  • Trump encouraged Conway to trash Romney on TV over the weekend

    Mr. Trump, in a statement emailed Monday evening by his spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, said: “Kellyanne came to me and asked whether or not she could go public with her thoughts on the matter. I encouraged her to do so. Most importantly she fully acknowledged there is only one person that makes the decision. She has always been a tremendous asset and that will continue.”

    If Donald Trump dredges up former President Bill Clinton's history of extramarital affairs to use it against his Democratic rival, it could be a risky move the GOP nominee amid the new storm he stoked over his own comments about and treatment of women. In his first debate on Monday against Hillary Clinton, Trump boasted that he had valiantly stayed away from the topic despite an inner dialogue with himself about whether to bring up the Clintons' marital woes. Before the debate, he had floated inviting Gennifer Flowers, who allegedly had an affair with the former president in the 1970s,...

    Washington Examiner ^ | January 24, 2012 | Byron York
    "Given all the attention to the ethics matter, it's worth asking what actually happened back in 1995, 1996, and 1997. The Gingrich case was extraordinarily complex, intensely partisan, and driven in no small way by a personal vendetta on the part of one of Gingrich's former political opponents. It received saturation coverage in the press; a database search of major media outlets revealed more than 10,000 references to Gingrich's ethics problems during the six months leading to his reprimand. It ended with a special counsel hired by the House Ethics Committee holding Gingrich to an astonishingly strict standard of behavior,...

    Natural Born Citizen (blog) ^ | June 24, 2011 | Leo Donofrio
    Since my last report, many people have asked why the definition in Minor v. Happersett of a “natural-born citizen” (as a person born in the US to parents who are citizens) is binding legal precedent. The answer is in the Court’s holding that Virginia Minor was a US citizen…because she was born in the US to parents who were citizens. That part of the actual holding is listed in the official syallbus of the case. And furthermore, Minor was the first case to hold that women are equal citizens to men. To this day, that case is still cited as...

The comment comes as Mr. McCain returned from a one on one meeting with President Obama at the White House. The Arizona Republican said he viewed the meeting as a sign of increasing bipartisanship on Capitol Hill, adding that his meeting with the president was “cordial” and that Mr. Obama...

    Bookmark this thread because you might have to refer back to if an October Surprise "Hate Crime" develops late in this election season. The Democrats are desperate and I would not be surprised to see them pull an October Surprise yet again. My strong feeling is that they, or some leftwing loony loner, will stage a fake Hate Crime that makes it look like someone in the Tea Party movement was the culprit. My guess is that it would be very late in the campaign season so no time to investigate. Of course, the Democrats would piously howl that the...

    CNBC ^ | Aug. 4, 2010 | Peter Morici
    Friday, forecasters expect the Labor Department to report the economy shed 70 thousand jobs in July and unemployment rose to 9.6 percent. The massive permanent expansion in federal spending and regulatory oversight built into President Obama's budget is discouraging private hiring by raising fears of higher taxes and regulation. The president's moratorium on deep water drilling, though popular with environmental fundamentalists, kills jobs two ways-directly, by laying off workers in the oil and gas industry and indirectly, by sending too many consumer dollars abroad that could be spent here.

    Politically savvy gun owners have long distrusted President Barack Obama, and for perfectly fair reasons—even (or perhaps especially) after he went out of his way to tell them that lawful gun owners have nothing to fear from his administration. Perhaps, Obama seemed to be gently suggesting, they could cool it with the spike in gun purchases since he won the election. December showed a 24 percent rise in FBI instant background checks for gun purchases from the previous December, and there was a 49 percent such hike the week of his election. Obama’s famous gaffe about “bitter” people who “cling”...
