    Republican nominee Donald Trump enjoyed a warmer welcome from the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) in Charlotte, North Carolina than his rival Hillary Clinton received on Monday. The New York Republican told the crowd that spending time with veterans has been the “greatest honor of this campaign.” “Our veterans are the bravest and the finest people on earth,” Trump said, as he pledged to work with the VFW if elected president. “Our most basic commitment to provide health and medical care [to veterans] has been violated completely.” “The other candidate in this race, crooked Hillary Clinton, […] has a much...
  • Obama: Honesty Is ‘Absolutely Necessary’ Trait for a President

    07/24/2016 11:27:45 AM PDT · by PROCON · 78 replies ^ | July 24, 2016 | David Rutz
    President Obama said in an interview with CBS airing Sunday that honesty was “absolutely necessary” for a president in order to build trust with the American people. Obama has endorsed his former secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, to succeed him in the White House. In the wake of her private email scandal and the FBI’s revelation that she was “extremely careless” with classified material, Clinton’s honesty numbers with the public are dismal. The FBI also refuted Clinton’s constant claim that she never sent or received classified material on her server, which she has dismissed as a mere “mistake.” “FDR and...

    What's in a quote? For Joe Biden, his plagiarisation of a speech delivered by Neil Kinnock, then Labour leader, helped put pay to his own campaign to win the Democrats' presidential nomination more than 20 years ago. The speech by Mr Kinnock, as he desperately tried to remodel and rebuild the Labour Party, was widely judged to be a dramatic and powerful piece of political rhetoric - making it particularly tempting

    While interviewing Bernie Sanders on "Meet The Press" on October 11, 2015 Chuck Todd asked the following question: “Are you a capitalist?” Bernie answered “No. I’m a democratic socialist.” To properly understand his answer, it is helpful to go back 104 years to the candidacy of Eugene V. Debs who, in 1912, ran for president on the Socialist Party ticket. In that election, there were four candidates for President: William Howard Taft (Republican), Theodore Roosevelt (Progressive), Woodrow Wilson (Democrat), and Eugene V. Debs (Socialist). On some of the platform planks, there was an overlap between the Socialists and the Progressives....

    Like father, like son: Poppy Bush looked the American people square in the eye and said, "Read my lips: no new taxes." Of course, the former Director of Central Intelligence welshed, because lying is what he did for a living. Now comes his son Jeb, who raised his hand and pledged to support the eventual nominee of the Republican party in the race for president, back when he thought he had a chance. Naturally, the chip off the old block has reneged. In a Facebook post, Bush announced that he could not in good conscience vote for Donald Trump, saying...

He dropped nearly $500 in cash while he was in their store, located at Penn and Memorial. The man dropped the money on the floor in the lobby around 4 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. “The gentleman had come in, purchased a couple of donuts. As he was putting his money away, he dropped some on the floor,” said Jason Hart with Krispy Kreme. At the time, no one noticed anything strange.

Donald Trump Junior, Mr Trump's son, was also unable to tell the Telegraph who his father's Muslim friends were, saying only that they had "completed a lot of business deals" in the Middle East.

    I applauded when Donald Trump jumped into the Republican presidential nominating fray. Here was someone with overwhelming national recognition due to his celebrity status, as well as someone who was politically independent due to his wealth. Someone of that stature could potentially drive a stake through the heart of the Republican establishment and forcefully blunt the folly of political correctness that has inundated American society. During the early stages of his campaign Trump exceeded all expectations in both of these arenas. However,as the novelty has begun to wear thin and his speeches and talking points have become annoyingly repetitive the...

    Backing down is not in Pamela Geller's lexicon. In May 2015, Geller hosted an art exhibit and drawing contest featuring images of the Muslim prophet Muhammad. Her aim was to stand up for free speech by showing that Muslims could not intimidate non-Muslim Americans into following Shariah blasphemy laws, which prohibit any depictions of Muhammad. Two gunmen showed up at the Garland, Texas, event and started shooting, injuring a security officer before being killed by police. Frightened into silence? Not Geller. A month later, she launched a new billboard-ad campaign featuring the winning drawing from the Muhammad art contest. The...

You may be reluctant to tell a live telephone pollster, a new study found. “Social desirability may be a key factor in why Donald Trump performs better in online polls than through live-telephone interviews,” according to a study released Monday by Morning Consult, which studies political trends. The group interviewed 2,397 registered Republicans and Republican-leaning independents in mid-December. People began the survey online, and one-third then answered questions about Trump and other GOP candidates online. One-third answered the questions with a live interview via telephone, and another third answered with an automated phone voice.

    The big winner was Cruz, and the big loser was Bush. See below. Just to get started on the right foot, let's state at the outset that "the moderators" could not be the winners of a national debate. They can certainly be the losers, however, if they impede, if they are biased, or if they are infantile. That describes the CNBC moderators and the first Fox News moderators, Kelly/Wallace/Baier. They were losers. But for moderators to 'win' means we have relegated the issues and the candidates to some kind of back row. Who were the real winners last night? I...

But to hear it from conservatives with actual jobs is a painful reminder of the ease with which the media have convinced Americans to shut off their minds and allow pundits to do the thinking for them. “I’m worried that Ted Cruz is too extreme.”During the night, someone did a job on the word “extreme.” It ain’t what it used to be.

    Americans are now in a historically long period of distrust and dissatisfaction regarding their government and their country. This goes a long way in explaining why political outsiders are dominating the polls in the Republican presidential race. Even quality conservative candidates such as Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz lag far behind Donald Trump and Ben Carson. They are tainted by the mere fact that they are politicians.

    Judging by the recent actions of the Clinton campaign: Americans don’t need access to Hillary Clinton. That’s the underlying message Hillary for America volunteers received when her campaign had a scheduled stop at a black church in Florissant Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. Clinton was in town to speak to one of her core constituencies; the so-called black community (so-called because lumping all 48 million black Americans into one monolithic hive mind is silliness.) As news of Hillary Clinton’s inability to fill a venue reaches a comical level of reoccurrence; her campaign team have taken to restricting entrance to...

    At a time when the majority of Americans do not view Hillary Clinton as honest and trustworthy, nearly all registered voters deem honesty an important characteristic for the next U.S. president to possess. According to a CNN/ORC poll released Monday, 95 percent of registered voters believe it very or extremely important for the presidential candidate elected in 2016 to be honest and trustworthy. The enthusiasm for this characteristic is consistent across demographics, and significant majorities of both Democratic and Republican voters–95 percent and 97 percent, respectively–agree honesty is an important characteristic for the incoming commander-in-chief.

    The blowback from two recent grand jury decisions exonerating white police officers in separate cases wherein their use of force resulted in the deaths of black individuals has taken on a decidedly surreal tone. While to an extent we have grown to expect provocateurs like Rev. Al Sharpton and his ilk squeezing as much face time out of anything even remotely controversial in vein of race, the willingness of uninvolved (and often wholly uninformed) Americans in jumping on the bandwagon in this dark travesty is discouraging, to say the least.

He’s turned his back on allies such as Israel, having proven himself a bigger friend to the likes of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood than to the Jewish state. He’s no friend of Canada’s. Instead of working with his friends, he’s tried in vain to appease such longtime enemies as Iran. His rush to pull out of Iraq without leaving a reserve force behind has led to the disaster we see unfolding there now. Now Obama needs...

    As the truth concerning Barack Obama’s gross distortions about catastrophic Sequestration spending “cuts” gains wider media and public awareness, I am reminded of how far removed we are from the days where common sense existed and rational people were able to engage in civil conversation. Perhaps the single greatest fact that impedes our nation’s ability to engage in civil discourse is the existence of the “elephant in the room” – the one fact that half of Americans simply can not bring themselves to admit, or they rationalize away with the excuse, “everyone does it.” Perhaps the single most vile, disgusting,...

    Regular readers will know that Mitt Romney wasn't necessarily my dream choice as GOP candidate.
