    NY Post ^ | February 7, 2016 | Mark Cannizzaro
    The dab is dead until further notice. There would be no dabbing on this night for Cam Newton -- the biggest night of his NFL career, a night when the Panthers superstar was attempting to complete one of the greatest seasons a quarterback has ever delivered. As it does for every team that loses the Super Bowl, the end came in an almost violent abruptness. Broncos 24, Panthers 10 in Super Bowl 50 Sunday night at Levi's Stadium sucked the life from every one of the Carolina players, but none more than Newton, who'd been so brilliant all season. Newton,...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, appearing weary of spending his interview time discussing rival Marco Rubio, told "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace he isn't privy to the meetings of the press that have declared the Florida senator a big winner in the GOP presidential race. "Chris, there is some secret squirrel meeting that you guys get to where you decide who wins and who loses," Bush said on the program Sunday morning, a day after the latest GOP debate. "Marco Rubio came in third place in Iowa, and he was coronated. I can't control that. I'm just going to...

    Ted Cruz unloaded on his rival Donald Trump after the real estate mogul accused him of voter fraud over Twitter. "I wake up every day and laugh at the latest thing Donald has tweeted," said Cruz, calling Wednesday’s outburst a "Trumpertantrum" brought on by Trump's inability to "debate the substance." On Wednesday morning, Trump sent out a series of tweets demanding the caucus results in Iowa be nullified due to what he claimed was voter fraud perpetrated by the Cruz campaign. In particular, Trump singled out reports that the Cruz campaign told voters during the caucus Dr. Ben Carson had...

    After accusing Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) of "illegally" stealing a win from the Iowa caucuses, Donald Trump said Wednesday that he'll "probably" sue over the results of the vote.

"What [Cruz] did is unthinkable," Trump said, later stating that Cruz was a "really fraudulent" character. Earlier in the day, Trump fired off a raging tweetstorm accusing Cruz of cheating in Iowa.

They also complained about feeling disillusioned over the last two weeks. It was unclear whether this related to the recent beheadings of two American journalists.

Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there.

    "Go f yourself," Boehner repeated. Politico reports on the exchange: House Speaker John Boehner couldnt hold back when he spotted Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the White House lobby last Friday. It was only a few days before the nation would go over the fiscal cliff, no bipartisan agreement was in sight, and Reid had just publicly accused Boehner of running a dictatorship in the House and caring more about holding onto his gavel than striking a deal. Go f yourself, Boehner sniped as he pointed his finger at Reid, according to multiple sources present. Reid, a bit startled,...

    House Speaker John Boehner (R.-Ohio) said on Friday that he was not afraid of losing his speakership in the aftermath of the stunning defeat dealt to him on Thursday evening by House conservatives who refused to vote for his Plan B proposal to increase the income tax rate on income over $1 million. When a reporter asked Boehner at a Capitol press conference whether he should be concerned about losing his speakership, Boehner said, No, Im not. Listen, youve all heard me say this, and Ive told my colleagues this, if you do the right things every day for the...

    A cadet quitting West Point less than six months before graduation says he could no longer be part of a culture that promotes prayers and religious activities and disrespects nonreligious cadets. Blake Page announced his decision to quit the U.S. Military Academy this week, telling The Associated Press that he could not become an officer because of clinical depression played a role in his public protest against what he calls the unconstitutional prevalence of religion in the military. "I've been trying since I found that out: What can I do? What can I possibly do to initiate the change that...

    The Pravda-like corrupt national media, Zombie voters and dirty shenanigans are no excuse for losing this election because unfortunately these were a giving no matter who was the nominee - from Romney to Santorum to Newt or even if Sarah had ran and became the nominee - these things would have happen and for anyone to have beaten Obama but we would expect our nominee to have a strategy to negate or at least lessen these handicaps. If we can't even do that then we ought to just shut the whole thing down and cede the country if we can't...

    On Wednesday night, former president Bill Clinton gave a long-winded address (as is his wont few like the sound of their own voice more than him, with the possible exception of Fidel Castro) in an attempt to make an excuse for the current presidents pathetic job performance on the economy. Here is the essence of his argument: President Obama started with a much weaker economy than I did. No president not me, not any of my predecessors could have repaired all the damage in just four years. So is it true? Well, first of all, the statement...

    On Friday, the musical act R.E.M. sent a letter to the Fox News Channel insisting that it stop using its song Losing My Religion in its news coverage specifically this weeks Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. We have little or no respect for their puff adder brand of reportage. Our music does not belong there, lead singer Michael Stipe said in a statement. Late Friday afternoon, Fox News returned the volley by arguing they were within their legal requirements and suggested it was a publicity stunt by R.E.M.....

    Barack Obamas increasingly desperate struggle to win re-election is causing some of his worst traits to be put on display, including petulance and self-pity. The latest example occurred during a fundraiser in Baltimore, when the president said, Because folks are still hurting right now, the other side feels that its enough for them to just sit back and say, Things arent as good as they should be, and its Obamas fault. This is rich. No president in human history has quite equaled Obama when it comes to blaming others for his problems....
