    The Politistick ^ | 09/22/2017 | Matthew K. Burke
    During President Donald Trump’s rally to show support for RINO Mitch McConnell stooge, lifelong DC lobbyist and swamp creature Luther Strange, who the president endorsed, even though many of his supporters like Sebastian Gorka, Sean Hannity, Sarah Palin, and many others endorsed legendary Ten Commandments Judge Roy Moore, the president admitted that he may have made a “mistake’ with the endorsement. “I might have made a mistake,” President Trump told the Alabama crowd before the special election on September 26 to fill the seat vacated when former Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions became attorney general. “I’ll be honest, I might have...

    In a piece called “Washington Post unwittingly destroys the ‘Sessions is a racist’ slander,” I reviewed the evidence set forth in an article that supports the slander and the evidence that undercuts it. The undercutting evidence is overwhelming. It includes, but is hardly limited to, the testimony of African-Americans, including several from Alabama, who have known and/or worked with Sessions over the years. Evidence on the other side of the ledger consisted primarily of the opinion of the widow of a civil rights leader Sessions once prosecuted for voter fraud. Evelyn Turner, 80 years-old and a stroke survivor, insists that...

    It took me a long time to write this. I had to dig deep into my being to come up with these words. I’m recanting my endorsement of Hillary Clinton for the presidency. I’m aware of how vindictive Clintonians can be. I’m not speaking about the Clintons themselves, but of those surrounding them. Perhaps the saying is true: dime con quién andas y te diré quién eres. Your staff, your donors, your surrogates, and those you surround yourself with are a reflection of who you truly are, no? If not, why not curb any unacceptable behavior? Silence, indifference, or inaction...
  • Malik Obama: Here’s why I’m voting for Trump

    10/30/2016 5:57:59 AM PDT · by FreedomFight16 · 26 replies
    I am back in the US and will be voting for Mr. Trump early next week in Maryland. My [half] brother Barack Obama is a big disappointment. Why did he not come home to Kogelo [the family village] on his visit to Kenya last year? Why did he not provide for the family when they came to see him in Nairobi? (They experienced extreme hardship and left immediately after the dinner). Why did he not support Auntie Zeituni [President Obama’s late half aunt, who lived for a decade as an illegal immigrant] in America? He claims to be advocate for...

    Donald Trump picked up his first major newspaper endorsement of the November election over the weekend when the Las Vegas Review-Journal became one of the few to back the Republican nominee. “These are turbulent times,” the newspaper, which is owned by Republican megadonor Sheldon Adelson, said in an editorial. “More and more Americans express frustration and disillusionment today with the political institutions that govern the nation. They clamor for an alternative to the incestuous and pernicious atmosphere dominating the capital. They see a vast array of lobbyists, elected officials and entrenched interests manipulating the levers of power for their own...

    Vogue Endorses Hillary Clinton Using A Photo From 1993 By Kelly Riddell - The Washington Times - Tuesday, October 18, 2016 ANALYSIS/OPINION: The media and elitist love for Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, continues. It’s unhinged. Vogue Magazine made its first political endorsement on Tuesday backing Mrs. Clinton for president. The endorsement’s not surprising, given its editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, is a huge Clinton bundler. Ms. Wintour helped organize a multimillion dollar fundraiser for Mrs. Clinton in New York City just Monday night with celebrities Sarah Jessica Parker, Anne Hathaway, Neil Patrick Harris, Julia Roberts and others. What is surprising,...

    The Courier ^ | 10/1/2016
    The 180 year old conservative newspaper mainly representing the right leaning Hancock county in Ohio has declined to no endorse either leading presidential candidates. Quoting from the article about why it will not endorse Trump: This year, however, The Courier cannot endorse the Republican Party’s candidate. Americans always put their country first, way ahead of their party, and we withhold an endorsement not to spite the party for selecting Donald J. Trump, but because its nominee has clearly proven to be unfit to be president of the United States of America. Also quoting from the article about why the news...

    Detroit News endorses ridiculous ticket. Note: In the interest of disclosure I guess I should mention that I used to be a Detroit News contributor. Not sure why it would matter, but there you go. You may have read that the Detroit News “for the first time in its 143 history” endorsed a presidential candidate that wasn’t a Republican. Technically that’s true, but the paper also failed to endorse a Republican in 2004, when it refused to lend its support to George W Bush. That’s fine, and it’s their right to do so, but what they did today makes absolutely...

    Glenn Beck on Friday voiced sorrow over Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) endorsing Donald Trump for the presidency. “[This is] a profoundly sad day for me,” he wrote on Facebook. "Disappointment does not begin to describe. “Maybe it is time to go to the mountains for a while,” the conservative commentator added. "Again, disappointment doesn’t even begin to describe my feelings.” Beck, who supported Cruz over Trump in the GOP’s presidential primary, added he feared for the nation’s future. “America is an idea, not a country,” he said. "When we discuss the destruction of our country, that is vastly different...

    Donald Trump on Friday accepted Sen. Ted Cruz's (R-Texas) endorsement, despite promising in July not to. After Cruz was booed at the Republican National Convention for refusing to endorse Trump, the GOP presidential nominee tore into his formal rival. Trump predicted at the time that Cruz would eventually endorse, but said that “if he gives it, I will not accept it.” "He'll come and endorse in the next little while because he has no choice. … I don't want his endorsement. Ted, stay home, relax, enjoy yourself." But when Cruz’s endorsement came Friday in the form of a lengthy Facebook...

    Washington Examiner ^ | September 22, 2016 | By DAVID M. DRUCKER
    Ted Cruz supporters were alarmed Wednesday at suggestions that he was on the verge of endorsing Donald Trump. They worry that the Texas senator could squander his brand as a fighter — and goodwill earned among many through his stubborn refusal to back his party's nominee — if he caves with nothing to show for it. Cruz has held out on the grounds that Trump is insufficiently conservative, and because Trump attacked his wife and father down the stretch of their heated battle for the Republican nomination. The senator even took the extraordinary step of declining to endorse Trump during...

    The 2016 election affords the American people an urgently needed opportunity to make a long-overdue course correction in our national security posture and policy. As retired senior leaders of America’s military, we believe that such a change can only be made by someone who has not been deeply involved with, and substantially responsible for, the hollowing out of our military and the burgeoning threats facing our country around the world. For this reason, we support Donald Trump’s candidacy to be our next Commander-in-Chief. (snip)
