nomination.

Just don't tell the Media.

First Amendment Takes a Back Seat in Chicago

On the same day that First Lady Nancy Reagan was laid to rest after enduring 94 years of a relatively free America, Fascism raised its ugly head in the City of Chicago.

As a Donald Trump rally was about to begin inside the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion, a "well-organized" group of protesters showed up and began to filter into the building, while hundreds remained outside in the streets, vowing to shut down the rally. Reportedly, over 20,000 people had showed up to listen to the Presidential front-runner. The tension was high enough for Donald Trump to cancel the rally out of concern for everyone's safety---"I didn't want to see anyone get hurt"---but the decimation of the peoples right to assemble was complete. The thugs won.

Reports came in that the left-wing group of Move-on-dot-org had organized and promoted the protest to specifically shut down the rally. While the Chicago City police outside attempted to maintain peace, State officers and Secret Service inside became concerned with the anti-Trump protesters plans to disrupt the rally, and after consulting the the Trump campaign, the decision to cancel the rally was made.

Interviews by the media of the outside protesters, (many carrying Bernie Sanders signs) revealed the intent to shut down the rally was the argument that this was Trump's fault for his stances on illegal immigration and calling for a temporary ban on importing Syrian refugees until they were properly vetted. People who had bought tickets and waited in line for hours to see Mr. Trump never got into the Pavilion, causing more frustration, as the protesters marched past them, and began to enter the building.

Shouts of "We won, we shut down Trump" were heard throughout the night, but, did they, [the protesters], really win? Or, was the people's First amendment rights to peacefully assemble and be heard lost to the thousands who had come to listen to Mr. Trump.  Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich didn't mince words in describing the tumultuous affair:
To make matters worse, the cable nets and the mainstream media piled onto the "blame Trump" rhetoric, but failed to see the irony of First Amendment rights getting stomped into the ground.  Check out these headlines and judge for yourself:

Fox News Headline: 

RIVALS PLAY OFFENSE: Republican contenders point fingers at Trump
for chaotic scene at Chicago rally

MSNBC Online Headlines:

Rivals accuse Trump of encouraging violence

Trump rhetoric escalates aggression

Standing up against Donald Trump

CNN Online Main Headline: Trump Tensions Erupt

Surprisingly, the New York Times appeared to write a more fair and balanced assessment of what occurred:
"CHICAGO — With thousands of people already packed into stands and music blaring to warm up the crowd, Donald J. Trump’s campaign abruptly canceled his rally here on Friday night over security concerns as protesters clashed with his supporters inside an arena where he was to speak. 
Minutes after Mr. Trump was to have taken to a podium on the campus of a large, diverse public university just west of downtown, an announcer suddenly pronounced the event over before it had begun. Hundreds of protesters, who had promised to be a visible presence here and filled several sections of the arena, let out an elated, unstopping cheer. Mr. Trump’s supporters, many of whom had waited hours to see the Republican front-runner, seemed stunned and slowly filed out in anger." 
Mr. Trump’s opponents, Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Ted Cruz and Gov. John Kasich, condemned the disruptions, but said Mr. Trump was responsible for the tenor of his rallies. Mr. Cruz said Mr. Trump “affirmatively encourages violence.” 
The University of Illinois at Chicago draws a significant share of students from Chicago’s neighborhoods, and has a large number of international students, and planned protests were publicized on social media. Around 10,000 people had signed up on Facebook to take part in one anti-Trump march. Scores of faculty members had pleaded with administrators over allowing the rally in a letter, which read, in part: “We also request that the university publicly distance itself from the event and make a statement that the Trump rally is an anathema to the mission of U.I.C.”
It certainly sounds like the University of Illinois and Donald Trump's Republican opponents are on the same page.  

(Note: I will not post a photo of the despicable thugs who shut down freedom of speech last night---they deserve no credit or recognition.)

Trump Wins Mississippi, Michigan, & Hawaii---Reverses Media Narrative of a Slumping Candidate (UPDATE--VIDEO ADDED)

In what can be only described as "Campaign Surge", Donald Trump took a huge step forward last night* in solidifying his lead in the Republican Presidential Primary.  Winning 3 out of 4 states, Trump called for unity within the party during his victory speech in Florida. 
"This was an amazing evening. I don’t think I’ve ever had so many horrible things said about me in one week," Trump said at press conference in Jupiter, Fla., a week before the state's primary. "It shows you how brilliant the public is because they knew they were lies. 
"The bottom line is we have something going that's so good," the GOP presidential front-runner said. "We should grab each other and we should unify the party."
But the folks at Fox News refuse to accept the reality of a Trump nomination. On a special edition of "The Five", Eric Bolling led off the monologue with a scathing indictment of the Establishment wing of the Republican party.  It, [Bolling's statement], did not sit well with two other regulars, Dana Perino & Greg Gutfeld, who were clearly, (and personally), offended by the reference to the Establishment.  

Ms. Perino seemed especially upset at the contention that "hard working politicians" in Washington were some how worthless parasites feeding on the system, and not heeding to the will of the people who elected them.  She was visibly upset and did not hesitate to rebut Bolling's statement.

Gutfeld, on the other hand, took the indignation a step further by attacking Trump followers with an "in your face" purpose/resolve.  Watch the video and decide for yourselves if Perino and Gutfeld don't seem a bit butthurt.

If you want to fast-forward to pertinant parts, Perino questions what the establishment is at 3:38 & Gutfeld's tirade starts at 6:12.

Not to be outdone in Fox's self-induced Trump Derangement Syndrome, (aka, TDS), Megyn Kelly interviewed Ted Cruz, and couldn't wait to bring up the idea of a contested convention.  I've decided not to provide video or links to this interview, since it's another clear sign of Fox's outright disdain for the Republican front-runner.

But, I do have a message for the media pundits still inflicted with TDS---George Will, Charles Krauthammer, Bill Kristol, Karl Rove, Gutfeld & Perino, Mitt Romney, the "esteemed" editors at the National Review, and the many more Anti-Trump contingency---grab hold of the notion of a President Trump, or seek medical & psychological attention at your soonest convenience.  There IS a cure for your indignant impulsions---it's called reality.  Grab hold.  

* How sad is it that a BBC linked story has a more honest assessment of this Presidential race, than most of the biased American Media with their own infliction of TDS?

The Many Faces of Donald Trump, (as explained by the loony media)

In just the past two weeks alone, the frenzied media and the political pundits have described Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump in so many different ways, one would need a library to define all the adjectives and nouns projected at the man.

If you skirt around the internet, (and the once "respected" news publications), no one gets closer to being the Political Anti-Christ (in their minds), as Donald Trump.  But, let's take a look at how Mr. Trump has evolved in such a short time---as described by the maniacal press---and make no mistake, the fear and desperation in the depictions of Mr. Trump are simply getting hilarious.

Recall, when Donald Trump first announced he was throwing his hat into the presidential ring, the pundits laughed and called him and his campaign "a clown act".  There was no way the public could take this Apprentice Game Show host seriously, and they brushed him aside like an NFL running-back does to a lineman in an open field.  But, let's digress for a moment.

As Trump's base and polling numbers began to rise, the political pundits were amused, yet hardly concerned.  He would fade away or self-implode any day now. No one could be so brash, insulting to the beltway establishment class, alienating to the political correctness society of the purist "conservative" right, and possibly survive, let alone sustain such an "indignant" campaign.  Right?


With twelve state victories under his belt, (leading in the polling in Michigan and Mississippi, and Idaho for today's March 8th primaries), and just six days away from the March 15th primaries, (where the winner takes all of the delegates), the pollsters and the media pundits are in full blown panic mode.  Despite what they're saying, if Trump wins both Florida and Ohio, the nomination is over.

In a Exclusive Statewide Poll was conducted by SurveyUSA from March 4-6, and released today, Trump not only leads in Florida, he beats Hillary Clinton in a general election, (according to Florida voters), and shockingly, neither Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio defeats Hillary.


For a man that's now described as Hitler, Mussolini, a xenophobic, and of course, a racist bigot, what else can the media pundits throw at him?

Howard Kurtz at Fox explains in great detail how the media pundits are doing their own impression of self-implosion in their feeble attempts to scare the public. According to these lunatics, you should be worried.

My guess is, after the 15th, The Donald will have a well-deserved message for the lamestream media, (on the left and the right) who've done such a "bang-up" job:

Can't Say it Much Better......

Megyn Kelly's Dirty Little Fabrication & The "Graphics"

(Via the Gateway Pundit)

During the Thursday night Republican debate, Fox's moderator Megyn Kelly had to frame a question to Donald Trump about Trump University.  She began by quoting how the private university had received a "D" rating from the Better Business Bureau, and worked in other terms such as "con man" and Bernie Maydoff, before finally asking Mr. Trump to respond.

During the "Kelly setup", Trump mentioned that in fact the university had later received an "A" rating, and her information was not completely correct.  Kelly would have nothing of that, insisting "there was no public evidence available" to support Trump's assertion of the revised rating.

During a break in the debate, Kelly was handed a fax that indeed showed the university had been upgraded to an "A" rating.  (For the record, there is other information that the upgrade was elevated to a "B" rating).  Despite having  the "public document" now in her hands, Kelly chose not to (at the very least), pass this information onto the audience and millions of viewers.

The voters can decide whether this was another anti-Trump hit job by Fox and Kelly.

Also overheard in an interview between Howard Kurtz and Chris Wallace, Kurtz asked about the graphics Fox put up during their interrogation of Trump.  Note that no other candidate on the stage received a graph to dispute, rebut, or attack a candidate, only Donald Trump.  Kurtz asked Wallace what would have happened if Trump had not acknowledge the graph or excepted the graph to be factual.  

Wallace said, "well, then, we would have been screwed, Howey".

I would truly like to hear what Mr. Wallace means about "we" getting screwed. Does this mean their, [Fox's] agenda to "get Trump" might have foiled if Trump didn't take the bait?   Kelly and Wallace need to answer some questions about their motives.  Were the questions posed to Mr. Trump---with fabricated "Ds" and exclusive graphics for Trump ONLY---"fair and balanced" among all of the candidates?

Since it's so obvious that Fox has an agenda "to screw" a front-running candidate, perhaps it's time for Mr. Trump to say a final goodbye to the folks at Fox and the rest of the Media ending his participation in debates until the general election.  It make no sense for Mr. Trump to step onto a stage when the moderators are predisposed to destroy his candidacy.


Speaking of "stepping on a stage",  it probably didn't take much consideration by Donald Trump and His Campaign Advisers to forgo the scheduled CPAC appearance:

Hummmmm, what to do........

Walk out onto a CPAC stage and watch a third, (or more), of the audience WALK OUT IN A PRE-PLANNED PROTEST, (which the Media & the Democrats will make certain it’s a lasting image to playback over and over again to the American Voter) snubbing the Republican FRONT-RUNNER…….


Politely say, thank you, but I’ve already had plenty of negative press this past week, from every spectrum of the ANTI-TRUMP FACTIONS---including Mitt Romney and the Establishment Power-Brokers in Washington & a Fox News Debate where two desperate candidates hurled unlimited insults---and I think it’s in the best interest of this Campaign to move on to KANSAS, (where there’s an election going on by the way), and then on to Florida to help in solidifying ending the campaign of ONE of these desperate candidates (Rubio).

Was it really that hard of a choice to make?

President Trump Pardons Mitt Romney

Breaking News---Dateline, February 2017: 

President Trump issued an executive pardon to Mitt Romney today for his despicable acts of buffoonery, political sedition, and other GOPe Party indiscretions, (including breaking Ronald Reagan's 11th Commandment).  The 45th President was also reported to have donated a handsome sum to the Surgical Society of Neutered Politicians, in response to Romney's castration by Candy Crowley in his second debate several years earlier.

Mr. Romney---who was found guilty of calling the then Republican candidate Trump a racist bigot and an ego maniacal con-man---was sentenced to 70,000 hours of Anti-Demagoguery Training at the new facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and another 4,000 hours on the construction of the Southern border walls, which is in its final stage of completion.

President Trump said he was convinced by the first lady, Melania Trump, [to issue the pardon], because she felt sorry for the pathetically misguided grand-father of 23 children, who had become a financial burden on the state in Romney’s absence.

During Romney’s release, Mrs. Trump was also heard to have whispered into the former governor’s ear, “choke on that, you sanctimonious bastard”.  

Trumps Great Tuesday Not 'Good Enough' for the Establishment & A Complicit Media

If Marco Rubio or even (maybe) Ted Cruz had won seven state primaries in one day, most American News outlets would have the achievement splashed across their headlines claiming the candidate must be Presidential material based on the overwhelming performance.

Apparently not so with perennial front-runner Donald Trump.

The day after adding seven more state victories to the three he already had, (while putting up with a week long phony attack that the man was some how a racist), the American Media, (no longer considered a resource for reported news), recharged its batteries of selective journalism, and began an all out assault on the candidate.

The sweet victories turned quickly into a "collective" campaign of "How Do We Stop Trump".  I've underlined the "WE", because the two-letter word needs to be defined/explained in the context of the sentence---just who the hell is WE????  It just amazes me, that the media finds it so easy to convince the reader how all things written must be inclusively in the best interest of the masses, as if we're all in this together.

Enter, Willard Mitt Romney, aka the loser.

In a desperate attempt to thwart Trumps campaign, (for reasons not yet clearly defined), former Massachusetts Governor, (and 2012 loser to Barack Obama), has decided to put his two cents into the Presidential race.  
(Via CNN) "Mitt Romney will speak Thursday on "the state of the 2016 presidential race," he said in a press release. 
The 2012 Republican nominee will speak at 11:30 a.m. ET on Thursday at the University of Utah's Hinckley Institute of Politics Forum, the same day that the remaining GOP presidential candidates are schedule to debate in Detroit.
A source close to Romney told CNN the speech is not an endorsement or announcement. Another source close to Romney's plans said he's expected to praise Sens. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, who are both trying to be an alternative candidate to the brash billionaire. 
Instead, he'll use the speech to criticize GOP front-runner Donald Trump, emphasizing that Trump is the wrong person to lead the Republican Party in November and underscoring the "choices facing the Republican Party and the country" in this election."
Here we have a former Presidential candidate, (hand picked by this same establishment that wants to have nothing to do with Trump), who's going to give us his opinion on the state of the Republican election process.  Mind you, this is the same man that couldn't fight his way out of a Candy Crowley "paper bag", yet his wisdom and guidance should be taken seriously?  

With an expected complete Media blitz of "the irrelevant man", (at 11 a.m. eastern time), one can only surmise that Mr. Romney will provide us with his plethoric visions of "Why Donald Trump must be stopped".  

However, there's a slight problem with Mr. Romney's assumed dissertation/admonishment of the election process, sans the American Voter's choice: any attempt to change the rules or subvert the process will result in the utter destruction of the Republican Party, including those in the Establishment who are at the forefront of this Trump assault.  Such a brazen attempt by these cowardly elitist should be met with a revolt not seen in decades.  The establishment class's insult to the American voter is a disgrace and an affront to the Constitutionally directed democratic process.

Note to the Establishment:  Tread lightly.

Trump Dominates Super Tuesday

In what can only be described as a blowout, GOP front-runner Donald Trump took a huge step forward in his quest for the Republican nomination.  Out of the 11 states available on Super Tuesday, Trump won 7 states, Ted Cruz picked up 3, including his home state of Texas, while Marco Rubio ended the night with only one win, in the state of Minnesota.

Exit polling indicated Rubio's all-out assault on Trump last week influenced few and may have even chased off some of the precious votes the Florida Senator will need on March 15th when Floridians go to the polls.  Current RCP Polling has Rubio down to Trump by 19.5 points in this delegate-rich state, that may lead the young Senator to an exit from the race, leaving the last two men standing---Trump and Cruz.

Trump held a press conference in a small but packed room, where he made a short victory speech, and then took question from "reporters".  In his opening statement, Trump emphasized uniting both the GOP and the country in an atmosphere that left several network media pundits claiming the billionaire businessman appeared "Presidential".

The Republican Party enjoyed another record turnout across the country, eclipsing records in some states by 50% over their 2008 primaries, as the enthusiasm level is being attributed to Donald Trump:

"Analysts said the enthusiasm this year is on the Republican side, and said Mr. Trump is driving much of it. They also said they expect that enthusiasm to carry over as the race continues."
“I think it’s a harbinger of things to come,” said David Yepsen, director of the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute at Southern Illinois University. “All those people who line up for Donald Trump rallies and also lining up at the ballot box and the caucus site. Trump’s winning and nothing succeeds like success. 
Turnout has been strong for Republicans across the board. Iowa, which kicked off the campaign season, saw a 50 percent increase for Republicans over their previous record. Indeed, turnout was so high that Mr. Trump and Sen. Marco Rubio, the second- and third-place finishers, got enough votes that they would have won in any previous year."  (link) (all emphasis's are mine)
On the Democrat* side, Hillary Clinton added to her insurmountable lead over Socialist Bernie Sanders, yet the turnout was reportedly down significantly over the 2008 primaries, where the then Senator Obama drew record breaking turnouts, primarily from the African American community and college-aged youths.  *(Note: This writer will rarely use the term Democratic when describing a Party consisting of liberal progressives, and socialist sympathizers---they may be Democrats, but they're hardly Democratic

Mrs. Clinton picked up 453 delegates last night to Sanders 284, leaving the former first lady with a total of 1001.  Sanders' total is 1/3 of Clintons, (371), as the Senator won four states to Hillary's seven.

With the two "front-runners" now being labeled as presumptive nominees, the race for the White House pits a long-term politician against a Washington D.C. Outsider, where current RCP Polling Averages shows Clinton with only a slight lead of 3.0 points.  Last June and July, the former Secretary of State lead Trump by 16-24 points, leaving this race wide-open leading up to Tuesday, November 8th.

What remains to be seen is if the Republican Party can coalesce/unite around Donald Trump to insure no Democrat/Hillary gets near the White House again. With both candidates carrying high negatives among the American voters, the choice may come down to who can change the general direction of a nation with a stagnant economy, a bloated national debt, and notably, an electorate dissatisfied with the current status quo Washington D.C. Cartel that's left the legislative branch of government in shatters.  Hillary Clinton does represent a third-term of an Obama ideology of a big central government controlling the lives of mainstream Americans.  

And, make no mistake, the "party of division", spewing racial, gender, and income equality diatribes, will be the Democrat's playbook.  How Mrs. Clinton can state she wants to "make the country whole again", while employing this playbook of divisive policies designed to further tear this nation apart, is dumbfounding. 

The Republican Party has a clear opportunity to put an end to the bitter clash of ideologies with an Outsider businessman who has promised to "get things done", while Making America Great Again.  Note that Mr. Trump does not say "Make Republicans, Christians, or any class or race Great Again"---he's including every American, in a United cause, to put this Nation back on the track of both exceptionalism and pride in who we are collectively & individually---One Nation, Under God, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All.  

The Elite and Privileged Establishment Cartel in D.C. will have to deal with that.

March 1st 2016----SUPER TUESDAY

SUPER TUESDAY.  This is where the 2016 Presidential Campaigns are defined with 11 States holding Republican Primaries: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Alaska and Minnesota.  Quoting a paragraph from Jonathan Adams website Heavy.Com, here's how the delegates are dispersed:

"The majority of the Super Tuesday states use the proportional method to award the delegates. Delegates are rewarded to multiple candidates based on the results. A candidate may not win a state but still has an opportunity to win some of the state’s delegates. The Colorado, North Dakota and Wyoming caucuses use the unbounded method of awarding delegates. The primaries on March 15 mark the beginning of the winner-take-all method that constitutes the majority of the remaining primaries."

You can find the results of tonight's primaries here, and here.

Republican front-runner Donald Trump has all the momentum winning the first three out of four early primaries, but an all out assault by the Washington Establishment may have "slightly blunted" the businessman's surge.  I say may have, because no one knows what the real impact will be until late tonight.

With the Media and the Political Pundits, (both on the left and the right), caught with their proverbial journalistic pants down, Trump has gone from "the joke" to the serious contending nominee to take on Hillary Clinton in November.  As all the Governors, (except John Kasich), falling by the wayside---most notably former governor, and presumptive GOP Establishment choice Jeb Bush---Trump's only possible "momentum stoppers" are two Senators, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.  In his home state of Texas, with 155 delegates up for grabs, Cruz is leading in the Average RCP polling by 8.9%, but two recent polls by Emerson and ARG, (see the RCP link), had him leading by +1 and +3, certainly within the margin of error.  A loss by Cruz in his home state would be nothing less than devastating.  Even a narrow win by the Texas Senator would split the delegate prize between himself, Trump, and Rubio, depending on how the voters decide.

I've purposely bolded the last sentence above because there's a concerted effort by the Washington Establishment Cartel, (a body politic consisting of politicians and big money special interest), who may be literally "shi!!ing their pants tonight if their stop Trump at all cost effort becomes fruitless.  What the Cartel has yet to understand/contemplate is the strength of the grass-roots anti-establishment voters who are fed up with the status quo mentality of their current government.  In "the good ol' days", (between the influences of the Media and the special interest), the general election would have already been decided for Jeb Bush to face off against Hillary Clinton.  But, the million dollar war chest belonging to Bush---supplied primarily by the PACS---never got off the ground, and Hillary Clinton's once "inevitable coronation" has her campaign scurrying to the left, thanks to admitted socialist Bernie Sanders.  Sander's template mirrors the campaign of Barack Obama's phony hope & change plethora of "free stuff for the poor and disadvantaged" without the Media's deception that Obama was not a socialist.  But the Democratic Party had already implemented "the fix" long before Sanders even got into the race with hundreds of "uncommitted" Super Delegates trying to figure out how to coronate Hillary without causing a major revolt within the Party, which may still become inevitable.

So, as you can see, Hillary has her problems going into Super Tuesday, much like the Republican Establishment Cartel has theirs---and, the biggest obstruction is, shock, the American Voters, split again by distinctively different ideologies, yet both yearning for something different from the status quo politicians.  Super Tuesday "may" sort a little out on how the nation moves forward..........but, I wouldn't bet on it.

Stay tuned.....more to come.  Or, as Matt Drudge puts it, developing.

What a rousing speech Rubio gave to accept his participation trophy!
