  • Evangelist Franklin Graham Urges Prayers for Donald Trump by Promoting T-Shirt

    Newsweek ^ | November 2, 2019 | Benjamin Fearnow
    Evangelist leader Franklin Graham called the impeachment inquiry of Donald Trump an "unjust inquisition," and claimed the Christian Bible directs Americans to pray for the president. Graham, the president of Samaritan's Purse and his late father's Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, quoted the Bible Friday in a plea for Americans to purchase a "Pray for 45" T-shirt being sold through his organization's website. Earlier this week, Graham urged Christians to pray for God to give Trump "wisdom and protection" just hours after the House voted in favor of impeachment procedures. The pro-Trump evangelical and his daughter, Cissie Graham Lynch, both promoted...

    I received word from 2ndDivisionVet wife that he passed away. I am not using his real name here out of respect but, will ping his handle and his wife can if she would like. I didn't ask what he died from but, knowing him for better than 10 years, I knew of medical conditions and a few terrible Operations he had. He was a wonderful human being who cared deeply for his fellow Americans and the ideals that make this country so great that people the world over want to come here and be free, live in liberty and be...

  • Ted Cruz rips New York Times for acting as 'propaganda arm' for Hamas

    Washington Examiner ^ | 05/17/2018 | by Katelyn Caralle
    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, charged on the Senate floor Thursday that the New York Times and other media outlets have been acting as a propaganda arm for Hamas by writing that Israeli troops were killing innocent Palestinians at a protest, and downplaying the fact that many were violent and threatening to kill Israelis. “We can count on global media elites acting as little more than propaganda arms, for Hamas and other terrorists, and no week has that been more evident than this week,” Cruz said. “The media has been more than happy to oblige Hamas’ propaganda needs. Reporters, celebrity talking...

    The Washington Times ^ | February 26, 2017 | Bradford Richardson
    Newly elected Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez is suggesting President Trump may have “rigged” the general election with the help of the Russians. “Frankly, what we need to be looking at is whether this election was rigged by Donald Trump and his buddy, [Russian President] Vladimir Putin,” Mr. Perez said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”“We need an independent investigation, because that is a serious, serious issue,” said Mr. Perez, former labor secretary for President Barack Obama. “And the American people need to understand whether the Russians, in cahoots with the Trump folks and others, rigged the election.”...

    The Hill ^ | July 3, 2016 | Vicki Needham
    Donald Trump has found a new enemy in his quest for the White House: the global elite. In a series of economic speeches, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee has railed against the forces of globalization, arguing that changes in the economy have betrayed workers and wiped out the middle class. At the center of the "rigged economy," Trump argues, are "powerful corporations, media elites and political dynasties" and his likely general election opponent, Hillary Clinton . "Hillary Clinton and her friends in global finance want to scare America into thinking small — and they want to scare the American people...

    Yahoo! Finance India ^ | June 4, 2016 | Maxwell Tani, Business Insider
    For much of his nearly year-old presidential campaign, Donald Trump bragged about his ability to best his Republican rivals without even hiring a pollster. But after quietly hiring his first high-profile data analyst, The New York Times reported last week that the real-estate magnate is considering bringing on more pollsters to help him with a bold goal: Winning the Democratic-heavy state of New York. While the Clinton campaign sees a map of 10 to 12 battleground states, including some Rust Belt states like Ohio and Pennsylvania, Trump's campaign claims he can be competitive in 15 states. That includes electorally rich,...

    Forbes ^ | May 19, 2016 | Michael Ledeen
    As I wrote in this space a few weeks ago, Donald Trump is no fascist, but there are many pundits who are calling him that. Their efforts, I think, tells us more about their ignorance of fascism than about Trump and his followers. The latest to show off his ignorance is Robert Kagan of the Brookings Institution, writing in the Washington Post. Fascist movements, according to Kagan, are incoherent mobocracies with strong leaders. They had, he claims, “ no coherent ideology, no clear set of prescriptions for what ailed society. ‘National socialism’ was a bundle of contradictions, united chiefly by...

    The Montgomery County Courier ^ | May 20, 2016 | The Dallas Morning News
    Sen. Ted Cruz and his most determined supporters are likely still licking their wounds and mending their broken hearts. Such a sudden end to his primary campaign for president has left marks that will heal but slowly. Soon, though, Cruz will see that he has come through the hurricane of his first presidential campaign with his prospects enhanced, rather than retarded. We hope that knowledge gives him confidence and patience to reconsider his approach to the job he is returning to, as the junior senator from Texas. That’s the work, after all, that Texas voters singled him out for in...
  • Trump Taps D.C. Lawyer Who Vetted Palin for VP Search

    NBC News ^ | May 20, 2016 | Kelly O'Donnell
    Donald Trump has hired the same D.C. power lawyer who vetted Sarah Palin in 2008 to conduct the legal review of his potential running mate. NBC News confirms that A.B. Culvahouse, a partner in the firm O'Melveny & Myers, will lead the process of sifting through financial, legal and other background materials submitted by potential candidates before Trump finalizes his choice for second-in-command. Trump personally met Culvahouse Wednesday in New York after the Trump campaign reached out to at least two DC-based law firms in an effort to find the best counsel for the job. After John McCain made a...

    Analysts predict a blowout for Hillary Clinton. Here's why they might be wrong. Donald Trump has all but won the Republican nomination to be president of the United States. His fans have long said that he’s the candidate to beat Hillary Clinton and will do so easily. They believe, as Newt Gingrich recently said, that Trump “puts all 50 states in play.” New York candidate for U.S. Senate Wendy Long, who lost her previous campaign for the seat by more than 40 points, says that Trump won’t just get her elected, but “will lift the entire GOP ticket.” Rush Limbaugh...
  • Ben Carson Reveals Donald Trump's VP Running Mates, But Do They Want It?

    Former Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson inadvertently exposed who may be on Donald Trump's list of possible running mates during Sunday's interview with The Washington Post. But those same politicians identified deflected the matter since the story surfaced. Following Carson's exit from the campaign in March, he endorsed Trump, quickly becoming a trusted advisor. His first big task was to lead the search for a vice presidential pick. By May 12, Carson's role on this V.P. Committee had ended, according to Carson's campaign manager Armstrong Williams, who told the Independent Journal that Carson did submit a list of potential nominees...

    KWES-TV ^ | May 5, 2016 | Will Weissert and Scott Bauer, The Associated Press
    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - In finishing the Republican presidential race well ahead of Donald Trump's other rivals, Ted Cruz is likely to be a leading GOP voice for the foreseeable future. Less clear is whether Cruz harnesses that clout to help Trump win the White House or whether he simply solidifies his place as a champion of conservative causes, Senate troublemaker and star of Texas politics. Cruz is being talked about as a leader of the national conservative movement, and he has an unmatched organization in Texas....

    Donald Trump may be a runaway train. He has blasted through his 50 percent “ceiling,” outperforming his polls and winning a clear majority in the last six states to cast ballots. All that success occurred in the Northeast, however, so here’s the question: Is Trump wrapping up this nomination, or is he just really strong in the Northeast? We’ll get some answers in Indiana on Tuesday. It’s a culturally conservative state where many political observers (including yours truly) thought Ted Cruz had a good shot at coalescing the anti-Trump vote. Indiana is also, in terms of demographics, slightly below average...

    A 20-year-old man is in custody after threatening to bomb Saturday’s rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in Waterbury. At about 12:45 p.m., the United States Secret Service contacted the Connecticut State Police after seeing a threat posted on Twitter threatening to “bomb” the rally for Trump. According to state police, the Twitter post said, “Is someone going to bomb the Trump rally or am I going to have to?” A second Twitter post warned the suspect’s friend to have his family members leave the rally so they wouldn’t be hurt. Detectives found that the Twitter posts came from...

    I like the way he focused on the role of law. North Carolina enacted a law, and now "they're paying a big price, and there's a lot of problems." Law wasn't needed, because: "There have been very few complaints the way it is. People go, they use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate, there has been so little trouble." There was already a social adjustment that accommodated people who needed to be accommodated. Asked whether he would let Caitlyn Jenner, a trans woman, use the bathroom of her choice at Trump Tower, he said he would. He added, "There's...

    No, really. This is one of the best political commercials ever made. It won’t be on TV unless it gets recut, because it’s two and a half minutes long, but to recut this would be a shame. It packs in many of the reasons why Cruz is a better nominee than Trump, gets across the key point that if Trump is the nominee the media which has been fawning over him will turn on him the same way they turned on John McCain and Hillary’s opposition research feeding into the media coverage will turn the entire general election race into...

    The Louisiana Hayride ^ | April 19, 2016 | Scott McKay, publisher
    It wasn’t a good night for Ted Cruz, who finished third in New York amid a landslide for Donald Trump in his home state. There was some talk, which turned out to be more hopeful than realistic, that because of the fact New York was a closed primary with registration rules so restrictive that you had to be registered as a Republican back in October of last year in order to vote in it the circumstances would serve to hold down his vote – perhaps even keep him under 50 percent. That didn’t happen; with 70 percent of the vote...

    What’s up with all of this after-the-fact complaining we’ve heard from Donald Trump in the wake of his recent losses to Senator Cruz? Yesterday, Mr. Cruz romped in Wyoming. Mr. Trump charged that the Texan had bought the delegates. A week earlier after Mr. Cruz swept Colorado, a Trump lieutenant accused the Cruz campaign of “Gestapo tactics.” The crusty solon from Texas is probably the senator the Republican Establishment most likes to dislike. Yet after the Mr. Cruz crushed the New Yorker 531,000 votes to 386,000 in the Wisconsin primary, Mr. Trump called him a “Trojan horse” for the Establishment....
