    Today, the Donald J. Trump campaign announced a new executive board convened to provide advisory support to Mr. Trump on those issues important to Evangelicals and other people of faith in America. The executive board will also lead a much larger Faith and Cultural Advisory Committee to be announced later this month. The leaders on the executive board were not asked to endorse Mr. Trump as a prerequisite for participating on the board. Rather, the formation of the board represents Donald J. Trumps endorsement of those diverse issues important to Evangelicals and other Christians, and his desire to have access...

    Three campaign advisers to 2012 presidential candidate Ron Paul were convicted Thursday in a federal case alleging they conspired to cover up the campaigns payments to a former Iowa state senator who had agreed to endorse their boss. Prosecutors said it is illegal to cause a campaign to file inaccurate spending documents. Theyve pursued charges since July 2015 when a grand jury first indicted the men. Pauls campaign chairman Jesse Benton, campaign manager John Tate and deputy manager Dimitri Kesari argued they broke no laws when they paid a video production company, which passed on $73,000 to former Sen.

    Former congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) recently joined historian David Barton on the show “Foundations of Freedom,” where she spoke out against the progressive income tax system, saying that class warfare rhetoric leads people to “violate the 10th Commandment.” “It’s appealing to the lower interest of man, and it appeals to the American people to violate the 10th Commandment,” Bachmann said. “We are told, ‘Don’t covet’ — in other words don’t be jealous and don’t want what your neighbor has … Instead politicians say, ‘Oh no, no. Your neighbor is rich, because he stole it from you.’” She continued, “That’s not...

Gingrich, a former speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, has support from 25 percent of likely Republican caucus-goers, up from just 7 percent in late October, the poll conducted for The Des Moines Register newspaper found. --- Texas Representative Ron Paul and Romney finished second and third, with support at 18 percent and 16 percent, respectively.

    Ron Paul revels in the fact that he is the presidential candidate of America's small donors, receiving more contributions under $200 than any other Republican seeking the White House in 2012. But, like every other GOP presidential contender, he also has a mega-millionaire "sugar daddy" helping to fund a super PAC that is promoting Paul's candidacy. Yet while Newt Gingrich underwriter Sheldon Adelson and Rick Santorum super-supporter Foster Friess have shared the campaign stage - and the national political spotlight - with their candidates, Paul's benefactor, San Francisco entrepreneur Peter Thiel, has never met the Texas congressman he's aiding.

As incredible as it sounds, theres an argument going on right now between two Republican senators (and, potentially, two Republican candidates for the presidency) over whether the American citizenry should be ready to fight a war against the federal government. The two senators in question are Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham, and they cant seem to agree whether the Second Amendment serves as bulwark against government tyranny. It all started with a fundraising email Cruz sent making the case that The 2nd Amendment to the...

Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) on Tuesday starred in a cameo for "Sharknado 3," the cult-classic fantasy movie series featuring vicious, airborne sharks riding deadly tornadoes from the sea. The 2012 Republican presidential candidate was spotted with a film crew outside the White House, presumably before the disaster hits Washington, D.C. "I believe they are growing in size. Congress has to take this seriously because sharknado is a real phenomenon," Bachmann said in a scene, before excusing herself for a vote on the Hill a couple of miles away. After several takes, which were filmed...

Sarah Palin can do this: she's a deeply committed conservative who has consistently shown, and not just as governor and McCain's running mate, but throughout her personal and political life, both an ability to work with the other side and a willingness to listen to others. Third, Palin is electable whether she takes Scott Walker,...

    Rand Paul does a lot of interviews -- a lot. This, from time to time, has gotten him in trouble. Rarely, though, has it gone as poorly as this. Speaking Monday afternoon with CNBC, Paul: 1) Reiterated his contention that vaccines should be voluntary. 2) Said this: "I have heard of many tragic cases of walking, talking, normal children who wound up with profound mental disorders after vaccines." (Michele Bachmann said something similar during the 2012 presidential campaign. It didn't go over well.) 3) Actually shushed the anchor when he thought she wasn't allowing him to answer her questions.

Statements like that may get some attention, but they are not practical. Don't take our word for it; take Rick Perry's.

    The cromnibus had an unlikely savior Thursday afternoon in the form of a lame-duck lawmaker who used to raise reindeer. Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R-Mich.), who lost his primary earlier this year, was originally among the conservative Republicans who voted against the rule. Without the help of Democrats, Republicans could only lose 17 of their own to pass the rule, which sets up floor debate for the underlying "cromnibus" spending bill. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) intervened once there were 18 Republican defectors and not a single Democrat voting "yes." Many Democrats will vote against the government spending measure because they...

Bachmann has been a rare and nearly lone voice sounding the alarm about the threat of Islam and about government infiltration by the Muslim Brotherhood. And for speaking the sobering truth, she has been mocked, ridiculed, dismissed, and/or ignored. Not just by those on the left, but by those on the right, as well. In honor of Congresswoman Bachmann, Ive selected a few interviews and articles that highlight her courageous voice.

    Hillary Clinton has a sneaky plan to become the next president get a conservative third-party candidate in the race to draw votes away from the Republican nominee. Clinton campaign strategists have concluded Hillary will easily be nominated in 2016, but cannot win the general election in a head-to-head matchup, Richard Turley reports on orbmagazine.com. They are reaching out to Wall Street allies to do black-ops funding for a run by Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum or Herman Cain, a source told Orb. Hillarys approval rating is stuck at 43 percent, not enough to win a two-person race for president.

    A newly-elected Republican Congressman is facing criticism after hiring a same-sex "marriage" supporter as his first Chief of Staff. Congressman-elect Tom Emmer is set to replace Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-MN, when the 114th Congress convenes in January. Just days after winning the race, however, Emmer picked one of his campaign consultants, outgoing state Rep. David FitzSimmons, as his highest-ranking staffer. FitzSimmons is one of four Republicans in the Minnesota House of Representatives to vote for same-sex "marriage" last year. "The state has gone through a lot of controversy over this issue recently, and state Rep. FitzSimmons was a major player...

    Former Republican presidential candidate Pat Buchanan doesnt pop up on cable news much these days, but he did get a platform to discuss his thoughts about yesterdays midterms on Newsmax Wednesday. And when it came to Senator-elect Joni Ernst in Iowa, Buchanan couldnt say enough about her attractiveness. Buchanan began by calling Ernst and enormously attractive figure and a gal with a real sense of humor and a fighting spirit. He added that she has the same kind of attractiveness that Sarah Palin had at the start and that Michele Bachmann gained in the Iowa caucuses, I mean, being a...

    Her name doesn’t appear in the national headlines nearly as often as it used to, but apparently there are those in other parts of the world who remember who Michele Bachmann is. Yet another ISIS video has popped up, and it includes the Minnesota congresswoman making remarks about terrorism. This has set off enough alarms that Bachmann has been assigned her own security team. Rep. Michele Bachmann has been provided with a “limited” protection detail after a picture of her appeared in a video by the Islamic State, a source confirmed to Fox News.However, the source said, the temporary...

    WASHINGTON The danger posed by ISIS to Americans has come to the homeland for Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., and a national publication may be making the ominous threat even worse. Politico has reported federal officials are taking an online threat to the congresswoman so seriously she in now under 24-hour protection by a security detail. However, Politico may be adding fuel to the fire by incorrectly reporting that the congresswoman had called on President Obama to declare war on Islam. Bachmann has been publicly critical of not only ISIL, but also Islam, calling on President Obama to declare war...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Meghan McCain, always outspoken, says shes got one big regret calling Rep. Michele Bachmann a poor mans Sarah Palin. Thats the one if I could take it back I would, because I just think its so linear and so nasty, McCain said in an interview with POLITICO. And Im not a big fan of attacking another woman anymore. The two are now friends, and the congresswoman has even appeared on McCains show, Take Part Live on the Pivot Network. Its so crazy shes not the type of person youd think I connect with, McCain added. Its just with...

    As I wrote last week, any serious strategy against ISIS has to prevent Jihadists with US citizenship from entering this country after getting training abroad. This is a lot harder than it should be since a series of Supreme Court decisions and State Department action have made what used to be a routine procedure into a process that is rarely used. “I therefore formally renounce my oath of office as well as any other implicit or explicit oaths I have made in the past … This includes my oath of U.S. citizenship,” Hasan declared.By his own admission, Nidal Hasan is...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)There are 65 prominent people who might run for president in 2016. The Democratic and Republican fields contrast sharply. Hillary Clinton is the clear front-runner, while there is no front-runner on the Republican side. Twenty-three Democrats have been mentioned as a candidate or are eyeing a bid, according to an analysis by The Hill. The GOP side has 42. Most of the people on this list wont run, and some have adamantly claimed that theyre not interested. But many politicians have changed their minds on seeking the White House. Before mounting his 2008 bid, then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) said he...

    It is highly amusing, after six years of racist attacks on our first black president, to listen to Rep. Mo war on whites Brooks (R-AL), as Jason Easley wrote here yesterday, blame Democrats for Republican racism by claiming that Democrats are using racism to divide the country and drive up minority voting turnout. The logic here being that if we support the rights of minorities to be treated like people, we are anti-white, which differs not at all from the idea that if we support the equal rights of other religions we are anti-Christian. While all minorities are being attacked...
