  • Sununu warns: Don't let Trump debate, will turn into 'reality show'

    John Sununu, who was former President George H.W. Bush's top aide, told PoliticKING host Larry King that the party would be making an error to let Trump participate and not long-time politicians such as Ohio Gov. John Kasich and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham.

    Why are so many people, left and right, so afraid of Trump?

    He sounds like a winner to me. He describes major, major failures of this country in trade, immigration, jobs creation, etc. He is a man of great accomplishment. He loves our country.

    We desperately need a leader who can take us from Third World status back to being the greatest country on this earth.

  • Why Donald Trump Is the Rachel Dolezal of American Politics

    Donald Trump will never be president, and Rachel Dolezal will never be a black woman. They know that, and we know that, and they know that we know that. But the maelstrom of cable news appearances and trending Twitter hashtags surrounding the unlikely duo guarantees that they will starve out the candidates and issues that matter.

    What utter nonsense! I detect wishful thinking, fear, loathing, and envy in yet another shallow attempt to disparage Donald Trump.

    Our country needs someone like Trump to return us from third world status to the greatest country in the history of the world.

    Looking forward to see how this evolves.

  • Here We Go Again: Left Pounces on Gun Control in Wake of Charleston Tragedy

    Less than 24-hours after a racist young white man killed nine black members of the Emanuel A.M.E. Church in Charleston, South Carolina Wednesday night, the left took the opportunity to immediately politicize the tragedy with a push for more gun control.

    This statement is more evidence that leftists have disordered minds. They focus on an inanimate object instead of offering sympathy and condolences to the innocent victims, instead of finding out more about the alleged perpetrator, instead of connecting the dots between the hateful rhetoric of people like Sharpton and other race baiters.

    Instead they spew forth the usual nonsensical and deeply flawed concept of somehow taking away all guns from all people. In reality they will just take away guns from law abiding citizens.

    They want to punish the innocent and reward the guilty with their short sighted and shallow "solution."

    But the document does blame mankind, and specifically the burning of oil, gas and coal, for the devastating effects of global warming, which Francis says already are clear to anyone paying attention.

    Mankind has nothing to do with climate change.

    Removing the paid propagandists from the U.N. panel of climate scientists, would result in the finding that it is at least 99.99 percent probable that global warming since 1950 is NOT caused by human activities.

    Real scientists know the difference between weather variability and climate change. Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns when that change lasts for an extended period of time (i.e., hundreds to thousands to millions of years).

    There is no real science that supports man made "global warming."

    Our Molten Core, the Earths Magnetic Field, the Moon, Sunspots (or Solar activity) and the timing of the Solar activity, our orbital relationship to the Sun among many other variables determine the Climate. Mankind and our activities in perspective have had no measurable effect on the Earths Climate.

    Yes, it is true that mankind has the responsibility to husband our resources and to protect our environment. Yes, it is true that we continue to have excessive waste and irresponsible use of our resources by certain governments in certain parts of the world. Condemning mankind and free enterprise is not justified.

    I blame her father, Larry Dolezal. I blame him in order to make a bold point: we must stop blaming the police, sexism, racism or even our own children every time our children go wild. Instead, we need to develop, hold accountable and appreciate great fathers.

    The blame game is a weak argument. This is an unsupported assertion without evidence of the role of her father during her formative years, say birth until teens.

    Blaming the parents is silly. Maybe the parents were waiting to see if anyone even cared to connect the dots and ask them. Many organizations made zero effort to validate her claims. Not a single decision maker checked anything about her claimed background. Finally the parents stepped forward.

Funding per student dropped even more dramatically, falling by more than 27 percent, or about $2,500 per student.

    Nothing in that statement about the efficacy and cost effectiveness of our college system. I believe that we can cut university funding another 60% with zero impact on productive education that matters.

    “No President has ever done more to support Israel’s security than President Barack Obama.”

    A truthful quote for Joe would be:

    No President has ever done more to undermine Israel’s security than President Barack Obama.

    Essentially The Communist Left has coopted the entire democrat party which is now pretty much a Zombie of what it used to be.

    Looks to me like the Republican establishment has not yet noticed or changed their tactics to effectively counter this dramatic change in the Democrat Party.

    This is astonishing. Corzine should be in a Federal pen!

    At a minimum he should be in an orange jump suit awaiting trial. But Democrats can do no wrong!

    Several prominent Republicans are trying to push immigration restrictionist groups to the fringe of the debate by challenging their conservative credentials and attacking their stance on population control, The Washington Post reports.Several prominent Republicans are attempting to change the subject of the debate on illegal immigration.

    The common sense approach is to stop the influx of illegal immigrants by closing our borders. Deport convicted criminals now filling and overflowing our jails.

    And then deal with those already here by taking the time to develop a policy acceptable to the American people and to those who followed the rules (legal immigrants).

    Changing the subject with psychobabble will not work, and is unbecoming.

    I wouldn’t take anyone serious that figured that Ronald Reagan was ‘palatable’ to the left.

    I thought that Reagan was "palatable" to the left in the sense that he was consistent and predictable. Furthermore, Reagan worked with the left to get his budget priorities approved. So it cost him (and us taxpayers) more because the left got their funding, too.

    The MSM hated him and still does.

  • Protests for $15-an-hour wages set to expand Wednesday

    The Fight for $15 campaign is being spearheaded by the Service Employees International Union and began in late 2012 with fast-food workers.

    What are these employees offering to improve productivity and sales to pay for their demands for increased pay? Are they that much of a low information, dumbed down worker, that they have no concept of basic economics and cause and effect?

    Where do they suppose the extra money will come from? Do they expect the company to somehow pay them from their "obscene" profits? Do they have a clue on the business risks and efforts companies exercise to make a profit at all?

    Clueless, selfish, and mean spirited unions have destroyed many companies.

    Graham, who is considering a run for president, said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that current nuclear talks with Iran should be suspended, with the temporary deal remaining in effect until President Obama leaves the White House in 2017.

    Did Senator Graham say which party he would be representing if he ran for President?
