The uprising of the GOP base



Even though I am a Conservative and have been a registered Republican since I became old enough to vote, I really have no use for the RINOS which are now the Republican Party leadership.    

Trump is certainly not a check all of the conservative boxes to say the least, and he says things that shock the sensibilities of small government and free-market advocates.  
I’m sure many are sincere in their attempts to safeguard the Republican brand and conservatism as they understand it, but the elites of the GOP too often come off as apologists for the fat cat elites, often to the point of parody.  Unlike political hobbyists, most voters are not ideologues.  Many people vote viscerally and appearances and general impressions matter to them.  

Which candidate really cares about creating American jobs for the American working class, and more importantly, which candidate knows how?    If that’s the question for the angry GOP base, then Trump crushes Jeb, Lindsey Graham, and Christie.  That by no means guarantees Trump the nomination, but it certainly narrows down the field.

If nothing else, I sincerely hope that the uprising of the GOP base results in a makeover of the GOP leadership.




.

You absolutely MUST listen to these words of the President.



I don’t care if you are a Republican, a Democrat, or an Independent, a Christian, a Jew, or an Atheist, you absolutely MUST listen to these words of the President.


I had to play it several times because I could not believe what I was hearing…

Here is the full speech.

NO THIRD PARTY TICKET FOR TRUMP



There has been much speculation throughout this early 2016 campaign season regarding whether billionaire businessman Donald Trump would ditch the Republican Party and run for president as a third-party independent.
Perhaps some of that speculation can be laid to rest now, as Trump has reportedly told several top Republicans that he will commit to running on the GOP ticket.
This should assuage some of the worry by nervous Republicans concerned that a Trump third-party ticket would split the vote on the right, paving the way for the Democratic nominee to win the election.

Democrats on the other hand are silently cursing, as they really wanted Trump to do just that, split the Republican vote and allow their candidate to win.

The leftist News Media is Lying About what REALLY happened at this Event…



Donald Trump’s recent exchange of words with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos has caused quite a stir in the media, with many media pundits accusing Trump of violating the First Amendment.
During the exchange, Trump was answering questions from reporters when Ramos started asking Trump questions without being called on. Trump repeatedly asked the man to take his seat, but he refused.

Eventually, security escorted Ramos out of the press conference. Shortly after, Ramos was let back in and allowed to ask his question.

Many media outlets have been playing this story up, claiming that Trump doesn’t like freedom of the press and that he was restricting the media’s right to ask questions.

I would LOVE to see a TRUMP/CRUZ ticket...2nd choice would be a TRUMP/CARSON ticket...



Ann Coulter Introduces Trump At Iowa Speech: "God Hasn't Given Up On America Yet"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=128&v=3lXMaOCsoMo

Conservative political commentator, Ann Coulter, supports Donald Trump’s controversial immigration-reform proposals.

She called the Republican presidential front-runner’s ideas, which include deporting all 11 million undocumented immigrants, “absolutely magnificent.”

“I feel like I’m dreaming. I can’t believe I’m turning on the TV and seeing people even talk about anchor babies. I want to kiss (Trump) for refusing to back away from that phrase,” Coulter declared.

Later in the interview, she said: “(The term) ‘anchor babies’ comes from a footnote in a Justice Brennan decision from 1982; the idea (that) this is why our ancestors fought at Valley Forge – so that illegal immigrants could run across the border, drop a baby and that baby would be a citizen and could bring in the whole family and start collecting welfare right away. I mean, there are nearly half a million a year anchor babies coming in. The idea that a country has no control over who gets to be a citizen in our country is utter madness.”

Coulter accused the news media of trying to “never let Americans think about immigration because they know if we get into the debate they’re going to lose.” She added: “There are too many left-wing groups out there working overtime to keep pumping in the most pleasant, poorest cultures in the world to just keep block voting for the Democrats.”

I would LOVE to see a TRUMP/CRUZ ticket...

2nd choice would be a TRUMP/CARSON ticket...

The Iranian misdeal



What do you see in this nuclear deal with Iran? 
I see history repeating itself. 
In 1938, Prime Minister Chamberlain made a deal promising peace with Hitler. Months later Hitler invaded Poland.  In 1994, President Clinton struck a deal with our enemy, North Korea.  North Korea violated the deal in a few short years and obtained nuclear weapons.  And now in 2015, the United States has struck a deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran, the world’s foremost State sponsor of terror.
We've seen deals like this in the past.  Deals promising peace but result in bringing us closer to war.  We cannot let history repeat itself!  Why do we think that this deal will have a different outcome?  Iran is the leading state sponsor of terrorism.  This deal will give them hundreds of billions of dollars and puts them on the path to getting nuclear weapons.  They continually chant “death to America” and burn our flag in rallies to celebrating the recent deal.  Does this deal really make us safer?  OR will it increase the likelihood of our children facing nuclear war in the future?

 

This deal has too many loopholes.

Under this agreement Iran is permitted to continue developing the centrifuges it needs to enrich uranium to weapons grade. Iran is allowed to continue developing and building intercontinental ballistic missiles. Iran will be able to keep most all of its nuclear infrastructure. Sanctions on Iran will be lifted long before Iran finishes making the changes in its nuclear program the agreement does require. We need to close these and other loopholes.
Sources: IAEA Report, June 2015; Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, 7/14/15; Reuters, 7/14/15; Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Twitter:  "Upon #Iran Deal implementation all sanctions will be lifted - not suspended."; MarketWatch, 7/15/15.

 

This deal does not allow surprise anytime, anywhere inspections.

Because Iran has violated over 20 international agreements and consistently lied to International Atomic Energy Agency inspectors, we cannot trust Iran to abide by this agreement. As every official from the President on down has said, we must have surprise anytime, anywhere inspections to know whether Iran is cheating. Yet this agreement, prevents those inspections. If Iran objects to a requested inspection, a committee which includes Iran, Russia and China would deliberate. While the committee is deciding what to do, the Iranians can hide evidence of their activity.

This deal would fuel a Middle East nuclear arms race, making the world less safe.

Saudi Arabia already said it does not believe this deal will be effective, and that it will match Iran’s nuclear capability. News reports indicate it is planning to buy a nuclear weapon from another country. Algeria, the UAE, Qatar, Turkey and others are also preparing to become nuclear weapons states if this deal is approved. Any additional nuclear weapons in the world’s most unstable region just increases the chances they will fall into the hands of terrorists. Iran itself is the world largest funder and sponsor of terrorist groups in the world.
Source: Washington Post, 7/14/

 

Even if Iran’s leaders abide by this agreement, the regime will be dangerously close to having nuclear weapons.

Even if Iran does not cheat at all, this agreement will keep it only one year away from a nuclear weapon. After 10-15 years Iran’s leaders could get a weapon within two months. That’s just too dangerous for America, for Israel and for the world, when we are dealing with a regime like Iran’s. Only one country in the world has stated that its policy is to wipe another country “off the face of the earth”—Iran.
Source: New York Times, 6/23/15, Op-Ed, Alan Kuperman, Associate Professor, University of Texas at Austin

 

This deal allows Iran to continue developing and to build Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles.

Iran’s government is spending hundreds of millions developing intercontinental ballistic missiles that can reach points around the globe. This agreement allows it to continue developing ICBMs. There is only one reason for Iran to have ICBMs: for offensive military action.

200 retired US generals lobby Congress to reject Iran deal

A group of nearly 200 retired generals and admirals sent a letter to Congress on Wednesday urging lawmakers to reject the Iran nuclear agreement, which they say threatens national security.

SOURCE: https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/retired-generals-and-admirals-urge-congress-to-reject-iran-deal/2015/08/26/8912d9c6-4bf5-11e5-84df-923b3ef1a64b_story.html?postshare=1061440614174911


Brief Summery
1.     We need to give a 24 day notice of inspections for facilities that are NOT on the list.  If Iran refuses, they can appeal to the committee that they sit on and have the ability to veto a decision.
2.     When requiring a soil sample from around facilities believed to be handling nuclear material, Iran can decide to provide the sample themselves.  No inspector involved.
3.     No Americans are allowed to be part of the inspection teams.
4.     Only inspectors approved by the Iranian Guard (secret service) are allowed to be inspectors.
5.     Iran has received, or will receive, over $100 billion in sanction money.  They went right to the Russians to buy weapons and delivery systems.  They have been hanging with the North Koreans at all missile launches and nuclear testing.
6.     The U.S. wants to require Iran to give a full accounting of its past actions.  JUST before the deal was signed, Kerry said the United States already knows with certainty what Iran did in the past and that a full accounting is less important than monitoring what it does in the future.  Then why did we ask for it?
7.     Iran can’t (or isn’t supposed to) supply weapons to others, yet they have been caught selling arms to many in their region, maybe to help see the fruition of “Death to America” or “Death to Israel.”
8.     We, the American people, were told nothing of side deals.
9.     Within 5 years they are allowed to purchase conventional weapons. Hellooo… they’re already purchasing them from Russia!
10. Within 10 years they will be able to purchase ballistic missiles. Newsflash, they’re already making deal with North Korea!
11. And, (this is the part I find unbelievable) Iran will be allowed to use its OWN inspectors to check out a site that is suspected of enriching weapons grade uranium.  

Can those on the Left really believe that a regime who hates us, that is breaking the same rules it says it will abide by before the ink is dry, who shouts “death to America,” is buying weapons from Russia, and learning how to make and launch nukes from North Korea can be trusted to do their own inspections?  

This is like letting a known pedophile baby set your kids because he promised to not touch them, all the while he has child porn up on his smart phone? REALLY?




   


Is Ted Cruz Qualified to be President, and is he even Eligible?



We do know what traits are found in all of our most successful presidents regardless of party and ideology: courage of conviction, steadfast perseverance in the face of his enemies either foreign or domestic, and the ability to command the mightiest bully pulpit in the world.

Enter, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, whose critics scoff that he lacks the experience to be president. “What has Ted Cruz accomplished?” they sneeringly ask.

Well, for starters Cruz has been one of the most successful conservative/constitutional advocacy litigators in recent memory. He’s been on the winning side of numerous landmark cases involving states’ rights, religious freedom, and the Second Amendment (just to name a few) before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Like it or not (and I don’t by the way), with every governor in this country for the last several decades surrendering their constitutional authority to judicial tyranny (and that includes all the GOP current and former governors in this field), the federal courts where Cruz has a documented record of success are where the real conservative policy fights take place. And there, Cruz fights and wins, on issues a lot more nationally significant than a governor’s ability to make the trains run on time or sign pro-life legislation that courts will just nullify later on anyway.

Thus, it could be argued there isn’t a candidate in the 2016 GOP field who has done more to defend our liberties than Cruz has.

We have three branches of government, and right now (unfortunately) the most powerful among them is the judicial branch. No one in this race has Cruz’s experience and track record of success within that branch.

Another branch of government is the legislative branch. To win the seat in the U.S. Senate he now holds, Cruz had to assemble a campaign capable of beating the GOP establishment—including Karl Rove and the Bushes. And he had to do it in one of the most expensive campaign states in the country. Texas claims six of the nation’s top 100 television markets, and its vast size makes a trip from Dallas to El Paso within its own borders twice as far as one from Chicago (Illinois) to St. Louis (Missouri).

And Cruz didn’t just beat the establishment, but he beat the hand-picked Lt. Governor backed by Governor Rick Perry at the time to do it. Therefore, in addition to defeating Leftist judges in court, Cruz has proven he can defeat the feckless GOP establishment that often nominates and/or confirms those same judges. For example, fourteen of the judges who have attempted to nullify pro-marriage laws were Republican appointees.

So tell me, who else in this strong 2016 presidential field has shown they have what it takes to beat the courts and the GOP establishment – the two biggest obstacles standing between conservatives and the Democrats?

Cruz has already compiled a record of success at the highest levels of two of our three branches of government. That doesn’t mean he’s automatically entitled to your support as the next head of the executive branch. But it does mean he’s earned at least an opportunity to make his case.

Unless you don’t think a Lincoln, Eisenhower, or Madison has anything to offer.



I have heard a lot of discussion as to whether or not Cruz, Rubio, and Jindel meet the constitutional requirements to be eligible to become President.  All I can say to that is; “if Obama is eligible, then these three men are most certainly eligible”.    

One thing that I feel certain of is that Ted Cruz is not part of the "Politician" class. I remember his all night filibuster and was impressed at the way he handled the attacks from both sides toward the end, and I have admired him from that very moment.    He is a man who represents his constituents and has a phenomenal upbringing and family.  He brings class to the debate and he is one of the candidates that I strongly support at this time.  

As soon as some of the lesser inconsequential candidates disappear, more focus will be placed on the message of the strongest few that remain.  Personally, I sincerely hope Cruz will be one of those strongest remaining, and I believe he will be.   At least we can look at Ted Cruz's college transcripts. No one can find out anything about Obama's background!  He is a total blank!

If a President puts Americans and America first, builds a military that can protect us, can lower taxes and bring jobs back to America, then he is qualified.  But if that person hates America, hates white people, makes decisions that intentionally hurt America, skyrockets welfare, supports looting and rioting and martyrs thugs and criminals, apologizes to other countries and bows to them, appeases terrorists, and praises Islam, then only the Democrats think he's qualified.

Former Attorney General said: Clinton May Have “Disqualified Herself for Elected Office”



Michael Mukasey, who was the Unites States Attorney General from 2007 to 2009, showed up on Morning Joe today to discuss the Hillary Clinton private server debacle and how it was going to play out.  This wasn’t his first cable news hit on the subject and he’d been making the rounds, pointing out that this investigation “is not a witch hunt,” as he said on interviews over the weekend.  
In response to one question from Scarborough, Mukasey went a step further and said that Clinton may have disqualified herself from elected office if the allegations prove to be true.
Now, that’s a phrase we’ve heard before, but generally in a philosophical sense.  “If you do this or that bad thing, you’ve essentially disqualified yourself as being the leader of the free world.”  But when the former AG was pressed on the question, he informed the panel that he was speaking specifically of federal statute.


Not only should she be disqualified she must be prosecuted, every other American would be.  The United State Government cannot sit by and allow this and then go after someone else of lesser influence.  Ignorance of the Law does not negate the law.   And since she is an attorney and knows the laws (or should) better than we, she should be held to a higher standard (not lower).

The fact that she seems not to know better should preclude her from running for President or any high office for our country, because it appears that either she is too stupid, has no ethics or is playing stupid and is deceitful.  Either way you look at it, she's not fit.

Why anyone could vote for someone like her is beyond me...I mean from everyone dying around her to her assistant being an Iranian with ties to extremist....our world has gone absolutely mad.   At this juncture people are asking if we will ever see justice again.  This current administration is so corrupt and above the law it is frustrating.   


She deserves some prison time, but Obama will probably pardon her before she ever sees the inside of a prison.

This country’s entire economy is a huge disaster.



The stock market is NOT just in a summer slow down.
The whole global economy since 2008 has been driven forward by this massive investment and construction and borrowing spree in China.   We all knew it couldn’t last forever, and I believe that it's over.
Artificially inflated bubbles created by the Federal Reserve cannot last forever.   I think what we are seeing is the beginning evidence that the central bank-driven credit economy is over and we are in a new era.

U.S. stocks traded more than 2 percent lower on Friday, extending a recent rout, as concerns about slowing global growth continued to pressure investor sentiment. 

The Dow Jones industrial average trimmed losses after briefly falling into correction territory, losing more than 470 points as all blue chips declined. In the last five years, the index has only had four instances with closing losses of more than 400 points.

Tourism is Booming in America



Yes, that’s right; Tourism is Booming in America, and most Americans are not even aware of it.  
It’s a type of tourism called Birth Tourism, and it does not get much attention by the news media.  
The significant benefits of U.S. citizenship and the executive branch’s permissive birthright citizenship policies have become a magnet for those seeking to add a U.S. passport holder to their family. An entire industry of “birth tourism” has been created and the phenomenon of pregnant women traveling (legally) to the United States specifically for the purpose of giving birth on U.S. soil has grown largely without any debate in Congress or the consent of the public.

“It’s easy. If you register the birth, it’s automatic that your baby can get an American passport,” said Kim Jeong Yeon, a Korean woman who traveled to the United States on a tourist visa while six months pregnant.  Like many other women, Kim spent thousands of dollars to have a company arrange the travel. “If they could afford it, all my friends would go to the United States to have their babies,” she said.

According to Selin Burcuoglu, a Turkish woman who traveled to the United States to give birth last year, the process was easy: “We found a company on the Internet and decided to go to Austin for our child’s birth. It was incredibly professional. They organized everything for me. I had no problem adjusting and I had an excellent birth. I don’t want her to deal with visa issues — American citizenship has so many advantages.” 

Birth tourism can be a lucrative business for immigrants who facilitate the travel and birthing process for their former countrymen. Turkish doctors, hotel owners, and immigrant families in the United States have assembled what amounts to a birth-tourism assembly line, reportedly arranging the U.S. birth of 12,000 Turkish children since 2003. The Turkish-owned Marmara Hotel group offers a “birth tourism package” that includes accommodations at their Manhattan branch. “We hosted 15 families last year,” said Nur Ercan Mağden, head manager of The Marmara Manhattan, adding that the cost was $45,000 each. 

Similarly, the Tucson Medical Center (TMC) in Arizona offers a “birth package” to expectant mothers and actively recruits in Mexico. Expectant mothers can schedule a Caesarean or simply arrive a few weeks before their due date. The cost reportedly ranges from $2,300 to $4,600 and includes a hospital stay, exams, and a massage. Additional children trigger a surcharge of $500. 

“These are families with a lot of money, and some arrive on private jets and are picked up by an ambulance and brought here,” said Shawn Page, TMC’s administrator of international services and relations. 

In California, three Chinese-owned “baby care centers” offer expectant mothers a place to give birth to an American citizen for a fee of $14,750, which includes shopping and sightseeing trips. For a $35 daily fee, television, internet, and three meals are provided. “We don’t encourage moms to break the law — just to take advantage of it,” explains Robert Zhou, the agency’s owner. Zhou says that he and his wife have helped up to 600 women give birth in the United States within the last five years. In fact, they started the business after traveling to the United States to have a child of their own. 

Zhou explains that the number of agencies like his has soared in the past five years.
Zhou believes that a cheaper education is often a motivating factor and his pitch to prospective clients includes the notion that public education in the United States is “free.” One of his clients, Christina Chuo, explains that her parents “paid a huge amount of money for their education” in the United States because they were foreign students; having an American citizen child permits her child to acquire the same education at a lower tuition. She also noted that she and her husband were not interested in permanently immigrating to the United States, “except, perhaps, when they retire.” 

As discussion about limiting birthright citizenship heats up in the United States, some foreign countries are concerned about possible changes. The Nigerian media, for example, recently published an article titled, “American Agitations Threaten a Nigerian Practice.” The practice referred to is that of Nigerians traveling to the United States to have a child — a practice that, according to the newspaper, is “spreading so fast that it is close to becoming an obsession.” 

The U.S. State Department is not permitted to deny a woman a temporary visitor visa simply because she is pregnant and the legal document she obtains means she is not likely to be stopped at the border.  Consequently, the practice of granting automatic birthright citizenship allows a seemingly temporary admission of one foreign visitor to result in a permanent increase in immigration and grants of citizenship that were not necessarily contemplated or welcomed by the American public. Add to this the fact that immigration authorities are less likely to deport a visitor who overstays their permitted time if they have a U.S. citizen child, and one ends up with an immigration policy quite different from that which was originally intended.

The birth tourism industry illustrates how the executive branch’s permissive birthright citizenship policies can have the effect of transferring control over the nation’s immigration policy from the American people to foreigners.

Over the last few decades, many of those few countries with automatic birthright citizenship policies have changed their law as a means of discouraging illegal immigration and to give citizens more control over the future of their societies. The countries that have ended the practice in recent years include the United Kingdom, Australia, Ireland, India, Malta, New Zealand, and the Dominican Republic.  Barbados and Antigua & Barbuda may also be ending the practice as the nations look for ways to cope with illegal immigration.

Donald Trump wants to put an end to this “birthright citizenship” nonsense.

Look How Much of America Agrees With Trump



With a country that feels more divided than ever on so many issues, it’s encouraging to find areas of widespread agreement, especially across party lines.

While 80% of likely voters agree with Trump on the deportation of all illegal immigrant felons, President Obama’s immigration plans don’t fare so well. Yet Emperor Obama marches onward with his executive actions on immigration, American people — and Congress — be damned.


How long has it been since you called or emailed your Senatos and Representatives?
WELL, THAT’S TOO LONG…

This Administration is Releasing Criminal Aliens into Our Neighborhoods



According to a Texas Department of Safety report, in five-and-a-half years, there were more than 600,000 criminal charges against illegal aliens.  AND, That’s only Texas.  
So, while ICE celebrated the apprehension of its 300th criminal illegal alien in fiscal year 2015 yesterday (out of millions that should be deported), they were simultaneously releasing animals like the following into our community.

Is our immigration system broken? You bet it is!
But it has nothing to do with the law.
It has everything to do with lack of enforcement of the law.

No matter if you love or hate Donald Trump, You most realize he is dead right on this issue.




Obama drives down coal company stocks, and Soros buys them up cheap



I have always believed that global warming is a gigantic scam, driven by greed and lust for power.  
Now comes the shocking news, via Steve Milloy writing on Breitbart, that following President Obama’s use of CO2 emissions as a weapon to drive major coal companies near bankruptcy, the ultimate politically connected speculator George Soros is buying up stock in major coal producers on the cheap.

It never was about “save the planet”.  It has always been about “money, power, and control”.   READ MORE HERE: http://christianpoliticalparty.com/wow-obama-drives-down-coal-company-stocks-and-soros-buys-them-on-the-cheap/
   



Jeb Bush Would be as bad as Hillary…SERIOUSLY.



Jeb Bush Says NSA needs broader powers to combat 'evildoers'
Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush said Tuesday that the government should have broad surveillance powers of Americans and private technology firms should cooperate better with intelligence agencies to help combat "evildoers."
At a national security forum in the early voting state of South Carolina, Bush put himself at odds with Republican congressional leaders who earlier this year voted to end the National Security Agency's bulk collection of phone records.

The former Florida governor said Congress should revisit its changes to the Patriot Act, and he dismissed concerns from civil libertarians who say the program violated citizens' constitutionally protected privacy rights.

"There's a place to find common ground between personal civil liberties and NSA doing its job," Bush said. "I think the balance has actually gone the wrong way."

ALSO, Bush told CBS News that he disagreed with rival Donald Trump on the birthright of children born in the United States to parents who are immigrants living in the country illegally.

"That's a constitutional right," Bush said. "Mr. Trump can say he's for this because people are frustrated that it's abused. We ought to fix the problem rather than take away rights that are constitutionally endowed."

Bush also opposed Trump's idea of a fence or wall along the border.

"It's not realistic to create a fence in places where fences can't be built. You'd have people, American citizens, on the south side of the fence in some places. Or they're on the wrong side of the fence," Bush said.

Trey Gowdy gets a standing ovation on House Floor



On Wednesday Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), sponsor of the “Enforce the Law Act,” gave an very passionate speech defending the need for legislation to stop Obama’s power grab.  

Five Democrats joined the Republican majority to advance a bill that would authorize the House or Senate to sue the executive branch for not enforcing laws.  Gowdy received a standing O on the House floor.

ARE WE BEING PLAYED BY DONALD TRUMP?



Donald Trump would have my full support if I knew he would not run as an Independent. 
The possibility of that should have all conservatives concerned because the more popular he becomes, the more damage he Would do running as an independent.  

He reminds me so much of Ross Perot.  Like Perot, he is a Billionaire.  Like Perot, he is saying what Conservatives want to hear.

Remember when Bill Clinton ran for President?  He didn't stand much of a chance until Billionaire Ross Perot ran as an independent and split the conservative vote.   Then four years latter when ole slick Willie ran for re-election, the same damned thing happened.

Now the Democrats are faced with the same problem.  Just about ANY candidate that wins the Republication nomination can beat any candidate the Democrats can come up with...unless an independent splits the conservative vote again.

I will not vote for Trump as an independent, but I will vote for him as a Republican.   Why would I?

Because I want my border secured and illegal aliens prosecuted and/or deported.   I want a military strong enough to contend with Iran, Russia, China, and any number of no-official enemies.   I want jobs brought back to America, and not just part time jobs.   I want the EPA and Homeland security out of my personal life and business.  I don't want non-elected people making laws - especially laws that violate the constitution.  The only candidates, other than Trump who seem to agree with me on those important issues are Ted Cruz and Ben Carson.

My worst nightmare is that Trump will go Independent, split the conservative vote, and we end up with the likes of Bernie Sanders, or Biden, or Al Gore as President.  And I can’t help but wonder if maybe that has been the secret plan all along.

It is no secret that Trump has been pretty Liberal on a lot of issues in the past.  He was even registered as a Democrat, and for all I know, he may still be.  It is also no secret that he supported Bill Clinton, Obama, and Hillary Clinton.  It is also no secret that he is a very clever business man who knows how to get what he wants.
Maybe I’m just a little too conservative to trust a guy who voted for Obama and who not only supported Hillary Clinton but thought it was a cool move to bribe her to come to his wedding.


 
Here’s a very interesting story in the Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/bill-clinton-called-donald-trump-ahead-of-republicans-2016-launch/2015/08/05/e2b30bb8-3ae3-11e5-b3ac-8a79bc44e5e2_story.html
And Vanity-fair: http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2015/08/bill-clinton-called-donald-trump-before-presidential-run-2016

I had a really scary though the other day; how can we be sure that Ross Perot was really serious about wanting to be President?  How do we know that it wasn’t all a big scam from the get-go to get slick Willy elected? 
    
I hope to God I am wrong about this, but IF and WHEN he switches from Republican to Independent, I will REALLY be worried.



UPDATE
I may be wrong about Trump.
He may be the real deal.  He is as far as I’m concerned until and unless he goes Independent.
Washington (CNN)Donald Trump has won his party's trust on top issues more than any other Republican presidential candidate, and now stands as the clear leader in the race for the GOP nomination, according to a new CNN/ORC poll.

The survey finds Trump with the support of 24% of Republican registered voters. His nearest competitor, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, stands 11 points behind at 13%. Just behind Bush, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has 9%, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker 8%, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul 6%, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, former tech CEO Carly Fiorina and Ohio Gov. John Kasich all land at 5%, with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee rounding out the top 10 at 4%.
Trump is the biggest gainer in the poll, up 6 points since July according to the first nationwide CNN/ORC poll since the top candidates debated in Cleveland on Aug. 6. Carson gained 5 points and Fiorina 4 points. Trump has also boosted his favorability numbers among Republicans, 58% have a favorable view of Trump now, that figure stood at 50% in the July survey.
