    Trump Picking Pence As Running Mate

    Donald Trump has chosen Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his vice presidential running mate, sources told CBS News.

    Earlier Thursday, one of Pences top aides was spotted on a flight to New York.

    Deputy Campaign Manager Marc Lotter was on the same flight at CBS News Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett.

    Trump has said he will formally announce his pick on Friday morning at an event in Manhattan...

    Go Forward With Courage

    When you are in doubt, be still, and wait;
    when doubt no longer exists for you, then go forward with courage.
    So long as mists envelop you, be still;
    be still until the sunlight pours through and dispels the mists
    -- as it surely will.
    Then act with courage.

    Ponca Chief White Eagle

    I dont think that there will be any curtailing of Donald Trump as president, he said. "He controls the media, he controls the sentiment [and] he controls everybody. Hes the one who will resort to executive orders more so than [President] Obama ever used them." - Ron Paul

    This guy could even be POTUS on Day 2. Trump has said he could resign if he got elected and didn't feel like doing the job. Otherwise, he would be VPINO:

    Please quote where Trump has said he could resign...

    EDIT: It's been hours and you haven't responded. So why post things like this when you know they are untrue?

    From the speculation thread but oh, so appropriate a response:

    Where does Trump say he might quit if he won the election? Answer: NO WHERE.

    “This is silly,” said Sean Spicer, a spokesman for the Republican National Committee, which has tried hard to make the Trump campaign more professional. “He’s in it to win it.”

    If he quits, he would have to do it after the hypothetical inauguration. If he does it as the hypothetical president-elect, pretty sure he hands it to Clinton.

    Mike Pence is a globalist NeoCon. He supported the United Nations, and the Export-Import Bank in Congress. And of course he supported NDAA military detention, the Patriot Act, the Iraq War, presidential overreach in Libya etc.

    The only asset that Pence brings, will be his extensive knowledge of the HoR.

    A sense of danger gives birth to fear. And fear is the time-honored cross for the crucifixion of liberty.

    You are looking for a direct quote. This authors makes the case using trumps actions and words over a period of time. There are actually several other articles that make the same case. But i didn't want to clog up the thread. And I've learned that those who worship the Cheeto Man, don't care about facts. Cognitive dissonance requires they reject them. Bending facts to fit a fictional character messiah.

    This pick confirms that Trump buys in to Scott Adams theory that all he had to do is avoid any mistakes and he will cruise to a landslide victory. Pence is a boring non-entity that the public doesn't know and the media has little interest in. The entire "VP selection" news cycle will be over in a day. By picking him Trump is signaling that he doesn't want the VP to be a story in the campaign at all. Pence is as close as you can get to not making a VP selection while still technically fulfilling the requirement of naming a human being to the post.

    Don't bother explaining to them. Trump supporters are dumb as rocks. They still think he's "anti-establishment."

    Pence is a poor insurance policy, but I agree that he's a relative political non-entity, aside from his HoR knowledge. The evangicucks and the establishment were thrown a favor with this bone. But even a certain segment of the Evangicucks aren't happy with the selection because Pence backed down on a prospective Religious Freedom bill.

    Not necessarily. But a fair segment of evangelicals are complete speedbumps for Israel and not causing a ruckus against the government. They are cucks in the truest sense of the word in that they have been indoctrinated by the many megachurches.

    This is all that needs to be said. Trumpsters will spin it as a 'genius pick' and their circular logic will continue...
