  1. Trump gave Fox News the finger and said he is not going to participate in their next debate. Why should we let Fox or the National Review tell us who to vote for or to torpedo the frontrunner?

    I said months ago that Trump would run the table of primary elections. Trump knows the public hates the establishment media and political correctness.

    1. Andrés: I have not seen that he would not participate in a Fox-sponsored debate. I do know he’s irked at Megyn Kelly. Dodging Fox wouldn’t be in his best interests, I think. It’s America’s most-watched cable news channel for a reason. National Review, more hoity-toity, is far less important.

      The Trump phenomenon is interesting. It’s the flip side, eight years later, of the Weepy Barry phenom on the left.

      Give me Ted Cruz any day.

      1. Yes, the Donald wanted Fox to remove Ms. Kelly as a moderator. They said no. Who cares if he’s not on. It is not like he isn’t in the news every day for something or other. This will give us more time to actually hear the others.

        1. Scott: Just after replying to Andrés, I looked at Breitbart News, and it was at the top. All of these shenanigans would be awfully amusing and fun were it not so important and potentially perilous. Gonna be an interesting year for sure.

      2. Trump is not the first Republican candidate to skip a debate. Ronald Reagan skipped the Republican debate ahead of the 1980 Iowa caucus.

        Bloomberg reported:

        Trump isn’t the first top-tier presidential candidate to skip a debate. Ronald Reagan did not attend a Republican debate ahead of the 1980 Iowa caucuses, which he lost to George H.W. Bush. Reagan went on to win the nomination and the presidency.

        Reagan went on to win in a landslide.

  2. Trump is a good show, but the votes will go to Cruz. Time will tell.

    The question of the moment is “Will Hillary be indicted.” Obstruction of justice is an impeachable offence. Will the current Imperial President risk it, or will he throw her to the wolves?

    1. Señor Gill: I pray that you are correct that the votes will go to Cruz, but I’m afraid you overestimate the intelligence of “the people” who did elect Weepy Barry not just once but twice. Dimwits abound on both the left and the right.

      I wish Hillary would be indicted, prosecuted and jailed. Now that would be sweet.

  3. Hillary will be “American Nightmare, Part Five.” Her husband and Barack Hussein Obama were parts one through four. She still does not admit she made an error with her emails. She says it was wrong, but still not her fault. She doesn’t type. Maybe that is her excuse.

    They will give us “free” college tuition that no one will have to pay for, just like they gave us “free” healthcare that no one will have to pay for.

    Between the high deductibles and high premiums, I get a feeling that we are really paying for something that was supposed to be free.

    1. Señor Gill: I have serious doubts that Hillary will be elected president, but a voting population that fell for Weepy Barry not once but twice clearly cannot be trusted. History bolsters me too in that there has been just once — maybe it was twice — in U.S. history when a president who served two terms was followed by another president of the same party. It almost always goes to the opposition.

      So you’re doubtful that free everything from the left is really free? Hmmm.

  4. That FB page is quite a piece of work. Completely fabricated conspiracy theories to misogynistic claptrap. When younger I had no idea how many complete morons inhabit the USA. But now with the advances in IT they now have an instant vehicle to prove to the world how incredibly stupid they truly are.

      1. You assume too much. Because I criticize some infantile garbage you concluded I favor Hillary when the only thing I am guilty of is calling a spade a spade. Isn’t that something you take pride in doing?

              1. You overestimate the power of the GOP voters. The hierarchy will move mountains in order to get their guy the nomination. Not that it matters. Whoever it winds up being will get trounced in November.

                1. I suspect what we are seeing is a move of political power in the Republican party from the Chamber of Commerce types to the blue collar working class. The suits have the cash, but the workers have the votes.

  5. Why don’t you guys move to Canada, then you can sit and laugh at yourselves. You spin the facts so much you must be dizzy. I’m glad I have you for entertainment, it takes my mind off the fact that I’m going on my annual pilgrimage to USofA where a Canadian dollar is only worth 9 cents.

    1. Kris: No facts spun hereabouts. Just the facts, as Jack Webb used to say. As for entertainment, I’m all about entertainment. That and political consciousness-raising.

      As for the Canadian dollar being worth 4 U.S. cents, my investigation just now says it’s actually 71 cents.

      1. A bit of exaggeration on my part, similar to the facts (in their opinion) presented by politicians about their opponents, which are then spun and distorted by the media and sworn to as the gospel truth by those who want to believe it. Zealots of whatever following seek out reporters and publications to bolster their point of view, and swear it to be truth, when it is actually someone else’s opinion, with which they agree.

        Believe half of what you see, 10% of what you read, and 1% of what’s on the internet.

  6. As you undoubtedly know, National Review regularly touts your guy. As for Trump he deserves to be shellacked by conservatives. There is nothing conservative in his not-too-specifc agenda. I fear that Cruz will eventually face the problem that Obama has poisoned the well for crafty young men with limited years in the Senate. (Of course, the same can be said of my boy.) It strikes me as the same problem in 2012 when the Republicans nominated the stepfather of Obamacare, thus taking off of the table one of the issues that could have determined the race. It is going to be a long year before everything shakes out.

    1. Señor Cotton: It is going to be a long and interesting year for those of us interested in these things. Too many are not interested. Yet they vote, which is why I do not believe in universal voting rights. And I do embrace poll taxes and whatever else keeps the ignorant out of voting booths.

      Actually, I yearn for an enlightened monarchy, but that ain’t gonna happen.

      Trump is a demagogue, pure and simple, the blowback from eight years of Weepy Barry. A freaking mess, all of it.
