  • He’s With Her: Inside Paul Ryan’s Months-Long Campaign to Elect Hillary Clinton President

    Breitbart ^ | Oct 21 2016 | Julia Hahn
    Donald Trump made headlines this week when he questioned whether Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan wanted him to prevail over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. “Maybe not,” Trump told Good Morning America on Tuesday. “Because maybe he wants to run in four years… or maybe he doesn’t know how to win. I mean, who can really know?” Trump said. The view that Ryan “doesn’t know how to win,” however, neglects the reality that both Ryan and Clinton share a progressive, globalist worldview, which is at odds with Trump’s “America first” approach. Indeed, both Clinton and Ryan have said that they see...
  • Coming next in ObamaCare: Insurance rationing?

    For Minnesotans, coming next is meant literally. In order to keep insurers from fleeing the Mnsure ObamaCare exchange, Commerce Commissioner Mark Rothman and Governor Mark Dayton had to agree to massive rate increases across the board, which have garnered most of the headlines and discussion in this state and around the nation. Another less-discussed concession, though, might have even worse portents for the unaffordable Affordable Care Act. Rothman and Dayton have allowed insurers to cap enrollments in order to limit their losses — an act of rationing that may set precedent for negotiations in other states. David Montgomery reported it...

    It's awful for you, but they're getting what they've been after all along. Many voters don’t remember the failed predecessor of ObamaCare. It was called HillaryCare in the early 1990s. Hillary Clinton was an unelected, non-official put in charge of a commission to design a plan to hijack the U.S. health care system. It failed when the public found out what was in it and pressured the Senate to abandon it, which they did. In 2009, President Obama, then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi shoved ObamaCare down the throats of the American people. They...

    Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. ---Mark 14:30 If Donald Trump said it, then it must be false. That seems to be the philosophy of many liberals, including Politico senior staff writer Michael Grunwald. In this case, Trump correctly described Jonathan Gruber as the architect of Obamacare in a speech today in Des Moines, Iowa. Gruber was once embraced by liberals and was praised by them many times over and over and over again as the "architect of Obamacare." However, ever since November 2014 when video...

    When President Barack Obama ran for re-election, Democrats made no secret of their disdain for Mitt Romney. That was all before Donald Trump. Horrified by the prospect of Trump in the White House, Obama and his party have changed their tune about Romney. As they denounce Trump as “unhinged” and unfit, they’re getting nostalgic about the 2012 Republican nominee they now describe as principled, competent and honorable. It’s a sharp reversal from four years ago. Back then, Democrats spent hundreds of millions of dollars portraying the former Massachusetts governor as a callous, unpatriotic, pet-abusing caricature of the über-rich. …

    On Friday, former Gov. Gary Johnson offered a guarantee. “If Mitt Romney wants to be a part of the administration, that would be a guarantee.” The comments came at Friday’s joint Deseret News-KSL editorial board meeting with Johnson and Bill Weld. I asked Johnson what role, if any, Romney might play in a Johnson-Weld administration. Although the Libertarian nominee seemed to doubt whether Romney would really be interested, he said the former Republican presidential nominee would be free to, in essence, choose his own adventure. “I think [the position] would be for Mitt Romney to decide … and I say...

    Decide For Yourself: Transgender Crime Whenever a woman provides evidence of sexual crimes against women by males who identify as transgender, she can predict the response by transactivists. First, the transactivists will call her a bigot for pointing out the sexual crimes. Next, the transactivists will deny the sexual crimes took place. After that, they’ll deny that the perpetrator is “really transgendered,” and insist he’s a male who “uses” transgender identity to facilitate his crimes. They’ll insist this even when the perpetrators are prominent transactivists who’ve been central to passing laws granting male access to women’s spaces, and even when...

    There’s a race in the Republican Party happening far away from the hot media glare, one that doesn’t involve a candidate named Trump or Twitter fights or violent protests.

It’s the race to succeed Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, who’s expected to step down in January 2017 after a record six years. If Donald Trump or another Republican is elected president this fall, the chairman’s contest will probably be a moot point.

    Mitt Romney's reemergence this election cycle as a harsh critic of Donald Trump has been crippling for his favorability among Republican voters, a new poll shows. Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, is seen as favorable by just 28 percent of Republican primary voters, according to a Public Policy Polling survey released Tuesday. A startling 62 percent of Republican primary voters view him unfavorably, the poll found, and 10 percent said they were not sure. That net favorability of minus-34 percentage points is a dramatic drop from polling conducted prior to 2016. In January 2015, for example, Romney was seen...

    A U.S. federal judge has upheld Puerto Rico's ban on same-sex marriage and ruled that the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling last year that legalised gay marriage does not apply to Puerto Rico since it is an "unincorporated territory" and not a U.S. state. In his decision, U.S. District Court Judge Juan Perez-Gimenez wrote, "One might be tempted to assume that the constant reference made to the 'States' in Obergefell includes the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Yet, it is not the role of this court to venture into such an interpretation." He said, "For the foregoing reasons, the court concludes that...

By contrast, the party's nominee in 2012, Mitt Romney, didn’t reach 49 percent in a poll until mid-April of that year. As YouGov’s William Jordan noted, Romney’s highest polling number prior to that was 40 percent, which he achieved once in mid-January 2012 and once at the end of February. Support for Trump has been over 40 percent in the last four national polls, and flirted with the 40 percent mark in some polls in early December. Single polls...

But 'marriage' exists for the purpose of creating families and providing a stable environment for the raising of children- and deep down, everybody knows it... Government needs to step-away from the moral side of this topic -which is really none of it's concern- and issue ANY and all couples 'civil partnership' arrangements, as is done in -of all places- France.  People can pick whatever church they like...
  • Romney: Without Romneycare there’d be no ObamaCare, and lots of people would be without insurance

    Super. Thanks, Mitt. From the very beginning, Mitt Romney’s campaign was hit with two main lines of attack. The first was that he was a flip-flopper who’d tried to have it both ways on virtually every issue. The second was that he created RomneyCare - the blueprint for ObamaCare - and seemed pretty pleased with himself for doing so. Sane people everywhere asked “Why would you run a candidate like Romney, who can’t mount a successful attack against ObamaCare, when it’s your number one campaign issue.” Of course, we all know how things turned out. Romney continued to call for...

    Failed GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney lamented that the demise of traditional media is empowering Republican “insurgents” and preventing establishment Republicans from compromising more with Democrats. As the Republican establishment is trying convince Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) 58% to run for House Speaker, Romney told David Axelrod on a recent “The Axe Files” podcast that the “extremes within our respective parties are having a louder and louder voice and demanding more attention” and “immediate action” as opposed to more “collaborative action.”
  • The planned takedown of Donald Trump

    The GOPe/Karl Rove strategy to take down Donald Trump has been given the name “Operation Hummingbird.” It places Marco Rubio and Carly Fiorina on either side of the front runner and employs the media tactics of “Isolate-Ridicule-Marginalize” to do away with the formidable front-runner. Pay attention to the results of weekly and daily polls by watching who is doing the polling. Operation Hummingbird was the name of a neo-folk album released in 1999 by an artist who called himself “Death in June.” Remembering how Romney had been beaten up by the time the last Republican Convention rolled around, a decision...

    Editor’s Note: A group of more than 60 legal scholars released a statement last week calling on all federal and state officeholders not to accept the Supreme Court's Obergefell v. Hodges decision--declaring a national right to same-same sex marriage--as binding precedent.One of the signers and authors of the statement was Robert. P. George, the founder of the American Principles Project and McCormack Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton. "We stand with James Madison and Abraham Lincoln in recognizing that the Constitution is not whatever a majority of Supreme Court justices say it is," said George. "We remind all officeholders in the...
  • Why Singles Rights And Same-Sex Marriage Will Abolish All Marriage

    The Federalist ^ | Oct 29, 2014 | Stella Morabito
    I recently argued in The Federalist that same-sex marriage is merely a vehicle to abolish all civil marriage, and with it, all family autonomy. I predicted that “singles’ activists” would try to finish the job by using those same “marriage equality” arguments to claim that all civil discriminates against singles and therefore should be abolished. Lo and behold, a singles’ activist, [] Bella DePaulo, confirmed exactly that []: “Morabito says that what I really want is ‘to abolish marriage without saying so.’ That’s not quite right. I’m happy to say so.” As for me connecting “singles’ rights” with the same-sex...

    I understand the gay issue is important but to have to go through 9 pages of FR to get to current event OTHER than the gay issue is something I have never seen before. Granted; I have not been active the entire 16 years of my membership here but this is something beyond activism. It's almost, no, it is obsession. I don't like that gay marriage is the law of the land right now and that SCOTUS could not see how they have lessened the sanctity of marriage. I get that. But really people! Nine pages! Ya think that might...
  • Why Mitt Romney should save the Republican Party and join the 2016 race

    "Mitt wants to run. He never stopped wanting to run," an anonymous senior adviser of Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential campaign recently told New York magazine. Other members of Romneyworld have denied the former governor is interested in another campaign. But at this stage in the 2016 race, Mitt Romney should start preparing to get back in the arena.Romney should be ready to enter the field to save his party from an awful reckoning between its leadership and its base, a reckoning that has been brought on by Donald Trump's campaign. Trump has proven that the "strongest GOP primary field in...

    Thirty North Carolina magistrates in North Carolina are all refusing to conduct homosexual “marriages.” According to the report: More than 30 magistrates in North Carolina have refused to perform weddings. But thanks to a new state law, they were able to do so legally.Right after the Supreme Court legalized gay marriage in June, the state passed a law allowing officials to opt out of performing all marriages.The law exempts court officials with a “sincerely held religious objection” and is designed for those opposing gay marriage.The law’s original sponsor, Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger, said it’s probably preventing situations like...

    A federal judge ordered a defiant county clerk to jail for contempt Thursday after she insisted that it would violate her conscience to follow court orders to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. Rowan County clerk Kim Davis and her deputy clerks were summoned to appear before U.S. District Judge David Bunning after she repeatedly denied them marriage licenses, cited her religious beliefs and "God's authority." "You can't be separated from something that's in your heart and in your soul," Davis told the judge as she explained how the Supreme Court's ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide conflicts with the vows...
