President-Elect Donald J. Trump Statement re: Death of Fidel Castro
"Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades. Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights.
"While Cuba remains a totalitarian island, it is my hope that today marks a move away from the horrors endured for too long, and toward a future in which the wonderful Cuban people finally live in the freedom they so richly deserve.
"Though the tragedies, deaths and pain caused by Fidel Castro cannot be erased, our administration will do all it can to ensure the Cuban people can finally begin their journey toward prosperity and liberty. I join the many Cuban Americans who supported me so greatly in the presidential campaign, including the Brigade 2506 Veterans Association Read more
"Make America great Again." Good for Americans. Good for the world!
Trump's new American Nationalist Movement reminds a cowed American public of their "God given" rights, guaranteed by the Constitution and secured by a strong military to ensure America's place as global leader of the world's human rights.
In perfect elections, the elected officials are a reflection of the people's will, however in today's American election system, controlled by a two-party manage-a-trois waltz with the American voter, this is no longer true. This system does not, and absolutely has not reflected the will of anyone but that of the political pseudo-elites. Read more

As the " winner-take-all" Indiana Primary is underway and the candidates are naturally exhausted from the rough and tumble of presidential campaign politics, some are are beginning to show signs of strain. As he "stares at the abyss", Ted Cruz's sputtering remarks about excessive media coverage for Donald Trump and "the Donald TRUMP Network are particularly indicative. It may be that the Trump insurgence, clearly shaking up the GOP establishment, is simply viewed as more "newsworthy" by managing editors. Trump's comment linking Cruz's father to Lee Harvey Oswald before he was shot also raised more than a few eyebrows.
Psychologically, the pivotal GOP Primary nears a critical tipping point. An overwhelming TRUMP victory would (barring political chicanery at the convention) fatally wound the "STOP Trump" movement and give him the needed momentum to Read more
New Folk Hero And Political Savior
Everyone I know, whether they support "The Donald" or not, would agree that he is a persuasive successful businessman, and that his charismatic convincing manner of campaigning has won the support of a wide range of political ideologists.
Trump offers a very important ingredient to the recently oppressed American citizenry. "HOPE" Hope, once given and accepted, gains the complete loyalty of a wide range of beliefs. Trump is not a master manipulator as many think, instead he totally believes that, because of his proven ability to lead the pack, he can perform and deliver what he has said he can, and the people believe him. There is much to be said about a person who will not be defeated, that people admire whether you agree with him or not.
One of the many things that makes Trump successful, even when he appears to be losing is the fact that Read more

Republican Presidential Primary Candidate, Donald J. Trump has issued the following statement re: abortion:
If Congress were to pass legislation making abortion illegal and the federal courts upheld this legislation, or any state were permitted to ban abortion under state and federal law, the doctor or any other person performing this illegal act upon a woman would be held legally responsible, not the woman. The woman is a victim in this case as is the life in her womb. My position has not changed – like Ronald Reagan, I am pro-life with exceptions.
Sanders Statement on Donald Trump
March 12, 2016
CHICAGO – U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders issued the following statement today on disturbances of Donald Trump rallies:
“As is the case virtually every day, Donald Trump is showing the American people that he is a pathological liar. Obviously, while I appreciate that we had supporters at Trump’s rally in Chicago, our campaign did not organize the protests.
“What caused the protests at Trump’s rally is a candidate that has promoted hatred and division against Latinos, Muslims, women, and people with disabilities, and his birther attacks against the legitimacy of President Obama.
“What caused the violence at Trump’s rally is a campaign whose words and actions have encouraged it on the part of his supporters . He recently said of a protester, ‘I want to punch him in the face.’ Another time Read more
Donald J. Trump issued the following statement today on a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies, based on U.S. Census Bureau Data, showing record immigration growth in the United States:
"Record rates of immigration have produced lower wages and higher unemployment for U.S. workers. Pew polling shows 83 percent of all voters - Democrats, Republicans and Independents - think immigration should be frozen or reduced. The biggest beneficiaries of allowing fewer foreign workers into our country would be minority workers, including all immigrants now living here, who are competing for jobs, benefits and community resources against record waves of foreign workers. Limiting job competition would reopen pathways to middle-class stability and shrink welfare rolls. In addition, it would relieve overcrowding in our schools and hospitals that afflict our Read more

CNN leads On Wednesday's debate with an attempt to pit all candidates against Trump Backfires And Brings Candidates Closer Together
It appeared to many that the CNN debate was being engineered to divide the GOP, instead of discussing important issues that concern America and her future. I agree with this view of many pundits who also viewed the unbelievably long debate.
As it turns out, during some heated exchanges, there was no animosity with the top eleven candidates, and important national and geopolitical subjects were discussed at the lengthy debate of over three hours. At times there seemed almost a camaraderie among the presidential hopefuls. A new respect for one-another was born out of the necessity for one of them to serve as president, thus ending an eight-year dictatorial "executive order" rule.
A genuine camaraderie apparently was born between Trump and popular candidate Read more
