    Britains factories are growing at their fastest pace in more than three years, helped by the fall in the value of the pound after the Brexit vote and a recovery in core markets in Europe, a survey showed on Monday. The survey, by manufacturing lobby group EEF and consultancy BDO, added to signs that British factories are enjoying a growth spurt, something that Brexit supporters said would be one of the early benefits of leaving the European Union. [] The post-referendum wobble that defined UK manufacturings performance in the second half of 2016 has been left firmly behind with manufacturers...
  • 'Obama's Favorite General' Stripped Of Security Clearance Amid Leak Investigation

    Retired Marine Gen. James "Hoss" Cartwright has reportedly lost his security clearance as an investigation into his involvement in national security leaks continues, Foreign Policy reports. Cartwright, a retired four-star general who served for 40 years and last served on the Joint Chiefs, has been the subject of an ongoing investigation into an alleged leak of classified information of the "Stuxnet" virus that targeted and temporarily disabled Iran's nuclear facilities in 2010. The general's legal team has called that assertion "preposterous." Gordon Lubold of FP reports that multiple current and former administration sources said Cartwright lost his clearance earlier this...
  • Shocking Benghazi E-Mails Between AP Reporter, Obama Flack; Bozell Denounces on Fox

    MRC president Brent Bozell appeared on The Kelly File with substitute host Martha MacCallum to discuss new e-mails about Benghazi and Fox News coverage of Benghazi. The e-mails are between State Department PR operative Victoria Nuland and friendly Associated Press reporter Matt Lee, discussing the alleged BS on Fox during The OReilly Factor on September 13, 2012, two days after the consulate attacks. Bozell thought the Obama publicist and the AP reporter sounded way too much like each other. (Video, transcript below)

    The southwest border has cracked open over the last year as illegal immigrants into the U.S. spiked some 23 percent, according to the latest Homeland Security numbers released Monday. Nearly 409,000 illegal immigrants were nabbed at the border in fiscal 2016 up from about 331,000 a year earlier and Homeland Security officials say the increased arrests also means an increase in the number that are sneaking by them. Worse yet, the number of illegal immigrants traveling as families, fleeing rough conditions in Central America and enticed by the promise of lax enforcement in the U.S., reached a record...

    In his first public appearance after the Presidential debate at Hofstra University on Monday, Donald Trump was welcomed by tens of thousands of enthusiastic supporters to a Florida airplane hanger. Trumps supporters waited in long lines in the rain and lightning for hours to cheer on Trump. Even after the hanger had filled up, it took more than six minutes to video the whole line.
  • Trump Surge Continues As Latest LA Times Poll Reveals Millennials Aren't Hillary's Only Problem

    Yesterday, we highlighted Hillary's growing "Millennial Problem" pointing out that her support among young voters seemingly collapsed at the same time she took her 9/11 "stumble" off the sidewalk (see: "Hillary's Growing "Millennial Problem" Forces A Reset"). In fact, the collapse is reflected in the Real Clear Politics average of national polls, which shows Clinton's lead has now been reduced to the smallest margin since the DNC. But, according to the latest polling data from the USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times daily tracking poll, Millennial voters aren't the only demographic hurting Clinton. First, the overall daily poll, which tracks 3,000 U.S....

    When Trump was supposedly low in the polls, the establishment was laying low like their ill candidate, Hillary Clinton. Why upset the applecart? Trump has surged. Many of us believed it was much closer before than was being reported, but we also believe Trump has surged. Those who considered him leading would now see him beyond the margin of error out front. Is there proof of this beyond the demographically challenged polls? Yes! There is. The rope-a-dope strategy of the establishment has been set aside and they have renewed their attack with a vengeance. From every corner we're seeing again...

    The Trump Bump has arrived. After wrapping up an acutely fractious primary in which Donald Trump and his opponents lobbed scores of personal, playground insults at one another, the presumptive GOP nominee has quickly unified the vast majority of Republican voters around one goal: defeating Hillary Clinton, his prospective Democratic opponent. Entering the general election trailing by about 7 points, Trump has rapidly erased most of that gap: As of Friday, Clintons advantage was down to roughly 2 points, according to the HuffPost Pollster average. And some polls, like a Fox News survey out on Wednesday, show Trump inching ahead...

    In 2010 Vice President Joe Biden said Iraq was going to be one of the Obama administrations great accomplishments. Im very optimistic about Iraq and its going to be one of the great achievements of this administration. (Video) Biden was able to make these comments after the Bush surge resulted in enormous reduction in violence, an increase in GDP, peak oil production, increased electricity rates, a free press and democratic elections. But that all changed after Barack Obama withdrew US troops from Iraq in 2011. Since then, ISIS took over one-third of the country and initiated a genocide of Iraqi...

    AMMAN, Jordan The first Syrian family to be resettled in the U.S. under a speeded-up "surge operation" for refugees left Jordan on Wednesday for Kansas City, Missouri, to start a new life. Ahmad al-Abboud, who is being resettled with his wife and five children, said he is thankful to Jordan, where he has lived for three years after fleeing Syria's civil war. But the 45-year-old from Homs, Syria, said he was ready to build a better life in the U.S.
  • Is Google hinting at a John Kasich surge in New Hampshire?

    -snip- John Kasich? Tending in New Hampshire? Is that true? And if so, how does this clarify or cloud the crystal ball? The graph in that tweet is confusing. Another way to look at it is over a longer time period. On Google's proprietary scale of search interest, which runs from 0 to 100, this is how the post-Iowa search traffic in New Hampshire has looked for the five Republicans doing best in the polls. (We're mostly only interested in the candidate who will come in second, since we assume Trump will win easily.) In the past day or so,...

Now he’s back town do 16%. Despite the nonstop glowing reports on Marco Rubio by the FOX News establishment hacks, Rubio is sinking.Maybe it’s the Phyllis Schlafly effect?

    In a book just released, The Story: A Reporter's Journey, Judith Miller, a key witness in the Libby prosecution, states that Patrick Fitzgerald had offered repeatedly to drop all charges against Lewis Libby if he would "deliver" Vice President Cheney to him. In addition, she charges that Fitzgerald manipulated her into incorrectly testifying about a critical conversation she had with Libby and withheld exculpatory evidence from both her and the defense in order to induce her mistaken testimony testimony the prosecution knew was made because she was acting under a false belief....[must read snip]....Rizzo, of course, is focused only...

    A new Fox News poll of Iowa shows Donald Trump surging to a strong 11-point lead in the caucuses taking place next week. With just one week until the first votes of the 2016 primary are cast, Trump leads second-place Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% 34-23 percent. The last two Fox News polls of Iowa, conducted in early January and early December, has Ted Cruz with a slim lead over the GOP frontrunner. In the last two weeks, according to the poll, Trump has gained 11 points and Cruz has lost 4 points. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 79% remains...

    Ted Cruz is strongly contesting Donald J. Trump nationally, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll that shows the Texas senator essentially deadlocked with real estate mogul and front-runner in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. According to the survey of registered Republican voters, 28 percent support Mr. Trump, while 24 percent back Mr. Cruz. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points. Trailing Mr. Trump and Mr. Cruz are Senator Marco Rubio and Ben Carson at 12 percent and 10 percent. The rest of the pack is languishing in the single digits....

    The Ted Cruz surge has officially arrived. Predictably, the same political class that previously didn’t give him any shot to win the nomination is now saying he’s “peaking too soon” or the “flavor of the month.” Here are five reasons why they’re wrong (as they almost always are). 1. Contrary to conventional wisdom, Iowa does not “break late.” Accounting for the upcoming holidays when most people tune out politics, there are about 40 days until Iowans vote in their first-in-the-nation caucuses. Cruz is now the leader in the Real Clear Politics polling average in Iowa. By that point in the...

    The Texas senator's campaign is beginning to see returns after months of methodically courting evangelical leaders.Ted Cruz increasingly looks like the man to beat in Iowa. He's rising in the polls, building on an already extensive field organization and locking down critical conservative endorsements.Among the biggest yet came Thursday, when Bob Vander Plaats, the head of the conservative group Family Leader, came out for Cruz, citing what he sees as electability in Iowa and nationally. "This is a guy that's been very consistent in principles, in communications, and his campaign has shown ability to slowly gain ground and build momentum,...

    Ted Cruz is shooting up in the polls. In two recent national polls he has surged into a virtual three way tie for second place with Ben Carson and Marco Rubio with 16% support. It was just a month and a half ago that Cruz was in the low single digits. And in Iowa one new poll shows him in second place, and another shows him actually beating Trump, 24% to 19%! Two things have happened here. First, Ben Carson supporters have been deserting him in droves, due to concerns about his knowledge of foreign policy and his soft-spoken...
