    As for me, I'm as conservative as it gets, but Conservatives have failed me and our country. I'm counting on Mr. Trump to fix what's been broken, to keep our country safe and employed and on the road back to a spectacular recovery! I’m watching the fierce South Carolina primary contest among the six remaining candidates for POTUS and a few things strike me as astounding. The first is that all the seasoned politicians on stage—Governors Bush and Kasich, Senators Cruz and Rubio—have been relegated to straggler status by the non-politician in the race, billionaire businessman Donald Trump. (Dr. Ben...

    Politico says White House correspondent Joe Williams is on his way out the door. But the reporter who found himself ousted from his job after making a penis joke about the Romneys, accusing his own publication of blatant racism and saying the Republican nominee for president is much more comfortable around white folks isnt technically gone yet. In fact, Williams who pleaded guilty in May to assaulting his ex-wife is still employed with the company and is still using his company email.

    On New Years Day, NBC honking head Andrea Mitchell tried making America hip to the Hawkeye States unforgivable lack of hipness: The rap on Iowa: it doesnt represent the rest of the countrytoo white, too evangelical, too rural. This isnt the first time Ms. Mitchellpresumably a reporter rather than some wacked-out urban-supremacist sockpuppethas made such a statement. In 2008 she chuckled while wondering why Barack Obama would bother to campaign in Southwest Virginia: This is real [laughs] redneck, sort of, um, bordering on Appalachia country.

    ( Although more young people found jobs between April and July, the percentage of young people employed in July 2011 was the lowest July rate on record since the government started tracking the numbers in 1948. Data released on Wednesday by the Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) shows that only 48.8 percent of young people ages 16-24 were employed in July, a slightly lower percentage than last year. Youth employment typically peaks in July, as high school and college students work summer jobs and graduates take permanent jobs. In July 2011, 18.6 million 16- to 24-year-olds were...

    PHOENIX - The new top immigration enforcement official in Arizona promised Monday to do more to cut down on the number of people working illegally in this country. Alonzo Pea said he plans to start bringing criminal charges against firms that provide false papers to undocumented workers. Pea said it is not enough simply to seek civil sanctions. But Pea, who took over about two months ago as the special agent in charge of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said he also wants to work cooperatively with employers who are trying to comply with the law. Pea's comments came after a...
