    In a February post titled, It’s Not Just the GOP – The Democratic Party is Also Imploding, I noted the following: Yes, of course, Trump winning the GOP nomination marks the end of the party as we know it. After all, some neocons are already publicly and actively throwing their support behind Hillary. While this undoubtably represents a major turning point in U.S. political history, many pundits have yet to appreciate that the exact same thing is happening within the Democratic Party. It’s just not completely obvious yet. While it might sound strange, a coronation of Hillary Clinton in the...

    Hypocrisy. As you probably have heard, Hillary has changed her mind and is now opting not to debate Bernie Sander ahead of the California primary. The event was to be held by Fox News, sometime between now and June 7th. Fox is none too pleased, and they issued the following statement: “Naturally, Fox News is disappointed that Secretary Clinton has declined our debate invitation, especially given that the race is still contested and she had previously agreed to a final debate before the California primary.”

    The Hill ^ | 5/24/2016 | Alexander Bolton
    Democrats on Capitol Hill are discussing whether Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz should step down as Democratic National Committee chairwoman before the party’s national convention in July. Democrats backing likely presidential nominee Hillary Clinton worry Wasserman Schultz has become too divisive a figure to unify the party in 2016, which they say is crucial to defeating presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump in November. Wasserman Schultz has had an increasingly acrimonious relationship with the party’s other presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders, and his supporters, who argue she has tilted the scales in Clinton’s favor. “There have been a lot of meetings over the...

    However much you may not like the choices, silencing your own voice is by far the worst thing you can do. As disgruntled Republican voters and disappointed Democrat voters languish over a choice between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, some of them are saying it’s voting for the lesser of two evils, or, they’re not voting at all. And that’s a problem. For those determined to avoid evils, they’re missing something huge.

She lied about Benghazi. She denies that there is some “there there” in the email scandal, and a list of other denials and deceptive statements.

    California Sen. Dianne Feinstein warned that Bernie Sanders' intention to take his candidacy to the Democratic convention in July could spark unrest similar to the chaotic 1968 convention in Chicago and the riots surrounding it. "It worries me a great deal," Feinstein told CNN's Manu Raju. "You know, I don't want to go back to the '68 convention, because I worry about what it does to the electorate as a whole -- and he should, too." Her comments were the latest evidence that Democrats are increasingly fretting that the divide between supporters of Sanders and backers of Hillary Clinton will...

    Party Politics: Every day there are stories about how deeply troubled the Republican Party is with Donald Trump as its presumptive candidate. But, if anything, the Democratic Party is in far worse shape. Think about it. Democrats still can't decide if Hillary Clinton is electable - in fact, her support has diminished as the primary season has dragged on. There are fears of a party revolt by Bernie Sanders supporters at the July convention, and there’s a huge rift forming between two of its major factions. Plus, polls show that the supposedly can't-possibly-win Donald Trump is now close to Clinton....

As with a MacGuffin in the movie, only the Hero's emotional response to the MacGuffin matters. Again and again, Matthews and his panel focused not on weighty questions of state, but on what toll these important-sounding MacGuffins took upon the Star of the Picture, Barack...

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced the Democratic appointments to the panel earlier this week. “I am proud to name six strong champions of women, families and facts to stand up against the latest Republican assault on women’s health,” Pelosi said in a statement. “Hard-working families deserve better than a taxpayer-funded Republican Select Committee fixated on dismantling women’s health.

Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief saw this back in February, in a piece delineating how alike the two men were on numerous policies.

Meanwhile, at a massive rally in Long Island, Donald Trump, who's polling ahead of Cruz in New York by a...

    Bernie Sanders and his young supporters say, “No worries, we’re democratic socialists.” Outsiders say, “No problem, they barely know what socialism is.” Others see Sanders’s movement as a passing response to an economic downturn. All of this is largely mistaken. Modern American socialism is decidedly undemocratic; its young acolytes are far less ignorant of socialism than they appear; and contemporary socialism is more of a religious than an economic phenomenon. Distracted by the disturbing rise of Donald Trump, liberals and conservatives alike are responding far too complacently to a recrudescent socialist movement that is destined to harm our democracy. *********snip***********...

    Morse Arberry Jr. never made good on the $121,545 he promised to pay back in 2011 after illegally funneling campaign contributions from a Nevada Assembly run into his personal bank account. The North Las Vegas Democrat struck a deal in October 2011, pleading to a misdemeanor charge of fraudulent appropriation of property. In exchange, six felony charges were dropped and he avoided jail. As part of the deal, Arberry agreed to pay the state the same amount as restitution, plus a $1,000 fine. The disgraced former assemblyman is again running for public office. Last week he filed as a candidate...

    I don't know who wrote this, but it is fantastic! Many have asked me if I support the republican party? Here is a letter I sent to the RNC… You be the judge… Dear Representative, From the time I was able to vote I voted republican.

I received your questionnaire and request for money and strongly agree with every question as I have since Obama was elected. Unfortunately the one question that...

    On Feb. 16, Gov. Steve Bullock flew to Missoula from Helena to conduct “state” business, which also happened to “conveniently” coincide with a campaign event, using the state’s turboprop airplane, at a cost of not less than $1,000/hour. A 115-mile drive, it’s probably an 80-mile flight; not the type of flight for which this plane is designed. More offensive is that he’s flying to a destination that includes a campaign event, using state equipment/taxpayer funds to do so. This has been an ongoing practice of this governor (the same modus operandi recently used for campaign events in Billings and Bozeman)....
