    Perhaps the General’s mission might be helping turn the Republicans, nationally, into something other than a screaming bag of drowning cats like it is now. It pays to be a winner, as Hillary Clinton can tell you time and again as she takes the oath of office and then packs the Supreme Court. And that’s just warming up.

    What will it be Republicans? No White House forever, forever a regional party, only capable of pulling the handbrake on Big Government, forever and ever and ever?

        ” the older are going for Hillary,”

        And according to a newly released Harvard Univ. Institute of Politics poll, Clinton is crushing Trump among millennials, even tracking ahead of Obama’s overwhelming victory among young voters in 2012.

        You mean these Harvard folks?

        Harvard men’s soccer players gave female players sexually explicit ratings

    Poll after the OWH endorsement of Hillary. Yeow.

    I still think Hillary loses to Trump by 20 points in NE.

    And when does Jane Kleeb denounce the destruction of personal property and other criminal activity in conjunction with DAPL?

      • Bluejay says:

        If the unindicted felon Hillary wins, then we are all in big trouble. What does the King of Morocco get for his $12m? And all of the others?

      • Anonymous says:

        Its no longer “if” its “when.” The Republicans didn’t shoot themselves in their feet, the collectively put that gun in their mouths and fired repeatedly. Moroccan millions? Any minor influence that may or may not have is due to Republican failure to execute a winning national campaign. It. Pays. To. Be. A. Winner. You’d think Republicans would know that. Well apparently not.

    A little insight into the image of that group supporting Don Bacon – as retweeted by Sweeper.

    It’s an image retweeted from Justin Carrizales. Creighton University has denied, on two occasions, Justin Carrizales’ application to start a chapter of the conservative organization Turning Point USA. at Creighton University.

    At Drake University, Turning Point was denied recognition as an official student organization based on student senate concerns that the organization has “a hateful record,” “aggressive marketing” and “an unethical privacy concern.”

    Northwestern University has also denied recognition of a student chapter of Turning Point USA.

    Hagerstown Community College (MD) denied approval of a college chapter of Turning Point USA.

    How does the old axiom go –
    A man is judged by the company he keeps.

    And now it appears, a vote for Hillary is a vote for the Hungarian. Do we really want Soros running the country? The Russians are much preferable:)

    Univ. of Northern Colorado students forced to use ‘mandatory’ gender-neutral language

    And colleges are worried about such groups as Turning point? And I don’t even know who they are, nor do I care.
