Speaker Ryan is completely tone deaf to what is driving the outsider candidacies of Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. They are not winning the Republican Primaries by campaigning against Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders – they are winning by campaigning against Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Reince Priebus and the rest of the feckless, principle-free Capitol Hill Republican leaders. Ryan’s plan for this year’s budget will only fuel their candidacies.

Two more establishment candidates exit the race on Wednesday. Plus, Jeb Bush is under some delusion that he still has a shot in the 2016 race; Ted Cruz finished third. Where’s the media adoration?, and, Marco Rubio’s campaign is done for this year, but he could redeem himself by going after Trump.

If Obama has his way our American form of representative government will be replaced by non-elected regional councils and dictated to by a central government. That Free Enterprise will be replaced with fascist-style public private partnerships as international corporations will use their influence with government to stomp out mom and pop stores; government agents will join in group hugs with Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and corporate presidents as they carve up the goods of our once free society.

Congratulations to the fathers of Trump’s victory – Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner and Reince Priebus. New Hampshire's voters sent a message to America’s Power Establishment (including the media) Ask Not For Whom The Election Bells Toll; For They Toll for America’s Corrupt Establishment.

With the Republican nominating process moving on from two small states where a presidential candidate can conduct a retail campaign like he is running for county sheriff to a national multi-state stage, the perverse result of the New Hampshire Primary is that it likely spells the end of the line for the two candidates who worked the state the hardest – John Kasich and Chris Christie.

Donald Trump takes New Hampshire convincingly, but the real story involves who lost on Tuesday night. Plus, If Trump can solve all problems with “great people,” why can’t he build a ground game?; Ben Carson is now running to be Donald Trump’s VP, and, The Democrats are in serious trouble.

Speaker Ryan recently admonished the House Freedom Caucus and later spoke to Heritage Action, calling on conservatives to put their principles on hold in 2016. Ryan’s position is a betrayal of conservatives, say 89% of those responding to the poll. Removing Ryan as Speaker has 84% support according to the poll.

Professor Paul Ehrlich of Stanford University explained the goal of Smart Growth and the UN's Agenda 2030 best when he said, “A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States. De-development means bringing our economic system into line with the realities of ecology and the world resource situation.”

They rise and fall through the ups and downs of the media cycle, mechanically mouth the same positions that are at odds with the views of the Republican Party’s conservative grassroots base and are eventually whacked back down below ground level when conservatives understand they hold the same views on immigration, amnesty for illegal aliens and Common Core as do Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

The New Hampshire primary may or may not determine which establishment candidates move on no matter who ends up winning. Plus, Trump should know the House always wins, so why isn’t he betting on a better ground game?; Trump doubles down on revolutionary rhetoric to stir up enthusiasm, and, Cruz feels like he can compete everywhere and New Hampshire will prove he can.

The Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule is federal enforcement of Sustainable Development Smart Growth Cities. Until now there was at least a pretense that Smart Growth development was a local process. Now, through the revelation of AFFH, it is clear that such development is a top-down dictatorship, overseen by Obama's Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Now that the first votes are being cast it is time for Donald Trump to stop offering conspiracy theories, conflicting comments and disastrous suggestions about the economy and to come up with some real world plans that voters can sink their teeth into and that prove his much-vaunted business experience actually equips him to make policy for what is still, despite Obama’s best efforts to destroy it, the world’s largest economy.

    Wednesday on “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” Limbaugh suggested, “Let me say one [thing]: if conservatism is your bag, if conservatism is the dominating factor in how you vote, there is no other choice for you in this campaign than Ted Cruz because you are exactly– this is the closest in our lifetimes we have ever been to Ronald Reagan.”

  • Aaron Blake, Washington Post

    Moving forward, it's easy to see how the Granite State could one day look like a very minor bump along Cruz's path to the Republican presidential nomination. The next few weeks of the GOP race look a whole lot more like Iowa than New Hampshire. And that is fantastic for Cruz.

  • Michelle Fields, Breitbart

    “What Iowa and New Hampshire demonstrate is that the only person in this field who can beat Donald Trump is me,” Cruz said on “The Mike Gallagher Show.”  “In many ways, this is becoming a two-person race between me and Donald Trump,” Cruz said.

  • Daniel Larison, The American Conservative

    Rubio wants to use his supposed foreign policy experience to give him a boost against his rivals, but it’s quite misleading. More so than any Republican candidate still in the race, Rubio was on board with Obama’s foolish military intervention in Libya, which helped to destabilize Libya and its neighbors for the last five years. That not only calls his judgment into question, but it would make him uniquely ill-suited to face Clinton in the general election. 

  • Senator Rand Paul, Breitbart

    Congress bears some of the blame in that this body continues to abdicate and transfer its power to the President. Nowhere is this more obvious than in foreign policy.

  • Donald Devine, The American Conservative

    The ominous GOP Convention scenario would be for the establishment to manipulate the Republican Party mechanics that run the convention to have the secretary simply declare either Trump or the establishment candidate the winner by only counting those votes they deemed legitimate. Of course, the conservative base would be infuriated and the GOP would lose the general election, but the party would again be back in the hands of the establishment. Heads we win, tails they lose.

  • Scott Greer, Daily Caller

    It’s unfortunately par the course for this spin to come out of New Hampshire. For months — and arguably even years — conservative media has covered Rubio in a manner more reminiscent of Harry Potter fan fiction than that of sober political analysis.

  • Barbara Hollingsworth, CNS News

    On February 4, the Tennessee House of Representatives voted 59-31 to approve Senate Joint Resolution 0067 calling for an Article V convention that would be “limited to proposing amendments to the United States Constitution that impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and limit the terms of office for its officials and for members of Congress.”

  • Caleb Howe, RedState

    Ted Cruz came out of New Hampshire pretty much unscathed. With the campaigns headed to South Carolina, he’s coming to territory that will be naturally friendly for him, assuming that Trump hasn’t poisoned the well too toxically.

  • Daniel Larison, The American Conservative

    The argument for Rubio has long been that mainly by virtue of being young, Cuban-American, and the son of immigrants that he would be able to win over voters that traditionally don’t support the GOP. Both the Edwards and Rubio arguments are exceedingly superficial, and so are the candidates that make them.

  • Alex Leary, The Tampa Bay Times

    Tuesday was a momentum killer for Marco Rubio, who finished fifth behind Jeb Bush and others. Rubio will move on to South Carolina but no longer has a claim as the establishment candidate to beat. Bush has a strong footing in South Carolina and he and his team are suddenly energized, eager to dispatch Rubio for good.

  • Timothy Daughtry, Townhall

    Are we seeing a conservative revolt in which, after seven years of Obama’s radical agenda and Republican collusion, fed-up voters are determined to restore rule of law and put the federal government back in its constitutional corral?  Or is 2016 more of a throw-the-bums out revolt in which outsider status trumps political philosophy?

  • George Zornick, The Nation

    Cruz’s campaign has been premised on uniting evangelicals and Tea Party activists in support of his candidacy, and while Iowa proved he has succeeded on the first count, New Hampshire showed that his whole plan is working.

  • Michelle Fields, Breitbart

    “John Kasich had a good night tonight, but the real winner — the real winner — is the conservative grassroots who propelled us to outright victory in Iowa and to a far stronger result and outcome in New Hampshire than anyone had predicted,” he said.

  • Byron York, Washington Examiner

    According to exit polls, Trump won among men, and he won among women. He won all age groups. All income groups. Urban, suburban, rural. Every issue group. Gun owners and non-gun owners. Voters who call themselves very conservative and those who call themselves moderates. For an establishment that’s been in denial for so long, it’s bitter tasting medicine.
