Myra Adams: The Last Three Presidents Lost the New Hampshire Primary but Won South Carolina
“The people of Iowa pick corn; the people of New Hampshire pick presidents.” This oft-quoted quip about the importance of the New Hampshire primary is usually attributed to former New Hampshire governor John Sununu.

Myra Adams: Run, Bloomberg, Run! He would make Trump a better candidate and help elect a Republican president
Re-posted from WND.com Immediately upon hearing that former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire CEO, was toying with launching an independent presidential bid, my thoughts turned to the 1992 presidential election.

Myra Adams: A Trump/Kasich Ticket?
RE-POSTED FROM NATIONAL REVIEW ONLINE If Donald Trump manages to win the Republican presidential nomination (and this is becoming less of an “if” with each passing day), then he must select a vice-presidential running mate.

Myra Adams: Will 2016 channel 1968 as a year that changed history?
Re-posted from National Review When one considers all the national and global crises that dominated the 2015 headlines, 2016 has the potential to be one of those landmark years that could change history.

‘Depraved Lovers in Commando Gear Kill 14 in San Bernardino’ – a new headline low for the Daily Beast
Although this lead story headline reads like satire from The Onion, is it how editors of the popular left-leaning website the Daily Beast describe the San Bernardino shooters, Syed Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik. In a classic case of political correctness gone amok, there is no mention of their widely reported “devout” Muslim faith or the male lover’s recent romantic trip to the Middle | Read More »
