    For the benefit of every American citizen, Presidential candidate Donald Trump is re shaping America’s 2016 political narrative. Suffering dastardly attacks as his reward. 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. Or patriotic...

    She has firm grip on Democratic nomination and leads three GOP rivals, new survey shows Hillary Clinton has emerged from the rocky launch of her second presidential bid with a firm grip on Democratic voters and leads over three potential Republican rivals, a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds. The survey, taken in the days after Mrs. Clinton held her first public rally earlier this month, showed the former secretary of state garnering broad support from voter groups most likely to determine the election, including Latinos and women under the age of 50.

    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...

    South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham is “ready to be commander-in-chief on day one,” the Republican will say when he announces his presidential candidacy in South Carolina today, according to excerpts of his remarks as prepared for delivery. “I intend to be president not of a single party, but of a nation,” he will say. “I want to do more than make big government smaller. I want to help make a great nation greater.” Graham, a retired Air Force colonel, enters the race just as a fierce battle over national security rages in the Senate. The South Carolina senator – a...

On his radio show Tuesday on ESPN, former Washington Post sports columnist and occasional political pundit Tony Kornheiser used a Father’s Day tribute Rubio wrote for The Daily Caller in 2014 to attack the Florida Republican’s fitness for the Oval Office.

He will blast 'special interests that use Washington, D.C. as their personal piggy bank' if he wins the White House, Paul promised a cheering, packed ballroom. 'The Washington machine,' he said, 'must be stopped.' Paul's official announcement Tuesday that he would run for president in 2016 came at the beginning of what observers are already calling an unconventional campaign....

What if Ted Cruz could win the General election and everything the experts know about politics is wrong?

The reason these questions are never asked or answered is that conservative voters have been shamed into a corner so they will...

The only problem is that Christie is trending in the wrong direction with the GOP’s conservative base. Christie finished in 4th place with 8% in 2014, according to The Washington Times, which plummeted to a dismal 10th place finish with only 2.8%.

    Team Ted Cruz is taking shape, and the Senate first-termer's presidential campaign could start before this spring. The Republican senator from Texas tentatively plans to fill senior campaign positions with the triumvirate he signed last summer to expand his political operation. At the top is Jeff Roe, whose organizational title is undefined but who would be the campaign’s chief strategic and logistics decision-maker. Jason Miller would shape and oversee campaign messaging; Lauren Lofstrom would direct fundraising. Cruz is in the process of “feeling out” additional campaign hires and prospective donors in preparation to join the field of 2016 candidates. If...

    He and Rubio are the only two top-tier candidates I thought might pass on the race, and the only reason I thought Rubio would skip it is if Jeb Bush snapped up all the political talent in Florida for his own run. Cruz, I imagined, might pass simply because he can afford to play the long game. Rubio is no sure thing to get reelected in a purple state like Florida so it might be now or never for him; Cruz, on the other hand, will keep his Senate seat in the red state of Texas for as long as...

First, you'll recall her hilarious claim of being "dead broke" upon leaving the rent-free White House in 2001 and confronting mortgages on two mansions. We've all heard about her scores of strictly-controlled, quarter-million dollar speeches to every convention of scrap metal dealers and the like since jumping off the sinking S.S. Obama last year.

    Email received today from Sharon Day RNC Co-Chair As President, Barack Obama has disregarded the Constitution, ignored the will of the American people and treated America as a monarchy, not a democracy. America deserves better, which is why the 2016 presidential election is so important.

That’s because, in the two weeks since joining the ticket, Kearney has been under almost constant barrage for owing back taxes to the Internal Revenue Service.

    BOISE -- A teacher, political candidate, and former doctor is facing charges of aggravated assault after police say she threatened employees at a Staples store with a gun. We are beginning to learn more about Cynthia Clinkingbeard, and her behavior leading up to the incident on Friday night. At the time of her arrest, Clinkingbeard was part of the adjunct faculty at Boise State and the faculty at College of Western Idaho. Her students say that her behavior over the past few months was, at times, strange. Some students at CWI dropped her class because of what they called "erratic...

"I get done, a guy raises his hand and says, 'I think you want...

    As Santorum surges, and the GOP look for an alternative to Romney- any alternative- it’s fitting then that I reflect back on one of the few losses the GOP suffered in 2010 races. Harry Reid versus Sharron Angle was battled out mostly in and around Las Vegas at a time when I was an activist there. That race is one of the reasons why the Democrats managed to hold on to the US Senate in 2010. If Newt Gingrich- or Santorum- expects to be hanging tough with the other presidential hopefuls by March, they’d better be willing to prove that...

  • First Look at Kepler SETI Candidate Signals

    01/05/2012 9:20:42 PM PST · by LibWhacker · 24 replies
    We've started searching our Kepler SETI observations and our analyses have generated some of our first candidate signals. Each of the signals below is shown in a pair of plots, one from an observation of Kepler Object of Interest (KOI) 817 and one from an observation of KOI-812. During an observation, we alternated between targets to enable us to rule out signals seen coming from two different places in the sky. If we see a signal coming from multiple positions on the sky, it is very likely to be interference.What do these plots represent? These are plots of electromagnetic...

Pinnell said, in an email to Red Dirt Report: "While not a presidential candidate, Herman Cain is still committed to helping make Barack...
