Four Pro-Gun Senate Democrats Silent on Obama’s Supreme Court Nominee
All four Senate Democrats voted against portions of the 2013 gun-control package. All have A letter grades with the NRA. All are running for reelection in red states in 2018. But none will say if they’ll support a gun-control nominee to the Supreme Court.

Kasich’s Nice Guy Routine Is Destroyed When You Learn What He Did in 2014
Today I was seeing something flying about on social media about John Kasich. He hugged it out with a crying supporter and said “We don’t have enough people who sit down and cry with that young man.” Here’s some video if you can stomach it: .@JohnKasich: “We don’t have enough people that sit down and cry with that young man.” #SCPrimaryhttps://t.co/4YsAkfXUj6 — CSPAN (@cspan) February | Read More »
CNN GOP Town Hall Open Thread
Well, for the second time in a row, Donald Trump will field questions in a town hall format, only this time he will do so with an actual media host, instead of an unabashed pair of fans. Jeb and Kasich will also be there. Open thread in the comments.
The One Time Donald Trump Uses Notes
Let’s say this: I think this Pope ought to butt out of American politics forever. Instead of lecturing Donald Trump about it being non-Christian to build a wall, he should maybe lecture Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders on how it’s not Christian to support abortion on demand. I know our Catholic readers are not going to want to hear this, and I normally steer very clear of | Read More »
Governor Walker Defunds Planned Parenthood, and Governor Kasich May Do So Next
Today, Governor Scott Walker continued to take a stand for life as he signed two bills into law which essentially defund Planned Parenthood in his state. Walker has been an unapologetic defender of unborn life in the Badger State. In July of 2015, the then-presidential hopeful signed a 20 week abortion ban into law. This morning he signed AB 310/SB 237 and SB 238/AB 311, both of which direct | Read More »

This New National NBC Poll is Sure to Cause Panic in Clinton Land
Yesterday, Quinnipiac released the first national Democratic poll since Clinton’s New Hampshire debacle, and it showed Sanders only 2 points behind Hillary nationally. But hey, that’s just one poll and one poll can definitely be bad. Then USA Today/Suffolk released another poll that showed Sanders had closed to within 10, but hey, still no reason to panic. Then NBC released another national poll less than | Read More »
Hillary Clinton Compromised The Identity Of A CIA Asset On Her Private Email Server
I’m sure this isn’t very important because, as someone famous once said, “What difference at this point does it make?” The guy does seem to be dead, so not much we can do. Late last month, it was revealed that at least one of the emails stored on Hillary Clinton’s private email server was highly classified because it contained information derived from/pertaining to a human | Read More »
Guess Who Staunchly Defended Senate’s Constitutional Role in Supreme Court Confirmation…Until Now
The five highest-ranking Democrats in the nation once staunchly defended the Senate’s constitutional role in the Supreme Court confirmation process.

Wouldn’t You Like More Ads Like ‘Stop’
So it’s nice to see ad like the Cruz Campaign’s “Stop” — a positive 60 second message launched Thursday. In the ad, Cruz restates his commitment to standing with the American people and not Washington dealmakers, while laying out his positive, conservative vision for America

This is NOT a Clip of Trump Flip-Flopping on Immigration (VIDEO)
I was surfing around the Internet this afternoon, and I found this (mostly unnoticed) clip from Monday, and when you watch it, it’s going to sound like Donald Trump executing a truly massive flip flop on immigration. In fact, that is exactly how Mediaite described it. However, I am here to promise you that it is not. That is not to say that I am going to | Read More »
Crazy: Latest ARG SC Primary Poll Still Has Kasich Ahead Of Cruz; Jeb Fading
This is really weird. ARG (which is a pretty good pollster) has new results out for today that just don’t seem to add up. If you look at the results, Ted Cruz has taken a big hit and John Kasich has moved up. Here are the numbers: Donald Trump 33% [33%] (35%) Marco Rubio 20% [16%] (14%) John Kasich 15% [14%] (15%) Ted Cruz 13% | Read More »
Is MSNBC Going Easy On Donald Trump Because They Need the Ratings?
When you look at the frequency with which Donald Trump appears on MSNBC, his solo town hall with them last night, and the softball questions he gets, you begin to wonder what’s up. For about two seconds.

Succeeding Scalia: The New York Times rediscovers push polling
The British TV comedy series Yes, Prime Minister* made fun of political issue polling by pointing out that shady pollsters can get any result they want, and someone with an agenda is usually more than happy to use such a shady poll to push that agenda. Today The New York Times reported giddily that if they led up to their key agenda question, with a | Read More »
The ratings of last night’s MSNBC/CNN town halls just might startle you!
