  • Ben Carson: Flying Planes Into Twin Towers 'Didn't Require a Great Deal of Sophistication'

    Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson doubled down on his previous language this morning, saying that al Qaeda was not an existential threat to the United States in 2001 and 2003. Today, he told ABC News that ISIS is more of a threat now than al Qaeda was in 2001 and 2003. "They weren’t nearly as developed as they are now -- at that point,” Carson said in response to an ABC News question. "That was my point. This is so much greater a threat than that was.” Carson also said the attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001...

    From Friday's program: (11/13/15 13:40) I want to say something briefly and then I'll move along. If Donald Trump continues to attack Ben Carson the way he is currently attacking Ben Carson, I have to affirmatively oppose him. I like the man very much, but the absolute reckless, personal assaults on Ben Carson, who's one of the most decent men you could possibly know. And I only know him from the public airwaves --a truly accomplished man, is simply unacceptable to me; unacceptable to me. I've never heard this kind of slurring of a man of great integrity. That's number...

    In 2016, there are 14 Republican presidential candidates for whom Ronald Reagan is both the benchmark for conservative values and the lodestar of conservative ideas. Theres also one who wrote, in the second to last year of Reagans presidency, that he had been so smooth, so effective a performer that only now, seven years later, are people beginning to question whether theres anything beneath that smile. The gadfly was Donald Trump, writing in his book The Art of the Deal. But it wasnt just a glancing blow; to promote the book, Trump launched a political campaign that tore into Reagans...

    Walker has already done some flipping during the unofficial days of his campaign. As Breitbart News reported in March, the Wisconsin governor endorsed a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants then, but later on toughened his stance. Conservatives may accept that Walker has really flipped on illegal immigration, but many are not buying his current stance on Common Core. Walker has had many positions on the controversial education reform, but statements from his press office over the past several months, consistent with his political strategy, always contain the popular buzzword local when it comes to education: Governor Walker wants high...

    The second day of the New Hampshire Republican Partys First in the Nation leadership summit kicked off Saturday morning with a speech from MSNBCs Joe Scarborough, a former GOP congressman. As you might expect, the reception was lukewarm at first especially when he tried to land a series of fratboy-ish jokes but became much warmer when he talked actual policy and tried to stir the crowd into rallying around conservative principles for the 2016 election. But lets run through his awkward jokes: Scarborough approached the stage to noticeably tepid applause (though, to be fair, this was the first...

    Mitt Romney will endorse Monica Wehby Thursday in the Oregon GOP Senate primary. Dr. Wehby is the kind of leader Oregon needs someone who has strong experience outside of government, who can bring trust and accountability back to Washington, the 2012 Republican nominee says in a forthcoming statement, shared first with POLITICO. Dr. Wehby is putting forward a positive and conservative vision for her campaign that will make Oregonians proud. National Republicans are enthusiastic about Wehby, a Portland pediatric neurosurgeon who they hope can put the blue state in play if 2014 becomes a wave election. Before she can...

    Ann Romney strongly advocated that her husband consider Condoleezza Rice as his vice-presidential running mate, according to campaign fundraising sources. 'I know that Ann Romney was intrigued by the idea of having Condi on the ticket,' a top Romney fundraiser with close personal ties to the Romneys told MailOnline. 'At the Utah fundraiser, she gave an unbelievable speech. 'Ann is a sounding board for Mitt. He values her intuition. Their relationship is the real deal.

  • Sellout: Santorum Proves Hes Just Another Washington Insider

    In my estimation, the hallmark of the true politician, the true Washington insider, is the intentional evasion of responsibility and/or blame the sin of omission. By this standard, Rick Santorum, in the end, is nothing but a typical two-bit political hack. For all his bloviating and posturing, painting himself as a true conservative, selling his alleged genuineness and values a regular Joe Santorum has shown his true colors by failing to endorse when it could have made a difference. Plainly, he is avoiding the ire of the GOP establishment by not endorsing Gingrich, and he is avoiding...

    FAIRFIELD, Calif. Republican leaders and voters, frustrated by their party's prolonged presidential contest, are increasingly coalescing behind front-runner Mitt Romney. Yet Rick Santorum on Thursday urged conservatives not to forsake their principles under pressure. He did so by conjuring the memory of Ronald Reagan, still the conservative icon, at an oddly symbolic place: the jelly bean factory that created the former president's favorite treats. "Let them know, conservatives all across this country have not given up the fight, we're not going to concede to the moderate establishment who wants to convince everybody that it's over, it's time to go...

Politically, these are all synergistic. The bipartisan nature of the tax deal instantly repositioned Obama back to the center. And just when conventional wisdom decided the...

    He's more fiscal, less social. And he's got millions. But will GOP voters give a Mitt? Scott Brown's unexpected victory in last month's special US Senate election captured the attention of the country and particularly of core Republican voters, who huddled eagerly before their TV screens to watch their hero du jour give his acceptance speech. But even in the midst of his moment in the sun, Brown made sure to thank the other handsome, well-coifed man on the stage, Mitt Romney who, as it happens, would very much like the votes of that national Republican audience in...

    For much of this decade, Charles Johnson was one of the right's leading bloggers. His blog, Little Green Footballs, was famous for its focus on Islamic terrorism, but also for the role it played in "Rathergate" and in exposing various faked photography.... On Monday, Johnson made the split official, with a post headlined, "Why I Parted Ways With The Right." In it, he gave a list of reasons for the break... Johnson concluded the post saying, "The American right wing has gone off the rails, into the bushes, and off the cliff. I won't be going over the cliff with...

    Why is every single thread that I log onto this day after Thanksgiving, have a picture of Mitt Romney, that then trashes him?? Does JimRob and this website condone the Palin trashers, and try to create a Mitt backlash, to trash him? Does this website wish to promote a Republican/Conservative candidate who has no real business experience, like our current loser-in-chief, Zer0? Mitt has problems, as do each and every Pubbie, Conservative, or RAT potential to lead this once great US! Back off on the hits to Romney, (or maybe do you see him as a threat, much like the...

    Any number of pundits claim that we have now passed the worst of the recession. Green shoots of recovery are supposedly popping up all around the country, and the economy is expected to resume growing soon at an annual rate of 3% to 4%. Many of these are the same people who insisted that the economy would continue growing last year, even while it was clear that we were already in the beginning stages of a recession. A false recovery is under way. I am reminded of the outlook in 1930, when the experts were certain that the worst of...

    Attorneys for the controversial San Francisco host of the syndicated "Savage Nation" radio show, say the ban is of a blatant human rights violation and formally asked Clinton on Thursday to demand that British Home Secretary Jacqui Smith "rescind the arbitrary and capricious decision" last week to "name and shame" 16 individuals, including Savage, who have been barred from entry into the country.
  • Rush Limbaugh is little more than a streetwalker (A 'conservative' goes after Rush)

    When I wrote about Rush Limbaugh last week, I got hundreds of responses from so-called "dittoheads." They assured me that they take him seriously when he asserts his status as the spokesman for American conservatives. This is ridiculous. I know conservatism. I was writing groundbreaking conservative commentary back when Limbaugh was spinning vinyl records. Limbaugh is no conservative. So then what is he? Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele recently termed him "an entertainer." For that, Steele is said to be in danger of losing his job. But that term seems a bit too polite when you consider what Limbaugh's...

    John McCain suggested Sunday that Barack Obamas record-breaking fund raising was a gateway to corruption. During an appearance on Fox News Sunday, the Republican nominee expressed concern over the amount of money his Democratic opponent was raising and spending. Obama brought in a jaw-dropping $150 million in September, eclipsing his past record of $66 million. In talking about the news, McCain repeatedly referred to the Watergate scandal that resulted in the impeachment of former President Richard Nixon. McCain pointed to that incident, which included Republicans breaking into the Democratic National Committee offices, as an example of the kind of...
