    Within the space of just 48 hours, the United States Supreme Court ruled that the president is above the law; that straightforward statutory words may be twisted to mean the opposite of what they say; that discrimination — heretofore, the textbook example of a willful act — can be committed unconsciously, thereby supplanting our constitutional foundation of equal opportunity for all with the totalitarian’s dream of guaranteed outcomes for favored factions; and that five politically unaccountable lawyers, by dint of being issued robes, may impose their vision of the good society on 320 million Americans, reimagining our most basic institutions,...

    "We have now sunk to a depth at which the restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men." – George Orwell Despite all the gnashing of teeth from the Left over Donald Trump’s comments about illegal aliens and liberals’ deliberate attempts to distort what he said, his controversial comments about Mexico are absolutely correct. "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. …They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems to us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people." Despite attempts to...

The independent senator from Vermont attracted more than 2,500 people to a convention center here on Friday night as part of his continued quest to lead a "political revolution" and win the Democratic nomination in a field that also includes Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    Sen. Ted Cruz shut down Univision anchor and Fusion TV host Jorge Ramos on illegal immigration, by turning a gotcha question around into a gotcha answer, and giving the host a lesson on the rule of law. “I think rule of law matters,” the Texas Republican said on Tuesday’s edition of Fusion TV’s “America with Jorge Ramos.” After the two volleyed the immigration issue back and forth, presidential candidate Cruz asked Ramos — an open advocate of legalizing the millions of illegals currently in the country — what happens to an American who crossed illegally into Mexico. When Ramos admitted...

    Chris Christie gives good speech. He definitely is a professional at passionately communicating and effectively donning “I’m a regular guy who’s pissed off about what’s going on” attire. In his announcement speech on Tuesday he certainly showed that, but there were two comments he made that are worthy of great concern–and may indicate that he is not ready for battle. Within the speech, he duly mentioned the issues that most Republicans care about: a politician who remembers for whom he works, an acknowledgement that Washington is lying and stealing from the American people, the need for the federal government to...

Despite his operatives’ best efforts the resolution vehemently opposed by McCain passed. LD2 Chair Sergio Arellano, who told the group that he personally supported closed primaries, pleaded with attendees to delay the vote until Arizona GOP head Robert Graham could address the group.

    Conservative firebrand Ann Coulter used her signature sarcasm on Twitter to proclaim herself and Donald Trump right about America’s illegal immigration problem after a young woman was killed by an illegal who had been deported five times. Her comments came after reports on Friday that the suspect, Francisco Sanchez, had already been deported five times before he shot and killed Kathryn Steinle, 32, as she walked along the San Francisco waterfront with her father Wednesday. San Francisco authorities ignored requests from immigration officials to turn him over after they arrested him months ago on drug charges and subsequently released him.

    Boldness comes more naturally to Ted Cruz than compromise. Barely through his first year in the Senate, the Texas Republican bucked his party leaders and became the public face of a government shutdown while standing up for conservative ideals. Rewind three decades back, and you'd find Cruz selling a similar message as a teenager in Houston. You could say Cruz ran with a gang in high school. Their colors were blue jacket, white shirt, red tie. They called themselves the Constitutional Corroborators. And their leader was the head of a conservative think tank named Rolland Storey, who took them around...

    Slowly but surely, some of Donald Trump‘s Republican rivals have come out to condemn his remarks about Mexican immigrant rapists and criminals. George Pataki got the ball rolling this week, and criticisms by Rick Perry, Marco Rubio, and others followed. But Ted Cruz––who defended Trump earlier this week––is still praising him. In a Meet the Press preview clip out tonight, Cruz told Chuck Todd,”I like Donald Trump. He’s bold, he’s brash.” He refused to get caught in a bout of Republican infighting. When Todd asked him if “rhetoric matters,” Cruz said, “I salute Donald Trump for focusing on the need...

Much the same is happening with Donald Trump, the billionaire Republican running for president: the media hate him, but he is surging in GOP polls. The left has a convenient, and false, explanation for all of this: America is racist, and the Republican Party...

    When Donald Trump announced for President, he made some strong statements about the immigration problems facing our nation. He said that Mexico was "bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists, and some, I assume, are good people." In essence, Trump noted that Mexico was not sending their scientists and scholars to America. In his speech, he mentioned the while immigrants are taking jobs in this country; corporations like Ford are setting up plants in Mexico. To deal with the crisis, Trump vowed to build a border fence and have Mexico pay for it. This kind of tough talk resonated with...

    The mainstream media is descending on The Donald like buzzards on carrion—and their instincts for a fresh kill are rarely wrong.  But don’t discount Donald Trump. Erick Erickson offered sage advice for the tempestuous-tempered billionaire-cum-politician to stay on offense, but I expect that Trump will rebound very soon. The “stay on offense” advice works best for politicians, but Donald Trump isn’t one.  He’s a unique personality that cuts through American culture like a chainsaw—rough, noisy, and with lots of flying pieces. Trump’s at his best when he’s talking, and fortunately for him, it’s probably his favorite pastime, other than writing...

    Presidential hopeful Donald Trump has once again come in for a barrage of criticism as a result of his comments about immigration into the United States. This time Trump has latched onto the tragic murder of tourist Kate Steinle who was shot and killed Wednesday at Pier 14 in San Francisco. Trump used the announcement of his presidential campaign to brand Mexican immigrants as “Criminals, drug runners and rapists.” Trump’s comments have been widely criticized as xenophobic and have led to his being dropped by NBC and Nascar amongst others.

Walker missed that goal by a wide margin over his first term despite an embrace of sweeping tax cuts aimed at stimulating growth. Instead, the cuts helped dig a more than $2 billion hole in the state budget.Wisconsin ranked 36th among the states and District of Columbia in the pace of private-sector job growth during Walker’s term, trailing all Rust Belt states and all but one other state in the Midwest.A PROJECTED SURPLUS TURNS INTO A DEFICIT JANUARY...

    As Gov.

Leaders or Mr. walker's party, which controls the Legislature, are balking at his demands for the state's budget. Critics say the governor's spending blueprint is aimed more at appealing to conservatives in early-voting states like Iowa than doing what is best for Wisconsin. Lawmakers are stymied over how to pay for road and bridge repairs without raising...

But it operates more like an exclusive club that brings wealthy, famous people into the Clinton orbit by fashioning fund-raising schemes to solve world problems, like climate change and poverty......the wealthy donors often get something in return — and that’s where the Clintons are running into trouble. One of the clearest examples of this involves Canadian magnate Frank Giustra, who made his pile from both filmmaking and mining. Tycoon Giustra has given the Clinton Foundation an astounding $100 million in the last decade. The Washington Post showed...

    Speaking to a room full of Republicans, Ted Cruz told them his presidential campaign would target Democrats — Reagan Democrats."We're going to rebuild the old Reagan coalition," the Texas senator said Wednesday during an appearance in Howell.But Cruz also served up plenty of modern day red meat for Republicans during his appearance during the Livingston County GOP's Lincoln Day dinner.He vowed to "repeal every word" of both Obamacare and Common Core and pledged to "always, always, always" defend religious freedom.Drawing two clear targets, Cruz also criticized what he called the "failed Obama/Clinton foreign policy."Those positions aren't much different from many...

    WASHINGTON — Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum admonished his competitors Thursday for their reactions to the Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage, saying as president he would fight to repeal the ruling and implement a law protecting religious freedoms enshrined in the First Amendment. “Many are moving on,” Santorum said of Republican reactions to the court ruling. “Well, not me. This will not stand.” The former Pennsylvania senator gave the keynote speech at a gala for the National Organization for Marriage – a conservative organization that defines marriage as between a man and a woman – Thursday in Washington.

    Sen. Ted Cruz continues to defend Donald Trump on immigration. Cruz (R-Tex.), in an interview with "Meet the Press" praised Trump for talking about immigration. Trump has made inflammatory comments about Mexican immigrants, leading Macy's and Univision to sever ties with Trump. Cruz, speaking during his book tour in Marietta, GA., said he likes Trump, whom Cruz said is "bold" and "brash." Cruz said he's not going to attack Trump. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2015/07/03/ted-cruz-continues-to-defend-donald-trump-on-immigration/

    By Richard Pollock Israel News AgencyNew York — July 3, 2015 … Civil liberty advocates are jumping all over New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s order to “review” all of Donald Trump’s city contracts because of his recent comments on Mexican immigrants. “This is not the American Way,” observed Alan Dershowitz, Harvard’s most distinguished civil liberties law professor, about the chilling effect de Blasio’s action could have on freedom of speech. “De Blasio seems to put himself directly, squarely in conflict with the First Amendment,” he told TheDCNF in an interview. At his presidential campaign kickoff, Trump said immigrants...

    The first time I interviewed Donald Trump, back in 1987, he said this: “When I go up to New Hampshire -- I'm not running for president, by the way -- I get the best crowd, the best of everything in terms of reception. “The politicians go up and get a moderate audience. I go up, and they're scalping tickets. You heard that? They're scalping tickets. Why? Because people don't want to be ripped off, and this country is being ripped off. I think if I ran, I'd win.” He has been honing this act for a long time. Many pundits—some...

NHMC CEO Alex Nogales, who had already played a role in pressuring NBC Universal to sever ties with the mogul over his controversial remarks about Mexican immigrants, responded by threatening to organize a boycott of PGA events if pro golf didn't end its relationship with Trump.

    The "mainstream media...are partisans" who protect Barack Obama and “are ready for Hillary,” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said in an interview with Glenn Beck Thursday where he criticized Republicans for wanting reporters “to like them.” For conservatives, there is no such thing as a “nice” reporter, argued Cruz. “You see Republicans, when they are interviewed by left-wing reporters, and they get afraid, they want them to like them,” Cruz said. “They are not going to like us; they hate us!” One day a young staffer described a reporter to Cruz as “really, really nice.” “You know what? No, she’s not,”...

The Democratic presidential front-runner says she will offer continuity on the policies under Obama that have worked for the vast majority of Americans.
