  • Trump Tells His Super PAC to Give Back Money, As He's Seen More Likely to Be the Republican Nominee

    RUSH: Donald Trump has told people to stop giving money to his PACs and he's asked the PACs to give the money back. Donald Trump doesn't want anybody to think that money is influencing anything he's doing, other people's money. Now, a PAC, a candidate cannot coordinate with a PAC. The PACs raise money and do with it what they want, supposedly without any contact with the candidate. It's expressly forbidden by law. Now, we know that laws have never stopped people. There have been allegations over the years that there's been coordination. But Trump is actually saying, "Give the...

    Utah lawmakers introduced a landmark bill Wednesday that bars discrimination against gay and transgender individuals while protecting the rights of religious groups and individuals. The measure has a rare stamp of approval from the Mormon church and stands a high chance of passing in Utah, where the church is based and many state lawmakers and the Republican governor are members of the faith.

    President Barack Obama is so wedded to his liberal policies that he can’t comprehend the meaning of the attacks against us in Libya and Egypt — radical Islam is at war with us, says former GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich. The president and his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton condemned the “senseless” violence, he notes on Politico. “This concept of ‘senseless violence’ is at the heart of the left’s refusal to confront the reality of radical Islamists,” the former House speaker says. “These are not acts of senseless violence. These are acts of war. . . . It is tragic...

Popular picks include “In Sluts We Trust,” “Proud Father of a Slut,” “You Can Call Me Slut,” “I Believe In Slut,” and “Pro-Slut.”Naturally, the Boulder, Colo. companies have topped off the campaign with an oath for unified sluts:I believe that sex...

    Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign and the super PAC accepting million-dollar contributions to support him are barred by law from coordinating, yet they share many of the same top-level workers, a fact both groups have helped mask by paying high-level aides through companies that appear to exist largely as conduits to avoid disclosure. Months before a top Romney aide, Steve C. Roche, stopped working for the campaign, a company controlled by Mr. Roche was established and has since been paid $2 million by the super PAC, with a million-dollar check coming just three days after the last money publicly disbursed to...

    The Chicago Tribune seems to fancy itself in the role of kingmaker when it comes to knocking candidates out of political races, and helping hometown politicians it favors to win. Its latest effort has targeted Rudy Giuliani, who all but officially entered the race for the Republican nomination for President in 2008 this week. Within two days of his announcement, a lengthy "investigative" piece appeared on the front page of the paper trashing Giuliani for his high speaking fees and some questionable business clients in the years since he entered the private sector. The hit piece authored by Andrew Zajac...

    The Mark Foley scandal, which last fall threatened to kill the congressional page program, has had the opposite effect: Interest from teenagers in the program is on the upswing. Congressional officials attribute the increase to the old adage that there is no such thing as bad publicity. Whatever the reason, it is now clear that the national uproar over Foley's sexually explicit e-mails -- which led to the Florida congressman's resignation and contributed to the GOP majority's rout in 2006 -- has hardly chilled the ambitions of young people who want to work on Capitol Hill. Some members, including Rep....

They are getting hundreds of liberal bloggers to participate in a drill where they are getting advertisers to pull advertising off of conservative radio station KSFO.

    Anyone remembering the ascent of Newt Gingrich to House speaker in 1995 surely noticed a difference between media coverage of that historic event and Nancy Pelosi taking the gavel back for the Democrats in 2007. One had all the joy of a child's funeral. The other was "New Year's Rockin' Eve." CNN even had a countdown clock to the Democrats regaining the majority. All that was missing was a lighted crystal donkey that would descend down a pole on the top of the Capitol dome. CNN's Dana Bash called Pelosi's gavel grab a "moment to savor," surely true for her...

    'On the nose" is a Hollywood expression. It refers to a scene or a piece of dialogue that is too obvious or too good to be true.

Let's start with the fact that this confessed gay stalker of teenage congressional pages was co-chairman of the Congressional Missing and Exploited Children's Caucus. All over Hollywood, fingers would go to the tip of the nose: Can't we make it Armed Services? No, we cannot. To change anything at all about the Foley matter would be to trifle with...

  • Ways to Avoid Becoming “Scapegoat In Chief” - (Director of Nat'l Intel, John Negroponte's task)

    04/30/2005 4:37:22 PM PDT · by CHARLITE · 210+ views
    You have to feel sorry for John Negroponte. As the new Director of National Intelligence (DNI), Negroponte will coordinate the activities of 15 different intelligence agencies. But he begins his job in an almost impossible position: He’s responsible for all American intelligence activity in the world, but doesn’t have a clear idea of how much power he actually has. Rumor has it that several candidates turned down the job because of its inherent weaknesses. A few observers are so skeptical that they have privately renamed the DNI the “scapegoat in chief.” They think he’ll inevitably take the blame for the...

    I would like to make a point about the election that I think has been missed by all the pundits. Why was it as close as it was? The 9/11 attacks have been widely cited as helping Bush. They certainly did give him an opportunity to prove his leadership, but they also hurt him in another very important respect that nobody seems to realize. They sucker-punched the U.S. economy just as we were trying to come out of a recession. The economy is still a very important factor in Presidential elections whether we realize it or not. Had the 9/11...

U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly ordered the Federal Election Commission (news - web sites) to write new rules to govern key aspects of fund raising, including when candidates and outside parties can coordinate activities. The judge did not specifically address how candidates and political parties in the heat of current campaign should act in the absence of the rules. The law's main provisions, banning...

    Can there be such a thing as a conspiracy in the media? There was a lot of talk about that last week. We prefer, however, to call it coordination, rather than conspiracy. Liberal groups have already spent nearly $70-million on anti-Bush TV ads. Little is mentioned about that by the liberal national media corps. But, let one relatively small group of citizens run a couple 30 second spots against Kerry and all hell breaks loose in the media. The reason was that the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth had spent about a half-million bucks in TV spots describing Kerry's lies...
