After hitching rides with the cast of Modern “Family” and James Corden, Kimmel wound up in a limo driven by former presidential candidate Jeb Bush. ...Upon learning Kimmel was nominated for an Emmy, Bush gave him some advice. “If you run a positive campaign, the voters will ultimately make the right choice,” Bush deadpanned before adding, “Jimmy, that was a joke, and shave that wig off your face you...

    During a fundraiser in New York City Friday evening, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton described half of the Americans supporting Donald Trump as a “basket of deplorables” made up of “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic” people. “You know to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” she said as the crowd laughed and applauded. “They’re racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, you name it.”
  • Trumping The Establishment

    The Washington Establishment hates Trump, because he promises to put them out of business Why does The Washington Establishment hate Donald Trump? It is not because of his positions on immigration or trade. Pat Buchanan and Ross Perot advocated similar stands in 1992, and they did not generate the obsessive hatred being displayed in 2016. Trump has declared war on The Establishment itself. In his June 16, 2015 Presidential announcement he asserted: “So I’ve watched the politicians. I’ve dealt with them all my life…. They will never make America great again. They don’t even have a chance. They’re controlled fully...

    Anti-Trump Republicans are preparing to launch a broadcast TV ad in a handful of swing-state suburbs urging Donald Trump to quit the presidential race so the party can replace him with a more electable nominee. The ad, titled "Keep Your Word," features footage of Trump during the Republican primary in which he suggested he'd drop out if he saw his poll numbers decline. The 30-second spot is marked for a limited run on broadcast networks in suburban Florida, Virginia, Ohio and Michigan, according to Regina Thomson, a Colorado Republican activist and leader of Free the Delegates, the organization that failed...

All minor party candidates as well as an upstart “conservative” alternative to Donald Trump have no prayer of victory.

Why was there not a campaign sign behind Nehlen with dot com, twitter and other addresses on the campaign sign. If Nehlen wins, or even comes close it will be a the anti-Paul...

And by “interesting,” I mean “not entirely positive,” as the recently suspended Fox News contributor‘s private remarks this past February reveal. What’s more, according to what Gingrich told the Republican State Leadership Committee during their meeting in Washington, D.C., it seems he was praising and insulting the New York real-estate mogul. So much for that running-mate gig, Newt. Per Pro Publica, it all started when Gingrich broached whether Trump’s...

    Over the past several years, the term "the Establishment" has been frequently used. The Republican Establishment, the Democrat Establishment, etc. The "Establishment" is nothing more than the ruling oligarchy, "the few" who have consolidated power within themselves and pass it around amongst themselves (witness the Bushes, the Clintons, the Romneys, the Cuomos, the Kennedys, etc.). And witness the means that congressional leaders select and elect only their own types for power (the NRSC, NRCC, DNSC, DNCC and the oligarchs that fund them). There is nothing new in this. In fact, it is quite common in world history. And there is...

Team Trump shrugged off the criticism and then proceeded to initiate a fundraising effort that saw a groundswell of support from backers both great and small who quickly amassed a remarkable $11 million dollars into the coffers of Team Trump and the RNC. Much to the chagrin of the Clinton Machine and Trump’s critics, it doesn’t appear the New York billionaire will have any trouble raising campaign cash.

Those involved concede that an independent campaign at this late stage is probably futile, and they think they have only a couple of weeks to launch a credible bid. But these Republicans — including commentators William Kristol and Erick Erickson and strategists Mike Murphy, Stuart Stevens and Rick Wilson — are so repulsed by the prospect of Trump...

Once safely in office, they revert to ignoring those same principles.During the current Republican nomination process, the Establishment has chastised Donald Trump for not being a "real" Republican and not adhering to Republican principles -- the principles which they themselves ignore, by which he...

An anonymous top GOP party leader even told CNN that he and others have advised rank-and-file members to avoid the convention and instead hold events in their home districts during that time.

He followed up with a video that some, including the Drudge Report, viewed as a campaign ad. Ryan’s office pushed back quickly on that suggestion, but Drudge is far from alone in wondering if Ryan...

Among Democrats, Caucus members by a nearly two-to-one margin predicted Bernie Sanders would defeat Hillary Clinton. In the Republican race, insiders said Cruz has surged ahead of Trump in Wisconsin thanks to GOP Gov. Scott Walker’s endorsement and an electorate that isn’t as favorable to Trump as those in other...

    Ted Cruz is now totally owned and controlled by the GOP Establishment, which will now use him to gain their urgent need to obtain the Republican nominee for POTUS...which, under no circumstances will ever be Ted Cruz. Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, John McCain, Lindsy Graham, Jeb Bush, Glenn Beck, Mike Lee, Carly Fiorina, and probably, as of later today, Rand Paul, now control one time "OUTSIDER" Ted Cruz. Of course both Ted Cruz and his wife were never outsiders....they are "Bushises, from head to toe. Ted Cruz is hated and repulsive to all of these GOP (E) folks, and they...

    Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) could be in prime position to run for president in 2020 if Donald Trump leads the GOP to a monumental collapse in November. With his youth and sunny, Reaganesque message, Ryan could be a formidable White House candidate in four years’ time, when the Republican Party may be searching for a safer standard-bearer after the roller coaster ride of 2016.

    Bill Kristol, founder and editor of The Weekly Standard, tells Newsmax TV he hopes a third-party candidate will emerge if Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are anointed the Republican and Democratic presidential nominees. "I just don't think [Trump] has the character or temperament to be president of the United States ... [and] we're certainly not going to vote for Hillary," Kristol said Friday to J.D. Hayworth on "Newsmax Prime." "There are a lot of fine Republicans and conservatives in the country, some of them are retired generals, some of them are businessmen, some of them are civic leaders, some of...
  • WHOA! RNC Changes Rule To Stop Trump From 1,237 Delegates…All Are Eligible

    Republicans have assumed this entire elections season that a candidate must have won at least 8 state primaries or caucuses to be eligible for the GOP nomination, but apparently that is not the case and apparently a rule change hasn’t technically occurred, but that’s not the way it seems. Even Ted Cruz said just last night that John Kasich wasn’t eligible because he hadn’t won enough states, so even he was mislead. Insiders now say rule 40(b) only applied to the republican convention in 2012 and was never intended to be used in future elections. From Washington Examiner: Party officials...

    Wisconsin governor Scott Walker said Thursday that in the event of a contested convention, the Republican nominee will likely be someone who is "not currently running." "I think if it's an open convention, it's very likely it would be someone who's not currently running," Walker said. "I mean, who knows. The one thing I qualify -- it's like the qualifications you see on those ads you see for car dealerships. I think any of us who comment on this election have to qualify that almost every prediction's been off, so it's hard to predict anything," Walker added. Walker's own run...

    Kasich and Cruz quietly work to persuade delegates to break with GOP voters in a contested convention. When South Dakota's Republican activists convened in Pierre to pick their delegates to the Republican national convention, they got an unexpected visitor. Merle Madrid, senior aide to Ohio Gov. John Kasich, had flown in from Columbus to make an appeal: If the convention fails to elect front-runner Donald Trump on the first ballot, consider Kasich on the second — even if the state’s Republican voters sent them there to back Trump or Ted Cruz. Madrid was polite and earnest , but according to...
