    The popularity of the Eagles' third quarterback competition between Matt Barkley and Tim Tebow could be seen in the stands of MetLife Stadium, where Tebow's No. 15 from his one season with the Jets was spotted during the team's 24-18 win over the Eagles. It could be heard when Tebow entered the game in the second quarter to cheers of his name. Read more at

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Tim Tebow saved his best for last in his competition for the Philadelphia Eagles' No. 3 quarterback job. Tebow ran an effective two-minute drill against the New York Jets, driving the Eagles 85 yards for a touchdown in 1 minute, 26 seconds. It was one of two touchdowns Tebow threw in the 24-18 loss. Tebow completed 11 of 17 passes for 189 yards. Early in the drive, Tebow's ability to avoid sacks came into play. He avoided pressure to complete a pass to running back Raheem Mostert. Tebow then shook loose from nose tackle T.J. Barnes...

    I first became suspicious of South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley when Mitt Romney came to South Carolina and serenaded her with "Happy Birthday to You" while Nikki stood there blushing and preening, like a teenager on a first date. Not knowing very much about her politics, I didn't think anything more of it, until yesterday, when Haley attacked Donald Trump. I attack Donald Trump too, but in a good way, raising the inconsistencies of his record. Haley, on the other hand, attacks him from the left for being too tough on illegal aliens and falsely claiming that Trump is against...

    Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt found something Donald Trump doesn’t win at on Thursday — knowing his terrorists. “I’m looking for the next commander-in-chief, to know who Hassan Nasrallah is, and Zawahiri, and al-Julani, and al-Baghdadi. Do you know the players without a scorecard, yet, Donald Trump?” Hewitt asked the 2016 Republican candidate, referring to the respective leaders of Hezbollah, al Qaeda, Jabhat al-Nusra, and the Islamic State. “No," Trump said. "You know, I’ll tell you honestly, I think by the time we get to office, they’ll all be changed. They’ll be all gone,” he said. “I knew you were...

    The matter, known as a quark-gluon plasma (or QGP), is predicted to exist when temperatures and densities are so extreme that regular matter cannot exist. Instead, a “perfect liquid” exists for a short time before it cools and condenses into the regular stuff that forms the building blocks of matter. Although physicists have announced the detection of this exotic state of matter before, new results from the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory, in Upton, New York, appear to show the tiniest droplets of quark-gluon plasma appear, in a specific pattern,...

    The cable news networks are all breathlessly reporting that after a one-on-one meeting with Reince Priebus, Donald Trump has signed a pledge in which he promises to support the eventual Republican nominee, regardless of who it might be. I am sure that in the corridors of the RNC national headquarters, they are all slapping themselves on the back confident that eventually Trump will fade away and that they have averted a third party disaster. In the first place, I don’t think they have accomplished any such thing. I don’t think it’s a foregone conclusion anymore that Trump will ever fade...

Univision anchor Jorge Ramos thinks this idea is not merely absurd but also a “complete waste of time and money.” “As you can imagine, for the last few days, I’ve been thinking a lot about Donald Trump and his plan to deport more than 11 million undocumented immigrants from the United States,” Ramos said in a segment for his Fusion show America, following his confrontation with the GOP frontrunner a...

    Just minutes after Jeb Bush bashed Donald Trump in his stump speech on Thursday, Bush was questioned by a frustrated voter on what he would do about illegal immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border. In the six-minute exchange that grew tense at times, the former Florida governor was asked why he didn't support the idea of cutting off aid or other funds to Mexico until the country does more to stop illegal crossings into the United States. "They don't do anything about the border. We're being defensive. Why don't we be offensive for once?" Dennis Lamare asked, echoing sentiments that have...

In New York, however, he has positioned himself at a nexus of powerful interests that have grown frustrated during Mr. de Blasio’s tenure.... Where Mr. de Blasio has opposed charter schools, Mr. Jeffries has firmly defended them; in April, he addressed a fund-raising gala for the Success Academy organization, a fast-growing charter network heavily backed by wealthy critics of the mayor.

That's nearly one-third of Republicans in this country supporting Donald Trump. Ben Carson is now in second place with 18%, and that is very...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush tweaked Republican presidential rival Donald Trump on Thursday after the businessman pledged to support the eventual GOP nominee. After Trump posted a tweet touting his pledge not to make a third-party run, Bush replied by including a photo with his own signature under text reading, "Voted Republican since 1972." The barb is part of a continued push from Bush's campaign to point out that Trump has previously been registered as a Democrat and donated to Democrats. “He was a Democrat longer than he was a Republican,” Bush said at a New Hampshire town hall last...

But he should really set the example by speaking English while in the United States.” “El hombre no es conservador,” Bush said in Spanish of Trump in Miami, according to theTampa Bay Times. That means, according to...

    Here’s another demonstration, says David Frum, that Bush is never more passionate than when he’s talking about immigration and biculturalism. The Trump/Bush debate over whether it’s appropriate to address Latino voters in Spanish is like the Christie/Paul argument over the NSA and civil liberties: Each man’s position on the issue speaks directly to what it is his fans like most about him. Trump’s the guy who’s demanding assimilation, Jeb’s more comfortable with multiculturalism, at least as Spanish speakers transition to their new culture. He also says Trump “doesn’t believe in tolerance,” which means … what, exactly? If cracking down...

At an event at Trump Tower in New York, Trump announced that he signed a pledge not to run as a third-party candidate, which he previously warned he would do if the Republican Party did not treat him respectfully. Though Trump devoted much of his time to the pledge, he also dedicated a significant chunk of Thursday’s press conference to bragging about his high poll numbers and slamming his Republican rivals. Trump took particular aim at former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), who in recent weeks has ramped up his criticisms of...

Ben Carson is now tied with Trump in one Iowa poll and is close in others, an especially notable result given that The Donald has jammed a lifetime's worth of free media into the past couple of months. Carson's rise suggests that it's possible to catch the populist wave roiling Republican politics and yet not be an obnoxious braggart who abuses anyone who crosses him and will say or do anything as long as he's getting attention.

    Donald Trump announced Thursday he has signed a GOP pledge not to run as an independent in 2016, after a personal appeal from the Republican Party chairman. "I have signed the pledge," Trump said, holding it up. The decision by the Republican presidential front-runner helps ease concerns among party leadership that an outside Trump bid -- should he not win the nomination -- could threaten the party's chances in the general election by peeling off votes. The party began circulating the pledge to virtually all the Republican campaigns earlier this week. But Trump was the obvious concern. He had been...

    Immigration: When Donald Trump proposed mandatory deportation of illegal aliens, pundits and politicians on both sides of the political aisle were appalled. But on this issue it looks like Trump has the public on his side. The fire from the right was almost as fierce as that from the left. "It's not conservative and it's not realistic and it does not embrace American values," said Jeb Bush. Sen. Lindsey Graham called it "absolute gibberish." Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer called the idea "crackpot" and "morally obscene." But the prize for overheated rhetoric goes to Hillary Clinton, who said Trump wants to...

    Democratic strategist James Carville slammed “tool of the Koch Brothers” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), saying he “just feeds the New York Times stuff, and they put it in the paper. Just like the neocons fed the New York Times a bunch of bunk they put on the front page of the paper, basically helped start a war” on Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes.” Carville said of the Clinton email scandal, “my question is, will this rise to the level of scandal as the white house christmas card list back in the ’90s that had 140 hours...

    Donald Trump is "emasculating" former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush with his attacks and his performance in state and national polling, prominent Republican strategist Steve Schmidt said Monday. "Look, Jeb Bush was a very successful governor, he's a thoughtful man, he was a good, conservative governor. But every day, Donald Trump is emasculating Jeb Bush, and Republican primary voters are not going to default to the establishment candidate who is being weakened by these attacks that go unresponded to." -snip- Breaking down the results of the latest Iowa polling on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Schmidt remarked upon the strong performance of candidates...

    Hillary Clinton confidant Sid Blumenthal had nothing but bad things to say about incoming House Speaker John Boehner on the day Republicans won back the House from Democrats in 2010, according to new emails released by the State Department late Monday. "Boehner is despised by the younger, more conservative members of the House Republican Conference," Blumenthal wrote to Clinton. "They are repelled by his personal behavior." "He is louche, alcoholic, lazy, and without any commitment to any principle," he added. According to dictionary.com, "louche" means "dubious, shady, disreputable." "He is not Gingrich, the natural leader of a 'revolution,' riding the...

    Donald Trump is maintaining a commanding 2-1 lead in the latest poll of GOP caucus goers in Iowa, and his only rival in double digits is another political novice, Dr. Ben Carson. Former frontrunner FL Gov. Jeb Bush has tumbled into eighth place despite his $100-million bankroll. In a Gravis Marketing poll of 507 Iowa Republicans conducted last Friday and Saturday, Trump has 31.7 percent to Carson’s 15.8 and Bush’s 4.1 percent. A Monmouth University poll released yesterday had showed Trump and Carson running neck and neck with 23 percent – much to the excitement of the GOP establishment, including...

    Coach is Right ^ | 8/31/15 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    Written four years ago, this prescient piece by Coach Collins has led the discussion on a relationship which may have cost American lives and provided state secrets to the Muslim Brotherhood. It is re-posted here just as it appeared on June 6th of 2011. By Kevin “Coach” Collins People are motivated to follow their darker instincts by lust for money power or sex. In mid 2007 rumors started to circulate about Huma Abedin a stunningly beautiful staffer working for Hillary Clinton. The wagging tongues of Washington asked logical questions about Huma. “If Hillary is bisexual (as had long been thought...

    Here’s some electoral history that Donald Trump’s supporters should consider before voting in their GOP primaries: Since 1972, no Republican presidential candidate has won a general election with less than 30 percent of the Hispanic vote. Nixon, Reagan, and both Bushes received between 30 and 40 percent in their successful presidential bids. All of the GOP losers from 1976 through 2012 received between 24 and 27 percent of the Hispanic vote. This includes George H. W. Bush, who lost in 1992 after his percentage eroded to 25 percent from the 30 percent he garnered in his successful 1988 campaign. It’s...

  • Jorge Ramos Uses Wall but Wants Open Borders for the Rest of Us

    America got a first-hand look at how Mr. Trump’s deportation plan would be administered when Univision’s Jorge Ramos unwittingly volunteered to demonstrate the process at an Iowa press conference. After refusing to wait his turn in line to ask questions of the Republican presidential candidate, Mr. Trump “deported” Mr. Ramos from the press conference, then proceeded to bring him back in after he agreed to wait his turn – making Trump’s comprehensive immigration reform plan look quite feasible. For those unfamiliar with Jorge Ramos, he is the debonair host of the Hispanic news show Noticiero Univision. He’s an “anchor baby”...

    A few weeks ago, Trump posted his proposed immigration policy and, predictably, drew praise from those who want to strengthen America and self-serving condemnation from those who want to weaken us. The Mexican government itself provides some of the best evidence that Trump is exactly right when he says that Mexico intentionally sends a portion of their population across our borders illegally. In fact, they even publish a how-to guide for Mexicans seeking to illegally enter and remain in the United States. As stated in Trump’s immigration policy (and reported by the New York Times, that bastion of anti-immigrant sentiment),...

    To take down the so-called Islamic State in Syria, the influential former head of the CIA wants to co-opt jihadists from America’s arch foe. Members of al Qaeda’s branch in Syria have a surprising advocate in the corridors of American power: retired Army general and former CIA Director David Petraeus. The former commander of U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan has been quietly urging U.S. officials to consider using so-called moderate members of al Qaeda’s Nusra Front to fight ISIS in Syria, four sources familiar with the conversations, including one person who spoke to Petraeus directly, told The Daily Beast....
