    I missed Trump’s speech today, but here is a transcript. Made me feel better, just to read it!

  6. DeniseVB says:

    For those of you who missed this downstairs, it’s now must see youtube. It’s gone viral. Worth every second of the 90 minutes. Like streaming a movie, only FREE😀 Clips are being shown everywhere (including Gutfeld) but you have to see the whole thing in context, it will make you ragey, happy, ragey, annoyed, jubilant…..I think this will put Milo’s college tour on the national map.

    • DeniseVB says:

      FYI…just follow Milo on twitter. No, better, just search Milo on twitter to get his very prolific feed that somehow doesn’t show up on my feed. I have to do that on FB too.

    I hit Nirvana today. Most bestest day ever. I was having vegan tacos with brat and her friend. I said in passing that when I was kid way down in the fall I was cold and my momma made a coat out of tissues and I wore it so proudly. Crud threw a fit and yelled at me “you are not Dolly Parton”
    So happy. She gets absurd next up Pere Ubu.

    • DeniseVB says:

      What a lovely audience to give that veteran such a respectful welcome. Methinks Bobby Knight carries a little more weight than Carly in Indiana🙂

  10. CiscoKid says:

    Coach Knight nailed it, “beat your ass everytime”.
    There are no second place winners.

    • taw46 says:

      As a former HP employee, I hear ya!

      UNIX jobs went to India, Finance to Indonesia, and Database jobs to Mexico. In Atlanta, she emptied out a 22-story building in no time flat.

  12. Dora says:

    In case anyone missed it. 🙂

    • mothy67 says:

      She reminds me of Wayland Flowers and Madam.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Thanks for finding that🙂 I really tried to watch the whole event, but ended up muting the tv about half way through Ted’s looooooooooong speech. Carly was ok, but ended up muting her too.

      News feeds are full of NeverTrumps applauding this new “dream ticket” and AlwaysTrumps LOL’ing. I think it was Ann Coulter who said, Carly isn’t a running mate, she’s a limping mate. The NeverTrumps think Cruz/Carly have Indiana and California locked up. We shall see🙂

  13. DeniseVB says:

    Indiana’s turn to be “the most important state ever!” Then again, on election night we’ll probably find out if it matters or not😛

    • CiscoKid says:

      Maybe the fence will keep out the over 19,000 illegal aliens that ICE released, failing to deport them.
      Murders, rapist, and a mixed bag of drunken drivers, drug dealers, etc.
      Yes Barry, protect yourself but not America.

    • taw46 says:

      A wall for me but not for thee.

  14. votermom says:

    This is a great analysis

    • votermom says:

      Trump’s strategy was so simple that it’s almost crude: try to win every state. He visited just about every state that held a nominating contest, and refused to concede that there was any place where he couldn’t do well. Because his campaign was not reliant on paid advertising, he was able to use this approach without much regard to his campaign budget.

    • jeffhas says:

      That’s under Bill Kristol’s byline…does that mean Bill is officially over the Denial stage?

      • taw46 says:

        Nope, here is the first paragraph, Bill Kristol’s words. If Trump, he still wants a third candidate.

        “Here is the bulk of an April 24 memorandum from Rich Danker, a bright young conservative operative who ran the Lone Star Committee, an independent expenditure effort on behalf of Ted Cruz. Danker’s insights go beyond his analysis of the 2016 Republican race, and are a helpful guide to any independent candidacy that may be necessary if Trump prevails. Danker has given permission for this part of his memorandum (his analysis of the race) to be reproduced.”

        • jeffhas says:

          I literally ‘mind-blotted’ that part right off the page… I read the “Here is the bulk” through to “analysis of the 2106 Republican race”… Then picked up again at “Danker has genuine permission…”

          WOW – I’m learning how to read Bill Kristol for reals now.

          • taw46 says:

            The analysis was good, enjoyed that read. Since I read some of Kristol’s Twitter feed the other day, it made me pay attention to what he said in beginning.

      • taw46 says:

        Just look at his Twitter feed, still pushing for “establishment” to run someone else.

      • leslie says:

        I completely overlooked the by line even tho’ it was in red!
        I must pay closer attention.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Good read, thanks vm. I think Trump being fearless with the media helped him a lot. Other than Megyn’s show, he’d appear anywhere, anytime. The Cold War is about to end, he’ll be doing an interview with Megyn next month. And, it will be Yuuuuge!

      • taw46 says:

        I just had a discussion with family members the other day about the media coverage of Trump. They were complaining. I reminded them they he went on every show that invited him, whereas others did not. Asked them how many times they saw Hillary, especially on FOX?

    • WMCB says:

      That’s a good piece. And those insights, BTW, were from a CRUZ SUPPORTER – just a rational one with observation skills.

    • lyn says:

      Wow! That was very interesting. Thanks, vm!

    • leslie says:

      Thanks vm. It is quite the read.

  15. CiscoKid says:

    Yes. To me that was the filet minion of the article.
    Folks, grab a couple cups of coffee and read this article, you won’t regret it.
    A terrific “after action report”

    • CiscoKid says:

      Forgot to say thanks votermom for catch & link.

      • votermom says:

        Great read, right? You are very welcome.

        • CiscoKid says:

          Yes. Gives a great insight on how a candidate operates.

          • Lulu says:

            “Why? Being stage-managed gives more power to the consultants. It makes the candidates more dependent on staff and vendors to navigate them through the torture chamber those people make the election into. The consultants become the smart people and the candidate is a commodity. This attitude is shared by the political media, whose access to the candidates is dependent on sharing a worldview about campaigns with those consultants.
            It’s giving Trump too much credit to say that he meant to expose the stupidity of professionalized politics, but that’s what he ended up doing.”
            So true. Look at Rubio. That is what happened to Scott Walker and he bailed and I think probably save his future. And the stuff about Trump running very well almost everywhere builds momentum. Cruz is a niche candidate. And as it has rolled along and he hasn’t done very well it is apparent his “niche” is assholes and globalists since his original target of the “religious” vote seriously don’t like him.

  16. jeffhas says:

    Arrghhhh…. She is at it again:

    “The only think that is crazier than the great unravelling of the right is that people are actually planning to vote for Trump this fall and may completely miss just how good Hillary is compared to everyone else this year. That’s truly insane. It’s insane that after all her experience, preparation, knowledge, commitment, leadership ability and energy, she has to face this guy who can’t adjust his self-tanner who thinks he can sail into the White House by putting down everyone’s mothers, sisters and daughters.
    Stranger things have happened, I guess. Susan Sarandon is probably secretly a Republican. But sometimes I wonder if Donald Trump is secretly a Clintonista.
    What *is* the color of the sky in a Trump voter’s world?”

    First, let’s deal with the sky. It’s blue, but it ‘feels’ like it has been dark and black for a long time… But no worries, I hear nothing but ELO in my ears for the future….

    Second, can I deal with the self-tanner issue for a bit? I gotta admit their isn’t much to defend about Trump’sk orangeness – except to say Hillary looks tired, the bags under her eyes are no match for the sacks she’s carrying on her hips under her designer Mao-Garb (PS: Every dictator wears those things to hide their not powerful PearShape too!). So every candidate has their physical pecadillos…. But I was watching Hiss Crayes show on MSNBC last night while they replayed ‘the non side eye’ seen ’round the world’ and they were messing with the saturation of color (you could literally see it change RIGHT BEFORE YOUR SIDE-EYES) so that Trumps coloring looked like a raccoon that had been skiing in Aspen behind a large pair of Carrera’s (not the car by the way)… And as awful/funny/nauseating as this was, I found myself saying to a room filled with only me – “I’ll take the raccoon please”.

    So thank you RD, for celebrating ‘the great unraveling of the right’ – meanwhile you party like it’s 2008, complete with condescendion for those who have spent their time and energy on another candidate (yeah, the irony is rich as they say).

    Oh and, ummm, yeah…. There area few words missing from your ‘Hillary is all that’ screed above… Like Competence, Honesty, Humility… Oh I know exactly why those words aren’t there (I know a smartie like you didn’t just ‘forget’ them), and THAT is why I’m planning to vote for the Racoon,

  18. WMCB says:

    Milo gives a brief explanation of why he’s so provocative:

  19. Myiq2xu™ says:

  20. NBD says:

    Some good news: the odious and amazingly corrupt Linda Katehi is on her way out the door.

  21. WMCB says:

    The behavior of some young women after hitting college gender studies really is indicative of cult-type brainwashing. Sudden total change of personality, rabid dogmatism, cutting off ties with longtime family and friends, seeing perfectly normal people as “evil” and tools of evil, horrific fear of judgement/exclusion/shunning by the cult group. It’s creepy.

    • DandyTIger says:

      It’s very sad. Unfortunately the “regressive left” seems to be promoting this type of thing with their victim hierarchy based politics/religion and their left signaling behavior.

      • WMCB says:

        Recently read a good article by a woman who works in STEM on how this victim mentality is actually holding women back and is psychologically damaging:

        • leslie says:

          It didn’t just start. I recall a women’s study class that I took in grad school in 1990 that pronounced that all women suffer from a victimization of one form or another. It was taught by a nun. And was dizzying to hear that all my life I could have been blaming society for any and everything wrong in my life or in my personal decision making. It really IS a persuasive storyline. But that is just it. It is a story in many instances. This was in a highly touted Catholic university social work program.

  22. leslie says:

    Right this moment, Cruz is speaking. I have MSNBC on and I’m sure he is on the other stations as well. BUT I hear his drama filled pauses and I expect him to say “the end is near” every time. His speech patterns are driving me insane. That began the.night of the Iowa caucuses and it just grows like Topsy every time I hear him speak. 😡😡

    • Anthony says:

      He is truly the master of the pregnant pause… something he must have learned in his HS debate team. I can’t imagine listening to that shit for 4 or 8 years in a row. Besides that, he’s crazy.

      • DandyTIger says:

        Seriously, how can anyone like him and want him to be president? Boggles the mind. I mean Trump is a maniac, but he’s at least fun. And worst case might be horrible, but will at lest crack up the system. But Cruz is just horrendous. There is no best case for Cruz. There is only opening the hell mouth.🙂

      • CiscoKid says:

        Pregnant? I don’t know ’nuffin ’bout that.
        Ops. Excuse please.
        I shouldn’t feel good about this, its a mix of good with bad, real bad.
        A very good friend of mine just lost his job along with other employees.
        Jobs going to, yep, Mexico. He was offered his position in Mexico if he was willing to commute from El Paso, TX to the new factory near Juarez, MX.
        His home is currently in Houston, TX.
        So sell house, move to El Paso and go to Mexico every work day.
        16 years on the job and he was not going to endanger himself or his family.
        The good news is that he was a Bernie supporter, don’t ask, but now he’s a Trump supporter, along with his wife, both Father & Mother in-laws, and another mix of family members. They are all PO’ed big time.
        He’s a very sharp guy hopefully he’ll be able to land another job, hopefully.

    • CiscoKid says:

      Don’t know how I missed this.
      I’ve never really taken a good look at Melania till today.
      That dress and the way she carried herself.
      All smiles and a sorta subdued elegance, such a wonderful change from old grimace and frown Mooch. No potato sack dress’s for Melania.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Marla Maples is in this week’s People (Jennifer Anniston cover). Not a hit piece on DJT, she basically took blame for that marriage ending since she hated designer clothes and expensive jewelery and partying all the time😉 She’d rather be watching t.v. eating pizza in tshirts and jeans. She got a 2 million settlement which didn’t last long and had to sell off her personal stuff to make ends meet. Marla really came off as a bimbo without a clue, surprised the marriage lasted 5 years.

      • votermom says:

        How do you blow through $2mill?

        • Myiq2xu™ says:

          Hot chicks and cocaine is my favorite method.

        • jeffhas says:

          It’s either A LOT of pizza… or… Designer Dresses and Expensive Jewelry.

          Maybe she just wants everyone to ‘think’ she’s a down home girl…. I dunno

        • DeniseVB says:

          If that were invested properly, she could have probably lived a very comfortable lifestyle just on the interest. Or 100k/yr for 20 years ? I know the child was being well taken care of financially by Dad.

      • Dora says:

        Rather be watching TV? Oh please. I think that the time Trump came home early from a business trip and found a naked Marla romping around on the beach with a couple of the the Mar-a-Lago security guards, might have had something to do with their marriage breaking up. It just might have.

        • Somebody says:

          That would probably do it. I’d never heard that story.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Oh, do tell. 😉

        • Dora says:

          Did you ever hear about Marla Maples meeting Ivana in Colorado on the ski slopes and the two of them getting into a cat fight? The Daily News and NY Post carried all the Trump scandals. I thought they would go on forever.

          Trump seems like a happier man married to Malania. I believe their marriage has already lasted longer then his other two.

    CRUZ: “Well, listen it is not surprising that Donald Trump attacks Hillary for being a woman. Donald has a problem with strong women. This is not subtle, it’s not complicated, he has a real problem with strong women, it’s one of the reasons he cannot win a general election.”

  25. Dora says:

  26. DeniseVB says:

    Funny thing heard on the radio while running errands: Rush quoting some guy who said “Trump’s going to beat Hillary like a baby seal during the general”. What a visual.

    I bet her oppo team is pulling their hair out looking for dirt to combat DJT with.

    • CiscoKid says:

      Yep. 24/7, no doubt about it DVB.
      That’s the Democrats favorite weapon, along with deceit, distortion, innuendo, character assassination and good old fashion lies.

  27. DeniseVB says:

    If you’re concerned you may be drinking too much, just look to the Queen Mother (R.I.P), she’d drink any of us under the table😛

    Update from 49er. 36 days agree surgery my honey’s back home. Not healed, but healing. Long process w/6 month rehab. Still in pain and dealing with Nurse Ratched aka 49er now. Will lurk and comment here as time and patient permit.

  30. swanspirit says:

    Funny thing happened while I was cooking dinner. My next door neighbor came over to ask if I wanted some lattice, that he was getting rid of, because he is moving out in May. So I said absolutely thanks so much! But he slept the conversation going, so I invited him in, because he seemed as if he wanted to tell me something.
    Now this guy is a retired policeman and ex Marine. He has had Obama signs in his yard both elections. But he asked me who I was voting for , and when I said Trump, he looked so relieved and happy, and he said ; me too, and he went on to tell me why.
    He wants that wall built, because his daughter., who works as a waitress, has just had her pay greatly reduced because. “immigrant” waitresses are willing to work for much less. He wants the tax on what ” immigrants” send out of country. He looked so happy to be able to tell someone.
    And he also said, he just likes Trump.
    Best election ever.

  31. Myiq2xu™ says:

  32. Dora says:

    That was fast!

    Cruz says there never was an alliance, Kasich calls Cruz a liar and Carly says John should just drop out.

    Cruz denies Kasich alliance; Kasich camp “I can’t stand liars”

  33. DeniseVB says:

    Speaking of Andrea Tantaros, this is happening tonight😀

  34. DeniseVB says:

    I know Michelle Malkin isn’t a Trump fan, but she really has a problem with Ted picking Carly ….
