    Neoconservative political operative Bill Kristol announced Sunday that an independent candidate will enter the presidential race to challenge both Donald Trump and the Democratic Party nominee. Kristol, the editor of The Weekly Standard, has been trying for months to find a third-party challenger since his preferred candidates lost in the Republican primaries to Trump. Now, just weeks after meeting with Mitt Romney to talk about a third-party run, Kristol hinted Sunday that his plot is coming to fruition.

    An op-ed penned this month by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and published online appears to be blatantly plagiarized from an article written days earlier under former rival Ben Carson’s name, The Daily Caller has determined. The similar op-eds were written on the topic of America’s territories and commonwealths. Both pieces appear under the by-lines of the candidates. Carson’s piece, published Feb. 26, was published in the Marianas Variety in the Northern Mariana Islands. Trump’s op-ed — published in the Pacific Daily News in Guam, part of the USA Today Network — was published 12 days later on March 9.

    Ballotpedia.org ^ | Unknown | Unknown
    Generally speaking, an independent presidential candidate must petition for placement on the general election ballot in all 50 states, as well as Washington, D.C. A handful of states may allow an independent candidate to pay a filing fee in lieu of submitting a petition. The methods for calculating how many signatures are required vary considerably from state to state, as do the actual signature requirements. For instance, some states establish a flat signature requirement. Other states calculate signature requirements as percentages of voter registration or votes cast for a given office. In order to access the ballot nationwide, it is...

    Review by B.W. Durham “Resilience,” the new book by former Navy Seal and Rhodes Scholar Eric Greitens, is an inspiring guidebook for anyone who has confronted personal loss, harsh challenges in their own life, the death of a loved one or emotional pain. That is to say… “Resilience” is a book for everyone. The sub-title of Greitens’ book is “Hard-Won Wisdom for Living a Better Life.” Indeed, “Resilience” offers earned wisdom and insights that can help people forge ahead in times of struggle, and become stronger. But this is not a “how-to” book. It acknowledges serious traumas that can change...

Sean Noble is the founder of American Encore, a 501(c)4 nonprofit, which is paying $200,000 to air an ad in Des Moines that accuses Cruz of voting to “weaken national security” and urges him to “stop leading from behind.” Noble said that while he personally is backing Rubio — he served as a co-host of scotch and cigars fundraiser in Arizona last week — his group is...

    What is the fundamental reason to select Senator Ted Cruz over a field of other candidates for the Republican presidential candidate? The answer lies in the constitution -- not in some part of the document, but in the IMPORTANCE of the document. Senator Cruz has established that he understands this fundamental fact, and relies on it more than any other candidate. And he has the experience and educational background to make that understanding more effectual. Why is the Constitution so particularly important in this presidential election? Was it not always equally important? It is more important because America, like many...

    Perhaps you missed this small and unimpressive candidate for president, for his physical presence was as weak as the voice that delivered his message. At barely five feet, two inches tall, he stood up and criticized our government’s expensive actions, focusing on the problems before us instead of engaging in the sound bite war waged by the other candidates. Some in the audience craned their necks to hear his timid presentation, but most quickly dismissed him as being horribly incompetent in today’s media society. However, his words hit home with some people as he spoke about how Congress was wreckfully...

The average American political bystander asks why is Donald Trump being attacked with such vigor? The Democrat party and the left fears and attacks 2016 Presidential candidate Donald Trump because the left loses voters every time the general population sees and/or hears Trump speak the truth while displaying his love of American excellence; for instance, if Donald Trump puts truth to power and professes his support for the principles and practices of our founders.

    Jeb Bush is under growing pressure to acknowledge what to some voters and a number of campaign finance lawyers seems obvious: He is running for president. The lawyers say Mr. Bush, a former Florida governor, is stretching the limits of election law by crisscrossing the country, hiring a political team and raising tens of millions of dollars at fund-raisers, all without declaring — except once, by mistake — that he is a candidate. Some election experts say Mr. Bush passed the legal threshold to be considered a candidate months ago, even if he has not formally acknowledged it. Federal law...

    I've decided I've had enough of commenting from the sidelines and am going to be running for City Council in Rio Rancho, NM. I know we have many members who have gone through this and I would appreciate any comments and/or suggestions. Sorry if this post breaks any of the protocols of FreeRepublic, but I really want some input from fellow conservatives. Prayers too!

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday that she will soon tour the nation and deliver a series of speeches to promote more trust in government. She made her remarks at an annual American Bar Association meeting in San Francisco. More specifically, Mrs. Clinton said she was launching a series of speeches on foreign policy. And as part of those addresses, she planned to speak about the need to restore faith in government, Breitbart reported. She also bashed voter identification laws, telling 1,000 members of the ABA that these laws were frequently approved “under the cover of addressing the...
  • Romanoff Under Fire Again for Sidestepping PAC Money Pledge ( CO 6th Congressional)

    DENVER – A liberal ally may have cheered Democrat congressional candidate Andrew Romanoff’s commitment to reject contributions from political action committees (PACs) and special interest groups, but the former state lawmaker appears to be sidestepping that pledge by accepting money from high-profile lobbyists and fundraising “bundlers.” T.Q. Houlton, a spokesman for the National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC), blasted Romanoff, who faced similar criticism during his unsuccessful 2010 bid for the U.S. Senate. “After a devastating electoral loss in the 2010 Senate primary, Romanoff is making it clear that he is just another washed up professional politician looking to make full-time...

    Earlier today Forbes posted an excerpt from the book Hope Is Not a Strategy by John Mariotti and D. M. Lukas. The author provided an excerpt from the book for the article where he describes Barack Obama as a “manufactured candidate” whose history remains sealed. Mariotti then calls Obama the “Manchurian candidate.” But, after the article was posted for a few hours it suddenly disappeared down the memory hole. Here is the original article. “There is something very wrong when the sitting president refuses to divulge huge pieces of information about his background. What is he hiding? Maybe the “birthers”...

    Making no attempt to defend his record, he talks of what he “would” do in a second term. In these last days of the race, Obama counts on the news of Sandy turning attention away from Romney’s October momentum, to photo-ops of himself in a monogrammed bomber jacket trying to look presidential. The more Benghazi creeps into the news, the stranger the silence from the Obama administration. But the real story is that almost all of the hope of 2008 has ended in the fear and loathing of 2012. Obama has made no real attempt to defend much of what...
