The GOP is tanking and coming apart at the seams

    This could be the end of the established Republican party in the US. While Donald Trump has the majority of delegates for the upcoming Republican Convention and should get the Republican nomination for President, every day various members of the GOP and even delegates pledged to vote for him on the first ballot are working on ways to prevent his nomination.

    Never in modern times has there been such an open revolt and mass resistance to the obvious nominee for President from one of the two main parties. Completely unprecedented. Meanwhile among the public both regular citizens, and known politicians are stating loudly and clearly they won't vote for Trump.

    Should the anti Trump forces somehow find a way to block his nomination there will be a wild revolt among those that support him.

    Looks to me like the end of the GOP as we know it.

    Nah, this is mostly wishful thinking on the part of the liberal, lamestream press and part of their standard playbook at this time of the election year. This type of "fear mongering" is simply their latest attempt to discourage Republicans/conservatives into thinking that all is lost. It is not. In fact, which party still has two candidates going into their convention? Is it the Republicans? Nope, it is the Democrats. Do you hear any similar claptrap about the Bernie voters revolting from the lamestream press? Of course not, because another facet of the liberal propaganda machine is to never see any discord or problems within the Democratic party. This is despite the fact that polls are right now showing that fully 50% of Bernie backers say that they will NEVER vote for Hillary.

    Bottomline: the reports of the death of the Republican Party are premature. :)

    Just to show how f*cked up and biased the libtard media is look at what they are now reporting about the will of the people in Great Britain:

    Britain's Cameron to resign after shocking vote

    Why is it shocking? Shocking to who? The vast majority of people want out of the EU and it's shocking?

    BREAKING: Nasdaq seeing worst drop since Nov, 2011 because of Brexit!

    The truth they don't want anyone to know:
    Sterling Rises to Record 2016 High During Brexit Vote.

    Look, the lamestream, liberal press has been following a playbook that has worked for at least 50 years. It is to lie, lie some more, and then continue lying in the face of all facts or reason. When they had complete control of the media, it worked very well. Now, however, with the rise of talk radio, the Internet, etc., they can no longer lie with impunity and just get away with it. This has them and their co-conspirator liberal politicians in a real panic because they are starting to see that the game is up. It is by no means completely over yet as they still are able to lie quite effectively to low information voters around the world (and they are a growing group, unfortunately) but it is not like it used to be for them.

    Nigel Farage = Donald Trump. Just a much larger bigoted moron. That is hard to achieve.

    And that's fine, but I believe you're on the wrong side of history. Just like the mainstream USA is. What's happened in the UK is a revolution of a sort. Same is happening in the US. In a way, the UK's exit has sealed Trump's victory. Nothing is warranted, of course, but it gives me hope that he does win come November.

    I see. Zero foreign policy(cant find syria on a map), multiple bankruptcies, serial liar, mysogonist flip flopping dumb ass. He is going to win exactly nothing. More noteworthy, there will only be a handful of republicans left standing come Nov. in the first place.

    Who are you comparing him to - the lying, stealing, corrupt, no accountability candidate on the left - Hilary Clinton? Classy.

    Regarding the bankruptcies, that argument / discussion is so laughable and hearing Hilary talking about it is hilarious. . . The only thing she has done in the business sector is gained hundreds of thousands of dollars per/in speeches she's not qualified to give and earned millions from "book deals". All for "favors". Again, very classy and all OK because she's a lib.

    Anyone with an ounce of business acumen, know that businesses make money and lose money, business leaders make good decisions and bad ones.

    Is he the first person to make a bad investment decision? No.
    Are those businesses the only to file for bankruptcy? No.
    Are his casinos the only ever to file for bankruptcy? No.
    Is he bankrupt himself? No.

    What I find most amusing is that all of those statements are entire wrong and you are frankly dumb as a box of hammers.

    people on the left are more delusional than ever. .

    The Dems continue to destroy this country - all the recent attacks and shootings going on the republicans are in trouble. . SURE!

    They continue to run around talking tough, confused as hell - with zero solutions to the problems. Guns.. . . Guns. . . Guns. . This president has been in office for 8 freakin' years and still can't figure out the problem.

    Right, Republicans own House for 6 years and House and Senate for 2 and yet not even
    one Job Bill to fix crumbling infrastructure and as you have said: Obama's fault because
    all he could do alone, without Republicans help, is to create only 14 Millions lousy jobs.

    Hmmm.... Good question...
    I wonder how many more Obama would create if Republicans chose to help him?
    I would bet no more than another lousy 10 Millions.
