    Jeb Bush Campaign Shows that There’s No Substitute for a Good Candidate

    Jeb Bush Campaign Shows that There's No Substitute for a Good Candidate

    Time was, the first quarter of this year would have almost conclusively sewn up the GOP primary for Jeb Bush. It used to be that locking up a ton of money and early endorsements and setting yourself up as the inevitable front runner mattered a lot. Maybe it wasn’t dispositive, but it was very close to it. In every contested GOP primary since at least | Read More »

    Jeb Bush loses the money race that counts

    Jeb Bush loses the money race that counts

    Last week we reported on how the Jeb Bush campaign was shaping up to look like Scott Walker’s. Though his campaign raised $13.4M in the previous quarter, he finished up with $10.3M indicating he spent $1.1M more than he brought in. (Keep this number in mind as we go along.) In response, Bush has ordered salaries slashed and major cut back in expenditures. BREAKING NEWS: | Read More »

    The State of the GOP Polling: Trump and Carson, Carson and Trump

    The State of the GOP Polling: Trump and Carson, Carson and Trump

    We’re still over 3 months out from the first Presidential primary steps for the 2016 race. However it’s still worth looking at where the polls are, remembering that polls this early don’t and aren’t designed to predict the outcome of the primaries, so much as they exist to give us the state of the electorate. I said before that we’d reached peak Trump, and the | Read More »

    Ben Carson Will Likely Win Iowa

    Ben Carson Will Likely Win Iowa

    Ben Carson fits Iowa Republican caucus goers like a glove. He’s soft spoken, deeply evangelical, and can talk to them about the issues they care about with a sincerity that none of the other Republican candidates can match. Questions still abound about Carson’s readiness to mount a full strength national campaign and his command of the issues, but these are questions that are notoriously irrelevant | Read More »

    National Abortion Federation videos leaked

    National Abortion Federation videos leaked

    Back in August, a pro-abort Obama-appointed federal judge in California, William Orrick, took to the field to protect the National Abortion Federation from public exposure as a truly evil and unethical organization. David Daleiden’s group, Center for Medical Progress, had video of a conclave of the baby-killing industry and the group didn’t want to be exposed so they got a federal judge to impose what | Read More »

    FEMA Refuses to Help Navajo with Gold King Mine Spill

    As you should know by now, the EPA’s mismanagement of an operation to add a tap to the tailing pond of the Gold King Mine in Colorado has caused a monumental environmental disaster. The toxic wastewater flooded into the Animas and San Juan Rivers, and the Navajo in New Mexico and Arizona are the people who have been suffering the brunt of the disaster. Thus far, | Read More »

    Back To The Past: Dems Still Blame A Video For Benghazi

    Back To The Past: Dems Still Blame A Video For Benghazi

    It is fitting in this week of “Back to the Future” nostalgia that we should all get together for a little time traveling, a trip all the way back to 2012. Movies about time travel, like the concept itself, are simply fiction. But what better place for fiction than the hallowed halls of Congress, where some of the lamest stories ever told are crafted almost | Read More »

    Conservatives United Get Huge Wins for the GOP

    There is lots and lots of condescension in Washington by those who loathe the House Freedom Caucus and outside conservative groups. They’re referred to as the “entertainment wing of the GOP,” accused of being in it for the money, and laughed at as if no reasonable person could possibly agree with them. All the dripping scorn and condescension hide a very simple fact — the | Read More »

    Hillary Lied: She Knew All Along Benghazi Was A Planned Terror Attack

    Hillary Lied: She Knew All Along Benghazi Was A Planned Terror Attack

    Hillary Clinton nor anybody else can keep up the lie about the Benghazi attacks and some fictional attachment to an internet video that hardly anybody had ever seen prior to the night of September 11, 2012. Following the attacks of that night, Hillary Clinton made no less than three statements attributing the attacks to a spontaneous event that came about as a result of this | Read More »

    Death of US soldier in Iraq will not be classified as combat

    Death of US soldier in Iraq will not be classified as combat

    Early Thursday morning, Iraq time, a unit of Kurd commandos with US advisors (I’m presuming Special Forces) raided an ISIS installation to free a large number of prisoners being held there, including about three dozen Iraqi government soldiers. In the course of the raid, one American was killed. An American soldier was killed on Thursday morning as American and Kurdish commandos raided an Islamic State | Read More »

    Jake Tapper Understands the Issues in Benghazi

    I just spent the whole day watching the same Democrats who held 77 hearings and countless investigations into the Iraq war they all voted for complain that Republicans were wasting their time holding an 8th hearing on Benghazi. was literally the only Democrat in the room who came to do anything other than lick Hillary’s boots or to quote and/or , neither of whom have ever | Read More »

    Barack Obama Vetos Defense Bill Because It Spends Too Little

    The glory days of big spending liberalism are back. Barack Obama has just vetoed a defense spending bill that spends $612 billion. Why? It does not spend enough on non-defense spending. That’s right. Barack Obama wanted more domestic spending. The Republicans and enough Democrats in the Senate refused. So Obama vetoed it. He wants bigger government or no defense. That’s the American left. By the | Read More »

    The Benghazi Hearing Should Not Be, But Is, A Waste of Time

    There are still, despite a media effort to deny it, a lot we do not know about Libya and Benghazi. Only now do we have Ambassador Stephens’ emails. Only recently did we learn that Hillary Clinton was being privately advised by people with financial interests in the Libyan outcome. For example, it is clear from Hillary Clinton’s emails that the Obama Administration did not want | Read More »

    Donald Trump Tries To Backtrack After Insulting Iowa Voters As Brain-Damaged Corn-Huffers

    “Will this be the gaffe that finally sinks Donald Trump” has been a popular parlor game for some months now, and while polling shows that Trump is accumulating unfavorables and hard-core opponents in Iowa and seems to be stalling in persuading any additional supporters, his long-awaited collapse in the polls has yet to materialize and increasingly looks like it is more likely to be a | Read More »
