Why the Obama Administration is Kicking this War Hero Out of the Military Will Shock You
Sergeant First Class (SFC) Charles Martland could be ejected from the U.S. military at any time.
He is a true war hero. He has earned the Bronze Star Medal. This Green Beret has bravely served in Afghanistan – a model soldier in the War on Terror. So why is he being kicked out of the Army?

New Hampshire Doesn’t Pick Presidents. New Hampshire Picks Losers.
The people of New Hampshire have a quaint self-delusion that they pick Presidents. In fact, they like to denigrate Iowa specifically by saying “Iowa picks corn, New Hampshire picks Presidents.” The actual truth is that New Hampshire has been on an unrelenting losing streak that goes back over three decades, for both parties. In every contested primary – Republican or Democrat – since 1992, New Hampshire has | Read More »
Goodbye Chris Christie And Good Riddance
Thanks Governor Christie. For nothing. You were a media darling back in 2013 when you overwhelmingly won re-election against a joke of a candidate in my former corrupt home state. That’s terrific. But you convinced yourself you could parlay that into a successful presidential run and you badly miscalculated. I wrote back in June of 2013 why you wouldn’t win the GOP nomination. Let’s face it. | Read More »
New Hampshire proves it: The establishment hates this guy!
There’s been a lot of jousting this cycle about who’s establishment, who’s an outsider, and who can shake up Washington and the Republican Party. But now that the PAC money has been spent, and the voters have spoken in Iowa and New Hampshire, we now know who the establishment likes, and who they hate.

Jebmentum: Feeling Proud About Spending $36.1M To Finish Fourth Place
Team Jeb is feeling great about where they stand in the race going forward after last night’s surprisingly strong finish. If you talk to anyone on Team Jeb, or any backer of Team Jeb, they will tell you that New Hampshire put them back in the race. “Here comes Jebmentum,” they will say. What, exactly, did Jeb Bush accomplish in the tiny state of New | Read More »
The Biggest Winner from New Hampshire Was Hillary Clinton
This is not one of those stupid, contrarian takes where I’m saying something just for shock value just to get clicks. Make no mistakes – Hillary Clinton may have lost by about 20 points last night, but she emerged from New Hampshire as the biggest winner of the night, and it was not close. Let’s make one thing clear: Hillary Clinton does not give a | Read More »
Is Chris Christie Dropping Out?
It sure seems that way. Christie is reportedly heading home to New Jersey to re-evaluate his candidacy. He was very clearly a dog backed into a corner in the New Hampshire debate, and he attacked who he saw as the biggest threat on the way to being the “Establishment” candidate – Marco Rubio. However, the strategy did not work, and Christie is (as of this | Read More »
End of the Line for These Three Republicans
Sadly, it appears that New Hampshire may have muddied the GOP field, rather than clarifying it. Even though Kasich and Jeb do not have obvious paths forward to the nomination, they are going to convince themselves that they do, at least through Super Tuesday – and they will probably find donors who will indulge that belief. Somewhere, Donald Trump is smiling about it all. However, | Read More »
New Hampshire and the Myth of Electability
The GOP Establishment is bound to be looking at New Hampshire, a state where they perform well, seeing Donald Trump coming away with a major and distant first place, and weeping to themselves that their party has gone so terribly awry. There are a couple of things I’d like to say to them, but in the interest of keeping things family friendly, I’ll let Marlon | Read More »
CNN Projects Winners in NH Literally the Second Polls Close
Based on the exit polling they have seen thus far, CNN has already called New Hampshire for both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, which is not a huge surprise.

How far behind Bernie Sanders will Hillary | Read More »
