The URL of this blog comes from a no longer published newspaper from my old home town in Massachusetts. "The Evening Chronicle" was owned and published by an old family friend and long time leader of the Republican Party from the Roosevelt Administration through the Eisenhower Administration, Joseph W. Martin Jr. I hope you all enjoy what you find here.

Justice Scalia's Untimely Death, Advantage Trump.
I think Scalia's untimely death will help Trump. All those "anybody but Trump" Republicans (RINOs) will now be all but forced to the polls, hold their nose and vote for Trump. Forced there by the now certainty that a Clinton or Sanders presidency will scrap all that remains of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution itself.
The Donald needs to respectfully wait until the memorial and funeral services are complete and then come out and boldly declare that he will indeed have a "litmus test" for any Supreme Court nominees and that it is the absolute sanctity of the 2nd Amendment.
No respectful person likes playing another person's tragic death for political advantage. That's why the Democrats do it all the time. But politics is indeed a dirty game and sadly this is no time for niceties.
