Donald Trump Joins 2016 White House Race

Donald Trump is making it official today that he is entering the 2016 presidential campaign. On Monday, Trump released a brief financial statement pegging his net worth at some $9 Billion dollars. The Donald has been threatening to run for the White House before, but this time it looks like he is serious. Trump has been very critical of Barack Obama and how America has lost ground during his administration, both economically and as a world power in general. While Trump has never held any public office before, nor ever ran for any, he does bring to the table a unique set of skills. Though many Republican primary voters seem to not want anything to do with Donald, he is currently in 9th place on the Real Clear Politics average of poll numbers. This will give him a shot at attending the debates and demonstrate that he is more than just an ego.

Jeb Bush 2016 Joins Campaign Race

Today, former Florida governor Jeb Bush makes it official as he joins the 2016 presidential campaign race. For about the past six months, his ′exploratory committee′ has been busy gathering money from donors. Now he is entering the 2016 election race armed with upwards of $100,000,000 dollars committed to Bush. But will cash alone succeed in winning Jeb the Republican Party nomination?

GOP Senators Cave on Obama Secret Trade Deal

On Friday, the US Senate passed a bill giving Barack Obama additional ′fast-track′ powers in negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. The bill includes provisions blocking transparency such that secret elements may be part of the agreement. Many see this as Republican senators caving into White House demands. But not everything went Obama′s way as a human-trafficking provision was also included, which may cause Malaysia to be left out of the 11-nation trade deal. They may still be part of the TPP if they can show they are making some progress in reducing slave labor in their country.

Marco Rubio Announces 2016 Presidential Campaign, Fresh Face for White House Race!

Appearing before a cheering crowd of thousands at the Freedom Towers in Miami, Florida, Senator Marco Rubio announced his 2016 presidential campaign bid. His prepared speech was delivered well, highlighting his humble beginnings and an eye to the future of America. A future that does not need the politics of yesterday, namely the policies of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Policies of utter failure! Rubio, on the other hand, is the fresh face with fresh ideas behind it. Marco Rubio believes that his leadership is what is needed for occupying the White House in order to put the United States back on track towards a brighter future.

The junior U.S. Senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul, announced his 2016 presidential campaign run this morning. Sen. Paul, a favorite of many in the Tea Party, became the second Republican to declare a bid for the White House. ″I am running for president″, Paul stated in an ad on his website, adding a pledge to ″return our country to the principles of liberty and limited government.″ His website is already selling autographed copies of the Constituuuuuution as well as other fun items like Rand Paul beer steins. Paul brings with him an established following from his father, Ron Paul and many Libertarians and independents. His appeal to younger voters and others who typically do not cast ballots for Republicans is quite high.

Glenn Beck explains leaving GOP

Last night on Fox News, our old pal Glenn Beck explained what he meant when he announced last week that he was done with the Republican Party to his buddy, Lord Haw-Haw, a.k.a. Bill O′Reilly. I have to say that I was puzzled by this ′announcement′ when I first read about last week. Many of the articles, even Haw-Haw himself begun the interview last, approached the subject as if Beck were leaving the GOP. Like Glenn was a car-carrying member of the RNC or something. This puzzled me since I can clearly recall from years ago, back when Beck had a show on FNC, that he had said, many times, that he was not a Republican. If anything, he′s been leaning more Libertarian for the past few years.

Ted Cruz First To Run for White House in 2016

It′s official! Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz is the first to announce his run for the White House in 2016! Today, Cruz will appear before a packed auditorium at Liberty University in Virginia to declare his candidacy for president. But shortly after midnight, Cruz tweeted his intentions on Twitter. Of course, everybody knew he was going to do so. However, any doubts that he was merely going to announce the formation of an exploratory committee, as other potential GOP candidates have already done so, are now put to rest. Nearly every poll so far shows Cruz near the bottom of the barrel as a primary contender. With less than 5 months to go before the first GOP presidential debate, can Cruz raise enough money and voter support to make a difference?

Phil Robertson at CPAC, Rand Paul Wins Straw Poll

CPAC 2015 ended Saturday with a whimper, not a bang. Rand Paul won the CPAC straw poll for a third time in a row with about 25.7% of the vote. Scott Walker, who probably gave one of the better speeches at the conference, came in second with 21.4%. Ted Cruz and Dr. Ben Carson followed them with 11.5% and 11.4% respectively, and poor Jeb Bush took 5th place with just 8.3%. The rest of the deluge of GOP hopefuls lagged well behind with none above 5%. But it may be the A&E, ′Duck Dynasty′ star, Phil Robertson, who wowed the crowd at CPAC with his remarks about how he blames hippies for STDs and gave John Boehner a verbal ′hot foot′. He also referred to the Barack Obama White House as being full of ′non-Christians′. Needless to say, the Liberal Media is all aghast by this.
