    As a 5th generation Republican and Lifelong Conservative the political events of recent years have been frustrating. None are more frustrating than this election cycle. We prayed and hoped for a real Conservative to counter the leftward pull of Obama. We wanted someone to pull the country to the right so we could possibly be, at least, center America, where we typically like to land in national politics. We have had several Conservative candidates this cycle, but many who have called themselves "Conservative" have coalesced behind a man who is the farthest thing from Conservative as is imaginable and why?...

Every time a TV watcher, especially the undecided voters, sees these people cursing Trump, cursing the United States, and waving the Mexican flag, those viewers are going to say to themselves, Trump is right, send the thankless SOBs back to Mexico! Let them riot, 'cause it's about to be "adios, baby."

    It appears that Trump is on track to achieve around 60 per cent of the vote in all five primary states tonight. He will almost certainly be well over 50% in all of them. With two other "contenders" in the race, that is quite an achievement. But these wins were UNDERSTATED.

Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are peripheral characters. Both will continue to pursue their best strategy to the nomination, Trump on first ballot, Cruz on 2nd or 3rd (most likely 4th after Florida delegates are released). There will be a contested convention because the media will push for it. 1. Blood in the streets in Cleveland? Damn, that's a generational story. Somebody's gonna win a Pulitzer here. 2. Permanent...

The reverse however, is completely unacceptable and racist. We give blacks and hispanics extra points on admission tests but none for whites. We don't have any laws protecting whites from minorities in power. Recently, I have seen where...

    Have any of you been watching "The Five" lately? What's with Juan? Especially on Tuesdays edition of The Five. When Juan was done speaking, then it was Melissa's turn to speak, and within 2 or 3 seconds, here comes Juan, as usual, trying to silence her as she was trying to form an opinion. Then we had to listen to both Juan and Melissa talking at the same time. It's a wonder Fox hasn't fired Juan from the show at this point. Even today,Juan had to start talking when it wasn't his turn. It seems that Juan Just Never Shuts...
  • Cable News Channels, FNC, MSNBC & CNN badly behind the times.

    The cable news channels, Fox News Channel (FNC), MSNBC & Cable News Network (CNN) are sadly behind the times in timely news reporting relative to the 2016 POTUS race. Simple....they continue to play up Ted Cruz when the gent is coming apart at his seams. First, Cruz attacks New Yorkers, then yesterday he attacks all Italian-Americans. The neglect of this news is understandable, considering the bias of the cable news channels. But....what is not forgivable, their outright failure to proclaim the political nightmare that Ted Cruz is about to go through in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Rhode...

    Why put voters through a bogus process? Is it to give us the appearance we have a choice? I think maybe so. And all that donor money wasted on a bogus process. Hmmmmmmmm. Somebody is getting all those millions spent on the political process.

    Michael J. Fox is a tragic shell of his former self and so crippled by Parkinson’s disease that he needs help getting into a car. On Feb. 15, the reclusive 54-year-old actor tried to enjoy a rare night out with his actress wife Tracy Pollan at the Hollywood restaurant Craig's. As Pollan followed, the stricken Back to the Future star, whose speech is slurred and who walks with a limp while dragging his left foot, was put into the vehicle by several helpers. "It was heartbreaking," an insider told RadarOnline.com. "Michael's bravery knows no bounds. But as the disease takes...

    Senator Ted Cruz went off on Donald Trump during an interview Tuesday with host, Glenn Beck. Cruz called the New York businessman a "Cosa Nostra" mobster...insulting all Italian-America with his contiuing, hate lie telling!!! First Cruz insults all New Yorkers, now, he, insults all Italian-Americans. Who is next, Irish-Americans, Jewish-Americans, African-Americans, etc. My....what a low life bigot...Mr. Ted Cruz is. Certainly not POTUS caliber material. I might remind the ignorant bigot, Cruz that New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, California have vast numbers of Italian-Americans...who will not take kindly to his hateful remarks. I think Cruz...

    I invite FReepers to discuss what they know about Salem Media and Salem Cimmunications. From what I can find out, they are owned by the GOPe and in turn own Mark Levin, Beck and Erikson and probably Limbaugh. It is chilling to see our "heroes@ cheer on our disenfranchisement. The conservative treehouse is a small venue, but would appear to be on top of this issue.
