  • PPP national poll: Trump 27, Carson 17, Rubio 13, Bush 10

    If all you’re interested in is the topline then this is the best poll for Trump in weeks. Only once since the second GOP debate had he reached as high as 26 percent in a national poll — until today. He’s still 10 points better than his closest competitor here. And although he’s dropped two points, from 29 percent to 27, since PPP published its last national poll on September 1st, no one else except for Marco Rubio has gained more than two points in that time either. Rubio picked up six points to move from fifth place to...

    Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson went toe-to-toe with the hosts of "The View" on Tuesday. It wasn't a standard presidential-candidate interview. Whoopi Goldberg's first two questions to the soft-spoken Republican were: No. 1, whether he ever yelled; and No. 2, about his claim that "Nazi Germany could happen here." "That's not what I said," Carson protested. "What I said was that most people in Nazi Germany did not believe in what Hitler was doing. But did they speak up? No," "They kept their mouths shut. And when you do that, you are compromising your freedom and the freedom of people who...

    A lot has changed since April, when Marco Rubio announced his presidential bid. Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin was the top candidate of mainstream conservative activists and donors. Jeb Bush seemed like a fund-raising juggernaut with natural appeal to the partys moderate voters, who play an underrated role in the Republican primary process. Mr. Rubio, a broadly appealing candidate but the top choice of few, looked boxed out. Today, Mr. Rubio isnt blocked. Instead, he has a big opening. Mr. Walker dropped out of the race, and Mr. Bush does not look nearly as strong as it seemed he might....

    Fiscal Policy: It isn't as ambitious as a flat tax or a national sales tax, but there's a surprising amount of sensible tax policy changes recommended in Donald Trump's tax reform plan released on Monday. He's proposing the biggest reduction in tax rates since the 1986 Tax Reform Act under Ronald Reagan, and like the Gipper's reforms, this plan would cover the costs by closing loopholes. So, bravo. Trump would cut tax rates across the board. The highest income tax rate would shrink from about 40% under current law to 25%. The top capital gains tax rate would be reduced...

    If this sounds familiar, it’s because Obama took the same attitude towards executive amnesty. Either Congress could give him what he wanted by legalizing illegals or he’d give himself what he wanted by legalizing illegals unilaterally. The president no longer loses in our system of (giggle) separation of powers, at least if he has a complacent caucus from his own party in Congress that’s willing to defend him on every power grab at their branch’s expense. Hillary’s building on that precedent now, in the middle of a surprisingly tough primary campaign, to stroke one of the few political erogenous zones...

Well, according to the man from whom much of todays conservative multimedia empire originates, that candidate is Ted Cruz.

It might seem odd, then, that her Fiorina Foundation has given half a million dollars to Planned Parenthood since 2011. The Fiorina Foundation isn't actually, legally, a foundation, per se; it's an account Fiorina and her husband hold with The Ayco Charitable Foundation, a "donor-advised fund" that stashes charitable donations for clients in case they want to quickly receive tax benefits, The Daily Beast explains.

    Obamacares survival is not a given, despite claims by the Democrats and their media allies that the Supreme Courts latest rewrite of the law means its here to stay. Most Americans still disapprove of it, and many of the laws provisions are unpopular even with important Democrat constituencies. The Cadillac tax, for example, is so reviled by the labor unions that Hillary Clinton has been forced to call for its repeal. Yet, only one of the three leading candidates for the GOP presidential nomination has both the credibility and a serious commitment to getting rid of Obamacare Ben Carson....

    Let me connect the pro-Hillary dots for you at NBC News… This is not rocket science. In fact, the effort NBC News is pouring into rehabilitating Hillary Clinton is now so painfully blatant that even left-wing CNN is calling out the Peacock Network. And NBC News is so desperate to keep a Republican out of the White House that “Saturday Night Live” has openly joined the pro-Hillary propaganda team. NBC News partners with and funnels $400 million to left-wing BuzzFeed.NBC News partners with and funnels $200 million to the even more left-wing Vox.NBC News partners with TargetSmart, a political data...

    HOUSTON, Texas — Presidential candidate Ted Cruz today released the following statement regarding flooding in South Carolina caused in part by Hurricane Joaquin:“Heidi and my prayers are with the people of South Carolina, many of whom have suffered immense loss,” Cruz said. “We fully recognize the sacrifices that law enforcement and first responders make to protect and save lives in the face of natural disasters, and we commend all who have bravely stepped up to lead rescue and recovery efforts. We are also thankful for Gov. Haley and the many state and local officials who are working around the clock...

    Challenging the liberal principle of social egalitarianism, which idealizes "equal results" instead of "equal rights." Donald Trump has shaken up todays craven political establishment like Tom Paine shook up the Tories of colonial America. He has irreverently proposed genuine solutions to the invasion of illegals. He has attacked the poltroons of Washington and the talking heads of the media. He speaks rudely and boldly. The question now is, has he also been daring enough to put forth a bold tax reform plan? The answer is yes and no. Trumps tax plan has numerous great features, but it also has one...

    The Clintons have kept reporters busy for decades, with an almost endless string of scandals following them around since Bill Clinton was first elected to public office in 1977 as Arkansas Attorney General. After Clintons two terms in the White House bookended by news reports on Whitewater and Monica Lewinsky focus shifted squarely to Hillary Clinton, who logged years in the Senate, at the State Department and on her own campaign trail.As Clinton mounts her second presidential bid this year, the particularly bruising scandal involving her email system while at the State Department continues to snap up headlines....

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, when asked if he believes the Middle East would be better today if Moammar Gadhafi of Libya and Saddam Hussein of Iraq were still in power, responded, "It's not even a contest." He related the situations in both of those countries with what is currently happening in Syria and seemed to endorse a stronger President Bashar Assad, even while admitting that he is "probably a bad guy." "You can make the case, if you look at Libya, look at what we did there it's a mess if you look at Saddam Hussein with...

    Ted Cruz is playing a slow and steady campaign, but for the firebrand Texas senator, that doesnt translate into being quiet. In the past week alone, he has stolen supporters from fellow Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul (Ky.), won the rousing support of evangelicals and had to be shut down by Senate leaders for trying to complicate efforts on a short-term funding extension with a protest vote against Planned Parenthood funding. That reflects Cruz's efforts to try to emerge as the consensus anti-establishment candidate if and when the top three outsider candidates, and his biggest rivals, peter out. Rolling out...
