Trump's Other Wall

More and more Republicans want to build a wall, but not the one Donald Trump has in mind. Their wall is to protect them from what they increasingly believe will be a humiliating defeat for their presidential nominee and – possibly – catastrophic losses for congressional Republicans

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) has sent out a frantic call for deep pocket Republican donors to dig deeper because Trump is putting the House GOP majority in danger. 

Over in the Senate the chances are better for a Democratic takeover.

Only Thing 'Rigged' Is Crybaby's Excuses

Donald Trump's complaints about a rigged election is just a crybaby looking for an excuse to use when he loses the election.

Like so much of his ranting it is based on a lie told over and over, louder and louder, as if that made it so.

Pence Out-Of-Step With Jewish Voters

Mike Pence's pro-Israel credentials are more in line with the GOP's religious right and evangelical base than with the overwhelming majority of American Jews. 

The Indiana governor, who Donald Trump is expected to pick as his running-mate, is a genuine right wing ideologue and has the record to prove it. That should help Trump among arch-conservatives and some in the GOP establishment  who consider Trump too volatile and unreliable.

NRA, GOP Shoot Down Gun Safety Measures

The Senate plans to vote Monday on four gun control proposals -- including banning the sale of assault rifles to anyone on the terror watch list -- and all will be shot down because obeying the National Rifle Association is a higher priority, especially among Republicans, than the safety and well-being of their constituents.

How Moderate Is John Kasich?

With each passing primary, John Kasich's chances of becoming the Republican presidential nominee shrink, an ironic fate for the candidate who polls show has the best chance for winning in November.

He is still hoping that Nasty and Nastier knock each other out and force a brokered convention which picks him as the adult alternative to lead the party. 

Our R-Rated Presidential Campaign

I don’t want my young granddaughters watching the television coverage of presidential campaign because so much is simply unsuitable for children. 

What should be a unique learning experience about American democracy in action has become an R-rated assault on the senses.

I've never seen one like this. Not Nixon's dirty tricks, not LBJ's daisy petals, not George H.W. Bush's Willy Horton (if you don't remember, Google them).

Questioning Politicians

Why is Donald Trump afraid to release his tax returns?  He keeps promising to do it and putting it off.  Is it that he didn't pay very much or anything at all?  Mitt Romney thinks "We have good reason to believe there's a bombshell in Donald Trumps taxes." Either he's not anywhere near as wealthy as says he is, or he hasn't been paying the taxes he should or he's not giving level of contributions to vets, the disabled and others he has boasted of, Romney said.

Diversity, Republican Style

Republicans claim that country's only Indian-American Republican governor, Nikki Haley (now that Bobby Jindal is out of office) and the country's only African American Republican senator, Tim Scott, endorsing the anti-immigration son of a Cuban immigrant, Marco Rubio, constitutes diversity in the GOP, which has only one Jewish member in the entire Congress. 

Putin Endorses Trump

I don't know how well it will go over with the neo-cons and the anti-Communist wing of the GOP, but Vladimir Putin is backing Donald Trump.

The Russian President told reporters at his annual news conference in Moscow that the American capitalist "is a very outstanding man, unquestionably talented." 

Why I'm voting for Ben Carson

1.  He loves Jews.  Why else would he credit Joseph with building the Pyramids as grain storage silos? He knows what he knows and is too smart to be confused by the facts. "Joseph built the pyramids to store grain," he said.  Would Dr. Ben lie to us?

2. He saw the arrangement of the 13 5-pointed stars on the $1 bill as a Magen David, thereby establishing US support for Israel dating back 151 years before the founding of the modern state of Israel.  That's commitment.
