January 19,20 and 21

Post Iowa fallout

Spirit Lake, Iowa


My results here were way below my expectations and I cannot in good conscience continue on. I endorse the great American Patriot, Ted Cruz!

Columbia, South Carolina


I'm not done yet, the Palmetto State will be my final stand!

Indianola, Iowa

It's been an honor to run for President, and I look forward to returning to Los Angeles and continue serving as Mayor. I offer my endorsement to Secretary Clinton, if she's willing to accept it.

Ames, Iowa

As much as I'd like to stick around in this race, the facts are I do not have the support to win the nomination. I will support a great American hero, Ted Cruz!!!\

Boulder, Colorado

I believe that the West was always my path to victory and that is why I am going to stay in the race

Mankato, Minnesota


My efforts in Iowa were in vain, and so with a heavy heart, I suspend my Presidential campiaign, I endorse a passionate Democrat, who has not been part of the Clinton-Obama era of misrule. I endorse Senator Tom Daschle

New Hampshire aftermath


January 27, 2016

Greenville, South Carolina


It's an open-ended race, and I've said all along South Carolina is where the my last stand will be. 
Reno, Nevada

If I can pull of an upset in Nevada I'll be right back in this one, and with the endorsement of MoveOn.org we have the resources to compete. I'm not going anywhere!

Super Bowl Sunday ends with Brady retiring on top

Bill Belichick will get another Lombardi trophy to add to his legend as a coach, and more importantly Tom Brady will retire on top, after the New England Patriots defeated the Detroit Lions 30-24 in light drizzle and temperatures in the low 50's at Wembley Stadium, in London United Kingdom. Danny Amendola was named the games MVP, but most importantly, Londoners for the first time expressed heavy interest in having an NFL franchise. Maybe we can send them the Jaguars or the Raiders?

California Republicans Deny recruiting Brady to run for Senate

While some sources say returning California Republican Chairman Ron Nehring seems determined to field a strong candidate to face Sen. Barbara. Boxer, he doesn't have one yet, only drawing so far Riverside County Sheriff Stanley Sniff and Actress Vanessa Marcil, however  rumors had him meeting with now retired NFL Quarterback Tom Brady at a off-season home in Los Angeles, just a few days before the Super Bowl. Brady has a following even in California that would dwarf that of Marcil and fundraising ability dwarfing that of Sniff. Nehring has denied the Brady rumors, and a representative for Brady did not comment when asked about the issue. Both the Club for Growth and FreedomWorks have already come out against Brady and Marcil.

February 3 2016

Bloomington, Minnesota



In the interests, of party unity, I will suspend my campaign and endorse Senator Cruz, for president, because I believe he is the voice conservatives want to hear!  

Rolla, Missouri

Having not won a state yet, and having not led in a state yet, I believe now is the time for me to suspend my campaign. I will endorse Senator Cruz because, he is as strong a social conservative as he is a fiscal Conservative.

Slidell Louisana


While I thought I could make it to South Carolina, I was wrong. I will endorse Senator Cruz, because he is the clear leader, and because our party needs to be united to challenge Hillary in November!

Ann Arbor, Michigan
 

Hillary's the heavy leader in this one, but I still think I can get back in this!

Provo, Utah

We did it, we were the one's that beat Hillary... Now we move on to Nevada and Arizona where we expect to win again!



Pierre, South Dakota
In the interests of party unity, I will reluctantly suspend my Campaign and endorse Hillary Clinton...

I can see it is time for me to depart the race... I endorse Secretary Clinton because she has served our country and President faithfully, like I have, and she is the person who will stop the Ted Cruz menace in November!

Bashar-Al Assad killed, Damascus and Syria fall to Al-Qaeda

Bashar Al-Assad was killed last night after Al-Qaeda linked forces captured the capitol city of Damascus early yesterday. The Al-Qaeda forces, who subsumed the Syrian opposition in November of 2014 have stated they intend to have an "elected government in accordance with Islamic Law". Both Iran and Iraq have broken ties with the new government led by admitted terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Baghdadi in a formal inauguration speech in Aleppo, said his next goal would be to formally annex Lebanon.

Denver, Colorado



I  spoke to secretary Clinton a few hours ago and congratulated her on her victories, and now I'd like to congratulate her on one more. I am suspending my campaign for President and endorsing Secretary Clinton for President.

With Schweitzer out Hillary Clinton is the presumptive nominee


With the announcement this morning that Brian Schweitzer will suspend his campaign, Hillary Clinton has become the presumptive nominee of the Democratic party. Clinton who fended off a tougher than expected challenge from both Tom Daschle and Joe Biden with ease, is the favorite against the current leader in delegates for the GOP Ted Cruz, but trails both Scott Walker and Judd Gregg

Bloomberg and Bolling will run for President on Independent ticket





Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg announced that he would run for President in a press release from his New York City office which also, announced that Virginia Governor Bill Bolling would be his running mate. Bloomberg said a formal announcement would occur later tonight in Roanoke, Virginia.


Roanoke, Virginia



Mike and I are excited to be running this race, and we expect to do well together. America has always been a land where people of opposite views could get together, and solve our differences, but the rise of the Tea Party, and the Liberal Left has prevented that.  Mike and I, if elected will not only unite people , but we will bring down the political walls that divide people in the first place!



Hillary Clinton and Ted Cruz are very different candidates, and we believe that there is a big enough gap, an if I may borrow a phrase from Nixon, silent majority that's just pissed off with all this partisan bickering. We don't seek to be non-partisan, we just seek to be less partisan.

Clinton releases tax returns dating back to 2009

Just five days after tax day Hillary Clinton's campaign office, led by campaign manager Cheryl Mills and Communications director Howard Wolfson have coordinated the release of all information regarding Hillary Clinton's taxes from 2009-2015. This comes as a response to attacks from Cruz surrogates Mark Sanford and Sean Duffy calling for the release of the information.

A Cruz administration will not accept the environmental movement one iota. We believe in businesses making money no matter the cost. We will abolish the department of Energy, and the EPA, we will round up and crush pro-environment protests and we will smash the idea that environment is a thing that needs to be saved!

Cruz under fire from all sides for statement in Eureka

Jacksonville, Florida


What Senator Cruz wants is the powers of a dictator. If he wants to crush the environment so badly, he should move to China!!!

Buffalo, New York

Senator Cruz is being completely idiotic, of course businesses have to care for the environment, otherwise how are they to make profits forty or even fifty years from now. Of Course, this is the wing of the Republican Party that chased my running mate away...  

Roanoke, Virginia


Senator Cruz has gone raving mad, but that's the modus operendi of the Republican Party these days, nominate crazy people for public office, and leave the sane people in the cold.

Lyons, France
Valery Giscard d'Estaing dies at 90



Former French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing has passed away of severe kidney failure at 90 years old. A proud proponent of the now tottering European Union, d'Estianig was elected President in 1974, before falling to the resurgent left, led by Francois Mitterand in 1981. Funeral services will be held in the commune of Issoire on May 5, following which, d'Estaing's body will lie in state at the Palace of Versailles for 48 hours.

Yom Hashoah-Holocaust Remembrance day,remembered by the candidates

Israel has every right and reason to say "never again". But Israel shouldn't be acting alone and as President I will ensure that they will not.

Vero Beach, Florida

Israel has the authority to not only take down any threats to their existence, but lets face it if they wanted to they'd be justified in completely wiping out the Al-Qaeda led Syrian Government and the population. But they don't. That shows self-control, something everyone else in the Middle East does not have.

Boca Raton, Florida


Israel has, the right, the ability, and the prerogative to conduct a holocaust of their own against Islam in the name of survival, and I believe it is their duty to do so. 

Touro Synagouge, Newport Rhode Island


Some of you may have heard Senator Cruz's comment calling for a "holocaust against Islam"earlier today. I say that peace is won by fighting with violence, peace is won by getting all sides together at the negotiating table, and discussing the issues. What Senator Cruz is trying to do is re-fight the Crusades and that will get us nowhere.

Jerusalem, Israel

I just want to make one thing clear to Mr. Cruz, We the Israeli people are not in the business of murdering innocent civilians. As such we will not be giving him a visa to enter the country, and should he be elected we will seek to bar him from Israeli soil as well.


Temple Emanuel-El, Manhattan, New York City


As Secretary Clinton said last night, and Prime Minister Livni said this morning what Senator Cruz said, was foolish and likely to start a World War. The Crusades began almost one thousand years ago. We don't need to keep fighting them today.

Paris, France
Chirac passes away at 83

France is again in mourning after former President Jacques Chirac, died last night of a stroke. He was 83 years old. Chirac who also served as Prime Minister and Mayor of Paris, is also known for being the most vocal opponent of Operation Iraqi Freedom, and so far he has been proven right. The funeral will be held on May 15 in Paris, and he will lie in state from the the 13th to the 15th at the Palace of Versailles and from the 16th to the 18th at Jacques Chirac Museum in Sarran.
