THE “LOYALTY PLEDGE” IS BACK …
Earlier this week we wrote about how South Carolina’s “Republican” establishment – led by governor Nikki Haley – was participating in the ongoing scheming to keep Donald Trump from getting the GOP presidential nomination.
Missed that story? Click here …
Basically, “Republican” elites are looking for any way they can find to keep Trump from hitting the magic number of 1,237 delegates on the first ballot at this summer’s national convention in Cleveland, Ohio. Assuming they can keep him from hitting that mark, broad swaths of the delegates won by Trump via the popular vote during the primary process will go elsewhere.
In fact those delegates might even go to a candidate who didn’t compete in any of those primaries. Like this Washington insider.
Sound like democracy in action? Of course not … but the consultant class in America has determined that the “will of the people is crap.”
They will choose the nominee, not the voters.
The latest effort to rob Trump of his fifty South Carolina delegates? News that the controversial frontrunner has joined other establishment “Republicans” and retracted his pledge of support for the eventual GOP nominee.
Asked this week whether he still believed he was bound to honor his “loyalty pledge” given the extent to which the GOP establishment has come after him, Trump had a blunt answer.
“No. I don’t anymore,” Trump said.
That response set the plotters in motion …
“Breaking South Carolina’s presidential primary ballot pledge raises some unanswered legal questions that no one person can answer,” SCGOP chairman Matt Moore told Time. “However, a court or national convention committee on contests could resolve them. It could put delegates in jeopardy.”
Moore is treading on very dangerous ground. First of all, establishment hacks have been breaking this loyalty oath repeatedly … for months. Much like the “Republican” party’s loyalty to taxpayers, the pledge isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on.
Still, the oath appears to be the latest ploy in the GOP’s bid to disenfranchise its own voters en masse.
Will they succeed? We’ll find out soon enough …
I don’t like Trump, I can’t stand Nikki, but it makes me mad that he would not get the delegates.
You sir are a patriot!
On both R and D sides, it has made me see that winner take all allocation of delegates is NOT the way to go in our way, way too long primary season.
Plus, ALL delegates are only bound on the first vote.
Keep in mind that the primary season was NOT always as long as it is now…and, caucuses are worthless.
I did not vote for Trump. That being said I would like to see your points of contention with him. Look at anything he has said in an objective manner,compare it to what others that are running have said and the path that America is on and I think you will find yourself very surprised if you are honest with yourself.
Trump may be our only chance to save America and I am not big enough fool to believe he can by himself. I have come to the conclusion that he should have a chance and be impeached if he does not toe the line bit I also know that cant and wont happen because politicians in America are corrupt and serve self and the interest of the money folks behind them.
I heard Trump was being aborted by his trophy wife
I heard millions of black babies were being aborted by planned parenthood. Msm never asks first black president anything about it.
Because abortion is legal. I hear tens of millions of people purchased new cars too. Again, that’s legal as well.
Of course abortion is legal and likely always will be, even if we were under sharia law. The point of the (((media))) even bringing up abortion is moot.
If they take these delegates away, I and any person who supported Trump will vote for a third party or the Democratic nominee. The GOP will have been proven corrupt to the core and must be dismantled.
Earlier this week we wrote about how South Carolina’s “Republican” establishment – led by governor Nikki Haley – was participating in the ongoing scheming to keep Donald Trump from getting the GOP presidential nomination.
It’s not going to happen.Trump met with RNC today and there will be NO major rule changes from 2012.That also means if you didn’t win the majority in 8 states (Romney Rule from 2012 to keep Paul out) you can’t be on ANY ballot.
Haley just continues to make herself poison to ANYBODY on the national political scene.
The RNC only said that stuff because they think Cruz has a good chance to win major delegates. If these next few elections turn south for Cruz then the fix will be in.
It does not matter anyways because Hillary is polling so high above Trump that for Trump to win the nom it would mean the Republicans threw away another election, just like 2012…
I think they even agree they’ve already thrown it.
Columnist Charles Krauthammer predicted that Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be “either indicted, or there’s a criminal referral somehow squashed by the higher ups” for her email practices on Thursday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.
Krauthammer said, [relevant remarks begin around 4:20] “The ultimate irony is that the reason she embarked on all of this was to hide her communications from the world, from the Freedom of Information Act, from the Congress. That was the point. There’s no other point in doing this. It’s meant to evade subpoenas, inquiries, congressional Committees. And now it’s all over the — I mean, everything is out there. we know that 22 of these were extremely highly secret.”
He added, “I think she gets either indicted, or there’s a criminal referral somehow squashed by the higher ups. I can’t see her getting away from this with nothing.”
Yeah, because Krauthammer works for the FBI. This is the new GOP mantra – “she should be indicated and if she’s not, it’s because Vince Foster’s body was stolen from his grave, and it was a conspiracy higher up by the Moooslim, and everyone knows it’s because Hillary has pictures of Comey having sex with Guilianni.” As predictable as fire ants eating a grub.
And take the crooked Super Delegate Democrats with them.
The GOP will have proven that the GOP still has the ideology that it has had for decades and Trump never has.
Trump is no more a Republican than Bernie is a Democrat. If either one had any honor, they would be running as independents.
But, like the Libertarians made their takeover of the Party of Lincoln, Trump and Sanders wanted to make use of a party name and organization that they had little use for until they wanted to run for president.
They are both maggots.
Barack Hussein Obama ran as a Democrat, is an American hating ‘closet’ Muslim/ISIS/Communist sympathizer and won.
Whatever you think of Trump and Sanders you have to believe both of em love this country (unlike Obama). I consider em both patriots for bringing more people out to vote.
“If either one had any honor, they would be running as independents.”
Right now the only way to win the election is to play the two party game. There are too many voters who just look for the person with the R or D at the end of their name. If you seriously want to win that’s the only way to do it. Ron Paul did the same thing.
If Trump ran as an independent he really would be a Ross Perot.
The entire system is designed to assure that only a candidate holding the Republican or Democrat brand can be elected. So if you really want to win Independent or Third party are not an option.
Please do not vote for Hillary. If she wins the nomination go third party. We could use a third party in this country anyways.
Thanks. We appreciate it.
Trump supporters are whiny crybabies as thin-skinned as he is.
We don’t whine, we just act. If you guys want to screw around, then let’s see how you do when 50% of the party walks.
I don’t give a flying fuck about your piece of shit party or its delegates or its brain dead candidates.
Neither does, pogo. He’s a Hillary guy.
Well he’s a Trump guy, which still means he is a Hillary guy, but it’s like saying you want to vote for Hillary without actually saying you want to vote for Hillary.
You are obsessed with that cunt.
Trump may get 1237.He may not however he will be within 100 and ahead by 400 PLUS delegates over Cruz.
IF RNC denies Trump the nomination the Republican Party will get wiped out in the senate,house and state legislatures.
Don’t expect Trump voters to be team players when the ‘team’ has spent hundreds of millions of dollars to destroy Trump.
Cant agree more they’ve rallied against Trump with more enthusiasm than anything else in 20 years, can’t believe they’d rather burn it down than give the voters their choice. Jeb/Hillary 2016 let’s quit pretending their’s a difference.
Time for a third party anyway.
Yes.They have really damaged Trump.Too bad McCain, Romney and the Republican Establishment didn’t campaign as viciously against Obama as they did Trump.
Trump will still be nominee.The math tells us this.
Since I’m REAL no shit independent I don’t give a damn how many walk away from the Republican Party
And as far as that loud-mouthed draft avoiding cowardly self-centered sack of shit Trump is concerned, whatever it takes to keep that lying obnoxious SOB out of the White House works for me
Go light the new grill American hater!
And just how many tours in Saudi Arabia, Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq did you pull????
I love this great country that’s why I don’t want a fucking fascist like Trump as president.
This ain’t the general election dickhead. I can see where some might be pissed but shit’s been done in smoke filled rooms (or the equivalent thereof) since the founding of the USA so you brownshirts need to get over it.
Liberal Fascists hide behind their military service when Trumped on issues and policy.Thank you for your service.
Number 1: That fucking Trump can’t even quote one actual policy or provide a definitive course of action beyond “Making America Great Again” or “I’m looking into it” or “it will have to be decided later”…
Number 2: I’m a lot of things but definitely not a liberal nor fascist. I’ll go to my grave fighting fascism. Obviously you’ve not seen the old newsreels of Mussolini. You need to do that and then watch that puke Trump’s body language in front of his cheering multitudes – all that fucking Trump needs to do is shave that fucking rug off his head, wear a military style tunic with a Sam Brown belt and they’d be twins!!!!!
Number 3: It’s a free country that I served for 25 years to protect and defend anyone’s right to vote even if they do eat the peanuts out of the shit from that loudmouthed draft avoiding cowardly Trump like you and your bunch of brownshirts are doing.
“Bless your heart”
“a Sam Brown belt”
I haven’t heard that term in a good long while. Thanks. I love seeing some flavor and color in the writing around here.
I’d like to think it shows I know my history………….
Unlike these followers of a Mussolini clone who don’t know jack shit about history but appear to have a fondness for ‘jackboots”
Facism is what is coming no matter now hard you fight it. You cucks have no idea and letting the left roll you over for the past 100 years will have a natural reaction back to the right. It’s like gravity. Nothing can stop it, the foundations have already been made by insane liberal policies proven time and time again to destroy nations. You get Trump now, nationalism lite, or you get ultranationalism in 4-8 years.
So, what you are saying is that we are overdue for a dictatorship – right?
That could very well be, Almost every country goes through it at one time or another.
Maybe it’s time for someone like Trump to be Dictator for Life or…he could very well be the Anti-Christ………….
But one thing you can take to the bank: I won’t be a part of getting that lying sack of shit cowardly draft avoider into office – that’s for sure!!!!!
Your range of vocabulary says more about YOU then any of your posts, as an independent your vote has been for sale for a long time. Just filling your lonely hours posting on the internet, does not a maven make. Try adding something interesting, go to the library from time to time, you may learn something, maybe get a dictionary to improve your vocabulary would be a big improvement.
Surely you don’t mean those “socialist” public libraries? LMAO!!!
It’s TW. Tango Wango
See “Sam Brown belt”….above
I can’t help it if that cowardly draft avoider lying sack of shit Trump said “FUCK” in Las Vegas some time back……………
Your what is wrong with Spartanburg, shilling for that faggot we have in office now. Just imagine how much fun you can have waking up every morning having your Trump hate for breakfast? It would finally give you a chance to be critical of someone because you were afraid for 8 years lest you be called, heaven forbid, racist.
Just Trump supporters are whiny crybabies and thin-shinned?
Son of a bitch!
The Democratic Party has laid this election in the republicans lap!
And the STUPID SON OF A BITCHES are gonna’ screw around with the delegates and put ole SLICK WILLIE back up in the BIG HOUSE!
You just can’t make this crap up!
This time Bill’s gonna be the First Man, it’s gonna be party time for him.
Do you think he’ll keep Michelle’s garden?
The ISIS loving,American hating pResident may well instruct the AG to not indict Hillary, et. al., as this is the most lawless president that I can remember ever having. However, I do believe the threat of the FBI to go public with the evidence, especially with Comey at the helm. And I doubt that the statute of limitations will expire by January 20th of 2017. I am confident that at least one presidential candidate will instruct the new AG to prosecute, if he is elected. If you greatly desire justice to be done, I think that you can figure out who that would be. :)
Ah, we’re down to the “conspiracy” theory because if the outcome isn’t what I want, the government is corrupt. Blah, blah, blah…………blah…….Trump 2016!!!! – I like my silly hat.
If we had justice in this nation we would drop Dick Cheney in the middle of the Iraq Desert and tell the population to come and meet their liberator.
Oh that would be good. He’d have a heart attack though.
BASTARD ain’t got one.
Just a little pump, WE PAID FOR!
Of course you,Rocky and Flip hate America. We have been saying, for a very long time, that you, Obama and other leftists are fundamentally unable to express love or admiration for America. You have contempt for the principles that America was founded on and why Trump will win.
I think he likes plowing other things. Oh my!!!
Crooked GOP Convention run by thieves for thieves; chief thief Tricky Nicky Haley.
Democratic “Super Delegates,” make primary win useless. Candidate pre selected by crooks.
Final Vote decided not by the people but by Electoral College. Where they are not bound to the vote of the people.
The USA is an undemocratic Fascist State: pure and simple.
Our Government and our Freedoms have been overthrown by Corporations that are now considered people by the most rotten Supreme Court in US History.
The U.S. Supreme Court has upheld state laws guaranteeing faithful voting by presidential electors (because the states have plenary power over presidential electors).
The FIX is in. The will of the Establishment can not be frustrated.
RNC called truce with Trump while they wait to see if Cruz can make a more legitimate way to kick him out. If that doesn’t work then the cease fire will end I am sure and Trump will be thrown to the dogs at the convention.
The Republicans keep screwing around and I might just show up to pull a straight ticket for the Ds as a form of protest.
I find that hard to believe.
I know, in the past I usually have just stayed home.
You both elected Obama 2x’s.Please stay home.
Could not bring myself to vote Hillary even in protest.
“Let them eat cake” The Republican party message to the So Carolina voters.
Anything can be expected from Haley “the most dishonorable Gov. since the Reconstruction” However there will be repercussions. she will be gone, but those that supported this effort will see consequences for years to come. If they do this I for one will vote a straight democratic ticket for the first time in my life. Actions have consequences and they need to know this. Not that it matters to them the “let them eat cake” crowd.
Important note to the Bitches of Sic Willie’s Blog:
You butt pirates are boring as hell. You sound like 5th graders screaming for an extra cookie.
Get some brains and class and I will come back. Till then you will have to learn to live without me.
See you later, Grumbles.
The Republican Party is a joke. Power hungry, spoiled brats. Haley’s aw shucks “I’m a mom” endorsement of Little Marco was comically. All done because she got her marching orders. Graham is a disgrace. Where was he in the days after the flood. Campaigning. He only came here ONE day. Pathetic. Now he and Haley and the rest of the establishment are trying to retain their power, their status. They’re afraid Trump will somehow diminish their standing in the GOP ranks. And now the main stream media is on board. It’s a near 24 hour all out assault on Trump. Tramp Kelly and the other FOX news bimbos are also flollowing their marching orders. Chris Matthews comes across as an unstable loon who hates Trump. Don Lemon and his boy toy Anderson Cooper somehow think they are relevant too. Jesus God, one candidate has got all of their panties in a wad. And now they want to take his delegates away. I hope he wins. And I hope he crushes all these GOP elites and Media types who tried to crush him.
Sir.You hit a home run.The Republican Party ran harder against Donald Trump than Barrack Obama.
Hey buddy Obama’s not running against Trump at all, he can’t run this year.
Get 1237 and you win. Don’t get 1237 and maybe you do and maybe you don’t. Them the rules – don’t like it, don’t play.
Donald Trump is Obama backlash. Obama didn’t make Donald trump happen, it’s the people that hate him who made Donald Trump.
It’s a decision made of spite. You can’t tell these mouth breathers anything about demagoguery. All they know is “I hate Obama and Mexicans and Muslims and let me think… Obama. Did I say Obama?”… “Damn. I forgot Hillary.”
The new thing I hear from trump supporters… If they don’t like what you say, you’re an Obama lover.
Trump’s supporters can’t claim to be much, but at least they can claim to be better than Mexicans and Mulims. Trump has become the rallying point for bigotry. Trump has replaced the Confederate flag. “May Trump’s hair wave for a thousand years.”
Unfortunately your stance on Trump is by definition, bigotry
I have a lot of conservative friends and I am glad a lot of them see what Trump is doing to their party at least. In a way they are glad he’s giving it to the establishment, but they also wish it wasn’t being done by someone they would never want in office.
Bernie is giving the Democratic establishment a similar scare but Hillary will be able to bury him before it gets out of hand, which means the establishment won’t learn their lesson like the GOP will. I think Bernie is hanging on mostly to see if this email scandal blows up, making him the only choice. I still doubt that it will though.
Anyone who can crawl through the proverbial 500 yards of shit Shawshank style is deserving of the benefit of the doubt. You think the magic mullato had to deal with this? He only exists because of minorities and women have hijacked the democratic process. When you deal with scum, you need someone who isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty.
They can claim to be better than the billionaire donors and multinational corporations who have been running the GOP for almost four decades at the expense of almost everyone in the country. I would rather see a Trump Presidency than another Koch Presidency.
If you’re too stupid to see it has always been about race then you are why we have reached this point.
And the Obama backlash is a product of the RNC, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Breitbart, Drudge, and the list goes on. They brought the crazy wing nuts of their party to the forefront and now the crazies have taken over and started burning it all to the ground.
We were trying to warn you guys about your Obama derangement syndrome but now it is too late.
Regarding immigration, health care, welfare, education, drug policy and more, Obama has suspended, waived and rewritten laws, including the Affordable Care Act. It required the employer mandate to begin this year. But Obama wrote a new law, giving to companies of a certain size a delay until 2016 and stipulating that other employers must certify they will not drop employees to avoid the mandate. Doing so would trigger criminal perjury charges; so he created a new crime, that of adopting a business practice he opposes.
This is why Trump appeared and why he will win.
The ones fiddling hoping Rome burns is the Republicans. Obama did what many presidents before him has done to get things done when a gridlocked Congress could not do its job.
Trump will win this election for Hillary, the only reason you could be supporting Trump is that you are a closet Hillary voter.
Once again the Republican party gets power in the House and Senate and they just can’t help screwing it up. Their obsolete structure of what Americans want is a sham. The majority of Americans (the silent majority) is fed up with the establishment and they are voicing their opinions at the voting booths. Record turnouts show just how upset they are. The democratic party offers the same corrupt goals and candidate or a candidate that wants socialism. The current Adm. has already started its goals toward socialism. Look how that has turned out. Now Republicans have a great chance to regain the Presidency and the slimy Rinos like BT just can not wait to fu-k it up again.
Oh there’s a silent majority – made up of women, moderates under the age of 58, Latinos and African Americas – and you’re going to hear from them in November. Bam!!!! ba, ba, ba, Bam!!!!!!
Just like we did in 2014.Bamm wammmmm.Sanders voters ain’t turning out for Hillary.50% said they won’t.
Or like you did in 2012? Romney in a landslide!!!!!!!!
Sorry, you will lose, big. Yuge. Slapped down harder than Ivana on a good day back in the late 80s.
A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll indicates one third of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ supporters cannot see themselves voting for Hillary Clinton in November. This could spell trouble for Clinton who will likely need Sanders’ backers in order to win the White House.
As far as your hateful comment about Ivana I guess that filthy hispanic culture you defend and raise your family in allows you to project violence against women?Make ya a man?
No!!! I learned it from Tango and some Sandi person.
I’m really bored of this election now. Here, make it easy for you.
In FL – 100 people go into a room. They mirror the state demographics.
First 20 people stand up, and vote. Their Latino. Hillary gets 18, Donald gets 2.
Next 20 people stand up, African American and Asian. Hillary gets 18, Trump gets 2.
Now we’re Hillary 36, Donald 4
60 Angols left. 30 women stand up, Hillary gets 20, Donald gets 10.
The white men stand up – “thank you gentleman for appearing, your votes won’t be needed.”
No win FL, no win period.
And please don’t bore me with your next excuse that Donald brings out the 3 million who didn’t vote. THere are 6 million new Latino voters.
Remember the majority of swing states that Hillary has either decisively lost or tied in? Six of these have voted on the Republican side, and Trump handily won half of them (New Hampshire, Nevada, Florida). Trump also carried all of the swing states that Clinton won in except Ohio–and in that case, he nearly defeated a sitting governor with an active campaign infrastructure still intact from his recent re-election. Kasich only managed to pull off a victory at the 11th hour, after Rubio instructed his voters to vote for the governor instead. In Florida Trump managed a landslide victory over Rubio on his own turf in the process and secured an endorsement from current Florida Governor Rick Scott. As for the solidly-red southern states that comprise most of Clinton’s pledged delegate lead–guess who carried all of these rather decisively on the Republican side, and often with record turnout? That’s right, Donald Trump.
Sorry – was distracted by actual work.
Whatever. He’s trailing by near or over double digits in swing states, and MI, WI, NY – make me laugh. Later.
Actually that is a lie. There is no such statistic. But ask how many Republicans will not support Trump, and ask how many Sanders voters will support Trump.
I love the admission that white men don’t matter. We are supposed to sit back and take it like good goys, while you get maximum lulz watching what they built get stolen and given to children of degenerates and third world shit who would soon as they could put every white man on a train, gas him, turn him into soap, and rape his women.
Forgot the stress meds today?
“His women.” My you are a Republican aren’t you. Did you pick yours out of one of Mitt’s binders or did you order her from some foreign country?
Gogrrl! You obviously don’t like the idea of men offering you protection. You probably would’ve enjoyed yourself in Cologne on New Year’s Eve.
You are the real RINO, you and the rest of you closet Hillary supporters backing Trump. : )
Rome is already burning you faggot. Get your messiahs dick out of your mouth long enough and you might could see the smoke.
I will pray for your hateful heart. God loves you.
Pray for yourself. God hates cucks and faggots. Still time to repent and do the right thing!
Flip has a new Tango account. Yippie!!!
Damn it. You forgot my tartar sauce.
Trump appeared because a huge segment of the GOP are bat shit crazy. They are aging Reagainites (like you) who never were really Republicans in the sense of a Reagan or Ford or Bush 1. They cling to old, outdated ideas, and an outdated vision of what “Merika” should be. They are being left behind, as the moderate younger “would be GOP voters” switch to Independent status. And Trump timed it perfectly. He announced right after the SCOTUS validated Obamacare again, the Senate passed fast track authority for TPP, the Iran Deal was cut and them HOMOS gots to get married. The base is consumed by hate for everyone, not just Obama.
They hate in the following order: Blacks, Hispanics, Gays, Women, Asians, College Educated People, college students, lawyers, doctors, Muslims, Hindus, Catholics, Banks, Insurance Companies, Wall Street, Target, Fresh Market, Tapas, Sushi and Belgium Wheat Beer.
Want proof. That scrum with the chick in Janesville this week – what did the Trump supporters call her? Nigger Lover!!!!
Hurry up Flip.
Democrats are an anti-American, subversive, and seriously deranged political party.(like you). The Democrat Party is more like a computer virus than a serious political party with real solutions to the problems we face. Instead, the Democrat Party offers nothing but crumbs to help out the losers in life while secretly stealing trillions of dollars from hard working Americans and shuffling it through the bureaucracy. The Democrat Party is nothing more than a criminal enterprise(how non citizen mother in laws get Obamacare subsidy) that masquerades as a serious political party, which it isn’t.
Why Trump will win.
So are you Zika or the Clap?
Ted Cruz leads his Republican presidential rival Donald Trump by 10 points in a second poll ahead of Tuesday’s primary in Wisconsin.
Cruz is supported by 42 percent of likely GOP primary voters in the Fox Business poll released Thursday night, followed by Trump at 32 percent and John Kasich at 19 percent.
Who cares? PPP has it 1 point but none of it matters.Trump picked up 12 in Missouri and will win 12-15 in WI. WI is a wash.He picks up 90 in New York on 19th and 150-200 on 26th in NE.
Trump is nominee.Hillary will be indicted.
Trump is the nominee, Hillary wins a landslide – there fixed it for you.
Yeah, if you want to stay consistent – you claim Larry Sabato is a great man, and super smart and stuff – go read his predictions. He’s got the Hill-meister in a Land Slide She Long. Later dude, prepping for one of them Left Coast busines trips.
I saw em.When I saw he had Hillary winning Florida I new it was a joke.Reagan was down 25 points to Carter in 1980.Trump will take Cruz or Kasich as vp and Dems lose in a landslide.
1. Trump ain’t Reagan.
2. Election analysts prefer close elections, but there was nothing we could do to make this one close. Clinton’s total is 347 electoral votes, which includes 190 safe, 57 likely, and 100 that lean in her direction. Trump has a total of 191 (142 safe, 48 likely, and 1 leans).
Over the years we’ve put much emphasis on the seven super-swing states: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio, and Virginia. While some will fall to the Democrats less readily than others, it is difficult to see any that Trump is likely to grab. In fact, four normally Republican states (Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, and Missouri) would be somewhat less secure for the GOP than usual. North Carolina, which normally leans slightly to the GOP, would also be well within Clinton’s grasp in this election after being Mitt Romney’s closest win in 2012.
Just thought you might enjoy Larry’s latest.
Actually Trump starts with Romney’s 206 and wins easily the swing states including Florida.
Try and keep up.
You been in Will’s weed stash again – eh?
Romney lost the white vote. Or nearly lost the white vote in ten major purple states.
Michigan, Ohio, Minnesota, Iowa, N.H., Maine, Illinois, Colorado, have I named ten yet?
[Editor’s note: Pennsylvania and Wisconsin?]
If Trump can slightly increase the white vote in these big industrial states in the midwest.
And by the way, Maine went for Ross Perot, I think Trump will be popular there.
All he needs is a handful of states.
Oh! And Florida! Not only did Trump win Florida, which I haven’t even considered, I’m just looking at how Trump could possibly crush the electoral college by slightly increasing the white vote in certain states.
Left Coast business trip! hahahahahahahahahahahhaohmyohmyohmylmaolmaolmaololololololo!!!!!!
Are ya going to Long John Silvers for lunch?
Today? No eat at home. But probably some nice places in La Jolla. I’ll tell Mitt hello if I see him.
Wisconsin? Who the fuck cares. If they want to waste their delegates on another loser let them join the likes of their neighboring states.
Yes because wanting a country for yourself and future generations makes you bat shit crazy these days. Old, out dated ideas make you a racist even if they have proven throughout history to work.
My horse works just fine!!!!!
I thought they fuck goats and camels where your ancestors are from?
Obama derangement syndrome? If he got the Trump treatment he would have been a never was. Only difference is that BHO was the libtards, effete white male, women, minority’s guy. It was historical, and so much fun to light the fuse that burned their country to the ground and sold normal God fearing citizens progenys future to 3rd world hoards. Trump is white and therefore Hitler because big meanie! He must be stopped! I can’t even it’s the current year!
You seem like a very angry person. We Americans are all in this together, we should not be dividing ourselves into groups we like and groups we hate, but that is exactly what you are doing with comments like that. Please repent.
It’s Tango. Slow news day.
The Trump Establishment (Machine) is working overtime in South Carolina, The only named target in the Pascoe investigation is Jim Merrill, Trump’s State campaign director. He was hired by none other than Corey Lewandowski.
Corey Lewandowski is charged with assaulting a female reporter, which I agree is minor. It wasn’t minor, however, that Corey Lewandowski and Trump lied repeatedly and tried to smear an bully her. They lied until presented with the facts and then changed lies until presented with more facts. Forced to face all the facts they smeared her. Any mentally healthy person would’ve just apologized at the very beginning.
Lt.Gov. Henry McMaster was the most prominent supporter standing behind Attorney General Alan Wilson during his bizarre explaination for firing Pascoe. McMaster was there supporting a brazen effort to block the investigation of corrupt legislators. Henry is Trump’s most prominent South Carolina supporter.
The most prominent SC supporters of Trump are as Establishment as you could possibly get, if by Establishment you mean neck deep in political corruption.
S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley is one of eighteen governors to make a new national list … and like most of the lists South Carolina winds up on, it’s not a good one.
Haley ranked tenth on the list of corrupt governors compiled by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW).
“Some governors on the list essentially turned their authority and regulatory agendas over to special interests,” the group wrote in releasing its report. “Others abused their office in return for gifts and campaign contributions. Many appointed donors to key positions and gutted transparency measures. All failed to live up to the public trust.”
CREW blasts Haley in several categories – including her scandal-scarred tenure as a member of the S.C. General Assembly, her “pay-to-play appointments,” her acceptance of “free trips on the private planes of donors, appointees and people with business before the state,” her flouting of transparency standards and her “misuse of federal funds.”
Sixteen of the eighteen governors cited are Republican. CREW had been a member of the Democratic Alliance which coordinated with the Democratic party.
Since its founding in 2003, it [helped] investigate 21 lawmakers, only one of them a Democrat” (Sen. Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas, in a complaint that also targeted Sen. Bill Frist (R-TN), then Senate Majority Leader). A report by McClatchy News Service referred to CREW as “a Democratic-leaning watchdog group”. In 2007, Ms. Magazine quoted longtime Democratic pollster Celinda Lake as saying, “Corruption was a top issue in the  midterm elections, and CREW was critical to the Democrats’ success.
The chairman of the organization, David Brock, has, to say the least, an interesting but partisan past

Trump and ethics, oil and water…
Folks is right. He knows a Trump candidacy or successfully blocking Trump could destroy the Republican party. I’m to the point where I say block Trump by any LEGAL means necessary. I would rather see the Republican party destroyed than have Trump get even close to the presidency.
I have said before that I would vote for Hillary against Trump, but now I will make the same statement regarding a Trump / Bernie Sanders race. I would rather have a Socialist as President than a Sociopath.
“As I’ve said before, I believe Gov. Haley is the most corrupt person to occupy the Governor’s Mansion since Reconstruction,” he says. “Put it another way: I think she is corrupt to the core of her being.”
Rainey’s words have weight. He is not some yahoo. Indeed, right now he is on the finance team of ex-ambassador to China and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, who is running for the Republican nomination for president. For eight years, Rainey chaired the state’s Board of Economic Advisors under Sanford. Before that, in the ’90s, he helmed the South Carolina’s public utility, Santee Cooper, and navigated it out of one of the largest corporate scandals in the state. He and Sanford still keep in touch.
Rainey’s private investigations have culminated in a high-profile lawsuit against Haley that he filed last month. The lawsuit asks the Richland County Court of Common Pleas to decide whether Haley broke any laws either by soliciting funds from lobbyists as a fundraiser for Lexington Medical Center or by doing secret consulting work for engineering firm Wilbur Smith Associates. Both occurred during the time she represented Lexington County in the S.C. House prior to becoming governor, and both entities had business before the legislature at the time. He also believes Haley’s election points to a fault line in American politics where candidates aren’t seriously vetted and nominees aren’t challenged by their own party.

O.J.Simpson was cleared.
Pogo has a point, they haven’t even caught his hacker buddy yet either.
Posting at 1:30 A.M.? Not good to be drunk and posting.You just might tell the world (like you just did) that you support Hitler,Stalin,Chavez and Castro.
It was from Benjamin Franklin that the phrase “Burning the midnight oil” originated. And I’m up early.
Pogo wouldn’t know anything about that. He has no experience to go by since he appears to be jobless himself.
10 posts in 13 minutes.Fits must have told ya at staff meeting that you and Boz need to stop stalking Grand Tango’s FB posts on the Sun News and to meet your quota on FitsNews. :)
Sorry the hours I put in at my actual job (not that you would know what that is) was last night, getting some leisure time this morning and enjoying the good political discourse that BT and others provide and laughing at Pogo the clown.
Did you pick up my dry cleaning?

“I would rather see the Republican party destroyed than have Trump get even close to the presidency.”
Yes! I agree. If the Republican party is destroyed a new party can rise from its ashes. Nothing wrong with some healthy conservative politics but for that to come back we need a party not ruled by the crazies.
The Republican party is not ruled by crazies. The Republican party is ruled by billionaire donors and multinational corporations, who have been using the crazies to obtain power and maintain power so they could line their pockets at the expense of the average American. Now their Frankenstein monster has broken free and is turning on them.
Everything Haley touches turns to shiite.
I’m gonna pop some tags – got $20 in my pocket –
That’s $50 for a tee shirt yo – sheeeiiiiittte.
Ok Tyrone. Be careful in the jungle.
You can look at all my post and see I have supported Republicans 3 to 1 over the years but I say this does not make me a Republican I just had to choose the lesser of two evils and believe you me I have no doubt personally that the Democrat Party is as pure an evil as I have known in my life, But now the Republicans have gone over to the dark side we need a new party. As has been said their is no honor among thieves!
” when they first came after……..I did not speak out, when they came after……I did not speak out, ……. now there is no one to speak for me” I have asked Fits to publish the list of the Republican delegation members, preferably with phone number, whatever they do they shall do it in the sunshine. ONE PERSON ONE VOTE!!
