    So says PPP, the same outfit responsible for that poll a few weeks back showing Trump losing head-to-head match-ups against Rubio and Walker in North Carolina. Either NC is an outlier or the mood has changed nationally because Republicans across America now prefer him to either of those candidates — and not narrowly either. He leads Rubio by eight when voters are forced to choose between them and Walker by 14. As for Jeb Bush, gadzooks:Jeb’s got another month to turn things around before the donor class heads for the lifeboats, I think. There is one candidate tested who...

While the findings at the top of the poll are what we've come to expect from the Republican field - Donald Trump and Ben Carson - securing the top spots - what is more surprising is to find beltway-favored candidates Chris Christie and Rand Paul floundering at the bottom with barely any support. The poll also shows the tea party character of the Republican Party, with strong birther views and a dubious grasp of some key...

Guest-hosting on With All Due Respect, Barnicle declared "I would want to live as far away as possible" from the 53% of Iowa Republican voters who favor anti-establishment candidates Trump, Carson, Fiorina and Cruz.

Some conservatives seem determined to bet the farm, and the federal government, on defunding the women’s health services provider. Big mistake.Let’s put aside political questions. Sure, I could tell you that the 2013 shutdown severely damaged the GOP brand; defiant conservatives will respond that Republicans won the 2014 midterms anyway.

    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker came to the aid of Sen. Ted Cruz Friday after reports that Speaker of the House John Boehner called him a "jackass" during a fundraiser. Appearing on "The Hugh Hewitt Show," the Republican presidential hopeful called Boehner's reported Wednesday night statement "just wrong." Boehner made the comments at a Steamboat Springs event for GOP Rep. Scott Tipton, according to the Daily Caller. "I think it's just wrong," Walker said. "Even though I don't know Sen. Cruz as well as I know some of the governors, I've grown to know him and like him and admire him...
  • Vanity-1973 Book Predicted Downfall of West Through Immigration

    The Camp of the Saints (Le Camp des Saints) is a 1973 French apocalyptic novel by Jean Raspail. The novel depicts a hypothetical setting whereby Third World mass immigration to France and the West leads to the destruction of Western civilization. Almost forty years after publication the book returned to the bestseller list in 2011. Granted the countries of orgin might be a little different but it is quite prescient for something written over 40 years ago.

    Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Louie Gohmert have joined those calling for a Margaret Sanger bust to be removed from the Smithsonians National Portrait Gallery. The Sanger bust, on display in a Struggle for Justice exhibit since 2010, has been in the news since controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood flared up again. Sangers views on race and eugenics have been at the heart of the opposition to her appearance as a face of justice in America. Cruz and Texas Rep. Gohmert joined Ministers Taking a Stand for a press conference outside the gallery. Theyve circulated a petition that gained 11,000 signatures...
  • Judge Andrew Napolitanos Bizarre Op-Ed on RFRAs: He argues that RFRAs are unconstitutional

    National Review ^ | 04/06/2015 | Ed Whelan
    In a challenging field of competitors, Fox News Channels Andrew Napolitano has a strong entry for the most laughable legal analysis of the Indiana religious-freedom law. In an April Fools Day op-ed that he evidently means to be taken seriously, Napolitano argues that state Religious Freedom Restoration Act laws are unconstitutional. Napolitanos core claim is that the Supreme Court, in its 1997 ruling in Boerne v. Flores, ruled that the 1993 federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act is unconstitutional. In Boerne the Court ruled that Congress lacked the constitutional power to apply the federal RFRA against the states. Napolitano accurately summarizes...

    Ted Cruz and Donald Trump have united to fight the Iran nuclear agreement. On Thursday, the Texas senator invited the real estate mogul to join him in rallying against the deal on the Capitol grounds, and Trump accepted. The two Republican presidential candidates said they would do something very big over the next two weeks in Washington. Trump made his announcement after a campaign rally in South Carolina, referring to Cruz as a friend of mine and a good guy. The event will be sponsored by Tea Party Patriots, the Center for Security Policy, and the Zionist Organization of America,...

    Real estate mogul Donald Trump is dominating polls and capturing headlines in the Republican presidential race, but rival Jeb Bush is still the favorite of traders in political prediction markets. While Bush has been eclipsed by Trump in opinion polls, the former Florida governor is riding high with online traders who give him a 40 percent chance to capture the party's presidential nomination, according to prediction market aggregatorPredictWise.com. Florida Senator Marco Rubio is a distant second with a 15 percent chance, and Trump has risen to third in recent weeks with 14 percent, according to PredictWise, which aggregates about a...

    Two years ago, Trump met with immigration activists who told them their stories and asked for his support on immigration. "You convinced me" Trump said as the meeting ended. Donald Trump with Antonia Tijerino, Estuardo Rodriguez, and DREAMer activists at his office in 2013. Courtesy Estuardo Rodriguez On an August day two years ago, Donald Trump was in a much different place: He was just a billionaire with the simple goal of connecting his beauty pageant business with the upcoming Hispanic Heritage Awards. So at his New York penthouse office atop Trump Tower, he convened a meeting. Trump ushered in...

  • Donald Trump trounces GOP field, Biden leads general election match-ups (Quinnipiac)

    The Quinnipiac University poll, released Thursday, also shows Donald Trump smashing the GOP presidential competition garnering 28% support from registered Republican voters in the 17-member field. The real estate mogul's closest competitor is retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who tallies 12%. Just 7% said they would vote for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, a record low since November 2013. Those results show just how far both Trump -- now the Republican front-runner -- and Bush -- the old one -- have come. Bush led national polls for much of the first half of 2015, but was quickly dislodged by Trump, after...

    Breitbart ^ | 27 Aug 2015 | Julia Hahn
    Republican legislators have gotten their messaging instructions from their top leaders: Tout unpopular free-trade measures during the August recess, ignore popular curbs on the migration that saps Americans wages. Breitbart News has exclusively obtained an internal August recess messaging instruction set for Republican legislators produced by Sen. John Thune (R-SD) 52% , who orchestrates the GOP Senators PR pitch. This 20-page messaging instruction manual seems to confirm prior reports by Breitbart News that Republican Congressional leadership has no plans to enact popular immigration reforms to curb large-scale migration. Each August, Senators and Congressmen return home to listen to constituents concerns...
