The new face of the GOP

On the 16th day of June 2015 (16 days from the publication of Ann Coulter's book on illegal immigration and 16 days before an illegal killed Kate Steinle) Donald Trump (16 months to election day 2016) announced his run for 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, making illegal immigration and border security the focus of his campaign.
Trump was half way there. For on April 26th (the 316th day of Trump's campaign and the 116th day or 16th week of 2016, see and see) Donald Trump swept five northeastern primary states virtually making him the GOP's presumptive presidential nominee (which he boldly declared he was on the following day* with most Republican voters afterwards agreeing with him, see). Indeed, as Trump is striving to be the 45th President his landslide victory on April 26th auspiciously fell on the 45th week of his candidacy.
*April 27 was 196 days from election day. 196 is a variant of the number 16: 1+9+6 = 16 (see).
But it wasn't until last night's victory in Indiana that Trump actually and effectively secured the nomination as GOP Chairman Reinice Priebus conceded that he was indeed the presumptive nominee. As the number 16 from the start of his unconventional campaign has been propitious for Trump it was nowhere in sight last night except in two small places: Indiana, the 19th state to join the Union did so in the 16th year of the 19th century*; and with a population of 6.6 million people Indiana ranks 16th in population (see).
*December 11, 1816.
Moreover, on his way to seizing the GOP nomination Trump defeated 16 party candidates with Ted Cruz, the last obstacle to victory, conceding defeat yesterday and suspending his campaign. When Cruz, age 45, called it quits it was the 16,570th day of his earthly existence (see). An amazing coincidence for the night Trump triumphed and won 57 delegates .


  1. With Cruz’s graceful bowing out, the fat lady is spraying her throat in preparation to do a little singing – time to unite in the effort to stop Hillary…

    1. Trump says that crafting an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal is going to be tough. I think crafting a Trump supporters-Cruz supporters peace deal may be even tougher.

      1. We can still believe that the candidate we supported was the best and still vote for whoever the nominee is. Most on both side already agreed to do that. We must stop Hillary or Sanders because we love America.

  2. I for one (at least) am thrilled. I understand the anger that voters have had for the elite “establishment” of the Republican party. They have become almost democrat lite. I felt the same way. We had the House and the Senate, yet the democrats always had their way.
    Time for new blood, by an outsider with the strength of his convictions .
    Now Kachich (sp)? is out also, and it is full speed ahead for the Donald.
    It is also time for republicans to unite to defeat the democrat which is presumably Hillary Clinton. ( the biggest crook in DC)

    1. .Uh, no. At the starting gate, more media lies. The Trump is ahead and will win again, as usual.

    2. What it really comes down to now, is who has the most baggage, and skeletons in the closet. Trump or Hillary?

    3. Trump has some work to do, no question. However, these polls are not that scary. Gotta start somewhere!

  3. Donald Trump will create a new party of the middle class republicans and the middle class democrats.

    The question is how he goes about solidifying it.

    It’s long overdue.

  4. Exclusive: President Fox Apologizes, Invites Trump to Mexico – Breitbart

    The Mexicans are shitting bricks. Love it.

    1. Fox says, “I don’t think he should follow the strategy of attacking others, offending others, to get to his purpose. There are other ways and means of doing it. I invite him to come to Mexico and to see what Mexico is all about.”

      The White Spaniards who run Mexico are beginning to crap in their pants! Trump should wait to visit until he’s president. Then he can deliver the “message of change” personally, and pick up the check for the wall while he’s there.

    2. Trump to Apologizing Mexican President: “Get Your Money Ready, Cause You’re Going to Pay for the Wall” – Justin Holcomb

      Donald says what he means and does what he says. When he’s prez Mexico is going to pay for the wall. Period!

      1. If Trump does 1/2 of the stuff he promised, he will be 10 times better than the last 4 presidents.

        1. It’s been said before, but just to underscore the point, Trump is fundamentally about two things: making good deals, and making/keeping the Trump-brand sterling. It’s not a good deal, according to Trump, if promises made aren’t kept, and if both sides are not happy. Above all, the Trump brand would take a fatal hit if Trump campaigned on certain basic issues/promises and then, once elected, failed to follow through.

          No worries; barring the kind of upheavals only God can foresee, sceptics be pleasantly surprised.
