    I think we have no choice now but to make him Speaker. Apparently, he’s the only man in America who’d accept the job.Good point from Twitter pal “Political Math”: Having Newt back in the House would be a lovely complement to the retro 90s Bush/Clinton election that’s in the offing. “I’m not laughing at it. I’m saying to you — I’m trying to be totally honest with you,” Gingrich told the host. “If you were to say to me 218 have called you up and given you their pledge, obviously no citizen could ever turn down that kind of...

    U.S. Senator Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign on Wednesday announced that it has named a chairman in all 171 counties that comprise the first four early states – 99 Iowa counties, 10 New Hampshire counties, 46 South Carolina counties, and 16 Nevada counties. “The only way we will turn our country around is through a grassroots uprising of the American people, and I’m grateful for the many courageous conservatives in the early states who have stepped forward to lead that grassroots movement,” Cruz said. “I’ve always known we would have a great organization, but having a leader the 171 counties that...

    The smart folk at Grammarly -- an online grammar checker -- examined Facebook posts written by supporters of the 2016 presidential candidates in a savvy bid to garner free press. It helped that the grammar site's findings confirmed the left's most treasured conceit -- that liberals are more learned than conservatives. Specifically, the study found that supporters of GOP candidates made more grammatical errors than supporters of Democrats, who also displayed a richer vocabulary. Oh, joy, I thought, once again Republicans are the knuckle draggers. I'm with the stoopid party. Supporters of Democrat Lincoln Chafee, the former Rhode Island governor,...

    Political hard-liners do better in runoffs than in party primaries. Runoff voters in both parties are the most enthusiastic voters — more likely to show up for every election. Primary elections do a pretty good job of sorting the partisans from the semi-partisans: Most Republicans and most Democrats who vote in general elections do not vote in their own primaries. But the drop in turnout from those anemic primaries to the primary runoffs also is significant, leaving the most ardent voters from the two parties in charge. So it should come as no surprise when political plotters and schemers try...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 7, 2015 | David M. Drucker
    In the movie, "Swing Vote," the presidential election literally comes down to the vote of one American, Kevin Costner's everyman character, Bud Johnson. It's the stuff of pure, indulgent political fantasy. But the crowded and unpredictable Republican 2016 primary does offer the prospect of an extended battle that could become a very personal, one-on-one campaign for individual delegates, GOP insiders say. Party rules bind most delegates to the winners of each state's nominating contest. But should candidates lose support down the line and suspend their campaigns, the delegates they won immediately become free agents who are permitted to of support...

    In 1952, the combatants were Dwight Eisenhower and Sen. Robert Taft of Ohio. In 1964, it was Barry Goldwater and Nelson Rockefeller. Today, they are outgoing House Speaker John Boehner and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. All have been at the center of an endless struggle that has roiled Republicans for decades as conservatives attempt to yank the party to the political right while more moderate or establishment Republicans try their best to nudge their way toward the center. In the vivid glare of an intense presidential race, party conservatives such as Cruz and Rep. Jim Jordan of Urbana are...

    For liberals hoping to see Democrats retake the House will be sadly disappointed next year, as House Republicans look pretty solid going into 2016. In January, Stuart Rothenberg had this to say about the chances Democrats might take back the lower chamber: Â…30 seats is a big number. Since 1950, gains that large have occurred six times during midterm elections, when partisan waves often appear, but only twice in presidential years, in 1964 and 1980. And thatÂ’s an important reason why the GOP starts as the clear favorite to retain control of the House in 2016. According to Roll...

That’s a fool’s game… until it happens. (NOTE: This will...

    WASHINGTON — More than a year before a difficult election cycle when he will be challenged to hold on to his hard-won Republican majority, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky may have already suffered his most significant loss — the pending departure of Speaker John A. Boehner. Over the past six years, the two Republican leaders have developed a bond of the type that has not always existed between House and Senate leaders of the same party, figures who are often pulled in opposite directions. More important, Mr. McConnell and Mr. Boehner agreed that engaging in the kind of brinkmanship that...

    The video below is of Ted Cruz on the Senate floor two days ago. The senator from Texas (and Republican presidential candidate) exposed the way Washington works: the games that are played, by both parties, and the lack of principles among Republicans. As Mark Levin puts it on Twitter: it’s a real “must watch.” You won’t see many senators taking on their own party like this, but Cruz isn’t your average politician. He has made a name for himself because of his willingness to stand alone: “Fiat justitia ruat caelum” (“Let justice be done though the heavens fall”). This speech...

    Washington Post ^ | 09/29/2015 | By Sarah Allen Gershon, Adrian D. Pantoja and J. Benjamin Taylor
    As far back as Ronald Reagan, politicians have been urging Latinos — who historically have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats — to move over to the Republican Party. The idea has been that, putting questions of immigration aside, Latinos as a whole are conservative about hard work, family values, and religious dedication, which Republicans generally consider to be “their” values. But do they stay that way once they are in the U.S.? If the Republicans continue being the party of strict borders, English-only, and deportation, they’re unlikely to get the first generation to become Republican voters. And like other immigrant groups,...

Each question asks you to rank the issue from least important to most important, which is another neat little feature. There’s also the option to answer additional questions in each category. If you’re looking for the most accurate results, I definitely suggest doing so. It only takes about 15 minutes tops. According to my quiz results, Sen. Ted Cruz is...

In football a first down, or a few first downs are good, but a touchdown is great. Contrary to what some people think, it’s going to take more than Speaker John Boehner’s resignation for the Republicans in Congress to show their supporters some results. It doesn’t have to be a series of birdies, home runs, or touchdowns politically speaking. They just have to accomplish something that Main Street...

It was fitting because, over the past five years, Boehner himself has presided over a far less decorous and infinitely more fractious show of ardent faith,...

The Democratic and Republican donor classes donate for their business interests, but the Democratic donor class has a radical edge.

As I wrote in a previous post, Walker had the backstory and legislative record to formulate a narrative to carry a national campaign, or at least that’s what it seemed on paper. Alas, that wasn’t the case. And from what has been reported; this campaign certainly had its fair share of problems, ranging from ignorance on the issues, staffing, fundraising, and, of course, The Donald.

    Editor's Note: This column was coauthored by Bob Morrison. Like too many politicians of his generation, President Obama seems to think that proper enforcement of our nation’s drug laws would be hypocritical. We know from David Maraniss’ highly acclaimed biography, Barack Obama: The Story, that the marijuana-smoking “Choom Gang” was all too much a part of the young Obama’s days at Hawaii’s exclusive Punahou prep school. Last year, the President asserted that smoking marijuana is little different than smoking cigarettes or drinking alcohol. He’s wrong: As FRC has documented, today’s pot is far more potent and thus far more likely...

Indeed, I’ll show why we will lose elections if we are unwilling to shut down the government in order to protect human life and reform immigration policy.

The corner of accepting her wobbly tri-fold premise: 1. Shutdowns cost Republicans elections. 2. Shutdowns are akin to national disasters like Hurricane Katrina. 3. Anytime we shut down the government, Republicans are 100%...

Rubio is Mr. Amnesty.  He authored an amnesty bill for illegals with the "Gang of 8" (which in many ways was twice as bad as the Maoist...

    Members of the Republican establishment are beginning to worry. Their grasp on power is slipping like sand through a child’s fingers as they desperately try to hold on. This primary season was supposed to be smooth sailing, easy going. It would start with a large field of excellent candidates from across the spectrum of the Republican Party engaging in serious policy debates and producing a confident candidate fully prepared to take on Hillary Clinton for the presidency. But as the old joke goes, “If you want to make God laugh, make a plan.” Donald Trump’s candidacy is the publicity stunt...

It is also reasonable to anticipate that the media and Republican establishment think they know how Trump will behave and are...

    Here are the current rules of the political game in America. When Democrats are in office, they move the country to the Left as quickly as possible. When Republicans are in office, the country still moves to the Left, albeit more slowly; so the GOP can claim it’s "gotten something done." Democrats like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have been caught in enough scandals, committed enough gaffes and made enough mistakes to destroy any Republican ten times over; yet they've gotten a pass. Meanwhile, Republicans live in holy terror of having their political careers destroyed by having a quote in...

    The spectacular rise of Donald Trump as leading presidential candidate should at last force Republicans in Washington to face the chronic ineffectiveness of their party: rank and file Republicans are turning to the Donald because he, unlike the party establishment, seems energetic, articulate, and determined to get something done. They have so long despaired of a party leadership that is inarticulate, somnolent, and inept that they are not deterred by the fact that Trump is dangerously unpredictable. The problem is not an insufficiently conservative party, as some conservatives think; a two-party system will always have a broad spectrum of viewpoints...

    In December of 2011, I wrote an article titled The U.S. Constitution and Civil War. A remark by Cokie Roberts -- that we need to ignore parts of the Constitution to save the rest -- inspired my article. To bring America back, we don't need to, nor should we, ignore or otherwise break the Constitution; it is America's foundation. We do need to destroy and rebuild much of the mess that has been wrongly erected atop that foundation.Who should be our next President?Daniel Greenfield, in an article titled This is the America We Live in Now, wrote, We are not this culture. We...

    Republican senators, the heart of the GOP establishment, will support Donald Trump if he wins the nomination for president, even though they’re not thrilled at the prospect. Trump has become a headache for Republican leaders in Washington, who question his electability but won’t criticize him publicly because he’s popular with the base and they fear he may wage a third-party bid. Still, even GOP senators who have been at the wrong end of the Republican frontrunner’s barbs say they’ll back him if he becomes their nominee. “It’s hard to predict because a lot of things happen between now and then...

    I caught up with Rand Paul at Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum convention in St. Louis over the weekend, and he was in a feisty mood. While he was there to introduce his 80-year-old mother before she accepted an award from Eagle Forum, he was primed to discuss this week’s upcoming GOP debate and Donald Trump. “Someone has to bring him down,” he told reporters in the lounge of the St. Louis Marriott. “I’m not going to sit quietly by and let the disaster that is Donald Trump become the nominee. Do you want someone who appears to still be in...
  • Eva Longoria creates political group to push false narrative — Republicans are against latinos

    A political group co-founded by actress Eva Longoria is taking aim at Donald Trump and other Republican presidential candidates for controversial statements about Latino immigrants. The ad by the Latino Victory Project seizes on actual quotes from Republican candidates, such as Trump’s characterization of Mexican immigrants as “rapists” and “criminals,” and urges Latinos to register and vote in the 2016 election. “This is hate,” one actor says of the comments. “If we don’t stand up, who will?” The problem, this video is taken sound clips and pieced them together to provide a false narrative to push her agenda. Republicans have...

    David Brock’s war against the New York Times just went nuclear — and the paper is responding with equal fury. Brock, the former right-wing journalist-turned-pro-Clinton crusader, takes aim at a top New York Times editor in a soon-to-be released book obtained by POLITICO. In the book, titled "Killing the Messenger: The Right-Wing Plot to Derail Hillary Clinton and Hijack Your Government,” Brock accuses senior politics editor and former Washington bureau chief Carolyn Ryan of helping to turn the paper into a “megaphone for conservative propaganda” by unfairly targeting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The founder of liberal watchdog groups...
  • Democrats, Republicans and Mushroom Clouds

    The Democratic Party has been weak-minded on defense for decades, but with the Iran capitulation, they've achieved a new threshold of cowardice and treachery. While it's true that an honorable handful of Democrats have resisted the president's pressure, the overwhelming majority have chosen to go over the cliff with Barack Obama, a president who never met an enemy he didn't wish to conciliate or an ally he didn't seek to betray. Democrats have long tended toward appeasement of aggressors. Throughout the Cold War, they scared themselves (and everyone else) silly conjuring specters of nuclear holocaust. Then-Sen. John Kerry was one...
  • Mulvaney: Boehner Lacks Enough GOP Votes for Re-Election, His Future Depends on Dems Bail Him Out

    Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) , one of the 28 Republicans who publicly supports replacing House Speaker Rep. John Boehner with a Republican alternative, told Breitbart News on Tuesday that Boehner does not have enough support within the Republican conference to win re-election with just Republican votes. Therefore, Mulvaney said, should there be a vote on a privileged resolution on a motion to vacate the chair of the House of Representatives — a fancy term for a vote to remove Boehner from the speakership — the only way Boehner can keep his job is if Democrats vote for him to bail...
