    I'm currently watching Rubio make his post-primary speech. He said we need to get back to "free enterpise" for our economy. "Free Enterprise" to me is just code that establishment Republicans use when they mean sending jobs to Mexico and bringing in millions of Mexicans to the USA. He has not mentioned immigration ONCE. Not even a mention. He did, however, praise Yeb Bush and the entire Bush family.

    The Washington Post ^ | 2/17/2016 | Philip Bump
    The other question raised by a Trump victory in South Carolina, though, is why that dynamic would change. In CNN's poll, Trump beats Ted Cruz by a wider margin among evangelical voters than he does among voters overall -- a voting bloc that is supposed to be in Cruz's corner. (In Iowa, where the majority of Republican voters identified as evangelical, Cruz won evangelicals by 12 points. In South Carolina, Trump leads with them by 20.) Trump also leads with conservative voters in South Carolina, although by a smaller margin than he leads overall. If that holds, it's not clear...

    In the latest Quinnipiac University national survey of likely Republican voters, Trump jumps to 39 percent of the vote, up eight points from the beginning of the month. The Texas senator, meanwhile, saw his share of the vote drop four points to 18 percent. The big winner in the poll other than Trump is Florida Sen. Marco Rubio who held steady at 19 percent despite a setback in New Hampshire. With Cruz's slip, that was good enough to put Rubio in second place in this poll and for the first time the Real Clear Politics average of polls.

    The incoming fire appears to have taken a toll in South Carolina, a state that had been seen as favorable territory for Cruz due to its conservative and evangelical bent. But new polls released this week show Cruz trailing by double digits, with Trump poised for a huge win in the state on Saturday. Wednesday's Monmouth University poll gives Trump 35 percent support, nearly doubling Cruz, who garnered just 19 percent. Trump's lead extends to the very evangelical community that Cruz had expected to win in large numbers.

    Former Governor Jeb Bush has a much more serious eminent domain problem to reconcile than current media reports are discussing. During his tenure as Florida Governor Bush initiated the largest eminent domain private property confiscation in the history of the Sunshine State. Bush’s action is now costing the State of Florida hundreds of millions in lawsuits and legal fees. During a period from mid-2000 to January 2006 the Florida Department of Agriculture, at the direction of Governor Jeb Bush, began a program to seize and destroy citrus trees from Florida residents.

    What you will find in all of Donald Trump’s positions, is a paradigm shift he necessarily understands must take place in order to accomplish the long-term goals for the U.S. citizen/worker as it relates to “entitlements” or “structural benefits”. All other candidates are beginning their policy proposals with a fundamentally divergent perception of the U.S. economy. They are working with, and retaining the outlook of, a U.S. economy based on “services”; a service-based economic model. Consequently their forecasted economic growth projections are based on ever-increasing foreign manufacturing dependency, and even more solidifying service-based economics. While this economic path has been...

    Long before Donald Trump stamped his name in gold on buildings around the world, posted snarky midnight tweets and joined the race for the White House, he was New York’s most important and bravest real-estate developer. Whatever you think about his political views or crazy campaign, Trump doesn’t get enough credit for being a transformative planner who is in love with the city. No matter how many times they watch “Taxi Driver,” younger New Yorkers and older ones who arrived recently have no idea of what the city was actually like in the mid-1970s through the mid-’90s.

    A close review of the poll internals, shows some remarkable and consistent insights when contrast against ground reports, alternate polling and field data. What many political junkies might find remarkable is the dominance of the Trump coalition. After reviewing the poll data, the current decisions of the Trump campaign’s approach in South Carolina make VERY good sense. When you review the poll data take note of what the pollster calls Horse Race #1, and Horse Race #2, the first preference and second preference of the SC electorate. Only Donald Trump extends well beyond 50% when both first and second choices...

Recalling how his state was pivotal to George H.W. Bush securing the presidential nod in 1988 and George W. Bush rebounding against John McCain in 2000, Hipp said Trump’s strong organization suggests “he took a page out Bush 41 and W's playbook and made South Carolina the campaign's firewall.”

Wednesday during a town hall event in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, Bush claimed, “And Peyton Manning in the NFL I guess is adult in the room, right? So I kind of like that position these days, I never thought I would be the adult in the room.” “Now we just saw the Super Bowl, I know that you all probably, maybe had some leanings to Carolina,” Bush said. “I was for Denver...

    The South Carolina state House passed a bill Wednesday that declares President Obamas Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to be null and void, and criminalizes its implementation. The states Freedom of Health Care Protection Act intends to prohibit certain individuals from enforcing or attempting to enforce such unconstitutional laws; and to establish criminal penalties and civil liability for violating this article.

    RALEIGH The state House passed a bill Wednesday requiring voters to show a photo ID when they go to the polls in 2016, after an emotionally charged debate that underscored North Carolinas political polarization. House Republicans pushed through the measure saying that the public demanded more stringent ballot security at polling places, that voter fraud was more prevalent than is understood, and that in a modern, mobile society fewer election officials personally knew voters. Our system of government depends upon open and honest elections, said Rep. David Lewis, a farm equipment dealer from Dunn and a Republican. Having people...

Bloomberg News and The Washington Post first reported that Ms. Kennedy was under consideration. Ms. Kennedy was an early supporter of President Obama, offering forceful backing as he battled Hillary Rodham Clinton for the Democratic...

    Every year during the Christmas season I replace my regular column with a story I wrote years ago. Its totally fictitious, but there are bits and pieces of autobiographical material here and there that reflect on my earliest remembrances of Christmas time in North Carolina. We always have a get together with family and friends at our house on Christmas Eve night. We share some food and drink and then sit around the den in a circle and everybody gets a turn to say whatever is on their minds followed by me reading Luke's version of the Christmas story. Several...

    The free ride is over for North Carolina. It was good while it lasted -- but why it lasted so long, I can't say. It's astounding, how this academic scandal could go on for so many years and help so many UNC athletes without being stopped. ....How many athletes were given free grades from the Department of African and Afro-American Studies? We don't know.

    North Carolina's Democratic dramaBy CHARLES MAHTESIAN | 5/12/12 11:46 PM EDT It's been a rough week for North Carolina Democrats. First there was Tuesday's passage of the constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. Then, as a result, there were calls from gay rights activists to move the Democratic National Convention out of Charlotte. On Friday, Gov. Bev Perdue said her state looked like Mississippi as a result of the gay marriage vote -- and she didn't mean it as a compliment. All the while, the state's former senator, John Edwards, was on trial in Greensboro. And just when it looked...
