    Daily Caller ^ | 11:38 AM 05/05/2016 | Alex Pappas
    After acknowledging he will now raise money for the general election, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has named a national finance chairman who has a history with some organizations that could clash with his conservative populist message. On Thursday, Trump named Steven Mnuchin, the chairman and CEO of private investment firm Dune Capital Management LP, to lead his fundraising. Mnuchin, according to his Bloomberg profile, was a partner at Goldman Sachs, where he worked for 17 years. He also worked at Soros Fund Management LLC, founded by liberal mega-donor George Soros. During the primary, Trump criticized rival Ted Cruz...

    Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid vows that a Democratic takeover of the Senate is fairly certain in the November elections. Discussing the race for president, Reid said he was confident that Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton would win the party's nomination and then the general election. He stressed her intelligence and ability to grasp the issues on a wide variety of subjects. Reid harshly criticized Republican front-runner Donald Trump, saying that he "can't imagine how the establishment Republicans feel about somebody whos about as far from anything that anyone believes in as Donald Trump. I cant imagine this man being the...

    If they care more about students than teachers unions, every school district in the country needs to pay attention to this: When Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker gave the boot to teachers unions, liberals predicted a disaster of apocalyptic proportions: Teachers quitting, slack-jawed, uneducated students meandering down vacant downtowns that closed shop. It turns out, though, that Walkers Act 10 may have been the best thing to happen to schools and teachers in decades. Thats because not only is teacher pay up for the best students, but without burdensome union rules, school administrators are empowered to make real changes they need...

    Monday, May 02, 2016 Taxpayer-funded financial aid for immigrant college tuition heads to IL House SPRINGFIELD - Two Republican state senators - Christine Radogno and Chris Nybo - crossed the aisle last week to support the Democrats' effort to provide taxpayer-funded financial assistance for undocumented immigrant students. The measure would add Illinois to the five states that grant immigrant students financial aid for college education regardless of their legal status. Already, Illinois is one of 18 states that allows any status immigrants to qualify for lower in-state tuition and set up private college funds. SB 2196 easily passed the Illinois...

    BALTIMORE Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders used a campaign stop Saturday in this economically challenged city to decry the difference between the life expectancies of the nations rich and poor, declaring that poverty is a death sentence. If you are born in Baltimores poorest neighborhood, your life expectancy is almost 20 years shorter than if youre born in its wealthiest neighborhood, the senator from Vermont said, adding that 15 neighborhoods in Baltimore have lower life expectancies than North Korea. Two of them have a higher infant mortality rate than Palestine's West Bank. Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, promised an...

    The Census should be demanding more information about gender identity, leading liberal lawmakers said Wednesday, asking the agency to start including more probing questions to get at the increasingly complex family dynamics in America. Many federal data collection instruments gather respondents race, ethnicity, sex, marital status and other personal demographic information. However, most of these instruments do not include direct measures of respondents sexual orientation or gender identity, Rep. Raul Grijalva and Sen. Tammy Baldwin said in a letter they led, and which was co-signed by dozens of their Democratic colleagues.

    I have noticed that pro-life people are frequently asked why they believe in the death penalty, but not abortion. That answer is simple. There is a vast difference between the pure life of the unborn and a criminal who has evilly taken someone else's life. And those Leftists, who believe in the 'Death with Dignity' meme, rail against those of us who believe in the 2nd Amendment.

    Cameron Lancaster Senate Republicans blocked a slate of President Obama's lower court nominees Tuesday. Democratic Sens. Mazie Hirono (Hawaii),Charles Schumer (N.Y.) and Ben Cardin (Md.) asked for consent four times to bring up a total of 11 judicial nominations Tuesday, arguing that the pace of confirmation votes has created a backlog. "The judicial confirmation process has been at a crawl for years. Now it has come to a functional standstill," said Schumer, who is expected to be the next Senate Democratic leader. The Senate's top Republicans teamed up to block the Democratic efforts. Majority LeaderMitch McConnell objected to requests...

    House Democrats on Tuesday released letters from Pentagon officials that they said should put an end to silly speculation generated by Republicans that protecting a bird known as the greater sage-grouse could hamstring the U.S. military. They're hoping the new information persuades lawmakers to oppose a GOP provision in the annual defense policy bill that would block the Obama administration from protecting the sage-grouse under the Endangered Species Act for 10 years. The measure also would prevent implementation of land-use plans by the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management to conserve the sage-grouse and its habitat.

If the State Department disclosed the email when first supposedly found, Clintons email server and her hidden emails would have been disclosed nearly two years ago, before Clinton authorized the alleged deletion of tens of thousands of emails.

    Assembly Bill 2459, sponsored by Assembly Member Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento) would institute such draconian regulations on firearms vendors that most, perhaps all, would be driven out of business. This is okay by McCarty, though, because "it would draw a distinct line between the duly authorized and armed police and the outlaws who possess guns." "Let's say that all legitimate gun dealers shutdown," McCarty speculated. "There would be no legal way for a law-abiding citizen to obtain a firearm. The only available source would be an illegal street purchase. In one fell swoop, my bill would convert everyone with a gun...

    Could the next president of the United States be neither Clinton, Trump, Cruz, or Kasich ... but Thomas Perez? Its far more likely than you might think.

However, Roosevelts handpicked successor William Howard Taft refused to yield. Because of the split, even though the Democrats dour, arrogant Woodrow Wilson won fewer popular votes than perennial failed...

But the gender gap persists within both parties. An aggregated analysis of March and April responses shows that Republican men are eight points more likely than Republican women to be following the election very closely, while Democratic men are 11 points more likely than Democratic women. “Pure” independents — those who do not lean to either party — are following the news less closely than those in either party, regardless of gender,...

Just 6 percent of people say they have a lot of confidence in the media, putting the news industry about equal to Congress and well below the public's view of other institutions. In this presidential campaign year, Democrats were more likely to trust the news media than Republicans or independents. But trust today also goes beyond the traditional journalistic principles of accuracy, balance and fairness. Faced with ever-increasing sources of...

    When signing the bill raising Californias minimum wage, Governor Jerry Brown called the new $15 minimum wage good politics but questionable policy. He may be more prescient than many realize. There was a time in recent American history when a minimum wage of nearly equal magnitude to Californias was imposed, and good politics turned out to be disastrous policy. It is worth remembering this previous minimum-wage experiment as voters assess whether the progressive push for substantially higher minimum wages will deliver prosperity for the working class. President Obama has long supported the so-called Raise the Wage Act, which, if passed,...

    Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass) brushed off fears that a runaway national debt could pose a threat to America.

"The government has already gotten and spent that money for the benefit of America. Whether it ever pays this money back is basically irrelevant." "Let's imagine that, 'horror of horrors,' the government defaults on this debt," Markey continued. "Who's hurt? The people who lent the money to the government by buying bonds can obviously afford to lose this money. People who need their...
