  • Hillary to Be Nominated while under State Department Investigation

    Only a Trump Justice Department can put Hillary behind bars. ‘Lock her up! Lock her up! Lock her up!”Republicans convened in Cleveland this week and rhythmically chanted for the incarceration of Hillary Clinton, the candidate the Democrats will nominate for president next week in Philadelphia. Some pundits found the Republicans’ new slogan harsh and extreme. But who are the real extremists here? In what must be a historical first, Democrats are about to anoint a contender for the White House who faces at least four federal investigations and a serious, private anti-corruption lawsuit. Even after the Watergate break-in, Richard Nixon’s...

    The announcement from Donald Trump's campaign that the Republican frontrunner will "definitely not" partake in Thursday night's Fox News debate has sent shock waves throughout the nation’s political scene. At a press event Tuesday evening, Trump seemed to cite disparate treatment from the network as his reasoning for not participating. "What’s wrong over there, something’s wrong," Trump said of the "games" Roger Ailes and the network are "playing." In asking the question of "what’s wrong over there?" Trump has shined a spotlight on one of Washington's best kept secrets: namely, Fox's role via its founder Rupert Murdoch in pushing an...

  • NBC/WSJ Poll: Carson Surges Into Lead of National GOP Race

    11/02/2015 3:56:03 PM PST · by CaptainK · 343 replies ^ | 11/2/2015 | Mark Murray
    Ben Carson has surged into the lead of the Republican presidential race, getting support from 29 percent of GOP primary voters, according to a brand-new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. That's the highest percentage any GOP candidate has obtained so far in the survey. Carson's 29 percent is followed by Donald Trump at 23 percent, Marco Rubio at 11 percent, Ted Cruz at 10 percent and Jeb Bush at 8 percent. These findings are similar to a New York Times/CBS poll released last week, which also showed Carson in first place in the national GOP contest.

    After GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s rousing and effective convention acceptance speech last night, I found myself snapping my fingers as the GOP convention’s band in Tampa played that old hit, “Living in America.” Suddenly, it dawned on me: Team Romney might be transmitting racial messages. I consulted my copy of the definitive reference on this topic, A Black Man’s Guide to Whitey’s Racial Code, by Jesse Jackson and Kanye West (Sharpton Books, 2010). I flipped past the highly apologetic introduction by Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.). Just as I suspected, page 178 confirmed that “Living in America” was...

    To hear Rupert Murdoch tell it lately, Mitt Romney lacks stomach and heart. He “seems to play everything safe.” And he is not nearly as tough as he needs to be on President Obama. Mr. Murdoch’s thoughts on the Republican presidential candidate’s prospects? “Tough O Chicago pros will be hard to beat unless he drops old friends from the team.” Chances of that? “Doubtful,” he tapped out in a Twitter message from his iPad last weekend. Then, on Thursday, Mr. Murdoch’s flagship newspaper, The Wall Street Journal, published a blistering editorial criticizing Mr. Romney’s campaign, accusing it of being hapless...

    Perhaps the most surprising thing about the American Left’s effort to transform the January 8 Tucson massacre from a tragic attack into an indictment of the American Right is how easily their charges crumbled. Had the so-called “Paper of Record,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and other politicians and pundits let Americans mourn this tragic atrocity over last weekend, enough facts about alleged gunman Jared Lee Loughner might have emerged to dissuade hyperventilating liberals from climbing so far out onto the thin branch that swiftly snapped right under them. “We don’t have proof yet that this was political,” writer Paul...

    Imagine that your two best friends are British and Canadian tobacco addicts. The Brit battles lung cancer. The Canadian endures emphysema and wheezes as he walks around with clanging oxygen canisters. You probably would not think: "Maybe I should pick up smoking." The fact that America is even considering government medicine is equally wacky. The state guides health care for our two closest allies: Great Britain and Canada. Like us, these are prosperous, industrial, Anglophone democracies. Nevertheless, compared to America, they suffer higher death rates for diseases, their patients experience severe pain, and they ration medical services. Look what you're...

    Some people just cannot wait for dog killer Michael Vick to return to professional football. The only thing this inter-species sadist deserves is universal derision. Let’s recap exactly why this former Atlanta Falcons quarterback pleaded guilty to running a dog-fighting ring, earning him 18 months in federal prison and house arrest until July 20. Vick helped kill eight dogs and injure dozens of others. According to his federal court filings, “Vick agrees and stipulates that these dogs all died as a result of the collective efforts of [co-defendants Purnell] Peace, [Quanis] Phillips and himself, Vick.” Other legal papers detail Vick’s...

    With ACORN facing vote-fraud investigations in at least 13 states, it is no surprise that Barack Obama wants to distance himself from this band of scandal-plagued community organizers. However, the degree to which Obama’s campaign has concealed his links to ACORN raises troubling questions about Obama’s candor and forthrightness. The Obama campaign’s Fight The Smears website tries to “stay up to date on right-wing smears.” It now asserts “ACORN never hired Obama as a trainer, organizer, or any type of employee.” As ABC News’ Jake Tapper noticed, this new language updates an earlier claim that proved untrue: “Barack was never...

    There's no avoiding this conclusion: The federal government's breathtaking economic interventionism has turned America into a democratic-socialist state. The fact that these drastic incursions are happening under an allegedly conservative administration leaves this right-winger oscillating between head-spinning disbelief and exhausted disenchantment. The $200 billion federal bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac has given Washington control of some $5 trillion in home-mortgage debt. Roughly half of Americans now live, essentially, in public housing. The nationalization of American Insurance Group puts Uncle Sam in charge of 80 percent of the nation's largest insurance company. Cost: $85 billion. To finance this takeover,...

    TEMECULA, Calif. -- As top Democrats address their national convention in Denver, they will propose "ending" Operation Iraqi Freedom, demand a speedy withdrawal of U.S. forces there, and insist that "Bush lied, and people died." What they will not do is apologize for their nearly universal failure in judgment regarding President Bush's spring 2007 Surge of 20,000 troops into Iraq. Widespread Democratic defeatism and lack of faith in our GIs' ability to win gouged a gap between their forecasts of doom yesterday and Iraq's far sunnier outlook today. With few exceptions, Democrats got this one dead wrong. "I am not...

    NEW YORK — Painfully high vehicle- and jet-fuel prices are propelling popular demands for extracting the estimated 18 billion barrels of petroleum beneath America's coastal waters. After rescinding previous executive-branch objections, President Bush said July 14, "The only thing standing between the American people and these vast oil resources is action from the U.S. Congress." Capitol Hill Democrats claim offshore drilling poses unacceptable ecological risks. This is yet another overblown worry. Democrats and other environmental naysayers cite the 80,000 barrels that spilled six miles off of Santa Barbara, inundating beaches and aquatic life. This hydrocarbon Hindenburg haunts the memories of...
  • Offshore oil drilling -- cleaner than Mother Nature

    U.S. offshore oil drilling is not perfectly tidy. It's only 99.999 percent clean. Indeed, since 1980 -- as MMS figures indicate -- 101,997 barrels spilled from among the 11.855 billion barrels of American oil extracted offshore. This is a 0.001 percent pollution rate. While offshore drilling is not 100 percent spotless, this record should satisfy all but the terminally fastidious. Ironically, in terms of oil contamination, Mother Nature is 95 times dirtier than Man. Some 620,500 barrels of oil ooze organically from North America's ocean floors each year. Compare this to the average 6,555 barrels that oil companies have spilled...

Consider her campaign’s reported peddling of a photo of Barack Obama in traditional Somali clothing. Emerging soon before Tuesday’s Texas and Ohio primaries, this was more than a zany picture of an exotically dressed pol, like that of Clinton herself touring Vietnam in a sloped hat.

    I have written repeatedly on Willard Mitt Romney’s serial flip-flops. Mitt is the born-again supply-sider who today swears he never raised taxes, even though he increased taxes and fees $983 million as Massachusetts governor. He is 2008’s stalwart defender of traditional values and man-woman marriage who, in 2002, distributed a hot-pink flyer among Boston’s gay community that read: “Mitt and Kerry Wish You A Great Pride Weekend! All citizens deserve equal rights, regardless of their sexual preference.” (Kerry Healey was the GOP nominee for lieutenant governor.)

His anti-abortion declarations are eloquent, as is everything the silver-tongued former Massachusetts governor utters. But once again his rhetoric is at war with his record. "Many, many years ago, I had a dear, close family relative that was very close to me who passed away from an illegal abortion," Romney said while challenging Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy's 1994 re-election. Since then, Romney and his family decided "we can believe as we want, but we will not force our beliefs on others on that matter." Romney...

Responding to their demands that he denounce this interrogation method that simulates drowning, Mr. Mukasey last Tuesday called it "repugnant to me." This left Judiciary Committee Democrats, including Illinois' Dick Durbin, unimpressed. "I can't support his nomination based on the letter he sent yesterday," Mr. Durbin said last Wednesday. "It was a real disappointment." Still it now seems Judge Mukasey's nomination will be approved today by the Judiciary Committee, given the announcement by some key Democratic senators that...

This fine thespian has lost himself so thoroughly in both these roles that no one really knows where the performer ends and the characters begin. Studying Romney’s lines only muddles things.

    Naming Tony Snow press secretary is President Bush's most promising decision since Hurricane Katrina winded him nearly seven months ago. The president should let the veteran commentator craft and disseminate the administration's message in clever and concrete ways, as the capable Snow can do. Snow approaches his position with something outgoing press secretary Scott McClellan lacks: the ability to communicate. McClellan, surely a nice man who loves his country and his family, looks pained and frightened at his briefings. Sniffing blood in the water, reporters chomp into him like sharks devouring a walrus. This leaves McClellan with little to do...

      More evidence we’re in a world war By DEROY MURDOCK   AS the War on Terror continues, it is vital to remind ourselves how truly horrific an enemy civilization confronts. In militant Islam, America and its allies face a breathtakingly evil foe. In recent weeks, this Coalition of the Wicked has reconfirmed its barbarism. In Fallujah, for instance, U.S. soldiers discovered up to 20 blood-stained homes in which innocent hostages were detained and killed, often on videotape. Terror master Abu Musab al-Zarqawi’s headquarters included computer and audio-visual gear to disseminate al-Qaida’s hateful missives and real-life snuff films. Roughly half...

West Point, Pa. — Politicians of yore promised voters "a chicken in every pot." Today's pols pledge "cheap drugs in every medicine chest." This, oddly enough, has become a largely bipartisan prescription. Democrats and Republicans alike propose reimportation of Canadian pharmaceuticals, faster approval of generic drugs, and other policies designed to reduce medication prices. The mounting financial and legal woes at Merck only will fuel calls to "get...

    Hollings Stories Laud Racial Record, Skip Segregationist Work Washington Post and New York Times stories Tuesday, on the decision of South Carolina Senator Ernest Hollings to not seek re-election, lauded the Democrat for how, in contrast to what occurred in other Southern states, as Governor he had presided over “the peaceful” and “orderly desegregation” of South Carolina’s public schools. But in offering such a positive review of Hollings’ record on race, the newspapers skated over his role as a dogged defender of segregation who only gave in when he realized the fight was hopeless, a favor not afforded to Southern...

    A presentation by Deroy Murdock on reparations and race relations, recorded at Canisius College in March, is scheduled for repeat on C-Span at 12:15 AMEDT. Murdock is super in arguing against reparations, raising such questions as how much of a share of any settlement should someone like Tiger Woods, a wealthy quarter-black, receive and what would happen to all the existing programs which many blacks rely on for assistance should reparations be granted. You may need to keep the barf bag handy for some of the Q/A session, however; some in the audience are simply outrageous, like the professor who...

    The first Gulf war was the making of CNN but this time around its arch rival Fox News may win the ratings battle. Fox News has proved more popular than CNN over the first five days of the Iraq war, according to US audience figures. This will confound the expectations of many pundits, who thought CNN, with its superior international newsgathering operation, would overturn the ratings lead Fox News has enjoyed for the past year. Fox News, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, has attracted an average of 4 million viewers each day since the conflict began, rising...
