    For some reason this didn’t make it into her racism speech yesterday in Reno. Ku Klux Klan leader Will Quigg endorses Hillary Clinton for president. This interview took place after a KKK rally in California in March. Reporter: Who do you like for president, sir. Will Quigg: Hillary Clinton. Reporter: Do you think whites are superior to Blacks and Latinos? Will Quigg: Well we are God’s chosen people.

    Is it possible for Fox to run 24/7 on their own anti-Trump methane? Apparently. From Brit Hume almost in "concern tears" to the subtle twist of the knife in Karl Kameron's "reports", Fox is in rare form again today. "America will die, and the republican party will disappear, and the universe will come to an end, but maybe this Trump Train can be stopped."

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)'s communications director, Rick Tyler, joined Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon Friday on Breitbart News Daily. They recapped last night's national debate, discussing how Fox News tried to paint Cruz as pro-amnesty, and also highlighted that Cruz is challenging Trump to a one-on-one final debate Saturday night in Iowa, before Monday's caucuses. Fox News surprised many viewers-and angered many conservatives-by running a campaign-style video going after Cruz on immigration, suggesting that in 2013 both Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) equally supported amnesty for illegal aliens.

    A Democratic city councilman in Dothan, Alabama struck a local TV reporter twice in the face on Tuesday after being asked about allegations that he engaged in voter fraud. According to the Dothan Eagle, WTVY reporter Ken Curtis confronted District 2 commissioner Amos Newsome over the allegations after a city council meeting and asked him if he would consider resigning That’s when Newsome, 80, lashed out, striking Curtis in the face.

    When conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt spoke to Donald Trump earlier this evening, he asked a question about Quds Force General Qasem Soleimani that led to a comical exchange in which the GOP frontrunner thought they were talking about Iraqi Kurds before finally giving up and accusing Hewitt of asking “gotcha” questions. So, as an experiment, Hewitt invited Republican candidate Carly Fiorina to answer the same question — without any preparation — to see if she had a similar amount of trouble.

    Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt found something Donald Trump doesn’t win at on Thursday — knowing his terrorists. “I’m looking for the next commander-in-chief, to know who Hassan Nasrallah is, and Zawahiri, and al-Julani, and al-Baghdadi. Do you know the players without a scorecard, yet, Donald Trump?” Hewitt asked the 2016 Republican candidate, referring to the respective leaders of Hezbollah, al Qaeda, Jabhat al-Nusra, and the Islamic State. “No," Trump said. "You know, I’ll tell you honestly, I think by the time we get to office, they’ll all be changed. They’ll be all gone,” he said. “I knew you were...

    This week I would like to spotlight the approaching political arena. Regardless of your political orientation, all of us are about to hear more and more about the stuff we get and the stuff we should fear—and our vote may be the deciding factor. Fear Mongers We will hear fear mongers warn of dooms day events if we fail to elect certain candidates, and we will hear of a cornucopia of freebies and other gifts that we might receive if we but vote the right way. Unfortunately, politics today is often about the best liar, and that usually turns out...

    You know, the Ten Commandments, it says you can’t commit adultery; it says you need to honor your father and mother. If someone didn’t honor their parents or commit adultery, would you serve them?” This question was posed by CNN reporter Gary Tuchman to Georgia florist Melissa Jeffcoat, who had previously said she’d refuse to service a homosexual commitment ceremony. When she answered affirmatively and was pressed on why (supposedly) she’d serve adulterers and those dishonoring their parents but not homosexuals, she replied, “It’s just a different kind of sin to me. I just don’t believe in it.” Tuchman surely...

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign is using mainstream media “gotcha” questions regarding Barack Obama to start an email fundraising campaign. As The Hill reports, Walker “has drawn scrutiny for refusing to say whether he agrees with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s comments questioning whether President Obama loves America.” Giuliani’s remarks came at an event attended by Walker.

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a prospective Republican presidential contender, said Saturday he does not know whether President Obama is a Christian. “I don’t know,” Walker said in an interview at the JW Marriott hotel in Washington, where he was attending the winter meeting of the National Governors Association. Told that Obama has frequently spoken publicly about his Christian faith, Walker maintained that he was not aware of the president’s religion. “I’ve actually never talked about it or I haven’t read about that,” Walker said, his voice calm and firm. “I’ve never asked him that,” he added. “You’ve asked me to...

    Weekly Standard ^ | 1/13/14 | JEFFREY H. ANDERSON
    Robert Laszewski—a prominent consultant to health insurance companies—recently wrote in a remarkably candid blog post that, while Obamacare is almost certain to cause insurance costs to skyrocket even higher than it already has, “insurers won’t be losing a lot of sleep over it.” How can this be? Because insurance companies won’t bear the cost of their own losses—at least not more than about a quarter of them. The other three-quarters will be borne by American taxpayers. For some reason, President Obama hasn’t talked about this particular feature of his signature legislation. Indeed, it’s bad enough that Obamacare is projected by...

    After reiterating that President Hugo Chávez's health is looking grave, Venezuela’s vice president lashed out at the country’s “enemies” and expelled two U.S. diplomats whom he accused of spying on the country’s military. At a press conference on Monday, Vice President Nicolás Maduro also pointed to the U.S. and other foreign countries of somehow poisoning Chávez with cancer. Following a lengthy introduction of numerous officials in attendance, Maduro said U.S. military attaché David Delmonaco will be expelled from the country for conspiring against the government and the armed forces. Foreign Minister Elias Jaua also announced the expulsion of a second...

    After yet another debate in which mainstream media figures got to ask gotcha questions of Republican presidential candidates — Karen Tumulty dishonestly trying to pin Solyndra on Rick Perry, and Charlie Rose wagging his crooked finger while trying to use Ronald Reagan against…Rick Perry — we’re being asked to ponder a question: Is Rick Perry finished? The question begins with Byron York, hops over to Big Government and Hot Air, and lives on the political breeze. It’s a strange question, and far too early given the calendar and Perry’s own history of waging comebacks. The debates prove nothing at all...

    A month ago, I was “fringe” for spotlighting Rick Perry’s Gardasil problem. As I said then, it’s not just a “single-issue,” one-off problem. It’s about his instincts, judgment, non-apology apology, and ethics. For everyone still catching up, here’s my column from a month ago. Now, Gardasil is the search word of the day. And there’s a new development. After successfully highlighting Perry’s troubling abuse of executive power during last night’s debate, Michele Bachmann risks blowing it with some factually inaccurate assertions. She’s RIGHT on the principles, wrong on some of the details. She needs to stay on message and stick...

    During last night's GOP debate, good old Newt Gingrich got a little pissy with Chris Wallace's "Gotcha" questions. Well, newsflash Mr. Speaker, every candidate up on that stage were victims of "Gotcha" questions. You're nothing special. What was the "Gotcha" question? Newt, why did your entire campaign staff abandon you? After indulging in a rather lengthy "Gotcha" question dodge, he accused Wallace of playing "Mickey Mouse games." And Wallace's response: “If you think questions about your record are Mickey Mouse, I’m sorry, I think those are questions a lot of people want to hear answers to, and you’re responsible for...

    During the day long infomercial for Mitt Romney that is Fox News, I caught several appearances by Chris Wallace conducting damage control after the can of Whoop-ass Newt Gingrich opened upon him in last night’s GOP debate. His political pundit colleagues were helping to prop him up by agreeing that his now infamous question was perfectly legitimate. They are all contending that asking Gingrich what he “has to say to people who say” that his “campaign is a disaster” – was not a “gotcha question”. Wallace has a track record of insulting candidates he apparently dislikes by superficially framing his...

    AMHERST, N.H. — Aaron Fielding quietly stalks his prey — Republicans — with his video camera, patiently waiting for a political moment worthy of YouTube. At 27, he is a full-time “tracker” for American Bridge 21st Century, a new Democratic organization that aims to record every handshake, every utterance by Republican candidates in 2011 and 2012, looking for gotcha moments that could derail political ambitions or provide fodder for television advertisements by liberal groups next year. The organization has hired a dozen professional trackers like Mr. Fielding, outfitted them with the latest high-tech cameras and computers and positioned them in...
