    A top GOP strategist and pollster for newly re-elected Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is warning that New York Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, "will pay a heavy price" at the polls next year if they don't break with President Obama's policies on Israel and reject any deal he makes with Iran. "Hillary Clinton, [Sen.] Chuck Schumer, [Reps.] Nita Lowey, Steve Israel, Jerry Nadler, Eliot Engel and others are about to get a whole new wave of pressure from Republicans on whether they agree or not with Obama on Israel," New York-based national GOP pollster and strategist John McLaughlin told The Post....

    Hillary Clinton and her campaign cronies saw something frightening yesterday: a fired-up crowd of ten thousand people in Madison, Wisconsin, packing the Veterans Memorial Coliseum to the rafters in support of a candidate best known as Not Hillary. The previously fairly obscure Senator Bernie Sanders is drawing the same kind of enthusiasm that Eugene McCarthy sparked in 1968 when he drive an even more inevitable nominee from the Democratic ticket, incumbent President Lyndon Johnson. It is clear that the progressive base of the Democratic Party is fed up with Hillary Clinton, the cozy-with-Wall-Street party insider who parlayed political connections into...

About 5,500 people were on New York’s Roosevelt Island for Clinton’s carefully orchestrated launch.“Tonight we have made a little bit of history,” Sanders told the crowd with a simple blue Bernie banner backdrop. “Tonight, we have more people at a meeting...

    Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was under intense pressure Tuesday morning to defend her response to the violence that has ripped apart her city following the funeral of Freddie Gray, a young black man who died after being in police custody -- particularly Rawling-Blake's remarks in which she suggested those who "wished to destroy" need their space. With more than a dozen officers injured in clashes with rioters and looters, some -- including Maryland's governor -- are questioning whether Rawlings-Blake should have acted sooner and taken a tougher tone to prevent the demonstrations from getting out of control.

The video, shot by a witness, sees the man being forcibly removed from his store, believed to be located in downtown Baltimore, as dozens of protesters gather outside. One of the rioters knocks him flat out with a sucker-punch, and as the man lies in the street, the mob gathers around him. A male protester wearing a hoodie appears to be stomping on the man's head as others kick him while he is out.

That is particularly the case this season, with a few relatively unknown contenders who lack legislative experience or a long history of campaign contributions that would allow researchers to precisely identify where they stand on the liberal-to-conservative political dimension.However, one characteristic all candidates share is that they have active and popular Twitter accounts. And as I showed in an article published earlier this year in the journal Political Analysis now freely available online as an Editors Choice article ...

    Hillary Clinton's Saturday campaign reboot isn't just her first public rally. Coming a day after President Obama suffered an embarrassing legislative defeat, it is a changing of the guard for the Democratic Party. Make no mistake: while House Republicans also voted overwhelmingly against the president on a key trade bill Friday, it was his fellow Democrats who handed him the most stinging rebuke. Just 40 Democrats out of 188 voted with Obama. Nearly 80 percent of House Democrats, including Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, went against him. A mere two of the 10 Democrats representing Obama's home state of Illinois in...

    So whos waiting in the wings with a humongous bankroll and a proven history of enforcing the type of big-government policies the Democrat faithful love? Click to the next page to find out. when that time finally comes, and the inevitable euthanasia of Hillary Clintons political ambitions finally materializes, it wont be Sanders who benefits. Nor will the other Lilliputian Democrat hopefuls, like Jim Webb, Lincoln Chaffee or Martin OMalley. Its going to be Mike Bloomberg.

    Im a Democrat and I am very concerned about the upcoming presidential election. Our countrys ability to tackle all kinds of inequalityracial, gender, economic and the list goes onlargely hinges on the outcome of the 2016 election, and on whether or not Democrats prevail. I want to make clear that I dont think all Republicans are completely misguided, just many of them, such as union-bashing Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin and polarizing Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and thuggish New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Moderates like Jeb Bush and Marco Rubioalthough too far to the right on many issues for meat...

    Guy Benson: In End of Discussion we have a really fun, very short portion of a chapter that deals with this whole nomenclature on college campuses of trigger warnings and privilege theres a whole list of them. Microaggressions is a big one. And towards the end of this chapter on academia we examine the very interesting case of Elizabeth Warren, who is a white woman. That is the science is in, and she is a white woman. Yet for years, she identified, self-identified wrongly based on family folklore that she was a Native American. And she benefited tremendously...

    So Linc Chafee is in the race. This brings the number of contenders up to four. You have an embittered, kleptocratic and entitled Social Security recipient; you have a sex-obsessed, corrupt septuagenarian Socialist; you have a big city machine Progressive; and you have the Wonder-Bread-and-Velveeta pragmatist. Of this crew, the only one that is a real contender is Martin OMalley. But the real reason this bunch of northeastern Progressive white guys are in the race is to give the illusion that Hillary is not cruising to a coronation. There is undoubtedly some hope, too, that inevitable debates with one or...

    No Democrats are willing to go on the record with their doubts about Hillary Clinton’s electability – not even the gaggle of hopeless, sad-sack nominal opponents for the nomination: Lincoln “metric system” Chafee, Bernie “socialism now!” Sanders, and Martin “the guy who taxed rain” O’Malley.  But a shocking potential rival is waiting in the wings. The realization is dawning on many in the jackass party that they have an unappealing, gaffe-prone, self-entitled, scandal-ridden presumptive nominee on their hands.  I called out the growing  subterranean panic three weeks ago.  Now with CNN polling revealing movement away from Hillary, the conservative...

    So now several of the largest corporations in the state, including Yankee mainstays such as insurance giants Aetna and Travelers, as well as General Electric, are threatening to leave and get out of this abusive relationship. GE's CEO Jeff Immelt told his thousands of Connecticut-based employees that he has put together a team to evaluate a move to another state with "a more pro-business environment." He says the company's state taxes have increased five times since 2011 and the new hike would impose "significant and retroactive tax increases for businesses." Aetna complained that it already pays $65 million a year...
  • Why cant the national Socialist LEFT acknowledge their own bloody history?

    We currently have a Leftist campaigning nationally for president as an acknowledged Socialist and you would think that the nations left would now admit to the obvious that he and they are socialists. But this isnt the case, converse with them even a short time and you will find that they will fight you tooth and nail to deny the obvious. Numerous times Bernie Sanders has outed himself as a socialist on the national stage, and yet leftists all over the nation deny that hes (and they by extension) are Socialists. Go ahead and look up the definition of...
