  • Hillary Clinton flip-flops from 2008 positions in bid for liberal voters’ support

    The Washington Times ^ | October 12, 2015 | Kelly Riddell
    The Hillary Rodham Clinton that enters Tuesday’s kickoff Democratic presidential campaign looks markedly different from the one that ran for president in 2008, as she chases the liberal voters that have come to dominate her party’s nomination process with a leftward drift. The last time Mrs. Clinton took the stage for a presidential debate, she was against same sex-marriage, a supporter of the Second Amendment, stood behind her Iraq War vote and was opposed to states issuing driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. Flash forward to Tuesday in Las Vegas, and Mrs. Clinton enters as a backer of same-sex couples, a...

    A little noticed event earlier this week brought ominous tidings to the Trump 2016 campaign, which spent most of the summer riding high on a wave of triumphalism and defiance against the GOP establishment machine. Donald Trump held a campaign event in Iowa, and CNN didn’t even acknowledge that it was happening. Indeed, while the assembled crowd waited to hear the latest Trump Brand Pablum in person, even CNN’s chryon blared on about the huge crowds that were at that moment being drawn by … Bernie Sanders.

    If you needed any more reason not to support Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House, check out the Fox News hacks this past Sunday. Karl Rove and George Will are basically in love with Paul Ryan, claiming he would be a perfect selection to replace the weeping drunk Boehner. George Will must have some sort of connection to Republican RINOs from the state of Wisconsin. His wife worked on Scott Walker’s failed campaign, and now he wants Paul Ryan to be the next speaker. When you add Karl Rove to the mix, it basically tells you what type of...

    There has been a great deal of ridiculous outrage over some perfectly defensible comments Ben Carson made last week. During an interview with Wolf Blitzer, Carson was asked to clarify something he’d written in his book, “A More Perfect Union”: German citizens were disarmed by their government in the late 1930s, and by the mid-1940s Hitler’s regime had mercilessly slaughtered six million Jews and numerous others whom they considered inferior … Through a combination of removing guns and disseminating deceitful propaganda, the Nazis were able to carry out their evil intentions with relatively little resistance. With Blitzer, Carson added:...

    Interesting questions, interesting answers. Sharyl Attkisson — host of “Full Measure,” a new investigative political talk show that debuted last week — has offered some fact-driven verve and refreshing originality. She interviewed Republican front-runner Donald Trump on the first program. It was Ben Carson’s turn on Sunday. “What’s your view on what’s happening around the globe and here in the U.S. in terms of what’s in the Bible? Do you think we’re at the end of days?” Ms. Attkisson asked the candidate. “You could guess that we are getting closer to that. You do have people who have a belief...

Writing on Twitter, Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said that four apparent stabbing incidents took place in Jerusalem on Monday. The spokesman said a Palestinian assailant was shot dead on Monday night after stabbing an Israeli soldier on a bus entering Jerusalem. The soldier was lightly injured.

    On the eve of the first Democratic presidential debate, President Obama is downplaying Hillary Rodham Clinton’s use of a private email server to conduct government business, saying she made a “mistake” but didn’t endanger national security. “I think she’d be the first to acknowledge that maybe she could have handled the original decision better and the disclosures more quickly,” Mr. Obama said in an interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes” broadcast Sunday night. “I don’t think it posed a national security problem. It was a mistake that she has acknowledged.” When interviewer Steve Kroft pointed out that the administration has prosecuted...

    Here’s yet another sign of how crazy the 2016 presidential race can be: A fake candidate received more votes in a straw poll than Jeb Bush. Honest. While Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul won the Republican Liberty Caucus straw poll with an “approval voting” of 57.1 percent, Bush finished in 13th place with a dismal 1.2 percent. Approval voting allows voters to give the nod to more than one candidate, and a number of them gave it to “Honest” Gil Fulbright, a very fake candidate, who finished a very real 1.5 percent of the vote.

    Here's an exchange from Bernie Sanders's appearance on "Meet the Press" on Sunday: CHUCK TODD: Are you a capitalist? @BernieSanders: No. I'm a Democratic Socialist. And, in those five words, Sanders showed why — no matter how much energy there is for him on the liberal left — he isn't getting elected president. Why? Because Democrat or Republican (or independent), capitalism remains a pretty popular concept — especially when compared to socialism. A 2011 Pew Research Center survey showed that 50 percent of people had a favorable view of capitalism, while 40 percent had an unfavorable one. Of socialism, just...

In his eyes, open-ended welfare has not only perpetuated poverty, its sustained a loyal voting bloc for certain politicians.“False compassion is patting them on the head and saying, ‘You can’t take care of yourself and I’m going to give you food stamps, a housing subsidy and free health care,'” Carson said according to the Gainesville Times. “And all the things you need so you can stay dependent and vote for me.’”His criticism of welfare is not new....

Clinton has said Mills helped her run the State Department’s sprawling bureaucracy, oversaw key priorities such as food safety, global health policy and LGBT rights, and acted as “my principal liaison to the White House on sensitive matters.” At State, she was unpaid, officially designated as a temporary expert-consultant — a status that allowed her to continue to collect outside income while serving as chief of staff.

But ever since Mr. Carson remarked on Sept. 20 that he did not think a Muslim should be president, then refused to retract the statement amid a furious blowback, his campaign has watched grass-roots support grow and donations pour in — and advisers have backtracked, deciding, in the words of one, to “let Carson be Carson.” Mr. Carson, a retired neurosurgeon seeking the Republican nomination,...

But that’s just part of it. The superior attitudes of these Muslims and their belief that they should get everything for free is wreaking havoc everywhere, from...

    The press are your enemy. Treat them that way and don't back down. Not only is it the way to get elected, it's the way to govern too. Last week Rob explained one of the main reasons Donald Trump continues to lead the Republican nomination race, in spite of having spent only $2 million on his campaign so far. In essence, Trump understands what traditional Republican candidates don’t about how to deal with the media: Don’t take their crap, don’t let them intimidate you and don’t be afraid to call them on their idiocy and dishonesty. Perhaps you’ve noticed that...

    Madison— Rebecca Bradley was sworn in as a state Supreme Court justice on Monday and soon afterward participated in oral arguments. Chief Justice Patience Roggensack made a brief mention of Bradley's appointment to the court just before arguments but did not dwell on it. "I think you will notice we have a full complement of justices," she told those gathered for arguments. GOP Gov. Scott Walker appointed Bradley to the bench Friday to replace Justice N. Patrick Crooks, who died Sept. 21. Crooks had said he was not going to run for re-election next year, and Bradley was one of...

    GOP front-runner Donald Trump says the refugees streaming out of the Middle East are mostly young men who could present a threat to U.S. national security if granted asylum. “I’ve been watching this migration, and I see these people. I mean, they’re mostly men, and they’re strong men,” Trump said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday. “They look like prime-time soldiers.” “But where are the women?” he asked. “You see some women, you see some children. But for the most part, I’m looking at these strong men. So you ask two things: number one, why aren’t they fighting for...

    I want to support Marco Rubio, but today I can’t. He may not have burned all his bridges to us conservatives, but he charred the hell out of them with his flirtation with the Gang of Eight and his disingenuous embrace of amnesty. Right now, a huge and decisive bloc of conservatives will not vote for him. So, can he ever win us back? Maybe. That depends on him. Entirely on him. Rubio has plenty going for him. For one thing, he can talk – Rubio can put a sentence together without sounding like he’s in a cage match with...
  • Bush 'Troubled' by Gay Marriage Issue (RE: San Fran weddings)

    WASHINGTON - President Bush (news - web sites) said Wednesday he was "troubled" by gay weddings in San Francisco and by legal decisions in Massachusetts that could clear the way for same-sex marriage. But he declined to say whether he is any closer to backing a constitutional ban on such vows. "I have watched carefully what's happening in San Francisco, where licenses were being issued, even though the law states otherwise," Bush said. "I have consistently stated that I'll support law to protect marriage between a man and a woman. Obviously these events are influencing my decision." "I am watching...

    In an interview with NBC's Kristen Welker, South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy offered his honest — and correct — assessment of his party in Congress. Here's the key bit: I think the House is bordering on ungovernable right now. ... Being Speaker is a very difficult job. We need to have a family conversation and sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before that conversation starts. We're getting close ... Now, Gowdy was explaining to Welker why he wouldn't be interested in the soon-to-be vacant job as speaker of the House. But his reasoning is almost certainly why Paul Ryan...
  • Dan Rather: Donald Trump Could Be Our Next President (watch out for exploding heads)

    Veteran newsman Dan Rather says Donald Trump could be headed to the White House. "I don't think it's outside the realm of possibility he gets elected," Rather, former "60 Minutes" correspondent and "CBS Evening News" anchor, told The Hollywood Reporter. "I said in the beginning he's not going to go away quickly. He isn't going to be the shooting star that goes away. "Because whatever else you think of Donald Trump, he is smart, he's very television smart. Donald Trump certainly has a good shot at the nomination. But Rather believes Trump must provide many more details on his ambitious...
