  • Trump visit did not help Luther Strange, new poll says; 4 polls give Roy Moore big lead

    A Senate poll released less than 24 hours before polls open Tuesday finds that former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore still has a substantial lead over U.S. Sen. Luther Strange in the Republican primary runoff. It also indicates that President Trump's visit to Huntsville for a campaign rally for Strange did not give the president's preferred candidate a noticeable boost in the eyes of voters.

    With apologies to Islander7, but I haven't seen an “Occasional Birdy Thread” in awhile, so I thought that I would post one. My pictures aren't as great as those posted by Islander7 or fidelis, but it's kind of like singing. All that you really need to do is to sing (or take bird pictures) well enough to entertain yourself.

    CASPER, Wyo. (Reuters) - Republican U.S. presidential hopeful Ted Cruz is expected to win most of the 14 delegates up for grabs on Saturday in Wyoming, likely besting rival Donald Trump, who made little effort to win the rural state, and further narrowing the gap in the race for the party's nomination. Cruz is trying to prevent Trump from obtaining the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the Republican nomination at the July convention in Cleveland. By continuing to rack up small wins, Cruz is gaining ground on the New York real estate mogul, who has thus far failed to shift...

    The New York Sun announced it is endorsing Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)97% in the Republican primary Tuesday. According to the Sun: It hasn’t been our normal practice to endorse in the primaries, but this year the vote, set for Tuesday, will take on outsized importance as we career toward a contested convention. The junior senator from Texas has emerged from a crowded field by dint of his fidelity to principles — limited, constitutional government, sound money, free markets, and a strong foreign policy — that couldn’t be at higher premium. They are the true New York Values. Regardless of the...

    MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin, March 31, 2016 – The Wisconsin Jesuit university that suspended a tenured professor after his blog post exposed a student’s apparent harassment by a graduate assistant for not supporting homosexual “marriage” has moved closer toward firing the instructor. Marquette University suspended Political Science Professor John McAdams without pay during Holy Week and said it intends to terminate him if he doesn’t apologize for the 2014 blog post. The suspension is effective April 1, extending through the fall 2016 semester.

    Increasingly, I’ve had people ask me, both in person and in writing (via Facebook, primarily), what I will do if faced with a decision between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in the general election. That question deserves a sober answer, and I will do my best today to achieve that. What I say won’t convince everyone, but it will be an honest response. In the manner of good writing, as I teach my students, I begin with my thesis: I will never vote for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump in a general election. That stance will obviously raise genuine...

    SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney thinks "Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud" and that he's "playing the American public for suckers," according to prepared remarks provided by Romney to CNN. Romney, the party’s nominee in 2012, will urge Americans "to make the right choices" and not support the GOP front runner during a speech he'll give today at 11:30 a.m. ET at the University of Utah’s Hinckley Institute of Politics Forum.

    We love him because he's the fearless mouthpiece of our anger, the John Wayne of political incorrectness, galloping to our rescue with guns blazing against the PC -enforcers who are paralyzing our nation. But John Wayne stood for truth, justice, and the American Way. Donald Trump his entire life has stood for the very same self-serving pay-to-play corruption and influence peddling he now says he will eradicate from government.

    Thanks for standing with me all of these years. Your steadfast support and commitment to fighting important conservative battles has meant so much to Karen and me. As you may have heard, I announced tonight that I will be ending my Presidential campaign. While the results were not what we had hoped, the experience of running for President was tremendously gratifying and something I won't soon forget. And as Karen and I discussed leaving the Presidential race, we also talked about who we should support now that I am stepping aside. There are many qualified, conservative candidates in the race...

    As one listed as a potential delegate for Rick Santorum from Tennessee, I wanted to say a few words since there are reports that he will possibly be dropping out this evening (and I will be out of pocket for much of the evening, including the time of his supposed announcement). I have been a Rick Santorum supporter for years. I make absolutely no apology for that. Over the years he hasn't just talked the talk, but he has taken the arrows. He has had the courage of his convictions. He's taken the arrows from the left perhaps more than...

    Rick Santorum has been saying the same things for 20 years on immigration, abortion, taxes, marriage, and every other issue; his is a record you can trust. Rick Santorum, the 2012 Iowa caucus winner, may be languishing in the polls, but he remains undaunted. While most of the GOP presidential candidates were hunkered down on Thursday doing debate preparation, the former Pennsylvania senator was still working the state hard. Santorum became a household name in Iowa in 2012 when he visited all 99 counties. He wowed social conservatives and still does with his unwavering conservative stances on social issues.(snip) He...

    Frontrunner Donald Trump invited fellow GOP presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum to attend his fundraiser for veterans, after the two expressed interest in attending to support a good cause. Trump even brought them on stage with him to discuss issues involving veterans. Trump said he had got to know both Huckabee and Santorum "on the trail, as they say." "We have Mike Huckabee sitting right here." Trump said to the crowd asking Huckabee to stand, adding he's a "great guy." "Where's Rick?" Trump then questioned. "Come up here for a second." Trump then pointed to Mrs. Huckabee and...

    Moderator Martha MacCallum twisted facts during the GOP undercard debate in Iowa when she turned to pro-life former Sen. Rick Santorum and asked, "Carly Fiorina was the only one of the GOP candidates to attend the March for Life in Washington last week. Where were you?" The premise of MacCallum's question was deceptive, at best. As Breitbart News reported, Fiorina was the only GOP presidential candidate invited to speak at the March for Life on January 22. The committee that organizes the march set the theme of "Pro-Life, Pro-Woman Go Hand-in-Hand" as a way to counter the "war on women"...

Speaking to Megyn Kelly on "The Kelly File" on Tuesday night, Perkins said, "no one knows the constitution like Ted Cruz." "I know him. I've worked with him. I've watched him in the Senate. If everyone gets along with you in this city, you're in trouble," he added.

    Four years ago, the Iowa caucuses were very, very good to former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum. In a race where seemingly every Republican candidate took a turn at the head of the polls, Santorum peaked at just the right time. He won a razor-thin race in Iowa, proclaimed "game on" to a caucus-night crowd, and went on to be 2012's GOP runner-up. Things are different this time for the 2012 caucus victor With poll numbers low and consistent relegation to undercard debates, Santorum often finds himself justifying his campaign's continued existence. "People say, why are you still doing this?" Santorum...

    Rick Santorum was a guest on KCWI's Great Day on Tuesday morning. Santorum talked about a number off issues in his 17-minute interview with the KCWI morning team, but when Meteorologist Jason Parkin asked what differentiates him from Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Santorum explained it was his view on marriage. "Marriage is probably the big thing. Ted has the position that states can do whatever they want with marriage," Santorum stated. "I don't believe that's true. Abraham Lincoln said that states don't have the right to do wrong. Santorum went on to explain his position in depth. I would offer...

    Caffeinated Thoughts ^ | January 2, 2016 | Adam Graham
    In the debate over Ted Cruz's stand that the issue of the sanctity of marriage should be strictly left up to the states, those who favor a Federal Marriage Amendment such as Governor Mike Huckabee and Senator Rick Santorum are accused of wanting to trample on states rights. The truth is neither of these gentlemen is opposed to federalism. Federalism is a great heritage of our nation. It allows different states to operate according to the dictates of each state's citizenry. Take the issue of gambling. My home state of Idaho forbids casinos but allows the lottery while our neighboring...

    With just two major Republican debates remaining before the Iowa presidential caucuses, Donald Trump has been remarkably lucky. The only major candidate who could actually inflict lasting harm on the vulgar poster child for inherited wealth, and the only one who could readily attract and hold some of Trump's blue collar constituency, is the only one banished - by the idiotic, poll-driven debate rules to which the feckless Republican National Committee acquiesced - from sharing a single stage with The Donald. For reasons both stylistic and substantive, Pennsylvania's former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum could eviscerate Trump in a direct encounter....
