    Illinois Democratic Senate candidate Rep. Tammy Duckworth said on Monday that politicians are contributing to the rise of Islamic terrorists in the United States by calling for stricter immigration laws. Duckworth singled out her Republican opponent, Sen. Mark Kirk, and presidential candidate Donald Trump, as two politicians who are allegedly “play[ing] right into ISIS’s hands” and aiding the radicalization of Muslims in the United States during an interview with the Chicago Tribune editorial board. Duckworth made the comments while discussing two Iraqi refugees in Texas and California who were recently arrested on terror related charges. “In the case of those...

    News articles concerning the most influential political donors in America typically list the same names: The Koch brothers, George Soros, Sheldon Adelson and, lately, Tom Steyer. But as we reach the end of 2015, none of these billionaires has spent big in the 2016 contest, at least not at an individual candidate level. In their absence, a number of lesser known donors are shaping up to be major players in 2016. Here are five to watch: 1. The DeVos Family We're cheating by including a whole family in our list, but there is no way of separating out this high-spending...

    After the ridiculously close squeaker in the Iowa caucuses, the state's Democratic Party said it couldn't release the raw vote totals for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. That simply isn't how they do business, party officials insisted. Even after they audited the results this week, Iowa Democratic officials would say only that Clinton won 49.84 percent of the vote and Sanders 49.59 percent, reducing her margin slightly to a quarter of a point. Sanders has called for the raw vote totals to be released. The state party says that's not the way it conducts the caucuses. And the press has...

    Few people will talk about this, and fewer will even want to acknowledge it, but what Donald Trump did before the debate even began shows the measure of a real man’s worth. At the beginning of the ABC debate, each of the candidates were being introduced in a specific order. The first name called to the stage was Chris Christie. The applause was loud and lingered through the time when Martha Raddatz called the second candidate Ben Carson. Dr. Carson did not hear his name called (easy to understand why when you listen to the video) and stood in the...

The visual featured thumbnail photos of prominent Jewish Americans, including former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Senator Chuck Schumer, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz and several others, with each photo emblazoned with the Israeli flag. The post was accompanied by a written message from Nugent:...

Governor Chris Christie's office released a statement during the day outlining that Assembly Bill 3371 had been signed into law following its passage in both state houses in June.

"Well, I think you need it, because I think PACs are a horrible thing," Trump said on CNN's "State of the Union" when asked if he would pursue campaign finance reform. The billionaire businessman, who said he is self-financing his campaign, said the wall separating super-PACs and candidates running for public office is illusory. "First of all, everyone's dealing with their PAC. You know, it's supposed to be like this...

Arrests by agents at ports of entry in Upstate New York dropped by 2.1 percent In the 2015 fiscal year over the preceding year, while the number of passengers crossing into the United States there fell by 9 percent. That decrease was nothing compared to the steep decline in arrests at the border with Mexico. During the 2015 fiscal year, total arrests by customs and...

Bloomberg would be the richest candidate in American political history with a fortune of $36 billion, dwarfing the resources of Republican Donald Trump and enabling him to self-fund a campaign many times over.

That was before New Jersey Governor Chris Christie banged the Florida Senator up pretty good in Saturday's Republican debate. Brown called Rubio "brilliant," adding that he considered him a good friend, but felt the cage match with Christie really hurt him. Asked about Trump's "ground game," Brown said he was confident the businessman has a good one...

That feels strange after so many months of Limbaugh mainstreaming Trump on the right — as I said in last week’s post, it’s hard to be pro-Trump and pro-Rubio — but it makes sense strategically. If Rubio collapses, conservatives are left with Cruz and … that’s pretty much it, given that the other remaining survivors in the field are...

    Democratic presidential hopeful Senator Bernie Sanders has had a long and apparently often critical relationship with Israel. One mystery that surrounded the 74-year-old senator’s past links to the Jewish state was the identity of the kibbutz on which he spent several months in 1963 as a volunteer. On Thursday, veteran Israeli journalist Yossi Melman announced that the Democratic hopeful had named it in an interview with him more than 25 years ago. In 1990, on the eve of his election to the US House of Representatives as a socialist, Sanders named the kibbutz where he volunteered as Sha’ar HaAmakim, a...

    Perhaps President Obama's involvement is the reason that the FBI has not yet referred charges to the Justice Department in the Hillary Clinton email case. It may be metastasizing so quickly and so dangerously that not only are agents and lawyers within the agency having trouble keeping up with new evidence of wrongdoing, but that the scandal itself now threatens a constitutional crisis. The Department of State's refusal to release 18 emails exchanged between President Obama and Clinton through her unsecured home server at best creates a conflict of interest for Obama (as explained by Andrew McCarthy here) while at...

If the FBI finds sufficient evidence to launch a criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton or one of her top aides for mishandling classified information, Lynch's Justice Department will have to decide whether or not to press ahead. Even if no evidence of wrongdoing is found, Clinton's many critics are unlikely to take the word of an appointee of President Obama's, and will doubt that justice has been served. Already, top Republicans are calling for a special prosecutor to be brought in and evaluate the...

    This has been the most dramatic week in US/Iranian relations since 1979. Last weekend ten US Navy personnel were caught in Iranian waters, as the Pentagon kept changing its story on how they got there. It could have been a disaster for President Obama's big gamble on diplomacy over conflict with Iran. But after several rounds of telephone diplomacy between Secretary of State John Kerry and his Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif, the Iranian leadership - which we are told by the neocons is too irrational to even talk to - did a most rational thing: weighing the costs and...
  • The First Year of President Bernie Sanders: What Life in America Will be Like With Him at the Helm

    On January 20, 2017, President Bernie Sanders was sworn into office. The elderly Vermont politician, who had always made waves, refused to use a bible, instead taking his oath on a smudged copy of his own economic five-year plan. He also unilaterally modified the presidential oath from "preserve, protect and defend" to "enhance, enrich and humanize the Constitution of the United States". The unlikely candidacy of Bernie Sanders had shocked and divided a party and then a nation. President Sanders won the Democratic Party nomination by going far to the left and then, defying conventional wisdom, he moved even further...

    An increasingly geriatric Bill Clinton is upping his attacks on the 74-year-old socialist Bernie Sanders, and is attempting to link anonymous internet "trolls" to Hillary's rival. Holding apparent print outs of internet comments, Clinton escalated his attacks on his wife's opponent in Milford, New Hampshire Sunday night. Bill Clinton Takes Aim at Bernie Sanders "For her, this is not about grand revolution. This is about whether can improve peoples lives," Clinton said with a frail voice. "Vicious trolling," he dubbed apparent comments made towards female Clinton supporters, "that are literally too profane often - not to mention sexist - to...

    THE population of nonreligious Americans -- including atheists, agnostics and those who call themselves "nothing in particular" -- stands at an all-time high this election year. Americans who say religion is not important in their lives and who do not belong to a religious group, according to Pew Research Center, have risen in numbers from an estimated 21 million in 2008 to more than 36 million now. Despite the extraordinary swiftness and magnitude of this shift, our political campaigns are still conducted as if all potential voters were among the faithful. The presumption is that candidates have everything to gain...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), now a Democratic presidential candidate, was slow to take seriously reports in 2014 of the use of fake wait lists by Department of Veterans Affairs employees. As the New York Times reported, Sanders, then chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs, initially indicated that the controversy was being fueled by a partisan effort to undermine the government agency.Sanders defended the VA amid reports, which first came to light in April 2014, that staffers at the Phoenix VA hospital used secret wait lists to conceal the long periods of time that veterans were delayed before...
  • Maher to Steinem: Why Don’t Feminists Make More of a Cause Out of How Women Are Treated..

    .. In the Muslim World? HBO's "Real Time" host Bill Maher wondered why the way women are treated in the Muslim world isn't more of a cause for feminists during an interview with author and activist Gloria Steinem on Friday. Maher asked, "Why aren't the way women are treated in the Muslim world considered more of a feminist cause?" Steinem responded that it is a feminist cause, and that women in the Muslim world consider their treatment a feminist cause. After she added, "All monotheism is a problem." Maher responded, "Yes, but not quite as much." Steinem then said that...

    The feminist writer Gloria Steinem apologized on Sunday for remarks about young women who support Bernie Sanders, not long after Hillary Clinton defended Madeleine Albright over her comment that there is "a special place in hell" for women who do not support Clinton. Steinem posted her apology to Facebook, writing that she "misspoke" on Friday when on a talk show she spoke about women who support Clinton's rival in the Democratic presidential race, Senator Bernie Sanders. Appearing on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, Steinem said women "get more activist as they grow older. And when you're younger, you think:...

    Hillary Clinton’s older feminist supporters have a message for young women who are not backing her candidacy: Shame on you. Women were expected to help power Mrs. Clinton to the Democratic nomination, but as she struggles to overcome a tough challenge from Senator Bernie Sanders, her support among them has been surprisingly shaky. Young women, in particular, have been drawn to the septuagenarian socialist from Vermont, and the dynamic has disappointed feminists who dreamed of Mrs. Clinton’s election as a capstone to the movement. Two feminist icons of Mrs. Clinton’s generation made their frustration known over the weekend, calling on...

    During the 2008 presidential campaign, Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin referred to Madeline Albright's somewhat well-known saying, found on a Starbucks coffee cup, that "There's a special place in Hell for women who don't help other women." At the time, Albright, who served as Secretary of State under Bill Clinton, huffed: "Though I am flattered that Governor Palin has chosen to cite me as a source of wisdom, what I said had nothing to do with politics." She naturally followed that statement with an intense political attack on Palin and GOP presidential nominee John McCain. Now that Democrat Hillary...
