A Matter of Trends, Numbers and Momentum

By Craig Andresen Right Side Patriots http://www.americanpbn.com/

Ted Cruz won two states in the March 5th showdowns. Donald Trump won two states in the March 5th showddel 1owns. Trump’s camp is happy to say they won as many states last Saturday as did Cruz but that doesn’t really tell the whole story, does it?

Cruz won 68 delegates last Saturday. Trump only won 53 delegates that night and that’s a lot more telling than the two to two tie isn’t it?

But even that doesn’t tell the full story.

Trump under-performed in Louisiana. In polls leading up to that state’s primary, Trump held a double digit lead. It was supposed to be an easy win for Trump and while he did win that state…he only beat Cruz by less than four points. It was close. It was a whole lot closer than Trump wanted it to be and a whole lot closer than Trump thought it would be.

Trump also won Kentucky, but in polls there, before the March 5th caucus, Trump also enjoyed a double digit lead over Ted Cruz by a margin of 35-15 according to RealClear Politics. That was a 20 point lead but on caucus night, Trump barely managed to win by 35.9 to Cruz’s 31.6…a difference of only 4.3 percent.

Interesting, but there’s more to be told before we can accurately see the big picture here.

Obamacare’s Planned Failure Almost Complete

By Craig Andresen Right Side Patriots http://www.americanpbn.com/

oc 1While everybody remains laser-focused on the 2016 candidates, one of the major issues of this election is, by and large, going unnoticed or drastically under reported…Obamacare.

Last week, Mandy Cohen, a senior official in the Obama regime’s Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, stonewalled a congressional committee regarding the future of Obamacare’s 11 remaining co-ops but she did admit one thing…

That those 11 of the original 23 co-ops are in big trouble financially.

How deep is the hole in which they currently find themselves?

Deep. Very, VERY deep.

In fact, 8 of the 11 could well go under by the end of this year and each of those 8 are now facing either “federal enhanced oversight,” or are currently operating under a “federal “corrective action plan.”

But there’s more…plenty more…

Trump – All Sound Bite and No Substance

By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots on americanpbn.com

oht 1There can be no two people happier about Donald Trump’s empty rhetoric this week than Obama and Hillary Clinton and while Trump continues to grin like the cat that swallowed the media canary, people who should care about real issues are being bamboozled.

For once, Obama doesn’t even have to concoct a distraction…Trump is handling that for him.

Was Trump right to state that we should put a temporary ban on Muslim immigration and employ profiling to minimize future jihadis entering our nation?

Yes, but he missed the key reason why…that being that we are engaged in a war against an ideology and not a religion as Islam is the former and not the latter but Trump has not explained himself and why should he? His Trumpers are eating it up and the media is talking about nothing else.

There’s a reason for that and I suspect Trump has been paying a staff to do nothing but look at social media to discern what Conservatives are calling for. Notice how Trump has yet to put forth an original idea. He takes whatever is the hot-button topic of the week and puffs himself up over it spewing rhetoric with no substance behind it.

Build a wall…make Mexico pay for it.

How?

Weekend Edition: Benghazi – The War on Truth

Between the Benghazi attacks on 9/11/2012 and the 2012 election…Obama, the Liar in Chief, touted the demise of al Qaeda 37 times.

“A day after 9/11, we are reminded that a new tower rises above the New York skyline, but AL QAEDA IS ON THE PATH TO DEFEAT and bin Laden is dead.”

That’s what the LIAR told his Kool Aid drinking faithful in Las Vegas the morning after the attacks.

“Four years ago, I promised to end the war in Iraq — and we did. I said we’d wind down the war in Afghanistan — and we are. And while a new tower rises above the New York skyline, AL QAEDA IS ON A PATH TO DEFEAT, and Osama bin Laden is dead.”

“AL QAEDA IS ON THE RUN and Osama bin Laden is no more.”

“I ended the war in Iraq, as I promised. We are transitioning out of Afghanistan. We have gone after the terrorists who actually attacked us 9/11 AND DECIMATED AL QAEDA.”

“Thanks to sacrifice and service of our brave men and women in uniform, the war in Iraq is over, the war in Afghanistan is winding down, AL QAEDA HAS BEEN DECIMATED, Osama bin Laden is dead.”

Those are just some of the quotes. There were several variations but…According to the LIAR, Obama, al Qaeda was finished…Thanks to HIM.

Yesterday it was announced that…

ALL OF OUR EMBASSIES IN ARAB COUNTRIES WERE TO CLOSE DUE TO AN UNSPECIFIED…

AL QAEDA THREAT!!!!!

Al Qaeda, as it turns out, was never on the run, never on the path to defeat and most clearly, had never been decimated.

Oh…WE, as CONSERVATIVES knew that all along but, it just didn’t fit into the Dictator’s reelection plans.

He lied.

Friday Fume

I can’t believe we made it all the way through another week.

If socialists launched an insanity rocket from atop their own mountain of stupidity…It still wouldn’t reach the heights of moronic behavior they’re reaching.

I can’t even BEGIN to get into ALL of it from this week so…I’ve hand-picked 4 issues from the always exploding stack.

My friends and fellow Patriots…

Sometimes…Ya just gotta laugh. Today IS Friday and…

I’m fuming.

Let’s start things off in Ipswitch.

That’s where the high school principal has decided to DO AWAY WITH HONORS NIGHT BECAUSE…

THE KIDS WHO RIDE THE SHORT BUS MIGHT HAVE THEIR FEELINGS HURT!!!

The kids who have worked their adolescent BUTTS off…TAKING CALCULUS…ANATOMY…PHYSICS AND COLLEGE LEVEL MANDARIN CHINESE LANGUAGE COURSES  SO THEY CAN GROW UP TO GET GOVERNMENT JOBS…BEGGING FOR MONEY…AREN’T GOING TO BE RECOGNIZED FOR MAKING THE HONOR ROLL BECAUSE…

REMEDIAL READER, MOUTH BREATHING, SHOP CLASS SAND BAGGING, 5TH YEAR SOPHOMORES MIGHT GET THEIR “EVERYBODY GETS A TROPHY JUST FOR SHOWING UP” PANTIES IN A BUNCH????

Yep, that’s about the size of it.
