    Both parties, the Libtard DemonRats and the Republitard GOPe RINOs.

      Yeah, they are working as one.

    Travis was the commander at the Alamo. Even someone from Taxsachusetts should be able to figure that out.

    I would have implied traitors rather than clowns, but some think that’s to harsh.

    • CitizenOutkast

      No, that’s not too harsh. That’s exactly what they are. The right makes the mistake in calling the GOP clowns, cowards, or idiots. They are none of the above. They are intelligent, deceitful traitors that have make a conscious decision to screw over their base of supporters to gain and keep personal power for themselves. They know the best way to do this is to give into the Democrats and Obama every chance they get, and so that is what they have done.
      The problem is, the right is so full of morons that even after getting repeatedly stabbed in the back, they keep playing the game under the GOP’s rules. “You better vote for us or the Democrats will win” is their cry, and the right lines up to do as they’re told and vote for whatever scum has a “R” after his name. If the right were intelligent, they’d have dumped the GOP long ago by mass voting a third party candidate in. After all, it’s not like having the GOP win has made any difference in how Washington runs. People may as well have let Democrats win, in name of course, since the spirit of the Democrats HAS won with the GOP in charge.

      • B Woodman

        Change GOP to => GOPe and you’ll have it spot on.

      • GWB

        “They are intelligent, deceitful traitors that have make a conscious decision to screw over their base of supporters to gain and keep personal power for themselves.”
        No, it’s worse. They’ve made the decision to screw over all free citizens, not just their base.
        They have developed into a political aristocracy – a class bred or educated to be those-who-rule. It is incompatible with freedom, and freedom will yield to it.
        There is only one way to eradicate it. And it will not go quietly.

  • JTC

    Trump seems more lion-tamer than ringleader right now…cracking that whip, making them jump through hoops, delighting the crowd. He better be careful though, those lions might be toothless but they could still gang up and gum him to death; even those clowns could join in…(aka “brokered convention”).

  • H_B

    Trump is motoring toward the nomination right now, but keep in mind that even if he wins, the fight doesn’t end. The self-styled Elites will have to show that electing Trump was a “bad idea” if he wins the presidency – the same way they repeatedly tried to torpedo Reagan using congress. (Denying him authorization to react to the Lebanon marine barracks bombing (which is why he didn’t bother to ask about anymore when things went down in Libya), the bait-and-switch of the first Amnesty and then never bothering to follow up and revise immigration policy as they’d promised they would, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.) It will be a continual fight for the next five years.

    • RooftopVoter

      I would say you are right with one difference. Reagan was a gentleman even when they were slitting him ear to ear.

      Trump won’t stand for it. I keep hearing Trump is no Reagan, and I say thank the Lord, because we need someone with Reagan’s appeal, and the attitude of a Lower South Side street fighter.

      Treason can’t be talked down, you gotta shiv it.

    Reminds me of asshats about to lose their sinecures. The budget approval was the last straw. They didn’t even phone it in. Just did everything that the ruling class wanted.

    I’m for Ted as he has a plan for the dismantle that makes sense. winDsock doesn’t but he has the crowd. IF HE IS SMART ENOUGH TO ENLIST Ted TO ASSIST then maybe the damage done can be arrested and corrected.

    I expect a brokered convention, Hillary to be indicted, Biden Warren to waltz in and We the People to be screwed into the ground. This maybe the biggest fall of our discontent.

    • If Trump takes Cruz for VP, there we go.

      • RooftopVoter

        That’s the preferred solution. We get 4 or 8 years of Trump kicking tail and taking names, and then 8 more years of solid Constitutional oversight.

        Cruz can teach Trump the Constitution, and Trump can teach Cruz how to be likable.

        Win/Win for all sides involved ( well, except the Statists)

        As for a brokered Convention, bring it on, they try that we take them out.

        • Old Codger

          Tsk, tsk, tsk What ARE you smoking, RV. Trump will be just as much a disaster in office as either Hildabeast or “the Bern”.

          I feel like a man standing on a bluff watching two trains, both running flat out and on the same track, approaching each other around a blind curve. I am powerless to do anything to avert the coming disaster. And my family is on one of the trains!

          • JTC

            Hope your family is on the Trump train. Yes, there will be a cataclysmic collision, but the TT is the only one that will get your folks to where they need to go.

            See the essay I reprinted at 10:36 below to see why I think that is.

    • H_B

      If there’s a brokered convention, the Republican Party dies as a going concern, just like the Whig party they replaced (see my 4:52 comment in: http://www.daybydaycartoon.com/comic/because-i-dont-need-to-draw-a-picture/).

      If we get a Biden/Warren administration we’ll have a civil war. Political Correctness (see also Chris Rock’s racist rants at the Oscars) and cencorship (see also Facebook and Twitter’s silencing of conservative opinions) have taken our Soap Box away for decades. Hillary Clinton is the poster child for our Jury Box being rendered useless. Open Border Amnesty results in the Ballot Box being diluted into irrelevancy. If they go ahead and reach for the Cartridge Box, all that’s left is fight.

  • capn

    I’m pretty sure that the largest percentage of the Republican leaning voters can also see this total Charlie-Foxtrot. They are not even trying to hide their perfidy.
    Unfortunately even if the largest percentage of the Republican leaning voters vote in a non-establishment Prez the system won’t change until all of the crooks and liars are removed by their own voting publics. (NOTE: This is currently scheduled for the 12th of never)
    (You will notice that I am NOT holding my breath waiting for this occurrence to transpire?)

    • I just did copy/paste with mine.

  • I loathe clowns, but sadly, they have been in elected office for far too long. Congressional term limits, a repeal of the 17th Amendment, and a tightening of certain voting laws to prevent cheating might help shut down the circus.

    Leaning toward the future, *if* it all were to boil down to Trump vs Clinton, I fully expect Chris to have a LOT of Alien inspired cartoons as 2016 would likely devolve into Alien vs Predator. No matter who wins, we lose.

    There is a sweet seduction to the idea of “letting it all burn” and sitting out the general election, but I refuse to be a bystander to Mrs. Clinton putting a hand on a bible and becoming POTUS #45. There is too much at stake to retain a mad-on because one’s candidate of choice didn’t secure the nomination.

    I have ZERO interest in hastening the day in which a potential new civil war breaks out within the US because a potential future federal gun grab or trampling of civil rights. Statists from both sides of the political aisle will eventual go for broke, but our mortal enemies beyond our borders will likely strike first, and I shudder to think of what will happen if TSHTF during a domestic food fight.

    I truly hope and pray that Cruz pulls out a Super Tuesday miracle, but I am prepared to hold my nose to support the (possibly last) GOP nominee in November, if only to deny the Democrats the opportunity to deeply politicize the Supreme Court, further weaponize the Federal agencies, and take the final steps to trash the country as it was originally founded.

    Trump has more issues than a magazine stand (IMHO), but at least he’ll head for the abyss at 55 mph (a speed we can still slow down further in order to turn the country around while there is still some road in which to do so), versus the needle being pinned by a hell-bent Clinton.

    Hopefully, some of that made sense. Chris’ current strip sure did.

    • Old Codger

      Don’t you get it, itzWicks? Laws don’t matter! The ruling class don’t bother to obey them. Hell! NObody obeys ANY unless it is convenient (or at least not TOO INconvenient). For the ruling class virtually any law which might limit their power is inconvenient.

  • Remember, SCOTUS is there for life, or voluntary retirement. *AHEM*

  • NotYetInACamp

    Sometime before the first debate I shut up the birthright citizenship people on the web by explaining the law to them that they had tried to use to shut me up. What they thought was the law did not mean what they thought it did. I then later heard Trump use many of the exact words and ideas that I had used in my victory over them when I heard portions of the first debate the day after the debate ( I live outside of basic contact). He was attacked viciously, yet, as when I shut them up, the American people agreed, AND, the law was correct as he had stated it. The press had no way of countering his argument, as he had stated law as it exists in the USA.
    Ideas matter.
    Trump has since gone on to take so many policy statement and analysis of problems that I believe should be the approach to these matters that I can see no other candidate that would have as good effect on this nation as any other candidate,even other candidates with good ideas.
    If Trump gets even some of those ideas passed in the Congress, we will be a better nation.
    If he ends the evil that Obama and those part of the intenmtional destruction of the USA (Fundamental transformation entails destruction of that which exists as Obama promised) then we will be doing better.
    If Trump enables good people to take control in federal agencies and the FBI and the border patrol (Homeland Security) we will be headed in a better direction.
    If Trump stops the ending of our sovereignty by rejecting the TPP and other ‘deals’, then we will be better off.
    Trump appears to be a nationalist. I agree with our nation continuing. Obama has been moving to end our nation by transforming it.
    Ending the horror and war crimes that Obama and Hillary have committed in the Middle East and North Africa with the help of the Globalists in charge of the EU and Soros will be good. The mass of Muslims that Obama has caused to be sent into Europe by that destruction of nations (all in the name of some alleged “good” has been catastrophic.) would be a Godsend to Europe (and the USA) and the survival of Western Civilization may be back on the table. It is that serious.
    If Trump survives the campaign and presidency and achieves some of these goals and policies that he is stated including freeing the power of our people to produce (rather than be dependent welfare recipients), then we have hope.
    Talking with a vet I met yesterday, if the USA stops chopping up our military on mainly useless policies and war actions, and uses it as intended, then we will be a stronger nation. Obama has churned the military unlike anyone should ever do to people. Our military is in almost open revolt to what Obama has been ordering. That even after he has fired hundreds of officers.
    I have stated that we are at war many times to people. We are. Every means must be used. Talking is better than bullets. Voting is better than bullets. Gathered confrontation is better than bullets. The uprising against Great Britain was mainly talk attempting to get results for decades. Then slowly the confrontations began. Votes are bullets to those now in control. We need to do so on more levels than just the president. We need to elect people of good ideas all across the country. Most state legislatures are now conservative, populist, nationalists, or Republican. Eric Cantor was removed by his district standing up and defeating all of the harsh aggressive tactics and money used to try to keep him in office. Conservatives, libertarians, populists, nationalists, and other good people need to be elected this election cycle or the next to make this a massive movement rather than just a president level movement. Act locally. Cover your area of operation, and that includes local politics.
    And right now, that’s about all I have to say. I have some lawn that needs mowing. ( 🙂 Life can be like a box of chocolates. I never know what I am going to get.)

    • Jorge_Banner

      Talking may be better than bullets . . . sometimes . . . still the Carthaginians must have had some kind of Senate or something and I bet they talked and talked . . . and while you are talking the Romans come and your civilization ends. I’m not sure we can save what’s left and give ourselves a future in freedom, I’m rather pessimistic. But I’m sure of this: there’s a point behind which all efforts are useless, even bullets.

      I bet some South Vietnamese kept on fighting after the last helicopter left. When it’s over, it’s over.

      This won’t be solved by voting. And it won’t be solved by talking. And there will come a point, if it hasn’t come yet, where it won’t be solved no matter how many do what in, by then, useless panic.

I am amazed at how people can limit their comments. 🙂

  • Bill G

    Trump’s life history is that of a liberal. I like most of what he’s saying; I just don’t trust that he’d operate that way in office.
    An interesting analysis I read (yesterday?) made the point that Donald Trump is a salesman and right now he’s selling himself to voters. As such, he is now, in Primary Season, the most conservative you will ever see him. That once the general election comes he will move toward the center to sell himself to more voters and once in office he will be able to revert to his natural self.

    • Old Codger

      I wonder how you Trump supporters think he’s going to have time to do his job as POTUS and still run Trump Enterprises?

        Got a couple of competent kids.

    • Chris Muir

      This,too!

    • H_B

      It’s a matter of alternatives. Let’s suppose that Trump is elected, he reverses himself on immigration, he bans handguns and “assault rifles”, he leaves Common Core alone, passes TPP, and dooms himself to a single term as a man hated by the voters from both parties. If he did all of that…how would he be any different from Jeb, Kasich, or Rubio??

      Furthermore, regardless of whether he sticks to his campaign claims or not, we still get the effect he is already producing: the evisceration of the Politically Correct silencing of opinions in this country. That alone, in-and-of-itself, is worth something.

      I’ll say it again: I don’t like Trump, but I loooove what he’s doing to the powers-that-be.

      • RegT

        Excellent point.
        Let’s not reward the GOPe by electing one of them. I’d rather vote for Bernie than a traitor.

    I’m not sure Trump even wants to be prez. He is not stupid and knows selling the sizzle would not hold up for 4-8 years. He is having loads of fun rousing the rabble and his new connections in the GOP will be great for future business. Take a subtle dive in the general election and the Clintons will be appropriately grateful too.

  • JTC

    Here’s an essay by writer Mychal Massie that might explain the phenomenon and appeal of Trump as well as anything I’ve seen, as well as why “parties” and the entrenched establishment that control them are quaking in their boots. TL;DR maybe, but worth it I think.

    “TRUMP IS NOT A CONSERVATIVE, HE’S A PRAGMATISt.

    We recently enjoyed a belated holiday dinner with friends at the home of other friends. The dinner conversation was jocund, ranging from discussions about antique glass and china to theology and politics. At one point reference was made to Donald Trump being a conservative to which I responded that Trump is not a conservative.

    I said that I neither view nor do I believe Trump views himself as a conservative. I stated it was my opinion that Trump is a pragmatist. He sees a problem and understands it must be fixed. He doesn’t see the problem as liberal or conservative, he sees it only as a problem. That is a quality that should be admired and applauded, not condemned. But I get ahead of myself.

    Viewing problems from a liberal perspective has resulted in the creation of more problems, more entitlement programs, more victims, more government, more political correctness, and more attacks on the working class in all economic strata.

    Viewing things according to the so-called Republican conservative perspective has brought continued spending, globalism to the detriment of American interests and well being, denial of what the real problems are, weak, ineffective, milquetoast, leadership that amounts to Barney Fife Deputy Sheriff appeasement oriented and afraid of its own shadow. In brief, it has brought liberal ideology with a pachyderm as a mascot juxtaposed to the ass of the Democrat Party.

    Immigration isn’t a Republican problem; it isn’t a liberal problem; it is a problem that threatens the very fabric and infrastructure of America. It demands a pragmatic approach not an approach that is intended to appease one group or another.

    The impending collapse of the economy isn’t a liberal or conservative problem it is an American problem. That said, until it is viewed as a problem that demands a common sense approach to resolution, it will never be fixed because the Democrats and Republicans know only one way to fix things and the longevity of their impracticality has proven to have no lasting effect. Successful businessmen like Donald Trump find ways to make things work, they do not promise to accommodate.

    Trump uniquely understands that China’s manipulation of currency is not a Republican problem or a Democrat problem. It is a problem that threatens our financial stability and he understands the proper balance needed to fix it. Here again successful businessmen like Trump who have weathered the changing tides of economic reality understand what is necessary to make business work and they, unlike both sides of the political aisle, know that if something doesn’t work you don’t continue trying to make it work hoping that at some point it will.

    As a pragmatist Donald Trump hasn’t made wild pie-in-the-sky promises of a cell phone in every pocket, free college tuition, and a $15 hour minimum wage for working the drive-through a Carl’s Hamburgers.

    I argue that America needs pragmatists because pragmatists see a problem and find ways to fix them. They do not see a problem and compound it by creating more problems.

    You may not like Donald Trump but I suspect that the reason people do not like him is because: 1) he is antithetical to the good old boy method of brokering backroom deals that fatten the coffers of politicians; 2) they are unaccustomed to hearing a candidate speak who is unencumbered by the financial shackles of those who own them vis-a-vis donations; 3) he is someone who is free of idiomatic political ideology; and 4) he is someone who understands that it takes more than hollow promises and political correctness to make America great again.

    Listening to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders talk about fixing America is like listening to two lunatics trying to out crazy one another. Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio are owned lock, stock, and barrel by the bankers, corporations, and big dollar donors funding their campaigns. Bush can deny it but common sense tells anyone willing to face facts that people don’t give tens of millions without expecting something in return.

    We have had Democrats and Republican ideologues and what has it brought us? Are we better off today or worst off? Has it happened overnight or has it been a steady decline brought on by both parties?

    I submit that a pragmatist might be just what America needs right now. And as I said earlier, a pragmatist sees a problem and understands that the solution to fix same is not about a party, but a willingness and boldness to get it done.”

    Wish I’d written that. Lots of folks think a third party is needed to address and encompass the needs of middle America. So, the “Prag Party”? Sounds about right to me.

  • Spin Drift

    My only comment on pragmatism is that the Nazi’s had a “Jewish” problem. Their solution was very pragmatic. A “Constitutional Conservative” might have come up with a different solution to the “Jewish” problem.

    I like Ted, he believes in individual rights and states rights (9th and 10th) before enabling the national governmental leviathan to crush all in it’s path. I don’t know what winDsock would do as effing over a little old lady with eminent domain is in his wheelhouse. The one thing I do see is Congress coalescing to stop winDsock more effectively that they ever did to stop the zero.

    Buckle up boys and girls it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

    • JTC

      It is standard practice of commenters much lesser than you to slap the Nazi label on anything they don’t like or understand. I would not have expected that from you.

      I’ve said for months that I think Trump will choose to be a four-year prez and that Cruz would be my choice for the eight years thereafter. But Ted has zero chance at the nomination and even less chance against the Beast, so that does make him irrelevant to the conversation doesn’t it?

      There can be no doubt that the pragmatic approach outlined in that essay is what is required to change the course of this ship of state; that is what Trump is capable of. And during that course change it could very well be that his second in command can learn and acquire the skillsets necessary to function and pursue his laudable goals and ideals.

      This is not an either/or situation, it is both…a team genuinely capable of doing what needs to be done and give the Republic a chance to save itself.

      Cruz/? ’20

      • Spin Drift

        JTC, I just worry that old winDsock will go which ever way the wind is blowing. He’s a business man first so pragmatism is the name of the game to be successful. Go along to get along, cut a deal, they are just collateral damage, no harm no foul, just following orders. This is the scary part. I’m tired of giving the GOPe the tools and then being backstabbed.

        winDsock is a positional republican, hells bells he even talked of running for President as a Democrat. Who knows where he will end up. As an historical aside, wasn’t Alf Landon a democrat running for the republicans in ’36?

        winDsock reminds me of the women and the snake crossing a river. The snake just did what snakes do to their both’s demise. winDsock speaks to our baser instincts but I’d rather he draw counsel from our better angels.

      A Constitutional Conservative wouldn’t have thought he HAD a Jewish problem. Only fools ever think there’s a “Jewish problem” Jews are the most capable people on Earth. Probably due to natural selection. The dim witted and slow died a long time ago. The West owes the Jews a LOT. Just don’t listen to the marxist ones.

    Wow. Nasty new attack ad just now during local Tampa teevee news…Trump shown in grainy black&white, vague old rags about bankruptcy, liability, eminent domain, same old lib harping.

    But. This is not a tool of the beast or the bern…it’s internecine warfare backed by his own damn party; the Conservative Solutions Pac, National Review, and no doubt the three clowns depicted in this toon.

    They made Trump sign a loyalty pledge, but there’s no loyalty to him, and fuck what the people say. This has to be unprecedented, I know I’ve never seen it. Those evil backstabbing self-interested thugs just made up my mind for sure, and I’m betting that shit backfires on them bigtime, like everything else the clueless GOPe RINO’s have done for the last twelve years.

    And right now NBC news is coming on with Trump and KKK front and center, never mind that he disavowed everything to do with that shit, and featuring their establishment darlings vowing to sabotage their own candidate.

    Wow.

    • H_B

      Rubio probably saved himself further harm by going hoarse today. He’s already said that Trump’s spray tan makes him too dark for his supporters to vote for, and that though Trump is six feet tall, he’s got small hands (meaning he’s got a small penis). I think he believes he’s “acting like Trump”, but he just sounds small and cheap instead of forthright and unmuzzled.

  • JTC

    Is it true what they say about Marco Rubio?
