President Obama Actually Believes This
Obama’s State of the Union speech was more focused on overarching rhetoric than specific policy proposals. He attempted to keep it lighter and avoid almost any specifics at all. As he noted when he began his speech, the expectations for his accomplishments during an election year are exceptionally low. The key thing I found from his speech is that this is something he actually believes. | Read More »
Ted Cruz Super PAC Ad On Marco Rubio’s Immigration Policies Is Brutal (VIDEO)
Mike Murphy should take a lesson from the guys over at Keep The Promise. They have just released an ad about Marco Rubio’s record on immigration and it pulls no punches. Instead of relying on silly imagery about Rubio’s boots and 50 year old pop culture references, this ad goes directly at Rubio’s record, particularly his work on comprehensive immigration reform, aka ‘The Gang of | Read More »

Hillary Clinton is tanking in the polls, as two of them in succession have shown that her national lead over Bernie Sanders has dwindled to single digits. She further faces the spectre of another long trickle of damaging email releases, coupled with the expected release of Houma Abedin’s personal email right about exactly the time Super Tuesday is going to happen.

You Are Not Ready for this Hot Take on Ted Cruz’s Citizenship
Since 2008 I have been a licensed lawyer, and almost all of that time I have been an active litigator. So I thought I had encountered at least one graduate from literally every law school in country by this point, including a couple that were not accredited. So imagine my surprise when the Washington Post managed to find someone who was a law professor at | Read More »
The Case For Marco Rubio, Part I: Experience
The two main goals of the primary process – whether in a presidential or other race – are to choose the best candidate to do the job, and the candidate with the best chance of winning the job. Less than three weeks from the Iowa Caucus and less than a month from the New Hampshire Primary, we have reached a time for choosing. That choice | Read More »
Psychoanalyzing the Ted Cruz Hatred
An industry is growing of GOP and Democrat establishment types who cry that the GOP is finished if Ted Cruz gets the nomination. Their reason has nothing to do with concern for the party and everything to do with their way of life.

Did Iran Just Steal Two Boats from the U.S. Navy? (UPDATE x 4: Maybe) (UPDATE 5: Ho boy. Iran Accuses U.S. of Spying, Basically)
An AP Writer has just tweeted the most bizarre statement from the Pentagon. The only reasonable way that I can interpret this is that Iran has somehow stolen two boats from our Navy, and while they intend to return the crew, they are keeping the boats: WASHINGTON (AP) — #Pentagon: 2 Navy boats in Iranian custody but #Iran tells #US that crew will be | Read More »
Five Promises Obama Has Repeatedly Made (and Broken) in his State of the Union Speeches
For some reason, people watch the State of the Union Address every year. Personally, even though my job is to cover politics, I find the entire exercise a mind-numbing waste of time. The last State of the Union that was in any way noteworthy was in 2002 when President Bush addressed a nation still smarting from 9/11 and we wanted to hear our President explain | Read More »
Ted Cruz Just Unloaded on Donald Trump
It appears that the bromance between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump is probably over for good. I mean, it was one thing to see Donald Trump openly attacking Cruz for days on end. We’ve seen that before, and never before had Cruz taken the bait. It appears that this method of dealing with Trump has finally reached its end in the Cruz campaign. (CRUZ): I | Read More »
I will phone bank for Hillary if Trump is nominated.
During the height of the George W. Bush administration, immigration reform became one of his stated goals. He was squishier than the conservative base, but seemed to genuinely believe he could push for a system which would expel illegals that had committed crimes beyond their illegal entry, while finding a way for those already here illegally to become at minimum, taxpayers who weren’t hiding. I | Read More »
Hillary Clinton Calls On Obama To End Immigration Raids
Someone really ought to tell Hillary Clinton that pandering condescension is just as offensive to Latinos as it is to white people. In yet another embarrassing effort to garner Latino votes, Hillary Clinton has now spoken out about the DHS immigration raids that began on New Year’s weekend. Honestly, this is worse than the borderline racist “Hillary Clinton is Just like your Abuela” campaign. Surprisingly | Read More »

Textbook Publisher Rep Fired After Admitting on Camera that Common Core is All About the Money (VIDEO)
Project Veritas has a new video out, this time with undercover journalists asking educators and education company executives about whether or not Common Core State Standards and the curricula built around them are really for the kids.

State Department To Release Huma Abedin’s Emails
Hillary Clinton’s former deputy chief of staff, Huma Abedin, is about to join Clinton in having her personal emails exposed to the world. Through their Freedom of Information Act request, the organization Judicial Watch was successful in getting the State Department to agree to sift through the 29,000 pages of emails from Huma to Hillary.
