Barack Obama’s Budget an Endorsement of Bernie Sanders?

That is certainly what it seems to be, given his final budget submission to Congress. Ever a troll to the very end, President Barack Obama has turned in a budget that has as much chance of passing as every other budget he’s submitted to Congress, even when the Democrats were in charge. This budget calls for increased spending on Medicaid, education, and clean energy and | Read More »

John Kasich Does Not Enjoy RedState

Just now on CNN, Kasich surrogate John Sununu, Jr. was asked about why conservatives do not like John Kasich. He started rattling off some talking points, then host Carol Costello dropped two separate RedState quotes on him. He didn’t seem to enjoy the experience very much. Take a look:

Trump Spox: You Know, the Founding Fathers Called Each other “P*ssy” All the Time

Last night on stage at one of his events, the hugest, classiest person ever to run for President called Ted Cruz a “p*ssy” on stage. You can watch the video here for yourself. Of course, Trump was too cowardly to own the childish insult himself, but of course that’s exactly what he did. This morning on CNN, Alice Stewart (Ted Cruz spox) and Katrina Pierson | Read More »

This OH GOP Official Endorsed John Kasich Yet His PAC Gave Thousands To Democrats

Who is Matthew Cox? Many people outside of Ohio probably have no idea. Cox is an attorney and lobbyist, President of Cox Consulting Group. Cox also works with a company called GOP Convention Strategies. While not affiliated officially with the Republican National Committee, the firm promises to connect their clients with high powered people in government, the RNC, the media and private organizations. Cox is also | Read More »

West Virginia Sends Right-to-Work Bill to Governor’s Desk

It’s all but official; West Virginia is overwhelmingly likely to become the nation’s 26th state to expand both worker freedom and economic opportunity by adopting a Right-to-Work law. If adopted, the law (the Workplace Freedom Act in West Virginia) would make it illegal to require employees to join a union as a condition of employment. Ending this scheme of forced unionism exemplifies the states’ ability | Read More »

What Was That Chris Christie Was Saying about “Pat Answers”?

You know, Saturday night’s debate was just the last piece of evidence in a pretty long string that Chris Christie is a fundamentally dishonest person. When you run for President, you have to give hundreds if not thousands of speeches over a very short time period. You get asked the same question – or variations on it – by hundreds of members of the media. | Read More »

Here comes the next big corporate bailout?

In the past we’ve seen large, well-connected businesses run into trouble, and then run to government to keep afloat and unafraid of competition. The airlines do it, GM did it, the banks did it, and every time Democrats and establishment Republicans oblige. We appear to have found the next industry cozy with politicians that’s going to ask for one.

Will Hillary Supporters Engage in Some Operation Chaos Tonight?

Senior Moment: Tech Illiterate Clinton Baffled And Alarmed By Common Tech Terms

The hip young party of hip young youngsters has two people still running for the nomination for President at an average age of 71 years. Of the two oldsters running, one of them today was baffled and alarmed when a hip young voter said his friend’s “selfie” went “viral.” “You went viral?” Mrs. Clinton said to the man’s friend. “That sounds like some kind of | Read More »

The Trump Ground Game Is A huuuuge loser

The Donald’s lack of concern or ignorance about the basic technique of American politics surely contributed to Trump’s defeat by the excellent ground game of Sen. Ted Cruz’ campaign. Worse Trump’s failed Iowa effort, led by Chuck Laudner who ran Santorum’s 2012 Iowa ground game, was stronger than Trumps operation in New Hampshire.

Here Are 3 Things Every Employer* Should Know About The DOL’s Upcoming “Persuader Rules”

Next month, the Department of Labor is expected to release its “final” rule on the nearly five-year old scheme to require employers and their service providers (e.g., advisors, attorneys, consultants, survey companies, and even website developers) to report their financial arrangements, as well as the payments made and received. They’re known as the “persuader rules” and they will, very likely, affect every employer* in the U.S. | Read More »

Ben Carson is Open to Being Trump’s VP

At this point, it certainly seems like he might be more than open to it, in fact. Even though Trump once said that Carson was “incurably and pathologically diseased, kind of like a pedophile,” Trump has been transparently playing white knight for Carson on the ridiculous allegation that Cruz cost Carson any significant number of votes, and Carson seems to be willingly playing along. Here | Read More »

That having been said, this particular news story takes the cake. You will absolutely not believe what THIS Florida man was charged with: Bail set for Jupiter man accused of throwing gator into Wendy’s Let’s just | Read More »

Is Carson suspending his campaign (again)?

Politico has reported that presidential candidate, Ben Carson, will be skipping his own primary party to head down to South Carolina, the next stop in the presidential nomination circuit. The retired neurosurgeon will instead fly to South Carolina in the afternoon, his campaign said. Following Tuesday’s first-in-the-nation primary in New Hampshire, South Carolina Republicans will vote next, on Feb. 20. It has to be asked | Read More »

Should State Legislators Embrace Bernie Sanders’ Policy?

Bernie Sanders is posturing against a reasonable reform he once supported – a commonsense lawsuit reform protecting gun manufacturers from scheming theories of liability. He has received undue pressure in progressive circles to backtrack his position and introduce legislation to undo this fair reform. In 2005, then-Representative Sanders voted for a largely symbolic bill that confirms common sense in lawsuit laws, and he voted with 59 Democrats and 223 | Read More »

Study: The Media Responded to Cruz Winning Iowa by Covering Him LESS

We have already covered at some length how the media – especially the network news – pays disproportionate attention to Donald Trump, relative to his position in the polls. One of the things that’s been most interesting is that they have covered Trump over five times more than Cruz, who is often not even the second most covered candidate, even though he has been #2 | Read More »

Trump’s Use of Eminent Domain is a Problem of Character, Not Politics

Eminent domain is part of the United States Constitution for a reason. It can be incredibly useful for the sake of the common good of the nation when applied properly. Donald Trump has a history of utilizing it for projects that do not benefit the common good. In fact, the way that he’s used eminent domain should be drawing very pointed investigations into the politicians | Read More »

DC trains barely avert head-on collision, Obama admin blames everyone else #WMATA

On Wednesday, January 27, a DC subway train was stopped at the Smithsonian station, near the site of the recent derailment. Passengers were getting on and off the train. That train came dangerously close to a head-on collision due to completely avoidable failures, and the Obama administration is seeking to blame everyone but itself.

Marco Rubio’s Biggest Flaw

Accused of everything from being a part of the establishment to being a robot, Marco Rubio has somehow defied the odds and outperformed expectations. It’s a credit to Rubio’s bona fides that all the right people (read: The Media) are attacking him as too much of a robot now so soon after they praised his ability to pull out a personal win in Iowa. However, | Read More »
