On the RINO National Convention

Trump seemingly has a few good points going for him. He says he will stop the insanity of admitting middle east “refugees”, and wants to clamp down on illegal immigration. I’d like to know what he wants to do about so-called central American “refugees” whom Obama is inviting into our fair country, and once here, is lavishing resettlement and benefits galore. He wants to take care of the Vets and fix the VA, but on most other issues, he is just another progressive liberal. That is why the RINOs like him, and they can count on him to be willing to make a deal. After all, he is the self-professed king of the deal. 

Trump is not an outsider, and his business acumen is also open to question. The RINOs have declared war on Constitutional TEA Party conservatives, you know, us little people who gave them the House and later the Senate in order to stop Obama, and instead betrayed us by giving Obama everything he wanted, even after we got Boehner tossed as Speaker. I’ll stop right here, more comments below. 

Welcome to RichTAkes! On the RINO National Convention!

Check out the Trump and Hillary look-a-likes near the end!

Sadness For Friends Who Cannot Be Sad

I’m sure I’m not alone in thinking that the RNC reminds me more of a wake, instead of a look ahead at a future to support and believe in. Erick Erickson’s coherent thoughts on what is happening to the party at the RNC.

>> . . . it is just meaningless team sport in favor of their team. There is no substance, just sloganeering that means as much to each person and is taken as much differently by each person as “hope and change” was in 2008.

So much could have changed, but nothing will. And in four years, the very people who lamented Trump only to jump on his train cheerleading to the end will be back at it again because “not Clinton.” <<

The Failure of the Republican Party: Never Forget that the GOP Establishment Preferred Trump to Cruz

     

Uh-Oh: Putin Hired Internet Trolls To Pretend To Be Pro-Trump Conservatives

GOP elites get their guy in Georgia

McConnell promised to crush the TEA Party over two years ago. After smashing Bevin with Trump’s support, McDaniel, Cruz, Stutzman, and others, the RINOs are now attacking Tim Huelskamp.

The irony of the GOPe defeating Stutzman for the IN Senate nomination is that they will probably now lose that seat. I don’t think they even care. Former Governor and Senator Evan Bayh tossed his hat into the ring last week. Bayh will probably win on name recognition alone. Stutzman would have had a chance, but this Young guy, hand-picked by McConnell, is an unknown back-bencher.

CHAOS: Republican Convention Shatters As Trump Lackeys Steamroll Rules Vote

Under the rules of the convention, a majority of seven delegations could force a roll vote on the rules; it would then take a majority of the delegates to toss the rules committee’s book. At least 11 states signed on: Colorado, Washington, Utah, Minnesota, Wyoming, Maine, Iowa, Virginia, Alaska, North Dakota, and Washington D.C.

So the secretary of the convention hid behind a curtain to avoid having to accept the signatures.

Mission Accomplished TAkes!

John Kasich: “Mission Accomplished” ishot-562

” [sic] My job stopping Cruz is over, so I’m suspending my campaign”. Kasich’s sole purpose was to stop Cruz, nothing else makes any sense.  

What the Indiana results really mean is a yuge Establishment win, and also a knock-down blow to the TEA Party. It is about Trump, but that is really just the tip of the ice-berg. The RINOs are laughing with glee that they forced out Cruz, and defeated many patriot candidates in the process. The GOP establishment knows that they can “work with” Trump, not so much with Cruz.

McConnell and his national Republican senate campaign fund swooped into several states, recruited reliable hacks and actively fought against constitutional conservatives and TEA Party candidates. Indiana is a good example of that, they recruited and ran Todd Young against a proven conservative, Marlin Stutzman. Young’s establishment bona-fides are without question: he is a former aide to Dick Lugar, whom we primaried out years ago. The ad campaign was brutal, and predictably was filled with nothing but lies. Somehow they convinced voters that Stutzman was the establishment pick, and a “career Politician”. Stutzman was a two-term Congressman. He is also a farmer who owns a small ag-oriented trucking fleet, and a true Patriot.

The pattern is like shampoo: lather, rinse, repeat. Conservative TEA Party activists gave Republicans the House, and later the Senate, who repaid them by spitting on them. The RINOs have shown that they are not really interested in the issues and platforms which they claim to support. When a real Constitutional conservative comes along who wants to limit the federal government, and get back to what made our country exceptional in the beginning, they do everything in their power to defeat them. Cruz and Stutzman are only the latest victims to fall to RINOs, McDaniel in LA, and Bevin in KY are two other recent high-profile examples.

still the greatest ad of the run-up, hands down!

The Trump Empire Strikes Back!

Donald Trump needs to reach a majority on a first ballot to win the Republican nomination, he has little chance on a second or subsequent ballot at the Republican National Convention.

Tuesday in New York Trump took a giant step towards that end. It is no surprise that Trump won NY, but the margin that he won it by might have been. He received about 60% of the vote, and Kasich might have picked up 5 delegates, while Cruz goose-egged. Donald Trump did much better than I predicted, he looks like he will pocket 90 delegates when all is said and done.

Next week, the rest of the Mid-Atlantic and North East region will go to the polls, and Donald will do very well then too. PA and MD will be in play.

In the west, Trump will not have such an easy road. Cruz will easily win most of the remaining western states, and his support is pretty strong in California, too. This means that for the first time in my life, Indiana will play a “yuge” role in a primary election ballot on May 3rd. Since Indiana is an open primary state, it is a good thing that Hillary is facing a strong challenge from socialist democrat Bernie Sanders. That should keep the cross-over vote down.

The Hoosier State will likely decide the next Republican Nominee.

Please fill in the little oval for Ted Cruz!

But you know, if you look at what’s happening to our country, I mean, when you see what’s going on with our country, how people are taking advantage of us, and how they scoff at us and laugh at us. And they laugh at our face, and they’re taking our jobs, they’re taking our money, they’re taking the health of our country. And we have to be firm and have to be very strong. And we can learn a lot from the Bible, that I can tell you.

TRUMP: Well I know China very well, because I deal with China all the time. I’ve done very well. China’s unbelievably ambitious. China is, uh… I mean, when I deal with China, you know, I have the Bank of America building, I’ve done some great deals with China. I do deals with them all the time on, you know, selling apartments, and, you know, people say ‘oh that’s not the same thing.’ The level of… uh, the largest bank in the world, 400 million customers, is a tenant of mine in New York, in Manhattan. The biggest bank in China. The biggest bank in the world.

China has got unbelievable ambitions. China feels very invincible. We have rebuilt China. They have drained so much money out of our country that they’ve rebuilt China. Without us, you wouldn’t see the airports and the roadways and the bridges; I mean, the George Washington Bridge is like, that’s like a trinket compared to the bridges that they’ve built in China. We don’t build anymore, and it, you know, we had our day. But China, if you look at what’s going on in China, you know, they go down to seven percent or eight percent and it’s like a national catastrophe. Our GDP is right now zero. Essentially zero.

The Wisconsin Pivot Point TAkes!

Excellent Wisconsin

The Cheese-heads of Wisconsin have spoken, and spoken loudly, giving Ted Cruz a huge, huge, landslide victory in the Republican Primary yesterday. Cruz out-performed the polls again by close to ten points, winning over 48% of ballots cast in a three man race. Two weeks ago, all of the smart money said that this would be a cake-walk for Trump, now it seems that there is little chance of Trump walking into the Convention this summer with a majority of delegates. I should probably also note that self-described socialist Bernie Sanders also whipped Hillary in Wisconsin, and whipped her badly.

On The Numbers

Rich Takes! On the Numbers:

Donald Trump has proven himself to be a petulant school boy, not unlike our current POTUS.

If anyone doesn’t agree with anything he says, his first response is to launch a character assassination attack, not unlike Saul Alinsky.

A very small Political Action Committee, consisting of one woman with a 20,000.00 budget recently posted a graphic meme featuring Melania in a nude photo shoot, asking the question is this what your next first lady should look like. I think it is a legitimate question, certainly the Dem’s opposition research files already were well aware of this shoot, which was published by Gentleman’s Quarterly in the UK around fifteen years ago. GQ-UK loves it, and they reposted the original article for all of our peeping Tom urges, and hits of course.

What is not commonly reported is that the shoot was taken on Donald’s gold-laden Boeing 727 jet at the time. Obviously with his full approval and knowledge. Now Trump and his people are laying the blame for this on Cruz, when we don’t even know if she even supports Cruz. By Federal law, it is illegal for POTUS campaigns to have any communication with PACs anyway. The Donald has only himself to blame, he approved the shoot, and now he should approve it again.

As always, my comments are in cayenne.

Here is RichTAkes! On the Numbers.

Et Tu, Drudge?

It is starting to look like Drudge is now in the tank for Trump too, et tu, Drudge?

TedAnnointed

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

I guess it’s okay to make ridiculous highly edited assertions about a certain Presidential candidates religion in the heat of the primary.

I don’t recall the press making a huge deal about JFK’s run for POTUS concerning his Catholic faith, although I’m sure there was a lot of uncertainty about our Pres taking orders from the Pope at the time. I also don’t recall a huge amount of press regarding Obama’s Muslim up-bringing. If you think he’s a Christian, you should google (marxist) liberation theology sometime. The right Reverend Wright preached liberation theology, which has little to do with scripture, and a whole lot to do with grievances. He was not a Catholic, but you can learn more about it here and here. Or search it yourself.

On the other hand, Reagan did help to take down the Soviet empire without spending a single shot, along with the Pope, Maggie Thatcher, and German Chancellor Helmut Kohl (who later started a department store in Wisconsin – just kidding!)

So now comes Drudge posting his top story this morning that Ted Cruz is supposedly the blessed anointed one, when the links he provided showed nothing of the sort. I read two of the three links offered, they showed a typical Rafael Cruz appearance. Thankfully, Trump’s cancelled appearance at UIC knocked this pic off of his page.

Far be it for me to attack anyone who holds deeply held religious beliefs. In fact, I think that is a good thing in nearly all cases, radical jihadis excepted.

Drudge should be ashamed of himself.

Rich TAkes! On Stopping The Trump Train

This edition of Rich TAkes! leads off with a few stories about the San Bernadino shooter’s iPhone 5c.

Has Obama recognized that this couple were radical jihadis yet? Anyway, the FBI apparently tried to change the phone or the iCloud password, and got themselves completely locked out of the phone, so that is why they got a court order to force Apple to create software which completely bypasses the built in encryption and security in iOS. Apple will be appealing, and the outcome will have grave consequences for us all if the government prevails.

Next, the 11th Republican debate just concluded in Detroit. This is perhaps the wildest run up to the general election that we may ever see in our lifetimes. We have a real estate developer, and self-made brand in Donald Trump who is energizing the electorate even more than Obama did in 2008, and he’s not even close to being a conservative. The GOP is getting desperate, especially since the closest rival is Ted Cruz who actually stands by his principles. The establishment GOP is so desperate that Mitt Romney actually gave a speech today which he must have gleaned off of any anti-Trump web page listing Trump’s numerous faults and failures, while openly advocating to deny Trump a first ballot nomination at the convention. I wonder what rules will need to be changed? If Romney is angling to swoop in and save the party in a brokered convention he is kidding himself.

I don’t trust Trump since he has taken three sides to nearly every topic, and his foreign policy credibility is greatly suspect. For example, last fall he said to let the Russians take out ISIS, and reversed himself mere days later.

As I noted last August, Trump has done the Republican Party a great service by getting people who would not take much interest in the process into the fray, but don’t kid yourself, he is not a conservative. He doesn’t even know what the meaning of the word is. He may also be helping the GOP to disintegrate, since the GOP has only themselves to blame for this interesting turn of events.

“may you live in interesting times” might be appropriate here. I hope you enjoy the

Tonight will be the last Republican debate before Super Tuesday so I thought that I’d post some of my reading material about the candidates in general fromElect Ted the past few weeks. Trump has just come off a resounding victory in the Nevada caucuses where he managed to outfit many of the election officials in official Trump hats and Tees. Jeb Bush has dropped out after South Carolina, while Kasich and Carson vow to stay in to the convention. Meanwhile, on the Democrat side, Hillary and Sanders are duking it out for the communist and felon vote. Finally, Antonin Scalia passed away a week or so ago, reminding us on why we absolutely have to get this election right. We may not have another chance. I am officially endorsing Ted Cruz for President, and I hope you do too.
