    Join CWA of Illinois and other Illinois pro-life leaders this coming Thursday, September 3, for a press conference outside of Sen. Mark Kirk’s Chicago office. Earlier this month, Sen. Kirk voted AGAINST defunding Planned Parenthood despite undercover evidence of America’s largest abortion provider harvesting and haggling over the body parts of aborted children. Sen. Kirk needs to hear from Illinois pro-lifers right now.

    David Brock is a longtime Clinton ally, self-described liar and the paranoid founder of Media Matters. Some background on him:David Brock was smoking a cigarette on the roof of his Washington, D.C. office one day in the late fall of 2010 when his assistant and two bodyguards suddenly appeared and whisked him and his colleague Eric Burns down the stairs. Brock, the head of the liberal nonprofit Media Matters for America, had told friends and co-workers that he feared he was in imminent danger from right-wing assassins and needed a security team to keep him safe. The threat he faced...

    Donald Trump is returning to NBC. Not to his old show, “The Celebrity Apprentice,” but to “The Tonight Show,” where he’ll be a guest on Sept. 11. Currently leading the Republican field in the 2016 presidential race, Trump will sit down with host Jimmy Fallon to discuss his campaign and other issues, NBC announced Tuesday. Terrence Howard and Pharrell Williams will also be guests that night.

    Hillary Clinton shows signs of anger and desperation and pops out of her shell with shrill and extreme rhetoric. She should be nervous, with both the feds and rivals breathing down her neck. But she's no more effective at scaring her attackers than any other turtle under siege. She should retreat back inside, where at least her handlers can pretend she's presidential -- and inevitable. Her bunker mentality leads to unforced errors, such as irately exclaiming to Congress regarding Benghazi, "What difference, at this point, does it make?" But the more rattled she is the more she'll emerge. A few...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, the frequent recipient of attacks from Donald Trump, is out with a new video compilation of the New York businessman taking liberal positions in past interviews. The video from the Bush campaign comes a day after Trump’s campaign released a social media video drawing attention to Bush’s past statement that illegal immigration is an “act of love” while showing examples of illegal immigrants who have gone on to commit violent crimes. The video — which the campaign calls “The Real Donald Trump” — shows videos from years ago of Trump taking liberal positions on abortion,...

Now, the billionaire real estate mogul and 2016 presidential hopeful has issued a damning video, using Jeb’s own words to skewer him. The video included a clip of a speech the former Florida governor gave in which he attempted to rationalize unlawful entry into this country. “Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony,” Bush is shown saying in the clip posted to Trump’s Facebook page. “It’s a — it’s an act of love.”...

    Fair question from Amanda Carpenter: Why is Jeb knocking Trump? Those aren't his voters. Shouldn't he be trying to pick off support from Walker, Rubio, Kasich…?— Amanda Carpenter (@amandacarpenter) September 1, 2015 Why would the establishment’s guy aim his fire at Mr. Populism now? He’s better off trying to elbow Walker, Rubio, and especially Kasich out of the race early, knowing that Republicans who hate Trump will eventually line up behind whoever’s still left in the center. Jeb thinks he can win a “Trump vs. Not Trump” race — and frankly, given the mood of voters, that may be...

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton faced repeated questions about her use of a private computer server for emails while secretary of state during her recent Las Vegas news conference. Her discomfort with the topic was evident — especially if you compare her facial expressions in Las Vegas to her June 13 campaign launch announcement in New York. You can see the sharp contrast if you watch both events with the sound off, focusing on Clinton’s facial expressions and body language. Clinton is described, by both supporters and critics, as “brainy,” “tough” both personally and politically. In Las Vegas, however, her...

    In my last column, I looked at the possibility of two impossible things -- impossible things in the sense used by Alice and the Red Queen -- happening in the already turbulent 2016 presidential cycle. Here I'll look at another: the possibility that the partisan division lines that have endured with little change for two decades might suddenly shift and change. This has happened before. History teaches two lessons pointing in opposite directions: Partisan divisions can stay the same for a long time. And they can change suddenly and without much warning. There's no question that partisan divisions have shifted...

David Petraeus, who ultimately took a job as CIA director in the Obama administration instead of running for president in 2012 and was then driven out of government by scandal. Clinton--who's now the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination next year--sounded intrigued when her longtime friend Sidney Blumenthal reported to her on a Saturday morning in February 2010 that prominent Washington foreign policy blogger Steve Clemons said Petraeus was talking frankly about the possibility of...

Which brings us to Donald Trump, another loud, over-the-top, brash personality. According to the latest Quinnipiac University national poll, when Republicans were asked who they would vote for if the primary for president were held today, Trump finished first. When asked who they definitely would not support for the nomination, the very same Donald Trump finished first again. Being a polarizing figure didn’t hurt Howard Cosell. Even...

    It seems that every week we hear about one senseless public shooting after another. After each incident, advocates on both sides of the firearms issue come out, guns blazing, trying to frame the incident in a way that supports their views on the Second Amendment. ADVERTISEMENT What I find mystifying is when politicians contradict themselves on these issues that they claim to be so passionate about, revealing double standards. President Obama recently said, “The United States of America is the one advanced nation on earth in which we do not have sufficient common-sense, gun-safety laws. Even in the face of...

    Those putting party over country try to conceal their votes from the public. Democratic senators supporting President Obama’s disastrous nuclear deal with Iran are cowards. They know that a majority of Americans oppose the deal. Thus, they are running for cover to avoid going on the record and voting against a resolution disapproving the deal. A filibuster to block a vote on the merits altogether is the Democratic Senate caucus’s preferred way out. The White House is reportedly pushing the filibuster strategy even though Obama is virtually certain to have enough votes to sustain a veto of a resolution of...

    Even if the Democrats had a strong candidate running, after eight years of the worst President in American history, the smart money would still have to be on a Republican winning the presidency in 2016. Unfortunately for the Left, instead of a strong candidate Democrats have a crook and a Commie dogfighting it out to be their nominee. With that as a background, you start to understand why Democrats could view a candidate as ridiculous as Joe Biden as a potential savior. Of course for Democrats, the problem with having Joe Biden defeat Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders to become...

Now Castańeda and others fear Trump's talk about erecting a "big beautiful wall" at the border and deporting millions could make it near impossible to find the guest workers they need, and who would obtain legal status under most comprehensive reforms bills. "There are growers out there screaming for labor," said Castańeda, a farm labor contractor in San Luis Obispo County in central California. "The people who are coming...

    1. He's advancing a populist economic message Tax-cutting and deregulation have been key parts of Republican orthodoxy since the days of Ronald Reagan. Mr Trump isn't reading from that particular hymnal, however. Instead he preaches a populist salvation for the economically disaffected. Poll after poll shows economic security is the most important issue for Republican voters, and Mr Trump's entire message - his anti-illegal-immigration stance, his condemnation of Chinese and Mexican trade practices, his calls for taxation of Wall Street hedge fund managers and his constant touting of his resume as a successful businessman and "job-creator" - is built around...

    A person may not have to "see color" to be racist. Some blind people, just like sighted people, make judgments about others based on their race, according to a new study. The findings come from interviews conducted in person and over the phone with 25 people who were either born blind or severely visually impaired, or who lost their sight as children or adults. A researcher asked the participants, most of whom lived in the northeast United States, about whether they thought about race and also how it affected their feelings about a person.

Johnson. A recent Quinnipiac national poll showed Trump lapping the field with 28 percent of those surveyed saying they support him. Paul, who...
  • Dr. Ben Carson's response to a 10-year old boy-Amazing!

    Published on Nov 10, 2014 Dr. Ben Carson's amazing response to a question asked by a 10-year old boy! Dr. Benjamin Carson, Sr., M.D., had a childhood dream of becoming a physician. Growing up in a single parent home and being challenged by dire poverty, poor grades, a horrible temper, and low self-esteem appeared to preclude the realization of that dream, until his mother, with only a third-grade education, challenged her sons to strive for excellence. At age 33, he became the youngest major division director in Johns Hopkins history, as director of pediatric neurosurgery. Dr. Carson became famous for...

    A super PAC supporting Auditor Adam Edelen’s re-election bid has released a Web ad using audio of an MSNBC segment lauding the incumbent Democrat’s speech at Fancy Farm this year. The two-minute video, titled “Big, Important Things,” features MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, on her Aug. 21 program, calling Edelen “the best southern Democratic politician I have seen speak at an event like this (Fancy Farm) since (former Texas Gov.) Ann Richards, since Bill Clinton in his prime.” The ad also includes portions of Edelen’s speech and footage of him at Fancy Farm events. Kentuckians for Honesty in Government released the video...

    Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy. I knew Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy. Watch it on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-7gpgXNWYIWhat could Day Quayle have learned from Donald Trump?This is the Dan Quayle who, in an alternate universe, escaped from his handlers, and showed that he's really an intelligent guy.Senator Bentson, if Jack Kennedy could rise from the grave this moment, see a Democrat party that is the thrall of the abortion industry and homosexualists, he would think that the Communists had taken over his beloved party. If there's anything the American people are...

    Hillary Clinton is a very accessible human being, at least according to a woman who paid $1,000 for the chance to eat rubber chicken and rub elbows in the Hamptons with the Democratic Presidential candidate. Hillary, herself, is in East Hampton for a much-needed vacation away from the filthy masses, and while there, she's raising money from her rich neighbors. The fundraiser in question was held on the grounds of the Patricof estate, owned by venture capitalist Alan Patricof, chairman of Apex Partners. Guest feasted on incredibly expensive chocolate chip pancakes, as their precious little hooligans played in a private...

    Real estate mogul Donald Trump has broadened his lead over his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination, a new poll shows, as more Republican voters begin to see the bombastic billionaire in a favorable light. The Morning Consult survey shows Trump leading among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents with 37 percent of the vote, compared with just nine percent for the second-place finishers, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) are tied for the next spot with six percent. Former Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) claims...

    The political 501(c )(4) group Americans for Prosperity is jumping into the fall election cycle with an ad attempting to tie Democratic gubernatorial nominee Jack Conway to President Barack Obama and the Affordable Care Act. The ad, first reported by the Lexington Herald-Leader, launched Monday in what AFP told the newspaper is a “hefty” six-figure ad buy. AFP is supported by the billionaire ultra-conservative Koch brothers. “Jack Conway chose Washington insiders over Kentucky families when he decided not to take Obamacare to court — now we are yolked with double-digit premium increases and thousands of lost jobs,” Julia Crigler, state...

    RUSH: Okay, a little detail here in Iowa. This is a Monmouth University telephone poll August 27th through the 30th of 405 Iowans likely to attend the Hawkeye Cauci. The margin of error is +/- 4.9 points. So margin of error is +/- 5, and it's astounding. Ben Carson and Donald Trump are tied in this poll, 23% each. "Most Iowa Republicans prefer someone without a traditional political pedigree, according to the analysis at Monmouth University poll. This is now the first time since July 26th that poll in first four nominating states has shown Trump without a nominal lead."...

    I can't post the link yet, but I just watched blowhard and Krauthammer lower the boom on Donald Trump, saying he never criticizes Obama or any other democrat and the others can't get their REAL message out because of him. Krauthammer was the most outrageous. He got so mad he started stuttering saying how Trump is the greatest thing ever to happen to democrats. Two of the biggest blowhards I have ever heard in my life and I'll be surprised if Trump takes this bold-faced lie from them without replying. Of course he has slammed Obama and Clinton. That's been...

    When it comes to conservatives, liberal media types are lately really letting their snobbery show. Last week, as we reported here, John Fugelsang referred to conservatives as "rubes" who Fox News worked to keep in its "paddock." Today, it was Mike Barnicle's turn to display his disdain. Guest-hosting on With All Due Respect, Barnicle declared "I would want to live as far away as possible" from the 53% of Iowa Republican voters who favor anti-establishment candidates Trump, Carson, Fiorina and Cruz.

    I just got this email from the Walker campaign. "My friend, Our opponents have hit a new low. Now I can’t even order a cheesesteak without being accosted by virulent protesters. Yes, you heard that right -- protestors tried to interrupt a recent campaign stop in Philadelphia by shouting and holding up vulgar signs." I'm sorry, but doesn't this sound weak and whiny??? If you want to be President shouldn't you be able to handle some punk protesters? How are you going to handle Putin? Mexico?, Pelosi?....your K street masters?
