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.
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.
Presidential Horse Race 2016: New Hampshire results -- Marco “Roboto’s” crushing loss overshadows Donald Trump’s impressive win
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.
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.
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.
Donald Trump continues to look strong in all of the New Hampshire polls, though evidence on the ground hints Ted Cruz may do significantly better than expected.
Going into the ABC Saturday night "dinner date debate" the FedUp PAC poll showed Donald Trump leading with 49%, while Senator Ted Cruz had 37% backing. Marco Rubio, who seems to be emerging as the choice of the GOP establishment, had only 14% and is counting on a strong debate performance to boost the flagging hopes of the GOP establishment.
When Marco Rubio was really being challenged for the first time — by New Jersey Governor Christie, a world-class bully, no less — he wilted. He was like an artificially intelligent robot confronted with a logical question his programming couldn’t handle.
Presidential Horse Race 2016: ABC Republican debate: The beginning of repetitious Rubio’s precipitous decline
Marco Rubio’s canned and thrice (at least) repeated response to Chris Christie’s attacks on his “25 second speech” will likely damage the Florida senator’s chances in New Hampshire and beyond. Plus, ABC does a few things differently; Carly Fiorina was barred at the door, but will it end up helping her?; Get the ring ready, the establishment appears ready to propose; Cruz quietly makes his points, shores up conservative support; Trump doesn’t understand eminent domain but loves the police, and, In two more days, we’ll know.
With Senator Paul’s departure from the Presidential contest, Ted Cruz is the only candidate running for President who would advance the causes that have been so ably championed by Rand Paul. To protect your civil liberties, to roll back special interests and the Washington cartel, to reign in the Fed, and to advance criminal justice reform, we urge Rand Paul’s liberty movement voters to support Ted Cruz for President.
Much as the Iowa losers would like to make it otherwise, Hillary Clinton is going to run a smart, technologically savvy, in the moment, ruthless wedge-issue-driven campaign and trying to defeat the Clinton machine using the rules of etiquette as taught at a finishing school for little girls is a sure formula for defeat.
Carson campaign’s failure to react leads to “Trumpertantrum”. Plus, Rick Santorum proves he doesn’t know anything about Marco Rubio; Fiorina plays gender card to make the stage for Saturday night’s debate, doesn’t work, and, George W. Bush brought in to try and rescue flailing brother Jeb.
At the Saudis’ behest Washington backs their misbegotten war in Yemen and remains formally committed to the overthrow of Syrian President Bashir al-Assad, the strongest force opposing the far more dangerous Islamic State. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia also underwrites extremist Islamic teaching in madrassas around the world.
Rick Santorum attempted to present himself as an advocate for the all but forgotten interests of America’s working men and women, yet when Santorum exited the campaign he hypocritically chose to endorse Senator Marco Rubio – the leading advocate of open borders and amnesty for illegal aliens; the very policies that Santorum campaigned against.
Rand Paul and Rick Santorum scratch themselves from the Republican presidential horse race card. Plus, Is it Marco Romn-io or Mitt Rubi-ney?; Trump and Cruz should unite against the establishment, not fight each other, and, Jimmy Carter would rather have Trump than Cruz.

Ted Cruz’s victory in the Iowa Caucuses blew the Republican establishment's idea of a pause or truce in the battle for the culture right out of the sky. Cruz’s unabashed appeal to faith-first voters, his vast support among politically active conservative Christians and Jews, and his deep personal faith guarantee that the cultural issues will not be off the table this campaign.
