  1. Does this mean that we can violently stab he [or she] who wishes to be Imperator? And if so, where does the line form?

  2. In Ohio, voters aren't going to the polls today to vote FOR Kasich, They're going to STOP Trump. Kasich is purely in the race as a GOPe spoiler.

    2. I wonder why it seems that [we] are just now hearing about this and why has Trump been silent on it? That said, maybe I just missed it.

  3. The Big Question is, Why is there only one Trump?

    Why has the Bern turned into such a damp fizzle?

    American politics needs a lot more smashy-smashy...

  4. Trump is uniting washington ...they are all afraid he will win so all parties are doing their best to defeat him. But on the good side he is uniting Americans who are tired of the good ole boys in washington and want them gone

  5. I for one am getting very tired of it all, and just wish we could get the nominating process OVER and DONE WITH.

    I've developed an idea that the ENEMEDIA has made a pact with The Oligarchs, who own and operate it (them?), to BORE the public into accepting ANYTHING the Enemdia-Oligarch Complex dishes out just to get them all to SHUT UP.

    The rhetoric –– and the views we are permitted to see and hear of it –– are SO shallow, SO stale, SO tired, SO tedious from endless repetition I can't listen to the news anymore.

    What-passes-for "NEWS" these days is BILGE. It doesn't even rise to the level of PROPAGANDA.

  6. I see that Trump got all 9 delegates of the Marianas Territory. That makes him the first of the GOP candidates to meet the requirements of Rule 40, which was devised in 2012 so that that Party managers could run the candidate of their choice in 2016. I suppose to be hat candidate of their choice was Jeb Bush. Something about whose turn it is.

  7. Has any of you seen where Hillary said nobody died in Libya? Am I missing something or shouldn't the media be getting that out ,...or are they keeping it down because of these primaries? (see, AOW, I wasn't TOO off topic! heh!)

    1. Hillary Clinton wants us to believe that what she said yesterday in a TV interview about Lybia was JUST A GAFFE ! Just a gaffe? She said that “the United States didn't lose a single person in Libya, during her time as Secretary of State”.
      Is she kidding or is she trying to forget about BENGHAZI ?

      Was that simply a “Gaffe”? NO, this is the women who wants to be YOUR president. The women that half of the people in America wants her to be THEIR president. Hillary Clinton either LOST HER MIND. or she LIED HER A$$ OFF, as she has done SO many times before.!
      Forgetting about BENGHAZI is in NO way just a Gaffe!
      There are SO many nauseating aspects of this women that I can’t even begin to count them.
      And claiming that the United States. "DIDN'T lose a single person" in Libya during her time as Secretary of State. Is the work of a complete, unstable, mentally Insane PSYCHOPATH or an out of control, serial Pathological Liar who just can't stop herself from lying? Or ALL of the above.
      But I guess that when Hillary says it, t's not a lie... It’s simply a case of miss-speaking.
      But the sad thing is that her stupid supporters, still support her.
      Anyone this Delusional, or Insane or is a Pathological Liar should NEVER, EVER become President of the United States!
      And saying something so obviously wrong is simply NUTS! And on National TV yet!
      She should be apologizing to the grieving family members of those who did die in Libya!

      And once again they just could resist throwing in the Race card saying “ The Trump rallies reminds her of “the mob violence against African Americans that led to lynching” Blaming Donald Trump instead of actually condemning protestor for the violence.
      Oh the Stench of Desperation!
      So the solution to the problem, according to Hillary is to tone down Donald Trump-, and NOT to stop these trouble makers! How’s that for liberal logic?
      It looks like the Chicago Gangs are taking Obama’s advice when he said, “ If they bring a knife , YOU bring a gun”!.

  8. "Hillary Clinton said on 3/14 during a Democratic town hall that the United States “didn’t lose a single person” in Libya as she defended interventionism and regime change to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews."
    I've heard the video but I Googled and only conservative blogs are carrying it, basically. Astonishing? no.
    Brain damage or VERy tired (how this woman is keeping up the campaign schedule is beyond ME and she's OLDER than I am!), but could anybody FORGET the four who died there?

  9. Well that should be the end of L'il Marco.

    Guess there weren't enough old timers in Miami who thought the l'il punk would get tough and make Castro give them back all the stuff.

    1. You'd think Repubes would have already learned by now that only Democrats can get by with running half-assed token minorities. Hell they got a dope-smoking smack talking street punk elected president

  10. Kasik too his own state. It looks like that Soros money put him over the top. It's a Cruz-Trump race now. The preacher versus the playboy.

  11. Rubio has officially suspended his campaign. I note that he criticized the Party's establishment during the course of delivering his speech. Interesting, in that he was the establishment's second choice (after Jeb).

  12. In the WaPo:

    Rubio’s demise marks the last gasp of the Republican reboot

    ...Rubio, whose ascent was propelled by a network of powerful players for years, was supposed to be the candidate best positioned to stop Trump and prevent a Republican rupture.

    [...]

    Following Romney’s defeat in an election many Republicans thought they should have won, party leaders concluded that the only way to regain the presidency would be to engage the growing and diverse electorate that President Obama had won over twice. The RNC drafted an “autopsy” that recommended bolstering appeals to women and minority voters, while reform conservatives drafted their own manifesto. [Including Rule 40]

    Rubio had been building his base among these Republicans since January 2011, when he began his Senate term. He joined the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and began to speak at think tanks and meet with scholars, most of them former staffers from George W. Bush’s administration. He hired a number of them for his own staff.

    During his breaks in the Senate, Rubio would often tell colleagues how he was reading papers sent to him from former Republican officials or how he was about to have lunch with another bold-faced name from the Bush years. On his computer, he kept a “drop box” of related policy files compiled by his advisers.

    [...]

    “The critique was there: The Republican Party was out of touch,” said Peter Wehner, a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and former George W. Bush speechwriter. “But the breakdown occurred because we got into a cycle where policy didn’t matter at all. Policy was not just secondary, but it was almost not even in the conversation. And when people tried to interject policy — whether it was Rubio or Bush or others — there was just no appetite for it. It didn’t catch on.”

    Former House speaker Newt Gingrich said that Rubio campaigned in a way that quickly became obsolete.

    “Rubio was prepared, much like Jeb Bush, for a reasonable dialogue in Washington policy language, offering positions that reflect 40 years of national security and foreign-policy experts. All of that disappeared. The market didn’t care,” Gingrich said....


    There's also this in the article:

    “The party finds itself catching up to its base. Those very elegant papers it published and conferences it held may have been good and smart, but they didn’t really matter,” said William J. Bennett, a conservative talk-show host and former education secretary in Ronald Reagan’s administration. “Instead, everyone who’s been prominent for the last 15 to 20 years finds themselves getting pushed out.
