Trump’s Empty Foreign Policy Speech

Donald Trump finally gave that much-anticipated "serious" speech on foreign policy, using the same teleprompter that he has hammered Obama for using. But even though it was a pre-written talk that has taken weeks and weeks to prepare, it was little more than a slogan: "America first." How profound. … [Read more...]

Beck: GOP Campaign to Go to Convention as a Test From God

Trump: I Will Fix All Your Problems

Donald Trump is nothing if not a snake oil salesman. He's got the cure to all of your problems, every single one of them. When he's elected, “all of the bad things happening in the U.S. will be rapidly reversed.” Here's what he told an audience in Rhode Island: … [Read more...]

Massive Jerk to Campaign for Massive Jerk

Legendary former Indiana University basketball coach Bobby Knight, an absolutely brilliant coach but a ball of rage personally, is going to campaign for Donald Trump. This makes perfect sense to me. Knight is angry, vindictive, simpleminded, egotistical and megalomaniacal. Who else would he support but Trump? … [Read more...]

Cruz and Kasich Team Up to Deny Trump 1237 Delegates

Well this is an interesting development.

Muslims for Trump is a Thing That Exists

Apparently there are Muslims who support Donald Trump, which sounds to me a lot like Jews for Hitler. Of course, they can't make any more coherent a case for him than any other Trump fan, so they rely on vague nonsense and the hope that he doesn't really mean the things he says. … [Read more...]
