  • EXCLUSIVE: New O’Keefe Video Shows How Easy It Is To Commit Voter Fraud In New Hampshire [VIDEO]

    The Daily Caller ^ | 2/10/2016 | Chuck Ross
    Explosive new video released by muckraking journalist James O'Keefe exposes just how easy it is for non-residents to vote in New Hampshire's primary, despite a change in the state's laws aimed at curbing voter fraud. The video -- which was shared exclusively with The Daily Caller -- shows poll workers advising undercover journalists working for O'Keefe's Project Veritas Action (PVA) how to skirt the rules in order to vote as non-residents. The damning video also shows Bernie Sanders campaign staffers encouraging undercover journalists to claim false addresses in order to vote in the primary. O'Keefe pulled off a New Hampshire...

    <p>BOSTON (AP) — Two legal scholars squared off in a public debate on Friday to settle whether Republican Ted Cruz is eligible to become president. Spoiler alert: They didn't settle it.</p> <p>But the debate at Harvard Law School underscored that conflicting interpretations of the U.S. Constitution can produce different answers. The question has been in the national spotlight since Republican rival Donald Trump suggested that Cruz, who was born in Canada to an American mother, isn't legally qualified to be president.</p>
  • Why Marco Rubio was real winner in Iowa

    02/02/2016 9:58:18 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 38 replies
    To be sure, Sen. Ted Cruz accomplished something no other GOP candidate this year has been able to do. He made Donald Trump a loser. No amount of humility or grace will change the fact The Donald was handed his first "L" at the hands of that "Canadian" nobody likes. And it wasn't even close. Yet, even as Cruz might like to revel in this history-making night in Iowa, the storyline has shifted away from him to the emergence of Marco Rubio as a viable alternative in the GOP race. Not only did Trump lose to Cruz, he almost lost...

    It's critical to start by separating foolish and even potentially shady behavior from criminal. It should be clear to any objective observer that it was an enormous error for Clinton to use a homemade server for all of her emails while she was in a position that regularly handles and assesses the most sensitive of government secrets. She had admitted as much (although now she appears to be backtracking from that initial mea culpa). It is also indisputable that it was neither a crime nor even a violation of State Department procedure for Clinton to have used personal email for...

    Reuters ^ | 1/19/15 | Akhil Reed Amar
    (snip) The problem is not, as some commentators have claimed, a legal doctrine known as "standing" -- a rule that requires that a person who comes to court must have a proper legal interest at stake in the litigation. Rather, the biggest barrier is a principle of judicial restraint known as "the political question doctrine." A key idea underlying this doctrine is that the Constitution itself, in its text or spirit, sometimes takes a certain sort of constitutional question away from ordinary courts and makes some other decision-maker the real judge -- a special court for a special question.

    Last Wednesday night, an hour-long interview with Hillary Clinton, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, aired on television. This alone is remarkable. Few candidates at this level, at this stage of the election cycle, grant any media outlet that much time. Even more remarkable: This sit-down wasn't with "60 Minutes," Charlie Rose or "Meet the Press." Instead, Clinton took questions from little-known former rock 'n roll groupie and celebrity-hanger-on Amanda de Cadenet, who has a talk show on the Lifetime network.

    1. He is still indebted to Goldman. (“As for the Goldman Sachs loan, it remains outstanding, though the balance has been reduced to between $50,000 and $100,000.”) Goldman, among other things, employs hundreds of workers on H-1B visas. Cruz used to advocate a huge increase in the number of H-1B visas, without, of course, saying he was on the hook to Goldman. Now, of course, Cruz wants to end H-1B visas. Maybe he should have taken out a loan from a bank that employed more Americans. 2. He didn’t simply “forget” to file the disclosure; he made up a self-reverential...

And boy they sure think they have one with Bill Clinton and the supposed "hypocrisy" of feminists who don't agree that his wife's career should be derailed because of allegations of sexual harassment and assault made against him in the 1990s. At stake is this alleged unfairness that while some men accused of sexual abuse get in actual trouble for it, Clinton walks around free and even gets to campaign for...

    NBC News ^ | 11/28/2015 | by PERRY BACON JR.
    Donald Trump, as many people on the left and even some on the right agree, is undoubtedly and intentionally making controversial remarks on cultural, racial and religious issues. But what's emerged as the more complicated question is whether Trump's supporters agree with all of his remarks. Are at least some of Trump's backers, as many liberals argue, racist or intolerant? In interviews, Trump supporters often say they like the mogul's blunt approach, that he "tells it like it is," without always detailing what "it is" that Trump is explaining so clearly. In some ways, the Trump question is an extension...

After all, despite the fact that American Christians are the most entitled and privileged people in the history of the planet, many feel persecuted.One of the more endearing customs of many of our small town Iowa churches on Sunday morning is story time.

Still, Trump is right about one thing, at least: As he told the Saturday Night Live audience back in 2004 when he first served as guest host, “I’m a ratings machine.” That’s the likely reason NBC has invited Trump to return as guest host on SNL Nov. 7, despite cutting ties with him in June.

"I call him a socialist-slash-communist, because that's what he is." Well, no. The terms "socialist" and "communist" are often confused, thanks in large part to the Cold War. Layer on top of that the nuance of the term "democratic socialist," which is how Sanders describes himself, and it's easy to see why people might generally be confused...

    At least two reporters have had their press credentials denied by Donald Trump's campaign staffers within the last week. There is speculation that Trump ordered the move because two major news outlets have been publishing stories about his presidential campaign in the entertainment section instead of under political news. According to CNN, Huffington Post reporter Samantha-Jo Roth and Jason Noble of the Des Moines Register were told that they would not get credentials for Trump events "from now on," but they would be able to attend as part of the general public. http://www.starpulse.com/news/index.php/2015/09/21/two-reporters-banned-from-donald-trump

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - For months, the U.S. State Department has stood behind its former boss Hillary Clinton as she has repeatedly said she did not send or receive classified information on her unsecured, private email account, a practice the government forbids. While the department is now stamping a few dozen of the publicly released emails as "Classified," it stresses this is not evidence of rule-breaking. Those stamps are new, it says, and do not mean the information was classified when Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner in the 2016 presidential election, first sent or received it.

In the wake of Trump's racist remarks suggesting that Mexican immigrants are rapists and criminals, the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA) is planning a demonstration...

    Esquire ^ | July 2nd, 2015 | By Charles P. Pierce
    The symptoms of the prion disease are beginning to become so obvious that even some of our more prominent pundits are beginning to notice them. For example, even former Karl Rove life-coach Ron Fournier has noticed the severe lack of Abraham Lincolns in the current GOP presidential candidates. And noted climate-denialist and baseball drone George Effing Will has staked out the bold position that many of these candidates have gone so far around the bend that they've crossed some kind of termination barrier. It is, therefore, especially disheartening that Cruz, who clerked for Chief Justice William Rehnquist and who is...

    I have had enough of smug liberal elites wrapped in their "Celebrate Diversity" banners tearing down minority conservatives. Look in the mirror, media and academia bigots. Your own reflexive racism and divisive rhetoric are poisoning public discourse. There's nothing "progressive" about attacking the children and grandchildren of immigrants who proudly embrace an American identity. We are not "self-hating." You just hate what we believe. The most recent grenade tossed by the jack-booted Enforcers of Ethnic Authenticity came from The Washington Post this week. The Beltway fish-wrapper hyped a 2,100-word investigation of GOP Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal with a condescending quote...

    In n 2013 Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal called on the GOP to stop being the stupid party. A former Rhodes scholar with serious policy chops, he appeared perfectly positioned to elevate the discussion of ideas. Instead, Jindal has chosen to run in 2016 as the stupid partys standard-bearer. As Jindal prepares to make his White House bid official on Wednesday, he is struggling to break the one percent mark in national polls. That puts him a dozen places behind the top-tier triumvirate of Walker, Bush and Rubio. Its possible Jindal will emerge from the back of the pack at some...

    I think to every African-American in the country its a symbolism of slavery to them and now its a symbol of murder for this young man and so I think its times to put it in a museum. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul says he believes the Confederate battle flag is inescapably a symbol of human bondage and slavery and needs to go. No, I agree, I think the flag is inescapably a symbol of human bondage and slavery, and particularly when people use it obviously for murder and to justify hated so vicious that you would kill somebody I...

    A search of APImages.com for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)93% no longer yields a handful of photos from photojournalist Charlie Neibergall wherein the barrel of a gun on a poster points to the U.S. Senator and presidential candidates head.(snip) UPDATE: AP Vice President and Director of Media Relations Paul Colford confirms that the news organization has decided to prevent future licensing of the photos showing guns pointed at Cruz. Breitbart News asked whether AP had encountered any outside pressure from politicians to remove the photos. Colford replied, this was entirely an in-house decision.

    I've been seeing this fake Cruz "news story" making the rounds on Facebook and it's already bamboozled some of my less-sharp pals. There's a fake USATODAY website out there (usatoday.com.co), with the look of USATODAY, that claims Ted Cruz stated that U.S. Military veterans should "self-fund via sales of cookies, like the Girl Scouts."

    As journalists the most important thing we have is our credibility and integrity. We maintain that, in part, through transparency with our audience, our colleagues and our critics. That is why I am disclosing that my daughter, Paola, has accepted a position working with Hillary Clintons presidential campaign. [blather snipped] Like many reporters who have parents, siblings or other family members that are active in politics, this will not change how I approach my duty as a journalist. I will continue to report with complete independence and ask the tough questions, the same way I have done for the last...

    Hillary Clinton spoke about the shooting at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina by posing the following questions: How many innocent people in our country from little children to church members to movie theater attendees? How many people do we need to see cut down before we act? In the first question, Hillary makes obvious references to the shootings at Sandy Hook, the theater shooting in Colorado as well as both the shooting at the Sikh Temple in Wisconsin and last night's attack. Hillary speaks of little children, church members and movie theater attendees. But what about our...

    The Social Memo ^ | 6/16/15 | Aurelius
    A new feminist organization calling itself "Stop Patriarchy" has vowed to destroy "Christian fascist woman-haters," as well as other things it claims oppress women, including Churches and the United States military. Writing on their website, StopPatriarchy.org, the group explains that their goal is to "FIGHT to STOP the enslavement of women." The way to do that, according to the feminist group, is to fight against and destroy oppressors. "Christian fascist woman-haters are violently hacking away at abortion rights and even birth control, slamming women backwards," they explain. Running from June 15 until June 19, the group is running a campaign...
