DALLAS, Texas (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Any math teacher will tell you that 17 minus 1 leaves you with 16, but that seems not to be the case with the Republican presidential candidates.  The correct answer is 36.

Up until yesterday, the U.S. electorate was closely watching the campaigns of the 17 declared Republican candidates — ten of whom were featured in the last FOX News prime-time debate and seven in the not-so-prime time pre-show.

Now that former Texas Governor Rick Perry has officially announced that he was dropping out of the race, the Republican field now stands at 36 candidates for president.

In his announcement, Perry said,  “We have a tremendous field – the best in a generation – so I step aside knowing our party is in good hands, and as long as we listen to the grassroots, the cause of conservatism will be too.”

Here is a complete list of declared Republican presidential candidates still in the running — in alphabetical order.

Who is the next to drop out?

We can now confidently predict that it’s not going to be Donald Trump.


CaptureNEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (The Adobo Chronicles®) – When you’re running for your party’s nomination for president, and you’re among those in the bottom of a  field of 17 candidates, you’ve got to change your campaign strategy. Forget the issues and attack your opponents, especially the front runner.

That’s exactly what Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal did on Thursday as he unloaded on Donald Trump, calling him “insecure,” “weak” and “dangerous.”

Jindal also said of Trump: “Just because a lot of people like watching Kim Kardashian — we wouldn’t put her in the White House, either.”

In a speech at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. Jindal said that Trump and Kardashian are in the same league, being both products of reality television.

“Like Kardashian, Donald Trump is a narcissist and egomaniac. The only thing he believes in is himself,” Jindal said.

Trump and Kardashian both reacted to Jindal’s barbs.

Trump said, “Jindal has no legal standing to make such statements.  He’s an anchor baby, and I’m going to make sure that if I become president, he will be deported.”

Kardashian on the other hand told The Adobo Chronicles®, “Let see him get naked and let’s see who has a better behind.”

And the 2016 political season shifts into high gear.

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is dead serious about his recently-announced immigration policy, and he is not waiting until he gets elected.

Trump’s policy includes the building a a great wall along the entire stretch of the southern border with Mexico, deporting all the estimated 11 Million undocumented immigrants now living in the U.S., and amending the constitutional provision for birthright citizenship.

Speaking with reporters at the Trump hotel in Las Vegas, the real estate mogul revealed a list of the 5 top priorities that he wants to be deported immediately:

  1. Senator Ted Cruz, also a Republican presidential candidate, who was born in Canada
  2. Governor Bobby ‘Piyush’ Jindal, another Republican presidential candidate, who was born in the U.S. to a mother who was at the time not a U.S. citizen
  3. Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush, who claimed in his Texas voter registration that he was Latino
  4. Jose Antonio Vargas, Pulitzer prize winner and self-identified undocumented immigrant from the Philippines
  5. The twin cubs recently born to a  giant panda loaned by the Chinese government to the National Zoo in Washington, D.C.

“I hate rhetoric,” Trump said, “let’s get serious in protecting our borders and get these undocumented folks out of here!”
