Is it time to put the Republican Party in their place? You know, at the feet of the people! 

Ted Cruz supporters took all 13 of the delegates up for grabs on Saturday to complete a clean sweep of the state.

But it was not without controversy.

The Cruz camp and GOP establishment leaders strong-armed their way to a sweep by banning Trump delegates and omitting them from the ballots… and listing Cruz delegates TWICE!

Another disgusted Trump supporter from Douglas County had his name removed from the ballot. He posted this video after he was scratched from the ballot without his knowledge after driving to Colorado Springs for the convention.

“I’ve been a lifelong Republican all of my life. And this corrupt bunch of thieves is not even worth fighting for. I’ll find another party that believes more like I do. I’ve had it with them. But Jan Morganyou’re not going to get away with this. I’ll find somebody to listen to me. I’ll find someway to hold you accountable for this.”

Later after he returned home the Trump supporter – Larry Wayne Lindsey – torched his GOPe registration.

I don't know ... Ask Carson... he is endorsing Trump and according to a recent interview Carson said it is because Trump is the only man on the ticket who is not bought and paid for by Establishment money.  He also said Trump is what the Nation needs if it is to reform the corrupt political system.

$ 160 million borrowed from George Soros, billions borrowed from Wall Street bankers and hedge funds, NO he does not owe anyone at all? Get real and wake up - where is the $ 6 million he promised the vets? Maybe he took it because he is cash poor?

I don't need to prove anything... Your the one making wild assertions without proof... Either prove that Carson only endorsed Trump because he is going to help pay off his campaign debt...or withdraw your unfounded acquisition.  Your claims are unsubstantiated, as Carson says he is endorsing Trump because he is what America needs to return to Constitutional Government.

Then Carson is lying or stupid . . where is Trump on the Constitution - he want to sue the press no 1st amendment limits, he wants to make some rifles illegal, no 2nd amendment limits, he wants government to use condemnation to get him land for his mega profits no 5th amendment protections of property rights, 9th amendment he wants a big central all powerful government, 10th amendment he wants the Federal Government to be superior to the States in all things, 16th amendment his is OK they take our property only he wants to redo the plan so his Corporations are not taxed bu the small business and middle class are.

Again you just ignore what Trump says and offer any excuse you can think of.

You do not prove anything because you can not.

More of mangus' DOUBLE STANDARDS

Liberal Progressive and maybe even a big city Boss crook?

We reported earlier on how el Trumpo took money from the government that was meant to go to small businesses affected by the 9/11 terror attacks, but this new…

Oh yes, where is the $ 6 million you were paid for the Vets? Where did it go we need an accounting?

Cable News Devotes 30 Seconds to Mass Arrests Protesting Political Corruption

The protests were widely covered by CSPAN, Al Jazeera, and NPR, among other outlets. But cable news programs, which specialize in American political news, were another story.

THE DEMOCRACY SPRING, a protest movement calling on Congress to “end the corruption of big money in our politics” and “ensure free and fair elections,” converged on Capitol Hill on Monday, staging a nonviolent sit-in that resulted in over 400 arrests — a massive number by Washington sit-in standards.

While the action, dubbed #DemocracySpring, garnered wide coverage on social media and over 136,000 tweets, cable news programs found little time to cover the political protests, instead focusing largely on horse-race coverage of the presidential candidates for most of the day.

During daytime and afternoon news segments, CNN did not devote any coverage to the actions. MSNBC mentioned the protests for approximately 12 seconds, while Fox News mentioned the arrests and discussed the protests for about 17 seconds.

MSNBC and Fox News not only provided minimal coverage, but hosts on both networks misrepresented the protests, claiming they were narrowly focused only on “voting rights issues.” The focus on systemic political corruption, an issue that was widely criticized during the rally yesterday, was ignored.

Later in the day, CNN posted a short item on its website. The protests were widely covered by CSPANAl Jazeera, and NPR, among other outlets. But cable news programs, which specialize in American political news, were another story.

Compare the paltry coverage to a lengthy CNN segment last May, when host Wolf Blitzer featured a correspondent reporting from the scene of a fringe anti-Muslim rally in Phoenix. Left-wing protests in particular haveoften been ignored by mainstream media coverage.


The parent companies of cable news networks are closely tied to the Washington establishment being challenged by protesters on Monday, both spending and receiving some of the big money the protesters are complaining about.

Comcast, parent company of MSNBC, is among the biggest spenders on political lobbying, and its senior management hasraised thousands of campaign dollars for congressional Republicans and Hillary Clinton. Other broadcasting companies havelobbied in recent years against reforms that would diminish the role of big money in election campaigns largely because the bulk of campaign funds are spent on television advertisements, a major source of revenue for television programs. Elizabeth Wilner, senior vice president at Kantar, a media analysis firm, estimated that $4.4 billion would be spent on television ads during the election cycle this year.

Network executives have hardly been shy about celebrating the cash windfall, most notably CBS chief Les Moonves.

Before the demonstrators were arrested, the protesters discussed lack of media coverage for their cause andchanted: “Where is CNN?”

Q&A: Tax Freedom Day

Apr 12, 2016

Q:  What is Tax Freedom Day?
A: 
As tax filing season winds down for the year, taxpayers can look forward to reaching another milestone on April 24.  That’s the day, 114 days into the calendar year (excluding Leap Day), that the nonpartisan Tax Foundation says taxpayers have worked to meet their federal, state and local tax burden. Federal revenue collections in 2016 will be $3.34 trillion and state and local taxes combined will reach $1.64 trillion. That adds up to $4.99 trillion, approaching one-third of national income.  According to the Tax Foundation, Americans will spend more on taxes in 2016 than they will on food, clothing and housing combined. If you factor in savings for retirement and college, it’s no wonder so many Americans are wondering why it’s so hard to get ahead and stay ahead. Working until the middle of April just to foot their tax bill sure makes people feel like they are spinning their wheels to earn a living and pay their own bills. Factor in federal borrowing, and taxpayers have an even gloomier forecast. That’s because if you calculate how much longer taxpayers work to make up for annual federal borrowing, Tax Freedom Day takes 16 days longer to reach: May 10, 2016.  There’s a small bit of consolation, comparatively, for Iowans.  Iowa’s Tax Freedom Day falls on April 14, 2016. Iowa ranks 14th among the 50 states to observe the day when taxpayers in their respective states have earned enough money to pay their tax burden for the year. Residents in Connecticut (#50) must work an extra month (until May 21) to clear their tax hurdle before they start earning money for their own expenses and personal savings.

Q:  Where is Congress in the budget process this year?
A: In February the President proposed a $4.2 trillion budget. His budget projects that revenue collections would cover 86 percent of spending and the remainder, 14 percent, would be borrowed. It never balances. Washington needs to change its mindset. America can’t tax, spend and borrow our way to prosperity. Since President Obama took office, the federal debt has increased $9 trillion to $19 trillion. In fact, the budget deficit – the difference between what the government spends and collects -- surpassed $1 trillion each year from 2009 to 2012. As a member of the Senate Budget Committee, I work to hold government spending accountable as a watchdog for taxpayers. Congress holds the power of the purse strings. Each year, Congress legislates tax dollars for what’s called discretionary and mandatory spending. Roughly speaking, about two-thirds of the budget is mandatory, about one-quarter is discretionary and the rest goes to service the federal debt. The discretionary spending authority changes from year to year to pay for programs and public services such as national security, transportation and infrastructure, scientific research, veterans’ healthcare benefits, food and agriculture, and the military, for example. Mandatory spending is authorized by existing law, such as Social Security and Medicare. Its expenditures depend on the number of people who qualify for benefits from year to year. Over the next several months, lawmakers will hammer out public policy and prioritize spending decisions that fund the government. I’ll continue working to make sure tax dollars are spent and collected as intended on both sides of the federal ledger. Without exception, Iowans at my 99 county meetings tell me they are fed up with reckless spending habits that mortgage the future of their kids and grandkids. It’s morally irresponsible to live high on the hog today and leave it the next generation to pick up the tab. That’s one reason I voted against the $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill in December.  Washington needs to get its fiscal house in order.  As a fiscal conservative, I’ll keep working to rein in the bloated bureaucracy, expose wrongdoing and account for better stewardship of tax dollars. That includes a bill I introduced in April to close a loophole in the farm payment system. Family farmers are hitting the fields this spring with uncertainty about low commodity prices. Congress needs to strengthen the farm safety net for those it was intended to serve, not an unlimited number of “non-farming” family members.  Although I secured language in both the House and Senate passed farm bills to curb abusive farm payments, last-minute negotiations on the final 2014 farm bill restricted the USDA’s ability to eliminate this loophole. There are more loopholes I’m working to close across the sprawling bureaucracy, from wasteful U.S. military spending in Afghanistan to corruption and cronyism at public housing authorities. What’s more, the federal government in 2014 made $124 billion in improper payments, according to the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office, $19 billion more than the previous year. What’s worse, the GAO estimates there have been $1 trillion in federal tax dollars lost to improper payments since reporting began in 2003.  Also consider the extensive use of paid administrative leave that has resulted in some federal workers collecting tens of millions of dollars not to report to work. Incredibly, the federal government paid 263 employees from 2011-2013 to stay off-the-job for a year or more, with paychecks exceeding $31 million. I’m working to pass bipartisan legislation that would curb abusive practices and federal agencies’ misuse of paid administrative leave. As Iowans wrap up another tax filing season, I will continue working to keep a tight leash on federal spending so that taxpayers may be able to celebrate Tax Freedom Day earlier rather than later.

Republican party has fallen into a divided house. A divided house cannot stand. More importantly,,,A corrupted house can not stand. Our fore fathers would be rolling over in their graves! The silent majority can no longer be silent. We have to take back control of our country! Big government has brain washed our youth. They think socialism is a good thing. The school system has avoided teaching them the value, sacrifice and wisdom that describes our Constitution! Life long politicians are living off us, making big bucks, WHILE BEING IMMUNE TO THE VERY LAWS THEY IMPOSE ON US. THEY VOTE THEMSELVES PAY RAISES WITH NO OPPOSITION! 

I for one am damn tired of this shit! What the hell, this generation can't even decide what freakin bathroom to use. WTF!!!!

All the videos are down, so I like the image Hank found about GOP,....:)

ALERT ALERT

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
