… HE WANTS HIM TO BE PRESIDENT

It’s been difficult tracking the “whack-a-mole-esque” presidential inclinations of Lindsey Graham – arguably America’s most liberal “Republican” Senator.  Graham had his own presidential campaign for awhile … but it ended poorly.  Then he endorsed the bid of former Florida governor Jeb Bush – which flamed out spectacularly following a dismal fourth-place finish in Graham’s home state of South Carolina.

Graham’s next thoughts on the presidential contest – specifically his views on U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas – came last week during an appearance before the Washington Press Club Foundation.

“If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody would convict you,” he joked.

That comment was broadly panned – in South Carolina and beyond.

In the aftermath of Super Tuesday, though – in which Cruz clearly outperformed “Republican” establishment favorite Marco Rubio in the battle for second place behind GOP frontrunner Donald Trump – Graham is continuing to make it up as he goes along.

(Sort of like he does with America’s foreign policy).

He Graham says “we may be in a position where we’ll have to rally around Ted Cruz as the one person to stop Donald Trump.”

Take a look …

Crazy …

“Lindsey Graham has become a parody,” one prominent national conservative activist told us.

“I think Lindsey Graham is bipolar,” another suggested.

We concur with both assessments … Graham went from wanting to kill Ted Cruz one week to wanting him to be president the next. If that’s not bipolar, we don’t know what is.

He’s not wrong, but it is probably too late for such a tactic to matter. Rubio probably won’t drop out until he loses Florida anyways.

I just read that Donald Jr gave an interview to a white nationalist radio host. And that the Trump campaign gave this racist press credentials for Trump’s rallies, while refusing entrance to legit media like the Des Moines Register.

A) Rubio will drop out before losing Florida to keep himself in contention for 2020.

B) If Rubio voters joined with Cruz – they would defeat Trump sometime around early to mid May.

Possibly Rubio’s fall back plan is a 2018 Fl Gov run?

Nothing he said is inconsistent. All the Senators hate Cruz because he only does things that benefit him. But they hate Trump more. In the end Cruz is a bought and paid for Politician. He will be owned by the donor class. They know how to deal with him. You just give him money or power and he will do what you want. They don’t know how to deal with Trump. Better the Devil you know than the Devil you don’t as far as the GOP is concerned.

The Republican party has lost control of their crazies. It was inevitable. And likely to be disastrous.

Very true. And it was inevitable. Unable to replace moderate educated Party members as they died off, and unable to attract new voters, the GOP was like a sauce, reducing to just mushroom broth and tomato paste. Now all that’s left is mindless 58+ year olds who still think its 1982, that they deserve to make $100K putting lugnuts on old Chevy Caprice Classics, and have 6 weeks paid holiday in Myrtle Beach and the north shore of Ohio. Oh, and they’re made that Toto stopped touring, and that the Eagles broke up.

Lindsey Graham was never a moderate on conservative issues, he never represented the views of the majority that elected him. He treated his constituents like they were children and he was a problem for SC long before Mr. Trump got in the game. I think the establishment should quit attacking and cut a deal with Trump and gain some influence with him, All of these Republicans should be stomping on Hillary and this is where they failed.

For the first time in my life I am questioning who I voted for in the past, always Republican establishment candidates. The absolute fear, hysteria, circle the wagon, “destroy” at all costs mentality that has developed in the “establishment class” when the possibility of a business person looking at the books makes me wonder if there are many, many secrets to be discovered, Remember that neither Perot, nor Forbes got his far, and since Forbes no business person has ran. Mitt was a Gov, and pure establishment I am thinking that here are many irregularities that will come out. Something stinks, and it is not the great love this people have for us the tax payers that is making them react his way. Something is way off and there is fear the lid will come off, once the books are checked.

“..I am questioning who I voted for in the past..”
At times, I do the same thing. But then, I realize that the alternative in most of the General Elections would induce worst regrets than pulling the trigger for a Republican.
I just wish the Republicans would find and put forth better candidates. I would seriously consider almost anyone, short of being a serial murderer, on the Republican ticket to oppose Lindsey Graham in a Republican primary.
But, you also have to consider that keeping your party in control in Washington, especially in Congress. If you don’t control the Presidency, Just imagine, right now if the Democrats controlled the Senate. We would have another ultra-liberal judge on the Supreme Court before the month is out.
The disdain for the republicans could be alleviated with better candidates contesting in the primaries.

Outsourcing Creates Jobs in the Long Run
by Donald J. Trump
Chairman, Trump University

We hear terrible things about outsourcing jobs–how sending work outside of our companies is contributing to the demise of American businesses. But in this instance I have to take the unpopular stance that it is not always a terrible thing.

I understand that outsourcing means that employees lose jobs. Because work is often outsourced to other countries, it means Americans lose jobs. In other cases, nonunion employees get the work. Losing jobs is never a good thing, but we have to look at the bigger picture.

Last year, Nobel Prize-winning economist Dr. Lawrence R. Klein, the founder of Wharton Econometric Forecasting Associates, co-authored a study that showed how global outsourcing actually creates more jobs and increases wages, at least for IT workers. The study found that outsourcing helped companies be more competitive and more productive. That means they make more money, which means they funnel more into the economy, thereby, creating more jobs.

I know that doesn’t make it any easier for people whose jobs have been outsourced overseas, but if a company’s only means of survival is by farming jobs outside its walls, then sometimes it’s a necessary step. The other option might be to close its doors for good.

That’s why H1B visas exist, to drive down the increasing wages for IT workers. Rich get richer, poor get poorer…

and thus comes Lindsey as the kiss of death to Cruz’s campaign, like his endorsement of Jeb.
