  • Mexican President Warns Of War If "Gringo" Trump Wins The White House

    Donald Trump certainly knows how to manipulate the media and ruffle some feathers in order to get a reaction, this we know. Trump's plan to build a wall on the Mexican border doesn't need to be rehashed here, but one person who has let Trump's rhetoric on the subject get under his skin is former Mexican president Vicente Fox. Fox has been on an emotional roller coaster ever since Trump started in with his criticisms of Mexico. Initially, Fox took to the airwaves to let everyone know that the wall Trump has said Mexico will pay for, ya, he's not...
  • Obama’s Dirty Little Secret to Winning the 2012 Presidential Election

    ...there’s no basis for the common claim Obama won through a superb, unprecedented, supremely effective get-out-the-vote effort by the Democrats. Even downcast Republicans have hailed the opposition’s turnout operation as magnificent, but they fail to note that it resulted in far fewer voters showing up for President Obama. - The president drew 7.6 million fewer votes than he did in the hope-and-change election of 2008. - Exit polls showed that Obama got a slightly smaller percentage of the black vote than last time and that turnout was sharply down, delivering at least 1.5 million fewer African-American ballots for the Democrats....

    Commentary ^ | 08/14/2015 | Peter Wehner
    In a compelling column, George Will who knows a thing or two about conservatism makes the conservative case against Donald Trump. Mr. Will refers to Trump as an unprecedentedly and incorrigibly vulgar presidential candidate who is coarsening our civic life. He labels Trump a counterfeit Republican and no conservative. And he argues that Trump is an affront to anyone devoted to the legacy of William F. Buckley, Jr., the founder of National Review and a giant in American conservatism. Just as Buckley excommunicated the John Birch Society from the conservative movement in the 1960s, so should conservatives today...

    Jeb Bush says that the prospective confirmation of attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch sounds to me like a victory because getting rid of current Attorney General Eric Holder has gotta be a win. The former governor of Florida said last week that President Barack Obama deserves the opportunity to have the team he wants. He also took shots at Holder then, saying that Republicans should consider that the longer they take to confirm Lynch, the longer he will be in office. I said that they should have a vote, Bush told radio show host Michael Medved in an interview Tuesday....

    My friend Michael Medved announced to listeners today that he is fighting cancer. I have known a bit longer, but because he is my friend and because he lives the healthiest of lifestyles, the news is still a shock. But here's the thing about Michael-he is the only one I know who could get a diagnosis like this and greet it with a smile. When he told me that he had cancer, it was immediately followed with the reminder that he was not a man to be pitied-he was not a victim. He intended to fight cancer and beat it,...

    Radio host Michael Medved revealed on his website today that he was diagnosed with throat cancer last month. He writes, I always knew that it would take something serious to keep me away from the microphone I cherish for an extended period of time. As it turns out, I am facing something serious. Its called cancer." Medved was diagnosed with stage three throat cancer and said that its actually a highly curable form of cancer. And while hed been able to keep his radio show going as he underwent treatment, Medved says hes taking a leave of absence from his...

    Why should religious leaders, of all people, turn their fire on celebrities who use their popularity for public proclamations of the almightys power? In an age when media icons flaunt every sort of indulgence and depravity, prominent members of clergy should find more appropriate targets to scold than athletic achievers like football's Tim Tebow, basketball's Jeremy Lin or baseball's Josh Hamilton, who choose to flaunt their devout Christian commitment. Widespread discomfort toward well-publicized professions of faith highlights a significant rift in outlook not just between believers and skeptics, but between religious people who want to limit theological affirmations to...

    This column originally appeared in THE DAILY BEAST. In looking ahead toward the November election, Republican strategists should take proactive steps to avoid a damaging, dangerous conclusion to the presidential race and to prevent the very real chance that Mitt Romney will win the Electoral College even while losing the popular vote badly to Barack Obama. The problem stems from the lopsided margins President Obama will surely pile up in a few uncontested states with big populations, including California, New York, Illinois and Massachusetts. Mr. Romney, meanwhile, will prevail by comparable margins in only relatively small states: Utah, Idaho, the...

    For more than six months, worried conservative chieftains talked up the need to unite behind a single rightist candidate in order to block the potential victory of the mushy moderate from Massachusetts, Mitt Romney. Now, on the eve of crucial primaries in Michigan and Arizona, and with Super Tuesday looming just one week later, some of those same leaders speak privately of the need to unite behind that same, once-dreaded Romney in order to avert an even more dire disaster: the nomination of Rick Santorum.

    In an obvious effort to get conservatives to warm up to the idea of moderate Mitt Romney as the GOP nominee for president, talk show host Michael Medveddoes a little jujitsu moveagainst election facts.As I have shown elsewhere, in every presidential election since 1972, GOP candidates do better when they are seen in greater contrast with the Democratic nominee. This was never more true than in 2008, and though Medved admits that John McCain was a moderate, he implies that the GOP would have won if they had nominatedsomeone even more moderatethan McCain. This is pure poppycock. Medved confuses...

    Not a single candidate came out ahead in last nights Vegas slugfestRomney looked petty, Perry looked desperate, and Cain was obviously lying to himself about his 9-9-9 plan. After a seemingly endless series of eight prior candidate encounters, one of the GOP presidential contenders finally came up with an ingenious debate strategy that counts as fearless, distinctive and utterly original: attacking Ronald Reagan over the arms-for-hostages deals during Iran-Contra. Near the conclusion of a deeply damaging slugfest that weakened every candidate on stage, Congressman Ron (Dr. Demento) Paul outrageously trashed the Gippers memory in response to pre-debate Herman Cain comments...

    July 13, 2011 why Palin Gets More Hostile (And Admiring) Coverage Than She Deserves By Michael Medved 7/13/2011 Sarah Palin doesnt deserve the ridicule she receives from the mainstream media, nor does she merit the adulation she inspires from her legions of fans. The over-reaction on each side feeds the super-heated response on the other: if she didnt get regularly mocked and mauled by elite commentators, shed never be taken seriously as a presidential possibility by Tea Party conservatives, and if she werent trumpeted as the second coming of Reagan by rightwing true believers she wouldnt absorb the...

    The headline for the big GOP debate should read ROMNEY SOLIDIFIES HIS STATUS AS FRONTRUNNER but the appropriate sub-head may prove even more significant in the long run: Bachmann Makes Energetic and Well-Received Debut. At this point, no one should doubt that the feisty congresswoman from Minnesota will emerge as a major contendercertainly in Iowa (where she was born and raised, and where her evangelical fervor will rally Mike Huckabees currently unfocused cadres) and, if she wins there, then most likely in the rest of the country.

    In phone conversation with my teenaged son this morning I mentioned the sad news that Elizabeth Taylor had died and he innocently asked, "Who's that?" Like most members of his generation, he has no recollection or knowledge of her incomparable glamour (her luminous still photo in a one-piece white bathing suit from "Suddenly Last Summer" will always raise pulse-rates among males of the species), her impressive acting achievements ("Butterfield 8," "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and "Taming of the Shrew" still hold up as dazzling performances) or her sensational scandals (the melandcholy details of...
  • Don't Blame Tax Cuts for Catastrophic Deficits

    03/23/2011 5:43:58 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 7 replies ^ | March 23, 2011 | Michael Medved
    Liberal commentators blame the Bush tax cuts, not runaway spending, for the budget crisis. They insist that slashing rates on income taxes, which means smaller percentages of private income going to government, would guarantee red ink even if Congress finds many billions in spending cuts. The problem with this argument is that its clearly contradicted by recent history. Actually, the second round of Bush tax cuts in 2003 brought increased revenues both in actual dollar terms and as a percentage of the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) -- not falling levels of government support. In 2007, six years after Bush...
