  • Cruz campaign recruits volunteers for 'Camp Cruz' in South Carolina

    02/06/2016 3:52:59 PM PST · by GodGunsGuts
    Politico ^ | February 6, 2016 | KATIE GLUECK
    MANCHESTER, N.H. -- The New Hampshire primary is less than four days away, but the Cruz campaign is already ramping up volunteer organizing efforts in South Carolina. The campaign on Saturday sent an email asking supporters to join a "strike force" to deploy to South Carolina and aid get-out-the-vote operations, with housing provided in Greenville, S.C. -- the third "Camp Cruz" lodging operation to open, following those based in Des Moines and Manchester. Cruz sees friendlier territory in evangelical-dominated South Carolina than he does here in more moderate New Hampshire, and made it a point to stop in Greenville Tuesday...
  • America’s ‘Disappearing White Majority’ Is Not Disappearing

    Intermarriage and assimilation blur racial and ethnic lines, but the Census Bureau is determined to keep them sharp. The U.S. Bureau of the Census has projected that America will have a "non-white" majority by 2044. A new and quite stunning article in the Winter 2016 issue of The American Prospect (a left-of-center journal) debunks that claim and undermines the widespread faith that the Census Bureau knows what it is doing. The article, by the sociologist Richard Alba, is entitled "The Likely Persistence of a White Majority: How Census Bureau statistics have misled thinking about the American future." Its two key...
  • What Trump Must Do (at tonight's debate)

    02/06/2016 3:16:35 PM PST · by NKP_Vet · 14 replies
    The media's new focus on Donald Trump's "ground game" in New Hampshire is a classic case of generals fighting the last war. Given the inadequacies of the Trump's voter targeting and turn-out operation, his strong second place finish in Iowa shows his spontaneous natural strength and appeal. The Iowa Caucus, however, is a narrow and relatively small contest dominated by evangelical Christians. There is a premium on targeting voter contact and turn out. New Hampshire is a far different animal. There is a greater tradition of voting in the Republican primary with a more diverse electorate, including more Catholics and...

    The Iowa Republican winner appeals by trumpeting the gold standard, privacy rights and limits on eminent domain Eric Eastman, a pony-tailed actor from Nashua, N.H., became a coveted commodity here last week. In the hours after Sen. Rand Paul dropped out of the presidential race Wednesday, the libertarian state representative and passionate Paul supporter says he fielded a personal phone call from Jeb Bush and an offer from Donald Trump's campaign promising VIP treatment. Even an aide to Chris Christie reached out. But as he processed his grief over Paul's exit, Eastman already had a new candidate in mind. On...

    HILLARY CLINTON first grabbed the national spotlight 47 years ago as an idealistic young feminist, chiding the paternalistic establishment in her Wellesley commencement speech. So it’s passing strange to watch her here, getting rebuffed by young women who believe that she lacks idealism, that she overplays her feminist hand and that she is the paternalistic establishment. Bernie Sanders may be a dead ringer for Larry David, but Hillary is running the “Curb Your Enthusiasm” campaign. She can’t fire up young voters by dwelling on what can’t be done in Washington and by explaining that she’s more prose than poetry.

    In an effort to draw attention to his Kim Kardashian-style vanity campaign, Ben Carson took his contrived outrage mongering against Cruz to a new level yesterday.  During one of his numerous media appearances over the past three days, which is more actual campaigning than he’s done for the past few months while he took a hiatus to sell books, Carson compared Cruz’s behavior in Iowa to Hillary following the Benghazi tragedy. Enough is enough.  If Carson wants to talk about the depths of deception and dishonesty he should “start looking at the man in the mirror.”I was born and bred...

    PJ Media ^ | 02-06-2016 | Michael van der Galien
    Now that Marco Rubio appears to be rising in the polls, more members of the establishment are trying to convince voters that although they are supporting him, he really is profoundly conservative. Looking at Rubio's Liberty Score rating of 79% it's clear that he is indeed more conservative than most other members of the establishment, but that doesn't make him the most principled and electable conservative in the race. Additionally, the very fact alone that the establishment is rallying around Rubio should give conservatives reason to pause. When is the last time you saw the GOP's establishment and their friends...

    There is no real litmus test for Conservatism; as should be obvious to anyone on brief reflection. Conservatism is--and always has been, as the term connotes--about preserving what one considers important, in a social, cultural, historic & genetic heritage. One person may be more focused on one aspect, another on another. There is no natural law that demands that all have the same focus--indeed, the notion flies in the face of the concept that man is Blessed with Free Will; with freedom to decide priorities--and, of course, bear the consequences. Conservatism is about preserving social--both cultural & material, as well...

    Trent Lott (R-Miss.) says he would take a hard line with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) if he was still running the Senate. Cruz, a presidential candidate, assailed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) in a floor speech last year, accusing him of lying about a deal related to the Export-Import Bank. Lott, who served as Senate majority leader in 2002, suggested Cruz's speech was beyond the pale. "Having been majority leader, I've never had someone stand on the Senate floor and call me a liar," Lott said in an interview with The Hill's Molly K. Hooper. "In fact, if I...

    Excerpted KANAB — Most of the people who came to the funeral of LaVoy Finicum didn't know the Arizona rancher personally. They came anyway, in trucks and campers and caravans, drawn either by kinship with the Finicum family or by sympathy for the cause that took him to rural Oregon. The Arizona rancher was one of the most recognizable faces of the armed standoff in Oregon, where a group of protesters seized the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in early January to protest what they said was federal overreach into Western rangelands. Finicum was shot dead by police on Jan. 26...

Trump was stranded in New York as nearly a foot of snow fell in the Granite State, prompting the campaign to postpone a town hall meeting at the Londonderry Lions Club. But Cruz, who pulled off an upset win over the front-runner Trump in the Iowa Caucus on Monday, turned out for his scheduled appearance that night at Lancaster School in Salem -- as did several hundred...

    While it's not a done deal yet, there's a good chance that we may finally be receiving a final decision from the Supreme Court on the question of so called "assault weapons" bans. Back in December, gun rights activists were largely disappointed when SCOTUS decided they would not hear an appeal to Illinois' assault weapons ban, allowing a lower court ruling in favor of the law to stand. At the time, I speculated that they were waiting for more lower courts to weigh in on similar challenges around the country to see if there was some sort of consensus or...

    TEHRAN - Only weeks into what was widely anticipated to be a helter-skelter, post-sanctions rush of Western money and expertise into Iran, limits to the country's opening are beginning to emerge as the conservative leadership seeks to limit the reach of Western influences. Behind the headlines announcing big business contracts with European companies it is becoming increasingly clear that, so far, the only deals being struck have been with the state-backed conglomerates. These are the groups that dominate major industrial and commercial sectors of the Iranian economy like the Revolutionary Guards. As a result, little or nothing is trickling down...

    Trump is not a conservative. He's an economic nationalist whose limited involvement in politics over the years has largely consisted of furthering his own interests by contributing to members of both political parties. His current policy positions often contradict those he's publicly expressed in the past, and his governing philosophy, to the extent he has one, combines crony capitalism with government activism (eminent domain; ethanol; protectionism; universal, government-paid health care).Des Moines, Iowa - The shorthand understanding of the likely three-man race for the Republican nomination goes something like this.

    Nearly all states have some sort of law preempting local gun laws. Preemption means that the State preserves to itself certain areas of the law. Firearms are a natural for this protection; most Most are comprehensive; a few are minimal. Massachusetts has very limited state pre-emption. From dovekopel.com: Massachusetts preempts all gun licensing (Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 140 sect. 129B), and the state constitution forbids local laws inconsistent with state law; for this reason, Boston's Dec. 1989 ban on "assault weapons" was not allowed to go into effect until the state legislature later passed a bill authorizing...

The Donald, much to his credit, tried to explain and educate that a robust economy will increase revenues dramatically. It is a basic concept that BOR can't seem to understand. Raising taxes actually decreases tax revenues because most economists believe the USA's federal tax rates are on the right side of the laffer curve...

    Henry George And The Beginnings Of Revolutionary Socialism In The United States.Part two of "Recent American Socialism", by Richard Theodore Ely Henry George's work, "Progress and Poverty," was published in 1879. In 1885, not six years later, it is possible to affirm without hesitation that the appearance of that one book formed a noteworthy epoch in the history of economic thought both in England and America. It is not simply that the treatise itself was an eloquent, impassioned plea for the confiscation of rent for the public good as a means of abolishing economic social evils, but rather that the...

    The initial stupefaction and dismay with which liberals greeted Donald Trump's candidacy have slowly given way to feelings of Schadenfreude- reveling in the suffering of others, in this case the apoplectic members of the Republican Establishment. Are such feelings morally wrong? Or can liberals enjoy the spectacle unleavened by guilt? As Republican voters start actually voting, is it okay to be sad - alarmed, even - by the prospect that the Trump hostile takeover of the GOP may fail? There are three reasons, in descending order of obviousness, for a liberal to earnestly and patriotically support a Trump Republican nomination....

    February 05, 2016, 12:00 pm DHS ordered me to scrub records of Muslims with terror ties By Philip HaneyAmid the chaos of the 2009 holiday travel season, jihadists planned to slaughter 290 innocent travelers on a Christmas Day flight from the Netherlands to Detroit, Michigan.

    Marco Rubio said he believes that sexual preference is decided at birth, but still believes that states should be able to decide if they want to define marriage as anything other than involving a man and a woman. "It's not that I'm against gay marriage. I believe the definition of the institution of marriage should be between one man and one woman," Rubio said in an interview on CBS' "Face the Nation." "States have always regulated marriage. And if a state wants to have a different definition, you should petition the state legislature and have a political debate. I don't...

    MUSCATINE, Iowa -- Whether or not he was aware that it was not the same branch of Presbyterianism he claims to follow, Donald Trump obtained a lesson in "humility" during a reading at a "gay-affirming" Presbyterian USA congregation on Sunday, followed by a sermon from a woman pastor that included talk on welcoming refugees. "We talked about humility in church today," Trump told reporters following the service at First Presbyterian Church of Muscatine (PCUSA), which he visited prior to a campaign rally in the city, just days before the Iowa Caucus. "I don't know if that was aimed at me....

    The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is planning to cut 50 percent of the budget for aerial surveillance along the U.S.-Mexico border, agents revealed at a congressional hearing Thursday. In an effort to understand why DHS is cutting funding, Texas's Republican Gov. Greg Abbott and Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, wrote a bi-partisan letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson. "Any decrease in aerial observation is not only imprudent, but contradicts the very mission of border security enforcement," the letter states. The lawmakers' letter also asks for detailed information about the reduction aerial-based border security, also known as Operation Phalanx. Abbott and...
