Trump’s Great Russia and Our Expense

Donald Trump’s supporters are today involved in a scene-chewing display of apoplexy over how recalcitrant conservatives are out to get their guy. This week, Ted Cruz is public enemy number one, but it was someone else last week. You can bet it will be another Republican foil next week, too. For the GOP nominee’s coterie of flatters, to acknowledge that the real problem for Donald Trump is Donald Trump is to give up on 2016, the White House, and all it’s associated power and influence. It was Trump himself, however, who sabotaged his supporters this week far more than Cruz’s subtle refusal to bend his knee. The latest bit of self-sabotage from Trump is no contrivance or fleeting political controversy. It cuts at the very heart of a question millions of non-partisan American patriots are asking themselves right now: is Donald Trump a fit person to be president? The conclusion that more and more are reaching based on the candidate’s own comments is “no.”

Do Zionists Have Civil Rights?

Smeared for doing the job.

When then-presidential candidate Donald Trump famously declared his intention to be a “neutral” arbiter of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian territories and put the onus for resolving the conflict on Jerusalem, few observers could have predicted that Trump would run one of the most pro-Israel administrations in American history.
