    Louder with Crowder ^ | January 28 2016 | Courtney Kirchoff
    A favorite tactic employed by leftists is to describe the Nazis as “right wing,” with Adolf Hitler, their leader, as the grand leader of this “right wing” movement. Rewriting history is pretty common for leftists, as their history is littered with injustice (the KKK was founded by Democrats, did you know?). Injustices they claim to fight against today. Awkward. But thanks to this nifty thing called “history” in combination with “the internet,” we can bust this myth once and for all. Thoroughly. Or until a leftist insists on ignoring it. Then we’ll hold them down and tape their eyes open....

    They might not make national headlines, but local endorsements in presidential primaries matter. According to the influential book "The Party Decides," such endorsements reveal party elites trying to come to a decision about which candidate they should mutually support. They are leading indicators of vote - and delegate - outcomes. In many ways, they are better at predicting how the race will turn out than opinion polls. As we'll explain below, in New Hampshire, Ted Cruz has built up a commanding lead of these endorsements - especially compared with Marco Rubio and Donald Trump, which indicates a reservoir of strength...

    Ben Carson will be notably absent from his New Hampshire primary party on Tuesday. The retired neurosurgeon will instead fly to South Carolina in the afternoon, his campaign said. Following Tuesday's first-in-the-nation primary in New Hampshire, South Carolina Republicans will vote next, on Feb. 20. The decision to leave New Hampshire early comes after Carson’s campaign last week said he would be going home to Florida instead of campaigning in New Hampshire or South Carolina following the Iowa caucuses.

    Forbes ^ | February 9, 2016 | Nathan Lewis
    Echoing the recent sentiments of Steve Forbes, this week Republican presidential contender Ted Cruz told a group in New Hampshire: "Money is ... a unit of measurement. So, the reason why we see these rapid oscillations in commodities markets, it's because of unstable currencies. And it's why I think we should look at going toward rules-based money supply, ideally tied to gold, so you have stability." Perhaps this will trigger another flood of disagreement in the mainstream press, such as the recent New York Times item which reported that 40 out of 40 "leading economists" said that a gold standard...

And as she tackled Giuliani's suggestion that Beyoncé wasn't fit for "middle America," she honed in on a bigger issue.

At a Trump rally on Monday, a woman in the crowd shouted that Cruz was, "a pussy." "She just said a terrible thing," Trump said while smirking. "You know what she said?

    Rev. Fred Morris is familiar with violence in Latin America. Morris, currently leading North Hills United Methodist Church, survived detention and torture at the hands of Brazil's military dictatorship in 1974. That's one reason Morris said he's ready to defy Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials and offer his place of worship as a refuge for Central Americans facing imminent deportation to a region with escalating violence. "We are willing to fight this tooth and nail," said Morris, 82. "If ICE wants to come get them, they're going to have to break down the church door." Morris' congregation is one of...

    Considering how little the Supreme Court has been mentioned in election debates, a space alien might conclude that it’s the “least dangerous” branch of government. A Gallup poll released on October 2, 2015 indicates that 50 percent of Americans “disapprove of the way the Supreme Court is handling its job,” a drop of 12 points since 2001. A CBS News/New York Times Poll conducted from June 10-14, 2015 asked 1,007 adults nationwide: “In general, do you think the current Supreme Court justices decide their cases based on legal analysis without regard to their own personal or political views, or...

    National Review ^ | 02/09/2016 | Andrew McCarthy
    Sometimes you outsmart yourself. After re-watching the excruciating Rubio-Christie exchange (embedded in David's post), I can't help but think that Marco Rubio outsmarted himself -- or at least locked in on the wrong part of Chris Christie's commentary and, in the heat of the moment, couldn't let go. In the post-mortem, it has been noted repeatedly that Christie attacked Rubio as an unaccomplished, programmed candidate. But Rubio's alleged insufficiencies were only one part of Christie's argument. The other, the actual premise of Christie's critique, was the analogy of Rubio to Obama. Christie contends that the Obama who ran for president...

Consider the question of illegal immigration. No, not the question of immigration -- illegal immigration. There's a temptation to bundle those together, because we have problems with our legal immigration regime, too, but the more tightly we tie them together, the more closely we bind...

    The part-socialist, part-black nationalist Black Panther Party is headline news again, thanks to Beyonce's Super Bowl 50 halftime show performance of her song "Formation,"-"a big wet kiss to Black Lives Matter" that pays tribute to the 1960s militant group. In the fall of 1966, the Black Panther Party was founded by left-wing militants Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale. Newton, like Seale, had several run-ins with police. He was convicted and sentenced to 30 years in prison for the shooting death of an Oakland police officer. Publicity around his arrest and the popularity of "Free Newton" propaganda provided the public...

    The words natural born citizen, and their original meaning at the time that this constitutional clause was crafted, go a long way to answering this question. In founding-era America, like today, a person could be a citizen by virtue of birth on American territory; a citizen by virtue of a statute that granted citizenship to him at birth; a "naturalized" citizen, meaning one who entered the country as an alien but later obtained citizenship via a process determined by law; and a foreigner. A natural born citizen cannot be a foreigner. Foreigners are not citizens. A natural born citizen cannot...

    Obamacare is putting the agricultural industry in a tizzy. Contractors who provide farm labor must now offer workers health insurance are complaining loudly about the cost in their already low-margin business. Last year, employers with 100 or more full-time employees had to offer health insurance to their workers or pay a stiff penalty. This year, employers with 50 to 99 full-time employees must comply. The cost isn't the only thing about Obamacare stressing people out in the ag industry. Some are worried about immigration problems. Employers have to file new health care forms with the IRS for all their workers,...

Her backup dancers, it appeared, were dressed as members of the Black Panther Party. Fox News offers a detailed explanation of their controversial outfits:

    Sen. Rob Portman, a former U.S trade ambassador, announced Thursday that he opposes a sweeping 12-nation Pacific Rim trade agreement, dealing a setback to a deal that is seen as a key part of President Obama’s economic legacy. The Ohio Republican is facing a difficult re-election campaign against Ted Strickland, an anti-trade former Democratic governor, in a state that has seen a steep decline in manufacturing as a result of companies moving operations overseas. The announcement is a significant but not fatal blow to the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement, which is protected by fast-track rules that ensure it cannot...

Certainty that such pressure will come, and need to be resisted to protect combat effectiveness, was expressed both by senators and witnesses during the first congressional hearing held to review how Army and Marine Corps plan to open all ground combat jobs to women. No senator on the committee suggested Congress should block the Dec. 3...

    ... Now that Cruz regularly polls toward the top of an ever-shrinking field, his early tenure bears closer scrutiny. Cruz has gained fame as a social conservative and an unwavering opponent of Obamacare. In his first major leadership role, however, he developed economic policy as the director of the Federal Trade Commission's Office of Policy Planning...

    Donald Trump continues to lead the Republican presidential pack in New Hampshire by a wide margin, but Sen. Marco Rubio's surge to second place nearly disappeared in a tracking poll released by the University of Massachusetts Lowell on Monday. Trump leads his competitors by 21 points, earning 34 percent support from likely Republican primary voters. The real estate mogul's support in the tracking poll has dropped 4 percentage points since the beginning of last week. After jumping to second place in the tracking poll with 15 percent support at the end of last week, Rubio has dropped by 2 percentage...

    Via the Daily Rushbo, that’s the second time in a week that Rush has given Rubio a vote of confidence at a moment when the rest of the field (Ted Cruz very much included) is desperate to blow him up. That feels strange after so many months of Limbaugh mainstreaming Trump on the right — as I said in last week’s post, it’s hard to be pro-Trump and pro-Rubio — but it makes sense strategically. If Rubio collapses, conservatives are left with Cruz and … that’s pretty much it, given that the other remaining survivors in the field are...

    (CNSNews.com) - Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), asked to respond to North Korea's test of an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching the United States, called for an expanded missile defense capacity and a "hardened" electrical grid. But first, he noted that President Bill Clinton relaxed sanctions against North Korea, just as President Obama has relaxed sanctions against Iran: "So, what we are seeing with North Korea is foreshadowing of where we will be with Iran." At Saturday's Republican debate...

    "This is football, not Hollywood, and I thought it was really outrageous that she used it as a platform to attack police officers who are the people who protect her and protect us, and keep us alive," he said. "And what we should be doing in the African-American community, and all communities, is build up respect for police officers. And focus on the fact that when something does go wrong, okay. We'll work on that. But the vast majority of police officers risk their lives to keep us safe."
