  • Obama-deferred Illegal immigrants go door-to-door campaigning for Hillary Clinton

    They can't vote, but they can tell you who to vote for. Back in 2012, Obama granted legal status to 3/4 of a million illegals under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Their legal status is supposed to be temporary, but anyone who watches Democrat politics knows that’s not the case. The plan, of course, is to keep them here forever, and Hillary has promised to do just that if she’s elected. So, they’re doing their best to help make it happen. They may not be allowed to vote but, as the Washington Post reports, many of Obama’s...

    We've spent our summer travelling America's byways on mostly US, State, County, & local roadways. Very little on interstate highways. Due to the changing dynamics over the summer I'll only comment on our west to east return over the past month. We've seen zero HRC yard signs, precious few Bernie bumper stickers, fewer HRC bumper stickers from the primaries, a few huge semi-trailer sized Trump signs, & between 5 and 10 small Trump yard signs. The road sides were littered with all kinds of local signs though. We were shocked when we noticed the lack of presidential yard signs across...

    In a swipe at Republicans in general and Donald Trump in particular, first lady Michelle Obama urged native American high school graduates Thursday to reject leaders who advocate “that we should be selfish.” “More than ever before, our world needs you,” Mrs. Obama told students at the Santa Fe Indian School in New Mexico. “And you don’t need your first lady to tell you that. All you have to do is tune into the news and you’ll see that right now, some of the loudest voices in our national conversation are saying things that go against every single one of...

    The Daily Beast is reporting that a small New Hampshire-based veterans charity has turned down a six figure check from Donald Trump. Liberty House turned Trump's money away because they objected to it being given to them in a public setting: a campaign rally for Trump. The Beast's Tim Mak has more: On Friday, Liberty House executive director Keith Howard received a call from a Trump campaign staffer, who conveyed that Trump would like to publicly present them with a six-figure check at a Londonderry rally on Monday, right before the Granite State primary.It's an enormous amount of money for...
  • 'I have at least 20 Muslim friends', says Donald Trump, but can't name them

    The Daily Telegraph ^ | February 7, 2015 | David Lawler, New Hampshire
    ..... The Republican presidential candidate has repeatedly said that "Muslims love him" despite his provocative policies, but has so far failed to name any single individual Muslim supporter. Asked by the Telegraph to elaborate, Mr Trump again ducked the question responding: "Oh, I could give you about 20 of them."... Donald Trump Junior, Mr Trump's son, was also unable to tell the Telegraph who his father's Muslim friends were, saying only that they had "completed a lot of business deals" in the Middle East.
  • CNN owes Ted Cruz an apology

    The American Thinker ^ | February 5, 2016 | William Tate
    CNN's broadside of Ted Cruz is wrong. The network has denied that it bears any responsibility for Cruz's camp spreading rumors that Ben Carson might be quitting the presidential race. CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin even went so far as to call Cruz's explanation "BS" on the air. Yet the network's claim can be true only in the most deceptive - in other words, the most Clintonian - sense. Instead of what the meaning of the word is is, CNN is parsing what the word indicate means. Somewhat ironically, the network rests much of its case on tweets rather than on-air...

    Red State ^ | February 4, 2016 | Leon H. Wolf
    There's a reason why Donald Trump is taking his loss in Iowa so hard - it's been devastating to his national standing. His standing in the polls might already be falling like a rock, and now it appears that the rolling concert tour that was his national campaign might be coming to an end. Now comes pretty convincing evidence that his crowds are shrinking, and he's trying to hide it (poorly). Trump was in Little Rock last night, and he tweeted a picture that seemed to show a typical Trump full house, and that specifically claimed that the crowd was...
  • White House promises 'non-traditional' State of the Union

    Associated Press ^ | Dec 17, 2015 6:47 PM EST | Julie Pace
    The White House is promising President Barack Obama will deliver a "non-traditional" State of the Union address next month, eschewing the standard litany of policy proposals for a broader discussion on the challenges facing the country. The format reflects the legislative reality for Obama's final year in office. Much of what the White House and the Republican-led Congress could realistically achieve in an election year is already underway, including discussions on criminal justice reform, and the ticking clock on Obama's presidency leaves little time to jumpstart major new initiatives. ...
  • Byron York: A brief theory of Trump's outrageousness

    The Washington Examiner ^ | November 23, 2015 | Byron York
    Donald Trump says a lot of things a lot of people consider outrageous. What is he doing? The first thing to remember is that many of Trump's supporters, and a large part of the American public in general, support the very statements others consider outrageous. Deport 11 million illegal immigrants? Many Americans, including almost everyone in the media, think that's crazy. But many other Americans agree with Trump. The recent brouhaha over whether Trump did or did not suggest a federal government database of all Muslims in the United States is another example. Trump didn't actually suggest it - the...

    This man is in second place nationally, and tied for first if you believe a few recent polls. He's steadily gained momentum and ground on Donald Trump, and now he's going to capitalize on his momentum by...stepping away from the campaign trail for two weeks for a hybrid fundraising push/book tour. ABC News reports: Republican presidential contender Dr. Ben Carson has put his public campaign events on hold for two more weeks to go on book tour for his new tome “A More Perfect Union” and catch up on fundraising events. The campaign has been careful to separate campaign events...

    Does the political class overrate the necessity of diplomacy experience in presidential candidates? n a strange convergence, there's agreement among the diehard right-wingers gathered at the Conservative Political Action Conference outside of Washington this week and left-wing pundits: Scott Walker is on top of the world. Well, maybe not the world—we'll get to that—but the Republican presidential sweepstakes. Although Jeb Bush boasts impressive momentum—nearly insurmountable momentum, in the judgment of D.C. tastemaker Mike Allen—CPAC is a good illustration of Bush's weaknesses. Bush was due to speak later Friday, but just the mention of his name drew boos earlier in the...

    National Review Online ^ | October 22, 2014 | Charles C. W. Cooke
    That a doyenne of the midafternoon MSNBC crowd is losing a gubernatorial race in deep-red Texas should come as a surprise to nobody. That she has been reduced to her present antics, however, was a little less expected. There is losing in politics, and then there is losing, and of late Davis has become sorely adept at the latter. In the space of a year, Joan of Arc has been transmogrified into Elmer Fudd, replete with ill-fitting hunting rifle, cartoonish faux-accent, and, now, a good deal of hapless frustration to boot. Among Davis’s recent offerings have been an attack ad...

    Dear Pres..ent Obama, I am writing a letter in truly wondering where I can attain to have a federal position of employment whereby I can receive the similar perks that you do. Never ending endeavours in Golf Outings. Never ending vacations. Never ending campaigning for whatever suits the fancy of the liberal - progressive agenda. Yet receive a three figure salary and never do anything that signifies work. I am truly concerned that you Mr. President are not concerned about America, But only concerned about a hedonistic lifestyle. By the way get to work and achieve something of substance once...

Not only was the national election in Florida for David Jolly a major victory, but here in deep blue Oregon we had a special election on Light Rail that Conservatives won. Not only was it a defeat for the crown jewel of liberalism, but we won the election against the Oregon Democrat machine which never loses. This election was in a town that runs pretty...
  • Email: IRS’s Lerner, Treasury Department secretly drafted new rules to restrict nonprofits

    The Daily Caller ^ | February 5, 2014 | Patrick Howley
    The Obama administration’s Treasury Department and former IRS official Lois Lerner conspired to draft new 501(c)(4) regulations to restrict the activity of conservative groups in a way that would not be disclosed publicly, according to the House Committee on Ways and Means. The Treasury Department and Lerner started devising the new rules “off-plan,” meaning that their plans would not be published on the public schedule. They planned the new rules in 2012, while the IRS targeting of conservative groups was in full swing, and not after the scandal broke in order to clarify regulations as the administration has suggested. The...

    I’ll concede here at the beginning that I’ve never worked on a political campaign. Nor do I have any experience in media relations, publicity, political communication or whatever else flacks do. I don’t know the nuances of trying to defuse controversy with a speech. But I have covered many political campaigns in Texas the past decade, so I know what it looks like when a campaign handles the press well. And the Wendy Davis operation is about the worst at media relations that I’ve ever seen. Her team’s mismanagement of the press is damaging her candidacy. The foul-ups began as...
