The underreported storyline of Ted Cruz’s Iowa surge
is on the move in Iowa. He’s crossed the 20 point mark in four straight polls and when you take into account the noise inherent in polling, he’s basically even with Donald Trump in Iowa at this point. That’s important because it could mark a permanent change in how Republican Presidential candidates address the state.
Obama Administration Misled Congress on Bergdahl Deal
We knew about Bowe Bergdahl’s plight, and we knew the U.S. policy of not negotiating with terrorists. It was an unfortunate plight for Bergdahl, but it was unclear how the U.S. would possibly get him back. Then, suddenly, he was here, and there was a press conference announcing his safe return. That’s when we found out the price of getting him back: We traded prisoners | Read More »
Are Jeb Bush’s Campaign AND Super PAC Nearly Broke?
Why, Jeb? Many of us have asked this question. First as a query as to the reason for his candidacy and now as a plea for Bush to end his embarrassing candidacy. The day of reckoning is fast approaching for the Jeb Bush 2016 juggernaut. As we’ve mentioned before, the unique selling proposition of the Jeb Bush candidacy was built on “I’m inevitable.” The strategy | Read More »

Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Racist Affirmative Action Argument
One of the most pernicious effects of Jim Crow is that it won’t go away. Before the 1964 Civil Rights Act, racist Democrats used the Jim Crow laws to secure their political base by preventing blacks from voting and generally participating in the economic life of the nation. After 1964, progressive Democrats used the Civil Rights Act and affirmative action as a means of wedding | Read More »

Hillary Supporters Agree With Her Tax Plan, Except It’s Actually Trump’s (VIDEO)
You have likely heard the term “low information voter.” It’s attributed to people who support politicians without actually knowing what is they stand for. Often, it really doesn’t matter. They have a candidate they support and that’s it. They don’t take time to see what the candidate stands for or what policies they support or have proposed. For many it is an eye opener. But | Read More »
This One Statistic DESTROYS John Kasich’s Presidential Campaign
At 2% in national polls, 1.7% in Iowa, and down to 8% and fifth place in New Hampshire after having been in double digits there in late August and early September following a big TV ad barrage, John Kasich’s presidential campaign doesn’t need a lot of help losing. But it may still need help being put out of its misery. We can assist on that | Read More »

Donald Trump is openly talking about running as an Independent.
Remember this picture? That’s Trump holding up a signed pledge swearing to not run 3rd party. This is a pledge that came after Trump stood defiant at the first debate and said he wouldn’t rule out an independent run or wouldn’t promise to vote for the nominee. He signed this pledge after pressure from the RNC – no pledge, no debates, they said. Of course, Trump | Read More »
Barbra Streisand: Another Mean Girl Trying to Protect Hillary
As you’ve noticed, many on the Left are obsessed with the fact that Hillary Clinton is a female. Yes, we know she is. Though she has no control over this biological fact, she likes to remind us of this truth, and even describes it by using words such as “merit”. This is all entirely laughable, but it is to be expected. The existence of racism | Read More »
Pirates, the GOP, and Donald Trump
The third Pirates of the Caribbean movie, At World’s End, has two scenes that really make the rest of the nonsense we had to put up with to get to that point worth it. The first is the wedding scene in the middle of a naval battle inside of a maelstrom. The second, and more relevant, is the scene of the Pirate Council. In this scene, | Read More »
