  • The Immigration Surge has nothing to do with immigration

    One month ago (in June), the topic of immigration was at 5%. Today? It’s 17%. According to a Gallup poll released a few days ago, immigration has surged to the top of the list as “the Most Important U.S. Problem”. This replaces “dissatisfaction with government” (16%).

    It may be too soon to label it a trend and there is insufficient data to confirm it, but President Obama and his party may be losing their iron grip on their most loyal and enthusiastic voting bloc: African-Americans. Last Friday in Chicago, a group of black residents of the city's South Side, staged a protest against the violent shootings that are becoming as commonplace as White Sox games at Cellular Field. It wasn't just the protest that should concern the administration and Democrats; it was the language used by some of the protesters, many of whom at the time...

    "Political language,” warned George Orwell, “is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.” Politicians understand that words matter and can be used to trick people. Which is why they can hardly be trusted to express themselves candidly in their own campaigns — or, heaven forbid, write ballot titles for important measures upon which citizens will vote. Earlier this year, citizens in Phoenix, Arizona, gathered more than 50,000 voter signatures to put an initiative on the ballot to reform their public employee pension system. The initiative moves new...

    Those of us who have followed the decline of America under Barack Hussein Obama are supposed to be encouraged by the results of a recent New York Times survey on attitudes toward the president and his policies. The sharp drop in support for this enemy of America is a nice thing but the numbers leave questions that tell a bigger story. While those who have ears to hear and eyes to see recognize that Obama is the worst president in American history, it is a tragedy that at least 40% of Americans identify themselves as too greedy, too stupid or...
  • Espaillat camp slams Rangel for ‘trying to suppress Hispanic vote’

    The hotly contested Democratic congressional primary in Harlem turned uglier than ever with challenger Adriano Espaillat’s campaign accusing Rep. Charles Rangel of sending out fake eviction notices to suppress the Hispanic vote in Tuesday’s election. A stunned Rangel, 84, who has marched and fought for civil rights during his five-decade career, insisted the accusation was a lie and immediately demanded an apology from Espaillat, a state senator. The explosive claim against Rangel was leveled in tweets by Espaillat campaign adviser Lis Smith.

    Daily Beast ^ | 06.09.14 | Lloyd Green
    Hillary Clinton’s strength among white voters is the key to 2016—and it spells nearly certain defeat and disaster for Republicans. Culture will likely shape the 2016 presidential elections, and this is bad news for the Republican Party. Recent polls show Hillary Clinton running well among white voters overall, showing real strength among white non-evangelical Protestants, and running competitively among white Catholics. Trailing only among evangelicals, Clinton is poised to move beyond the upstairs-downstairs coalition that brought Barack Obama to the White House, and that continues to characterize his policies and presidency to this day.

    It's a cliche to say that Washington, D.C., is "out of touch" with voters, but there's something to it. Arguably, in 2012, the Republican Party seemed focused on a subject -- debt -- that wasn't a high priority for average Americans. Sincere Republicans (including this columnist) believe it should be. Nations that cannot pay their bills eventually fall into decline, hardship and worse when governments resort to inflation to pay off their debts. It's easier to make small adjustments now than to endure wrenching hardships later. But the voters remain to be convinced. The Democratic Party today is similarly situated...

By opposing us to the bitter end they will earn the enmity of these new voters. They should...

    Where have we seen an anti-Obamacare threshold of two-thirds before? Oh, right. In this case, undecided voters basically fall into two categories. They're either pure independents, or they're low information voters who nonetheless say they're likely to go to the polls in November. It looks like the GOP is enjoying a significant advantage among both groups heading into the midterms -- including with those under-informed voters who are so often ripe for Democrats' picking. The perception that Obamacare stinks has calcified in the public's imagination, and it's tough to reverse those sort of sentiments, especially amidst powerful headwinds. Check out...

The decision to turn over the data to the DNC comes despite initial discussions about creating an external corporation to house the Obama campaign data.

There is really nothing complicated about the facts. The Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted all the money required to keep all government activities going — except for ObamaCare. This is not a matter of opinion. You can check the Congressional Record. As for the House of Representatives' right to grant or withhold money, that is not a matter of opinion either....

    The Tampa Bay Times this week resumed its attacks on Florida state officials for enforcing existing law by removing non-citizens and convicted felons from Florida voting rolls. On August 3, the Times published an article, “Renewed ‘scrub’ of Florida voter list has elections officials on edge.” The article quoted local election officials who object to doing the work required to maintain the integrity of local voter rolls. Revealing a lack of objectivity, the article did not quote any elected officials who support efforts to ensure that illegal votes do not cancel out the votes of legal voters. Adding additional bias...

    The conventional wisdom still holds that “Social Security is the third rail in American politics.” The metaphor refers, of course, to the third rail of electric-powered trains, and touching that rail will most likely be fatal. Like most conventional wisdom, though, it is clearly wrong. For example, if some politician discussed making social security voluntary, it is difficult to see how such a concept would be fatal—especially if articulated to younger voters. What would be fatal is the notion of taking social security away from those already receiving and relying on it, and I’ve never heard anyone suggest that. The...

    Watch as a bunch of drooling half-witted college students proudly display their ignorance of why we celebrate Independence Day. They seem to be trying to prove how Un-Old-White-Man they are by laughing at questions about American history because “it’s meaningless dude.” These morons worked and voted for their own enslavement under the reign of “Cool King Barack” and have no idea who King George was. Let’s hope they enjoy it.

    <p>If you voted this election season, President Obama almost certainly has a file on you. His vast campaign database includes information on voters’ magazine subscriptions, car registrations, housing values and hunting licenses, along with scores estimating how likely they were to cast ballots for his reelection.</p>
  • Lawmakers negotiating to double donor limit, allow online registration

    Madison — Democrats and Republicans in the Assembly are working together on a bill that would double the amount donors can give politicians and allow voters to register online. It's a surprise collaboration that emerged just days after Democrats reacted with outrage at a public hearing to an earlier version of the bill from Republicans. A new draft of the measure made public Friday night shows the GOP was willing to drop some elements that Democrats consider onerous to accomplish something both parties want — raising contribution limits. Meanwhile, a bill has been put on the fast track that would...

    The true source of the hellishly-hot-mess of a government America currently finds herself saddled with ultimately has to be the willfully uninformed Americans that voted for him... especially the ones not on welfare that pulled the lever for Obama twice. It's these supporters that are really what's wrong with this country.  Why try to blame a statist ruling class living like kings on our dime- unprincipled people usually take care of themselves first. But they wouldn't be there if not for millions of voters who handed it to them on a platter. People like John Kerry, Hillary, Obama... they're...

    America's blacks voted at a higher rate than other minority groups in 2012 and by most measures surpassed the white turnout for the first time, reflecting a deeply polarized presidential election in which blacks strongly supported Barack Obama while many whites stayed home. Had people voted last November at the same rates they did in 2004, when black turnout was below its current historic levels, Republican Mitt Romney would have won narrowly, according to an analysis conducted for The Associated Press. Census data and exit polling show that whites and blacks will remain the two largest racial groups of eligible...
