Getting Mexico to pay for the wall is like pulling a rabbit out of a sombrero. It’s an illusion.


At the end of this article, I will declare my willingness to do something that would get me arrested if Donald Trump can get Mexico to pay for his wall. I’m 100% certain that if he’s able to win the nomination (doubtful) and then the general election (nearly impossible) that he will never be able to get Mexico to fork over more than a token portion of the massive budget required to build and maintain the wall.

Poor decisions, campaign infrastructure: A prelude to a Trump Presidency

Donald Trump Infrastructure

Campaigning to become a party’s nominee for President of the United States is very difficult. It requires attention to detail, knowledge of the rules, understanding of the terrain, properly planned infrastructure, and the ability to make good decisions. Once nominated, the race to accumulate states through the electoral college and operate within the confines of unfriendliness associated with reaching out to independents and members of the opposite party is even more difficult than the nomination campaign.

Rule 40B cannot be allowed to swing both ways based on the Establishment’s whims

Romney McCain

In 2012, the Establishment had an agenda. They didn’t want Ron Paul and his “crazies” mucking up the Republican convention by trying to draw attention to themselves. They wanted to demonstrate unity by having all of the attention paid to the nominee, Mitt Romney. As a result, RNC Rule 40B was established. Now, the tables have turned and none of their guys has a chance at the nomination, so there has been talks of eliminating the suddenly outdated rule. This would be a betrayal to the base of the Republican party and would represent the reality that the Establishment wants control of the party more than they want a victory in November. Read More

Cruz builds a California leadership team of epic proportions

Ted Cruz California

One of the biggest knocks against Donald Trump has been that the country cannot afford someone who requires on-the-job-training. It isn’t just the monumental task of learning what it takes to be President. It’s also the events that lead up to the election, including the nominating process. For this, Ted Cruz has demonstrated a profoundly higher understanding and it’s showing in California. Read More

Kasich finally gets the spotlight he craves. Now, the scrutiny will destroy him.

John Kasich Scrutiny

For months, John Kasich has taken every opportunity in his scarce debate moments, infrequent interviews, and low-volume stump speeches to point out how little attention he was getting from the media. As one of the three finalists for the GOP nomination, he’s going to get more attention than ever before. That attention is going to reveal three¬†things: he’s not a good candidate for President, he probably shouldn’t be Vice President, and he’s not a very good governor of Ohio. Read More

If Rubio and Kasich drop out after #SuperTuesday, the math clearly favors Cruz over Trump

Ted Cruz SuperTuesday

With all of the attention being given to Donald Trump as the likely GOP nominee, there’s a problem that nobody seems to be discussing. Even if Trump wins Ohio and Florida, his path to the nomination is greatly hampered if Marco Rubio and John Kasich drop out. In fact, winning their states and knocking them out might be the worst thing that Trump could do. Read More
