COMMON SENSE: Mr. President, for 7.5 years you have not spoken up about how Barack Obama has been systematically trying to destroy the United States of America. Now, after remaining silent for so long, you choose to be vocal—not about Obama’s disastrous policies or Hillary’s corruption—but about Donald Trump and your inability to support his nomination for President.
Maybe you were wise to not criticize Obama. If that’s true, then you would have been equally wise to continue remaining silent. You haven’t snubbed Trump as much as you have snubbed those who voted for you twice but are fed up with electing Campaign Conservatives—those who do not keep their promises to the American people once they have been elected.
Respectfully, Sir, I am very disappointed with you. Because of his age, I give your dad a pass.

th
COMMON SENSE: Trump will win in November. He will be our next President and Commander-in-Chief. Count on it. Despite what all of the talking heads tell you to the contrary, they are wrong. I am right about this; trust me.
 
Here’s the reason why: Trump has the best political instincts I have ever seen—better than Reagan’s, Bill Clinton’s, or Barack Obama’s. Because I did not take Trump seriously at first, I didn’t see this, but it has become the most obvious characteristic of his campaign, once I started paying closer attention.
 
Hillary can’t think on her feet; Trump can. Hillary can’t pivot without massive scripting; Trump does this fluidly. Hillary, like her policies and thinking, is old and unsuccessful. Trump’s idea and style is new, innovative, and solidly anti-establishment.
 
Here are some of the things I think Trump should do in to enhance his position:
 
1. He should continue to stress how unfair the Democrats are being to Sanders by denying him equal distribution to their super-delegates, calling the system crooked and rigged. By doing this, it will continue to erode Hillary’s position with millennials. By the time Hillary gets the nomination, which is inevitable, there will be a gaping hole in the coalition that elected Obama twice.
 
2. Pick Rubio to be his V.P. Because Marco is liked and respected by both conservatives and RINOs, he can be indispensable in healing wounds with those who need to be in the Trump coalition. Once selected, send Marco to the Capitol to meet with Republican leaders. Then, turn him loose to get the Latino vote in FL, CA, NM, NY, and NJ—all states that will be in play.
 
3. Start naming people who will be considered for a Trump cabinet position, using the example of Christie as Attorney General, Carson as Surgeon General, etc. By beginning to surround himself with respected and talented people, using the Reagan model of being Chairman of the Board, tepid and tenuous supporters will become enthusiastic.
 
4. Drop several names as possible Supreme Court nominees, including Ted Cruz. Because Cruz’s supporters are all committed Constitutionalists, they will see the value of a Cruz appointment, and the #NeverTrump movement will melt like ice cream in July.

th
COMMON SENSE: If I were advising Donald Trump, this is what I would tell him to do. After winning Indiana on Tuesday, which is going to happen, I would thank Ted Cruz for running a spirited campaign. Then, I would never mention him again. I wouldn’t even acknowledge Kasich.
I would shift all of my attention on Hillary, asking when the FBI’s criminal investigation about her server and foundation would be made public. Put the pressure on them to be forthcoming. Make them be defensive. Doing this would generate a lot of coverage, and there is no downside to it.
Within a week or two, I would select Marco Rubio to be my running mate. It would assuage the miffed feelings of many conservatives and establishment Republicans too. After picking him, I would turn him loose in CA, where his Spanish heritage is a real plus.
Once Trump gets to 1,237 delegates, which he will, I would allow Kasich to open up the Convention, since it’s in Cleveland. By doing all of these things, he can start the healing process, while simultaneously putting Crooked Hillary on the defensive.

COMMON SENSE: What a blowout in New York for Donald Trump. When the primaries began, I liked Walker, Rubio, and Cruz; eventually landing on Cruz. I liked him because of his commitment to the Constitution and the Rule of Law, which President Obama has never followed or honored. Of the seventeen candidates, like so many others, I considered the Trump candidacy to be a joke, but I was wrong.
 
He is clearly he choice of the people, despite what the Republican establishment wants. Since the RINOs have given us McCain and Romney—both of whom ran terrible campaigns—perhaps they need to reevaluate their position on Trump. Mathematically, Kasich has been dead meat for weeks. If he had any dignity, he would quit, but he will not. Instead, he wants to try any manipulate the process to gain the nomination, despite the fact that he has been soundly repudiated by the people.
 
My candidate, Cruz, is on life-support and will be eliminated mathematically next Tuesday. I hope he is gracious and gets out of the race. There are a lot of conservatives who do not like Trump, but I can’t believe any of them would prefer Hillary Clinton—who Trump has accurately deemed “Crooked Hillary.”
 
Now, it’s time to come together and heal the hurt feelings that so many have. We must do this. It’s our responsibility. After all, America is worth it. Our choice is either Trump or Crooked Hillary. I know which one will be best for America; don’t you?

Jack at Kappa SigCOMMON SENSE: At my fraternity, Kappa Sigma, each year we held a “Pig Party.” On that evening, each brother would ask out a really ugly girl, bring her over to the fraternity house, and laugh at all of them behind their backs, secretly choosing the Queen. Although I never participated, I was a brother, so these were the kind of guys I associated with. Many fraternities did things like this—not just ours.
 
The brothers loved to mock these girls, who had no idea how badly they were being ridiculed. It was a terrible thing to do, but it illustrates an important point. In my analogy, Ted Cruz is the Ugly Girl who is being courted by the Republican Establishment.
 
Cruz is all smiles, believing he actually has gained the support of Washington D.C., RINOs, but he hasn’t. They are using him, mocking him behind his back, just waiting for the opportunity to humiliate him—dropping him like a hot potato. Sadly, like the unfortunate girls, who believed a handsome guy saw through the veneer of unattractiveness to their inner beauty, Cruz believes the Republican Establishment is embracing his candidacy. Just like the Pig Party, everything about it is deceptive.
 
Rather than bask in the false glow of this scam, Cruz would be much better served to make peace with Donald Trump, and via-se-versa. If the two men unite, which would require wisdom and discernment from both of them—a tall order—the RINOs would not be strong enough to accomplish their goal, which is to snatch the nomination away from both of them.
 
The only way for the Establishment to achieve its goal, which is to nominate Kasich or someone else, is for the Cruz and Trump to remain enmeshed in their adolescent squabbles. So far, just like my fraternity brothers, this nefarious RINO strategy is working, and they are laughing—just like the Kappa Sigs did at the ugly girls so many years ago.

COMMON SENSE: Why is John Kasich still in the race? Why is he still receiving as much attention as Donald Trump and Ted Cruz? Kasich has no chance of winning the nomination—not one in a million. Yet, he is still out there peddling his ideas—like he’s a viable candidate—and the media treats him like he’s still in the running.
 
He just doesn’t have enough integrity to bow out gracefully, that’s all. Bush, Rubio, Walker, and even Lindsey Graham had enough integrity to do so, but not Kasich.
 
If I were Trump or Cruz, I would demand that Kasich not be included in any debates or anything else. All Kasich wants to do is deny Trump the nomination and create a brokered convention—something the voters do not want. If anybody thinks Kasich is helping Cruz; think again. He isn’t. Kasich’s sleazy attempts to nullify the will of the voters should make all of us look at him like he has you-know-what on the soles of his shoes. That doesn’t smell very good, and neither does he.
 
Kasich, you have no following and should get out of the race—NOW!

COMMON SENSE: Amazingly, people seem to think Hillary Clinton’s election to the White House is inevitable, when the exact opposite is true. In reality, she is the weakest candidate running . . . by far.
 
Let me explain. In states that normally vote for a Democrat in the General Election, she is being trounced by The Bern—a clueless Socialist, but also a decent man. When I say trounced, I mean decimated. In last week’s primaries, for example, The Bern received more than 70% of the vote.
 
Where Hillary is supposed to be strong, as the Democratic nominee, she is weak, but she does have a sizable lead in the delegates. The reason for this, other than the corruptible Super Delegates, is Hillary has soundly defeated The Bern in SC and other Southern states. Being first, SC was Hillary’s “Firewall,” according to the pundits. She beat The Bern handily, but in a General Election, what do you think Hillary’s chances are of winning SC? Let me tell you: Zero!
 
Regardless of who the Republicans choose, their candidate will beat Hillary in SC. The same is true in every other Southern state where Hillary won in the Democratic Primary. In the General Election, she will not win any of these states, but none of the commentators ever mention this, do they?
 
In the states she needs to win—the Blue States—she is losing big time, and in the states she has no chance of taking from the Republicans—the Red States—she seems strong, but it’s only because of the black community, which isn’t large enough to carry any Southern State.
 
This alone shows you exactly how vulnerable she is, especially if the Republicans ever get their act together, which they may not.
 
One more thing: We still have not heard what the FBI has to say about her criminal behavior. When we do, the few people who mistakenly believe she is trustworthy and honest may change their minds.
