    The senator's comments also marked a sharp reversal for his support of Roberts in 2005, BuzzFeed reports. The report cites Cruz's support for Roberts' nomination in a 2005 op-ed piece for the National Review and an internal memo he wrote as Texas Solicitor General praising Roberts' skill as a litigator. "I’ve worked with John and seen him argue numerous cases, and, to my mind, there’s not another appellate advocate who’s even close," Cruz wrote.

  • Gallup Poll: Donald Trump Has Highest Unfavorable Rating of Any Candidate Since 1992

    Former frontrunner Donald Trump came in second in Iowa for many reasons, but the biggest one is that he is widely disliked by most Americans. A national survey by the respected Gallup Poll, which was ignored by the news media, found that Trump is the most unlikeable presidential candidate in either party in decades. Trump is known for many things, his wealth, his gigantic ego and braggadocio, and his nasty insults of people he does not like. But most Americans have known him as the presidential candidate who led in all the polls for the GOP presidential nomination. Not anymore....

In a profanity-laced interview with Rolling Stone, the Detroit rocker said he finds Trump's campaign "entertaining as shit" and he thinks the real estate mogul will win the GOP nomination. "My feeling: Let the motherf***ing business guy run [the country] like a f***ing business," he said. "It's not really working too well running it not like a business. I mean, what business f***ing survives when they're f***ing broke?"

    The latest poll numbers are in, and Donald Trump, once again, is the clear leader. But don't expect the "You're fired" mogul to be tweeting out these results anytime soon. According to Gallup, most of Americans don't like him. In fact, three out of every five people polled view the Donald unfavorably. That's the worst tally since Gallup began tracking the data back in 1992. George H.W. Bush and his 57% can rest easy, having given up that dubious distinction.

    Barack Obama, Supreme Court justice? That has a nice ring to Hillary Clinton. Speaking at an Iowa town hall event Tuesday night, Clinton was asked what she thought of appointing President Obama to the high court if she were to become president. “I’ll tell you, that’s a great idea!” Clinton told the crowd, according to Politico. Clinton, who is competing with Sen. Bernie Sanders for the Democratic presidential nomination, said Obama likely has other plans for his post-White House life. But she said Obama is “brilliant and can set forth an argument.”

    Living legend and conservative heroine Phyllis Schlafly slammed National Review for their efforts to take down GOP frontrunner, Donald Trump. On The Laura Ingraham Show, Schlafly declared, "I don't recognize National Review as the authority on conservatism." Schlafly blasted National Review for being more eager to fight Donald Trump than they are to fight the Republican donor-class, whom Schlafly calls the Kingmakers. Schlafly said: National Review is not the authentic conservative. You know, Bill Buckley was for giving away the Panama Canal, which was an enormous issue with conservatives.

    That Donald Trump is no conservative is a proposition of which this conservative needs no convincing. On this score, the self-styled "conservative" contributors to the recent National Review symposium against Trump are correct.  It is their conservative bona fides that I challenge. For example, Glenn Beck suggests that Trump is no conservative because along with Barack Obama, Trump supported "the stimulus, the auto bailouts, and the bank bailouts." Yet Trump had neither authority nor power to make these ideas materialize.  That distinction is enjoyed by just those politicians who Beck supported. For years, Beck ran cover for George W. Bush, the 43rd president who,...

    The FBI is investigating whether members of Hillary Clinton's inner circle "cut and pasted" material from the government's classified network so that it could be sent to her private e-mail address, former State Department security officials say. Clinton and her top aides had access to a Pentagon-run classified network that goes up to the Secret level, as well as a separate system used for Top Secret communications. Somehow, highly classified information from SIPRNet, as well as even the super-secure JWICS, jumped from those closed systems to the open system and turned up in at least 1,340 of Clinton's home e-mails...

    A more detestable regime than Saudi Arabia could not be found. Arguably the most repressive regime on earth. An absolute monarchy. A Wahhabist theocratic nightmare that arms ISIS. Only North Korea may be worse, and North Korea does not put women in burqas or have any areas where female genital mutilation (FGM) is practiced. It is a close call. At least North Korea does not ban alcohol.

    Politico ^ | 1/18/16 | Matthew McWilliams
    f I asked you what most defines Donald Trump supporters, what would you say? They’re white? They’re poor? They’re uneducated? You’d be wrong. In fact, I’ve found a single statistically significant variable predicts whether a voter supports Trump—and it’s not race, income or education levels: It’s authoritarianism. That’s right, Trump’s electoral strength—and his staying power—have been buoyed, above all, by Americans with authoritarian inclinations. And because of the prevalence of authoritarians in the American electorate, among Democrats as well as Republicans, it’s very possible that Trump’s fan base will continue to grow. My finding is the result of a national...

It began before Obama was elected, while President Bush was still in office, and has since only gained in strength and resolve, and the GOP establishment has been slow to notice or grasp what is happening....

Now, the stage is set for a full blown sectarian showdown complete with protests by oppressed Shiites in the Gulf states, anti-Sunni sentiment in Iran and Iraq, and, in a worst case scenario, a direct (as opposed to a proxy) conflict between the Saudis and the Iranians....

During the heat of the 2008 campaign, Trump took to his own blog to praise Clinton, writing that she’d make a great president. “Hillary Clinton said she’d consider naming Barack Obama as her vice-president when she gets the nomination, but she’s nowhere near a shoo-in,” wrote The Donald...

    Iconic American comedian Jerry Lewis slammed Barack Obama and praised Donald Trump in an interview on World Over with Raymond Arroyo. Lewis blasted Obama for his failed non-existent leadership. “Refugees should stay where the hell they are,” said Lewis bluntly. “Hey, no one has worked harder for the human condition than I have, but they’re not part of the human condition. If 11 guys in the group of 10,000 are ISIS—how can I take that chance?” Lewis is not alone in this feeling; as of last month at least 31 governors rejected President Obama’s push to accept Syrian refugees into...

    President Barack Obama announced two years ago he would curtail eavesdropping on friendly heads of state after the world learned the reach of long-secret U.S. surveillance programs. But behind the scenes, the White House decided to keep certain allies under close watch, current and former U.S. officials said. Topping the list was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The U.S., pursuing a nuclear arms agreement with Iran at the time, captured communications between Mr. Netanyahu and his aides that inflamed mistrust between the two countries and planted a political minefield at home when Mr. Netanyahu later took his campaign against the...

    Jerry Lewis criticized President Obama and praised Donald Trump in an interview on World Over with Raymond Arroyo; the iconic comedian also slammed the Syrian refugee program, telling Arroyo "refugees should stay where the hell they are." "No one has worked harder for the human condition than I have, but they’re not part of the human condition," Lewis continued. "If 11 guys in the group of 10,000 are ISIS, how can I take the chance? I don't want to lose another Frenchman or another Englishman. That bothers me." Lewis suggested the United States take a military solution to ISIS. "Why...
  • Is this the first EVER finished Koran? Fragments at Birmingham University may belong to the original

    Fragments of the oldest Koran in existence, which were discovered at a British university library, could be from the original copy of the Muslim holy book. Leading academic Jamal bin Huwareib believes the pages found at Birmingham University earlier this year are from the first assembled Koran by the Prophet Muhammad's close friend Abu Bakr. The pages, thought to be between 1,448 and 1,371 years old, were discovered bound within the pages of another Koran from the late seventh century at the university's library.

    Republican leaders are currently thrashing about - holding secret meetings, issuing confidential memos and making public denunciations - as they approach a state of near panic over what Donald Trump is doing to their party. It's enough to make some believe that Mr Trump may not have the Republican establishment's best interests at heart. Could Donald Trump be a secret double-agent, sent by Democrats to destroy their party from within?

    DES MOINES, Iowa — One friendly re-tweet didn't mean Donald Trump wasn't ready and willing to go after Sen. Ted Cruz. The two Republicans were rivals largely in name only until Friday night, when Trump questioned Cruz's stance on renewable fuel as well as his faith. Asked by one attendee if Cruz doesn't support the renewable fuel standard because of his "ties to big oil," Trump responded, "yes." "He's from Texas. Lot of oil in Texas," Trump said. Then Trump posed a question that could be poisonous to Cruz's rise in the ethanol-friendly state: "If Ted Cruz is against ethanol,...

    The liberal media and Republican party elites erupted today after Donald Trump announced his plan to ban Muslim immigrants from the US until the government can assure it is safe to do so. But Democrat Jimmy Carter did the same thing, and much more during the Iranian hostage crisis. During the Iranian hostage crisis, Carter issued a number of orders to put pressure on Iran. Among these, Iranians were banned from entering the United States unless they oppose the Shiite Islamist regime or had a medical emergency. During the Iranian hostage crisis, Carter issued a number of orders to put...

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released a new Benghazi email from then-Department of Defense Chief of Staff Jeremy Bash to State Department leadership immediately offering “forces that could move to Benghazi” during the terrorist attack on the U.S. Special Mission Compound in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. In an email sent to top Department of State officials, at 7:19 p.m. ET, only hours after the attack had begun, Bash says, “we have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak.” The Obama administration redacted the details of the military forces available,...

    I suppose that this was probably pretty inevitable. Lt. Col. Ralph Peters has been suspended by FoxNews for two weeks after calling Obama a "p***y" on air last night, as he can be seen doing here, with video from our own Caleb Howe: [VIDEO] I do not know Lt. Col. Ralph Peters. In fact, until this morning I had literally never heard of him. However, I find it hilarious to imagine how a military man so crusty that he called the President of the United States a "p***y" live on air probably reacted to the news when it was handed...
