    Based on current delegate counts and poll numbers Ted Cruz will be mathematically unable to reach the delegate count required for him to win the Republican Presidential nomination.  By the end April it will be clear that Ted Cruz has no chance of reaching the 1,237 delegates needed to win the nomination.Actually in only 3 weeks, on April 26th, it will be clear that Ted Cruz cannot win. (chart from Google) Currently Cruz has only 463 delegates. Even if Cruz wins Wisconsin, which is a state whose delegates are winner take most (WTM), he still will not have enough delegates to...

    Conservative TV personality Glenn Beck had a funny way of defending his main squeeze Ted Cruz on his program Monday morning. He burst out laughing and said, “I have to tell you, it’s been a hard Monday morning. We were all been raped by Ted Cruz.” Beck was referring to himself and his male colleagues. Realizing that starting out the show with a fake rape scene was probably in poor taste, he promised viewers they’d clean themselves up and try to do a show without “all the Latin lovin’.” But first Beck needs a post-coital smoke. “I need a cigarette,”...

"But Reagan can reach across and cause mischief in the Democratic constituency," Mr. Lewis says. "Reagan appeals to blue collar, working-class voters. He can win Democratic votes..."

As the primary wore on through the summer of 2015, it became clear that the GOP electorate was not interested in governors of accomplishment, but I still had hope for a final contest between two of my favorite Senators: Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.

    CHARLESTON, South Carolina, February 18, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – A pivotal member of Marco Rubio's campaign actively encouraged the Supreme Court to impose gay "marriage" on the entire nation by judicial fiat. Senator Rubio's deputy campaign manager, Rich Beeson, signed a legal brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to redefine marriage in last summer's Obergefell v. Hodges case. The amicus curiae brief, which was signed by 300 Republican operatives whose names spill over 24 pages, argued that having the court discover a nationwide right to same-sex "marriage" served "conservative values." The state marriage protection amendments defining marriage as the union of...

Western sanctions, low oil prices and the falling ruble have wiped billions off the wealth of Russia's 15 richest men, according to data from Bloomberg. The chairman of Russian gas producer Novatek has suffered the biggest losses, seeing his portfolio shrink by an estimated $8.7 billion. That's equivalent to a loss of nearly 50%.

While that might sound hypocritical to most, Farah claims he can do so because the so-called media elite ignored his "birther" theory about Obama. In a recent op-ed, Farah praised sen.

    News reports that California's Prop 8 has been struck down as unconstitutional are completely false. Proposition 8 is the amendment to the California Constitution that defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman. A federal trial judge--Vaughn Walker--held that Prop 8 violates the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
