  • 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 Anti-Trump Network: Fox News Money Flows into Open Borders Group

    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...

    Docker today announced that Ian Murdock, a member of the startup's technical staff and a former Sun and Salesforce employee known for founding the Debian Linux operating system, has passed away. He was 42. A cause of death was not provided in the blog post announcing the news. Docker declined to comment. The San Francisco Police Department did not immediately have information on Murdock's cause of death.

    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.

    National Review Online - The Corner ^ | September 2, 2012 | Deroy Murdock
    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...

    New York Times ^ | 7-5-12 | JEREMY W. PETERS
    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...

Joe Donnelly in the November general election. The debate is sponsored by Indiana Debate Commission, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization.

    As part of his campaign swing through New York this week, Rick Perry is courting key constituencies, including Hispanic and Jewish voters. But on Monday he dined with the one constituent that could prove more influential than any religious or ethnic bloc this election: Rupert Murdoch. The two men shared a meal at The Post House, a steak house just a few blocks from Mr. Murdoch’s Fifth Avenue apartment, said one person with direct knowledge of the meeting. Mr. Murdoch has ties to more than a few actual and potential members of the 2012 Republican presidential field. His Fox News...

    Republicans recently have watched multiple Mitt Romneys at war with each other over abortion, ethanol, global warming and more. Alas, this is nothing new. Various Romneys have battled themselves on issues as old as the Vietnam War. "I longed in many respects to actually be in Vietnam and be representing our country there and in some ways it was frustrating not to feel like I was there as part of the troops that were fighting in Vietnam," Hawkish Romney said in the June 24, 2007, Boston Globe while running as a conservative for 2008's GOP nomination.

    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...

    This fiasco disgusts Americans. A February 1 Rasmussen survey discovered that only 16 percent of likely voters want terrorists to enjoy the same legal rights as U.S. citizens, while 74 percent disagree. Meanwhile, HumanEvents.com (which often posts my columns) has gathered 126,665 signatures on its online petition demanding KSM and company’s ejection from civilian court. “These proceedings will make the O. J. Simpson trial look like a traffic-court hearing,” says Marc Thiessen, author of Courting Disaster: How the CIA Kept America Safe and How Barack Obama Is Inviting the Next Attack , a new bestseller on the Obama administration’s soft-on-terror...

    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...

    SAN FRANCISCO — So-called “global warming” has shrunk from problem to punch line. And now, leftists are laughing, too. It’s hard not to chuckle at the idea of Earth boiling in a carbon cauldron when the news won’t cooperate: — Nearly four inches of snow blanketed the United Arab Emirates’ Jebel Jais region for just the second time in recorded history Jan. 24. The local dialect has no word for snowfall. — Dutchmen on ice skates sped past windmills as canals in Holland froze in mid-January for the first time since 1997. — January saw northern Minnesota’s temperatures plunge to...
  • Obama Squirrels Away His Links to ACORN

    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,...
