    [I begin] with the story of a series of Socialist scholars conferences that Barack Obama attended when he lived in New York City between the years 1983 and 1985. And when I finally reconstructed what had gone on at these Socialist conferences that Barack Obama attended, I truly was amazed because what I saw was a kind of map of Barack Obama’s entire subsequent political career. It was at this Socialist conferences in New York in the mid-’80s that Barack Obama encountered the groups, the strategies, and the mentors who would guide him throughout his entire political career. [T]hese Socialist...

    A lobbyist friend who visited Capitol Hill recently came away horrified. “I now am ready to believe that the partisanship is so unhinged that it’s a threat to the Republic,” she writes in an email. This Washington hysteria comes at a time of full employment, booming stocks, relative peace and technological marvels like an electronic robot named Alexa who fetches and plays for you songs of your choice. What’s the fuss about? We all know the answer: Donald Trump. The Washington body politic has been invaded by an alien presence and, true to the laws of nature, that body is...

    Are we supposed to bow down to a ruling class of controlling liberals, greedy politicians, MainFake Media, foreign soldiers, and domineering hordes of the “new brownshirts?” Private armies of the Left? From, NoMoreFakeNews.com: ‘Understand that these media giants not only believe they own the news, they also believe they create reality itself for the masses. They carve into the rock and unveil the sculpture. They script and direct the movie and screen it. They paint the ceiling fresco and display it. They write the novel and sell it. They produce the stage play and review it.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Mr. Snerdley pointed something out to me today. I would not have seen this in the normal act of show prep on my own. Washington Post. It might even be website only, I don't even know if this ran in the newspaper. It's the "Inspired Life" section of the Post. "What Is This Election Missing? Empathy for Trump Voters." I said, "Whoa, what's this? 'Empathy for Trump Voters'? You know what empathy is. It's not sympathy. It means we need a little bit more understanding of who these Trump people are. So the story is about a...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: There are two long-form pieces that I want to call your attention to today. Victor Davis Hanson back with a brilliant piece about the Clintons and who they are and what motives 'em. It's at National Review Online, and I just love it because it essentially, in his own words, makes points that I have been trying to make about the Clintons since I first became aware of them in 1990. There's another piece, and this also is a piece right after my heart. It's by somebody named Thomas Frank. Now, there are two Thomas Franks, and...

    over the past half century, the Reagan years notwithstanding, our ruling class’s changing preferences and habits have transformed public and private life in America. As John Marini shows in his essay, “Donald Trump and the American Crisis,” this has resulted in citizens morphing into either this class’s “stakeholders” or its subjects. And, as Publius Decius Mus argues, “America and the West” now are so firmly “on a trajectory toward something very bad” that it is no longer reasonable to hope that “all human outcomes are still possible,” by which he means restoration of the public and private practices that made...

    An effort to halt construction of an oil pipeline by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe was rejected by a U.S. District Judge Friday. From the NY Times: The ruling by Judge James E. Boasberg in Washington rejected efforts by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to halt construction of the Dakota Access pipeline. A lawyer for the tribe says the ruling will be appealed. Although the $3.7 billion pipeline would not cross the reservation on its 1,170-mile path across four states, it would skirt the reservation’s northern boundary and run through what tribal officials say are ancestral lands. They say the...

    Dear Mr Trump God bless you for the sacrifices you are making to make America great again. As we continue to see, the Clintons, Obama, media, and the Left in their secret counsels devise trickery and deception to stop you. They will fail. The latest device is this Khizr Khan, a Muslin immigration lawyer who apparently adheres to Sharia law which is unconstitutional and, therefore, invalid law and illegal in the U.S. And as expected, your response and defense against Khan’s vicious attacks on you are being criticized in the media, of course taking the focus off the criminality of...

    Ted Cruz will deal Donald Trump an emphatic defeat in Wisconsin next week. That’s according to The POLITICO Caucus – a panel of activists, strategists and operatives in 10 key battleground states. Nearly nine-in-10 Republicans in those states chose Cruz as the likely winner of next Tuesday’s Wisconsin presidential primary. Among Democrats, Caucus members by a nearly two-to-one margin predicted Bernie Sanders would defeat Hillary Clinton. In the Republican race, insiders said Cruz has surged ahead of Trump in Wisconsin thanks to GOP Gov. Scott Walker’s endorsement and an electorate that isn’t as favorable to Trump as those in other...

    A group of conservative activists huddled behind closed doors Thursday at a Washington hotel to plot strategy to stop Republican front-runner Donald Trump , including calling for a unity ticket to oppose him and a floor fight at the GOP convention to deny him the nomination. The meeting was led by conservative talk radio host Erick Erickson, a longtime outspoken critic of Mr. Trump . “We believe that the issue of Donald Trump is greater than an issue of party. It is an issue of morals and character that all Americans, not just those of us in the conservative movement,...

    REASON ^ | 3 Feb 16 | Damon Root
    Trump has trashed free speech, religious liberty, property rights, and limits on executive power. Here's a question for you to puzzle over. Can you name the single most unconstitutional thing Donald Trump has proposed or endorsed so far in the 2016 presidential race? Not an easy question to answer, is it? Do you start with Trump's efforts to suppress immigration by gutting the 14th Amendment? Or do you perhaps point to Trump's long war on the Fifth Amendment and its protections for property rights, as exemplified by Trump's embrace of boundless eminent domain powers for the government and Trump's own...

According to the New York Times, senators attending private lunches with the Majority Leader have been advised to take the position that Donald Trump will lose badly in the general election and should prepare themselves for a Hillary Clinton presidency.

    Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney plans to bash Donald Trump in a speech Thursday, according to excerpts of the speech being passed around social media. In quoted remarks released by Bloomberg Politics editor Mark Halperin, Romney calls Trump "a phony, a fraud." "He's playing the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House and all we get is a lousy hat," Romney is expected to say. Romney, who recently has been publicly critical of Trump's campaign, announced Thursday's speech on Wednesday at the Hinckley Institute of Politics at the University of Utah in Salt...
