  • Unpaid Internships Are Worth it: Suck it Up Millennials

    A die-hard Hillary Clinton supporter – a young, female Millennial – recently applied to be a fellow with the campaign and was accepted. However, she was asked to move out of state and work for free. It was hard not to laugh at her over-the-top, entitled millennial reaction published in USA Today: “Finding out that Hillary perpetuates the exploitation known as unpaid internships was like discovering that Santa wasn't real.” Poor baby. Millennials are in a tough position right now. They are hard pressed to find work, with 14% of them unemployed, others barely able to make it on a...

I have found that all the major presidential candidates support amnesty for illegal aliens, except for one. Can you guess which one?

    This has to be a particularly depressing day for the current President of the United States, assuming somebody bothers to bring a summary of the morning headlines out to him on the golf course. The latest set of approval ratings for all the living presidents has been released by CNN and the numbers for the leader of what’s left of the free world are not spectacular. Obama’s approval rating has suffered a similar blow.While it’s dropped since April, going from a near-even 48% approve to 47% disapprove split to a negative-tilting 52% disapprove to 45% approve, the rising disapproval ratings...

    While the outcome of Rand Paul’s attempt to block renewal of PATRIOT Act remains unsettled, his presidential campaign notched a victory of sorts early Tuesday: the Nevada legislature failed to pass a bill changing the state’s 2016 GOP caucus to a primary election. The failure of the measure — backed by the Republican National Committee and the state’s GOP establishment — represents a big win for Paul, who stands to benefit from maintaining the status quo in the first-in-the-West state. For the past two presidential election cycles, grassroots factions aligned with his father, Ron Paul, have flexed outsized muscle in...

It's a response to how unpopular Washington is—particularly the party's congressional wing—and a reflection of the party's strength in holding a majority of governorships. But another reason for the gubernatorial focus is to sidestep the one formidable candidate that gives the establishment heartburn: Sen. Rand Paul.

Cruz infuriated his Senate Republican colleagues this week when he filibustered a clean bill to raise the debt limit.

But in Iowa and New Hampshire, two important presidential primary states, conservative activists are cheering Cruz’s stand and buzzing about a possible presidential run in 2016....

Everyone won, Staples, Bain Capital and women hired for jobs. When this breaks and how Mitt used women to make revenue for Staples and personally put more money in the Cayman's, his campaign is over.

The incumbent president's often meandering answers, rife with halting pauses, as he took questions on domestic policy were in stark contrast to the energetic Romney, who often talked over debate moderator Jim Lehrer to aggressively tout his policies while criticizing Obama.

    When Harry Reid made the wildly incredible claim that Romney hadn’t paid taxes in 10 years, perhaps he failed to mention that the taxes in particular were tobacco and alcohol taxes. We all know what a dirty business politics is especially during campaigns, so the Dems must be tearing their collective hair out trying to find something dastardly with which they can smear their otherwise wholesome opponent. In a recent column, Ann Coulter astutely observed that Mitt Romney is so deficient in the area of compromising scandals that the Dems are reduced to turning mild and ordinary behavior into something...

    A senior House Democrat on Wednesday promised to introduce legislation requiring all presidential candidates to release a decade of their tax returns. The effort by Rep. Sandy Levin (Mich.), the top Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee, is aimed at presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who has come under increasing pressure to release more of his returns. “The stunning lack of transparency from someone in pursuit of the highest office in the country highlights the need to change the law to require fuller disclosure,” Levin said in a statement.
