The Elite Get A Well Deserved Bullying From Donald Trump

Country class voters know a bully when they see one, and they believe they are being bullied daily by an out-of-touch and insulated elite that holds them in contempt, they understand that the guy who punches your oppressor in the mouth isn’t a bully, he’s your champion. If Donald Trump is a bully, then he’s the much needed counter-bully the country class has been waiting for.

Conservative opposition forces Corker out of Trump Veepstakes

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

If there’s one thing worse than ignoring the conservative agenda, it is claiming to support it and then betraying it, and in that regard Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee stands alone in infamy among those suggested as a potential running mate for Donald Trump. I urge all of my conservative friends to let Donald Trump know that we conservatives believe choosing Bob Corker as his running mate would crash Trump’s campaign and that it is time to just say NO to Bob Corker for Vice President.

Dear GOP, you still haven’t learned. Follow Herb Brooks’ advice

"Felix Veritas", QuinHillyer.com

Follow Herb Brooks’ advice, GOP leaders. Attack. America needs it now. Desperately. Throw the Democrats’ game right back in their face, and start exposing them for what they really are. Poor Americans who continue voting Democrats into office need to know the truth about who they are electing, at least at the national level.

Louie Gohmert: America’s Last Hope To Preserve Constitutional Liberty

Rep. Louie Gohmert, one man with principles – and a gut level love for his country and constitutional liberty – can do what a gallery full of House Republican mice would never dare – get mad, get emotional, get angry and confront the Democrats about what really got 50 people killed in Orlando.

GOP Establishment Running Their 1964 Stop Goldwater Plan Against Trump

There are a lot of parallels between 1964 and 2016, but the most important one is this: By defeating Goldwater, establishment Republicans created the opportunity for Democrats and their progressive Republican allies to bankrupt the country in a war that lacked a strategy for victory and to enact the regulatory and welfare regime that continues to plague our economy and limit our liberty fifty years on.

Trump’s win and his new challenge

Editors, Washington Examiner

At the very least, Trump owes it to the country he boasts he will "make great again" to try to demonstrate some seriousness about the office he seeks. He owes this even to those who will never consider voting for him. He can start by swearing off grand displays of aggressive and apparently deliberate ignorance.

Ted Cruz Is Right – America Is At A Point Of Choosing

What’s at stake in this election is not just who will occupy the Oval Office, but what governing principles will be operative in America for the next generation. Cruz’s succinct formulation is that our goals as a government and as a conservative movement should be jobs, freedom, and security. This is about as tight a statement of the goals and credo of the winning 21st century conservative coalition that the English language will allow.
