    Donald Trump struck back at 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney Thursday, blasting the former Massachusetts governor for "begging" for his endorsement four years ago only to sharply criticize him now. "I don't know what happened to him," Trump said during a rally in Portland, Maine. "You can see how loyal he is. He was begging for my endorsement. I could have said, 'Mitt, drop to your knees.' He would have dropped to his knees." "Mitt is indeed a choke artist," Trump said. "He choked like I've never seen anyone choke. Other than Rubio." Trump also said that his net...
  • Why I Can’t Learn to Love Donald Trump (Ross Douthat)

    [A] Trumpian four years would almost certainly involve a significant degradation of the unwritten restraints on presidential conduct, an acceleration of royalist tendencies that may be built into our system but still deserve to be slowed down, and a blurring of reality-TV and political culture that takes us several leagues further along the road to President Camacho. I don’t think that the nebulous possibility of dealmaking should tempt liberals to welcome this kind of experiment; I don’t think the hope of a more working-class-friendly G.O.P. should tempt conservative reformers to learn to love it either. And the fact that recent...

    Why does the mainstream media heap such scorn and disbelief on Donald Trump over his promise to build a great wall along the border with Mexico — and make Mexico pay for it? After all, Donald Trump has built a winning presidential campaign — and made the media pay for it.

    MANCHESTER, New Hampshire Donald Trump on Monday night repeated the offensive term a woman attending his rally shouted in reference to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. After first calling on a woman close to the stage to "shout it out" again, Trump repeated the woman's one-word insult aimed at Cruz: "She said he's a pussy." The term was flung into the political orbit just a day before the New Hampshire primary as Trump was discussing Cruz's apparent hesitation during the last GOP debate on whether he would support waterboarding. Suddenly, Trump stopped mid-sentence, pointing to a woman near him in the...

    PORTSMOUTH, New Hampshire "And you can tell them to go f**k themselves," Donald Trump told a crowd at a Portsmouth Rally on Thursday night, uttering the expletive at the climax of the riff on his tax proposal. He was referring to companies that have relocated overseas for more favorable tax rates. (Trump: I'd be a "much different person" as president) Trump often relies on expletives and crude language to spice up his stump speech, though Thursday evening's event was a little more profane than usual...

    February 4, 2016 Trump: Politicians are 'full of s---' by Bradford Richardson Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he doesn't want to be politically incorrect, but he can't stop himself from saying politicians are "full of sh*t." "These people - I'd like to use really foul language," Trump said at a rally in Exeter, N.H. "I won't do it. I was going to say they're really full of sh*t. But I won't say that." "No, it's true. It's true. I won't say it. I won't say it. But they are," he added. "But I won't say that because it's too...

But actually the title would serve perfectly for the birth of the baby Jesus in the stable at Bethlehem, surrounded by his parents and beasts of the field. [] Whatever you think, whether you believe the Gospels or not, this is a story that has spoken to the hearts of men for 2,000 years, and still speaks to many of us. Who could ruin it? Who could want to ruin it? One answer is a stationery chain called Scribbler. It is stocking, by my count, some 50 Christmas cards...

    Donald Trump continued to defy the laws of political gravity on Monday as a Reuters/Ipsos poll found the real estate mogul holding onto a wide lead among Republicans in the U.S. presidential race despite an acerbic debate and a feud with a female television anchor that have bolstered charges of sexism. Trump led the party's 17-strong 2016 presidential field with the backing of 24 percent of Republican voters, unchanged from before Thursday's televised debate. His closest rival, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, trails at 12 percent, down from 17 percent before the debate.

    Almost no major "gay" event takes place without paying homage to the transgender movement as part of the next great "civil rights" struggle. And this was no exception. Besides "gay marriage," a major goal of the homosexual movement is normalizing "transgenderism" throughout society, including changing our basic foundations such as the family structure. Make no mistake: This movement is well organized and focused. We all see it through the intense lobbying to push "non-discrimination" on the basis of "gender identity" through legislatures and court rulings. It's also pushed hard in schools, large corporations and government bureaucracies. On the federal level,...

The fine was handed down after Hibbert issued an apology Sunday morning, saying in a statement that he sincerely has "deep...

    The Wall Street Journal calls the economic implosion now taking place in Europe "a crisis of the welfare state." The latest European nation to hit the wall is Italy, where national debt is 120 percent of GDP. That is, for every dollar their national economy produces, they owe $1.20. The Journal calls this a crisis of the welfare state because the Italian national debt is well in excess of the ability of Italians to pay its obligations and is the direct result of excessive government spending.

    President Barack Obamas re-election campaign is asking artists to design promotional posters that convey a message: support American jobs. The brutal irony for artists, however, is that they will receive no payment for their work. The campaign, which has $61 million on hand, will reward only the three artists whose work is selected for use. The compensation? A copy of their artwork, signed by the president. The Graphic Artists Guild isnt pleased with the ask. On Saturday, the guild issued an open letter to the campaign voicing outrage over what it called a shameful competition.

Yesterday, city officials were still recovering from the debacle, which happened at the end of the two-day Fiesta del Sol. snip The Solana Beach Chamber of Commerce produces the annual fiesta that features live music, arts and crafts, children's rides and international food. snip The singer, grandson of legendary country star Hank Williams, is known for his hard-driving songs and off-color language....

    The filmmaker who ate nothing but McDonald's meals for a month for his Oscar-nominated film "Super Size Me" gave a profanity-laced, politically incorrect speech at a suburban Philadelphia high school, but not everyone was lovin' it. Speaking at Hatboro-Horsham High School's first-ever health fair, Morgan Spurlock joked about the intelligence of McDonald's employees, about "retarded kids in the back wearing helmets" and teachers smoking pot in the balcony. The special education students in the back row were led by teachers out of the hourlong presentation. "If you put the whole package together, the use of the F-word and poking fun...

    Vetting advertisements for a magazine is always a little tricky. Editors have a financial responsibility to keep the publication going, and its a fairly well-established practice in the trade to accept ads that dont necessarily match the magazines editorial lineI suppose on the principle that if, say, the people at MoveOn.Org somehow believe their money is well spent trawling for converts with an ad in the John Birch Societys newsletter, its not the business of the John Birch Society to correct them. Still, there are limits. Take, for example, the ad on page 36 of the December 5 issue of...

    You work hard to raise your kids in a moral environment, only to catch them singing the latest Eminem lyrics they heard on the radio. You switch on the TV at 8pm, only to quickly switch it off again after the first few sexual jokes, wondering whatever happened to "family-friendly TV." And when not deluged with immorality, you instead get liberal politics shoved down your throat on sitcoms, in movies, and on supposedly unbiased newscasts. Doesn't it often feel like an uphill battle? We're fighting hard to lead our lives and raise our children according to our own values, but...

    Fourteen-year-old James Watkins says he was just trying to be funny. And, he says, plenty of other kids and passers-by thought it was funny, too. Steilacoom school officials didnt. They suspended the teen for three days for what Watkins considered a hilarious practical joke: wearing an inflatable penis costume on school grounds. James, a Pioneer Middle School eighth-grader, donned the outfit and showed it off to teens at a Saturday night homecoming dance at Steilacoom High School on Oct. 8. He and a friend, clad in regular clothes, didnt go into the dance, but walked near the school entrance and...

    Iran's New President Glorifies Martyrdom The act of martyrdom is often celebrated by the Iranian theocracy. Most recently, Iranian President-Elect Mahmoud Ahmadi-Nejad, in his second TV appearance since his election victory, spoke July 25, 2005 on Iranian Channel 1 in praise of "the art of martyrdom." The day after Ahmadi-Nejad's TV appearance, the London Arabic-language daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat published a report about his spiritual advisor, Ayatollah Mohammad Misbah Yazdi. The report advised Iranians on how to volunteer for the Iranian regime-sponsored volunteer martyrdom squad, and mentioned an Iranian women's volunteer group that is dedicated to carrying out martyrdom operations against...
