    Now that Rand Paul is out of the race for the White House his father Ron Paul, who ran in 2008 and 2012, isn't impressed by Ted Cruz's attempts to pick up the "free market" libertarian banner. "You take a guy like Cruz, people are liking the Cruz - they think he's for the free market, and [in reality] he's owned by Goldman Sachs. I mean, he and Hillary have more in common than we would have with either Cruz or Trump or any of them so I just don't think there is much picking," Paul said of the Texas...

    After trade ministers from the U.S. and 11 other countries on either side of the Pacific on Thursday signed one of the biggest trade deals in history, President Obama called on Republicans and Democrats to approve it "this year." Obama said in a statement he would "continue working with Democrats and Republicans in Congress to enact it [the Trans-Pacific Partnership] into law as soon as possible so our economy can immediately start benefiting from the tens of billions of dollars in new export opportunities." "We should get TPP done this year and give more American workers the shot at success...

    Donald J. Trump has criticized Gov. John R. Kasich of Ohio at numerous debates, including for his tenure as a managing general partner at a bank that was central to the financial crisis. Now, America Leads, the “super PAC” supporting Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey is putting some money behind Mr. Trump’s accusations in a withering attack ad aimed at Mr. Kasich. It begins with Mr. Kasich saying “I was a banker and I was proud of it,” before cutting to Mr. Trump’s criticism, and rifling through Mr. Kasich’s record as both a congressman and a businessman, accusing him...

    Jeb Bush has suggested in the past that his blunt, outspoken, 90-year-old mother has strong opinions about Donald Trump. Sitting next to the former first lady in a joint interview with CNN Special Correspondent Jamie Gangel, Bush cautioned his mom when she was asked what she really thinks about the real estate titan. "Be careful," Bush murmured to his mom. Barbara Bush initially declined to show her true feelings about Trump, the man who's been tearing into her son for more than six months as someone who's "dumb as a rock" and "low energy." But then she changed her mind....

In a "gotcha" cheap shot attempt BOR tried to get Donald Trump to say taxes need to be raised to help with the deficit.. 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....

"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...

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...

He likely could have gone on, but instead, suspended his campaign Wednesday morning. He'll focus on securing re-election to the Senate, which he should easily accomplish....

The issue has been around since Obama's first run for that office, though it was largely ignored at the time by the media and the political establishment. More recently, Donald Trump stumbled (quite by accident, I presume) into actually mentioning the Constitution when he raised the issue with regard to his competitor for the nomination, Ted Cruz.

    Following a signing ceremony on February 4 in New Zealand, the Obama administration is calling on the GOP-controlled Congress to hurry up and approve the massive "free-trade" regime known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Despite fierce opposition and the ongoing presidential primaries, Obama's Trade Representative, Michael Froman, said he was confident that Republican lawmakers would comply with the White House's demand in the months ahead, warning of "economic consequences" if Congress did not make haste. At this point, though, approval appears to be far from certain. Dubbed "Obamatrade" by critics, the deeply controversial treaty has opponents up in arms...

    In a major victory for gun rights advocates, a federal appeals court on Thursday sided with a broad coalition of gun owners, businesses and organizations that challenged the constitutionality of a Maryland ban on assault weapons and other laws aimed at curbing gun violence. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit said the state's prohibition on what the court called "the vast majority of semi-automatic rifles commonly kept by several million American citizens" amounted to a violation of their rights under the Constitution.

    In October, 2014, a 76-year-old New Jersey resident shot three problem bears on his property. One was an adult sow that was on his deck and looking in through his sliding glass door. The location of the two juvenile bears when they were shot, is disputed, but was either on the deck or close to it. Bears are more dangerous as they are larding up for the winter hibernation.Bears that display this level of familiarity with humans, who associate humans with food, are a severe problems waiting to happen. It is why the conservation community has come up with...

    Politico Florida ^ | 10/30/2015 | Bruce Ritchie
    As speaker of the Florida House of Representatives in 2008, Marco Rubio helped pass a sweeping energy bill - backed by a number of environmentalists - that seemed to reflect a bipartisan interest in renewable energy, climate change and the environment. Rubio's positioning on environmental issues has inarguably changed as he evolved from local Republican legislator to high-profile U.S. senator and, now, presidential candidate. "This nation and ultimately the world is headed for an emissions tax and energy diversification," Rubio told the Legislature. "Those changes will require technological advances that make those measures cost effective. The demand for such advances...

    "Have you seen this?" asked a campaign aide for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.). He held up a smartphone with a photo of a mailer that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) was bombarding Iowans with -- an "Iowa caucus report card," listing how many of the last four caucuses the recipient had been able to vote in. "It's kind of bizarre to go out and attack us for something you're intending to do yourself," said Schultz. "It's just typical of Marco, wanting to be on every side of an issue. I've seen similar mailers in other parts of the country. I've read...

    As he prepares to make his fifth trip to argue before the U.S. Supreme Court in perhaps his most high-profile case to date, Texas Solicitor General Scott Keller is confident he and his team will prevail and stop President Obama's immigration plan from taking effect. The nation's high court will likely take up Texas v. United States in April. The arguments will focus on Obama's controversial executive order, known as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, or DAPA, which would shield more than 4 million undocumented immigrants in the country from deportation proceedings and allow them...

    In 2014, the British government reported 12 late-term unborn babies were aborted simply because they had Down syndrome. This disturbing statistic is prompting one mother of a boy with the condition to put a stop to the deadly, discriminatory practice. Sarah Roberts from Guildford, England, is a mother of three who is trying to convince others that the lives of those with Down syndrome have value. Roberts’ son Oscar has the genetic disorder. She tells Eagle radio: “A lot of the children we hang around with are typical children. They don’t necessarily notice any differences yet but I’m sure as...

    If there was one word which could describe President Obama's Presidency (aside from failure, Progressive hell, and nightmare) it would be anti-Christian. From declaring that the United States is no longer a Christian nation to denying Syrian Christians entry into the country President Obama's distaste for the followers of Jesus are as obvious as the nose on your face. But with less than a year left in his Presidency Obama hasn't given up on dissing Christians at every opportunity. For example, President Obama gave a speech at a mosque in the Islamic Society of Baltimore on Wednesday. While standing...

    In the announcement speech for his presidential campaign, Donald Trump railed against Obamacare. "We have a disaster called the big lie: Obamacare," Trump declared. "I would repeal and replace the big lie, Obamacare." Well, that sounds like something a Republican candidate would say. But there is one problem: Trump helped finance the Democratic takeover of Congress in 2006 - which put in place the liberal majority that passed Obamacare over the objections of congressional Republicans. And he continued to support a Democratic Senate majority after Obamacare...

    Donald Trump is blaming rival Ted Cruz - wrongly - for President Barack Obama's health care law. Trump says Cruz is "the one that got Justice Roberts onto the United States Supreme Court. He pushed him, he approved him and Justice Roberts approved Obamacare twice when it should have been rejected." Trump says, "Ted Cruz gave us Obamacare." Cruz did indeed support John Roberts' nomination. But Roberts was confirmed in 2005, years before Cruz was elected to the Senate. Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler says, "Trump's claim is ridiculous, especially considering that he has advocated and supported a single-payer health care...
