    I was thinking we should keep a sharp eye on Chief Cherokee Warren. Her native american fanbase is growing at rapid speed!

    I don't disagree with you at all - nor the original poster to whom you replied. But may I ask, what are the "unacceptable" views to which you're referring? Can you give me some examples?

    I don't disagree with your thoughts on Mitt's run. But his comments ceased to hold any validity the moment he wanted to be part of the Trump administration. Some will say that he was doing it for the American people, but I can't see my way clear to agreeing with that. He wanted to remain 'relevant', and he sold his soul in order to do that. And while I'm at it, I feel the very same way about Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. How they could support the man who publicly abused and humiliated them is beyond me. Trump dragged the election process down into the gutter - and they should not have let him get away with it.

    The dumb "Pocahontas!" brayed refrain by the P-Grabber got very tired very quickly. I think she shut him up. I don't know if he is capable of confronting her on substantive policy isues.

    Willard's machinations will be fascinating to watch.

    The only reason she's labeled as dumb is because she claimed she's a Cherokee. Which has offended the Cherokees.

    Valid points. Willard can claim that only flirted with the Secretary of State position to turn Lyin'Don down if it had been offered. It would have been fatal for his presidential ambition if he had taken it. I expect him to keep a low profile, solidify support within the GOP, accumulate favors owed, and make his move when the stars align.

    Cruz proved himself spineless after the lowlife insulted his wife and accused his father of being complicit in JFK's assassination. If he had knocked him on his fay arse, he would still not have become likable, but would have earned a modicum of respect.

    Rubio's future is past.

    In regard to your attempted diversion, Senator Warren never claimed to be a member of the Cherokee Nation. Most folks with Cherokee ancestry are not.

    As a policy wonk, the Professor may be able to help the P-Grabber with his promise of "something terrific!" healthcare that "covers everybody!" at "lower cost!"

    Instead of pandering to his goons with his embarrassingly childish nonsense, he could profit off her ability.

    She absolutely did:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/nati...84311d27129_story.html?utm_term=.b4ebdd0a7776

    And actual Cherkoees and other Native Americans are not happy with her false claims.

    But you'll vote for Chief Warren of the Cherokee anyway ;)

    The DNA test did not place her in the Cherokee nation, but only that there was native American in her genes. Her parents did not take a DNA test.

    Truly I can't think of any specifics right now. I think I was referring to the problem with some ideas, expressions and so on as being unacceptable meaning that they stray from the dictated path of righteousness and thus are to be suppressed. Instead of engaging with the idea as represented, instead they are condemned and silenced and anyone who dares to bring them up is to be shouted down.

    The stark contrast between Republican conservatives and the RINOs of Trumpery presages a confrontation of decent, traditional values with the scurulous hysterical harangue as a political platform.

    VS

    Now is the time for decent conservatives to come to the aid of their party, their country, and their values.

    After Tuesday, when most Americans' revulsion for Lyin Don has ravaged the House, I fully expect conservatives to get serious about taking back their Party from the RINOs of Trumpery.

    Trump is poison, and the tide is turning away from him, but the viable party of the People that can take on the Republicrat monolith created by the aristocracy has yet to emerge.

    But even a crass fauxcialist like Warren is looking viable the way Trump is sinking into his own Bolton/Sessions-infested swamp.
