Like Hillary Clinton, either through willful blindness or sympathy with its anti-western agenda, for almost two decades Tim Kaine has associated with and allowed himself to be penetrated by the Muslim Brotherhood and its front groups. At a time when Islam’s war against the West is reaching an increasingly violent phase electing Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine as President and Vice President amounts to national suicide.
For many movement conservatives the leading conservative candidate for Vice President in 1980 was Senator Bill Armstrong. However, feeling the need to unite the GOP, Ronald Reagan ultimately chose George H.W. Bush as his running mate, and the rest – including the failed presidencies of George H.W Bush and George W. Bush – is history.
Opposition to free trade is one of the few major policy positions shared by Sanders and Trump supporters and some pro-Bernie demonstrators outside the Democratic National Convention said they are voting for Trump. “He knows how to create jobs,” said John Smith, a 58-year old air conditioning and refrigeration technician from Philadelphia. “What has she done? Her husband signed that NAFTA agreement.”

Every day I wake up determined to deliver a better life for the people all across this nation that had been ignored, neglected and abandoned.
Donald Trump’s speech on Thursday night touched on all the themes of his campaign and emphasized his deep passion for fighting for America’s little guy against the elites.

Republican primary voters tend toward primogeniture and they may make a cause out of a closely fought loss, as Nixon’s supporters did over his 1960 loss to John F. Kennedy and Reagan’s conservative supporters did in 1976 after he was denied the Republican nomination, but it appears that general election voters have a higher standard and they will never forgive or look at a sore loser as worthy of the highest office in the land.
How long that leadership lasts, or if it will be contested, remains to be seen, but by joining the Trump ticket, and last night through his remarks to the Republican National Convention, Mike Pence showed he understands the Trump coalition is the future, and he showed real leadership by making himself an essential element of that coalition’s success in the 2016 election; future-focused conservatives now have the leader they’ve been looking for and it's Mike Pence.

In doing so Ted Cruz lost his chance to be the leader of the conservative movement, and effectively handed that mantle over to Mike Pence, in whom conservatives are now likely to invest their time, energy, resources and hopes to advance the conservative agenda.
