After making the final decision to skip the GOP debate this week, and disregard Megyn Kelly, Trump opted to hold a fundraiser for our veterans instead. Trump began the donations with a cool $1M out of his own pocket. The cause is nothing short of admirable, but there’s a short list of reasons to skip the debate this week.

For some, it’s a big problem that Trump is “Scared” of FOX journalist, Megyn Kelly, and it seemed fearful to walk away from the debate. Consequently, some Republicans fear that if he can’t confront or handle Megyn Kelly, how could he handle ISIS, China, and forgein affairs as POTUS?

On the other hand, it’s not a secret that Trump isn’t a fan of the media. By skipping the debate, he takes control of his own headlines by doing something that benefits the brave individuals who are the backbone of this homeland.

In the 2012 election, it was super discouraging to hear so much about social issues, over economic issues and the treatment of our veterans. I’ll never be convinced that the legalization of gay marriage is more important that taking care of the people who sacrificed their lives to protect this country. So in hopes that the real reason for skipping the debate this week was really for the veterans, Trump can do no wrong. There’s nothing bad to say about someone who wants to lead this country who is putting the very people who defend it first.

Mitt Romney’s fundraising for the last three months has him dominating his rivals. According to the Washington Post, Romney has raised $18.25 million, a sum vastly higher than Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Jon Huntsman, and Herman Cain. In fact, Romney raised nearly $3 million more than those four combined.

On the other hand, Newt Gingrich, who has seen his campaign lose its steering wheel and its engine in the last couple of months, brought in only $2 million, and, according to Politico, has only $225,000 in the bank and is approximately $1 million in debt.

“Romney and Gingrich” is most certainly a tale of two candidates going in very opposite directions.

An old proverb regards truth as the first casualty of war. Logically, for truth to become war’s casualty it must be present to begin with. War is then a level above politics, at least in the way Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) practices the craft. 

It’s no surprise to find Democrats spinning the standoff between Wisconsin’s Senate Republicans and public employee unionists. But Rep. Israel’s spin is so unbelievable that he has abused even the politician’s privilege of dancing around the truth. He sounds like a cheating child who’s tossing a tantrum because his playmates won’t play fair.  Read more

I was up way too late last night checking my twitter and facebook to see who loved me one last time when I came across an interesting and stunning bit of political news.

Remember last summer when our dear Nancy Pelosi declared that Tea Party goers were “Astroturf” and disingenuous? I wonder if she would be willing to eat her words today after I read the following story.

Apparently some of the people proclaiming to be anti-Tea Party activists, are really laundering union money thru a shell company and several fake 527 groups run by two prominent DC lawyers. Sadly, this is not illegal. Read more
