"Conservatives" who insist that Trump is too imperfect to support are helping Hillary Clinton and may put her in position to create a "progressive" United States Supreme Court and that catastrophe would be on them.

Bulletin: Donald Trump will be the 2016 Republican presidential nomination and"Rule or Ruin" Establishment Republicans are Clinton enablers.

The handwriting was on the wall as the Super Tuesday Republican primary results came in.

Trump's won 10 of 15 states, including 10 of 13 primary states.

Ted Cruz won his home state Texas, but failed to win the majority that would have given him all the Texas delegates.

Cruz won two other states, Oklahoma, which borders Texas, and Alaska, but they were not winner take all states and Trump came in second with substantial vote totals.

Marco Rubio is one for fifteen, winning only Minnesota, a caucus state. He's yet to win a primary in the presidential election race.

John Kasich's best performance yesterday was second in Vermont.

He can't win.

Ben Carson hasn't won anything but the affection of admirers.

Earlier Jeb Bush avoided a humiliating loss in Florida by suspending his campaign.

Chris Christie campaigned hard in New Hampshire, but never caught fire. Then he did the right thing; suspend his campaign and endorse Trump.

Trump is well positioned to win Michigan, Florida and even Ohio this month.

Trump will win the nomination. The Democrats and themedia want the battle to continue, of course, and sore losers want to make Trump unelectable in the general election.


CNN reported (www.cnn.com/2016/03/01/politics/republican-donald-trump-super-pac-call/index.html):

"Katie Packer, the Republican operative leading the anti-Donald Trump super PAC, pitched her strategy to stop the Republican front-runner on a call with more than 50 GOP donors and power brokers Tuesday, including those with ties to the campaigns of Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker and Chris Christie.

"Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman, who was Chris Christie's national finance co-chair, and Brian Baker, a Republican operative connected to the Ricketts family, both spoke on the call, sources who were on the call told CNN.

"It came on Super Tuesday, as Trump prepared to build on his lead – and Republican loyalists increasingly fretted the prospect that Trump will run away with the nomination.'"


These people are Clinton enablers.

If they were Republican loyalists, they'd be helping Trump bring the Republican Party together and targeting Hillary Clinton instead of Trump.

Packer told CNN that "it concerns [her]" that Super Tuesday's results might not make her task any easier by knocking any Republicans out of the field" and added, "if the worst-case scenario is we have to take it all the way to the convention, that's fine by me."

Hillary Clinton must be cackling over that.

"Conservatives" who insist that Trump is too imperfect to support are helping Hillary Clinton and may put her in position to create a "progressive" United States Supreme Court and that catastrophe would be on them.

Trump has explained that he would appoint a person in the Scalia tradition.

That's critically important.

Who thinks Hillary Clinton would do that?

If she gets the chance, watch the First Amendment's religious liberty clause, the Second Amendment right to bear arms and the Fourteenth Amendment be "reinterpreted" by activists who want to make instead of follow the law.
