Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans, and people of the world: Thank you.
We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and to restore its promise for all of our people.
Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for years to come.
We will face challenges. We will confront hardships. But we will get the job done.
Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent.
Today's ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, or from one party to another -- but we are Read more
“I’m not a politician, and have never wanted to be one. But when I saw the trouble our country was in, I knew I couldn’t stand by and watch any longer. Our country has been so good to me, I love our country, I felt I had to act,” said Mr. Trump in his address.
“Change has to come from outside this broken system. The fact that the Washington establishment has tried so hard to stop our campaign is only more proof that our campaign represents the kind of change that only arrives once in a lifetime,” he continued.
“I am asking the American people to rise above the noise and the clutter of our broken politics, and to embrace that great faith and optimism that has always been the central ingredient in the American character. I am asking you to dream big.
“What follows is my 100-day action plan to Make America Great Again. It is a contract between Donald J. Trump and the Read more
Intelligent comments are welcome. Do your best.
About forty-five people gathered at the Cottage Cafe in Bethany Beach from 8-11 pm last night to watch the first 2016 presidential debate at a Sussex GOP sponsored event .
There was much discussion beforehand (even out-talking the talking heads). However, everyone paid serious attention during the course of the debate, occasionally responding to the high points, especially the one-liners.
Coincidentally, this was the 56th anniversary of the first Kennedy-Nixon Debate in 1960.
Intelligent comments, your spin and/or good comedy lines are welcome. Read more

PAUL MANAFORT STATEMENT ON DEBBIE WASSERMAN SCHULTZ
Debbie Wasserman Schultz resigned over her failure to secure the DNC’s email servers and the rigged system she set up with the Clinton campaign. Now Hillary Clinton should follow Wasserman Schultz’s lead and drop out over her failure to safeguard top secret, classified information both on her unauthorized home server and while traveling abroad. Wasserman Schultz’s emails only put the Democratic Party at risk, but Hillary Clinton’s emails put all of America at risk.

Donald J. Trump Republican Nomination Acceptance Speech
From TRUMP 2016:
BERNIE IS NOW OFFICIALLY PART OF A RIGGED SYSTEM
"Today, Bernie Sanders will be endorsing one of the most pro-war, pro-wall street, and pro-off shoring candidates in the history of the Democratic Party. The candidate who ran against special interests is endorsing the candidate who embodies special interests. The candidate who ran against TPP is endorsing the candidate who helped draft the TPP. The candidate who ran in opposition to globalization is running against the candidate who has led the push for globalization. The candidate who warned that open borders destroy the working class is endorsing the candidate with the most open borders policy in our history. The candidate who wants to reform H1-B visas is endorsing the candidate who supported lifting the caps on H1-B visas. The candidate who wants less war is endorsing the candidate who launched wars in Iraq and Read more
The Trump Campaign has canceled the trip to Miami, Florida today, due to the tragic events in Dallas last night
DONALD J. TRUMP STATEMENT
Last night’s horrific execution-style shootings of 12 Dallas law enforcement officers – five of whom were killed and seven wounded - is an attack on our country. It is a coordinated, premeditated assault on the men and women who keep us safe.
We must restore law and order. We must restore the confidence of our people to be safe and secure in their homes and on the street.
The senseless, tragic deaths of two motorists in Louisiana and Minnesota reminds us how much more needs to be done.
This morning I offer my thoughts and prayers for all of the victims’ families, and we pray for our brave police officers and first responders who risk their lives to protect us every single day.
Our nation has become too divided. Too many Americans Read more
DONALD J. TRUMP STATEMENT ON ATLANTIC CITY RECORD
I have built a tremendously successful business, which has created tens of thousands of jobs. Out of the hundreds of businesses I have owned over the decades, and hundreds of deals and transactions, I have used the chapter laws of our country in four instances, much as many of our country’s elite business people do (but nobody cares about). It is an effective and commonly used practice in business to use bankruptcy proceedings to restructure a business and ultimately save jobs. Nobody understands the economy like I do and no one, especially not Crooked Hillary Clinton, will do more for the economy than I will. I want to bring jobs back to America, while Hillary Clinton wants to get elected to enrich herself with power at the expense of the people. I created thousands of jobs and made a lot of money in Atlantic City, which was what, Read more
Donald Trump's Record In Atlantic City Is A Disaster, Literally

Donald Trump's Record In Atlantic City Is A Disaster, Literally
Hillary Clinton just delivered a speech in Atlantic City, New Jersey, making the case that Donald Trump is unfit to serve as president based on the wake of destruction his business dealings have left in the seaside town and for businesses and families across the country. In remarks in front of Boardwalk Hall, Clinton highlighted Trump's history in Atlantic City of multiple bankruptcies, stiffing contractors and spurring hundreds of job losses while pocketing cash for himself. She showed that Donald Trump's promise that he would "do for the country what I did for my business" is a clear threat, and a major reason why voters cannot allow him to endanger our economy from the White House.

WHAT IS HILLARY CLINTON HIDING?
As FBI Director James Comey let Clinton off the hook for her "extremely careless" actions, the fix was final. The Obama Administration's anointed successor has had an indictment removed from her path, and will now be able to glide to the rigged Democrat nomination. As we move toward November, the question now becomes, "what is Hillary hiding?"

DONALD J. TRUMP STATEMENT ON HILLARY CLINTON'S BAD JUDGMENT AND THE RIGGED SYSTEM
The FBI Director laid out today a detailed case of how Hillary Clinton compromised the safety of the American people by storing highly classified information on a private email server with no security. He confirmed that her email could easily have been hacked by hostile actors, and confirmed that those she emailed with were hacked.
Our adversaries almost certainly have a blackmail file on Hillary Clinton, and this fact alone disqualifies her from service.
It has also been revealed that Hillary Clinton lied when she said that she did not send classified information. The FBI Director confirmed that over 100 emails were deemed classified at the time they were sent, including emails classified as top secret.
On top of it all, Hillary Clinton’s lawyers wiped the servers clean Read more
DONALD J. TRUMP STATEMENT REGARDING BRITISH REFERENDUM ON E.U. MEMBERSHIP
The people of the United Kingdom have exercised the sacred right of all free peoples. They have declared their independence from the European Union and have voted to reassert control over their own politics, borders and economy. A Trump Administration pledges to strengthen our ties with a free and independent Britain, deepening our bonds in commerce, culture and mutual defense. The whole world is more peaceful and stable when our two countries – and our two peoples – are united together, as they will be under a Trump Administration.
Come November, the American people will have the chance to re-declare their independence. Americans will have a chance to vote for trade, immigration and foreign policies that put our citizens first. They will have the chance to reject today’s rule by the global elite, Read more
The TRUMP 2016 Campaign has released the following statement re: terrorism, immigration and national security:
Today, Donald J. Trump spoke at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire. During his speech, Mr. Trump took strong positions to protect and defend all Americans from hate and violence, to strengthen homeland security by renewing intelligence-gathering and supporting law enforcement, to conduct a full and long overdue security assessment and enact a common sense, mainstream immigration policy that promotes American values.

DONALD J. TRUMP has issued the following
STATEMENT REGARDING TRAGIC TERRORIST ATTACK IN ORLANDO, FLORIDA
Last night, our nation was attacked by a radical Islamic terrorist. It was the worst terrorist attack on our soil since 9/11, and the second of its kind in 6 months. My deepest sympathy and support goes out to the victims, the wounded, and their families.
In his remarks today, President Obama disgracefully refused to even say the words 'Radical Islam'. For that reason alone, he should step down. If Hillary Clinton, after this attack, still cannot say the two words 'Radical Islam' she should get out of this race for the Presidency.
If we do not get tough and smart real fast, we are not going to have a country anymore. Because our leaders are weak, I said this was going to happen – and it is only going to get worse. I am trying to save lives and prevent the next terrorist Read more
"My comments have been misconstrued."
Donald J. Trump has issued the following media release re: Trump University
It is unfortunate that my comments have been misconstrued as a categorical attack against people of Mexican heritage. I am friends with and employ thousands of people of Mexican and Hispanic descent. The American justice system relies on fair and impartial judges. All judges should be held to that standard. I do not feel that one’s heritage makes them incapable of being impartial, but, based on the rulings that I have received in the Trump University civil case, I feel justified in questioning whether I am receiving a fair trial.
Over the past few weeks, I have watched as the media has reported one inaccuracy after another concerning the ongoing litigation involving Trump University. There are several important facts the public should know and that the media has Read more

During his speech, for which he received many standing ovations, Mr. Trump took strong positions to reduce and eliminate all barriers to responsible energy production in order to create millions of new good-paying jobs, use energy production to rebuild our infrastructure and our inner cities and to reduce our debt. Mr. Trump outlined an "America First" agenda offering a significant contrast to Hillary Clinton's "Donor First" agenda that will make the special interests rich and continue to decimate the lower and middle classes.

Donald Trump’s Statement on West Virginia and Nebraska Victories
“It is a great honor to have won both West Virginia and Nebraska, especially by such massive margins. My time spent in both states was a wonderful and enlightening experience for me. I learned a lot, and that knowledge will be put to good use towards the creation of businesses, jobs, and the strengthening and revival of their economies. I look forward to returning to West Virginia and Nebraska soon, and hope to win both states in the general election. Likewise, my time spent last week with the great people of Oregon will hopefully lead to another victory next Tuesday.”

Trump Must Not Become President,’ Sanders Tells Rutgers Rally
PISCATAWAY, N.J. – U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders said on Sunday May 6 that he’s the candidate with the best chance to defeat Republican Donald Trump in the general election this fall.
“Donald Trump must not become president and I am happy to tell you that Donald Trump will not become president of the United States,” Sanders told more than 6,750 supporters at the Rutgers Athletic Center.
Sanders pointed to national and state polls consistently showing that he defeats the likely Republican Party presidential nominee by margins nearly twice as great as Hillary Clinton’s lead over Trump. “If Democrats want to have the strongest candidate against Donald Trump they should look at those polls,” Sanders said.
Sanders also detailed his differences with Clinton, including his Read more
Interest in Libertarian Party surges as alienated Republicans search for an alternative
In the aftermath of the sudden and unexpected withdrawal of both Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. John Kasich from the presidential race, effectively crushing a #NeverTrump movement working towards a contested convention, and handing Donald Trump the Republican nomination on a silver platter, an already divided Republican Party has begun tearing itself apart. Chaos reigns as influential members of the #NeverTrump faction decide whether their pledges to oppose Trump were merely a desperate bluff intended to steer voters towards Cruz, or, in fact, sincere pledges to oppose him, no matter what.
Talk of third-party alternatives from liberty-leaning pundits like Glenn Beck was to be expected, but even House Speaker Paul Ryan has stated that he’s “not ready to back Trump.” Of course, many Republicans have Read more

Donald J. Trump issued the following statement on Ted Cruz's Accusations re: the National Enquirer Story:
"I have no idea whether or not the cover story about Ted Cruz in this week's issue of the National Enquirer is true or not, but I had absolutely nothing to do with it, did not know about it, and have not, as yet, read it. Likewise, I have nothing to do with the National Enquirer and unlike Lyin’ Ted Cruz I do not surround myself with political hacks and henchman and then pretend total innocence. Ted Cruz’s problem with the National Enquirer is his and his alone, and while they were right about O.J. Simpson, John Edwards, and many others, I certainly hope they are not right about Lyin’ Ted Cruz. I look forward to spending the week in Wisconsin, winning the Republican nomination and ultimately the Presidency in order to Make America Great Again."

Sanders: Trump Should Condemn Violence
March 13, 2016
ST. LOUIS – Bernie Sanders on Sunday issued the following statement after Donald Trump said he would look into paying the legal expenses for a man accused of sucker punching a protester at a rally:
“Donald Trump should not be condoning violence by paying the legal fees of a supporter who viciously attacked a protester at one of his rallies. He should tone down his rhetoric and condemn the violence of some of his supporters.”
The radical terrorist organization "Moveon.org" founded and funded by George Soros, and now led by terrorist bomber and far-left anarchist criminal Bill Ayers, is attempting to sway a presidential election using this extremely Left-wing hate group.
Peaceful protests to make a point are one thing but violent attacks on a presidential candidate to stifle free speech and cause physical harm is quite another matter. With the Trump's presidential campaign taking on a life of its own, by becoming a national movement, extreme anger and hatred has erupted on the part of these left-wing hate groups.
In a typical fashion the far-left now attempts to strap the responsibility for their actions to Donald Trump's back, in an attempt to force him to carry the burden for their criminal acts. The worst part of this is that the other GOP presidential candidates are also falsely blaming Trump for the Read more
