    The Hill ^ | 6/15/2016 | Jonathan Swan
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) attended a confidential dinner with more than 20 top conservatives on Tuesday night to plan his comeback as a movement leader in the mold of Ronald Reagan. The dinner was at the Virginia home of conservative activist Brent Bozell, and the agenda was to plot Cruz’s future and the future of the conservative movement. The undertone of the dinner was about how to position Cruz for a future tilt at the presidency and to spearhead the conservative movement from his seat in the Senate, those in attendance said. Dining with Cruz and his chief of staff,...

    The White House has identified 19 executive actions for President Barack Obama to move unilaterally on gun control, Vice President Joe Biden told a group of House Democrats on Monday, the administration’s first definitive statements about its response to last month’s mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Later this week, Obama will formally announce his proposals to reduce gun violence, which are expected to include renewal of the assault weapons ban, universal background checks and prohibition of high-capacity magazine clips. But Biden, who has been leading Obama’s task force on the response, spent two hours briefing a small group...

    You've got to hand it to bloviating Brit Piers Morgan. While he got most of the facts wrong in his recent targeting of the Second Amendment, it hasn't stopped him from moving on to even more formidable targets. Such as the Bible. He says the book is "inherently flawed" -- and needs to be amended. Piers handed down his decree while interviewing Saddleback Church pastor Rick Warren on the December 24th "Piers Morgan Tonight." Yes, on Christmas Eve. When other hosts might be discussing love, brotherhood, salvation, and all things ethereal, Captain Morgan was giving us the world according to...

CBS edited the statement out of the televised version of the interview.

    The campaign of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, which said Wednesday it had underpaid wealthy donors for use of their private jets, has another ticklish plane problem. For a campaign swing that started late last month, Mr. Perry’s campaign chartered a Gulfstream III owned by a California Mexican-food company, Marquez Brothers International, according to flight records and a Marquez Brothers executive. The same plane was used in a major cocaine-smuggling ring involving a well-known hip-hop music executive that was busted by federal officials last November, according to federal court filings. A pilot who flew the Marquez Brothers plane was among those...

    The summer’s heat waves baked the eastern United States, parts of Africa and eastern Asia, and above all Russia, which lost millions of acres of wheat and thousands of lives in a drought worse than any other in the historical record. Seemingly disconnected, these far-flung disasters are reviving the question of whether global warming is causing more weather extremes. The collective answer of the scientific community can be boiled down to a single word: probably. “The climate is changing,” said Jay Lawrimore, chief of climate analysis at the National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C. “Extreme events are occurring with...

The piece contained little evidence (perhaps because there isn't much) but leaned almost exclusively of the kind of why-not speculation popular in American punditry. Here's an excerpt: California Republicans optimistic about their prospects in November could find themselves with a bit of a problem after the votes are counted in Tuesday’s primaries -- a statewide ticket with the so-called...

Would any member of President Obama's staff dare tell him any such thing today? Watergate was Nixon's 800-pound gorilla everybody talked about, who sat there until he broke the sofa. The location of Obama's birth is an 800-pound gorilla that gets fatter every day and nobody — at least nobody in major media — likes to admit its existence. There's never been a coming-together of factors resembling this one in America's entire political history. At no point until...

The Friday list of court orders that denies or grants hearings did not mention the lawsuit, which says Mr. Obama should be disqualified from the presidency because he purportedly acquired the same British citizenship that his father had when he was born.

    The continuing efforts of a fringe group of conservatives to deny Obama his victory and to lay the basis for the claim that he is not a legitimate president is embarrassing and destructive. The fact that these efforts are being led by Alan Keyes, an unhinged demagogue on the political fringe who lost a senate election to the then unknown Obama by 42 points should be a warning in itself. This tempest over whether Obama, the child of an American citizen, was born on American soil is tantamount to the Democrats' seditious claim that Bush "stole" the election in Florida...

    Perhaps the best response came from the Anti-Defamation League, which called Coulter's comments "outrageous, offensive and a throwback to the centuries-old teaching of contempt for Jews and Judaism. The notion that Jews are religiously inferior or imperfect because they do not accept Christian beliefs was the basis for 2,000 years of church-based anti-Semitism. While she is entitled to her beliefs, using mainstream media to espouse the idea that Judaism needs to be replaced with Christianity and that each individual Jew is somehow deficient and needs to be "perfected" is rank Christian supersessionism and has been rejected by the Catholic Church...

In a column about local radio talk show host "Gunny Bob" of KOA, Kreck comments that a radio station detractor has "got a point" when he satirically said that, since McVeigh and Nichols were Christians, all Christians should be placed under surveillance because of the actions of the two bombers. The detractor was responding to talker "Gunny Bob's" idea that all Muslims in the USA should be...

    A comparison of peoples' views in 34 countries finds that the United States ranks near the bottom when it comes to public acceptance of evolution. Only Turkey ranked lower. Among the factors contributing to America's low score are poor understanding of biology, especially genetics, the politicization of science and the literal interpretation of the Bible by a small but vocal group of American Christians, the researchers say. “American Protestantism is more fundamentalist than anybody except perhaps the Islamic fundamentalist, which is why Turkey and we are so close,” said study co-author Jon Miller of Michigan State University.

    Any companies that get contracts with the City of Milwaukee will now have to file paperwork disclosing any past ties to or profits from slavery, under an ordinance signed this morning by Mayor Tom Barrett. The measure, sponsored by Ald. Michael McGee, passed the council last week on a 12-3 vote. Milwaukee is one of a handful of large cities, including Chicago and Detroit, with such a requirement. In other cities, the requirements have mainly affected banks and financial institutions, ones that over time bought out or merged with companies that had banks in the south. In many cases, large...

    Inevitably, Harriet Miers' religious views are going to get some scrutiny in the very near future, particularly since the initial reaction to her nomination from Christian Right leaders was significantly warmer than that of other conservatives. So far, all the press seems to have figured out is that she spent many years as a devoted member of a "conservative evangelical church" in suburban Dallas, and that she was raised as a (apparently nonobservant) Catholic. I did a little quick research last night on Valley View Christian Church, and also happen to know a bit about the tradition it comes from,...

    The naming of White House counsel Harriet Miers to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor has provoked serious concern among some conservatives. They worry that Miers may take positions all too similar to O'Connor's on issues like affirmative action. O'Connor was often the swing vote on controversial social issues from abortion to school prayer, and she actually wrote the majority opinion in one of the most important decisions on affirmative action in the last two decades. Writing for a 5-4 majority in a University of Michigan law school case, Grutter v. Bollinger, O'Connor upheld the use of race...

    Feds say accused triple murderer here illegally Associated Press PITTSBURGH - A man charged Sunday in a triple homicide in Altoona is a Mexican immigrant here illegally. Federal immigration authorities say 25 year-old Miguel Padilla (puh-de-ya) could have been deported long ago. They say Padilla, who lived in Gallitzin, Pennsylvania entered the country illegally when he was about 9 years-old. Authorities also say immigration agents were investigating Padilla in a criminal case when he was arrested in the triple homicide in Altoona. Altoona Police say Padilla shot and killed three men early Sunday morning after he was refused entry into...

    Why should anyone be surprised that two illegal aliens who sued the American citizens who captured them were handed the 70-acre ranch that had belonged to one of their captors? Since most illegal aliens who sneaked into this republic are rewarded for breaking the immigration law -- by being allowed to enjoy America's bounty -- no one should be surprised about the verdict. It is just another topsy-turvy thing that happens from time to time along the Mexican border. Blame it on the Bush administration's continual refusal to protect American sovereignty, which some might think borders on treason. It gets...

    EQUAL TIME: Randy Graf sees the ranch forfeiture as part of an erosion of freedoms. The rule of law is a standard we can no longer afford to bend. Without laws or equal enforcement of those laws, there is anarchy. The anarchy that exists today with regard to illegal immigration hit a new low last week. The seizure of Casey Nethercott's land in Cochise County, near Douglas, is the epitome of the brazen disregard for the rule of law that the open-border crowd has achieved. Such groups as La Raza, MEChA and the Council on Foreign Relations - all of...

    In an article entitled, "Two Illegal Immigrants Win Arizona Ranch in Court," (New York Times, 8/19/05), Andrew Pollack wrote, "The land transfer is being made to satisfy judgements in a lawsuit in which the immigrants had said that…the owner of the ranch had harmed them." Pollack quoted Morris Dees, co-founder and chief trial counsel of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) as stating, "…it's poetic justice that these undocumented workers own this land (loss of the ranch would) send a pretty important message to those who come to the border to use violence." Note that Dees, true to communist form,...

    DOUGLAS - Spent shells litter the ground at what is left of the firing range, and camouflage outfits still hang in a storeroom. Just a few months ago, this ranch was known as Camp Thunderbird, the headquarters of a paramilitary group that vowed to use force to keep illegal immigrants from sneaking across the border from Mexico. Now the 70-acre property about two miles from the border is being given to two immigrants the group caught trying to enter the United States illegally. The land transfer satisfies judgments in a lawsuit in which the immigrants had claimed that Casey Nethercott,...

    Dear Senator Clinton: About 25 years ago in Arkansas, a horrific crime occured. A nursing home operator named Juanita Broaddrick was at a conference in Little Rock. She was brutally raped by a very high state official. Ms. Broaddrick (Hickey at the time) had her upper lip brutally bitten by the rapist as he proved he could control her and she had better quit resisting. When it was over, he cooly put on sun glasses and told her, "You better put some ice on that." As perhaps the most powerful advocate for women, you have the power to solve this...
