    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said where GOP candidates stand on amnesty and immigration will be “huge” in determining which candidate she potentially endorses in this election cycle if she decides to make an endorsement that may well determine who will win the GOP presidential nomination. Palin praised Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL)82% —who is the top champion of American workers in Congress—saying that he is “so good on immigration.” She added that it is probably “his number one issue that he thinks is most impacting on the future of America.” “He’s going to pick one candidate who’s strongest on that...

    Blue Origin, the private space firm owned by Amazon's Jeff Bezos, has just dropped a huge gauntlet in the race to develop a reusable rocket. It just launched its New Shepard space vehicle (video, below), consisting of a BE-3 rocket and crew capsule, to the edge of space at a suborbital altitude of 100.5 kilometers (62 miles). The capsule then separated and touched down beneath a parachute, but more importantly, the BE-3 rocket also started its own descent. After the rockets fired at nearly 5,000 feet, it made a a controlled vertical landing at a gentle 4.4 mph. So far,...

    The United States believes Russia's incursion into Turkish airspace on Tuesday likely lasted only a matter of seconds before Turkey shot down a Russian warplane, a U.S. official said, saying the assessment was based on preliminary indications. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the United States was still investigating the incident.

    A former chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party says Donald Trump should not be on the Republican presidential primary ballot on Feb. 9 because the GOP frontrunner has not proven he is a registered Republican and has expressed views “inconsistent” with the state and national party’s platform and by laws. In his usual, understated fashion, Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski responded by saying that if this move were approved, “Mr. Trump’s supporters would probably riot in the streets of New Hampshire.” Normally I’d shrug off a comment like that as typical campaign rhetoric, but in this case it’s probably...

    GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump's latest video, posted online Monday, portrays Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton laughing over flaming images of the Benghazi attack. "Hillary has been having a laugh at our expense for years," reads text at the beginning of the video, followed immediately with a series of video clips of the former secretary of State chuckling. Clinton's laughter can be heard while several news clips fly across the screen highlighting several controversies, from Whitewater to the recent federal investigation into her private email arrangement while at State. The final clip of Clinton laughing — taken from her testimony...

    Sunday, in a single hour, the moral and factual disaster that was “Meet the Press,” revealed more about the insulated, echo-chambered, and factually-challenged DC Media than any subject the Sunday show covered. For the past week, “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd and the National Journal’s Ron Fournier, have been publicly and sanctimoniously blasting away at what they’ve described, in so many words, as hateful and divisive rhetoric coming from the Republican presidential field. Fournier is famous for demanding Republicans answer for what others say. Throughout much of last week, Todd used his daily First Read column and appearances on...

    “Look, I think it is absolutely vital for every country, every leader to send a signal that the viciousness of a handful of killers does not stop the world from doing vital business,” Obama said, when asked on Sunday whether the attacks would have an effect on the mood of the summit. Obama has repeatedly emphasized the damaging effect that climate change has on national security in preparation for the summit. During a Coast Guard graduation speech in May, Obama emphasized that the recruits would be facing the threat global warming. “Climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security,...

    Speaking at a news conference before leaving Malaysia to return home at the end of a 10-day overseas trip, Mr. Obama said he expected the Pentagon’s inspector general to investigate allegations that significant changes were made to reports from analysts at the United States Central Command, known as Centcom. “One of the things I insisted on the day I walked into the Oval Office was that I don’t want intelligence shaded by politics. I don’t want it shaded by a desire to tell a feel-good story,” he said. He added: “I have made it repeatedly clear to all my top...

    When Islamic State fighters overran a string of Iraqi cities last year, analysts at United States Central Command wrote classified assessments for military intelligence officials and policy makers that documented the humiliating retreat of the Iraqi Army. But before the assessments were final, former intelligence officials said, the analysts’ superiors made significant changes. In the revised documents, the Iraqi Army had not retreated at all. The soldiers had simply “redeployed.” Such changes are at the heart of an expanding internal Pentagon investigation of Centcom, as Central Command is known, where analysts say that supervisors revised conclusions to mask some of...

    When asked if agents were on heightened alert in light of the terrorist attacks in Beirut and Paris, one said, “Oh yeah. I know it’s coming.” Frustration levels inside the Border Patrol have reached a peak, say some agents, with concerns that they are often effectively kept from doing the job they were trained to do: stop illegal traffic from crossing the border. “We have people from all over the world coming to the Mexican border and claiming asylum. Since they’re not from Mexico, we can’t send them back over,” says one agent, speaking of performing his job on a...

    So when you look at the various scenarios for the 2016 general election you reach the following conclusion: the upside for the GOP is much better than any upside for the Dems, and the downside for the Dems is much, much worse than any downside for the GOP. And for the Dems, any positive election result is totally contingent on winning the presidential race, while if the GOP loses the presidential race they still control the House and have majority of governors and state legislative bodies. Today the GOP controls more than 30 governors offices and state legislatures. If the...

    Pushing back against efforts to bar Syrian refugees from resettling in the U.S., President Barack Obama vowed Saturday that his country will be a welcoming place for millions fleeing violence around the world "as long as I'm president. Brushing off refugee worries at home, Obama crouched alongside migrant children on Saturday and declared they are the opposite of terrorists wreaking havoc from Paris to Mali. Working to put a human face on the refugee crisis, he said, "They're just like our kids." The refugees Obama encountered at a school for poor children in Malaysia were not from Syria, and unlike...

Obama is "arrogant," O'Reilly said Wednesday on his program "The O'Reilly Factor," and doesn't think the rising threat of terrorism rises to the level of crisis. "It's the way he believes," O'Reilly said, adding that Obama is a "passive president" who believes progress is being made.

Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz has explained the details of Ryan’s anticipated “bait and switch”: Instead of listening to their constituents and following the calls of 30 governors to shut down Islamic refugee resettlement, Republicans are about to pull the classic bait and switch: pass a phony standalone bill and decline to defund it in the budget bill… Remember Obamacare, executive amnesty,...

    Our military has the resources to shatter ISIS, but political correctness has penetrated so deep into the Pentagon that, even should a president issue the one-word order, “Win!,” our initial actions would be cautious and halting. We’ve bred a generation of military leaders afraid of being prosecuted by their own government for the kind of errors inevitable in wartime. Instead of “leaning forward in the foxhole,” our leaders lean on lawyers. If lawyers had had to approve our World War II target lists, we couldn’t have won. War is never clean or easy, and the strictures imposed on our military...

    Charles Koch, the billionaire CEO of Koch Industries, says welfare is making people’s lives worse, but he’s not talking about welfare for low-income parents or the elderly. He’s aiming at a much bigger target. He’s talking about welfare for some of the most valuable companies in the world in the form of government handouts such as tax breaks and subsidies. Before you go on a rant about how Koch’s own company—the second largest private company in the United States behind Cargill—benefits from the very same corporate benefits, he readily acknowledges that fact.

    President Barack Obama said Monday that sending troops into Syria to fight ISIS would be a "mistake," but not allowing Syrian refugees into the United States would betray American values. Obama reaffirmed the need to accept refugees from Middle East war zones who are flooding into Europe. "At the same time, all of our countries have to ensure our security, and as president, my first priority is the safety of the American people," he said. "Even as we accept more refugees — including Syrians — we do so only after subjecting them to rigorous screenings and security checks. We also...

    Bernie Sanders speaks passionately about inequality, campaign finance and other serious issues that Americans should care about. Martin O’Malley has a record of progressive accomplishment as governor of Maryland. But can you imagine either in the Oval Office? Little in Friday’s second Democratic debate suggested that either man’s candidacy is more than a mirage. Despite Sanders’s rhetorical fire, he once again failed to demonstrate the range or the realism the presidency requires. He began the night with a couple obligatory lines on the Paris attacks, but he pivoted back to his one-note message about economic inequality and billionaires so quickly...

    A few hours before the catastrophic attack in Paris, President Obama had announced that ISIS was now “contained,” a recalibration of his earlier assessments of “on the run” and “Jayvees” from a few years back. In the hours following the attack of jihadist suicide bombers and mass murderers in Paris, the Western press talked of the “scourge of terrorism” and “extremist violence”. Who were these terrorists and generic extremists who slaughtered the innocent in Paris — anti-abortionists, Klansmen, Tea-party zealots? This sickness in the West manifests itself in a variety of creepy ways — to hide bothersome reality by inventing...

I'm 27, so this advice will probably be useful for most millennials — anyone aged 19 to 34. His answer was surprisingly simple.

Pickens, the author of "The First Billion Is The Hardest", explained that you "have to be skilled at something unless you want to go out...

An openly gay singer, Who Is Fancy (yes, that is what he calls himself), is set to perform his new song, "Boys Like You," with Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor on the reality competition show's November 23 episode. The song is about a man falling in love with another man, so the singer's choreographer wanted to have two men dancing with each other in the performance. But TMZ reported that ABC wasn't having it.

    Westerners who left their homelands for a new life in the Islamic State caliphate seem to have taken at least one tradition with them: airing their gripes on social media. Complaints about the life under ISIS tracked by the Middle East Media Research Institute, which analyzed social media sent from inside the so-called caliphate, focus on Western defectors' finding a severe lack of creature comforts. No Starbucks, rude help at beauty salons, lousy restaurants, slow Internet and bad cellphone service are among the common complaints that paint life under the terrorist organization as uncomfortable, even for Westerners who signed up...

While these sugary and salt-laden foods may not be good for your health, the scientists found no significant difference in how much of these foods either overweight or normal weight people consumed. The real problem, according to the researchers: too many Americans eat too much. "These are foods that are clearly bad for you and if you eat too much of them they will make you fat, but it doesn't appear to be the main driver that is...

It is a brazen–and brilliant–move, one that demonstrates the difference between politics-as-usual and the bold reform Trump is promising his supporters. (One does not have to be a Trump supporter–indeed, this author has at times been a critic–to recognize that.) ABC News released a draft list of the other campaigns’ demands. It is rather underwhelming–a demand for petty guarantees, such as a promise that moderators will not ask the candidates to raise...

    A controversial book cover is the latest flashpoint to lay bare the divisions in the Democratic base over the Clinton candidacy. The forthcoming book, “My Turn,” by Nation Magazine Contributing Editor Doug Henwood, critiques the former secretary of state’s decades-long political career, calling out her foreign policy positions and purported connections to big-money interests, among other contentious points. And the book cover’s flamboyant illustration – featuring a stoic Hillary Clinton, in a blood-red dress, pointing a gun at the reader – has sparked a heated debate among her supporters and detractors.

    Trump promised that in his administration, veterans would receive better healthcare more quickly. "The plan will ensure our veterans get the care they need, wherever and whenever they need it," he said. Trump said that he would institute policies that would see Veterans Affairs (VA) facilities competing with non-VA hospitals. He said that under his plan, any veteran could go to a doctor that accepts Medicare and receive care. In a winding indictment of the VA system, he targeted Veterans Health Administration hospitals that came under fire in the last year for keeping long wait lists of veterans who needed...

Bannon’s documentary The Undefeated to “get a clue” about the media treatment she received during the 2008 campaign. “John Nolte – we need to thank God you’re there, calling out unethical reporters,” Palin wrote on her Facebook page. “NBC – you need to fire your unethical reporter, John Harwood. John Harwood – you need...

    And if the only ammo you've got with Trump is, "He's gonna blow it, he's gonna fade, he's gonna step in it, he's not gonna last, he doesn't really mean it, he's gonna get out," and that's all you can do, then you're not doing your job. It's not hard to explain Trump's success. It's really rather easy. That's why when I see The Politico story, "The Incredible Shrinking Trump." In their dreams. They haven't the slightest idea what they're talking about. "The Incredible Shrinking Trump -- The usual blustery billionaire offered a downright demure performance at the third GOP...

    117 Wednesday, presumptive Speaker of the House Congressman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)58% vowed things will be different under his leadership. Ryan said, This begins a new day in the House of Representatives. Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)37% served with humility and distinction and we owe him a debt of gratitude. But tomorrow we are turning the page. We are not going to have a House that looked like it looks the last few years. We are going to move forward. We are going to unify. Our party has lost its vision and we are going to replace it with a vision....

    The spending caps that they negotiated with Obama? They've blown those up. The one thing that they won, spending caps, they got rid of them themselves in this deal. I'm trying to understand, are they totally in debt to K Street? Do they all have jobs waiting for them on K Street? It doesn't compute here. Who are these people in the House Republican leadership? What are they? I'll tell you what I've concluded, and it's something that I have forecast before, mentioned before. We've even discussed it on this program. I think what's going on in Washington right now...

    For another thing, conservatives will almost surely see this as a betrayal. The administration came up with the idea of sequestration, and it turned out to be only tangible victory Republicans could claim on spending. You might remember the 2010 Pledge to America that promised to roll back government spending to pre-stimulus/bailout levels, cutting at least $100 billion in the first year after taking power. Republicans failed to achieve this improbable goal. And almost every year since, government spending has gone up, though the GOP keeps adding seats by promising to achieve the opposite. So the central question is: how...

    Merely voting against the deal is not enough its outrageous for the GOP to operate in this manner to begin with. It should now be obvi57888_sidebarous that Boehner is leaving the House because he knew he was about to give away the store to Obama on this spending deal. He figured this was such a lopsided bargain in Obamas favor that it would probably end his career anyway. So he figured hed get out ahead of the story and announce his departure before people realized he had basically gone over to Obamas side. And Im very disappointed in McConnell....

    This surrender of congressional power would allow Republicans and Democrats to shrug their shoulders every time voters protest when Obama ticks another item off his political bucket-list Accept Muslim refugees? Offer a new type of amnesty to illegals? Impose tougher curbs on energy use? Free domestic criminals? Convert another region into national park? Reduce military standards to boost weaker female soldiers or force salutes of sex-blurring cross-dressers? Expand Obamacare? The draft deal does not include any mention of curbs on immigrants, migrants, refugees, work permits, border, parole, or sentencing, Planned Parenthood, or Obamas nuclear deal with Iran. It would...

    In 2012, Savage admits, I told conservative voters who were not going to vote to hold their nose and vote for Romney. He expected that when Republicans regained power in congress, Our work would begin and we would have to hold their feet to the fire. Unfortunately, that didnt work very well, he acknowledged. They have no feet to put to the fire. Theyre footless. The 73-year-old Bronx native segued into the premise of his book: Were down to the wireGovernment Zero: No Borders. No Language. No Culture.

    NEW YORK TIMES via Breitbart ^ | OCTOBER 24,2015 | Jonathan Martin and Matt Flegenheimer writing at The New York Times:
    Former President George Bush, 91 and frail, is straining to understand an election season that has, for his son and the Republican Party, lurched sharply and stunningly off script. And he is often bewildered by what he sees. Im getting old, he tells friends, appraising todays politics, at just the right time. These are confounding days for the Bush family and the network of advisers, donors and supporters who have helped sustain a political dynasty that began with the Senate victory by Prescott Bush, the older Mr. Bushs father, in Connecticut 63 years ago. They have watched the rise of...

    The news media is full of stories about deserving illegal immigrants who come to the U.S. and are law-abiding contributors to society. But theres a flip side to illegal immigration and its not well covered in the news media: tens of thousands of illegal immigrants committing serious crimes including murdering American citizens on U.S. soil, and then released to commit more. Thats one of the big reasons to watch Full Measure this Sunday. Youll be shocked to hear how many illegal immigrants commit serious felonies in the U.S. and then go on to commit more crimes, including murder....
  • Billionaire Trump attracts enthusiasm of small-dollar donors

    Trump has taken in 73,942 contributions, a total that surpasses several of his GOP rivals, despite the billionaire businessman's early pledge to finance his own campaign. Financial reports filed last week also show that more than 70 percent of the $3.9 million he raised from July through September came from people giving $200 or less. That rate of small-donor contributions is second only to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who's in the Democratic race. The average Trump contribution was $50.46, his campaign said. The contributors are in small towns, suburbs and big cities. He's raised money from hundreds of retirees, ranchers,...
