FLASH: At Least 28 Dead in Brussels Muslim Terror Attack

The usual suspects, such as Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, President Obama, Hillary Clinton and Governor John Kasich will say this isn’t about the Muslim religion – like Hell it isn’t. In the face of this latest Muslim terror attack it is past time to ask why does America need over 2.3 million Muslim immigrants? Why would our government willingly import this kind of violence to America?

Arizona and Utah Primaries: Cruz is the Best Candidate to Beat Hillary

In Ted Cruz conservatives don’t have to wonder where he stands on the conservative cultural agenda or on battling the Washington Cartel. We contrast that with his chief opponent, Donald Trump, who has not only flip-flopped on many issues of concern to conservatives, but in many respects is the poster boy for the kind of crony government that spawned the Tea Party rebellion.

We Urge Cruz and Trump Delegates to Build an Outsider Alliance for the GOP Convention

We urge the Cruz and Trump delegates in other states to follow the lead of Tennessee's Joe Carr, state Senator Mae Beavers and Steve Gill and work together to make sure that, while they follow their principles and work to nominate their candidate, the Republican political class does not steal the nomination and succeed in forcing another content-free candidate and campaign down the throats of rebellious grassroots conservatives.

Trump's logic: Romney isn't Mormon because he isn't 'smart'

Daniel Chaitin, Washington Examiner

In an interview Sunday on ABC News' "This Week," Trump defended his recent statement questioning whether Romney is a really a Mormon, saying the failed 2012 Republican nominee is not smart enough to be a Mormon.

Trump: I’ve picked my SCOTUS nominees

Mark Hensch, The Hill

GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump late Sunday said he has generated a list of candidates he would nominate to the Supreme Court if elected president. “I’m going to get a list of anywhere from five to ten judges, and those are going to be the judges that I’m going to put in,” he said during a speech at his Mar-a-Largo club in Palm Beach, Fla.

Republicans Must Demand Law and Order or the Left Will Steal the Election

As our friend (and Trump supporter) Diana West has pointed out, “Nothing, but nothing, Donald Trump has said from his podium about protestors disrupting his rallies drives the anti-USA agendas of these Leftist groups." Nor did it inspire them to organize the mobs that interrupted the democratic process in Chicago, blocked traffic in Phoenix and rioted in Salt Lake City. This is a well-thought-out attempt by a well-organized and well-funded revolutionary group to use violence to influence the political process in our country – and that’s the textbook definition of a revolution.

Suicide of GOP – or its rebirth?

Patrick J. Buchanan,

Whatever one may think of the Donald, he has exposed not only how far out of touch our political elites are, but how insular is the audience that listens to our media elite. As the Wizard of Oz was exposed as a little man behind a curtain with a big megaphone, our media establishment is unlikely ever again to be seen as formidable as it once was.

Trump Voters Begin Arguing Against Their Data

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

Trump voters, to make a plausible case for him in November, have to now discard all the data they have used thus far to declare him a credible candidate. They have to ignore all the polling that Trump himself for so long championed. A Trump nomination will bring about a Hillary Clinton presidency.

CNN a heavy contributor to Trump's earned media

T. Becket Adams, Washington Examiner

Though all of media is obsessed with Trump, few newsrooms have ignored the other 2016 candidates in favor of Trump as much as CNN has, according to Internet Archive data rounded up by the GDELT Project.

Kevin D. Williamson and National Review Are Elitist Scum

While movement conservatives would like to blame the Republican establishment for the rise of Donald Trump and the attendant political problems he has created for the national Republican Party, as our friend Rick Manning, President of Americans for Limited Government, pointed out in a recent article for Breitbart, those out-of-touch Ivory Tower “establishment conservatives,” such as the writers and editors at National Review, bear just as much responsibility for Trump’s rise.

Only Ted Cruz can stop Donald Trump

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

"If the anti-Trump voters can find a better way to coordinate behind one candidate," writes Harry Enten in, "they can probably beat Trump in a lot of upcoming contests." The obvious candidate for whom Republican voters can vote to stop Trump from getting to 1,237 is Ted Cruz.

Cruz slams Trump for skipping GOP debate

Rebecca Savransky, The Hill

"His excuse is silliness and it reflects his assumption that he thinks the voters can't figure out that he's not telling them the truth," Cruz said on "The Kelly File" on Fox Wednesday night. Cruz said AIPAC would have allowed Trump to speak at anytime, noting it's a multi-day conference. "He chose to speak right in the middle of the debate because he's scared to debate and he looks down on the voters. He thinks their gullible and will believe whatever he's saying," he said.

Trumpism: ‘It’s the Culture, Stupid’

Scott Winship, National Review

Trumpism is best viewed as a hostile takeover of the Republican party by a non-conservative authoritarian who is stoking and leveraging the cultural resentment and authoritarianism of the GOP’s traditionalist base. And that base is primarily opposed to the cultural liberalism that is ascendant in the Democratic party.

Trump Steals his Populist strategy from Richard Viguerie

Matt Waters, Christian News Wire

Pundits from across the political spectrum are up in arms over the rise of populism in this election cycle--but what none has pointed out is the fact that Donald Trump is merely echoing conservative godfather Richard A. Viguerie.

Ted Cruz must now be the Uniter

Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

People have been so committed to their candidate that there are wounds that must heal for there to be movement to Cruz. It is Ted Cruz’s time to unite the party and heal those wounds. Ted Cruz must be a bridge builder and show the GOP that he can be the outsider who can stop Trump and stop Hillary Clinton.

Explaining Marco Rubio’s defeat

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Marco Rubio was quick to blame the “angry” voters for his failure to gain any detraction in the Republican presidential race, but it was his leadership and advocacy for amnesty in the Gang of Eight that ultimately doomed his campaign.
