Donald Trump has upended the Republican party — some say destroyed it, though that’s over-stating the case — by running an anti-establishment campaign in the primaries. By winning so many primary contests (in so many states), he has proven that his messages resonate with a large population of the American people.

Many fail to notice how many primaries allow open voting (i.e., Democrats and vote in the Republican primary, and vice versa), and also fail to notice how many Democrats support Trump.

This is why Trump can win it all (whether you like him or hate him): he transcends both parties.

Here is a comment from last night’s West Virginia voting in the Democrat primary, which Bernie Sanders won big (emphasis added):

Given a choice between Trump and Clinton, one third of West Virginia Democrats said they would vote Trump, and another 20 percent said they wouldn’t vote at all. <ABC News, link>

One third of Democrats would vote for Trump over Hillary Clinton…

On top of this, Trump is no Mitt Romney. As we recall, painfully, Mitt Romney was afraid to sling the political mud against Barack Obama, even as Obama was ripping him to pieces in every way possible.

As for Trump, we already have been shown a taste of what Hillary is going to face:

Hillary has bad judgment!

Well now, if there was any doubt about Liberal disenchantment with Hillary Clinton, the following Susan Sarandon quotes will end it.

From an interview on MSNBC as quoted today by Yahoo News (link):

Sarandon, one of Sanders’ most visible surrogates, told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes that she’s concerned that Clinton doesn’t represent the progressive values that the Vermont senator and self-described democratic socialist preaches on the campaign trail.

She doesn’t. She’s accepted money from all those [Wall Street] people. She doesn’t even want to fight for a $15 minimum wage.

The 69-year-old Academy Award winner said her fellow Sanders supporters — many of them first-time voters — won’t turn out for Clinton in a general election.

They feel like she’s not authentic, that she’s a liar, that they don’t trust her, so what difference does it make?

Wow, thanks Susan for speaking the truth about Hillary. And I notice that your are quoting how others feel…perhaps you feel the same way too? I think so.

Sarandon

That Hillary Clinton scared off Joe Biden and other challengers is a disgrace for Democrats, but let’s all tip our caps to the indomitable Bernie Sanders!

Are you ready to laugh?

Nelson Shanks, the artist who painted the official portrait of President William Jefferson Clinton, just revealed that he intentionally included a “shadow” in the painting to represent the Monica Lewinsky scandal and the shadow it cast over the Clinton presidency. <Yahoo News, link, via Philadelphia Daily News>

If you look at the left-hand side of it, there’s a mantel in the Oval Office, I put a shadow coming into the painting, and it does two things. It actually literally represents a shadow from a blue dress I had on a mannequin, that I had there while I was painting it, but not when he was there. It is also a bit of a metaphor in that it represents a shadow on the office he held, or on him.

A shadow looms...

A shadow looms…

Not only did the artist sneak a shadow in, he also apparently left off Mr. Clinton’s wedding ring…

And there is one more thing about this painting that I find amusing, and that is the way Slick Willie is standing, hand on hip, turned towards the shadow: to me it looks as though he is standing at a urinal, about to take a piss.

Clinton at urinalDid the artist intend this as well? He has not said so, but I find this possibility compelling given that Bill Clinton metaphorically pissed all over the White House during his time there, and all over the Rule of Law and national security.

Shanks had another unkind thing to say about Clinton:

The reality is he’s probably the most famous liar of all time.

Uh, no, Mr. Shanks, Bill Clinton, although a legendary liar of the highest order, has been replaced by Barack Hussein Obama, the most dangerous and destructive liar ever to inhabit the United States, let alone the White House.

Our government is truly sick, and not just in the Democrat party. Long-time Senator Orrin Hatch, a Republican, seems to have been John Roberts-ed in regard to his vote in favor of mr. Obama’s nominee for Attorney General — the top law enforcement official in the country — despite her testimony in support of the president’s illegal and unconstitutional Executive-branch amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants inside the United States, an act so unlawful that even he said he did not have the power to do it several years ago (he still doesn’t).

First, let’s review Ms. Lynch’s answers to direct questions about whether she respects our nation’s laws <WND, link:

The first contentious exchange occurred when Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., asked whether Lynch thought immigrants entering the U.S. illegally had a right to claim U.S. citizenship under equal protection laws, claiming citizenship was their “civil right.”

I believe the right and obligation to work is a right of everyone who comes here regardless of status, and I would prefer people to be in the workforce than not.

Sessions pressed: “Does an illegal immigrant have a right to demand a job? Do you think a person here illegally has a right to work in the United States when the law says it’s illegal to hire someone who is here illegally?”

We want everyone in the United States to be able to seek employment.

Sessions asked further: “If a person comes here illegally and has a right to get a Social Security card and a work authorization, is an employer still free to give preference to hiring someone who is here legally? Would you take action against an employer who did not hire someone given a work permit under the president’s executive actions?”

I would look forward to speaking with you and working with you as we try to address this point in the future.

These answers are worse than inadequate.

They are the equivalent of saying that our nation’s laws do not matter, that the Rule of Law does not matter.

And a person who has is interviewing for the job of United States Attorney General who makes such a statement absolutely cannot and should not be confirmed as Attorney General.

“HI, MY NAME IS _______ AND I WANT TO BE THE NATION’S ATTORNEY GENERAL, BUT DON’T BELIEVE IN THE RULE OF LAW. PLEASE CONFIRM ME FOR THE POSITION, THANK YOU.”

And yet:

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted Thursday to confirm U.S. Attorney Loretta E. Lynch as the next attorney general, paving the way for her likely confirmation by the full Senate, which is expected to vote on her nomination in the next week or two.

Sens. Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah), Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) and Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) voted with the committee’s nine Democrats to approve Lynch’s nomination. <Washington Post, link>

What world are we living in, where Republican Senators could actually vote in favor of a candidate who is against the Rule of Law.

Orrin Hatch looks scared -- is he hearing footsteps?

Orrin Hatch looks scared — is he hearing footsteps?

Orrin Hatch, alleged Republican, had this to say in support of her nomination:

The case against her nomination, as far as I can tell, essentially ignores her professional career and focuses solely on about six hours that she spent before this committee on Jan. 28.

Uh, no, Orrin, no one is ignoring her professional career, and you know it. The simple fact is that she supports an executive branch that is behaving in direct violation of the Constitution, and you know this too.

Why are you doing this?

Do you hear Obama’s footsteps, as John Roberts likely did when he affirmed the disaster known as Obamacare?

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) gives us all a very clear message on why the Lynch nomination must be opposed, and you need to listen, Mr. Orrin Hatch:

The Senate cannot confirm someone to this post who is going to support and advance a scheme that violates our Constitution and eviscerates congressional authority.  Congress makes the laws, not the president—as every schoolchild knows.

What a study in contrasts, George W. Bush, and Barack Hussein Obama, particularly when it comes to the issue of leadership.

In simple terms, if you work for Obama, you can be sure that at some point he will sell you down the river and disown you when the going gets tough, whereas if you work for Bush, he will stand by you (and his own decisions) in tough circumstances.

This came to mind with the news this week of the Senate’s intended expose on CIA interrogation methods in the years after 9/11 (emphasis added).

The report is said to assert that the C.I.A. misled Mr. Bush and his White House about the nature, extent and results of brutal techniques like waterboarding, and some of his former administration officials privately suggested seizing on that to distance themselves from the controversial program, according to people involved in the discussion. But Mr. Bush and his closest advisers decided that “we’re going to want to stand behind these guys,” as one former official put it. <New York Times, link>

Wow, what a difference: instead of being a thin-skinned worm and ducking responsibility by saying “Boo hoo, the CIA misled me..”, President Bush is going full-tilt the other way and standing together with the people who served him and their country in a time of war.

Said Mr. Bush:

We’re fortunate to have men and women who work hard at the C.I.A. serving on our behalf. These are patriots and whatever the report says, if it diminishes their contributions to our country, it is way off base.

Now that is what leadership sounds like.

Let’s take a tour of how Barack Obama handles things when his policies come under fire.

Obamacare rollout

On the now-legendary Hinderberg-like rollout of healthcare.gov, the Obamacare website that cost nearly $1 billion and yet crashed and burned (and, by the way, it is STILL NOT FIXED):

Kathleen Sebelius said President Barack Obama didn’t hear that there may be problems with the sign-up portal for his signature health care law until it went live on October 1. That’s when the site nosedived into a technical abyss. <CNN, link>

Way to go, Kathleen — you carried out that lie beautifully, at your own terrible expense. Nice boss you had there!

IRS Targeting of Republican Groups

President Obama insisted Thursday that he knew nothing about the internal investigation into the IRS’ practice of singling out conservative groups for special scrutiny before it was made public, as he moved to name a new director for the embattled agency. <Fox News, link>

I can assure you that I certainly did not know anything about the (inspector general) report..

Hey, mr. Obama, we believe you, yes we do.

NSA Spying

President Barack Obama was unaware of the National Security Agency’s spying on German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other world leaders until the operation was discovered through an internal administration review, The Wall Street Journal reported. <The Blaze, link>

Isn’t it amazing how little mr. Obama knows about what his staff is up to? But of course he does know, and by pretending not to, he shows no connection to his team in any way, shape, or form, and stands as a man apart from not just his loyal lieutenants but from this entire nation.

I saw this headline in the LA Times today and cringed (link):

With executive action, Obama risks losing Chief Justice John Roberts

As the sentence makes plain, Justice Roberts has been “with” Obama ever since he shocked the world and voted to affirm the so-called individual mandate in the ACA by retroactively labeling the law’s penalty a “tax”.

That Roberts did so makes me sick to this day, and to this day I wonder what was done to him in order for him to cast that deciding vote in favor of the most damaging law to come along in a generation.

And so now, with Obama’s attempt at bypassing the entire legislative branch and giving amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, newspaper headlines fret over whether Obama will “lose” Roberts.

To which I say, Roberts should never have sold out his duty and honor by siding with Obama in the first place.
