    Head of Israeli branch of GOP rips father of Muslim soldier, claims Democrats are worried about Clinton's lackluster performance. Attorney Marc Zell, chairman of the Republican Party’s Israel branch, suggested that despite a post-convention bump for Hillary Clinton, Democrats are beginning to panic over their nominee’s performance and the chances Donald Trump could win this November. < - SNIP -> “Barack Obama in 2008 was not prepared for the presidency. He also had no experience, and we’re seeing the results after eight years. There are political attacks [against Trump] that mask the panic among Democrats following Trump’s nomination; they’re worried...
  • In Clintonland, It's 'DEFCON 1' for Trump

    For more than two years, Hillary Clinton has been Democrats' sure-thing next presidential nominee, while Republicans sorted through a messy and expansive field of wannabes. Yet now, she's dealing with an interminable primary, as the GOP's new presumptive nominee Donald Trump trains his sights on her. The sudden departures of Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. John Kasich from the Republican race - which came sooner than Clinton aides expected - coupled with Sen. Bernie Sanders' decision to stay in the race, creates a new challenge for Clinton, who now has to defend herself on two flanks. "I'm still trying to...

    One of the more ironic aspects of campaign 2016 is that Donald Trump, for all his constant talk of winning, often doesn't know the simplest things about how to win.Not more than a couple of days after taking the presidential high road, complimenting his opponents and calling himself a unifier at his post-Super Tuesday press conference, at a point when it looked as if a sizable number, if not a stampede, of conservatives and Republicans were poised to join his "movement," all he had to do at the next debate was be reasonably pleasant and offer halfway decent answers on...

    Both telling it like it is… Check it out: Although he’s been villified by amnesty advocates, business tycoon Donald Trump is right about the problems, including crime, caused by people crossing into the United States illegally, says the former governor of Arizona. “I believe that Mr. Trump is kind of telling it like it really, truly is,” Republican Jan Brewer told CNN’s Don Lemon Wednesday night. “You know, being the governor of (Arizona), the gateway of illegal immigration for six year

    (When I wrote this in 2011. Considering the current headlines I decided to re-post in it entirety. I truly expected this to still happen. It seems I was off by one election, because much of what we see happening today is what I expected leading into the 2012 election. I woulk advise everyone to be prepared, because what is taking place right now, will be 10 times worse next Summer during the Primaries. Setting things up for Obama to possibly declare Martial Law. Something that even Rush Limbaugh himself admitted is a possibility.) When Obama won the election against...
  • A 2016 Preview? Rand Paul vs Hillary Clinton on Taxes

    06/25/2014 7:14:41 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 9 replies ^ | June 25, 2014 | Daniel J. Mitchell
    I wrote a post several years ago contrasting a good initiative by Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky and a statist proposal by Senator Chuck Schumer of New York. There was no connection between the two ideas, but I thought the comparison helped show the difference between someone who instinctively wants more freedom and someone who reflexively thinks there should be more government control. Let’s do the same thing, but this time highlight a difference between Rand Paul and Hillary Clinton, particularly since the two of them may be rivals in 2016. First, let’s look at what Rand Paul recently said...
  • Do We Dare Elect A Republican President In 2016?

    The other day I was talking to my friend, Steve, about politics. I met Steve in 2008, when we had both volunteered to work on the McCain-Palin campaign. At that time, Steve and I wound up doing frequent door-to-door canvassing together, and feverishly working the phone banks for the national, state, and local races. We both soon became GOP precinct captains of our adjoining respective areas, and even though I later moved a short distance away, we have stayed in close contact ever since, occasionally reuniting to volunteer on campaigns, attending political meetings and events, and talking on the phone...
  • Kathleen Parker Anoints Hillary To 'Save The World'

    What a piker, that Barack Obama. All he was going to do was stop the rise of the oceans and begin to heal the planet. Hillary can do a heck of a lot more. She can actually . . . "save the world." Just ask Kathleen Parker. The Washington Post columnist that—laughably—some still label a conservative, recommends in in her latest column that Hillary should run on the narrative that she is the person to, yes, "save the world." Parker appeared on Morning Joe today to advance her argument, asserting that "there's no one better suited to sort of lead...

    In Czech Republic, a leading presidential candidate has a full-face tattoo File this under, “Things that could never happen in America.” That man is Vladimir Franz, a Czech composer who is tattooed from head — and face — to toe, and he’s third in the polls in the Czech Republic’s presidential election, which is going on Friday and Saturday. This is the first time Czechs will directly elect a president — a mainly ceremonial position because the prime minister largely runs the country. Since the breakup of Czechoslovakia, the Czech Republic has had two presidents, Vaclav Havel and Vaclav Klaus,...

    Naturally, if you support Obama and are treated every day to wall-to-wall news headlines showing Obama so far ahead of Romney in the polls that the election is basically over, then you're less likely to go out of your way to vote in November. So there's a really fine line between turning out your voters and turning off your voters when using polling data like this.
  • Obama to Cut 131 Million Dollars from Embassy Security (Just Wow)

    09/16/2012 9:17:12 PM PDT · by My Favorite Headache · 36 replies
    You have to give Obama credit, this is a man who knows how to deal with a crisis. Some nut like Mitt Romney would run around shooting Muslims from the hip, but Obama meets with his advisers and dutifully studies ways to make each and every crisis that much worse. Because that’s what good government is. Obama’s Sequestration Plan Would Cut $1.084 Billion From The State Department’s Diplomatic And Consular Program, Including $2 Million For The Protection Of Foreign Missions And Officials, And $129 Million For Embassy Security, Construction, And Maintenance.

    Collectivism: a political or economic theory advocating collective control especially over production and distribution. If Chuck Todd is right, our country is in trouble. On Morning Joe today, discussing President Obama's "you didn't build that" remarks, NBC political director Todd opined that "half this country believes" we are about collectivism.

    Call it damning with pink praise . . . On today's Morning Joe, BBC's Katty Kay, anchor of the network's American edition, said that Europeans favor the re-election of President Obama because he is more supportive of "European social-democratic values." You know, those wonderful welfare-state policies that have worked their magic so well that Europe now enjoys . . . an 11.1% unemployment rate. View the video here.

    Jewish World Review ^ | 1/26/2012 | Jonathan Tobin
    Jewish liberals have a difficult task this year in defending Barack Obama's record. But, luckily for them, it is far easier to stir up suspicion about conservative Republicans than it is to convince liberals to connect the dots about Barack Obama's troubling record on Israel. Convincing wavering Jewish liberals and moderates to stick with the Democrats is generally just a matter of reminding these voters that conservative Republicans are generally allied with the Christian right, a group many Jews fear more than Hamas, Hezbollah or al-Qaeda. That is often enough to overcome the fact that even liberals are aware that...

    If Newt Gingrich is the Republican presidential candidate, will Joe Scarborough abstain on election day? The question arises because on Morning Joe today, Scarborough flatly declared that Gingrich "is not fit to be the President of the United States." It was Newt's acceptance of $1 million-plus in fees from Freddie Mac, while subsequently suggesting that "politicians who profited" from the environment surrounding Fannie and Freddie should go to jail, that set Scarborough off.

I am drawn to the quote from the former Speaker of the House. I take “local” to mean pertaining to self-interest. Now, we in America will be forced to decide what is in our best interests. To stay on our current path or head in a new direction that will lead to a more prosperous and stronger America. Of course there are those whom would argue the point with me rather voraciously.

    Los Angeles Times / ^ | October 1, 2011, 5:43 p.m. | By Mark Z. Barabak and Paul West, Los Angeles Times
    Barely three months before the first votes are cast, the Republican race for president is up for grabs, complicated by the absence of a clear front-runner and the rules that have guided the GOP's selection process for the past several decades. The rise of the "tea party" movement, with its contempt for convention, has undermined the tradition of bestowing the nomination on the candidate presumed next in line, who usually paid their dues through long service or a previous White House try. At the same time, a new way of awarding delegates has largely eliminated the winner-take-all system that hastened...

    Tim Pawlenty's first Iowa spot: 'If I can do it in Minnesota ...' 6/22/11 Alexander Burns Tim Pawlenty is taking the next major step today in his run for president, going on the air in Iowa with a wave of cable ads touting his record as governor of Minnesota. Pawlenty’s commercials define the choice facing Republican primary voters this way: “A lot of candidates will come to Iowa and say the same things. The question is, have they done it?” Pawlenty’s spot answers the question by casting him as a solid conservative governor who “reduced spending in real terms” and...
