The Seduction TAkes!

This Tuesday will be the Wisconsin Primary, and it looks like Cruz and Sanders are going to win going away. While this will be a set-back for both Clinton and Trump, they both face larger issues. For Trump, this looming loss will likely mean that he won’t get to a majority of delegates to seal the deal on the first ballot in Cleveland. It would take divine intervention for him to win on a second or subsequent ballot. 

For Clinton, this will mean that the delegate count will be close to neck and neck discounting the Democrat Super Delegates, who can change their support at any time. Even worse, the FBI investigation into her personal email server and the national security issues that entails should be wrapped up by the end of the month. If the FBI issues a referral to the DOJ all bets are off.

Finally, some guy named John Kasich is still in the Republican race, even though he has no mathematical chance of winning the nomination, and can not even be nominated on the RNC convention floor under current rules, or even the rules from 2008. We’ll deal with Kasich first. At this point his presence only serves to stop Cruz, not Trump  kasich-issues

Ted Cruz: No, Rule 40 shouldn’t be changed to make John Kasich eligible for the nomination

40B is the rule that states that a candidate must have a majority of delegates from 8 states in order to even be nominated on the Convention floor. This was changed from simply winning a plurality of delegates in 5 states in 2012 after it was discovered that the IA delegation had been taken over by Paul supporters even though Santorum and Romney virtually tied for first place in IA. (Santorum eventually won with mere dozens of votes to spare two weeks after caucus night.)

There is no way at this point that Kasich can meet either the 2008 or 2012 standard to even be nominated at the Convention. You gotta wonder what the heck is he doing by continuing in the race. At this point he is merely blocking downfield for Trump. A vote for Kasich is a vote for Trump.

If you really want to know what is going on with Trump supporters, and why no amount of discussion will help them to acknowledge certain (any?) facts and issues with his candidacy, read this piece. It’s a cult! It’s mass hypnotization! It’s seduction! Read this, seriously!

Rich TAkes! On the Primary Stakes

Rich TAkes! On the Primary Stakes

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.  

Rush broadcast a classic rant the other day below, and I hope you enjoy this edition of RichTAkes! 

Rush: What This Election Is Really About and What’s Really at Stake

“…if we’re serious about stopping this transformation of America, it isn’t gonna be easy, and winning an election is not gonna send a signal to the other side to stand down, you lost.  They don’t look at it that way.  This is a fight between socialism and capitalism, freedom versus tyranny, however you want to categorize.  There isn’t any overlap.”
