    Donald Trump might finally have crossed the line. Appearing on Saturday at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa, the real estate mogul took his running feud with Arizona Sen. John McCain to a new level. Hes not a war hero, said Trump. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who werent captured. The remarks, which came after days of back-and-forth between McCain and Trump, were met with scattered boos.

    I grew up in a blue-collar family in a working class neighborhood (the South Bronx) where just about everybody (if not literally everybody) voted Democratic. In college, I was a liberal and proud of it. The big issue was civil rights and liberals were on the right side of that one while conservatives yes, mostly Democrats from the South were on both the wrong side of history and the wrong side of decency. When the issue of womens rights came along, I was on board with that too. I didnt think much about taxes, mainly because I...

    Last week, National Review’s Jim Geraghty published what may be the most insightful essay yet [1] on the difference between the conservative movement and Donald Trump and his followers. Geraghty has noticed a telling reticence on Trump’s part to utter such words as “freedom” or “liberty.” By contrast, Geraghty notes that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker used the word “freedom” six times in the 179-word announcement of his plan to replace ObamaCare, and Ted Cruz used “freedom” twice and “liberty” eleven times in his announcement speech at Liberty University, not counting references to the university itself.The reason for this lack of...

    GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump will never win the White House because he is playing to aging white voters and turning off blacks and Hispanics, U.S. Sen. John McCain said. I dont think he could win the White House because we have to attract voters, McCain said on Herald Radios Morning Meeting show yesterday. We have an aging white population in America and a growing Hispanic and African-American population and we have to reach out to them.

    A federal judge has upheld part of Arizonas contentious immigration law, rejecting claims that the so-called show your papers section discriminated against Hispanics. The ruling by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton on Friday was on the last of seven challenges to the 2010 law. The section she upheld allows police in Arizona to check the immigration status of anyone they stop. Bolton ruled that immigration rights activists failed to show that police would enforce the law differently for Hispanics than other people.

    GOP presidential contender Lindsey Graham told a campaign rally Tuesday that he cant support a government shutdown over Planned Parenthood, because it would endanger national security. In a speech on foreign policy in South Carolina, Graham said he is opposed to federal funding on Planned Parenthood but warned a government shutdown would impair our military, our intelligence community, the people we rely upon to protect us. The South Carolina senators stance puts him in line with Senate leadership but at odds with the majority of the 2016 field, who have backed the hard-lined approach advocated by fellow Sens.

Ward was the choice of 45 percent of the registered Arizona voters polled, while McCain only garnered 36 percent. 1,271 of the more than 1,400 voters polled say they intend to vote in the 2016 primary election. Approximately one fifth remained undecided at this early stage of the race. Independent polling company Gravis Marketing conducted the August 15 poll.

    By far the biggest story of the summer is Donald Trump's surging candidacy for the U.S. presidency. It's obvious why. Hate him or love him, Donald Trump knows how to captivate the public's attention. He seems immune from being hurt; I want to examine why. What is it about Donald Trump that allows him to survive any occurrence that no conventional political candidate could? And, not only that, but to use these instances to further galvanize his base of supporters, while growing it? This summer, we have seen example after example of this. People were horrified when he questioned Sen....

Many have expressed reservations about the deal, and I share some of those reservations, Franken, D-Minn., wrote in an Op-Ed on CNNs website. It isnt a perfect agreement, he said. But it is a strong one. This agreement is, in my opinion, the most effective, realistic way to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon anytime in the next 15 years.

Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer's office was in the same building as Eddie's office, and they would come to work every day with matching cars. Some days it would be the Porsches, and the next day it would be Ferraris. I was like the...

    Chris Rock is a comedian who has built his career on addressing controversial topics in his material, which is why he will never perform at a college ever again. Speaking to New York Magazine, Rock gave his thoughts on Bill Maher's appointment as the winter commencement speaker at UC - Berkeley and the student body's immediate protest. Rock said college's are just too conservative for his jokes to be effective. "Not in their political views - not like they're voting Republican - but in their social views and their willingness not to offend anybody," Rock told the magazine. "Kids raised...

    In 2008, the election of President Obama was roundly hailed as a major step forward for race relations in America but in a lengthy interview with New York Magazine, Chris Rock explained that the term "race relations" doesn't capture what's really happening. "When we talk about race relations in America or racial progress, it's all nonsense. There are no race relations," he said. "White people were crazy. Now they're not as crazy. To say that black people have made progress would be to say they deserve what happened to them before." So, to say Obama is progress is saying...

White says, Most of the cops, are good cops but every once in a while one in a basket can spoil the whole thing.

White adding,

    JOHANNESBURG (AP) Relatives sang hymns and songs from South Africa's anti-apartheid struggle Tuesday as forensic scientists exhumed bodies believed to belong to two young activists last seen 24 years ago at the home of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. ... Madikizela-Mandela has denied all knowledge of the two. But her chief bodyguard, Jerry Richardson, told the commission that he and a colleague had killed the two on her orders. Nicodemus Sono, father of the missing man, told the commission that Madikizela-Mandela had come to his home with his son, face bruised from beatings, in November 1998.

    Biblical scholar Chris Rock breathed the spirit of a Pauline epistle last week, as he urged children to meekly submit to their parents: The president and the first lady are kinda like the Mom and Dad of the country, Rock said. And when your Dad says something, you listen. And when you dont, it will usually bite you in the ass later on. Waithe wasnt urging submission to mom and dad, but to Caesar as if he were mom and dad. If youve managed to keep your last meal down, it gets worse. Because, when you reject the parental ministrations...

    Now where was I? Oh, right; talking about distractions. Yesterday as we learned from Secretary Panetta and General Dempsey that we did everything possible even though neither BO nor Hills were kept appraised of the attack on our consulate in Benghazi. Apparently nobody in news central found that odd, as the evenings newscasts, podcasts, posts and tweets were preoccupied with other critical issues. Most were busy communicating dire warnings and hand-wringing over the impending blizzard in New England. Because its winter, and these folks have never seen a blizzard before. Not one like this anyway. Oh, and the manhunt in...

    Isnt the only defense for a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun basically the premise for every Hollywood action movie? Well, I guess sometimes its the only defense against a bad guy with kung fu is a good guy with kung fu. In America, the president isnt supposed to be like a dad. Hes supposed to be like a butler we order to do the things we dont want to. The president isnt the leader of the country; hes the leader of the least part of the country: the government. Hes king of the...

    On Wednesday, comedian Chris Rock appeared on Capitol Hill with other celebrities to express support for Obama's gun control proposals. While there, he called the president America's "boss" and said that he and First Lady Michelle Obama are the country's parents.
