    Utah Senate candidate and former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney claimed Saturday that he wasn't a leader in the "never Trump" movement among conservatives, and said some of the president's policies have been "pretty effective." Romney was asked following a rally in support of Arizona Senate candidate Martha McSally (R) about where he stands with Trump given his fierce criticism of the president during the 2016 campaign. "You led the never Trump movement. I mean, what happened with that?" a reporter asked, in a video posted online. "I don’t think that was the case," Romney responded. "President Trump was not...

    This race probably won’t draw too much national attention, but New York’s 23rd Congressional District has revealed a rather interesting election strategy by the Democrat who is attempting to unseat Republican Tom Reed. (Disclosure: I campaigned with Reed a couple of times in 2010 and 2012 but never worked for him.) The Dems selected Dr. Tracy Mitrano, a professor of law and communications, in the primary this summer. It was a crowded primary field and everyone had to stake out their progressive bona fides early on. As part of that effort, Mitrano went on record saying that she supported a...

    ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo, running for a third term and a potential candidate for president in 2020, acknowledged Friday that he was “inartful” when he said this week that America “was never that great.”The Democrat went on to expound on something that few elected officials ever need to spell out.“I want to be very clear: Of course America is great and of course America has always been great,” Cuomo said on a teleconference with reporters.Cuomo’s appraisal of the nation was somewhat different Wednesday when, speaking at a Manhattan bill signing, he critiqued Republican President Donald Trump and...
  • Brazile: I Found 'No Evidence' That Dem Primaries Were 'Rigged'

    Donna Brazile, the former interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), on Sunday said she found no evidence “whatsoever” that the 2016 primary process was “rigged.” “I found no evidence, none whatsoever,” Brazile said on ABC News’ “This Week.” Brazile claimed the only thing she found “was this memorandum that prevented the DNC from running its own operation.” In a piece in Politico on Tuesday, Brazile accused Hillary Clinton’s campaign of exerting improper financial and decision-making control over the DNC before she won the party’s nomination. Asked on Sunday to comment on Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) claim that the 2016 Democratic primary was rigged for Clinton,...

The 2nd is that if Trump were not president he could still do the same thing.</p>

    Are we sure that Trump’s going to end up having to fire Steve Bannon? Between this and the Syria bombing, the nationalists in the White House may just up and quit.If you think these broken promises are big news, wait until Trump comes out in favor of TPP. Mr. Trump said the reason he has changed his mind on one of his signature campaign promises is that China hasn’t been manipulating its currency for months and because taking the step now could jeopardize his talks with Beijing on confronting the threat of North Korea.“They’re not currency manipulators,” Mr. Trump said…Mr....

    Conservative Review ^ | 04/07/2017 | Robert Eno
    After a tumultuous first 75 days in office, there are reports that President Donald Trump is looking at a major shakeup of his inner circle. Mike Allen, reporting at Axios, reported that both Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon may be out. Priebus as chief of staff has been a mistake from the beginning. Any schadenfreude conservatives may feel over this development should be tempered by thoughts of what may come next. The four names reported by Allen are all creatures of the swamp Trump professes to want to drain. With the failure to repeal Obamacare marring the start of Trump’s...

    MISSION — Hours before the president talked about “bad people with bad ideas” entering the country at a rally in Florida, a United States senator strapped on a vest, walked through the thick Rio Grande Valley brush as Friday night turned to Saturday and found what he, President Donald Trump and many discuss in Washington D.C. The senator linked the findings to organized violent crime. “There were more than one that were large, young men with a significant percentage of tattoos that might suggest gang affiliation,” U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said Saturday afternoon, recounting an overnight ride along with...

    ... On Friday, Republicans leaked what they said was a quote from Rhodes: "We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don't want to undermine the FBI investigation." But it turns out that in the actual email, Rhodes did not mention the State Department. It read: "We need to resolve this in a way that respects all of the relevant equities, particularly the investigation." Republicans also provided what they said was a quote from an email written by State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland. The Republican version quotes Nuland...

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Thursday walked back comments that President Obama was "directly responsible" for the mass shooting at an Orlando nightclub that left 49 people dead. "I misspoke," McCain said in a statement. "I did not mean to imply that the President was personally responsible. I was referring to President Obama's national security decisions, not the President himself."

    GUTHRIE: Do you believe in raising taxes on the wealthy? TRUMP: I do. I do – including myself. I do. That was...this morning, in an interview that featured some other controversial statements.  In fairness to Trump, he's been using the "raise taxes on rich people like me" line for months, embracing Obama-style class warfare tax gimmicks like the 'Buffet Rule.'  But raising taxes on anyone, an outcome Trump just re-endorsed, is not what his formal policy agenda proposes.  Just the opposite.  As we've seen on issues such immigration, abortion and foreign policy, Trump routinely makes clear that he isn't familiar with his own positions.  His stances aren't...
  • Confusion follows Trump flip-flop on key immigration issue

    Mt. Vernon Register-News ^ | March 10, 2016 | Byron York
    Donald Trump won the South Carolina primary across the board, but he did particularly well with the 10 percent of voters who named immigration as the nation's top issue. In addition, some who named other issues -- the economy, national security -- were undoubtedly also concerned about immigration, and Trump's hard line likely helped him with them, too. Which is why people who follow immigration closely were stunned Thursday night when Trump, at the Fox News debate here in Detroit, announced that he has changed his position on one key element of the immigration debate -- the use of H-1B...

Trump suggested Wednesday morning on "Fox and Friends" that Cruz was making the statement "because he had such a bad night last night."

    The final Republican presidential debate before the Iowa caucuses was missing the field's loudest mouth, Donald Trump. But not to worry: Stephen Colbert on Thursday hosted an all-Trump debate — in which Trump debated himself. What followed was a "debate" in which Colbert cut back and forth between some of Trump's many contradicting past comments.

    When it comes to immigration reform, Senator Ted Cruz has made it abundantly clear what he opposes: giving citizenship to people who broke the law to come here. What has not been as evident is what he supports: legal status for millions of people here already, while making it easier for immigrants to come here through the front door. "I have said many times that I want to see common-sense immigration reform pass," he said. "I think most Americans want to see the problem fixed."

Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz was grilled Sunday morning by Fox News host Chris Wallace over his flipped vote on crop insurance. "One final question, and as I say we're just running out of time, you condemn the Washington cartel, which you call the lobbyists and career politicians who rig the game. I want to ask you about one of your recent acts as a senator," Wallace said before playing video of Cruz switching...
