Bush, met with the incoming president at Trump Tower last week and discussed labor and transportation policy, Trump’s transition team said then. The formal announcement is expected at 1 p.m., one source said. The wife of Senate...

    Outgoing Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., is at the top of President-elect Trump's list for secretary of defense, according to a Washington Post report published Friday evening. Other candidates up for the Pentagon chief slot are retired Army Lt. Gen. Joseph "Keith" Kellogg, former Defense Intelligence Agency director Gen. Mike Flynn and Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions. snip.... Sources said Ayotte's neoconservative background would help her serve as a liaison between the GOP establishment in Congress and Trump administration. She would also be the first woman to oversee the Defense Department.

    The president-elect should make a handful of appointments quickly, briskly, with an initial emphasis on old hands and known quantities. Ideological foes need not be included but accomplished Washington figures, especially those from previous administrations, should be invited in. It is silly to worry that Mr. Trumps supporters will start to fear hes gone establishment. They believe in him, are beside themselves with joy, and will understand hes shoring up his position and communicating stability. Third, there are former officials and true experts with esteemed backgrounds who need to be told: Help him

    The Clinton Crime Family has committed more crimes than probably all the prisoners in jail...and guess what..they have accumulated hundreds of millions of dollars tax-free in their family foundation in the process. And she is running for president with millions of idiots voting for her. And Obama says that it is perfectly normal for millions of illegals to vote (presumably for her) and the governor of Virginia-Terry McAuliffe not only caused his PAC to donate almost $650,000 to the wife of Andrew McCabe, who is Deputy Director in charge of the Hillary email investigation, but he is also pardoning 60,000...

    It has been an increasingly caustic environment behind the scenes between Team Trump and GOP elites that has seen Republican power brokers effectively wall in the Trump campaign. GOP funding has been all but cut off, and so too has the institutionalized state-to-state ground game so critical in winning battleground states on Election Day. Donald Trump, and his millions of supporters, are truly on their own. The primary impetus behind this effort is said to be three-fold, coming in the form of House Speaker Paul Ryan, Ohio Governor John Kasich, and long-ago ousted, onetime GOP presidential front-runner, Jeb Bush.

    A global warming research center at the London School of Economics got millions of dollars from UK taxpayers by taking credit for research it didnt perform, an investigation by The Daily Mail revealed. The UK government gave $11 million dollars to the Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy (CCCEP) in exchange for research that the organization reportedly never actually did. Many papers CCCEP claimed to have published to get government money werent about global warming, were written before the organization was even founded, or were written by researchers unaffiliated with CCCEP.

    Clearly, the example of Eric Cantor didn't send a clear message. It's time to send a stronger one, and not just to Paul Ryan Many among the Republican Establishment are not getting the message. POLITICO reporters Jake Sherman and John Bresnahan wrote, in an article entitled “Ryan Abandons Trump,” that:
 “Ryan stopped short of formally rescinding his endorsement of Trump – but just short. His move carries immense risk and Ryan faced blowback from all sides: Trump and his surrogates preemptively warned Republican leaders they would pay a price for breaking from the nominee.”

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...

    In 2012, after Mitt Romney lost the presidential election, Bill Whittle delivered an address on Republican principles. The Timid Republican Party has substantially ignored those principles and is not guided by them. Party candidates nevertheless continue to mouth them at election time. Perhaps they understand what the voters want and recite their fealty to gettheir votes. 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...

    "Fox News cant say they were not warned this would be an outcome of their insufferable decision to continue promoting a media narrative in opposition to Donald Trump. The same thing happened to Macys Department Store after they dropped Trump."

    "Data compiled since the New York GOP primary shows that billionaire Donald Trumps popular vote total in 2016 in states that have voted so far significantly exceeds the vote totals that Mitt Romney, the 2012 nominee, had in those states in total."

    Ask a hundred U.S. citizens what the country needs more than anything and youre likely to get a hundred answers. An end to poverty, an end to racism, an end to terrorism, free college, an end to liberals, an end to conservatives, an end to climate change, a balanced budget, and on and on. Most responses would be likely be well-meaning, pie-in-the-sky fantasies with little forethought as nearly all of us are inclined to do now and again. Including me. I know its hard to believe that the Artful Dilettante himself engages in such flights of fancy, with outcomes devoid...
  • Why didn't Rubio and Carson hang in there after they were mathematically eliminated?

    Well, for one thing, it would be counterproductive. With three, four or five candidates drawing delegates, it simply prevents anyone from getting to 1237 and ensures that the GOPe gets to install one of their own establishment guys at the convention. The malleable "rules" are designed to to preserve, protect and defend the establishment ruling class. Nothing more. Cruz knows this. He has betrayed the grassroots.

    Only Donald Trump could cause two words, bombastic and outrageous(ness), to become the go to words in the 2016 presidential race. Only Trump could enable these words to become overnight rock stars in daily American political commentary.

    Ted Cruz has made few friends among Republicans in Washington during his nearly four years in the Senate, but his message to GOP elite as he looks to build support to the partys presidential nominee is that he would bring more Republicans along with him. In a private meeting with members of the Republican National Committee, the Cruz campaigns high command, including campaign manager Jeff Roe, strategist David Polyansky, and delegate-hunters Ken Cuccinelli and Saul Anuzis, made the case for Cruz as the partys stronger choice for the general election and argued hed help down-ballot GOP races. Mathematically eliminated from...

    I attended the GA 5th District Convention. About 50 people, the largest attendance they have ever had. As they have done in past presidential years, a nominating committee had prepared a slate of 3 delegates and 3 alternates. At least 4 others had emailed me that they also were running. The chair, parliamentarian, secretary and credentials chair on the platform were all on the slate As with 2012, the slate was rejected as a slate. There were nominations from the floor going head-to-head a slated individual vs those not slated. The chair and parliamentarian declared that it would require a...
