The first to drop out from the contest last month was Rick Perry, followed by an announcement today that Walker is also stepping down.

But after the continued surge in the polls by frontrunner Donald Trump and the impressive showing by Carly Fiorina in last week’s CNN debate, all the others are throwing in the towel.

Between Trump and Fiorina, the Republicans are confident that their standard bearer in the general elections will have a good shot at The White House, either against Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton.

The GOP says that the ideal match would be between Trump and Sanders, because of common hair-raising issues; or between Fiorina and Clinton who are both women.

So now, the focus has shifted to the Democratic race.

The Iowa caucuses are an electoral event in which residents of the state of meet in precinct caucuses in all of its 1,682 precincts and elect delegates to the corresponding county conventions. Iowa is the first state in the nation to hold caucuses in a presidential election year.

It is for this reason that Republican and Democratic presidential candidates were all in Des Moines this weekend, partaking of Iowa pork and everything that the Iowa State Fair offers. Not to mention great opportunities for  political campaigning.

This year, the organizing committee of the Iowa State Fair decided to rename the event to Iowa Circus to better reflect the high-profile guests that have come to town.

With 17 Republican candidates and four Democrats hitting the fair grounds, the committee thought that ‘circus’ would be a more approriate name, especially with the field of clowns and comedians that make up the Republican group of presidential aspirants.

And we’re not just talking about Donald Trump!


imageWASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – It is a scandal worse than Watergate or Irangate. It’s called Electiongate. (And these scandals always happen in Washington, D.C., go figure!).

Today, The Washington Post  confirmed that former President Bill Clinton had a meeting with Donald Trump just before the real estate mogul announced his bid to become the next president of the United States.

In that meeting, Clinton reportedly encouraged Trump to assume a bigger role in the Republican Party.  And he did, by announcing his quest to be the GOP’s nominee for president in the 2016 elections.

The rest is history, with Trump now leading in the polls and maintaining his solid frontrunner status going into Thursday’s Republican presidential debate on FOX News.

But political analysts always knew that Trump, a former Democrat, had a special bond with the Clintons.  He had, in fact, made huge contributions to the Clinton campaigns and to Bill and Hillary’s global foundation.

So, with the Post‘s exposé, it can now be told that Trump’s candidacy is actually a Democratic Party ploy to ensure that Hillary Clinton will become the next president of the United States. Both Trump and the Clintons know that the former can never be elected president and that if he, indeed, becomes the GOP nominee, Hillary is assured of winning all the electoral votes in the 50 states.

And that, exactly, is the plan all along.  This thing called Electiongate.

Now we know why Trump has been making all sorts of stupid, racist and ridiculous comments in the campaign trail.

It remains to be seen whether ‘Electiongate’ will be brought up by the FOX News moderators in Thursday’s debate.
