    Cato At Liberty ^ | 2/11/2016 | MICHAEL F. CANNON
    If you give Obama a pass when he is dishonest or breaks the rules, because he seems like a good man, or is at least better than those guys; if you argue he had to change the law himself because Congress is dysfunctional and Republicans are unreasonable; if you lambast Bush for starting a war, but give Hillary a pass for both Iraq and Libya; then you are adopting one set of rules for your tribe and another set of rules for everyone else. That shows a lack of respect for people who disagree with you. They notice. They resent...
  • Donald Trump on 9/11: "You Will Find Out Who Really Knocked Down The World Trade Center"

    Real Clear Politics ^ | 2/18/16 | RCP
    At a Wednesday morning campaign event in Bluffton, SC, Donald Trump takes his relitigation of the Bush administration's record on 9/11 and Iraq to the next level, seeming to imply that we don't currently know who "really" committed the 9/11 attacks. Trump says if he is elected: "you will find out who really knocked down the World Trade Center." "It wasn't the Iraqis," he explained. "You may find it's the Saudis." "They have papers in there that are very secret," he also said, referencing the 28 still-classified pages of the 9/11 commission report. "But you will find out."

    Glenn Beck unloaded on Republican presidential contender Donald trump after Saturday night’s debate, characterizing him as a “narcissistic psychopath” who is in desperate need of a “diagnosis.” “Tonight’s debate is the most uncomfortable, angry, hate-filled 2 hours I have ever experienced,” Beck wrote on Facebook. “Is anyone else shaken by this? I found it seriously and deeply disturbing.”

    Man. Lotta 2010-vintage tea-party heroes are climbing aboard the Trump train these days, huh? First Palin, now this. Presumably Trump’s holding the Joe the Plumber endorsement in reserve for just the right moment.This is a decent get for Trump. Brown's move could give Trump a significant boost, one day after the mogul lost the Iowa caucuses to Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. Although Brown was defeated in his senatorial bid here, he has been popular GOP figure in New England ever since his stunning, come-from-behind victory in Massachusetts's special election to fill the Senate seat in 2010.Brown is also...

  • Vox: Hey, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders Agree On A Lot of Stuff, Huh?

    There's an interesting piece from Vox's John B. Judis pointing out just how similar Donald Trump's positions are with the ones of Bernie Sanders. There's going to be a fair amount of consternation between both Trump and Sanders' supporters, who really don't want to be associated with each other, on this but Vox thinks there's plenty of crossover between the two. The first is, you guessed it, populism but it goes even deeper than that: Sanders is a left-wing populist. He wants to defend the "collapsing middle class" against the "billionaire class" that controls the economy and politics. He is...
  • HOROWITZ: TRUMP REVEALS HIS LIBERAL HEART [Still pushing socialism, government dependence]

    Conservative Review ^ | 1-31-2016 | Daniel Horowitz
    Republicans have always specialized in running candidates that accept the most important premises of liberal governance and make themselves indistinguishable from their Democrat counterparts. They should patent their pale pastels, which blend in so effectively there is no discernable ink contrasting their talking points to Democrat policies. In 2012, Republicans concocted a brilliant electoral plan. In a race fought over healthcare, they managed to nominate the only human being in America who implemented Obamacare before President Obama did. Now that the Democrat front-runner is Hillary Clinton, the original god-mother of single-payer healthcare, Republicans are on the cusp of nominating the...

    CRUZ HITS TRUMP ON HEALTH CARE - AND HE'S KIND OF RIGHT - Locked in a close battle in Iowa, Ted Cruz is turning to health care in an attempt to separate himself from rival Donald Trump. A brutal ad airing in Iowa links "HillaryCare" and "ObamaCare" with "TrumpCare" - and uses Trump's own words against him. "Everybody's got to be covered, this is an un-Republican thing for me to say," the ad quotes Trump saying on 60 Minutes last fall. "[And] the government's gonna pay for it." Cruz pushed this message further on several Sunday shows. "A vote for...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: They tried to get Trump, the Daily Beast, claiming that he raped Ivana, and they were foiled when Ivana came out and endorsed Trump. She talked about how much she loved Trump and they worked together raising their kids and so forth and it didn't happen. Now, Trump's lawyer went out there -- and Cohen, Michael Cohen -- and said that (summarized), "Well, there's no rape in marriage anyway. A spouse can't rape another spouse." So, that guy's been flogged, and Trump has straightened that out. But The Daily Beast, you will hear... The Daily Beast's source...
  • As Olivia Chow flounders, Rob Fords fans show us that the common man still matters [Toronto]

    National Post [Canada] ^ | Aug. 30, 2014 | Rex Murphy
    ... It has been amazing to watch Chow slip to third place. Rob Ford, the great helmsman of punk politics, has now crashed out in front of the woman who (the Toronto Star long assured us) was supposed to waltz away with the race, fresh from her stint as MP in the House of Commons. Ms. Chow has plummeted markedly from her start at 38% to a despairing 23%.... Does the result flow from Mr. Fords largely unacknowledged campaigning genius? Is there another person in Toronto, or all of Canada, who could carry the burdens he does, almost all...

    The story fed to the press would outrage anyoneand, predictably, it outraged everyone. The family provided a picture of Trayvon at age 12 or 13, which the media ran with the ugliest picture of Zimmerman they could find. The meme of a huge armed adult stalking a helpless child was born fully grown, to a Godzilla-like size. It loomed over America unopposed. The investigating officers and the States Attorneys Office knew that the evidence showed something else: Zimmerman attacked by Martin, who towered over him, beat him to the ground, clearly smacked his head into the concrete, and might have...

    The American Thinker ^ | September 25, 2010 | Lloyd Marcus
    Here is the Left's latest attempt to fire up their base to vote in November: Obama Lies Productions in association with Media Sycophants Group and Black Civil Rights Mafia Productions proudly releases "Attack of the Racist White Tea Party People," starring that lovable crazy witch from Delaware, Christine O'Donnell -- in 3D. Keep the kids at home on this one, folks. It gets pretty scary when Christine's head does a 360-degree turn and pukes green slime at the audience. Yes, the Left, so-called champions of women's causes, have launched yet another campaign to destroy another conservative woman, Christine O'Donnell. Their...

    The lapdog media's recent birther bashing week may have temporarily lessened the clamor for Obama's Birth Certificate, but the media doesn't understand the scorn of the American people. We don't aprreciate being treated like idiots. The media also doesn't realize that Obama's attempts to literally seal his entire life literally from the day he was born is what has fueled the all the research, theories and innuendos that have come out. That is what intelligent people are forced to do when seeking answers with incomplete information. I am not certain that Obama's actual birth certificate will prove he was or...

    Power Line Blog ^ | 9/12/05 | John Hinderaker
    Today's example of MSM bias: this Business Week article by Leo Hindery, Jr., titled "Tragedy and Telecom." The article is subtitled, "How the Bush Administration's antiregulation stance contributed to the post-Katrina communications collapse -- and what should be done now." Mr. Hindery's indictment of the Bush administration is the latest effort to blame the President for just about everything associated with Hurricane Katrina. Its reasoning is so fragmentary, however, that Hindery never does explain why "the Bush administration's antiregulation stance" had anything to do with the hurricane or its aftermath. That doesn't stop Hindery from dropping the usual snide comments....
