    "I'll vote for Hillary before Trump" faux conservatives are every bit as snobbish as anyone on the left I see the children of the global business elite marry each other and settle in London or New York or Mumbai. They send their children to the same schools and are alert to all class markers. And those elites, of Mumbai and Manhattan, do not often identify with, or see a connection to or an obligation toward, the rough, struggling people who live at the bottom in their countries. In fact, they fear them…. —Peggy Noonan “How Global Elites Forsake Their Countrymen”...

    I know there are some of you who are willing to do what it takes to win but you want to make sure you do so with character and integrity. There's a line you don't want to cross. You are fine going up to that line and doing whatever you can that is within bounds but you don't want to cross that line and I am totally with you on that. I am going to walk you through this faux outrage story regarding Ben Carson and Ted Cruz. I'm going to walk you through a timeline but before I do,...
  • The Anti-Trump Network: Fox News Money Flows into Open Borders Group

    The announcement from Donald Trump's campaign that the Republican frontrunner will "definitely not" partake in Thursday night's Fox News debate has sent shock waves throughout the nation’s political scene. At a press event Tuesday evening, Trump seemed to cite disparate treatment from the network as his reasoning for not participating. "What’s wrong over there, something’s wrong," Trump said of the "games" Roger Ailes and the network are "playing." In asking the question of "what’s wrong over there?" Trump has shined a spotlight on one of Washington's best kept secrets: namely, Fox's role via its founder Rupert Murdoch in pushing an...

    The tenor of our times requires this disclaimer: I think Ben Carson is a nice man who got attacked with phony charges regarding whether or not he was offered a chance to go to West Point. Oh, and I think he is brilliant. Now that Carson-the RNC’s current favor of the month-has bombed once again in the latest Republican candidates’ debate the man they are hoping will derail Donald Trump needs lots of help. In five available public polls Carson registered an anemic 5.5% of those who voted. In a survey released Wednesday morning on the question of who...

    If United States Senator Al Franken -- it hurts to say that -- ever had a redeeming moment, it was in the role of Stuart Smalley, a character he created for "Saturday Night Live." In the most memorable of Smalley's "Daily Affirmations," the lisping, wildly insecure psycho-babbler hosts Michael Jordan. After explaining to his audience that Jordan is "a basketball player for a professional basketball team," Smalley says to him, "You should be very proud of yourself." "Well, thank you, Stuart," says Jordan, "I am." Stunned by Jordan's self-assurance, Smalley blunders on: "I can imagine that the night before a...

    There is no area in which Republicans have further strayed from our traditions than in foreign affairs. Generations of conservatives followed the great advice of our Founding Fathers and pursued a restrained foreign policy that rebuffed entangling alliances and advised America, in the words of John Quincy Adams, not to "go abroad looking for dragons to slay." Sen. Robert Taft, the stalwart of the Old Right, urged America to stay out of NATO. Dwight Eisenhower was elected on a platform promising to get us out of the conflict in Korea. Richard Nixon promised to end the war in Vietnam. Republicans...

    Almost two-thirds of California residents believe President George W. Bush is untruthful and only 23 percent approve of his job performance, according to a new poll released today from San Jose State University. In contrast to the president, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's approval rating is at a near-record high of 62 percent, according to the poll, conducted by the Survey and Policy Research Institute at SJSU. Schwarzenegger is winning approval from liberal and moderate Californians while still maintaining a 64 percent approval rating among conservatives, according to the survey results. While California's presidential primary is 10 months away, the poll results...

    History was made this week! For the first time in four election cycles, Democrats are not attacking the Diebold Corp. the day after the election, accusing it of rigging its voting machines. I guess Diebold has finally been vindicated. So the left won the House and also Nicaragua. They've had a good week. At least they don't have their finger on the atom bomb yet. Democrats support surrender in Iraq, higher taxes and the impeachment of President Bush. They just won an election by pretending to be against all three. Jon Tester, Bob Casey Jr., Heath Shuler, possibly Jim Webb...

    PTC Praises Senate for Passing Indecency Bill Parents Television Council Press Release May 19, 2006 “Legislation Will Protect Families from Barrage of Raunch on Public Airwaves” LOS ANGELES (May 19, 2006) – The Parents Television Council™ praised the U.S. Senate for passing legislation that would increase broadcast indecency fines from $32,000 to $325,000 – a ten-fold increase. “This is a major victory for families. We applaud Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) and Senator Sam Brownback (R-Kansas) for pushing through legislation that would help to protect families from the barrage of raunch that has flooded the public airwaves,” said L....

    Conservatives, the backbone of Bush's political base, are increasingly uneasy about the Iraq conflict and the steady drumbeat of violence in postwar Iraq, Halper and some of his fellow Republicans say. The conservatives' anxiety was fueled by the Abu Ghraib prisoner-abuse scandal and has not abated with the transfer of political power to the interim Iraqi government. Some Republicans fear angry conservatives will stay home in November, undercutting Bush's re-election bid. "I don't think there's any question that there is growing restiveness in the Republican base about this war," said Halper, the co-author of a new book, "America Alone: The...

    Jan. 19 issue - Each morning, as republicans—bright-eyed after sleep made especially refreshing by dreams of defeating Howard Dean—shave or apply makeup, they should look into their mirrors and say to the images of complacency there: "Read my lips—Michael Dukakis got 45.6 percent of the vote."

    President Bush's proposal to give temporary legal status to millions of undocumented immigrants is running into stiff resistance from both left and right on Capitol Hill and stands little chance of enactment this year, according to supporters and opponents. While this assessment is based on early responses, with the lobbying effort barely begun, some lawmakers say the measure's only chance of passage this year would require an all-out push by the president, and even that might not be enough.
